Frequently asked questions

Newborn Sessions

When is the best time to reserve my newborn session?


Newborn sessions are typically booked early on, months before baby's arrival. But session dates are not confirmed until your little one has made their debut. Once your retainer has been made I will send you a Newborn Session Prep Guide which will explain in detail how the booking process works (how & when to notify me) as well as what to expect from and how to best prepare for our session together.
Portraits will be taken between 10 and 14 days after birth. After this window babies tend to sleep less and are more easily disturbed by movement. While I have had success multiple times when photographing an infant more than 14 days old I always tell my clients it's not guaranteed that I'll be able to achieve those sleepy poses you'll find scattered across my Facebook feed.




Where is your studio located?


I am located in the Liberty Link lot at 8065 Brentwood Blvd. Brentwood Ste 2A. For those familiar with the area I am in the same lot as Tailgaters and Cal Punk. My studio is in the back left corner to the direct left of The Haircut Place. I do not have a large sign overhead but my logo is on my door.




What should I bring to my newborn session?


I recommend that parents bring a pacifier (even if you do not intend on using one permanently), plenty of formula if you're not nursing and several diapers.
I provide nearly everything else! I have bonnets, headbands, wraps, blankets, backdrops and props all available in the studio!

I have my own studio located right here in Brentwood which means you don't have to worry about preparing your home for a session. My studio is kept clean and surfaces are sanitized regularly. Having a studio of my own also means I can completely control the environment to make sure it is properly heated for the comfort and safety of your little one.
All of my packages are inclusive which means there are no unexpected fees. Purchasing prints and/or additional images is offered but not required. Once your session has been completed I will get to work culling and editing your digital files. You will then receive a password protected gallery where you can download your images to your computer at home as well as a print release so you can order prints wherever and whenever you'd like! If that doesn't convince you just check out my Yelp and Facebook reviews!

What is a splash session?


It started as a fun way to clean littles after their cake smash but soon became a popular request since parents love the way their little ones squeal and splash around in the tub! Now there's an adorable way to capture that! Your splash session can be a milk bath, bubble bath or even a fruit bath! Whatever you envision it to be!
