when should I schedule my session?
As soon as possible! Before your baby is born! I take a very limited number of sessions per month so it is imperative that you book your session at your earliest convenience. It is ideal to capture your newborn within the first two weeks of life. By the time baby is born there are so many things on your sleep deprived mind that having it booked early is paramount.
what if my baby is born early or late?
We “soft book” around your due date to allow for this. As soon as baby is born you can contact me or I will contact you within the week of your due date to check in and get our session day finalized.
is there anything I need to do to prepare for my session?
About a week before your session I will send you information on tips and tricks to ensure a smooth session. Don’t worry! I’ve done this a few times and I can walk you through a few simple steps to make this experience an enjoyable one. The last thing a new mama needs is more stress!
I’m a little nervous about bringing baby out into public.
I take every precaution to make sure my studio space is as germ free and as inviting as possible. All of my blankets and wraps are washed and sanitized between every session. No matter what. Having had experience with the NICU, I know how important a germ free environment is to these tiny newborns. Chances are by the time a week rolls around you will have a little case of “cabin fever” and will welcome the chance for a little outing!
do you offer digital files?
I am a print artist. My focus is in printed artwork for your home. No one wants their memories to live on a hard drive. And let’s face it, getting pictures printed is the thing that gets forgotten about. With your entire world changing and evolving with a new life to take care of the last thing you need is another item on your “to do” list. Allow me to help you create artwork that will be created right away but done with hardly any effort. All you have to do is pick your favorites!
do you include mom, dad or siblings in any photos?
This is totally up to you! I am happy to include family members in a few photos. If you prefer not to be in the photos you don’t have to be! We will create an session uniquely designed to suit your family.
do I need to bring anything?
I have everything I need to get a perfect set of pictures with your little one. Just bring your baby! If there is a special heirloom blanket or other item you want incorporated in your photos we can certainly plan that in advance during our styling consultation! I will take that into consideration as I design your custom set ups.
