How do you accept payments?
I can accept cash, check, credit card or Venmo payments.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS AT THE TIME OF OUR SCHEDULED SESSION?
The weather in Washington changes so quickly! I check the weather constantly and the hourly forecast is pretty accurate the day before our shoot. I do ask that we wait until the night before or morning of the session to decide if we are going to change plans. If it is raining, we can do one of three things: Move the session to your home and have a fun Lifestyle session or reschedule or turn the session into a puddle jumping session and go play!
CAN OUR DOG JOIN US FOR THE SESSION?
Absolutely! I truly love animals and believe that they are just as much a member of the family as the kiddos are so let's include them! I do have a neutral colored leash that I am happy to bring to the session so that the bright colored leash you may have is not distracting.
How long does it take to receive the photos after the session and how will those be delivered?
I ask for two weeks to edit the gallery and will deliver them via an online gallery where you can download them to your computer one at a time or as a whole with a zip file.
When is the best time to capture a Posed Newborn Session? What about a Lifestyle Newborn Session?
Posed newborn sessions are best captured between 4 days old and 14 days old. Lifestyle sessions are best captured between 10 days old and 45 days old.
When should I book my newborn session?
As soon as you can! I take a limited number of newborns per month just in case all the babies arrive at once; I need to be available to photograph them all in a timely manner.
Since we don't know when baby will arrive, how do you handle newborn scheduling?
In my contract with you, I guarantee to be available to your family for a six week period: two weeks ahead of your due date and four weeks after your due date. Once baby arrives, please send me a message within 48 hours so that I can arrange my schedule and we will then set the date for your newborn session.
How much room do you need in our home to setup for the newborn session?
I like to have a 5' x 5' area at the very minimum. The best place is a quiet space away from TVs that may be on or dishes that may be getting washed. We want baby in a deep sleep to get the best poses. If I need to put up lighting due to lack of natural light, a larger space will be needed. I am super creative at making small spaces work though, so don't panic.
