The safety of your family is always my number one priority. I ask that you monitor the health of your family prior to your session and reschedule your session if anyone is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or has been exposed to anyone testing positive for COVID-19 within the past two weeks, and I will do the same with myself and my family. All props and fabrics are cleaned, laundered, and/or sanitized between each session. I am also happy to say that I am fully vaccinated as of April 2021! Please let me know if you would like me to wear a mask and I will be happy to.
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.
A $200 retainer is due at the time of booking in order to reserve time on my calendar. Within two weeks of your session we will have your Ordering Session where the remainder of your session fee will be due and you will have the opportunity to purchase printed products.
