*IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING NEWBORN SESSIONS*


For my specialized newborn sessions - newborns are my the main focus of my time. I ask for sessions to be scheduled well in advance of delivery, I mark your due date on my calendar, and I ask to be added to your call list when baby is born. That allows me time to fit you into my schedule within 5-7 days after baby is born. As baby gets older they become more alert and less flexible which makes the sleepy poses harder to achieve.

I style my shoots, down to the very last details, ahead of your session. If there is a specific item that is very important to you that you are requesting be included in the session please let me know so we can discuss the possibility of one or two of them being incorporated. I strive to be as unique as possible for each new client and tend to stay away from common ‘trendy’ set ups. I own a backdrop & prop company so every session I have has the opportunity for unique props and designs being used. I love color and love accessorizing!

*If family or sibling images take with the newborn, are requested, we suggest a separately booked session.  Our main focus in a newborn session is on the newborn and the comfort of their experience over such a long day.  Newborn sessions can take up to 4 hours, on average, because of the time and effort it takes to get a newborn to stay asleep, calm, and still for their session.  If baby becomes upset during the session it can be very challenging to sooth them back to sleep for the 'sweet sleepy poses' that everyone likes.  The more chance for disruption during a session, the more chance you will get very limited final images.   Adding in additional setups for family shoots and sibling shoots becomes too taxing to the newborn in an already lengthy session.  In addition, adding extra family members (especially small children who generally will not want to sit still for over 4 hours) into a small studio [where quiet and calm is very necessary] can really disrupt the session.

*Please DO NOT come early to your session. My Typical Newborn Session Work Flow:

*I usually have you arrive into a warm, quiet studio, where {hopefully} baby falls asleep or is asleep when you arrive. I typically start with baby posed on the beanbag on various fabrics and then (if baby is cooperative). I move to some prop based images with set-ups I've created/designed.

*If that flow is disrupted with extra people, children, or a noisy environment it can take a very long time to soothe them back to sleep, elongating the session even more and "working" baby even further. I prefer one person to bring baby to the session appointment (if extremely necessary a 2nd person or helper).

Please feel free to bring a book/magazines, crossword puzzles, headphones, etc...whatever helps you get some relaxing time in while the session is being conducted! :)

Other Information

Studio Location:

•My home-base studio is located on Kadena Air Force Base in Sebille Manor on Okinawa, Japan easily accessible from Kadena's Gate 2 by the USO.

•I prefer studio but also shoot “on-location.” Locations can be at the beach or any local spot you love on the Island within a reasonable distance from Kadena.  The options of where we can go are endless!


What should we  wear to our couples or family sessions?

Clothing is up to you!

•Suggestions: Try your best to avoid clothing with bright/busy patterns, visible designer logos or writing on it. In general, solid colors are best.

•Simplicity is important for your clothing and accessories. Darker clothing minimizes, while lighter clothing slightly emphasizes body size.


•There's no need for everyone in the family to match each other, but you should consider colors that compliment each other. Varying shades of the same color and earth tones work well.

•Try to avoid wearing white, off white, cream, or very pale pink for outdoor shoots as the sun tends to wash out the color.

•And don't forget your shoes! Shoes are just as important as your clothes because they show in photos. Most often, dark-toned shoes work best. Bare feet can be fun as well where appropriate.


What happens after the session?

After the editing process all “proofs” will be placed in gallery on this website (approximately) up to 4-8 weeks after the session (but can be sooner...it just depends on my workload) and will be available for viewing and purchase.

I review each photo I do custom enhancements where I feel it will look best.

This personal attention to detail takes extra time but is worth the wait!

Contacting Jen:

Contact via e-mail works best for me because of the hours I work with my other FT business. I'm usually tending to my photography work late at night.

We can certainly discuss your session over the phone in more detail if necessary.
