Do you travel?
Yes! I’m based out of the Stafford/Fredericksburg area but I travel anywhere from DC to Richmond locally.
I’m also happy to fly to other locations in the US. Travel fees do apply.
What happens if the baby gets fussy or hungry during our session?
I’m a mom of two boys myself and I totally understand that babies need breaks.
I’m happy to take breaks as needed for top offs to make baby happy.
A warm full belly is usually all we need to get those adorable sleepy photos!
Do you use props or sets at your sessions?
My newborn photos are natural and organic images of your baby.
I like to keep things very simple and clean so I don’t provide any sets or props.
I’m thrilled to include things like family heirlooms such as a baby blanket or special stuffed animal in the photos though.
Plus if you have a little girl I’m a total sucker for a beautiful headband!
When do you typically photograph newborns?
I like to schedule our newborn session when your baby is around 10 days old.
Ideally anywhere from 7-14 is preferred. I definitely understand that some parents can’t schedule for that time frame especially if they have dealt with a NICU stay.
So please don’t worry and know no matter how old your baby is we can create some beautiful photos for you!
What can we do with the digital images included in our collection?
All of my collections include digital files and a print release.
This means that you can post them on Facebook or Instagram, share them through email to family and print them wherever you please in whatever size you please.
Keep in mind though that when ordering prints through me you will be getting quality prints that match your files exactly.
If you print elsewhere on your own I cannot guarantee they will be correct.
When will I see my photos?
Your full gallery will be ready within 2 weeks!
What time of day will my session be?
With maternity sessions, we typically shoot weekdays in late afternoon/early evening so we get that beautiful glowy sunset light!
For newborn sessions, I find babies are better in the morning when everyone is fresh so those are scheduled around 10 am on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Are parents and siblings included in the photos?
Of course! My goal is to capture your new family not just your baby.
We will work together to get adorable sibling photos and know that yes it may take bribes but that is ok!
We stuffed Vanilla Wafers around my youngest to get my oldest to interact with him during our newborn session. You gotta do what you gotta do!
