Frequently Asked Questions

Where are my photos taken?

Photos are taken in studio or in the comfort of your own home.

What do I need to bring to a session?

For the baby, bring bottles, if you are bottle feeding), diapers, wipes, and a pacifier. Props, wraps, and outfits are provided. If you do have any family heirlooms that you want to include in the photograph, please bring those.

For other kids, bring snacks, and something to keep them occupied (books, small toys, etc.) a change of clothes.

When are newborn sessions scheduled?

Newborn sessions are scheduled weekday mornings when your baby is 5 – 14 days old. There are a couple of reason for this scheduling. During this time newborns are sleepy and comfortable curling up in cute positions. Babies up to a month old can still be photographed; however, they tend to be more alert and active. Newborn sessions last approximately 2 – 2 1/2 hours. A limited number of sessions are booked each month, so it is recommended to schedule as soon as possible. It’s never too early.

How far in advance should I book my session?

It’s never too early to book a session. Typically moms book during their second trimester. We will try our best to accommodate last minute sessions after baby has arrived.

Does the session fee include sibling/family pictures?

Of course ! Immediate family (siblings/parents) can be included. Extended family is not included in the session.
