The newborn session are captured within the comfort of your own home in a nursery, bedroom or living room. Maternity and lifestyle portraits sessions are shot on-location at outdoor venues throughout Hampton Roads, Virginia. Based on your style preferences, we will suggest an outdoor venue in close proximity to you. Common venues includes Fort Monroe in Hampton, VA; Noland Trails in Newport News, VA; or the Beach Front in Yorktown, VA. Spangled Photography has many location options throughout Hampton Roads but if you are interested in traveling outside the Hampton Roads region ask us about our travel options.
Most maternity and lifestyle portrait sessions occur evenings and weekends one hour before sunset. Although sunset times change throughout the year, the average session occurs at 6 PM. This time frame helps us capture a beautiful creamy light that you are sure to love. Because newborn sessions are shot inside your home where the lighting conditions are controlled, there is greater flexibility allowing for sessions to be scheduled any time of day.
We are constantly checking the forecast for our sessions and keeping a close eye on any impeding weather. One day before your session we will provide you with a full update on the forecast and venue specific circumstances. Depending on the severity of the weather conditions, we may provide you with the option to reschedule your portrait session. Because we value your time, we like to give you the option to keep the appointment or reschedule. Should you choose to keep the appointment and it rains during the session, the photographer will cancel the session and work with you to reschedule a full session at no extra charge.
