          Your  date  is  officially  booked  on  my  calendar  once  the  deposit  has  been  paid  and  the  questionnaire  filled  out.  The  answers   you  give  me  on  your  questionnaire  are  very  important  to  the  outcome  of  your  session.  It  allows  me  to  see  your  ideas  and   goals  for  the  session,  what  type  of  location  you  are  leaning  towards,  what  products  you  are  most  interested  in  ordering   and  what  you  plan  on  doing  with  your  photos.  Before  your  session  please  read  this  online  guide  in  depth,  especially  the   what  to  wear  section.  I  am  more  than  happy  to  help  in  this  area  if  needed!

        A  normal  portrait  session  lasts  between  1-­2  hours.  We  will  meet  at  an  agreed  upon  location  and  make  your  photos  a  reality!   The  best  time  for  photos  is  starting  1-­2  hours  before  sunset  (this  time  varies  throughout  the  year).  During  your  session  you  can sit  back  and  relax  while  I  take  over  to  make  your  images  a  reality!

       I  know  the  anticipation  of  seeing  your  photos  can  be  great,  so  I  try  to  get  a  little  sneak  peak  of  your  photos  up  on  my   Facebook  business  page  the  same  evening  or  the  day  after  your  session.  I  will  select  the  best  35+  photos  from  your  session   and  hand  edit  them  to  be  proofed  to  you  in  an  online  gallery.  Within  2  weeks  of  your  session  you  will  be  notified  via  email   that  your  gallery  is  ready.  Your  high  resolution  images  can  be  downloaded  directly  from  the  gallery  and  you  are  advised  to   back  them  up  on  your  computer  as  soon  as  possible.  You  are  encouraged  to  share  the  link  to  your  gallery  with  any  friends   and  family  who  you  think  might  be  interested  in  also  ordering  products.  If  you  prefer  an  in  person  ordering  session  please   let  me  know!

."5&3/*5:/&8#03/4        Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  best  that  we  schedule  your  maternity  photos   around  the  32-­36  week  mark.  We  want  your  belly  to  be   beautiful  and  round  but  it  would  be  best  to  get  the  shots   before  you  are  too  uncomfortable.  I  mostly  shoot  in   organic,  natural  settings  so  neutral  tones  for  clothing   that  complement  that  work  best.  Make  sure  you  wear   something  tight  fitting  so  your  belly  is  accented!

       Newborn  sessions  take  place  between  5-­12  days  of  life   in  my  home  studio.  Please  have  someone  contact  me  as   soon  as  the  baby  is  born  so  we  can  confirm  the  time  of   your  session.  I  take  a  very  natural  approach  to   newborns  and  prefer  to  shoot  them  on  only  cream  and   black  with  wraps  and  very  minimal  posing.  Come   prepared  to  feed  your  baby  as  often  as  they  need  it.   Also  a  pacifier  is  a  good  idea.  It  is  extremely  helpful  if   the  morning  of  your  session  baby  is  kept  more  awake  and  stimulated  than  normal,  so  they  are  tired   and  cozy  when  they  arrive.  Please  dress  your  newborn  in  something  that  can  be  removed  without   going  over  their  head  and  have  their  diaper  on  a  bit  looser  than  normal  to  avoid  marks.  I  keep  my   home  around  85  degrees  on  session  days  to  keep  baby  nice  and  toasty  so  be  sure  to  dress  appropriately.   Newborn  sessions  last  approximately  2  hours  and  I  completely  take  over,  letting  you  have  a  break  to   watch,  and  relax.  Bottled  water  is  provided  but  you  are  more  than  welcome  to  bring  your  own  snacks   to  the  session. *A  note  about  siblings:  Depending  on  the  age  of  the  siblings  it  is  best  that  they  are  only  present  during  the   beginning  of  your  session.  We  will  take  their  photos  first  thing  and  then  I  reccomend  Dad  or  a  grandparent   take  them  home.  This  keeps  focus  on  the  newborn  and  facilitates  the  calm  sleepy  environment.

Please  feel  at  ease  at  your  session.  If  pressured   to  â&#x20AC;&#x153;smileâ&#x20AC;?,  natural  expressions  may  be  lost.   Many  of  the  great  images  I  capture  are  the   â&#x20AC;&#x153;in-­betweenâ&#x20AC;?  shots,  when  the  subject  relaxes  &   smiles.  

Good  choices  in  clothing  is  one  of  the  key  elements   of  a  great  photo  session!  For  group  sessions,  clothing   should  be  coordinated  but  not  matching.

Photo  sessions  are  work  for  both  subject  and   photographer  but  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve  got  tricks  that  make  it   fun  &  easy  so  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  worry  and  donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  try  too  hard!   Relax  and  ejoy  this  time  with  yout  family!

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  important  that  to  me  that  your  beauty  and  connection is  not  overpowered  by  distracting  and  bright  clothing.  I   want  your  eye  to  be  drawn  to  your  faces  and  emotion   instead  what  you  are  wearing. Clothing  should  be  simple  and  timeless.  Look  for  various textures,  layers,  and  neutral  tones.  Bright  colors,  busy   prints,  checkered  patterns,  and  stiff  dress  shirts  do  not photograph  well.Neutral  colors  look  great  for  all  seasons   and  complement  outdoor  locations.     Colors  to  choose  from:  white,  cream,  beige,  tan,  blush   pink,  pale  peach,  and  gray. Beautiful  textures  are  a  great  way  to  add  interest  to  your clothing  while  keeping  the  palette  simple. Textures  I  love:  lace,  waffle/thermal,  linen,  cashmere, cable  knits,  fair  isle  knit,  fur,  subtle  sparkle,  soft   metallics.   All  maternity,  newborn,  and  baby  session  clients  have  access   to  my  beautiful  wardrobe  for  their  sessions.    Pieces  are   available  in  a  variety  of  sizes  and  silhouettes  and  compliment   the  signature  style  of  imagery  that  my  clients  and  I  love.  If   you  would  like  to  use  studio  clothing  for  your  session    I reccommend  coming  a  few  minutes  early  to  go  over  your options.  Please  bring  your  own  tank  tops,  leggings,  nude   strapless  bras,  and  nude  underwear  to  wear.   My  favorite  places  to  shop  are  Zara,Gap,  JCrew.   Anthropologie,  Free  People,  and  ASOS. I  spend  a  lot  of  time  collecting  what  to  wear  ideas  on Pinterest.  Please  visit  my  board  to  see  lots  of  great   examples  for  your  session:   www.pinterest.com/bethneybackhaus/what-­to-­wear-­clients/

Bethney  did  a  fantastic  job  shooting  our  first   family  photo  shoot  with  our  son!  She  is  wonderful  at   taking  outdoor  shots,  finding  great  locations,  and   capturing  natural  light!  I  love  all  her  work!  I  would   recommend  her  for  anything  indoor  or  outdoor!   She  will  do  well  with  all  ages  &  (being  a  lovely  mommy   herself)  she  is  particularly  talented  at  shooting  kids!

Bethney  did  a  fabulous  job  photographing  my   baby  girl  who  was  8  months  at  the  time  of  the   session.  I  was  sothrilled  with  how  Bethney  was  able   to  capture  her  personality.  The  photographs  are   beautiful  and  I  will  cherish  them  forever.  I  would   recommend  her  to  anyone  looking  for  a  talented  and   creative  photographer.  I  know  I  will  be  using  her  again!
