San Antonio Newborn Photography Studio: Covid-19 Update

Happy San Antonio Summer everyone! It’s been pretty quiet here on the blog (though it’s NOT been quiet in our house!) 😆 The past couple months have found me putting the studio on the back burner to focus on helping my kids finish “Covid-19 School” (as they called it). And my husband being out of state for the first 4 months of the year didn’t make it any easier…But, being that I just opened the studio here in San Antonio about 6 months prior, I was still relatively “invisible” here by Google standards. So, I decided to just put everything related to my business on hold and focus on my family. At first, we relaxed with another week of spring break, then focused on schoolwork, read a lot, snuggled and watch a lot of movies, did a lot of crafts…It was nice to slow down and remember what’s REALLY important. (It wasn’t nice all the time, mind you- this was still two young children at home for 3 months!) 😉. But by and large, we made the best of it.
And since newborn photography is “non-essential,” (which, of course, I will always argue to the opposite!) 😉 I wasn’t allowed to open anyway. So, I took it as a clear sign of what I was supposed to focus on. 😉 it was a no-bra

Thankfully, school is now over for the summer, and perGovernor Abbott’s orders, I can officially REOPEN! I don’t take this lightly, either. Luckily, I’m ahead of the game when it comes to maintaining health standards in my home studio, because my tiny clients’ health and safety is and has ALWAYS been my first priority.

Newborn Photography Health & Safety during Covid-19

For those families looking to book a newborn or baby session here in the SLP studio, rest assured I will be taking every precaution to keep your family (and my own) safe and healthy during this time. Here is a run-down of everything that I have ALWAYS done in the studio, and the additional steps I’m taking to be extra safe during this time:

  1. As always, sessions in the studio are by appointment only. It is not open to the public.
  2. As always, I practice proper handwashing before handling any tiny clients, and use additional hand sanitizer whenever required throughout the session. (For example, I always wash my hands before starting a session. If I change a wet diaper while baby is being posed, I will then use hand sanitizer, since I never leave baby unattended. If I have to itch my nose? hand sanitizer afterward! 😛 My background as an early-education consultant comes in handy here!)
  3. As always, all fabrics, outfits, props, etc. are washed and sanitized after every session.
  4. As always, the cover for the changing table (in the client lounge for mom and dad’s convenience) is washed and sanitized after every session.
  5. As always, I ask families to remove their shoes at the door, since babies love to crawl on our floor!

Additionally, I’m implementing the following until further notice:

  1. I will be wearing a mask throughout all studio sessions
  2. Studio newborn sessions are limited to immediate family only, and studio sitter/baby milestone sessions are limited to baby and parent(s).
  3. Families are asked to wear masks whenever possible (i.e. It’s not always possible with a toddler!). 😀 I have a supply of disposable masks (that are far more comfortable to wear) if needed.
  4. Additional sanitizing will be done between every session (e.g. door handles, shelving, mini-fridge handles, table surfaces, etc.) to ensure a clean and sanitary space.

Now family sessions are even simpler, as I shoot outdoors! Most SLP family sessions are shot at a beautiful off-the-beaten-path area away from other people. And though my families won’t be wearing masks for their session, I will. And for part of my sessions, I use a long focal-length lens which requires me to be about 10-20 feet away from my subjects. This makes it pretty easy to let kiddos run around and capture them from afar. When I want to shoot closer, my face mask serves as an extra precaution. In fact, shooting family photos at this time is not only simple, I think it’s a welcome reprieve from staying inside for so long. I’m really looking forward to some summer family sessions!

Furthermore, I’m happy to be able to tell clients that our family has mostly stayed at home since March. Our “travel” being limited to the grocery store for groceries (where I wear my mask, and a hip belt with hand sanitizer- like a Covid-19 outlaw!) and our nearby Mexican restaurant for take-out (because I’ve cooked enough in the past 3 months to last the next year!)

I feel good knowing that my business can still serve families while keeping them safe. And for my own family’s safety, I ask all clients to delay any sessions should they have potentially been exposed to the public while not observing standard precautions (such as a face covering or necessary hand washing).

