How does the booking process work with Steph Kines Photo?

You are well into your second trimester and you have been on the fence with whether or not you want maternity photos taken (the answer is always yes!!) and even more on the fence with newborn photography, as you are not sure how you will feel after giving birth and there is no way you will be “camera ready” for a photographer. 

I will be the first to tell you that you are not alone in this sentiment.  And I will also be the first to tell you that no parent has ever regretted doing a newborn session, but they have regretted not doing a newborn session.  

Natural Newborn and Family Photography

My photographic style is more “slices of your life” and “the essence of Mom/Dad”.  We can feel the support, love and presence of parents in the images, but you are not the focus, your new baby is!  

Once you have gone back and forth enough with the uncertainty of booking and have decided to go ahead and document this milestone in your life, you can start thanking yourself almost immediately and do one of these options.  You can pop over to my website to submit the contact form, or you can send me an email directly at

My entire booking process is digitally sound and efficient. It will save you time and brain power, I promise.  Through a series of links, videos and imagery, you will be able to easily find the answer to most of your questions through my Welcome Guide.

Once you have looked over the Welcome Guide and completed a short questionnaire, we will work the through the process of scheduling around work, day care and nap routines to find a time that works for you and your family.  After your session is booked, you will receive a Style Guide for inspiration and the do’s and don’t’s of clothing.  You will also have access to your client portal where you can easily sign digital contracts and print release forms to print your images, yay!

All clients will also get my personal cell phone number for any and all questions about their upcoming session.  Seriously, when working with families I have seen how stressful it can be to pull everything together and I want to make that process as easy and supportive as possible.  I am here for you for all the things!!

My workflow is in place to save you time, keep things organized and as simple as possible.
