Jenny Gironda Photography » Maine Premier Newborn, Baby & Child Photographer, Jenny Gironda

I’m back!

My days of photographing rainbows, palm trees, aqua water, sunsets, hula dancers, parades, cityscapes, swimming with dolphins, and my crazy children at the most beautiful beaches I have ever laid eyes on…mostly with my iPhone camera…are behind me.  I am back in Maine, and in the middle of a whirlwind weekend of newborn and baby sessions!

Our two months in Hawaii were such an amazing experience.  I am so grateful for the quality time with my family, and the chance to reflect on my business going forward, in a relaxing and stress-free environment.

The next couple of months will be crazy — my May, June and July sessions were rescheduled to August and September.  After the rush passes, I will be back to my light workload for the rest of this year and next.

In addition to booking far fewer sessions, I will also be making a few other changes:

  • discontinuing mini sessions (with the exception of Pure Baby Sessions on the first Sunday of each month)
  • returning to my previous pricing structure (effective September 1)
  • individual, full-resolution digital files available for purchase
  • switching to an easier ordering system (allowing you to shop from any device)
  • complimentary mobile app custom digital photo albums
  • new products!

What won’t change:

  • only a ONE-WEEK wait (from your session date) until your portrait gallery of fully-edited images is available for you to view/share
  • sneak peek posted the same day as your session
  • 7-10 day turnaround time for prints, canvases and most products
  • email inquiries responded to within 24 hours
  • holiday card sessions in November
  • referral rewards

Scheduling update:

My September Beach Sessions have all been reserved.  I have two newborn session openings in September, two in October and two in November.  My next Pure Baby Session openings are October 5.  I am fully booked for outdoor sessions in 2014.  November Studio Holiday Card sessions will be announced in October.

I am so very grateful for all of my wonderful clients.  I cannot believe next year is Jenny Gironda Photography’s TENTH birthday!



So much for posting pictures of Hawaii during my hiatus! Anyway, just popping in to announce that I still have two September Beach Sessions available.  Last chance for an outdoor session in 2014!  Send an email to for details.  



My summer clients have already heard the news, but I’ll make it official with a blog post.

When my daughter was younger, we traveled quite often.  Our cross-country road trips and extended stays in California provided so many wonderful learning experiences and memories for her and our little family.  Our sweet boy is finally old enough for us to feel brave enough to hit the road again.  Our first plans fell through, but we just recently learned of a dreamy opportunity to spend a couple of months in Hawaii.  It took us a few seconds to decide YES…we want to do it!

I have already rescheduled my summer sessions.  (August clients:  you haven’t heard from me, because I’ll be back at the end of July.)  I will not be doing sessions while I am away.  I am going to soak up every moment of time with my favorite two little people, and focus 100% of my attention on my family.  I may occasionally update my blog, Instagram feed and Facebook page with personal shots of beaches, sunsets, rainbows and adventures, but not work.  I will set aside time once a week to answer email inquiries.

I was already close to being booked for the season before we decided to travel.  Now I only have a handful of openings left through September.  I am not yet booking sessions for October, but will keep an interest list for now.  I will likely offer a weekend or two of studio holiday sessions in November, but won’t announce the dates and details until the fall.

Here is my current availability:

Outdoor Sessions:  Booked/Away Through August; 2 September Openings; Interest List for October

Studio Sessions:  Booked/Away Through August; 2 September Openings; 4 October Openings; November Holiday Sessions Announced in September

Pure Baby Sessions: 4 Openings October 5; 4 Openings November 2; 4 Openings December 7

My remaining openings will be booked on a first-come, first-serve basis, so please contact me ( NOW if you wish to reserve a session.


And while I’m here, I have to gush about the Pure Baby Sessions.  I have had the sweetest, most adorable babies in the studio.  I absolutely LOVE doing these sessions!  I have met so many wonderful new clients, and hope I have the opportunity to continue to capture their children (and families!) as they grow.  Side note:  I am often asked if I only photograph babies, because that is mostly what I post sneak peeks of.  I actually photograph more families than anything else, but out of respect for my camera-shy adult clients, I typically only share images of the children.

Well, it is finally starting to feel and look like Spring around here.  Fingers crossed that our unpredictable weather cooperates next week for my first outdoor sessions of the season!

I am so looking forward to beautiful beach days with these two.  Definitely our HAPPY PLACE.


Summer Sessions

I don’t want to jinx us, but it is FINALLY starting to feel a little bit like Spring.  I can almost imagine being able to shoot outdoors again.  Almost.

Despite cutting way, way back on the number of sessions I am taking on this year (and I am so proud of myself for sticking to my resolve to do that!)…I’ve been as busy as ever.  I am beyond blessed to spend my days chasing around my super-active, ADORABLE, lovable little guy — who just turned 2 (how did that happen so quickly?).  Making the decision to slow down my work pace to allow me to soak in every moment with him was definitely the right one for me and my family.

So many babies in the studio these days, which I just absolutely ♥LOVE♥.  The Pure Baby Sessions have been so much fun, and the openings fill quickly.  I do have one more spot available for May 4th — send an email to if you are interested!

If you have your heart set on an outdoor summer session, now is the time to reserve it.  I am only doing four sessions per month through September!  More than half of those spots are already spoken for.


Now booking Pure Baby Sessions!

My favorite images are always the simplest when it comes to newborns and babies.  These sessions will be styled by yours truly, using neutral knit clothing and accessories.  It’s all about your baby — no fussy outfits or distracting backdrops.  Pure & natural portraits of your little one.

I was wondering if you have any sessions booked for your next pure baby session in April? My son will be 12 months old April 16th so I am looking to have them done sometime on the next month. He is not walking yet.
