What is newborn pre-booking?
babies arrive when they want to, but there is no need to worry! i take a limited number of newborns each month, so there is no overbooking. when you contact me, i will pre-book you for the month you're due. when your newborn arrives please contact me via email and we will schedule a day and time for you to come in for baby's first photos!
Are family photos included in newborn sessions?
you can add on a family package to any session for an additional $50
Do you provide the newborn outfits and wraps?
yes, i provide everything for my newborn sessions. my client closet is growing and i will soon have outfits for older babies, as well. please bring what is special to you and we can try to incorporate your items.
What if my baby (GASP!) doesn't sleep?
i only schedule one newborn per day, so the focus is on you and your newborn. clients find my home studio to be a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of time to feed & soothe newborns. there is no rush and zero pressure! my goal is to make sure you have an amazing experience and receive beautiful memories to last a lifetime. if baby is awake, but content, we will proceed with the session and begin taking beautiful photos for you to cherish.
Will i receive digital images from my session?
all sessions (with the exception of mini sessions) come with up to 20 digital images. additional images may be purchased for $10/image. you will receive your own personal online link to a downloadable, shareable gallery. i do not store images indefinitely, so be sure to download your images before the gallery expires in 6 weeks.
