Frequently Asked Questions:
When is the best time to do a Maternity session? We suggest within the 29-34 weeks, when you have a nice round belly and feel good. Every mom varies in weight and size; we suggest calling in the beginning of your second trimester to discuss scheduling.
When is the best time to do a Newborn session? Newborn sessions are done when baby is 5-12 days. Babies change very quickly their eating habits and attachment to mom strengthens as the days go by. The first 2 weeks is the best time for them to be photographed in curled positions, because babies are born with extra bones that allow them to be extra flexible. Once baby is 10lbs or older than 2 weeks, these bones fuse. Since newborn sessions are strategically planned, and sessions last up to 3 hours they need to be booked in advanced. Newborn session inquiries after baby is born is not always available.
Will you be providing Maternity Gowns and styling? At the studio we carry many different gowns to enhance the maternity photos, these gowns range in sizes and colors. The maternity package includes 2 dress choices. For family members, we always suggest neutral colors, no loud prints or bold colors. These photos should be timeless and reflect your style.
Does the studio provide hair and make-up? We work with several hair and makeup stylists in the area. Prices are paid to the stylist and not the studio. Makeup should be a “Bridal Look” nothing trendy and not overdone. Hair trend currently is long lose curls, this provides hair movement for the photo shoot.
How is payment made? A $100 non-refundable Retainer fee is required at time of booking. Balance is paid at the session, cash or check is preferred.
When do we get our photos? We send an online gallery of the highlights of the session a week after your session date. You will select your favorites; we will review the favorites and send them back on an online gallery for download. Prints are sent to you digitally and can be printed up to 16x24.
