Fine Art Newborn, Child, & Family Portraiture 

(585) 622-4585 ᐧ Webster, NY 14580

Greetings (and congratulations)!

Thank you for responding to my model search for families due to deliver a baby in January or February 2020. I would like to give you more information about this model search and gather some data from you that I will use in my selection process.

A quick note about Jen Semmler Photography: I specialize in fine art portraiture and custom create beautiful wall art, table top art, and albums for my clients. I serve the Rochester, NY area, photographing both on location outdoors as well as in my studio. If you haven’t already perused my website, please look around. If you like what you see, please read on!

This model call is intended to allow me create portraits in my studio setting. I am beginning to accumulate dresses for Mommas, so I would like to use those for these sessions. Ideally, I would like to capture skin-to-skin portraits, if possible.

These will be posed portraits of newborns with their parents; snuggled, cuddled, and cherished. I believe that newborns want and need to have physical contact. These portraits also allow a parent to really see and remember how tiny their newborn baby truly was. The portraits will be used to create a new sample album for my studio and promotional materials, so a model release form will be required.      

If selected, you will receive a gift credit for portraits with a total value of $400. The gift credit entitles you to a newborn portrait session with Jen Semmler Photography (valued at $250), plus a product credit worth $150 which can be used to purchase two 8x10 fine art prints or one 11x14 fine art print. If you wish, you may instead apply your $150 product credit towards the purchase of custom wall art, table top art, or album. Learn about art products here. Digital files are not automatically included with the session, but they may be purchased separately.

Please complete the application through the link below, and I will contact you if you are the right fit for this project. From there, I’ll arrange an in person consultation where I can provide you with more details and we can plan your session if you wish to take part. I will also share product samples and answer any questions you have. If you would like to schedule your model session, you will be asked to place a refundable $50 retainer during the consultation. This retainer will be refunded to you at your portrait session, but this $50 retainer will be forfeited if you cancel or do not attend your session. Since sessions are planned around specific families, I need to be sure the session is attended.
