Q: Where is your studio located?

A: My commercial studio space is located in historic Summerfield – 7401 Summerfield Rd

Q: When are newborn sessions held? 

A: Newborn sessions are typically held within the first 5-14 days after baby arrives

Q: My husband/kids are back to work and school. Do you hold newborn session in the afternoon?

A: I want your photos to be a memorable experience. In my almost 10 years of photographing newborns, I have found that the best time for newborn photos is in the morning. The latest I will start a newborn session is 1130am for a Luxe session, and 1pm for a Petite Session. If dad/siblings are back at school, I ask that they get picked up early, or come during a lunch break.

Q: When is payment due?

A:  A $100 retainer fee is collected to book your session. This fee holds your date and allows me to start planning your custom session. The remaining balance is due the day of the session. I accept cards and cash. No Checks.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: Yes, Contact me to find out more about payment plans.

Q: Can we print our own photos?

A: Absolutely! A print release is included in your session fee for your images. If you choose to print your own photos, I highly recommend  using MPIX.com.  Prints, canvas, cards, wall art, and more can also be purchased through your gallery. I cannot guarantee the quality of any prints not printed through my professional lab.

Q: Do you provide props?

A: Yes, I have a growing collection of props for us to use during your child’s session. All of my props are made to fit newborns snugly to show off all of their teeny features.

Q: Can I bring my own props?

A: Sure! I always recommend bringing something personal for you to photograph with your baby (heirloom, quilt, special blanket or stuffy, etc). I just ask that you let me know before the session so that I can prepare the perfect set.

Q: Do you travel for newborn sessions?

A: No, I am unable to  travel for posed, studio newborn sessions. I do offer a lifestyle session that can be held in your home. Lifestyle sessions do not include any props or posing.

Q: I only get 5 images with my Petite Session, are additional images available for purchase? 

A: Yes, All of my sessions allow you to pick your favorite photos from your online gallery. My Petite Sessions include 5 that are included with your session fee, and the Luxe Sessions include 15 (20 for family). Your gallery may have anywhere from 15-45 images for you to choose your favorites from. Can’t choose? No problem! You can purchase the additional images for $30/each OR $100+tax for the full remaining gallery.
