The Studio Experience
I have a few very, very specific priorities in the studio.
The first, is that you and your family are completely comfortable. To that end, I have snacks, water, and other goodies here in the studio, available to you and your family while you’re here. (Nothing with nuts, though, because we’re allergy conscious here! If you have a child with an allergy that needs to be taken into account, please just let me know ahead of your session.) Your comfort is also one of the reasons that I’m fully vaccinated, and have implemented enhanced sanitation measures in between sessions (more on that below!).
My second priority, is ensuring that we end the session with images worth hanging on your walls. I want you to hold your memories in your hands, and see them every day in your home. Not tuck them away in a gallery on your phone. So that’s my goal!
Let’s break things down –
Although every session in my studio is different, there are a few things you can expect when you’re working with Restless Photography!
- Before you book your session, we’ll set up a design consultation, to make sure that we have a plan in place for your time in the studio! It’s very important to me that every client gets exactly what they’re looking for out of their session, and spending time planning ahead allows us to do that. Little ones are totally welcome to accompany you, by the way.
- Then once you’ve booked, we’ll have your session! That’s when we’ll capture all of your images here in the studio (or on location, for outdoor sessions). If we’re in the studio, I always have snacks and refreshments available as well, so don’t worry about packing extra for your kiddos, if they’re involved in the session!
- Following your session, I’ll select the best of the best to show you at your viewing and ordering appointment, which is next…
- Then we have your ordering appointment! Honestly, this is almost always just as fun as the session itself. You get to see the magic we created together! And, you get to choose what’s going to go on the walls of your home.
- Product pick up will be available 6 weeks following your ordering appointment. This is because many of the items we’ll be ordering for you are handcrafted, which takes time!
The investment for working with me here at Restless Photography is broken into two parts - the first, is the session fee.
Session fees begin at $300 for Newborn & Family Sessions, and $500 for Cake Smash Sessions, and cover the time spent in the studio as well as access to the client wardrobe! The second part of your investment, is for the suite of print products that you choose following your session. Products begin at $190, and collections begin at $990.
Photos are meant to be SEEN –
We live in a technological world at this point, there’s no denying it. But that doesn’t mean that the images from your session should be destined to live only on your smart phone. Wallpapers are nice and all, but… your memories belong on your real walls too.
That’s why I offer an extensive suite of tangible photo collections. Whether you’d prefer an album, a set of folio prints, or a gorgeous canvas to cover a wall, you will have innumerable options for displaying your memories in your home, for everyone to see.
I value your SAFETY –
As much as I know we’d all love the pandemic to be over, I’m not taking any chances with my clients’ health. That’s why all props/fabrics used in the studio are sanitized and the studio is deep cleaned between every single client.
Sessions are being booked on an every-48-hour schedule both to accommodate deep cleaning, and ensure any vapor can leave the air between families. I am also, of course, washing my hands regularly both in the studio, and out of it. If you’d like, I can also wear a mask during your session! Just request it when you book, and I’ll mask up.
If anyone has come in contact with someone that tested positive or has any symptoms I ask that they reschedule any meetings/sessions until they’ve received a negative test.
My family has used Restless Photography for many photos shoots over the years and we have always loved each and every session. However, our maternity photos and newborn session this year were more than I could have ever hoped for. Our maternity session was magical. Kim had a huge selection of gowns in her client closet! As a plus size girl pre pregnancy, I was concerned about whether they would fit me. To my surprise, many dresses fit my plus size and pregnant with twins body! Our photos were amazing and I’ll cherish them forever. Our more recent newborn session was equally as amazing. Our twins were born early and needed time in the NICU. I was concerned about not being able to get them there during the optimal photo window (under two weeks old). Our girls were photographed at 3 weeks old and Kim was wonderful with them. She was patient while we got them sleepy for photos. Trusting Kim to handle our newborns was easy. She soothed them, cuddled them, and positioned them perfectly for photos. I would not hesitate to recommend Kim at Restless Photography for your Maternity and Newborn photos!
Kimberly is amazing to work with. She truly loves what she does and has an amazing amount of patience and kindness. She's a newborn whisperer and works with your child, not against them, to get amazing photos that become beautiful works of art on your wall.
Kim is one of the most amazing photographers I have worked with. From my maternity session in 2019, newborn session in 2020, Boudoir session in 2020, my youngest daughter's 1st birthday smash cake session, and soon our family session, she has made each one feel special. The environment is at ease. She portrays a very safe and loving atmosphere. Her work is impeccable. I will always choose her for photographs.
I am absolutely in LOVE with the photos Kim did! Between my maternity photos, newborn photos to my son's cake smash coming up, the milestones I get to treasure forever are so beautifully done. Highly recommend!
