It’s your turn to celebrate the beauty of motherhood with a maternity or newborn mini session!!
I’ve taken care of all the planning – all you have to do is show up! This will be a beautiful, stress-free morning of gorgeous mini sessions centered on you and your baby bump – or you and your newborn!
The Location: The Glass House in Conroe, TX
The Glass House is one of my most favorite locations! It’s beautiful, peaceful, completely private and unique. In fact, this was the second most-requested location of my clients for 2021 for exactly those reasons.
This clear glass “greenhouse” features floor-to-ceiling windows on all four sides, along with a clear glass ceiling and a white marble floor. Natural light streams in all around you, creating the softest, most romantic and timeless photos ever!
This lovely little house is set back in the trees, providing plenty of shade year round. We’ll have the option to photograph inside The Glass House and outside in the lovely shaded areas. No one else will have access to the property during these mini sessions, meaning your photo sessions are intimate and totally private!
Save the date: January 30, 2022 | Times vary
I’ve already reserved The Glass House for a relaxed morning of incredible mini sessions! Block off your calendar for January 30, 2022 – and snag your preferred time slot:
10 am, 10:25 am, 10: 50 am, 11:15 am, 11:40 am, 12 pm
Sessions are offered on a first-come, first-served basis; each session is 20 minutes long.
The Glass House is fully enclosed, which means we can photograph your mini session rain or shine! The clear glass walls guarantee amazing natural light no matter what the weather is like; hands down, these will be the most amazing photos you’ll ever have taken!
Maternity mini session details
The Glass House Maternity Minis are open to mamas through 36 weeks pregnant. To maximize our time, no more than one child, please.
Here’s what you can expect during your maternity mini session:
- photos of you with your husband/fiancé/boyfriend
- photos of just you, showing off your baby bump!
- a variety of soft backgrounds
- the option to photograph both inside The Glass House and outside in the beautiful shady areas
- expert guidance for completely natural posing!
You might be wondering if 20 minutes is enough time for amazing photos – and I can assure you that it is!
For reference, a typical one-hour maternity session with me includes about 45 minutes total shooting time once you consider clients changing into a second outfit and walking from place to place for a variety of backgrounds. The photo gallery for a one-hour maternity session usually includes around 60 images.
For this mini session, you’ll arrive in an outfit you love, so we won’t have to take time for you to change. There are so many ways to capture incredible moments inside The Glass House, and the session won’t involve lots of walking. This means we’ll have 20 solid minutes to focus on beautiful photos!
After your session, I’ll send a link to a private, password-protected photo gallery. You’ll get to view all of your images and select the photos you love the most. Your photo gallery will feature 20-30 gorgeous photos of you celebrating pregnancy! The best part – you only purchase the photos you want!
Why I adore maternity mini photo sessions:
If this is your first baby, you might have noticed how all of the attention is on you and your bump.
A maternity session is the perfect opportunity to shift the focus to where your family begins – with you and your spouse! I’ll walk you through completely natural posing that highlights how much you love each other… and how you’re so excited to begin this new adventure together.
If you’re on the fence about scheduling a maternity session but know you definitely want newborn photos, this mini session is the best of both worlds. The time and financial investment in a mini session is less than that of two full sessions; plus, if you love the maternity mini experience with me, you’ll have the option to book a full newborn session, knowing exactly how I work and what the photos are like!
Newborn mini session details
Newborn minis are open to first-time parents with a baby who is 12 weeks old or younger. To make the most of our time, these minis are limited to couples with just one child.
The key to beautiful portraits is a flattering wardrobe and a stunning location.
I’ll walk you through *everything* you need to know for what to wear – and this amazing location is already reserved just for you!
Here’s what you can expect during your newborn mini session:
- photos of you, your hubby and newborn all together
- each parent individually with baby
- photos that focus on baby’s tiny face, hands and feet while he or she is snuggled with you
- expert guidance for completely natural photos of you and your family cuddled together!
- seated and standing photos, along with a variety of soft backgrounds
When you arrive at The Glass House, we’ll kick things off with family photos. I’ll provide gentle posing guidance for mostly candid moments, although we’ll include a few of the traditional “look at me and smile!” photos that new grandparents love!
After family photos, I’ll invite you to sit and snuggle with your newborn as your hubby watches nearby. I’ll walk you through sweet, authentic ways to engage with your newborn for soft, flattering portraits. You’ll also hold your newborn while standing next a window for some of my most favorite (and most requested!) images.
Once I’ve wrapped up precious mommy & me moments, you’ll hand baby off to your husband for daddy-baby photos. He’ll sit and stand with baby as well as I guide him through simple, unforgettable moments with your tiny love!
The session will fly by and you’ll leave knowing you’ve made some of the best memories ever!
Why I love newborn mini photo sessions:
A mini session is a quick, simple way to make the sweetest memories of you and your newly expanded family. I’ll capture the moments every new mama loves, and you only purchase the images you want to treasure for a lifetime.
Trust me – you’re going to fall in love with how peaceful and beautiful The Glass House is!
Even better, you don’t have to worry about preparing your home for this photo session. All you have to do is show up with your precious newborn and I’ll take care of the rest.
This is a great option for families who are in a rental home while house hunting or building a home. Sometimes, it’s not worth the time to set up a temporary nursery in a place you don’t plan to live in for long.
Or, maybe you recently moved into a new place and it’s not quite photo ready! With a newborn to care for, you’re not exactly focused on unpacking boxes and decorating. This mini session takes all the stress out of preparing for gorgeous photos!
The Celebrate Motherhood magazine: the prep guide you can’t live without!
Here’s what I don’t do for my clients:
- I don’t leave you on your own to figure out what to wear
- I don’t just send a link to a few Pinterest boards with wardrobe ideas that you’ll never look at
- I don’t tell you just to “wear something you love” and hope for the best
- I don’t just book the session and not talk to you again before the day of your photos
I consider all of that to be really unprofessional.
After all, you want these photos to be beautiful memories of such an exciting time in your life! Your photographer should happily and expertly guide you through the process of preparing for your photo sessions.
There’s really no excuse for a photographer to just show up to take your photos, without communicating with you ahead of time so that you feel confident and comfortable before the session.
That’s why I’ve made client education a huge part of us working together!
All of my clients receive my Celebrate Motherhood magazine, a 72-page guide that walks you through what to wear for your whole family, how to do your hair & makeup (along with contact info for my fave hair & makeup team!), what to expect before/during/after the session, posing guidance so you know how I’ll work with you… and LOTS more!
I even include a list of colors that photograph best for soft, romantic images, along with suggestions for particular fabrics that photograph beautifully.
The magazine will take all of the stress and worry out of getting ready for your mini session!
I also have a curated series of emails and short videos that will answer common newborn photo FAQs and explain in even more detail what wardrobe options are best for mamas, dads and newborns!
