Preparing for your session can sometimes be a little hectic, especially if you don't know where to begin. When my clients book a session with me, I make sure they are taken care of and know all of the details beforehand. The last thing you need when booking your session is added stress about your session. Below are a few of my most frequently asked questions.
Q: WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?
A: As soon as possible! I only book a limited number of sessions each month to ensure my clients are receiving my personal attention and the high quality portraits they expect. To ensure your desired session time, contact me when you are ready to book a session.
Q: MY BABY IS ALREADY BORN, IS IT TOO LATE TO BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?
A: Absolutely not! While I may be booked out a few months in advance, my schedule is prone to last minute availability due to the nature of babies arriving on their own time. Additionally, while I recommend that newborn sessions take place before 2 weeks, I am happy to photograph your baby at 4-5 weeks old with the understanding that it may not be possible to achieve the type of images you see with younger newborns.
Q: WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
A: All newborn/studio sessions take place in my in-home studio. I do offer my clients the option to have their session in the comfort of their own home for an additional travel/setup fee.
Q: HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?
A: Your newborn session can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. We will take as many 'breaks' as needed for your baby to nurse, change their diaper, and/or extra snuggles.
Q: ARE FAMILY PHOTOS INCLUDED IN MY NEWBORN SESSION?
A: Yes! All of my sessions are completely tailored to my clients individual needs. If you'd like Mom, Dad, and siblings (yes, fur babies are siblings too!) included in your session, we can definitely accommodate that at no additional charge.
Q: WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
A: I've created a guide to advise my clients on what they should and should not wear for their portrait session. I am also happy to help my clients with outfit choices to ensure they are looking and feeling their best for their portrait session!
Q: WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PORTRAITS?
A: I get just as excited as my clients for them to see their images! I will have your images prepared for your portrait reveal session no more than 2 weeks after your session date. You will be invited back to my studio for a low-key night out away from the kids, or we can meet in the comfort of your own home. Be prepared with extra boxes of tissues!
Q: HOW DO I BOOK?!
