Musings of a Marfan Mom

Newborn Photo Shoot


Thanks to a Facebook/Twitter friend, I stumbled across Carol Hogan’s photography business. I loved everything I saw on her website and wondered if I could afford a portrait session for my family. I was excited to see that that her rates were actually really reasonable. Then, I saw that she was offering free portrait sessions as she builds her clientèle here in the San Francisco Bay Area (even better!). I emailed Carol right away about doing a newborn photo shoot for sometime after my son was born. A little more than a week after Baby J’s birth, Carol was at my apartment setting up.

It was a great experience. Carol was friendly, gentle with the baby, patient with my frequent nursing breaks to try to put him to sleep, and I’m really happy with how the photographs turned out.

If you’re in the Bay, Carol is still offering free sessions for those who book by February.

* My receiving a free session had nothing to do with my blog. Carol didn’t ask me to write this; I wanted to because my family had a good experience with her.
