Does pricing include all the photos – I’d hate to have to only pick a few?
Yes! All final edited photos are yours to keep.
Do you come to people’s homes or do you have a studio?
For newborn sessions I come to your home. It’s more comfortable for you and the baby and makes for a more personal experience.
For family sessions I recommend going to a pretty park – the light is nicer and the kids can run around and be themselves. If you’re not sure where to go I can help you figure it out!
How long do sessions last?
Newborn sessions vary in time – up to 2.5 hours. It really depends on the baby. Sometimes we have to take more breaks for diaper changes, feedings, cuddling and sometimes the baby sleeps right through 🙂
All other sessions last about an hour – this is usually the point where your kids are over it (you know that moment when you can see that they’re done? That’s when it’s over)
Do newborn sessions include parents?
It’s up to you! Some parents have wanted the focus to solely be on their new baby and others want to be in pictures.
Do you come with props/outfits for newborn sessions?
I have blankets, some hats, headbands, and a few wraps that I bring. If you have anything special you’d like to use that’s cool too.
Since the sessions are in home and not in a studio I don’t go overboard with the baskets or signs. My sessions focus more on the baby than on the props.
Is there a watermark/logo on my pics?
No! They’re all high resolution with no markings on them, ready for you to print.
Are all the photos edited?
Every photo I deliver to you is edited for exposure, color, and cropping. You can expect your photos to look just like the ones on my blog.
Can we make picture requests?
Of course! If there’s something specific you want, just talk to me about it.
Can we purchase prints or albums?
Yes – I send you a personal website with your photos from which you can order prints and pre-designed albums are available starting at $500.
When do we get our photos?
Photos are delivered within two weeks.
How far in advance can we book our session?
Family sessions can be booked at any time – you can even book last minute for later in the week. If I have availability I’d be happy to photograph your family at any time.
Newborn sessions are booked around the due date. We can’t really set a concrete date since you don’t know 100% when the baby will arrive. That being said, since you’re home and flexibly with timing, it’s really easy to book.
When are newborns photographed?
Newborn sessions must be photographed within the first two weeks of the baby’s arrival.
Can we bring our dog to the photo session?
Yes please—bring all the dogs you know—and then let’s schedule extra time so that I can give them all hugs!
