… Time cannot be rewinded, but it can be paused …

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen

Thank You very much for Your interest in my photos and my offer. I will happily perform a newborn session of Your Little One. It will be a wonderful souvenir for a lifetime for You and for Your child. As a mother of three children, I experience how fleeting moments are, how many things we forget, how fast time flies. That’s why in every session I put all my heart and skills because I know how important it is for You to capture the uniqueness and delicacy of You Little One.

Neonatal pictures are made between the third and fourteenth day of a child’s life, it is recommended to make it up to the tenth day of the child’s life – at this age the Little One sleeps peacefully and deeply, allowing for a safe and comfortable session. After the fourteenth day of the child’s life, his time of activity definitely increases, The Little one is not as flexible, as it was in his mother’s tummy and it’s hard to take good pictures, but it’s the pictures of sleeping and nicely arranged babies are the most tender.

I invite You to my comfortable children’s photography studio which is located in Lublin, at ul. Harnasie 11 (Czechów). The studio is fully prepared for parents and newborn – there is a changing table, a couch for feeding, it is warm, nice and safe. 

In my studio, I try to make You feel like at home.

I provide everything that is necessary for the session – clothes to choose from, blankets, accessories, backgrounds. All You need for the Little One are only “diapers”, washable nappies (about 5 pieces), handkerchiefs for baby and milk (unless mommy is breastfeeding) and two thin blankets.

All accessories that I have at disposal for the session are of the highest possible quality, imported from around the world, beautiful and unique. I choose them with attention to every detail, in order to provide You with a high level of service and unforgettable impressions in the pictures. Your photographs will, thus be full of warmth and style, without the unnecessary kitsch and cheapness that so often dominates in unprofessional neonatal sessions.

I would like to assure You, that each session takes place with respect and understanding of all the needs of the child – we have time for feeding, for changing and for hugging. I do not put the child in positions that raise his opposition. It’s the child that dictates the conditions of the session and we, adults, have to adapt to it. Therefore, I am asking for understanding that despite our efforts, everything is not always as planned at the beginning. I do not accept “orders” for any specific positions of the newborn – not every child wants, e.g. to lie on the tummy or on the back.

Even if it is Your first child, please remember that I am the mother of three children. I guarantee that I can take care of a newborn baby, I understand his needs and humor, I know how to obey the rules of safety and hygiene. All the clothes and blankets I use for the sessions are always washed in a hypoallergenic powder for babies and the accessories are washed, so as to maintain the necessary hygiene and safety rules.

The session lasts from one and a half to four hours – usually we start at 9 am.

I take photos from Monday to Friday. I do not take advance payments for the signing up for the session. I do not commute to Customers (even for additional payment).

Each photo that I give You is subjected to the author’s, professional, careful editing.

I pre-arrange the session from the first weeks of pregnancy until the filling of places in a given period. Then, right after the birth, still from the hospital, please contact me (SMS, email or Facebook) and give me information that the Little One is already in the world and then set the exact date of the session and we will be in touch.

My neonatal offer for twins contains 4 packages and the opportunity to buy additional products (Canvas, prints, photo albums, etc.)

Package 4

in the price of 1600 PLN, includes:

– 12 photos on a DVD with two folders: one with high-resolution photos that are ready to be developed, the second with reduced photos, with my logo – these are used for e-mailing and publishing on the Internet. 

– A beautiful photo-album in 20×20 format made according to the original design and personalized for Your Little Ones

– A wonderful, high-quality Canvas on a 50×75 artist canvas made from a single shot chosen by You.

 

Due to the protection of copyrights on the Internet, You can only publish files with my logo. In addition, these photos will look great when publishing on the Internet but when You try to print, they will be illegible which provides additional protection against „Internet threats“.

If I have performed a pregnancy session for You, You will receive a 50 PLN discount for a neonatal session.

Each package can also include photos of siblings and parents at no extra charge, with the reservation that it is primarily a neonatal session e.g. not a family one. In the case of taking photos of siblings, we start from family shots and then please make the second parent/grandmother/grandfather/aunt etc. take the older child for a walk/play-balls, etc. and I will continue the neonatal session with the mother.

If it turns out that we have taken more photos, I will provide You with this information and if You decide, You will be able to buy additional shots. The cost of an additional shot is 50 PLN.

All printouts (albums, Canvas, prints, etc.) prepared for me are only performed by professional laboratories that work only with photographers to ensure the highest and inaccessible quality for everyone. This ensures a great reflection of colors and the best-selected materials.

With a good “cooperation” and sleep of the Little One, we will do about 1-2 stylizations with a packet of 8 photos, 2-3 stylizations with a packet of 12 photos and 3-5 stylizations with a package of 15 photos.

With each package, I always try to capture the details – tiny hands, feet, nose and lips.

The waiting time for finished photos is about eight-ten weeks – I try to get to You as, soon as possible. There is a possibility of giving a session in “Express Mode” – it costs additional 500 PLN – photos in a digital form (sent to an e-mail) then within 7 working days and printouts in the nearest possible time (usually about 2 weeks after receiving digital photos).

The selection of shots You receive is only on my side – as part of the possibility, I take a few shots from each shot to be able to choose the best one. I do not agree to any interference in the appearance of photos (retouching, filters, add-ons, self-machining, etc. or applying automatic filters from social networks and others).

I give the number of photos You have decided to buy, I do not give all the shots from the session, I do not give RAW files, I do not give pictures not graphically processed.

Both, You and I want to achieve the best possible results from the session, and we only achieve this when all “cravings” of the little model are met and the atmosphere at the session will be nice and calm. If it happens that the child will have an exceptionally bad day and fail to take the planned number of photos, the minimal cost of the session is 700 PLN, regardless of the number of finished photos.

Let’s respect each other – I am asking for punctuality. 

I do not consent to take photos with a phone or own camera.

We are settling in cash on the day of the session for the whole of my work. Possible additional or paid printouts are payable to the account before printing.

By deciding to take a session by me, You agree and accept my style of work and photos being taken, bearing in mind that each child is different, differently arranges and prefers various positions.

I invite You to benefit from my offer. If You have any questions or concerns, I am at Your disposal:

By phone: 605-50-50-30 (If I do not answer the phone, please send a text message – I do not talk on the phone during the session), 

On Facebook  

or by email: kontakt@sesjanoworodkowa.pl

Kind regards and I wish You all the best,
