Getting To Know Your Children


What to wear? Obviously, it's not really about what you wear, but I do have some suggestions. For newborns, less is best. Admit it, newborns look a little ridiculous in clothes! As for everyone else, I recommend clothing that is comfortable and casual. Please keep in mind, clothing with logos or heavily branded garments detract from the overall image. While simple clothing is always safe – funky, embellished and textured clothing can also photograph really well. In terms of footwear, barefoot is typically best. Hats, scarves and other well chosen clothing accessories look great as well.


Picking The Outfit(s)


After looking for light, I will want to spend some time getting to know your children. I'd like them to feel comfortable with me since I will be following them around for the next 1-2 hours.

I may ask them to show me their favorite toys or I may just sit down and play with them. Regardless, I will follow their lead.

Because I want your children to be as relaxed as possible, please do not make a big deal about it being "picture day." Also, please allow for and embrace spontaneous moments – often these make the best images. Lastly, I will never ask your child to say "cheese," and I ask that you don't either.


The Perfect Photo Session


I work well with both Natural and Studio lights – both on-location and in the studio. What, exactly, does this mean? It means that I can come to your home (or a different location of your choosing; i.e. beach, park, etc.) for your session or we can meet at the studio and you will get the same results!! GREAT Pictures. If we are in your home this may require moving furniture and opening blinds.

Services & Rates

Scheduling a Session

**Please note, newborns are best photographed within the first two weeks of life (to get that teeny-tiny newborn look).

If you are pregnant, please let me know your due date and I will make note in my schedule and be able to accommodate you. If you already have your teeny-tiny newborn, call me ASAP and I'll do my best to fit you in immediately.


New Born Rates & Fees

In-studio session fees:

Weekday – $250 | Weekend – $300

On-location fees:

Weekday – $275 | Weekend – $325

*Session fee is due one week after booking session. Fee includes the time and talent of the photographer and the creative editing of approximately 5-10 images.






Session Duration


There is no time limit on sessions, but they typically last between 1-2 hours. For newborns, I usually plan for at least 2 hours, allowing time for feedings, changing and breaks as needed.


Session Follow-up & Image Viewing

Approximately 2 weeks after your photo session an ordering session will be scheduled.

This is the time where we can go thru your proofs and you will order your prints. At the time of placing a print order, full payment will be due.

Accepted methods of payment include personal check and credit card (Visa, MasterCard and Discover).


Session Cancellation

If your child becomes sick – please call me ASAP. Trying to do a session with a sick child isn't good for anyone. For all other cancellations/reschedules, please give at least 48 hours notice, otherwise session fee will be forfeited.
