Q: How can I prepare for an in-home session?
A: Since I am a natural light photographer it would be best to clear away any pieces of furniture from the biggest window or glass door in your house. I will shoot all over your house, living room, dining room, nursery, and your bedroom. If weather permits we will go outdoors for some shots also. Have older babies and children fed and well rested. Newborns, have your heat turned up to about 80º and try to keep them awake prior to the shoot, that way we can get some photos of them awake and sleeping. We can take as many breaks as baby needs for feedings or diaper changes.
Q: What is the best age to photograph my newborn?
A: The ideal age to photograph a newborn is between 5-7 days old. They are still small enough to bend into cute poses and generally newborn acne hasn't flared up yet. Plus they tend to sleep the most at that age. You can book as far in advance as you like (I suggest booking 3-4 months in advance), we will work together around your due date to make sure we photograph baby in the 5-10 day old window.
Q: Do you shoot digital or film?
A: I shoot with all professional grade Canon digital equipment. I also bring all my back up equipment just in case.
Q: How do I book a date for my portraits?
A: I book on a first come first serve basis, the session fee is required upon booking. *Please note: Scheduled date is not guaranteed until contract & session fee are received. If contract & deposit aren't received within 5 days of agreed date, client forfeits their date.*
Q: Do you travel?
A: Of course! Mileage charges may apply, please email for more information. If location is out of state or a plane ride is required I charge for flight and hotel in addition to mileage.
Q: When will I receive my pictures?
A: You will receive your proofing information for portraits 2-3 weeks after your shoot date. Once digital collection is chosen and paid for you will receive a link for your instant download.
Q: Do you have a studio?
A: Yes! Please email me for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
