When should I schedule my newborn session?
In order to get many of the posed sleeping newborn images like you see on our website, it's ideal to have your baby photographed within 5-10 days of birth. Due to the unpredictable timing of birth and the amount of time we spend on each of our clients (before, during and after the session), we limit the number of newborns on our schedule. To ensure they have a spot reserved for them, most of our clients book the newborn session in their 7th or 8th month of pregnancy using their due date as a guide. Once the baby is born, we will move your appointment date accordingly.
When should I schedule my maternity session?
Maternity sessions are best done 4 to 8 weeks before your due date. Many of our clients order a "My Wish for You" book to be used at baby showers and for visitors to sign when they come to see the baby. These are books created for friends and family to write in, to express their baby advice, blessings, and wishes for you and your family. The books are designed with your favorite images from your maternity session.
What should we wear?
We will cover wardrobe options, as well as how to best prepare for your upcoming session, during the pre-session consultation appointment. You do not need to bring an outfit for the baby. We have an extensive supply of newborn hats, wraps, blankets, and props that we will use to style your images.
Do you offer more than just digital files?
Yes! We specialize in archival albums and framed wall portraits. We help you through the decision making process as you select which images to display in your home and how you would like to view them. You will be guided through each stage of the process step by step to make things as simple as possible. Digital files are also available.
How much does a newborn session cost?
The Newborn Session Fee includes a pre-session consultation, the newborn session, custom hand editing of your images, and an appointment to view and select your final images. Prints, products and digital images are purchased separately. Our studio focuses on creating beautiful images for you to display in your home with archival albums and framed wall prints. We spend a significant amount of time on your custom session from planning to photography to professional retouching, and then provide you with the highest quality images possible. When you leave our studio, you leave refreshed and reassured with a feeling of accomplishment knowing that art pieces were created representing your family and your style.

We will help you with all of your final decisions on images and products and show you items that we have custom designed just for you. We even have the latest technology to show you what your images will look like right on your wall!
