Why hire a professional photographer?
This is not a question I frequently get however, I found an article that I wanted to share on the subject. Check it out: http://blog.backdropexpress.com/why-you-should-hire-a-professional-photographer/
When should I book my session?
ASAP. As of right now, I am booking out about a month and half in advance. Some factors to consider when booking a date is that I am probably not available on the fly or short notice. I also only book a certain amount of sessions per month. I have two little girls at home who get the majority of my time.
Maternity sessions should be booked asap for when you are 30-34 weeks pregnant when you have a good size bump!
Lifestyle Newborn sessions are best booked when baby is 1-14 days old, but can be booked up to 4 weeks old.
Fresh 48 sessions are booked based on delivery date. I will rely on you to notify me when you go into labor and/or notifying me as soon as baby is born. This will allow me time to find care for my 2 little ones.
What is a lifestyle newborn session and can't you just do a few posed shots?
Lifestyle newborn and traditional newborn studio session are very different. My approach is to capture your family with your new addition in the most authentic way possible. I also include portrait shots of just the baby, but after I wrap him or her up, I allow the baby to move, stretch, and settle in naturally. I do not provide props or outfits of any kind. There is absolutely nothing wrong with posed/traditional newborn shoots, I just do not provide that service at this time. Need an example? Click HERE for featured sessions! Not your style? Ask me for recommendations to my favorite posed newborn photographers!
Do you have a studio?
No, I don't. I am a lifestyle photographer so outdoor locations or in your home are where we will be shooting. No exceptions.
What should we wear?
I get this question a lot. My only requests? No logos, no matchy-matchy, no white shirts with blue jeans. I have put together a Pinterest board to give you some ideas. If all else fails, mom should pick what she is most comfortable in and everyone can coordinate around her.
Do you offer any discounts, return client discounts, or offer mini-sessions?
I give small discounts when clients book more than one session at at time. See above for package pricing.
Once you become my client, you are now eligible for mini-sessions throughout the year. These session are 30 minutes long, perfect for those super cute milestones of baby, or a quick family shoot.
I give a 15% off first-responder & military discount. Thank you for your service!
