Frequently Asked Questions

Are you the right photographer for us?

Choosing the right photographer for your portrait needs doesn't have to be difficult! It is very important to me that each client receives a one of a kind customized experience. I make a point to meet with each of my clients so that I can design a session to fit their unique personality and style. It is a great time to get to know one another and to see if we are a good fit. Consultation are always free!

What does it mean to be a full service photography studio?

Full service means you receive a personalized experience and customized products that your family will cherish for generations to come. From our first meeting to long after your session is over; I am there every step of the way. I love getting to know my clients! It is simply one of my favorite aspects of the full service photography experience, and absolutely necessary for me to provide you with portraits that are both unique and creatively you. I offer a large array of custom artwork and products ranging from framed and matted prints, beautifully crafted albums, canvas gallery wraps, metals, gifts and much much more. In short, full service mean you get the whole experience!

When should we book our session?

I accept a limited number of sessions each month to ensure my clients receive the best experience. It is very important to plan ahead. I recommend booking several months in advance to receive your desired date in our books. It is especially important for our maternity and newborn clients to book well before baby is due. For our weddings and destination clients I only offer 4 per year!! Please book in advance!

Are the digital files included?

Web sized files are include with all product orders. Digital files are not. Most of my clients come to me for a full service photography experience. I am here to take care of you every step of the way! My goal is to provide you with finished artwork for you and your family to cherish and display. However if digital files are what you desire I do offer package bundles that you may purchase during your ordering appointment. You will not be disappointed with what I have to offer!

How old can newborns be?

Newborn sessions are for infants under 14 days old. However are best photographed between 5 and 10 days of age. Because of this short time frame I highly recommend booking your newborn session 2-3 months in advance to insure a spot in my books.

When is the best time for a baby session?

Oh how love photographing precious little babes! There are many great milestones in your babies first year. I recommend sessions at 6-7 months when baby is sitting on his own, but not yet crawling. One year sessions are also great! I also offer Cake Smash sessions at one year that include the cake, balloons, and even the clean up! Please contact me to discuss what would best fit your families needs.

What do we wear?

Choosing what to wear for your session is a very important step to achieving beautiful well rounded portraiture. During your consultation I go over what to wear ...and what not to wear! I offer beautiful gowns and dresses for my maternity clients and have a fully stocked wardrobe for my newborn and baby clients! Each client will receive a welcome packet full of great ideas! I will help you with outfit and color scheme ideas personalized to you.

I have a special idea or pose in mind. Can we recreate it?

Of course! That is what custom photography is all about! We will go over all your ideas during your consult so that I can custom design a session to fit your unique style and ideas.

What if we need to reschedule?

As a mother myself I understand that there are circumstances when you may need to reschedule your portrait session. I ask for at least 48 hour notice when rescheduling due to sickness or family emergencies. For my outdoor session we may reschedule due to bad weather. We will keep in touch and make that decision together, however please keep in mind that overcast days and light rain and snow can create some truly magical portraits!
