back to school petite sessions.

Ok, so I am not ready… you probably are not ready, but it’s coming, and it’s not that far off.

I feel kind of bad posting these sessions because I was actually ANGRY when I saw the back to school display at Target the other day.

However, I have waited long enough and the truth is I am SUPER excited about these sessions.  So, let’s get you scheduled and then you can ignore the back to school reality for another month!

CLICK HERE when you are ready to reserve your session date and time.

 

Let me answer some of your questions here:

  • Q:  Where will this event be?
  • A:  At my in-home studio in northwest Evanston.  Address and directions will be sent when you book your session.
  • Q:  What should I expect from my session?
  • A:  Session will last 10 minutes.  There will be a back-to-school set (“chalkboard”, desk, globe, books, etc) as well as a wood backdrop.  The back-to-school set will be ideal for school-aged children and the wood backdrop can be for sibling shots, as well as the little ones!  You will get a gallery of at least 5-6 awesome images of your kiddo(s) to choose from.

 

  • Q: Can I combine my session with my friend, cousin, sister, or neighbor?
  • A:  Nope, these sessions are for your own kids only.  These are not family sessions.  However, if you would like to book a family session, I would love to work with you and am happy to arrange that with you!

 

  • Q:  How much does this session cost?   
  • A:  If you have never had a free petite session with me before, this session is FREE.  If you have already enjoyed a free petite session and just can’t resist signing up for another one, this session is just $75.  AND, there is 1 digital high-resolution image included with your session.

 

  • Q:  Is there a way to get more images?
  • A:  Absolutely!  If you share this post on your Facebook wall (and let me know that you shared it), you will get an additional jpeg included with your package.  You will also have the option to purchase additional images after your session.

newborn studio sessions.

Calling all parents-to-be… have you thought about choosing jessie hearn photography for your studio newborn session?  My all new Evanston studio is full equipped and ready to provide you with an incredible experience for you and your babies newborn images.  

I know, I know… having a baby is overwhelming enough, without having to also think about leaving your house with your baby and all of his/her stuff in tow for a photography session.

Well, let me answer a few questions to help put your mind at ease.

QuestionWe haven’t slept; my toddler just ate 3 day old crackers out of the cushions in the couch; I hate my entire wardrobe; and my dog just peed all over the rug.  Is this really something that I need to think about right now??                                                                                                                                                                    

AnswerOf course not.  But, if you’re anything like me, years (or more likely months/weeks) from now, you will wish that you had.  For better or worse, the newborn-stage flies by in a blur and in the blink of an eye.  Those perfect wrinkly babies will uncurl their legs in a matter of weeks.  And before you know it, they are arguing with you about homework, clothing, dinner, and everything else they can possibly argue with you about.  (I should really stop inserting my personal experience into this question and answer). My goal is to make this easy on you so that you will have perfect memories of the first time your baby captured your heart.

(More questions and answers below… keep scrolling).

Question:
How much preparation will I  have to do for this session?  Do I have to bring everything but the kitchen sink with me?

                                                                                                                                                                                          
Answer: No, this session will be very little work for you, at all.  I will send you detailed instructions, with a few tips to help you best prepare for the session.  One of my tips is to bring a book, magazine, or something to help you relax because once you are here at your session, my goal is for you to rest and ENJOY!   I have all of the blankets, swaddles, headbands, baskets, etc.  Of course, I always welcome personal items from home (special blankets, loveys, a favorite outfit, etc) so that we can make this session personal to you, but you are not required to bring anything.  My studio is equipped with diapers, wipes, pacifiers, snacks, lollipops for the big siblings, coffee, and pretty much anything else you could need while you are here!

Question:   How do we know what to wear?  What to do to get ready?  Etc.

Answer:  Not to worry… prior to our session, you will complete a simple form which will help me to customize the session to fit YOU.  I will provide you with a what to wear guide, as well as details instructions for what to do prior to my arrival (for example: when to feed the baby, etc).   Nothing too complicated, I promise.

(And don’t forget to scroll down for more…)

Question: How do I decide between a full session and a newborn session?

Answer:  A full session has no time restraints… we will stop as often as we need to feed baby, change into different colors, sets, etc.  A full session includes both individual baby shots, as well as parent images, sibling images, and family images.  A mini session is one hour in length and is for baby only (no family or sibling images). The typical mini session includes 2-3 different sets.

 

Last question (but you can always contact me to ask me any other questions!)

Question:  Where can I see your pricing?

Answer:  That’s easy.  Just click here!  Parents really love the “baby’s first year mini-sessions” which are only offered exclusively for clients who use jessie hearn photography for their newborn session.    For a limited time, all studio sessions are 15% off!  It’s easy… just click here to contact me or to book your session!

Question:  And when do I schedule my session?

Answer:  You can schedule your session at any point during your pregnancy.  I use your due date to hold a spot for you and once your baby arrives, you will be guaranteed a session within the first 2 weeks of his/her life.

huge summer celebration.

Alright, here is the deal… It is May, and it is still freezing outside.  As I sat shivering outside through 2 soccer games today, I couldn’t help but wish for those warm summer days.  The beach, the hot sun, brightly colored beach balls, sand castles, sunglasses…. all of it.
So, I am going to start planning for the summer because you know that whole “if you build it, they will come” thing?  Well, it’s worth a shot.

Remember that big announcement I talked about last week?  It has to do with summer, and the huge summer celebration I am planning for you! Please continue reading for ALL of the details!  Or just CLICK HERE if you are ready to book your session!
