A TYPICAL SESSION

The typical session lasts about 1-2 hours. For a typical newborn shoot, it’s also about 1-2 hours (as long as all directions are followed) but I will stay until we get the shots depending on babies feeding, and cooperation. The session fee minus the deposit is due at the time of the session by either cash, or check. I shoot on location in the mornings, afternoons (studio only) and evenings. I only book 3-5 sessions a week so my dates/times go fast! If you’d like a specific date/time I recommend booking as early as you can.

WHAT TO EXPECT

What you can expect is not posed photographs for the family but more lifestyle. Just picture me spending the day with you and your family having a good time. I might move a piece of hair, ask you to do something silly, or move an arm or leg but that’s about it. My goal is to capture you and your family at it’s most natural state. I love all smiles, pouts and crying.

After you contact me, I’ll be emailing you to get more information, to get to know you and your family better and to find out what you’re looking for with a few quick questions so that I can best fulfill your needs.

If we’re doing a newborn shoot, I’ll be supplying my props, wraps, and baskets to take pictures of your newborn (unless there is something specific you’d like to add to it ie. grandma’s quilt, mom’s old stuffed animal, paraphernalia sports or hobby related.)  If I come to your home for the session, having a clean and uncluttered home will make for better pictures and a home with a lot of natural light. I also love to take pictures of babies’ new surroundings. ie. the nursery and/or master bedroom.

WHAT TO WEAR

I tell all my clients to just think about what they’d like to see on their walls. You’re welcome to wear anything you’d like! I will definitely assist if you want something different or if you have a certain style that you are wanting to achieve. My personal favorite are simple solid whites, neutrals and grays. We can talk about it more here.

WHAT YOU GET

Each session includes my time, talent, and professionally edited images, and file preparation. All photo sessions are done in studio, on-location using natural light in an outdoor setting or within your home. Final photos can take up to 2-3 weeks to be completed.

It really depends on what type of session you’d like or what you’d like to display on your walls.

I often share a sneak peak for the family on Facebook or Instagram within 48 hours of the session. Please let me know ahead of time if you’d like me to not share. When posting pictures online, I may share your last name and some small details. You are welcome and encouraged to tag and share these photos.

Please contact me if you have anymore questions!
