When should I book my maternity session?
My suggestion is to book between 6-8 months. This way you're definitely showing, but not too uncomfortable. However, do not wait until the last minute to do it, I want to make sure I have plenty of time to get you in.
How do we schedule the newborn session?
Book while you are still pregnant. Again, I want to make sure I have lots of time to schedule you in. From there, I will put your due date on the calendar and keep my schedule fairly clear. When the baby is born, contact me as soon as possible. I like to shoot within 1-2 weeks of birth because baby will still have that sweet little curve in their bottom that we all love. They will also sleep a lot and give us best cooperation. 5 days is ideal but I understand that this time frame doesn't work for everyone.
How will the newborn session work?
I will come to your home and capture your life as it is. I want to capture you loving and enjoying your new addition to the family. I do not do the super posed and unnatural shots with the baby. I will, of course, capture baby by themselves but I will not be putting them in uncomfortable and crazy poses.
Where do we have the sessions?
Anywhere the natural light takes us. Since I am a natural light photographer, I do not use a studio. We can hold the session outdoors or in your home where everyone is comfortable and relaxed. You don't even have to wear shoes if you don't want to.
How long does it take to get my pictures?
During the summer it can take up to 3 weeks, but most likely sooner. A lot of times I will put some fun previews on my blog and Facebook page.
What do I wear?
Whatever you want. I want your photos to really reflect who you are, so wear something that represents you. Contact me if you would like some ideas on what may
or may not look good.
Fun and bright clothing is always cute on children. Hats, umbrellas, boots and other fun accessories always add a nice little touch.
Session & Package Details
I love to create moments. The session will be fun and relaxed. Not the typical session in a stuffy studio. It will be comfortable.
The packages are quite simple because they aren't really packages but more of a foundation to build your session that suits your needs.
