FAQ

What should I wear?

When booking a session with Erica Colvin Photography part of our pre consultation will be guidance on how to dress you and your family. We can develop a pinterest board for inspiration, look at some online options for clothing, build from the wardrobe you currently have as well! It’s all a part of the custom experience here!

What is Posed Newborn Photography?

Posed Newborn Photography takes a bit more time and preparation. I am now shooting these sessions in my studio in North Wales during the weekday. (I will travel to your home for an additional fee) In this type of session I focus mainly on posing your sleeping baby. Therefore these sessions take longer. I also plan a few parent and baby, parent and sibling, and whole family shots. However the main focus in this session is to capture that itty bitty newborn. Weekend appointments may be available as well, but I’ve found that photographing your newborn during the week has allowed parents to have more time visiting with family and loved ones on weekends.

I have also created a pinterest board of my work to give you more examples of what this style of photography looks like.Posed Newborn Board

Do you offer birth photography?

Eventually birth will be the majority of what I shoot. But for the time being while my children are still very young, I only offer limited birth sessions. Please message me to inquire additional information on birth sessions.

What is a Fresh 48 Session?

A Fresh 48 session has quite a few names, it can also be called a “Hello World″ or “First Look” etc. I started this trend in 2011 when I had a friend come in and professionally photograph Drew meeting his newly born brother, Thomas at the hospital. Okay I kid I kid; I certainly didn’t invent this concept, but those pictures are some of my absolute favorite ever take of my family.  This session takes place at the hospital from 4-48 hrs after birth and captures all those little details of a super fresh new babe.

Fresh 48 pictures will be in the style of lifestyle photography – unposed, natural or available light. Baby in the bassinet, baby with mom, baby with dad, baby meeting siblings, etc.

When should I book a maternity session?

I like to photograph maternity sessions from 30-36 weeks. This is a timeframe that you still feel comfortable in your body. Maternity sessions are offered as milestone sessions, I incorporate fur siblings, siblings, and dad; but the majority of the session is of capturing the beauty and essence of mom.

When should I book a newborn session?

I photograph 3-6 newborns a month. In order to have the most personalized session possible booking me as your newborn photographer is ideal 8 weeks before your due date. This way we can pre communicate about the session expectations, what your interests are, and what colors/themes/props we will add into your session. This also allows time for me to possibly order a few special items for your little one.

Upon booking a newborn session with me you will receive a few instructions and a booklet. Doing a posed session at my home is much more prep for me than it is for you. 😀 Be prepared to get a bit of rest while you are here!

Looking forward to meeting you! Contact me here to book your session or ask  any questions!
