Sessions typically take place between your 32-36 week phase, though all women are different, so we will work together to determine the best and most comfortable time for you.

Fresh 48

We can't schedule these in advance unless you have a c-section scheduled, so we will be on call for you leading up to your due date. We aim to be there within 4-6 hours after you have given birth, ideally after you have been moved to your maternity room. Only one of us will go and we will stay between 45-90 minutes.

At The Session

 

Kids, Portraits, Maternity, Couples and Family photo sessions last 60 minutes unless otherwise specified. The shoot will be on-location or at your home. You can choose or we can suggest some appropriate locations, depending on what type of backdrop you are looking for. Some locations require an extended amount of walking so please be prepared, ie: water, snacks, ect.

Fresh 48

Within 24-48 hours after you give birth, we will meet you in your maternity room to document those first moments of your little one. They will be of natural interactions of you and your family. We will be "on call" as you get closer to your delivery. We only take a number of these sessions a month, so space is limited.

Newborn

Newborn sessions typically last 2-3 hours.  This will include breaks to feed, change the baby, and get them into a sound sleep. The best time to take posed photos of a newborn is within the first 14 days.  This will enable us to get those adorable peaceful sleepy poses.  The time between 14 days old and up to 6 weeks is ideal time for lifestyle newborn shoots.

Prints produced by drugstore or superstore facilities typically have a green or yellow tinge.​  We cannot guarantee the quality of your prints if done elsewhere.

Client galleries are password protected and available for you to share with family and friends, at your discretion. ​​​Prints and gifts can be ordered directly from your online gallery.

Digital files can be purchased individually for $30 for 5x7, $50 for 8x10 and $75 for 11x14.
