Scheduling your session
In order to provide my clients with the very best service and attention to detail, I limit my sessions to 5-6 clients per month. As my demand has increased, I have been filling up with sessions 3 months or more in advance during busy seasons. To assure that I can get you on my calendar, please try to schedule your newborn session in the second trimester. Baby milestone sessions are limited to 2 per month and also need to be booked 3 months in advance.
Jennifer Hosking Photography is 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 and am available 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 2 months and often more in advance. I cannot stress enough how important it is to book your newborn session before your little one arrives as it is extremely rare for me to be able to squeeze in a last minute request.
I officially phased out of offering maternity sessions in early 2017, but am happy to pass along the name of some other great maternity photographers in our area!
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. Since we typically do not know when a newborn will arrive, I cannot guarantee a specific day for a newborn session. Newborn sessions typically start around 9:30AM 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 in my home. I do try to be prompt with emails, however I may be away from the office shooting a session or running an errand (such as mailing out orders). My evenings and (most) weekends are reserved for my family.
