Before Your Session

I have your session booked and we are all looking forward to it. What's next? Here are some helpful hints on what to expect on the day of your session.


How long will the session take?

For the Family Session, please give yourself at least 2 hours total (less if I am meeting you at your home). If we are meeting at a park, you need time to find parking and find our meeting spot. The session will take about an hour, depending on how cooperative the kids are that day. As a mom, I know how hard it can be to corral kids. It's always best to give yourself extra time so no one is stressed at the session.

Newborn shoots take up to 2.5 hours depending on how many breaks the wee one needs for feeding and diaper changes. We work on their time! I'm happy to take my time to get the photos we need :)

When will my photos be ready?

Your fully edited photos will be ready within two weeks of your session. After putting in your print order, give me an additional week. Additional time for canvas, metal prints and books.

What should I wear?

Being comfortable, especially for the little ones, is key. If your tot hates dress shoes, don't force her to wear them...let her go barefoot if she wants. Dress appropriately for the weather. Maybe instead of a bright puffer jacket, a few layers will make for a better photo. Speaking of a bright puffer, no neon colors please! A safe bet is neutral palette with splashes of color. Your family doesn't have to match, coordination is key. A happy, relaxed family is what makes for good photos!

How do I pay you?

Please expect to pay $150 non-refundable booking fee up front in order for me to book your date. The remaining amount of your session will be expected the day of the shoot. Currently I accept Cash app and Venmo.

What if I have to reschedule?

Please be courteous to me and my time by getting in touch as soon as possible, by email or text, if you need to cancel or reschedule. If you cancel without a 48-hour notice or you do not show up, you will forfeit your $150 booking fee.