I am excited to start shooting again. It’s been too long! Working with my sweet families and snuggling their precious babies is my happy place. I love what I do and cab’t wait to get back to work.

Should you have any questions at all about safety precautions I’m taking during this time or any other questions about SLP sessions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line or give me a ring at 210-489-1790. I’ll be here!

Hope to see your sweet families soon!

My SATX studio is now open!

Da da da daaaaa… I’m so excited to share with you the first beautiful tiny Texan to visit my newborn photography studio in San Antonio!! It’s been a long few months of setting up my home studio here near Stone Oak (since our move from the east coast) and I was getting impatient to get back to work cuddling all those newborns! (What can I say? It’s a tough job but someone’s gotta do it.) ;P

After several months of painting walls, building shelving, hanging curtains, installing hardware, stocking supplies, sorting props…. my studio is once again open for business! It took me a few months longer than I had planned- which should be no surprise because starting a business over in a new location is tough work! (And I’ve done it 3 times now!) But I’m so thrilled with my new space, my awesome client lounge, but mostly, these little sweeties that get to visit me!

Say hello to baby Liam.

I couldn’t have asked for a better morning spent with this sweet boy and his Momma! Mom and I chatted while Liam slept and I was able to make one of my favorite gallery of photographs ever. EVER.

Gahhhh… I love my job! Enjoy this peek at into Liam’s newborn photo shoot.

    When should You book a Newborn Session? insight from San Antonio Newborn Photographer Sarah Lake Photography, LLC

    newborn baby in a bowl with tiny teddy bear

    I often hear the questions, “When is the best time to book newborn photos?” and also, “When is the best time to TAKE newborn photos?”  And there are two very different answers to these questions…

    When should you BOOK a newborn session?

    When should you BOOK a newborn session? As soon as you know you’re expecting!  🙂  Well, it may not be completely necessary to book that early, however it’s a great time to begin looking for newborn photographers near you and decide on what type of artwork you’re looking for!  And booking (meaning paying any deposit required to secure your date on your photographer’s schedule) is best done– at the latest– during your second trimester.  The closer you get to baby’s due date, the more likely the photographer will be completely booked during that time.  It’s first reserved, first served- so be sure to snag your slot early on!

    But WHEN do we HOLD the photo session?

    That’s typically done within baby’s first two weeks of life!  During their first 7-14 days or so, babies are still VERY sleepy and very flexible- just like they were in the womb.  This new-ness is what allows them to be molded into those adorable, curly, womb-like features that highlights all their tiny, precious features.  It also means they will likely sleep for the majority of their session (expect for nursing breaks, diaper changes, and mommy or daddy snuggle breaks, of course!) A sleeping baby is simply easier to photograph and allows the photographer to capture a wider variety of images for their families.

    Types of newborn photo sessions

    Signature Newborn Session

    The types of images created by newborn photographers has come to be as diverse as the babies themselves.  But typically, you’ll see a couple of styles:  There’s a traditional portrait session- like of baby Harry here- that uses custom styled set-ups to capture beautifully-lit images of baby, and their family.

    Fresh 48 Session

    There are also sessions that are considered more “Lifestyle,” meaning they are captured just as they’re happening, their surrounding environment included- either in your home or in the hospital.  With a Fresh 48 Hospital session– pictured below- your photographer captures the brand-newness of your baby and your family-  right in your hospital room.

    newborn baby still in hospital wrap

    Whatever style you prefer, it’s never too early to get in touch with the photographer whose work you love and tell them you’d like to get on their calendar for the month that you’re due.  In fact, the earlier, the better for YOU.  Those first couple days home from the hospital, you will most likely feel like you’ve lost all brain function.  Seriously- I can speak from experience!  Having your baby’s session all planned is going to be SUCH a relief for you at an exhausting time of your new lives.  Waiting until after baby arrives to try and choose a photographer is always harder and more stressful.  So, I encourage parents to book their session when baby is still in mom’s belly, because not only does it make a better experience for YOU, it is simply easier and less stressful on you during an already life-changing period of time.

