I was looking at my old blog just to see if I had grown any in my writing and I happened to find this blog post of a questionnaire that I had posted back in February of 2017. It just so happens that this little baby will be 3 this Summer AND she will be a big sister in October! I only have one other clients session questionnaire (and I need to start doing these again) posted on my new blog so I thought I would post this one even though it is old.
I was ecstatic when I was asked to photograph the birth of a baby! Especially this baby because I had taken this Moms maternity pictures and had gotten to know the couple. Unfortunately Mom had to have an emergency C-Section so I wasn’t able to photograph it. I was able to photograph Mom and baby when they came out of surgery and was able to capture the newest moments with baby and the family. And more importantly Mom, Dad, and Baby bonding time.
Just a sweet little note to add, we continued to stay in touch after baby was born and nearly 3 years later we are best friends. All it took was her to book a maternity session with me for us to find each other. =)
What was your after birth photography session like?
Wonderful! Kirsten was very professional and was amazing! She somehow managed to get beautiful pictures while remaining “out of the way” so my family could meet my daughter. It is so great to have pictures of me with my daughter and family that I can cherish and look back on years from now.
Did you have any fears about me being in the room?
Absolutely none! You worked so smoothly “behind the scenes” that until my family left and it was just you in the room, there were times I honestly forgot you were there, which gave you the opportunity to get wonderful and genuine reactions.
How do you feel about your photos?
They are beautiful and stunning. These are memories that captured a very special moment in my life that I and my daughter can forever cherish.
How was your overall photo session experience?
Even though this was my first time getting a session like this, it was a lovely experience and I can’t wait to do it again.
If you were to have another baby would you want it documented also?
Yes! The moments during the birth and after are moments you cannot get back. I had such a wonderful experience getting this session and capturing these beautiful moments in my life. I will definitely be doing this again for my next child.
