The Session Experience

I know that this experience is important to you or you wouldn’t be here. I know you’re taking time out of your busy schedule to capture your pregnancy, baby and family in the most meaningful way. I try to make each step of this experience an easy, simple and joyful one from start to finish. All of my photography packages include a set number of digital files with no pressure to purchase anything further.

First, Let’s Connect

Let’s get to know each other and plan for a great session! The more I get to know you the better our session will be. After you reach out to me through my contact form, we’ll chat via email or phone to discuss your wants/needs/fears for the session and I’ll answer any questions you might have. If you’re not sure which session is right for you, we’ll narrow it down to the best one that fits your needs.

Once you’ve picked your session, I’ll send you the link to my online booking system where you can review/sign the portrait agreement and pay the deposit to hold your date/time.

The Session

When you arrive to the session we’ll go over when the last time your baby was fed/changed to make sure we have a happy baby to work with. I’ll help you pick out the props and colors that will work best with your outfits and home decor. We’ll laugh, have fun and we might even get into some heavy conversations about labor and delivery (there’s a lot of time to kill during those newborn sessions).

Proofing Gallery/Final Delivery

Within 1 week of your session, you’ll receive what’s called a proofing gallery. This gallery will consist of roughly 50-60 images from your session that I believe are the best images. These images will be adjusted for exposure/white balance, but will not be retouched.

From this gallery you’ll select your favorite images for me to edit. The amount is determined by the session package, but you have the option to purchase more if you wish.

Once you’ve selected your favorites, I’ll edit them and send you the final retouched images ready for download with a printing rights release.

Alicea is the best! I was really worried about finding a photographer that could capture my baby's first year in the way I wanted but also bring their own creativity to the mix. I had a bad experience with our wedding photographer and was really looking for someone who we could turn to time and again over the years to photograph our growing family. In short, we wanted someone we could build a relationship with. We found that with Alicea. She is so easy to work with and is really flexible with her schedule. And her prices are more than reasonable. We did the 5 session baby's first year plan. We did maternity pics, newborn, 3 month, 6 month and 1 year. Alicea wowed us from the maternity session and didn't stop there. She had all these great props to enhance our newborn daughters photos but stillNot take away from her at all. My whole family joined us for the 3 month pics and we captured some wonderful family photos with my daughter. Our 1 year photos were amazing with balloons and a cake smash in a beautiful outdoor park. And to top it all of with the baby plan you get an album full of pictures from each session to celebrate your baby's first year! I am so happy we found Alicea and can't wait to have her photograph my family's precious moments over the years. If you choose to work with her, you will not be disappointed.

Alicea takes amazing pictures. We were first introduced to her through friends who gave us a photo session as a gift. We took maternity photos with Alicea, and we were highly impressed. We have done milestone photos with our two sons, and we continue to enjoy her photos. Her photos are proudly displayed throughout our house. She is very talented, and she has captured some of the most precious moments. We will treasure her photos forever. We would highly recommend her work. If you are looking for a photographer who will capture memories for a lifetime, Alicea would be the person to contact.

We found Alicea through a Google search and up front were impressed with her point of view and professional/timely communication with us. We are so glad we trusted our instincts and chose her from the photographers we screened for our son's 5-year photos. Alicea's down-to-earth personality, strong talent and incredible patience ensured the best photography session we've ever experienced. She's given us images that are truly priceless -- the expressions and personality we see from our son each day, yet almost take for granted. To have these frozen in time to treasure for years to come will be such a treat. Seeing our proofs brought such emotion and happiness. We could not be more impressed or thrilled. Book with no worries; she knows what she's doing.

The best of the best! When we say our wedding photos for the first time we were speechless and tearful, all at the same time. Alicea did a magnificent job. People will be talking about our wedding photos til the end of time. Deciding on a photographer for our wedding that was June 21, 2014 was not difficult at all when we saw Alicea's website. Check out her website and see for yourself, this lady is awesome!!!!
