FAQs

How do I book? When are payments due?

A: Your session is confirmed upon payment of your retainer fee. The remainder of your session fee is due 48 hours prior to your session (or the first session if you booked a Bundle). To get started visit my contact page. 

What do I need to bring to the newborn session?

A: The baby! There is no need to make any purchases for the session. Typically, the outfits found on Amazon or Etsy are not well-fitted or made for newborn photography. I have all the backdrops, wraps, headbands, bonnets and outfits in my studio. 

What do I wear?

A: Once your session is confirmed through the retainer fee, I will send you my location and wardrobe guides. Within the wardrobe guide is my Client Closet, which you have access to for the session if you so desire!

For the newborn session I will send you a Prep Packet that includes instructions for you and your baby. 

How do I pick a location?

A: Once your session is confirmed through the retainer fee, I will send you my location and wardrobe guides. This will help you determine the best place for your vision.

What is included in the styling?

A: Styling includes access to my Client Closet. I will help walk you through what outfits are best for the location you’ve chosen, how to dress any stubborn family members in something they will be comfortable with that matches the flow of your session. You are welcome to send me images of your outfits so I may help style for you. Referrals for hair and makeup upon request – I currently do not offer those services. 


What do I need to bring to the outdoor session?

A: Your family! Some things to bring when doing an outdoor session include a water bottle, bug spray, towels (sometimes I have you get wet or muddy), and most trails allow room for strollers so you can carry your stuff and the kids without too much effort. Because the land lends itself to thorns and cacti, a small pack of bandages and tweezers never hurt the prepared parent! 

When is a good time to schedule?

A: The best time for a maternity session is 32-37 weeks. 

The best time for a newborn session is 6-17 days old. 

The best time for a family session is April-Oct. The best time to book is anytime! My fall months do book quickly, so reserving your session early is a great idea. 

When do I get the photos? How do I get the photos? Where can I print my images?

A: All of your images will be delivered through an online gallery. Once that email is sent you can view and select your images to download right to your computer. Those images are the high-resolution images, along with your print release. As for prints, you are welcome to purchase right from the online gallery as they have a professional lab that send prints right to your door! 

Do you offer any discounts?

Yes! 

I am a company that backs the Blue, Military, and First Responders. I offer a 10% discount off any package on my pricing page for all Law Enforcement Officers, active military members, and other first responders. Please note this in your email when you contact me. 

I also offer a 15% discount to all actively licensed foster families. As a foster parent myself I support the parents who have chosen this crazy and chaotic course in life to bring children into safe and loving homes, even if only for a while. This discount also applies to any family currently adopting, or embryo adoption.
