… 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 am happy to make a unique session in white for You. Such a session is a wonderful souvenir for Your whole life for You and 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 Your baby.

I take such pictures from the 3rd week of my child’s life. These are mainly based on the emotions the child gives us, family photos showing the bond that links You, all in white. Thirsty, warm and very natural.

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 You with the set design, unique atmosphere, my skills and my time. You have to prepare Yourself for the session in Your own clothes: all white, without printing or applications. Same for the Little One – definitely the best is the white body (the requirement for each session, not the shirt!), Nice white shorts, rompers, dresses, etc. Mom, please make Your hair and have a make-up in which You feel good. Dad, if You shave, be shaved. I usually wrap the smallest children in a skirt – the Little One looks charming, it is so tiny and delicate.

I pre-set a session for 1-2 weeks in advance.

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

I take photos from Monday to Friday. I do not take advances when signing up for a session. I do not commute to customers (even at extra cost).

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

All accessories that I have 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 crap 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 rewinding, for hugging. I do not put the child in positions that raise his opposition. This child 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 baby items – not every child wants, e.g. to lie on his tummy or on his back, not everyone smiles, etc.

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 the baby, I understand his needs and humor, I know how to follow the safety and hygiene rules. All blankets and bedding which I use for sessions are washed each time in hypoallergenic powder for babies and the accessories are washed so as to maintain the necessary hygiene and safety rules.

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

Package 4

in the price of 1600 PLN, includes:

– 15 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 each child

– 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 also includes photos of siblings and parents at no extra charge. Only the whole family must be stylistically prepared for the session.

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. The selection of more photos above the largest package is usually associated with the need to pay extra to the album if You want all the photos to be placed in it.

I do not do retouch in the type of “beauty”, e.g. I do not shave dads, I do not dye roots, do not put make-up, I do not shape the body, etc. This session is to show You how You are – full of emotions, mutual love and respect.

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.

The waiting time for finished photos is about eight-ten weeks – I try to get to You as, 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,
