Stuff in the ‘maternity’ Category
We have been busy with Babies
Over the last few months we have had several maternity sessions and newborn babies. One such session even had us going to the hospital within the first moments after this little one was born. Below are a few of our favorite images from these sessions.
Here at Wertman Photography we customize each maternity and newborn session to what you would like to get.
We even come to you if you want the life style approach. The families featured within this post chose to do it all at the studio.
We played with a few new ideas, such as silhouettes and simulating a bedroom setup, featuring the baby with the parents softly in the background.
We also incorporated rings and tiaras. They were all fun sessions and we are looking forward to a few more already on the schedule for later this month.
Whatever you preference and whatever it is you would like us to capture, we will be sure to accommodate your wishes. We discuss it all in your pre-session consultation, taking notes and preparing the studio accordingly. We also make sure that its is nice and warm in here to baby does not get cold.
We use our constant lights for added warmth for baby and have also found that the constant lights do not make baby flinch as a flash system may.
Please vote on your favorite image so we can enter our families in a drawing for a portrait. You will also be entered into a drawing for a family session up to 5 people for voting.
Over the last few months, we have had the privilege to capture several maternity sessions and the resulting newborn sessions, tailoring each to what the family wanted. Each had it’s wonderful moments, but the one I am highlighting today holds a special place in my heart as it is the firstborn of a sweet couple who we have been creating memories for since they got engaged. Every time we get together, their love for each other shines stronger than the last and seeing them add a little bundle to this love has been precious. It is these sessions I live for, these moments that hold special meaning and are the reason why I do what I do.
We did a series of three sessions, two of which were maternity, the first one being the gender reveal session, the second being the big belly session and of course, the third one being the newborn session.
This couple is a hoot. We always laugh a lot when we get together and everything is very natural and free flowing. I make suggestions and the two of them interpret them in their own perfect way. For our gender reveal, my mommy-to-be had very specific ideas and working in the upstairs floor of an old building that houses a restaurant and bed and breakfast on the first and second floor and was under construction, gave us a perfect background to not only showcase the changes that were happening with this sweet couple but also the freedom to write on brick walls and contrast roughness and softness.
For our second session, we were still able to go to the floor that was under construction as there are big windows and with the now larger belly, I wanted to create some silhouette images I had not been able to get in the earlier session. We also drove than old family house for outdoor shots.
Each of the three sessions included shots in front of an antique mirror recording progress and change.
For our newborn session we started in the nursery with a very bright-eyed 1 week old baby girl who gave us more than we had imagined. Even at her tender age, her parent’s personalities are showing through and she was ready for action.
For the second half of the session we returned to the old building to add to our collection of mirror shots and add a few images of the little one in her mommy’s wedding gown and images of the three of them as the new family that they are.
Being allowed to take a part in a young family’s happiness is a privilege and honor we do not take lightly here at Wertman Photography. This is a special moment in a couple’s live and amidst the chaos of lost sleep, diaper changes at 3am and bleary-eyed happiness it is important to step back for a couple of hours and just enjoy this bundle of joy and let us record these moments to look back on when everything settles down.
I recently had some fun with a brand new baby boy and his mommy. This little guy was a lot of fun to work with and like any newborn had his moments of getting hungry, sleepy and being wide-awake.
I keep the studio warm and the constant lighting I use in studio helps to elevate the temperature more, making it the right condition to capture the little nude shots all mommies want of their new little angel.
This cute little guy decided that he needed to be awake during the nude shots and started chewing on his fist.
He started to squirm around quite a bit, so we decided that a few shots with mommy holding him skin to skin would calm him down. I was able to get some precious images while he snuggled with mommy but after a while it became apparent that he wanted more. It was time to break and feed his little belly.
Here at Wertman Photography we build time into each newborn session for mom to relax and see to the needs of her baby. Good photographs can only be gotten from a happy child, so taking a break for feedings and diaper changes is part of the session.
After the filling of the tummy, our little man was ready for a nap. We switched places and snuggled him into a soft basket with a big bunny.
He was content and even woke up again after a while, making the cutest faces, varying his expressions as only a newborn can.
We finished the session with some more shots of mommy holding him and interacting with him, again an opportunity to catch some precious moments.
As you can see in the samples I inserted into this post, we take our time to catch moments that are fleeting and special. Rest assured that your newborn’s rapidly changing appearance will be etched in time at Wertman Photography and that you will receive photos that you will treasure for years to come.
We have also just finished three maternity sessions over the span of the past week, something that is a lot of fun for both the expectant mom and dad and us here at the studio. Call us today at 301-693-3021 if you are expecting and would love to capture that special time in your life or if you have just given birth to a precious bundle and would like to preserve these fleeting moments. We can help create wonderful memories, birth announcements, memory books and more.
It is here! We are so excited to share our new website with you. Wertman Photography has been in business for over 5 years and many exciting things are happening in 2015.
We are growing in many ways including our space at the studio, which doubled in February of this year. We now have three distinct shooting spaces available and a private dressing room to make glamor and boudoir sessions even more fun and private than they were before.
We learned that we would be able to expand our physical space at the end of the summer of 2014 and decided that other changes were also necessary. Our website needed some serious TLC and after seeing work our web designer had done for other photographers, we decided that Visual Lure would be a great fit for us. Justen designed a site that is not only gorgeous but really took our vision and our love for art deco to the next level. If you have not done so yet, please browse the entire site and enjoy not only the richness of the design and the ease of the functionality, but also our portfolios to understand who we are as a photographic studio.
When we opened our doors in 2009 we knew that we would give our clients a great experience during any session and that we would produce imagery that our clients would be proud to hang on their walls. Today, five and a half years into the photography business, we continue to provide you, our clients with a great experience and great images, and we offer products you may have never thought about. We continue to innovate and add more products and specialized services to our studio. You are treated with special care and every session you book with us is tailored to your needs.
This year we have revamped our High School Senior sessions to include up to three locations and clothing changes and hair and make-up for the girls. The offered collections can accommodate any budget and print collections include many exciting products.
Our Glamor and Boudoir sessions are also redesigned to include some great products when purchased as a collection and can also be booked as stand alones you can add to, including make-up and hair.
We love weddings and engagements, as you can see in our wedding portfolio and offer all-inclusive collections with plenty of time and great options built right in.
As our new site highlights, here at Wertman Photography we love timeless design and elegance with a modern twist our clients desire. Please read more on the about us page where you can find some client review and testimonials.
We want to thank Justen at Visual Lure for creating a great new website for us and hope that all of you enjoy it as much as we do.
