Maternity sessions are usually around 32-34 weeks.
Ideally, newborn sessions should be booked during your second or third trimester. Notify me when the baby arrives, and we will schedule your session within the first two weeks. I sometimes have last minute availability, so if you already had your baby, please inquire!
Newborn sessions take place in your home, which removes the stress of having to pack up and get out the door with your brand-new baby. I bring everything we need – lighting, backdrops, props, and accessories. All you have to do to prepare is feed the baby and then sit back and relax! Check out this blog post for more information!
For newborn sessions, I suggest parents wear light-colored solid neutral tops. For family sessions, I suggest sticking to 2-3 colors and coordinating everyone’s outfits together. Check out this blog post for more tips and ideas!
I shoot outdoor family sessions year-round with my busiest time being September through December. The best lighting is early in the morning or in the two hours before sunset. There are several locations around Northeast Ohio that I shoot at frequently and can recommend, but I am always up for new locations – let me know if you have one in mind!
Yes, I offer Fall and Christmas Mini Sessions. These sessions take place at a specific location on a specific day at a discounted price. My Mini Sessions typically sell out, so if you are interested, please subscribe to my newsletter so that you will be notified as soon as they begin booking.
Your session fee is a retainer in order to reserve time on my calendar and is due at the time of booking. Within two weeks of your session we will have your Ordering Session where you will purchase your products and/or Digital Images. Your payment will be due at the Ordering Session.
