NEWBORN SESSIONS

Please book your session while you are still pregnant, preferably a few months before your due date! This ensures my availability and adequate time to order any additional props and accessories. 

Newborn sessions take place between 3 & 10 days of age. The first week of life is when they are the most sleepy and bendable. 

Most newborn sessions are in my home studio and last between 2-4 hours depending on your baby.  It’s warm, quite and comfy for baby and parents.  I’m also available for in home newborn sessions at an additional cost. 

I provide headbands, hats and accessories for newborns, but please feel free to bring your own accessories or special props you’d like included.

Babies are naked during the session, so please bring them in an outfit that’s easily removable like a onesie or layette.  

Your session includes images of baby and parents. Parents don’t have to be in the photos if you don’t want.  There’s a $50 fee for each additional person such as siblings or grandparents.  If you are bringing siblings, please bring snacks and things to keep them quiet and occupied during the session.  

You will receive your images on a USB drive within 2-4 weeks after your session date.  I will post a sneak peek on my blog and Facebook within 1 week, and will tag you in the post if you provide your Facebook information. Please DON’T ATLTER OR CROP MY IMAGES IN ANY WAY!

What to bring

  • Diapers and wipes
  • Pacifier 
  • Any soothing objects baby likes
  • Blanket
  • Bottles or anything you need for nursing…a full baby tummy, makes a happy baby, which equals good photos!! 
  •  A black shirt (tank,tee or long-sleeves) for mom and dad

PORTRAIT & FAMILY SESSIONS

The look and styling of any session is important. Keeping it simple and clean is always best!

Avoid loud patterns, they can be distracting. Families don’t need to “match”.  Pick clothes that represent your style and work well together.  I’m happy to help with styling and options.

Feel free to bring any props, outfits or special items you’d like included in your session.

You will receive your images on a USB drive within 2-4 weeks after your session date.  I will post a sneak peek on my blog and Facebook within 1 week, and will tag you in the post if you provide your Facebook information. Please DON’T ATLTER OR CROP MY IMAGES IN ANY WAY!

MATERNITY SESSIONS

Please schedule maternity sessions when you are between 7 & 8 months along. 

Locations vary depending on the style you prefer. Nude & more personal sessions work best in your home or a private location.  All other sessions can be done anywhere (Beach, park, desert, fields etc.) We will discuss styling and accessories before your session. 

BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY 

I know this is a very personal and exciting experience and I will fully respect your wishes and boundaries.   We will have a 30 minute meeting 6 weeks before your due date discussing your expectations and needs.

I like to arrive when you are in active labor, around 6cm and will stay for around an hour after the baby arrives. I will stay for as long as necessary.  I’ve had 2 babies myself, both very different labors! I understand labor and birth doesn’t always go according to plan & can be very unpredictable.  I will always come prepared to stay as long as necessary. 

I’m happy to photograph a c-section, but you must get approval from your doctor beforehand.  All hospitals have different rules regarding c-sections.  Please check with you doctor ahead of time, in case one is needed.

Please book ASAP!! Birth photography involves a lot of unpredictable time frames that I need to be on call for.  I can only book so may at once so that I’m sure to be available for you! 

A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking with the remaining 50% due after birth but before the delivery of your images.

I do not use a flash. My camera can handle most low lights situations.  If a flash is absolutely necessary, I will ask you before I use it. I want you to labor naturally, as if I wasn’t there. I try and stay out of the way and give you your space.  

You will receive a minimum of 75 high-resolution, fully-edited images from your birth.  Most will be shown in black and white.

You will receive your images on a USB drive within 3-4 weeks after your session.  

CHILDREN SESSIONS

The best age to photograph babies is 6-8 months old, when they can sit up.  This is a fun age with lots of smiles & personality. These sessions can be in my studio, outdoors or in your home.

One year old sessions are also fun.  I prefer to do them out doors, since baby is usually very mobile.  Smash the cake and balloons are all fun options for one year old sessions.

What to bring?

  • A few outfits, hats, headbands and accessories or special items you’d like included
  • Snacks and drinks, nothing too messy please
  • Toys or any special attachment items
  • Cake or cupcake for one year old sessions   

ADDITIONAL INFO

A $100 non-refundable retainer is due at time of booking for all sessions.  Balance is due before images are delivered. 

I am available to travel at additional costs, please contact me for more information.
