Maternity and Newborn Photography
One of the greatest legacies you can leave behind for future generations of your family are beautiful portraits. There is something so intriguing about time standing still in a photograph. Preserving the present day is so important. We all get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of daily life that it can be hard to make time for things such as professional photos. So many of us take thousands of pictures over the lives of our cell phones only for them to end up dying with the phone or being trapped on a hard drive. I don't want you to make that mistake. I encourage you to make the time and invest in portraits that will last a lifetime and beyond. Your children and your children's children will thank you for it.
What kind of sessions are offered?
Antiquity Photography provides maternity photography, newborn photography, children's photography and family photography in addition to engagement and wedding photography.
Where will my shoot take place?
Shoots generally occur outdoors, with the exception of newborn shoots. Newborn sessions will take place in the client's home. Sessions will generally take place in the Williamsport, Bloomsburg or Lewisburg area. However, traveling to areas beyond the Susquehanna Valley is not a problem. I'm always on the lookout for great settings and have many beautiful locations at which I like to shoot. I am always open to suggestions on other locations and love to shoot on my clients' own properties as well.
What if my children don't cooperate?
I'm not going to sugarcoat things...photo sessions can be stressful! Trying to get to the session on time, getting the kids dressed, making sure everyone's hair looks good. My job is to make the process as easy for you as possible! I'm here to help you wrangle the children, fix their hair, Photoshop out boo-boos and do anything else that helps create a beautiful photo. I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve for getting great expressions and smiles. I have lots of patience and empathy. I will do everything I can to make sure we walk away from the shoot with gorgeous images. Honestly, children don't even have to "cooperate" to be able to get good images of them. So, please don't worry! Just enjoy spending some time as a family and I'll do the hard parts.
When should I schedule my session?
I recommend scheduling portraits sessions about 6 weeks before you would like it to take place. If you are wanting to do a fall foliage session, I recommend booking a few months prior to fall as that time of year is very busy for photography.
Maternity sessions should be scheduled for when the mom-to-be is 32-35 weeks along. By that point she will be showing nicely, but hopefully not feeling uncomfortable.
Newborn sessions are a little unpredictable since no one knows for sure when the baby will arrive. Typically, new parents will contact me at any point during pregnancy to make me aware of their due date. Then, once baby is home from the hospital, they contact me and we schedule a shoot as soon as possible. Ideally, newborn shoots will take place in the first two weeks after birth.
Family Sessions, Newborn and Children's Sessions will pay this fee at the time of the session. The fee covers shooting and file processing time. Prints, Packages, and Digital Products are ordered separately.
