When should my newborn or baby be photographed?
Newborns are best photographed 2-10 days after their birthday!
Babies are best photographed when they are sitting independently but not yet crawling. These are ideal time frames but can work with any age.
How long are the photo sessions?
Newborn sessions can last anywhere from2-3 hours. They control the shoots and let me know what's comfortable. I like to make the sessions very relaxed and allow a lot of time for changes and feedings, so no need to fret.
Family + baby sessions last about 60-90 minutes.
Maternity sessions last about an hour.
Every session is completely unique and don't put a time limit on it . As long as we're all having fun, it'll last until we get those amazing shots!
What do we wear?
I cannot stress this enough: less is more. I'm telling you. Less accessories, less patterns. After your booking.. I'll send you some inspiration color palettes and recommendations. This really allows me to focus on you and your family without logos and heavy patterns and textures standing in the way. Please no matching. Thank you thank you.
What is your style?
I'd say that I like to keep things simple, minimal, and clutter free. I have ways of creating that image even in the most cluttered home. Clothing and accessories also are to remain simple since I love to keep the focus on their faces and personalities. I'd say: modern + fresh. Love to create a mix of the creamy black and whites with the fresh and natural light images!
Will I receive digital images from our session?
Every print and/or product that is purchased includes the corresponding high-resolution digital file. You also receive all the watermarked image proofs in your online gallery that you can share directly to social media outlets if you wish!
Do you offer mini sessions?
Yep. Every Spring + Fall. Sign ask to be signed up to be on the VIP list for information about upcoming mini sessions
When should I book my session?
As soon as possible! Sessions are booked out 1-2 months in advance but it doesn't hurt to reach out in case there might be a cancellation. Pretty light is always a priority (early morning or a couple hours before sunset), but shooting around nap time is also ideal. We'll work together to find a good time to accommodate both.
Where is the photo session held?
All sessions are held in-home or on-location [ travel fees apply for outside NYC boroughs ] Newborn sessions are always held in-home.
Do you have any recommendations for on-location shoots?
Ah! So many. We can discuss locations after you book your session!
What if I need to reschedule or cancel?
No problem. Kids get sick, schedules are in constant flux. We'll take a look at the calendar and find the next time that suits both of us. Just let me know as soon as you do!
In order to hold your session on the calendar, I ask for the full session fee as a non-refundable deposit. You can reschedule up to a year after your booking date! So, if that date doesn't work for you, you can plan to change the date for up to a year from your booking date or pass it over to a friend as a gift.
Mini sessions cannot be rescheduled.
Why do you ask for the full creative session fee as a deposit to book?
Just a way to make sure we're all committed to creating the artwork!
I have no idea what sizes to print and where to put my artwork. Can you help?
At no additional charge, I'd love to come to your home and help you create some timeless artwork. I love design! My 5 years helping clients design artwork pieces may come in hand to you.
Pictures are always a great gift. Especially for grandma + grandpa! Let me know an amount and I'll mail them a nice gift certificate for them to open!
