FAQ

I am expecting, when should I book my newborn photo session?
It is recommended that your newborn session is booked during your pregnancy, typically the 2nd or 3rd trimester.  To capture those sleepy baby images, the session takes place when the baby is 5-14 days old, when the baby spends most of the time sleeping.

When you contact me during your pregnancy, we will discuss your due date as well as the type of session you would like to have.  Your due date will be added to my calendar upon booking, and once baby arrives we will finalize the session date & time. 

 

Where will the session take place and how long will it last?
Newborn sessions take place in my studio, located in Fort Mill, SC and typically last 2-3 hours.

How long will it take to receive the final images?
You will receive a teaser or two within 24 hours of your session. The teaser will be a low resolution image and it will have my watermark on it.  Turnaround time for the final images is about 3 weeks after the newborn session.  Once your gallery is complete you will receive a private link where you can select your final images. The digital gallery link can be shared with family & friends and they can place an order for their own images.

Can I combine my Maternity and Newborn/Grow With Me sessions?
Yes you can and you will receive a discount when booking both sessions.  Please keep in mind that maternity sessions take place between week 30-36 of pregnancy, so make sure to contact me at the beginning of your 2nd trimester.

Milestone Sessions

Documenting the Milestones

Throughout the first year there are several big milestones that we like to document in pictures.  Typically they are around 6-9 months when the baby is sitting on his/her own, has found his/her toes and can smile at a favorite person/song/toy.  The other milestone is the big ONE.  This package provides you with the option to capture one or both of these milestones independently and not as part of the GWM package.

Session Details: 

  • 45 min to 1 hour session at my studio at Riverwalk in Rock Hill 

  • For the sitter session, the baby must be able to sit on their own without the assistance of an adult or chair

  • For the first birthday session parents provide the smash cake & balloons

  • Bubble / flower milk bath can be included in either a sitter or first birthday session

  • Additional images are available for purchase at $40 per digital image. Image groups of 10 or full galleries are available at a discounted rate
