Frequently Asked


next question


How far in advance should I book my Portrait session?

It’s never too early to reserve your place on my calendar! If you know you’d like to schedule a session with me, please reach out! I recommend scheduling your session at least 1-2 months in advance. For sessions in September and October, I recommend booking your session before the end of July. 


How far in advance should I book my NEWBORN session?

I recommend reaching out as soon as possible, especially if you are due between June and October!  It is best to reach out and have a spot reserved on my calendar before baby is born as I only schedule a limited number of sessions each week. 


How do I book my session?

When do you schedule sessions?

I schedule sessions on weekdays only. Newborn sessions take place mid-day for optimal indoor lighting. I’m very protective of my family time and, with the exception of select mini session dates, reserve Saturdays and Sundays for quality time with them. 


Can you help me plan outfits?

Yes! I have a Pinterest board style guide that I send along with my welcome email and I’m always an email away for any questions you have or to help you make decisions!


Can we include siblings in our newborn session?

YES! I have a lifestyle approach to newborn sessions and I will always include family and sibling photos in your session. I love to capture the relationships between each member of your family with the new baby!
