What type of session do you need?

Photography Session Types

There are a number of different options when it comes to portrait sessions with Carrie Els Photography and it can be a bit confusing. Here are the options in a bit more detail so you can choose the best type of session for you. Pricing for the session fee can be find here.

My Boutique Portrait Session is absolutely perfect for families, newborns, kids and more. You will receive a complimentary consultation so we can go over all the details for the shoot and design the look of your portraits. You also get access to my client preparation guide to help you through the process. The session will last approximately 2 hours but is flexible to suite your family. You can come to my studio in Leamington Spa or you can choose a location of your choice. I have found that Maternity, Newborn and Baby sessions all work great at the studio and families with older kids are happier at the local park so the kids can run around between portraits.

Do you need a bit more pampering? If so, the Beauty Portrait Experience is the best option for you. In addition to all the great benefits in my Boutique Portrait Sessions, like the pre-session consultation and client preparation guide. You will also enjoy a professional makeover – you will receive hair styling & full make-up on the day of your photography shoot done at the studio. You will also have a longer session with more clothing options so you will have plenty of variety in your images. These sessions are great for contemporary Beauty Portraits, Personal Branding images as well as Boudoir. You can also include a friend so share this experience with you and bring in your family for more traditional family portrait photography at the end of the shoot.

If you are looking for both a Maternity & Newborn Session then this is the best session type for you. By booking these two photography sessions at the same time, you will get a great discount and the peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of for you. Your maternity portraits will be done at about 34 weeks pregnant and can also include your partner and any other siblings. The newborn baby photos are best done under 14 days (don’t forget you baby will never be this little again!) and will booked based on the due date and then confirmed when the baby arrives. Each session is a full Boutique Portrait Session with all the benefits listed above.

Babies change so much in their first year of life and it will worth capturing every moment. My Baby Plan sessions are done to capture these main milestones. We have the first session when your baby is smiling and able to do their tummy time mini push up (about 4 months). The second is captured when your baby is able to sit up on their own (about 8 months). The final session is done at about 12 months and it is time to celebrate – these sessions can include a fun cake smash and splash (click here for an example of one of the fun photo shoots).
