Once your newborn arrives we can be sure to schedule baby within the first two weeks after birth while they’re still sleepy for those curly womblike poses. Families are asked to email the photographer within the first 72 hours of your newborn arriving. Sessions are booked in advance, occasionally there are last minute openings.
How do I reserve my session?
A non-refundable session fee is required to secure all sessions, this fee covers time with a license and insured photographer, full access to entire prop collection and creative post processing. I fully understand that parents can be very busy. So I have created online ordering. Digital Collection are chosen in your own time in an online gallery. Wall art are chosen at the in person ordering appointment a few weeks after the session depending on the season and if the family requests this appointment.

-A typical newborn sessions takes 2-3 hours to accommodate feedings, diaper changes and transitioning between poses.
-A typical maternity session takes 30 minutes -1.5 hours to accommodate dress changes, fussy siblings, and transitioning poses.
Do I need to bring anything to a newborn session?
Just the essentials in the diaper bag! Everything needed for a newborn session including all photography props are available in studio. You do not need to bring additional items unless you have something sentimental like a family heirloom that holds important meaning. Most store purchased items are too large for newborns and not used at our session. The studio is stocked with handmade custom sized props to use during your session.
