Welcome to Nicole Christine Photography! We are excited you are

considering us to capture the best of this special time in your family’s

life. The moments that come along with having a precious newborn

baby are fleeting, and we are excited that you are considering us to

capture the beauty of your family. We absolutely love what we do, and

we would be honored to share in this special milestone with you.

One of the instrumental aspects of our business is to provide an

exceptional client experience before, during and after your session.

This is achieved through planning and preparation…everything

including styling and outfit choices, directions to our studio, and the

reason WHY you are doing these photos will be covered prior to your


The Nicole Christine Studio in located Roselle, Illinois. Nicole’s clients

come from the entire Chicagoland area for the NCP Studio experience.

We hope to see you in the studio soon!

Wherever You Go, Be All There.

The Session Experience

Before Your Session:

Here’s What to Expect:

• Nicole does take a limited number of newborn sessions monthly. Because of this it is crucial to reserve

your spot as early as three months prior to your approximate delivery date. That gives us enough time

fully customize a newborn session just for you!

• Maternity sessions are best held between 32-34 weeks

• Complete the contract online and pay your session fee and $200 print or product minimum.

• Planning tips, session questionnaire, and studio information will be emailed prior to your session.

• NCP’s styling service information will be emailed to you approximately 3-4 weeks prior to your due date.

This easy to use tool is extremely helpful for pairing up photographer-approved outfits, accessories,

shoes, etc. prior to the session.

During Your Session:

• Arrive at the studio promptly at your agreed upon session start time.

• You won’t need to worry about buying props, we take care of all of that and have ideas already dreamed

up for your session before you arrive.

• Yes, parents are always highly encouraged to get in the photos with your baby at your newborn session.

Trust us, you won’t regret it. You can never have enough photos with your precious new baby!

• Try and RELAX! It’s the genuine interactions and raw emotions that create the timeless unposed

photographs. Let’s focus on moments, not poses.

After Your Session:

• Within 30 days after your session date, your online gallery will be ready for viewing. Any balance due on

your package will be due at this time.

The NCP Studio

Our pristine, all white studio is

crafted to provide a stunning

classic setting to capture your

moments. The studio is filled

with beautiful, big windows

that let in gorgeous light. The

soft white interior gives the

studio space an airy and

tranquil feel. The NCP style of

photography includes a blend of

documentary and classic

portraiture. Our photographs

aren’t overloaded with props

and accessories. We tend to stick

with whites and simple, natural

earth-tones. The minimalistic

look and feel of the NCP studio

allows us to create authentic and

classic photographs to

document this time in your

child’s life.