    Booking your newborn session with SLP

    When you choose to book your newborn’s very first portraits with Sarah Lake Photography, I will essentially block of a period of several days around your due date (since we know we can’t really county on baby to come on the day we have planned!) And after baby is born, we then finalize your date and time to bring baby to the studio- which is usually around baby’s second week. 🙂

    Furthermore, I only schedule a limited number of newborns each month.  This allows me to enough time to plan and customize for each of my clients, schedule around early babies, late babies, c-sections and the like.  

    I only book a limited number of newborns each month, as I am committed to giving each of my clients an amazing experience and the very best customer service.  After the care and safety of my tiny subjects, my clients are my number one priority.  I am so grateful for their trust in allowing me to capture their families and for supporting my business of doing what I love!

    I you have any questions about a newborn session with SLP, please drop me a line here!  I’m more than happy to help!

      Fall Family Portraits- Southern TX Photographer Sarah Lake Photography

      Happy Fall y’all!  Well, not QUITE yet, but it’s definitely on its way!  Now that my family has returned from a wonderful month in Michigan spending time with grandparents and cousins, and school has once again started, it feels like things are back to normal again.  And for me, that means back to working full time at SLP!  And it just so happens that my favorite season is upon us:  Fall Family Portraits!  Fall is, by far, the most popular time for families to book family portrait sessions.  Why?  Beautiful fall colors… crisp, cool weather… less humidity to mess with Mama’s hairdo… Fall’s the best!  I was lucky enough to capture this adorable Maryland family this summer, and I can’t begin to tell you the joy it brought me to create these images for them.  This session made me so excited to think about the amazing fall portraits that will be happening soon!

      Tips for timeless family photos…

      On another more practical note, this session was an ideal example of WHAT TO WEAR for your family photos.  Momma here did an amazing job of styling her family! I might be biased (because blue is my favorite color) but I truly love how the family’s wardrobe finished off their images in the most beautiful way. It took what could have been nice photographs and made them amazing.

      What did Mom do that works so well??  She chose similar tones for everyone. (Or is it intensities?)  You know, everyone was in light colors- a combination of whites, creams, and blues.  Everyone’s clothing complemented everyone else’s beautifully.  There wasn’t a bold or dark color stuck in somewhere.  (Not that you can’t do “bold” colors for portraits… you absolutely can!  See our Pinterest board, or our next blog post on Wardrobe tips for family portraits!)  But here, the soft, neutral tones are a never-fail no-brainer for pulled-together portraits.   😉

      I hope you enjoy this sweet family’s session as much as I did shooting it!  I cannot help but smile when I see those adorable innocent little faces and their toothy grins.  And they’re not even mine!  I can just imagine the joy that Mom and Dad get from these.  And what an honor that is for ME to be a part of that- I am so blessed to do what I do!

        Custom Newborn Portrait Session: Sarah Lake Photography

        I am still a little in awe of this gorgeous woman and her brand new baby girl. She arrived to my home studio with little Kensley looking amazing, and as you can see- made my job super easy!

        But moms: don’t worry if you feel like a puffy, exhausted train wreck after your baby is born (I know I did!).  When I capture you with your tiny brand new babe, I can bring out the very best “you” in your portraits- both by posing, as well as editing.)  😉

        This Momma, though… Stunning.

        woman of color with baby girlAnd her little baby girl truly fit so perfectly in her arms.  I just visited her the other day (several weeks after this session) to deliver Mom her fine art pieces, and Kensley- now going on 2 months old- is way too big to be held like this anymore!  It’s no secret that babies grow quickly, yet somehow I’m still shocked EVERY time I see them.  This is the only time in your babies’ lives that they change this quickly… doubling their size in mere weeks.  THIS is why we capture them so tiny.  THIS is what’s hardest to remember after it passes.  I am so thankful that I was able to create these images for K and baby Kensley, as she will never be able to go back to this time.  woman of color with baby girl
