Frequently Asked Questions

How soon in advance should I book my session?

For Birth Photography, Newborn & Fresh 48 sessions- I only take 1-2 a month, so I recommend booking several months before your due date.

For family & portrait sessions, I recommend booking at least a month in advance.

When is the session fee due? What does it include?

It is due at the time of booking. It will reserve your session appointment, and covers my time, talent and select number of digital files or print credit.

I accept cash, check, credit/debit & Paypal.

What should we wear?

This is the most frequently asked question, but I don’t always have the same answer! It highly depends on the feel that you want for your session, as well as the location and time of year you will be photographed. Do you want to keep it casual? Or do you want to have a more formal feel?

I highly recommend that the women wear a dress or skirt, paired with dressier shoes. If you feel great, you are going to look great!

A few guidelines to consider would be to avoid matching everyone the same, as well as avoiding patterns, stripes that are extremely busy. Wearing make-up and dressing up just a little more than normal will always look great! Accessorize with jewelry, scarves, boots & jackets. I am happy to provide a more customized answer for your family during your initial consultation.

For newborn sessions/Fresh 48– The trend is light and white, so I recommend something that flows well and is comfortable. Take extra care to choose something that makes you feel lovely!

How long will our session last?

Families of 2-5, plan on 45-60 minutes. For families with 8+, it may take up to two hours.

Maternity, Senior & Portrait sessions take about an hour, depending on location choices and outfit changes.

Newborn sessions may last anywhere from 2-4 hours to allow adequate time for cuddling and feeding. I do not put a cap on these sessions to ensure that everyone has a relaxed and enjoyable time.

When do we get to see our pictures?

After your session I will begin sorting and editing your images. I will select the very best to be showcased on your gallery. You can expect to see them within two weeks. From there you will be able to select your favorites, share with family and purchase prints or digital files.

How will I receive my digital files?

Once you have selected your favorite photos, I will finalize them and re-upload the final photos to your gallery. I will email you a PIN that will allow you to download the photos directly to your computer.

Do you offer photo printing or other products?

Yes! I highly recommend ordering through your gallery to receive the highest quality prints and products from my favorite professional lab. My computer screens are calibrated to match the specifications from this lab, which means that all that time I spent editing and making sure the colors are just right will actually print that way! If you choose to print at another lab, your print quality and coloring will vary.

I offer a large selection of custom designed books, albums, metal prints, canvas, photo gifts, birth announcements, holiday cards and more! Most of these are available to purchase through you gallery, but please email me if you have more questions!

Have another question?

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions that you need answered. I look forward to working with you!
