Pay It Forward Sessions
Have you or someone you know struggled with infertility and/or recurrent miscarriage or infant loss and currently expecting or adopting a baby in 2019? Fill out the form below and you or your loved one could be chosen to receive a free 1-2 hour newborn mini session including 5 free digital images from Obleek Photography!
My husband Nathan and I struggled for over 7 years before we were blessed to conceive our now 7-year-old son. We endured years of tests, medications, and injections, 8 IUIs, 2 fresh cycles of IVF and 2 frozen embryo transfers. We suffered through 3 miscarriages along the way (1 singleton and a set of twins). Having our son eases the pain of those years of struggle but it is something we will never forget. To this day we are not sure whether we want to endure it again, and so we remain happy with our family of 3.
Almost everyone knows someone going through something similar. Infertility affects families emotionally, physically, mentally, and financially. I want to help ease the financial (and hopefully a bit of the emotional) burden for several couples per year by donating my time and talent to provide cherished newborn photos of their miracle baby. Please share your story by filling out the form below. If you are chosen to participate we will contact you to gather more information.
The Fine Print
- Not everyone who applies will receive a session. Session slots will depend on availability.
- You MUST NOT have a session booked with another newborn photographer. An exclusivity contract will apply.
- Donated sessions are not full newborn sessions and colours and props will be chosen for you. We will aim for 1-2 prop set-ups, 1-2 blanket or fur poses, and 1-2 family poses (siblings and parents of baby only please).
- Sessions are up to 2 hours in length.
- If baby is not settling easily then they will be swaddled in various wraps.
- The best images from the session will be selected to present to you in an online gallery within a few days of your session. There will be 1 fully edited image to show you the final result and the rest will be unedited.
- You will have 48 hours to choose your favourite 5 and will be able to purchase additional images if you wish. Your chosen images will then be edited and sent to you through email.
- You MUST be comfortable with us using your images online and on social media and a signed model release will be required.
- If chosen, a $100 deposit is required to hold your spot. This is simply to show you are serious about the session. Once the session is completed, the $100 will either be credited to you (should you choose to order additional images) or fully refunded.
