– PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE –
This is where the excitement starts! For those clients wishing to invest in wall art portraits for their home or an heirloom album for their children, at the complimentary consultation we get to talk about what we can do to create the ideal session for you. When your session day arrives, we’ll have a plan so that everything goes smoothly.
We pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and a commitment to taking care of you. We handle everything from the moment you book your session to personally delivering you prints and products to your home. Soon after the pre-session consultation, we will provide you with a welcome packet that will have information about everything you need to know to prepare for the newborn session from a product and pricing catalog to what to wear.
Our newborn and milestone baby plan sessions are offered to create the perfect photographic art that is specially designed for your space. This can include a wall portrait, an heirloom album and digital images. Studio sessions take place at our beautiful home studio in Frisco, Texas. The studio provides an elegant and relaxed environment where we create a look that is timeless and sophisticated no matter what the weather.
We have lots of time during the newborn session so we encourage you to sit back, relax, watch a movie and even nap in our client lounge knowing that your little one is in safe and experienced hands. Let us take care of you while you are here! Our goal is to not only provide you with the best newborn portraits, but also the best customer experience that allows you the opportunity to get some much needed rest. Amenities include breakfast or lunch, coffee, snacks, movies, magazines, a private bathroom and a private client lounge with a comfortable couch and fully stocked changing station.
GALLERY REVEAL AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT
You will get to see your images projected on screen in a slide show set to music during your Gallery Reveal and Ordering appointment 1-2 weeks after your session. We will help you with all of your final decisions on images and products, making life a little easier for you. And, we can use snapshots of your home that you send us to show you what your images will look like right on your wall! We recommend that all decision makers be in attendance at this appointment as all artwork orders are placed during this appointment. This is one of the best parts – so please feel free to bring as many people as you would like. But don’t worry! If family lives out of town, a gallery of your purchased images can be posted online for them to view following the ordering appointment.
DIGITAL VS. PRINT
As a new mom, you barely have time to do anything other than take care of your little one, nevertheless yourself. Let us take one thing off of your plate and check that wall portrait or baby photo album off of the list! Our goal at Alicia Skinner Photography is to not only provide the best customer experience and newborn portraits, but to also take care of you!
With our busy lifestyles, it’s so easy to take those digital files for granted and let them remain on your hard drive where they are never seen. Newborn and baby photography is an investment that should not only be visible every day, but cherished as a constant reminder of how thankful you are for your little family.
Our prints and canvases add elegance, comfort and warmth to your house and our albums allow you to eventually pass down the newborn and first year images to your child as one of the most treasured heirlooms he or she will ever receive. Our prints and products are archival, letting you rest assured that they will indeed be transferred down for generations to come.
And there’s an added bonus! Did you know that research studies have proven that prominently displayed portraits of the family improve a child’s self-esteem?
We highly recommend considering a print investment because of all of these benefits. However, we do offer both digital only packages and digital + print packages so that you can choose whatever best fits your needs.
