Maternity & Newborn Portrait Questions
DO YOU OFFER MATERNITY SESSIONS?
You bet! You can purchase a maternity portrait session separately but I also offer a Maternity + Newborn Session bundle if you decide to go that route.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY OR NEWBORN SESSION?
Maternity photos are best taken around the 30 week mark. At this point you’ll be noticeably pregnant but still able to pose comfortably. Newborn sessions work best when the baby is under two weeks old as babies are still very sleepy at this point and usually don’t mind being posed. I would suggest reaching out to schedule at least a month before you anticipate the session taking place. This gives me the time that I need to prepare for your session and gives us some wiggle room if your baby comes early!
WHERE WILL MY NEWBORN SESSION TAKE PLACE?
All of my newborn sessions are done in-home. I bring all of my props and equipment to you so that you can just relax and enjoy the process. I will need some space to work and as much natural light as I can get. If you’re interested in any lifestyle newborn portraits please prepare any rooms you would like to include (usually the nursery and/or bedroom).
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO GET MY BABY READY FOR HIS/HER SESSION?
Sleepy babies and full babies are the easiest to photograph. Try to keep your baby up for 45 minutes leading up to the session and feed your baby at the start of your scheduled session time. It will take me some time to get my props unloaded and set up, by the time I’m ready the baby usually is too!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO GET MY PHOTOS?
Two weeks following your session I will mail out a custom USB drive will all of your final images. During the two weeks that it takes for me to edit your images I will be posting sneak peeks on social media!
DO YOU SELL PRINTS & OTHER PHOTO PRODUCTS?
I sure do! If you’re interested in purchasing prints or other photo products such as wall art, photo albums, birth announcements and more just let me know and I can send you pricing. I use a professional printing lab that works exclusively with photographers allowing me to deliver products with exceptional quality.
