These are the questions I get asked most often. If your question isn’t answered here please feel free to contact me anytime through the contact page.
Maternity – This is different for each and every client. The point of your maternity shoot is to bring emphasis on ‘the bump’, so the bigger the better! That being said, you should do the maternity shoot when you are still feeling comfortable in your skin. Most shoots are done at around 32 – 34 weeks, but we can do it as early or as late as you like!
Newborn – Best done in the first 5- 14 days, to capture the newness, and all of your baby’s precious little features. The perfect, ears, toes and fingers in all their glory, which baby is still nice and sleepy and easy to maneuver into all those cute little positions.
Maternity - I always suggest you bring 2 or 3 little outfits that you cannot wait to dress your little bundle in. Also some little shoes/ booties, and any unique little items that you’ve already invested in. Bring some toys/ books/ anything that you may have in your nursery that you really love, and if you don’t know if it’s pink or blue, bring both!
Newborn - I have tons of hats, hair accessories, cute little pants, wraps, baskets, and other props for your session. I try to make it to where you don’t have to bring anything but your baby and milk! I have all you will need for your session, unless you would like to bring in something special.
Outdoor baby /family – None really. Occasionally I will bring a blanket, stool or basket, but aside from that I like to keep my sessions free of props. If you choose to bring a prop or two, I would recommend a small family heirloom or item of emotional significance.
Maternity/Family – I usually like having the sessions either early in the morning, or late afternoon. Times will depend on the season.
Newborn – For Newborn Shoots, it will depend on your feeding times, sleeping times, and all that good stuff. This is why I say 5-14 days after your little one is born, as by then you would’ve worked out a bit of a routine, and will be able to tell me what time will work best for YOU.
I try and offer family mini sessions once per year, typically a day in October or November, when the fall colors are beautiful and just in time for Christmas cards. There are a limited number of sessions available and they book up quickly.
I do not provide my client with unedited images, as this does not depict an accurate product of my business and is not a part of my session packages.
Yes! I offer prints, beautiful heirloom quality albums and canvases, custom designed invitation/greeting/announcement cards, accordion books and more!
