When should I book my session?

Maternity sessions are usually done anywhere between 28 to 34 weeks but the best time will vary with each mom to be. Some moms to be may grow a little faster and want them done sooner rather than later while other moms to be may carry small or gain weight at a slower pace and wish to wait a little bit longer until their belly is really round. Ultimately, your session should occur when you’re feeling you’re most comfortable and show off your nice round belly.

I love lifestyle newborn sessions where the focus is the interaction between you and your newborn and surroundings, such as your newborn’s nursery, favorite books or toys or a closet full of cute tiny baby clothes and shoes. But I also love those posed sleepy shots. For this reason I recommend scheduling your newborn session within the first 10 days so we can obtain the best of both worlds. Please contact me a few months before your due date so I can pencil you in on my calendar. Once the baby is born we will finalize your session date.

Please contact me 3-4 weeks before your desired date for all other portrait sessions (child, family, seniors).

Where do sessions take place?

I want you to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible during your session. Newborn sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home or at my in-home studio. All other sessions are at the location of your choice. After your session is booked we’ll schedule your pre-session consultation where I’ll ask questions to find out about your family’s likes, favorite activities and places to visit. This will lead us to the perfect location for your custom photography session.

How long will it take to receive my images?

I realize that most families are anxious to see their pictures so after our shoot we’ll schedule a time for me to come to your home for the “Reveal Night”. After viewing your slideshow of images I’ll help you figure out which products and prints to order, what sizes and where to hang in your home.

How many images will I receive?

You will be presented with 20 – 25 handcrafted proofs at your Reveal Night.
