Thank you so much for considering me to document this special time in your lives. Welcoming a new baby into your family is such a magical time. I can't wait to give you an experience you will treasure forever! I strive to make each session unique to your style and needs of your baby. 
Some people are surprised at just how long a newborn session can take. But a majority of babies that come in are not awake the entire session. That is why I allow for plenty of time to feed and snuggle your newborn should they need it.While I am more than happy to photograph an awake baby, I want them to be calm and happy. 

Newborn sessions are typically booked 3-6 months in advance, however I do take last minute bookings when space is available. All sessions take place in my home studio and include access to my extensive collection of wraps, props and accessories. I prefer to capture newborns before they hit 3 weeks of age, with 5-14 days being ideal.
Please think of this session as a time to relax. You are welcome to photograph your little one, catch up on your newsfeed or emails (free wifi!), or simply take a much needed nap.

Where in the world are you?
I have a fully-dedicated studio space in my home in Supply/Holden Beach, NC

How do we book you?
Simple! Just message me to check availability. We can go over what collection suites you best and get a proposal sent over for you to sign and pay your booking fee! 

How far in advance can we book?
I am only taking on 4-5 newborns per month. The sooner the better! Let's get your due date on my books!

Do you travel?
I do not travel for milestone or newborn sessions. I have a wonderful room in my home dedicated to shoot newborns in. You will have a comfortable place to sit and relax while you watch baby be photographed. I will have snacks, water, and coffee for you to enjoy! My newborn room is only used for sessions and is cleaned and sanitized before and after every client!

When should my newborn session be scheduled?
Newborn sessions are best scheduled before 3 weeks of age, with 5-14 days being ideal. At about the 3 week mark, most babies start to stretch out more and do not sleep as soundly. Little boys who are circumcised need at least 3 days to heal before their session. If your baby was premature, then this time frame can usually be pushed out. Please contact me to discuss further.

Do you travel for maternity and family? 
Maternity sessions are on location! There are so many beautiful options for these! Stand alone family sessions are also shot on location. 
****If  family photos are included with your newborn session those will be done in studio!

How do we choose our photos?
You will receive a proofing gallery with watermarked images to choose from!  The number of images you receive with each collection will be listed in your proposal! You will be able to purchase the full gallery if you choose! Once you choose your images, I will send you a link for your download gallery that will be your un-watermarked images with a print release!

If I have scheduled a newborn session, when should I let you know the baby has arrived?
ASAP (preferably within 48 hours of birth)! Shoot me an email and let me know so we can get your little one on the books with in the first few weeks of life.

What do we bring to our session?
You only need to bring basic needs for you and baby! Diapers, bottle, paci, ext.. 
I will have everything for babies photos, headbands, hats, props, outfits, blankets.

Can I bring my own props or ideas to a newborn session? Can I send you ideas?
My studio is full of props and accessories for use at your session. They are all items that I know will work well, are sized right, and are safe for your baby. If you have something you really want to use, please email me and we can discuss it further. 



Do we get to choose our colors and props?
YES! I have so many colors, set ups, and quality newborn props for you to choose from for your newborn and milestone sessions! I will send you a questionnaire where you can request colors and specific props!

Do you deliver any black & white images?
I will deliver a duplicate B&W image of all images you purchase!

When can we expect our finished photos?
I promise, I'm just as excited about your photos as you are. Each and every photo is combed through, every last image that meets my standards will be edited and added to your proofing gallery. Once I am confident that your collection is perfect, I'll be in touch the very moment they are ready to view! 
Full galleries are delivered within 4-5 weeks!

When do I schedule my maternity session?
30-36 weeks is the best time to schedule your maternity session. But, I do understand some moms show later and some earlier in pregnancy. When you feel the best is the perfect time!

What time of day do you schedule newborn sessions? 
Newborn sessions are scheduled from 10 am - 1pm Monday-Saturday!

When should my newborn session be scheduled?
Newborn sessions are best scheduled before 3 weeks of age, with 5-14 days being ideal. At about the 3 week mark, most babies start to stretch out more and do not sleep as soundly. Little boys who are circumcised need at least 3 days to heal before their session. If your baby was premature, then this time frame can usually be pushed out. Please contact me to discuss further.

What should we wear for our newborn session?
I usually suggest neutral colors for your family images, greys/creams/whites/pastels. Sleeveless, long or 3/4 sleeves look best, and solid colors will keep the attention to you rather than your clothing. Please avoid patterns or logos, and whatever you wear, keep it lightweight as it is quite warm in the studio and preferably dress in layers so you don’t get too hot.

What should I do if my baby is more than 3-4 weeks old?
First of all, don’t worry! While some babies aren’t as sleepy and flexible at this age, there are still plenty of poses we are able to do. Contact me and we can discuss your options. You could also choose to wait until the next milestone age. This could be 3-4 months when your little one is able to push up on their tummy and hold up their head, or 6-7 months when they can sit up on their own. This will yield some beautiful photos of your alert, smiling, giggling little one that you will love just as much as the newborn photos!
