When should I book my session? 

When should I book my session 

 *My calendar fills up 2-3 months in advance, I always recommend that you book your maternity photos when you are 12-20 weeks along to guarantee your spot on my calendar. It's also best to book your newborn session at this time, so you can secure both spots. Once you're booked you are guaranteed a spot no matter when baby decides to arrive. We do our best to accomodate last minute bookings.

Do I need to bring anything for my session?

Do i need to bring anything for my session?

We have a full client closet for you to view and choose from. I have a variety of different dress styles, colors, materials, etc. We will also use materials like silk, satin, chiffon, and tulle to add variety to your gallery. Any dresses you see on my maternity portfolio are options for your shoot. The only items I recommend you bring are a nude seamless thong, nude strapless bra, and jewelry ( optional). Your prep guide will have a full list and what to expect. 

I have a ton of props and outfits for your baby. You will fill out a questionnaire prior to your session, so you can tell me the colors and all the details needed to create your dream newborn session. For your newborn photos or milestone photos you only need a few necessities such as diapers and baby snacks.  Your prep guide will also have a checklist for you to go through.

For cake smashes I design and provide everything for a customized set for your little one. We start with before portraits, cake smash, and end in the bathtub to get cleaned up for the ride home.

When will my session be scheduled?

When will my session be scheduled?

* Maternity photoshoots take place between 30-34 weeks in term. You need to book between 12-20 weeks in term to guarantee your spot on my calendar. If you are having multiples, the session will take place between 28-30 weeks in term.

* The optimum time for your newborn photoshoot is when your baby is between 9-20 days old.

* For milestone photos we offer 3-month, 6-9 month sitter sessions, or one year birthday sessions. Three month sessions are scheduled when baby can hold their head up for at least 1 minute. Sitter sessions are scheduled once the baby is sitting fully unassisted. One year photoshoots are scheduled around 11 months to ensure your photos are back for baby's birthday or to use as party decor.

Can I include my family or my my partner in the photos?


Yes, we always encourage significant other and siblings to join in for a few. There is no additional costs to add your immediate family. We include 2-4 different looks with your partner or family at your maternity session and you have the option to include family/sibling at the newborn session or just have baby only.

Do you have package options when booking multiple sessions?
