WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU TO HOLD A SPOT?
As soon as possible! I can never guarantee a slot when we are booked, in short, my studio only books 5-8 sessions a month. Booking such low volume gives me the time I need to be able to give my clients 100% of my attention, there is so much more than just taking beautiful portraits that go into the business. I typically recommend to book your maternity and newborn when you are in your second trimester.
MY BABY IS ALREADY A FEW WEEKS/MONTHS OLD, CAN WE STILL DO A NEWBORN SESSION?
Yes! We take baby’s of all ages. However, once they are over the 21 day mark they will be less curly and like their legs straight, be less sleepy, more sensitive to touch, so we most likely will not get the same poses you see here on our website. We will however get you some gorgeous images that you’ll cherish forever. Once they hit the two month mark we advise not coming until they’re 4 months so we can get some smiles and other milestones.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Just show up! At my studio we provide everything you need, we have organic baby diapers, organic wipes, drinks, snacks, boppy pillow, and a comfy couch for you to rest on! An added bonus since my studio is located on our property, we have a mini farm for your kids to enjoy!
The only thing you will ever bring is something that you would like photographed with baby (which we will discuss in the pre-consultation). I provide maternity gowns, all newborn props, and sitter-one year clothing!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SESSION?
72 hours after your session you will receive a soft proof online gallery. Soft proof is simple light edits done (making sure lighting and color is perfect), but baby skin will not be 100% edited yet. This ensures quick delivery on both part. You will pick your images that come with your session and those will be the ones that I fully edit. Beyond that, any additional images you select will also be edited fully! All images that are however not selected or purchased will be deleted. Once everything is finished, within 10 days you should have your downloads ready, and any prints to your doorstep! Things such as Albums, Canvas, and Framed product do however take longer!
WHY SHOULD I ORDER PRINTS AND PRODUCTS FROM YOU AND NOT FROM WALMART, COSTCO OR SHUTTERFLY?
I use the top and most world renowned print labs in the U.S. The color and quality of the products will match your photo exactly how it was taken and will hold up over time and for generations of your family to see. Digital photos will end up in a desk and never looked at, while having a nice piece of wall art for years to enjoy in your home will bring you happiness as you watch your children grow. Plus, we will do all the work for you! How many times have you said “I’ll get to ordering that next week” and then never do? We are a full service photography studio and will edit, design, crop to ratio appropriately (i.e. 8×10), order, package and deliver everything to you! We also know that this is a digital age and offer the corresponding digital for each product you decide to purchase for sharing on social media platforms.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AND HOW DOES ORDERING WORK?
When you are ready to book your session we do require a half down non-refundable deposit that will come off of your session fee. You DO have the option of paying in full, however all sitting fees are non-refundable.
First and foremost, you will never be blind sided on your investment going in. You will fully know what comes with your session and what is available for after add on purchases. Most clients do typically invest $500-$1500 on professional photography.
You can simply select any images on our fully function online gallery. You will have links to birth announcement templates and all our wall art options! Ordering is easy peasy!
