It is already August, time flies so fast nowadays. I had multiple people calling me about gift certificates for their loved ones for baby showers. What a great idea. If it’s your dear friend, sister or co worker is having a baby shower, I think it is the best gift that you can give her. As a New Jersey Maternity Photographer, I suggest getting a certificate for both sessions, the maternity and newborn. Pregnancy portraits are very important and I give a full service to my client. First, I do the consultation on the wardrobe, location, and style of the portrait session. The day of the portrait session we create beautiful photos and in a couple of weeks, I let client view them online. When a baby arrives, I try to come in a week after the birth. Babies at first couple of weeks are very sleepy and less active, it helps to take wonderful photos of them, without all the little dramas they create when they are a little mature. The newborn portraits I show online as well and my client can pick about 40-45 beautiful photos for the baby’s first album including maternity portraits and two 16×20 portraits from either session and 4 -8×10 prints. This package is $1400 plus tax but you can split the bill with couple more people to create the top of the line gift.
Photos will be the most cherished and the most memorable gift because out of all the gifts that will be given to the future mother, this gift will stay with her for ever. Many things after one year will be tossed away or given away or left on the curb. Babies grow up fast and many things become very unnecessary. Instead of filling up your gift basket with little things, why don’t you give her something special? She will be pampered twice, her baby will be the best model and she also gets items that she can hold on to and pass it to her future generations.
Here is the sample of the album and before and after from maternity session.
