The Custom Portrait Experience
If you've never had a custom portrait experience, I'm here to tell you ~ it is something you will absolutely love! Rockabye Photography is not the place for a walk-in, next-in-line service. Everything is custom tailored to you and your needs as you welcome your beautiful new baby into the world.
We will set up a consultation (preferably in-studio if possible) where I can get to know you and your wants for your session. If you are a maternity client, we can go over wardrobe options from my collection of high-end gowns and discuss your needs with hair and makeup. I would love to show you what I can offer you as an artist!
On the day of your session, we will shoot between 45 minutes to an hour (longer for newborn sessions) and will be either in the studio or at a local spot that we can pick together. Our session will be mellow, laid back, and always fun while you watch me work with your little one to create something magical.
Approximately 3-4 weeks after your session is our big reveal! The time before this is where I encourage my clients to think about the types of products you may be interested in so you are ready for your ordering appointment. If you're not exactly sure and need some guidance, that's ok, too! During our ordering appointment, you will get to view a slideshow of your images that I have carefully picked and created. Here, you will get to choose from the different collections and wall art that you would like display in your home as well as gift to others. (This is the really fun part!)
Your finished artwork will be ready in approximately 4 weeks (6 for albums) and can be picked up from the studio. They will be gift wrapped and ready for you to take home or to give to a loved one.

Custom Heirloom Albums
These are something new to Rockabye that I am SO excited about! These albums are first custom designed and created by me to reflect the beauty of your babe & your family. They are then hand-crafted, folded, and hand-bound in Europe with archival inks and superior acid-free papers to ensure longevity and heirloom quality. I am so passionate about ensuring the quality of not only my work but the artwork that you purchase & these are nothing but the best. They are then packaged in a linen pouch & box for the ultimate preservation.
Clients have the opportunity to purchase my standard 10x10 album as well as a 4x4 grandparent album that is absolutely perfect for gifting to the grandparents and is purse-size!
The Heirloom Canvas
You will NEVER go to Costco again. Not only are these canvases absolutely stunning with a perfect color match and satin finish but they are archival grade, OBA-free (that just means they are free of some seriously yucky chemicals that ruin your photos!) gallery wrapped canvases using the latest fine-art technology in printing as well as archival grade inks boasting the longevity of over 100 years. Every canvas is sprayed with a non-yellowing print satin. This varnish also prevents scuffing and fading, and protects the canvas in humid environments as well as UV light.
When you are purchasing images of your little one and your growing family, the most important thing as that these images will LAST. Not only will you be able to hand these canvases down to future generations but you will rest easy knowing that they are protected from the elements that ruin all other prints and canvases. Your canvases will go home to you in a linen and flannel envelope for continued protection & for optimal gifting presentation for family and loved ones.
Fine Art Flat Prints
My fine art prints are truly something to talk about. Each print is created to the highest quality with archival grade, high-definition inks and acid free, fine art papers. Each print comes in a gorgeous matte finish which boasts the perfect complexion behind framed glass. It is highly recommended that all prints are framed using UV-protected glass as well as acid free mats & backing for the optimum guarantee in longevity. All clients will have the option to order their prints matted with acid-free, high quality mats, as well. (photo coming soon...)
