Where we are Located
We are located in Seymour Wisconsin, which is conveniently located between Green Bay and Appleton.
What to Expect
We have a full portable studio lighting set available for those cloudy Wisconsin days! On days that are sunny, your session may be shot using available natural light in your home, outside, or in a location of your choice.
Scheduling the Session
Please schedule your session at a time that is best for your baby or child. A sitting typically lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Please take into consideration your child's feeding and nap time before deciding on the session time. Please do not take it personally if as the parent you are asked to step out of the room during the session. It is amazing how well the child performs when mommy isn't watching! Because of distractions, it is recommended that only those who are to be photographed be present during your child's session. Please have extra clothing on hand for your child in case of an accident.
When is the best time to photograph a newborn?
The best time to photograph your new baby is 5-10 days old. That is why the portable studio, which comes to your home, is so ideal in this situation. Even if you decide to come to our studio, it is much better for your newborn than being out an about among the rest of the world at such a delicate age! The pictures at this timeframe of 1-2 weeks are sure to make the most precious memories!
Clothing to Wear
Simple clothing works best for all types of portraits. Please try to stay away from busy patterns, logos, or clothing that your child may feel uncomfortable in. Solid colors are recommended, although fun colors and patterns can add wonderful personality. Comfort is the most important factor with children, especially infants and toddlers. Our recommendation for family portraits is black tops (or all white tops) and jean bottoms. This creates a clean, elegant look that can be both contemporary and classic.
Before any sessions begin, two forms must be completed by the parent/guardian. 1) The model release allows for the use of the photos in advertising, portfolio work, etc. 2) The portrait agreement states all of the policies enforced by Simply To Inspire Photography. Please take a moment and read these carefully prior to signing them.
Your portraits will be available to proof online within 2 weeks of your session and will only be available for viewing and ordering for 10 business days. Your proofs will be password protected for privacy of the clients. If you are unable to view proofs online, an appointment will be scheduled and to view the proofs on a CD at the studio.
Your prints are guaranteed to be available for pickup within 3 weeks of your order date and payment. We will call you when your prints are ready, and you will be able to come and pick them up at the studio or have them shipped to your home address. If your order was placed from a Portrait Party session, your hostess will receive the prints and be responsible for delivering them.
