Grace Creatives Maternity + Newborn

Investment Guide

'Hello' from Grace Creatives Photography

Congratulations on adding the newest little blessing to your family! Thank you so much for considering me as your maternity and newborn photographer! 

Using a ‘documentary approach,’ Grace Creatives leads parents with simple instructions to hold and/or place their newborns in natural poses + positions. This style leads to capturing each baby + their features while he/she is on his/her back, side, or tummy. These positions are either on a padded surface or in a Boppy. Grace Creatives prefers to not pose a child in positions where more safety risks are involved and a need for a trained assistant (ex: froggy style, inside wobbly crates/boxes, or propped up).

Additional information to consider:

  • Parents have the option to choose from either an in-home or relaxed studio setting for their session. If interested, in-home sessions allow for capturing the nursery as well.
  • Think about choosing outfits, props and special items that you wish to document. Grace Creatives provides neutral-toned blanket backdrops and swaddles.
  • The best time to document your newborn session is when your child is ~10 days old. 
  • If your baby has older siblings, it is often important to consider where these siblings will feel most comfortable.


I would love to document the sweetest new addition to your family! However, if this approach doesn’t line up with your style and/or needs, then let me know! 🙂

Milwaukee Newborn Photographer

Alison has always been so wonderful to work with. We have hired her for wedding, family and newborn shots, and most recently our son’s first birthday smash cake! She can turn any location into a photo studio. She was a pro with my wedding dress when we took photos in the mountains, making sure the wind was just right and my hair cooperated. And watching her interact with our son was great, she definitely got some good smiles. We love working with her and cannot recommend her enough!

Maternity Pictures in Boulder, Colorado
We had Alie with Grace Creatives take maternity pictures of my wife and I along with our energetic dog. She picked great outdoor locations, was thoroughly prepared and took amazing shots of our growing family. I especially liked her attention to detail including moving individual pieces of grass out of her shots. The pictures turned out great! Highly recommend Alie for any photography needs.

ONE: Inquiry
Review the information sent via this guide and let me know if you have any questions!

TWO: Booking
After you’ve decided to work with Grace Creatives, a signed contract and 20% retainer fee is requested to reserve your session.

THREE: Prep
Before your session, I will have you fill out a short questionnaire to prepare. Questions include listing family member names, must-have shots, and location details. In addition, i’ll send a few tips for you to review in order to help prepare. 

FOUR: Documenting and Gallery Delivery
No more than 2 weeks after your session, you will receive a digital gallery with all of the edited images from our session. With your digital downloads, you will have printing rights. However, there is an option to purchase prints directly through the gallery and/or share with friends and family so that they can purchase their own as well. 

COVID UPDATE

During COVID, I do not have a studio space available. I am able to document you and your little one in-home while wearing a mask the entire time and only after sanitizing my hands and cleaning my equipment. During the session, I’ll ask you to hold your newborn for several photos and various spaces. I will be able to coach you through positioning him/her for different shots and angles. If needed, I will adjust your newborn’s placement and/or outfits with sanitized hands. 🙂 In the case of rescheduling/cancellation due to a force majeure (this includes another safe at home order (even though I am not expecting this)), the full amount of the 20% retainer fee will be applied to a new photography session! No rescheduling fee will be charged. Additionally, no increase in pricing for the Grace Creatives services will be charged.
