If you feel that Studio Lumiere may be the right fit to document your family's special moments, please reach out through the contact form! Kristyn will send you more information and would love to either chat through email or schedule a time to chat over the phone. She takes on a limited number of sessions per month and suggests booking in advance to make sure you reserve a space in the timeframe you are hoping for. Newborn session dates are not chosen in advance, rather Kristyn reserves tentative spots for families and then you reach out to her once baby arrives to schedule your session. To reserve your session, she requires the session fee up front as well as a signed contract.
Once you're all booked in, I will send you my client guide with an abundance of helpful information to help you feel prepared. These are mainly tips on how to prepare on the morning of your newborn session, what to bring to different types of sessions, and studio guidelines. All clients have access to my curated client closet with over 30 dresses for moms and outfits for dads and children up to 5 years old. This is one of my favorite aspects of Studio Lumiere - it saves families time and money on outfits that you may not even wear again. I also am happy to help you with booking professional makeup and hair services with one of the talented companies I trust.
Every effort is taken to make sure the studio is a safe place for families. Kristyn wears a mask for every session, sanitizes often, and reserves 1 hour between sessions to ensure there is adequate time for cleaning. There is no problem if families need to postpone due to sickness or symptoms of COVID-19, and Kristyn will do the same. Screening questionnaires are sent out the day before your session. Families also have the option of having a hands off session (where parents pose and dress baby). Once you arrive to Kristyn's home studio, you'll be led upstairs where the studio and studio washroom are. There will be enough time to change, enjoy a beverage, and get comfortable before the camera comes out. Kristyn's warm and outgoing personality helps everyone to feel welcome and comfortable, and she loves connecting with her clients!
You'll receive a link with your proofing gallery approximately 1-2 weeks after your session. This gallery will have approximately 50-60 images from your session for you to choose from. There are options for digital packages, and prints and albums are available. The images you choose to purchase will be fully edited and retouched, and you'll receive both color and black and white versions. Kristyn is able to accommodate editing requests and strives to deliver images that her clients love and feel proud to print and display in their homes! Your final images are edited within 2 weeks and delivered to you through a downloadable online gallery. After this, she will hope to hear from you down the road to book your next session!

We had such a lovely experience working with Kristyn! She was so organized, very professional and most importantly, her photographs are absolutely beautiful! She scoped out the best spots for gorgeous lighting on a summer evening and was incredibly patient and sweet while capturing the most precious moments with our newborn twins. The photos are timeless and classic and we are so thankful to Kristyn for doing such a wonderful job!
