the session experience
Curious about what to expect during a session with me? You're in the right spot!
Read on to learn about the one of a kind session experience offered by
Samantha Wilson Photography.
Get ready to hang with your favorite people blissfully free from the distractions of everyday life. Uninterrupted quality time to laugh, play and snuggle while I artfully capture posed and candid portraits that tell your unique family story. You'll receive a gallery full of images that will bring a smile to your face when you pass them hanging in your home; photographs that you will look back on and treasure for years to come.
I provide all of my clients with an exclusive styling guide to make planning your session wardrobe a breeze! I scout beautiful outdoor locations for seasonal flora and foliage that will be the perfect background to allow you and your family to shine. My studio in the heart of Doylestown, PA is fully equipped to host your family with neutral backgrounds that lend to classic portraits that will never go out of style.
All posed newborn sessions take place in the comfort of my Doylestown, PA studio when baby is between 2-4 weeks old. The studio is fully outfitted with everything needed to capture sweet, sleepy newborn goodness, along with family and sibling portraits. I encourage new parents to relax on the cozy couch and enjoy a snack, coffee, and even a little snooze! I will expertly style your session from my extensive collection of handmade boutique quality props; specifically created for newborn photography.
Newborn sessions are typically arranged about halfway through pregnancy. I accept just five due dates per month to ensure that I am available and attentive for early and late arrivals! You'll give me a call, or send a text or email when the baby is born so that we can finalize a date for our session together.
Classic Newborn Sessions typically last about 3 hours, while Petite Newborn Sessions are approximately 90 minutes. There is plenty of time for breaks to feed the baby, clean up inevitable messes, and allow your new baby the time and space to relax into a deep sleep. If family poses are a part of your session, they will be done during the first 30-45 minutes of your session so that older siblings can continue their day normally.
Growing a baby and growing your family is always worth documenting. Whether it's your first, or fourth pregnancy, the incredible journey of welcoming a new individual to your family is full of love and anticipation. We'll meet on location or in my studio to take fun and emotional portraits of how your body changed in incredible ways to completely change the world of everyone who loves you and your baby. An extensive collection of maternity gowns is available exclusively to my clients.
If parenting has taught me anything, it's that everything is a phase. Whatever phase of parenting you're in, it's the right time to capture your child's unique personality and expressions. From when your little one first sits up to their first birthday... from that gapped tooth smile or newly installed braces... all the way to graduation when they are looking more like an adult than the child you swear you were just snuggling in your lap. I look forward to seeing your child grow and making it possible for you to look back on each phase with equal parts bitter and sweet.
Fresh 48 sessions are in hospital lifestyle sessions that aim to capture the sweet rawness of a brand new life joining your family. Those ultra-fresh baby details, emotional sibling meetings, or how perfectly your baby fits into your curves; I capture it all while you stay present in these moments. You can relax while I preserve these memories for you to enjoy time and time again. Fresh 48 sessions are typically reserved in the second trimester of pregnancy. I limit my availability to two fresh 48 sessions per month.
