a: for sufficient impact, maternity sessions should take place between the 32nd and 36th weeks of your pregnancy. depending on the time of year, you should BOOK your session between 2 and 4 weeks in advance.
q: when should i schedule my newborn session?
a: i only like to photograph newborns as early as possible within the first 10 days of life (you should book your newborn session during your pregnancy to reserve a time slot–we can always reschedule it according to your actual birth). the 14th day is typically the fussiest day of your baby’s life so far, so the 2-3 days surrounding that day should be avoided. after 10 days, it’s harder to get the babies to sleep hard enough to pose them. i am happy to photograph babies older than 10 days, but it should be noted that it may be harder to get typical “newborn” shots–the session will just have a different scope!
q: what’s your turnaround time?
a: during low-volume months, my turnaround time is about 2-3 weeks. during the holidays, it can get a few weeks longer, but rest assured that you will get at least a few images (for holiday cards, etc.) during the 2-3 week timeframe!
q: what happens after my session?
a: after your session is complete, I will edit your photos and provide you with an online gallery and password where you can view your session, share your photos with friends and family and order prints and products. You will receive an email from me with the log-in and password information.
q: how long will my gallery be available online?
a: your gallery will be available for 3 months after your session. Should you need to have it re-instated, there will be a $25 fee.
