William captured the essence of how my child is: happy, playful, curious, loving…ALL of that was captured in every single photo. As a mom, I will be forever grateful to treasure these memories in photos.
We had a wonderful experience with Felipe Sanchez at Petruzzo. He had great energy and kept our 9-month-old daughter entertained through the whole shoot.
The pictures turned out amazing – I felt that our home was transformed to something beautiful. William also took pictures of our nursery which turned out just magical.
We are so happy with the images from our family photo shoot. The photographer was wonderful and so patient with our children. We received a lovely range of photos and lots of fun candid shots.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where will the session take place?
Baby & Newborn Portrait Sessions always take place on-location. Depending on what style of images you like, we may shoot in your home, in a local park, a playground, or a downtown area.
How far will you travel?
Travel to locations within 35 miles of the 21054 zip code is included with your session. Travel beyond that will cost a little extra.
Will you photoshop the images?
Depending on the context of the image, we will remove some non-permanent blemishes and may slightly soften skin where it looks unnaturally rough. On portraits, we generally do not perform major cosmetic adjustments.
When should I schedule a newborn session?
You bet! All of our members who shoot baby & newborn portraits either have lots of kids in their lives, or have chidren of their own.
How long before the images are finished?
Standard turn around time for family portraits is 14 business days. Rush delivery is available at an additional cost.
How long do sessions usually last?
We keep shooting until we feel satisfied that we’ve captured what we are after. Sessions with babies & newborns can have unpredictable timing, though average around an hour.
What if my baby gets sick, there is bad weather, or an emergency?
We make every effort to accommodate changes in schedule, bearing in mind we can only reserve one date at a time per booking, so schedules will be based on current availability at the time of rescheduling.
Are you good with babies?
You bet! All of our members who shoot baby & newborn portraits either have lots of kids in their lives, or have children of their own.
Can my baby wear multiple outfits?
Certainly. However, it’s important to try and keep the baby calm. If changing clothes is likely to agitate him or her, it may not be worth it.
How should I dress my child for the session?
Well, pretty much anything you think looks good. The most important thing is that they are comfortable.
Are there any other fees I should expect?
Our packages are all inclusive, but do not include tax. If you wish to schedule a session outside of our normal service area you will be required to pay for travel. You may also be required to pay for prints, advanced retouching, parking and event or location admissions during the session.
What ages are considered babies?
As far as portrait sessions are concerned, babies are people under the age of 3 years old.
