QUESTION

How long is a newborn session?

ANSWER

A full newborn portrait session can take anywhere from 2-4 hours. Your new little baby will need time to settle in their sleep, cuddle, or eat. This all takes time and a lot of patience. Your little one will direct our session together, and I will follow the baby's cues, taking breaks as needed. I allow for this time to ensure we can capture as many of your images as we can, of your baby peaceful and content, whether awake or asleep.

QUESTION

What is the difference between an "All Inclusive" and "Custom" session?

ANSWER

With a custom session at my studio, your setup options and poses are unlimited. You and I will have an in-depth discussion to plan your session and get an idea of the types of images you love, and design your session around your vision. This is all included as part of your session fee! You also get to view your images BEFORE investing in them. My job is to fill your gallery with unique, and beautiful imagery, that you cannot resist, while still telling your little one's story.

With an all-inclusive session, you will usually commit to, and pay for a set number of images before you have even had your session. You have no input on the images taken or chosen for your gallery, often leaving you with a gallery of multiple images, that is in reality only made up of a few or so poses/setups.

QUESTION

How many poses & setups are included?

ANSWER

There is no limit on the number of poses or setups for your baby's session, nor is there a limit on the number of images captured for, or shown in your gallery. A Newborn gallery can show anywhere from 30-60 images. All of that said, your baby is the one calling the shots on the day of their session, and we do what the baby will let us do.

QUESTION

Who chooses the images I get to keep?

ANSWER

YOU CHOOSE! I design your session based on your vision, I put together your proofing gallery using all of the best images from your session, from each of the sets and outfits and poses we did, and YOU get to hand-select the images that will make up your final gallery. If you want the entire gallery, that is an option that is available to you!

QUESTION

Do we get digitals?

ANSWER

YES! Not only does all artwork chosen come with a complimentary corresponding digital file, you also have the option to order digital files ONLY.

QUESTION

Is it extra to add my partner or children?

ANSWER

NO! There is absolutely NO extra cost to include any immediate family members.

QUESTION

How do we pick a date when we don't know what day the baby will be born?

ANSWER

We reserve your DUE date in my calendar and then schedule your actual session after the baby arrives. I just ask that you let me know of the baby's arrival within 48 hours of delivery so that we can book your actual session date! All sessions are booked on weekdays at 10:30 am.

QUESTION

How soon after the baby is born should we come in?

ANSWER

Newborn sessions are best done in the first 3 weeks after birth, but please don't panic about this timeline if the baby requires an unexpected stay in the NICU. Whatever your circumstances we will work around them. It is however best to not delay if we don't have to.

QUESTION

Do I need to bring any props or outfits for the baby?

ANSWER

No! You just have to bring yourself and the baby, and prepare to sit back and relax!! I have a beautiful studio, stocked with amazing props and accessories; access to all accessories, rompers, and props is included in your session. You do not need to bring anything, however, you are welcome to incorporate anything that has sentimental value to you or your family.
