The day of your session will be an exciting one, but it is my goal to minimize any stress you might experience. Please come prepared to relax! I have a beautiful lounge area to rest in. You will find a stocked coffee bar with different types of coffee, tea, and snacks. Cold beverages can be found in the mini fridge as well. You are also welcome to watch me work!
Milestone and child sessions last 45 minutes to an hour. Newborn sessions typically run two to three hours, but can go as long as four hours. Please take this time to recharge and revel in your new arrival(s). And don’t worry, if you want to take a nap I completely understand and encourage you to do so (I even have a bed)!
All of my Signature newborn sessions include professional hair and makeup for my mommies. My wonderful hair and makeup artist Alexandria will come to the studio the day of your session, so you need only show up! You will find a growing assortment of maternity gowns and my guidance in postnatal wardrobe to complete your look.
I have searched high and low for the best quality props from some of the most trusted and sought after vendors in the industry. Everything is purchased with safety in mind. It is important to me that everything in my studio is naturally and responsibly sourced. From soft alpaca bonnets to cozy angora rompers; I pay close attention to potential irritants to your new little one’s skin. Soft flokati rugs and small sitter stools and crates coordinate beautifully with my simple sets for older baby sessions.
Typically, within a week of your session, we will meet in the studio for your reveal and ordering session. It is at this time that you will select and place your order, so it is important that all deciding parties are present. I do not have printed pricing or product information for you to take home. I accept credit cards via PayPal, Venmo, check, and cash. Non-credit card payments receive a product bonus. Payment plans are available for orders over $600.
It’s important to me that my clients receive only the best products for their images. You are guaranteed to walk away with the best items available! Gorgeous albums, beautiful museum-grade canvases, natural wood prints, authentic barnwood frames, and fine-art paper prints are all available to you. All of my items have been hand-selected for their quality, beauty, and longevity. Bottom line: If I wouldn’t have it in my home, it doesn’t belong in my clients’! See a handful of my product options here.
