I want parents to be stress free during their session. They will most likely arrive a little overwhelmed, happy and tired… Okay, very very tired. I want them to know that no matter how their baby decides to feel that day during their session, they will leave knowing I will provide images that will last a lifetime and that they will cherish them forever. I want them to know that I will handle their baby with the utmost care.

FAQ

Generally, I recommend scheduling newborn sessions around 20-25 weeks so I can ensure I have time available in my schedule! This is going to be a very overwhelming and happy time and I want *everything* to be ready prior to the baby arriving.

 Once you receive your proposal, you will be prompted to sign your contract, and then pay a 20% deposit in order to secure your date (I always put the due date on my calendar as a placeholder). 


When should I book?

Generally, I put you on my calendar according to your due date because baby’s really make the rules and come when they would like. I don’t want parents to worry about this because I can still do a session even if the baby comes early or late!  

I have taken photos of HUNDREDS of babies and I really prefer to shoot sometime within the first 7-14 days of life. So, once the baby arrives, you let me know as soon as he/she is born and we will schedule your session within that time frame. I do have another full time job on the weekdays, so your newborn session is generally set up for the weekend within that 7-12 days.

When do we have our session?

I have a home studio in Erie and have many, many props for you to choose from! I do purchase things specifically for your session according to your questionnaire (if I don’t have it already), so if you have certain things you love, please let me know!! 

Where do I go for the session?

You can expect to get two questionnaires from me: one shortly after booking for some general information, and then another very close to your due date (within the week) to get more information and also to ask some questions once the baby arrives to see how they are doing!

What happens between booking and session date?

If you are interested in a maternity session, please make sure you select this as an add on and we can book this session at approximately 32-33 weeks gestation! You will receive a discount if booking with a newborn session rather than booking this session alone ($250 versus $350). 

Do you do maternity sessions?

I also highly recommend booking milestone sessions either immediately after newborn sessions (also discounted) or at the time of booking to make sure you are on my calendar as well.
