CLJ Photography specializes in the maternity and newborn luxury portrait experience. Arguably, these are the most important experiences in your life – the life within your womb and bringing your child home. There is no question, the worth of these images. Your children are so precious, give them the gift of their beginnings.
Before you pay your booking fee, we will schedule you for a studio visit to sit down with Cydnee. Finding the right maternity and newborn photography is similar to finding the right doctor. You are trusting us to handle this fragile, little life. To hold them with all the love they need and pose them gently. Meeting with Cydnee prior to your session also helps her to create your ideal images. An important piece of this art will be how to incorporate meaningful items into your session.
Our studio’s mission is to capture your inner strength and femininity through timeless works of art. Details and pricing are provided at the studio visit. To book a session, a deposit will be paid at that time.
If you are booking a maternity session, you will be scheduled for a gown fitting a couple weeks before your session. This can be a lot of fun! Your mother, sister, best friend and spouse are always welcome to help you pick out the perfect gown.
If you have not booked a maternity session, we will go over the design of your newborn set-ups. This can be via email. The main goal is to get an idea of how your images are going to look. We will ask for images of the nursery and your home to understand your own style.
We see the beautiful curves of your pregnancy. Understanding exactly how to pose each body type in the most flattering way takes time and is carefully perfected. We have a large selection of wardrobe options including sheer silks, flowing dresses and fitted gowns to accentuate your body. The Maternity Portrait Experience continues with well-deserved pampering, hair styling and make-up. Embrace your femininity and your gorgeous bump!
Feel free to browse our gown gallery.
Cydnee’s extensive experience and continual education in this field makes her one of the top newborn photographers in the Dallas area.
The studio has a calm, warm environment and Cydnee will photograph your little one until the best images are taken. She will not rush the creative process – the session depends on your baby.
Please note the perfect age for newborns is 5-14 days old. They still have that magically womb-like flexibility for the images you want. Please contact our studio in your second trimester to ensure availability.
Your actual shoot is only the beginning of creating these memories. We spend an extensive amount of time curating the images and fully processing them. The best images will be showcased in your gallery when you are invited back to the studio for your Portrait Reveal. You will love this part!
Digital images and products are sold in collections. You will be able to choose what images you love and finalize your order details.
