learn about the process

Casey McMinn Photography is a full-service studio from start to finish, providing premium high-touch service from initial inquiry to prints in hand. You’ll receive fine art prints and heirloom products meant to be cherished and passed down for generations to come. If you’re looking for a high-end, signature experience for you and your family, you're in the right place!

I do things a little differently than most maternity and newborn photographers 

why choose me?

the details

After your initial inquiry, I'll invite you to do an phone or in person consultation and studio tour so we can make sure my services and style will be the right fit for you and your family. 

The consultation is when we will discuss the process of the photo shoot from start to finish, so you'll know exactly what to expect when the big day comes. I truly believe that it is so important for my clients to meet me beforehand, whether it be over the phone or in person, so you'll feel comfortable with me for the day of your session.

As a mom of three, I know how important the comfort factor with adults is for your little ones!

initial meeting

Your session fee is due upon booking. For newborn sessions I will put your due date on my calendar. Once baby is born, you'll get in touch with me and at that point we will schedule a time within 5 - 15 days after baby's birth for you to come in to do your newborn session. 

ready to book

Since this is a full service experience, outfits are provided for your entire family. I will discuss colors and outfit selections with you during the consultation. There is a beautiful selection of clothing pieces for mom, dad, kids and baby, all solid color pieces in neutral tones, allowing for a timeless, classic feel. 



prepping for your sESSION

The big day is finally here! Try to relax and not stress about anything...I've got you covered! A relaxed mom and dad create a carefree environment, necessary for the best portraits possible.
When you arrive at the studio please notify me so I can meet you outside to help assist you and your family to get inside and bring anything in that you may have. 

your session day

The viewing and ordering appointment will be scheduled approximately one to two weeks after your portrait session. You'll love this experience! This day is known as, "Reveal Day"! This is where we will view your gallery on the reveal wall and order luxurious products and prints to decorate your home with.

WHAT KIND OF PRINTED PRODUCTS DO YOU OFFER?

Mat folio prints, board back prints, canvases, albums and canvas wall collages. Our most popular products are canvas wall collages, albums and mat folio prints.
 

WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PICTURES AND ORDER PRINTS / PRODUCTS?

The ordering appointment will be scheduled a few days after your session where you will view your gallery and purchase prints / products.


WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GET NEWBORN PORTRAITS TAKEN?

Newborn sessions are done within 5 - 14 days after baby's birth. I put your due date on my calendar and once baby is born you'll notify me. At that point we will schedule a day for you to come to the studio for your newborn session.

DO YOU HAVE A SPACE IN YOUR STUDIO FOR ME TO CHANGE BABY'S DIAPER, FEED THEM, ETC?

Yes, there is a changing table with diapers, wipes and diaper cream for changing baby. There is a couch and chairs for feeding baby and a bottle warmer as well.

WHAT ARE SOME TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL NEWBORN SESSION?

Just make sure you feed baby right before the session so they're good and full. If baby likes a pacifier bring a couple of those as well. Make sure to bring any formula or breast milk in case we need to feed baby during the shoot. Other than that you don't need to worry about anything else...I will take care of the rest. During the shoot I use a small heater and sound machine to create a warm, cozy environment for baby. If your baby likes pacifiers, I keep extras at the studio in case you forget yours.  


WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

If you need to reschedule, do not worry...I totally understand life gets in the way sometimes. If you need to reschedule, please send me an email and we will reschedule your session, no problem. 

WHAT IF I HAVE SCHEDULED AN OUTDOOR SESSION AND IT RAINS?

Leading up to the day of your outdoor session I will be checking the weather. If the forecast is not looking promising, I will make the final assessment on the morning of your session date. If we decide to reschedule we will come up with a reschedule date to get your family in asap.

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SESSION?

For a newborn shoot I recommend morning time. For an outdoor session where we will use natural light, I recommend early in the morning, or, later in the evening. This is the best time to catch that beautiful outdoor light.

ARE ALL SESSIONS DONE IN THE STUDIO?

Newborn sessions are done in studio. Maternity and family sessions can be done in studio, or, on location outdoors.

DO YOU USE STUDIO LIGHTING OR NATURAL LIGHT?

Sessions done in the studio use my studio lighting setup. Sessions done outdoors use natural light.
