Sessions are by appointment. This ensures that your sessions occur promptly and at a time that best suits your child’s / family schedule. Your session can be done in studio or on location. There is no additional fee for an event within a 20 mile radius of our studio. Call for more information about our on location shoots or to have a special event photographed.
The session fee is due at the time of your session and is nonrefundable. Please give a 24-hour advance notice if you need to reschedule.
The ideal time to capture those New baby poses is within the first two weeks after birth. As I know firsthand, this time can go by fast and can be hectic. The first two weeks however are when the baby remains curled up and still has that “newness” look, allowing us to capture and preserve those special moments. To get the best results possible, try to keep your baby up for 30-60 minutes before your appointment and have him/her fed. If your baby has a full belly and is tired it will help to keep them asleep and calm for their pictures. Please feel free to bring any special items you would like in the photos such as a blanket, stuffed toy, special outfit or accessory, etc… This is also a great moment to get a few photos with your new baby, so mom and dad should also come prepared to be in a few photos. Please wear light or black shirts.
For maternity sessions we suggest having the session take place 1 ½ – 2 months before your due date. Bellies are usually just the right size for capturing this special time at this point. Please bring a few different outfits to change into. We recommend wearing pre-pregnancy clothing. Pregnant women have beautiful curves and we want to show that off bring jeans that will have a snug fit (we will not zip or button them). We also recommend bringing any pretty, lacy, modern, or funky tops like camisoles, tanks, lingerie, sweaters, strapless bra for under any wraps, etc. Long skirts that will sit below the belly are a nice alternative to jeans along with fun dresses. If you have any accessories to bring out your personality and really make the photos “your own” bring those as well, along with any scarves or wraps you might have. Our goal is to make the session unique to you even in the studio.
Depending on your child’s personality and style, they can either wear solid colors and accent with other pieces or put together a fun outfit. Bring a few different options. We find that jeans work very well and can be dressed up or dressed down.
