**Please note, newborns are best photographed within the first two weeks of life
(to get that teeny-tiny newborn look). If you are currently pregnant, please let us know your anticipated due date and we schedule your session in advance.

If you've already given birth to your newborn, please call us as soon as possible and we'll do our best to schedule your session immediately.

The session fee is due one week before the session is scheduled to occur. The fee includes the time and talent of the photographer and the creative editing of approximately 20-40 images.

Please note, the session fee does not include any prints or photo products (e.g. canvases, digital images, framing, album books, etc.).

Session Duration

Photo sessions typically last between 1-2 hours, but there is no time limit regarding the length of a session.

For newborns, we usually plan for at least 2 hours, allowing time for feedings, changing, and breaks as needed.

Session Cancellation
If your child or a family member becomes sick, please call me as soon as possible. A photography session with a sick child isn't good for anyone. For all other cancellations or rescheduling requests, please give us at least 48 hours notice, otherwise the session fee is non-refundable.
