Do your sessions include a disc of images?

Yes, all of our sessions include a plentiful number of digital images!

When should I schedule my maternity session?

We recommend doing maternity sessions when you are 32 to 35 weeks pregnant.

May I include my spouse and younger children in our sessions?

Yes!  We encourage a few shots with each especially at maternity and newborn sessions!

When should I schedule my newborn session?

We will note your due date on our calendar and when the baby arrives, we will schedule the newborn session. If you have a scheduled C-Section, we can pencil in a date beforehand.  Regardless, we recommend doing the newborn photos when the baby is between 5 and 12 days old.  After that, the baby gets stronger and is more apt to stretch a lot and not be quite as sleepy and moldable.

What do I need for my newborn session?

We will talk to you more before the newborn session about ideas but we love incorporating things that are special to you such as grandmother's pearls and Dad's football, a blanket made for the baby, and more!  BUT you don't have to bring anything except the baby, we have lots of options as well!

What can I expect at the newborn session?

These sessions typically last up to two hours or so depending on the mood of the baby.  While we recommend that the baby come with a full belly so he/she is happy and sleepy, all of which we'll discuss beforehand, it is very common for you to need to feed the baby a little during the session so don't stress over that!  

Where will we do the newborn and other sessions?  

We can do the newborn session at our studio where we have lots of blankets, bowls, baskets, wraps and headbands!  We can also do the session at your home if you are more comfortable and we will discuss with you what we can bring with us as far as color choices, etc...  All other sessions can be done at our studio, your home, or outside if weather and age of the baby is ideal for such! We will discuss that with each session.

How do I pay for our sessions?

We just require a $100 deposit before or at your very first session.  We will discuss remaining payment options with you as we want this to work for you! We do have increments that will need to be paid with each session prior to your receiving your images but we will go over that with you as we go along. No surprises!
