Scheduling your session
In order to provide my clients with the very best service and attention to detail, I limit my sessions to 5-7 clients per month. As I have become more established, I have been filling up with sessions 30 days and up to 3 months in advance during busy seasons. To assure that I can get you on my calendar, please try to schedule your newborn session 60 days or more before your due date. To assure availability for a maternity session, please schedule before the end of the second trimester.
Jennifer Hosking Photography is now located in Downtown Mt Clemens, located inside the Vicant Building. It is my happy place and kept warm and snug for your little one. I shoot with studio lighting and have a large variety of props available for use and can cater your session to capture your little ones milestones.
Newborn sessions are easily my favorite and make my heart sing! They are also the most involved. I take my time with the session in order to capture a variety of images. They typically last 4-5 hours and are in a very controlled environment. Because newborn sessions are best when done before baby is 10 days old, I pencil in your baby’s due date on my calendar upon booking. This holds your spot for the month assures that I don’t overbook my schedule for the window when baby will arrive. A session date is then set after delivery.
If you are pregnant and looking for a newborn photographer, please contact me with your due date so I can accommodate you! I have been consistently filling with bookings at least a month and often more in advance. I cannot stress enough how important it is to book your newborn session before your little one arrives.
Maternity sessions are done as a part of my all inclusive Simple Session package and are typically done at 24-34 weeks gestation. They focus on the mother to be, but can include husband and children/siblings for a portion of the session. I provide wraps and maternity gowns, but love including your clothing as well! Since I am booking 1-3 months in advance with newborn sessions, I recommend booking your maternity session early in the second semester to ensure availability.
Baby Milestone Sessions
Baby sessions are so much fun! I love capturing babies as they grow. From learning to hold their head up while on their tummy, to taking those first steps. When scheduling your baby session, a happy, fed and awake baby is always best! Schedule sessions for your little one’s best awake times and bring snacks!
Sessions take place either on weekdays (while my own children are in school), or during the day on select weekends. Newborn sessions typically start around 9AM to allow plenty of time in case your little one is in need of extra time to fall into sleep or needs extra feedings or snuggles. I do not shoot sessions during the evening hours or on most holidays. Similarly, my office hours are also during the day while my own children are in school. While I shoot at my studio, my office where I edit images and answer emails is at my home. While I do try to be prompt with emails, I may be away from the office shooting a session or running an errand such as mailing out orders. My evenings and weekends are reserved for my family.
