Maternity, Birth, & Newborn Baby Photography Specialist

Frequently Asked Questions

~ When should we hire our photographer? 

At least 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 AT LEAST 2  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?

Newborn photos are time-sensitive. I like to photograph baby between day 5 and day 10 after birth. I ask my clients to notify me within 24 hours of baby's birth so I can get you scheduled within a timely manner. 


~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! Family shots are included in my sessions. 


~Do you do family sessions?

I offer family mini sessions seasonal. I also include family shots at milestone sessions. 


~When do we get to see our photos?

I will post a "sneak peek" from your session within 48 hours of your session. After that, an online viewing gallery will be emailed to 2 weeks after your session.


~How long do we have to order our photos?

Your gallery will be live for 5 days and your order must be placed within that time frame.
