Frequently Asked Questions

~ When should we hire our photographer? 

Generally speaking, 2-3 months BEFORE your due date. My calendar gets booked very quickly and I often cannot accommodate  babies who have already been born. The sooner you can lock in your photographer, the better. 


~When should we hire our doula? 

I recommend hiring your doula around 2-3 months before your due date. This will allow the time needed to get to know each other, create your desired birth plan, and prepare together for your desired birth experience. 


~Can we hire you solely as our photographer or solely as our doula? 

Yes! I offer individualized doula fees, individualized photography packages, and all inclusive packages. Please email me directly for more info! 


~When do we bring our baby in for photos?

I like to photograph baby between day 5 and day 10 after birth. You notify me when baby is born so I can get your session scheduled within that time period. 


~Do you provide props and outfits?

Yes! I have everything needed to create beautiful photos in which your baby is the star! All I need is your baby :)


~Can I request special poses or props?

Yes! There are a few poses that I will not do but I love when my clients bring me ideas!


~Can I bring a special item to use at the session?

Yes! I ask that you don't bring crocheted items or outfits/specially made onesies but I do incorporate other things like dog tags, special stuffed animals, etc. Please ask me specifically so I can prepare for it at your session. 


~Will you do parent/sibling/family shots at our newborn session? 

Yes! Most of my packages do include family shots. Please email me directly for package information. 


~Do you do family sessions?

No. I specialize in maternity, births, and newborns. I do offer milestone sessions for newborn clients only and I will occasionally offer seasonal mini sessions as my schedule allows. Please see "Other Photo Services" on my home page for a couple photographers I recommend. 


~Do receive digital files with our photo packages? 

Yes! All my packages ordered come with digital files and a print release, as well as some other amazing goodies.
