Thank you to all who applied!!

Cristina Elisa Photography is looking for a newborn model in April. If you are due any day now, and have not scheduled with another photographer, this opportunity could be for you! Please read the full post for details and the application process.

Model call sessions are held in my home studio in Frederick, MD. The purpose of a model call is for me to test out a new prop or workflow. All styling will be done by me and determined by what I need to photograph. The set I will be photographing is shown below. If you have a minimalist style, you may just love this! The wrap indicates where baby will be placed. I will be photographing this set from a few different angles and will also aim to get some detail shots of your little one. The session comes at no cost to you and you will receive 3 images of your choosing in exchange for your time. You will have the option to add more images or complete your gallery at a discounted rate.

Newborns must be between 7 and 21 days old on 4/26 or 4/27. Sessions are for the swaddled baby only. Family photos are not included and only one parent may accompany the baby. Model calls are held at 9:30 am and can last up to two hours. A typical model call is done in an hour and a half, but in that time your baby is my boss! If we need extra time for feeding, changing, rocking, whatever it may be, I will always take the time to make sure your baby is happy and comfy above all else.

Please refer to this list of requirements

  • You must be willing to travel to my in-home studio located in Frederick, Maryland.
  • You must not be booked with another photographer for a newborn or model session, this would be unfair to their business and mine.
  • You must sign a model call contract and model release. Model calls are held for the purpose of displaying images on my website, social media, and marketing materials.
  • Only one parent may attend the session with the baby.
  • You must have childcare arrangements for older siblings.
  • You understand that if you do not show up to your appointed session, you forfeit your spot and will not be considered for future model calls.
  • You understand you are receiving a complimentary session and 3 digital images as a thank you. Additional purchases may be made, but are not required.
  • You agree to have clean hands and nails and keep nails natural or with neutral polish only. Mom or dad’s hands can make a nice addition to portraits.

Serious inquiries only. Please do not apply if you cannot adhere to the above criteria.
