Pro Tip: Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of life.
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
The birth of a baby will mark the most defining moment in a person's life. From that day forward,
everything changes and means everything. And in just weeks, your new little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms. They are only this little for a very short time. With a newborn portrait session at Diane Bartoo Photography, we help you preserve those memories forever.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
We provide beautiful pregnancy clothing for mamas. These gowns are top-quality and made from chiffon and silk so that we can capture gorgeous flowing movement of the dress. Our newborn wraps are made from angora, merino wool, and cashmere. You will not need to purchase anything for mama or baby; all props, blankets, and head pieces are made from the finest materials and are available for your use.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
Pregnancy and newborn photography are best done within a specific point of development. I like to photography pregnant mamas between 32 and 37 weeks so we have a beautifully round belly and mama is still feeling active. Newborn babies are best photographed before they are 10 days old. These are only guidelines for best-case scenarios, and we do photograph outside these guidelines.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am very comfortable working with mamas and newborns. With 20 years of photography experience and over five of those years working exclusively with mamas and newborns, I have perfected my craft in the pregnancy and newborn photography industry.
Stephanie Sundell calls upon 18 years of fashion-photography experience to capture every fetching feature and smoky glance in sharp digital images. After scheduling a boudoir session and consulting with exclusively female staff members, subjects don their sultriest teddy or skimpiest hazmat suit and step in front of the camera as the photographer offers knowledgeable guidance on poses and positions in a private and pressure-free setting. At the conclusion of the shoot, centerfolds saunter home to peruse and choose their favorite images on a password-protected website. Photo professionals retouch and enhance the chosen shots, then present clients with a CD of all 10 images to create as many professional prints, racy emails, or surprising mortgage applications as they desire. Subjects can also boost their bombshell status with professional hair and makeup services for an additional $75.

Bring in your four-legged friend for a shoot that will give him or her a chance to receive all the attention—in other words: business as usual.
Lauren Taylor lives in an orbit around the camera. As a teenager, she modeled in front of the lens. She later attended the Institute of Studio and Makeup Design, after which she would collaborate with photographers behind the camera. Lauren eventually gravitated to the camera itself, which she now wields with aplomb in her own photography studio. Here, her life-long experience and education converge in the work of shooting sumptuous and striking images.
Thanks to her time in the sights of the camera eye, Lauren has a particular way of making subjects feel comfortable. She especially enjoys sessions with other women, documenting expectant mothers or capturing sensual boudoir portraits. Otherwise, Lauren's newborn shoots capture babies in their most innocent state, before they learn to talk or knit a ski-mask. Lauren still exercises her eye for fashion, snapping stills for advertisements and industry headshots. She also documents weddings, taking a photojournalistic approach to event photography by capturing candid moments and emotional milestones.
At Little Black Dress Photography, the person behind the camera is more than a floating head. Each female photographer continuously coaches their subjects, guiding them through different come-hither poses during seductive boudoir photo shoots. The unflagging support from the shutterbugs is just one element of the studio's mission to inspire confidence in their clients. Several other amenities, including wardrobes and professional styling services, combine to transform guests into self-assured models, whose portraits make enticing gifts for significant others.
Upon their arrival, ladies can peruse a fully stocked closet of lingerie and 1940s-style pin-up outfits in sizes 0–22. Though staffers furnish polka-dot dresses, thigh-high stockings, and garter belts, they also encourage clients to bring favorite items from home. Stylists can then complement new looks by imbuing hair with bounce and eyelashes with drama, prepping patrons to cast flirty glances from velvet couches or atop vintage suitcases.
These shoots yield high-resolution pictures that typically require little to no retouching—the staff is more committed to enhancing natural beauty than artificially beautifying people by reshaping body parts or airbrushing out extra eyelashes.
