A: It is best to reserve your newborn session at the beginning of your 3rd trimester to ensure availability for your baby when he / she arrives. This also gives me time to prepare for your professional custom session. To reserve your due date the non-refundable session fee of $200 is due before confirming and placing you on my calendar.
Date can be changed if notified withing 72 hours. No shows or cancellation day of your photography session; your session fee will not be refunded.
When you book and reserve your photo session, your due date will be added to my calendar as a tentative session date. I know babies come only when they are ready; either early or late. I will be ready and prepared for your session, and eagerly await your big announcement. I ask that clients contact me within 3 days of your babies arrival to schedule the session. Newborn sessions are typically held within a 5-14 day time frame after the baby's birth. This way we can get those sleepy, flexible poses. Also it is best to do early in the morning.
A: The best time for you to schedule your cake smash session is when your baby is 10-11 months old. Sooner is always better to ensure date is available. This allows plenty of time to get your gallery edited, order product, and get your printed product and digital purchases back by baby’s birthday! Parents like to use these custom portraits for their invitations, baby’s birthday party, or to share on social media the day of their baby’s birthday. Book cake smash sessions early because they fill up fast, as this will ensure a spot! In addition, booking early gives you time to pick out backdrop, clothing, props, etc. Cakes often need a months notice , so don't forget to order cake. I can also recommend a cake vendor if needed.
A: You can choose your theme according to what I have on-hand. However, special requests are welcome; if able to purchase requested items ahead of time, and if reasonably priced, you just pay shipping.. But I do have a large assortment of blankets, props, crochet bonnets, outfits, and much much more. We will have your session consultation prior to the shoot where you can choose colors, props, decorations, and discuss the style you would like for your session! I work very close with each and every one of my clients in order to develop a plan and customize the photography session that meets and / or exceeds expectations!
A: Your babies everyday essentials are all you need to bring to your session as I will provide everything else! I have plenty of props for you to choose from and you can use outfits I have. I offer a complete service and would be happy to provide a wardrobe for your photography session, but I understand some parents prefer to choose clothing themselves so you can bring outfits of your choice from home. If you have a special item you would like to incorporate, I would love for you to bring it along. Just let me know during your consultation. I will get their size and provide a wardrobe that looks and photographs beautifully with your chosen theme/colors.
