FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

kim_maternity2015-60

MATERNITY

SCHEDULE

Schedule whenever you feel best in front of the camera! Anytime between 26 and 36 weeks is fine. Some women (like yours truly) show early and would rather be photographed sooner than later. Others want to capture the bump as close to delivery as possible. I prefer not to schedule sessions after 36 weeks, as babies do come early and you can miss the chance at the session.

LOCATION

Choose from one of the following Seattle locations (or add $50 for a custom location)

Magnuson Park
Horticulture Center
UW Campus

DURATION

30 minutes

SHOT LIST

mom alone – up close + full length
mom + partner if applicable
family
siblings and belly if applicable
detail shots of belly
props if requested (2 max please)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Some women love being pregnant and feel it’s their most beautiful time of life. Others get a little self-conscious with their changing bodies. Having grown 2 human beings myself, I know how much an expecting woman appreciates flattering photos. When shooting, I will choose the best angles and direct you to the most appealing poses. The session will be relaxed and fun.

NEWBORN

SCHEDULE

Schedule your session a week or two after your due date. If baby arrives early or late, you’re recovering from surgery, baby needs extra care at the hospital, or it’s just too exhausting to think of a photo shoot that soon, I’m happy to reschedule for a better time. Because my style is candid and natural, I don’t need to photograph newborns in a set period of time when they’re most sleepy and malleable. We shoot when you’re ready!

LOCATION

Sessions take place in the client’s home. If you feel your home is too dark, we can use a friend or family member’s home instead.

DURATION

An hour and a half. More or less depending on how often baby stops for a feeding. 

SHOT LIST

individual portraits of baby
family portraits
baby with each parent
baby with sibling(s) if applicable
details of baby’s fingers and toes
detail shots of the nursery
nursing photos, upon request
grandparents with baby, upon request

WHAT TO EXPECT

I work through my shot list (above) in no particular order. For baby’s individual photos, I’ll use the crib, bed, or couch, and bring a stack of clean, fluffy blankets to switch out “backgrounds”. If you’d rather use your own blankets, that’s okay too. I have a portable heater to keep baby cozy and comfortable. If you’d like nursing photos, I’m happy to take those – it’s a beautiful bond between mama and child.

As parents, your job is to take care of baby as you would if I wasn’t there. I work around you, not the other way around. My job is to walk you through the shoot, direct you on how to pose, and keep track of the shot list. I want to make it as relaxing an experience as possible.

Grandparents are welcome to be part of the session – it’s beautiful to see the whole family in love with a baby! It can be overwhelming for new parents to have a room full of people during the entire session though. Once the grandparents have had their picture taken, it’s okay to excuse them for a walk or an errand so we can turn the focus back on your new family and baby.

BABY + FAMILY

SCHEDULE

Schedule anytime of the year you like! I prefer to shoot an hour after sunrise, or an hour before sunset for the prettiest light. If these times don’t work for your child’s schedule, email me and we can adjust our start for when they’re happiest. Summer is a great time for warm weather and pretty sunsets. Fall is great if you want a current photo for the holiday card, or like the pretty colors. Summer + Fall are my busiest seasons, so please book early.

Popular milestone baby sessions are 6 months and 1 year. Most babies don’t sit up until 7 months, so you’re welcome to do that time if you prefer a sitting up photo.

LOCATION

On location at a Seattle park of your choice, in your home, or in my Pioneer Square studio. See my outdoor location list here. You’re always welcome to shoot at home. Travel fees apply for shoots more than 30 minutes outside the 98115 zip code

DURATION

1 Hour + 1 location for Classic sessions. 2 hours and 2 locations for Signature Sessions

SHOT LIST

family portrait
family portrait with pet, if applicable
individual of each child
siblings together
siblings with each parent
lots of candids

WHAT TO EXPECT

Fun! I keep my sessions relaxed, but also pretty fast moving. I find if we take too much time, kids fall apart and adults get worn out. I’ll play games, sing songs, and use a few tricks learned over the years to bring out the most candid smiles and expressions. I usually get all the shots in the first half the shoot, so if kiddos melt halfway through, we got what we need. The second half the shoot is for variety and more candids.


GET READY FOR YOUR SHOOT

WHAT TO WEAR

noun_38074
Clothing choice is ultimately up to your personal style, though I recommend choosing 3 colors, and dressing within that palette. Coordinated but not matching is the goal. Trendy styles will date your photos quickly, but classic looks make for timeless images. Outfit changes are fine for all shoots except minis – they go too fast! See my Pinterest album for style ideas.

WHAT TO BRING

noun_6843
For sessions with kids, please bring snacks, blankets, or lovies that will make them feel at ease. A treat for the end of the session is a great incentive! For outdoor sessions, please bring a blanket to sit on. It’s nice to have a heavy one underneath and a pretty one on top when the ground is damp.

PROPS

noun_611
I don’t consider myself a prop photographer, but will accommodate 1 or 2 if you have a particular announcement or Pinterest photo you’d like to create. Some examples are sonogram photos or baby shoes at maternity sessions, teddy bears for milestone shoots, and signs for engagement or family photos.


PETS

noun_378245
Are welcome! Just bring a treat for dogs so I can get their attention, and a leash so we can tie them up for non-pet poses. I love animals, and once had a hedgehog come to a shoot!

CONFIRMATION

noun_15544
A week before your shoot you will receive an email confirmation of your appointment time. If you haven’t chosen a location yet, we can confirm this over email (as well as a meeting spot). You are welcome to email any last questions too.

RAIN

noun_9398
Wet weather is common in the Northwest. If it’s looking like rain, I usually like to wait until the night before or morning of your session to make the call, as sometimes the sun comes out just in time. If it’s truly a rainy day, you can have your session at UW Campus (where I have covered locations scouted), opt for a studio day, or raincheck until we get a dry forecast (up to 2 reschedules please).


DELIVERY + DISPLAY

EDITING

noun_217915
Edits included color and exposure correction, sharpening, noise reduction, tone curve adjustment, a light airbrush, and an artistic edit. I want your photos to look top notch, but also natural, clean, and classic. Custom airbrushing (i.e. removing black eyes, bruises, or teeth whitening) is not standard, but can be added for a fee.

GALLERY

noun_17800
All the good images from your session will be edited and delivered in a gallery 2-3 weeks after your session (Summer and Fall are my busy seasons). In the meantime, I can post a teaser to Facebook or Instagram with your permission.

DOWNLOAD

noun_196447
After you have determined you favorites, you will mark your final images (number dependent on package chosen) with a star in your gallery. Email me when you’re done and I will send a link where you can download the files. Can’t narrow down? You can purchase additional images, or the entire gallery, if you like.


PRINTS + PRODUCTS

noun_137309
You can order prints, canvases, phone cases, and other products directly from your gallery. I’ve set my pricing to be affordable because I believe your professional photo experience should be completed with professional quality prints.

USB + MINI BOOK

noun_69639

Newborn, Classic, and Signature Sessions all receive a USB and accordion mini book as part of the package. These will be shipped to your door after you have chosen your favorites.

SHARING

noun_244900

Photos are meant to be enjoyed and shared! Feel free to share your gallery with family and friends. They can order digital files and prints too. You can post your final images to social media too. I just ask that you note me as the photographer, include a link to my website (or @schedlerphoto on Instagram) and do not use filters or edit the photo in any way. Thank you for the consideration!
