Booking
It's never too early to book your session.  Session slots are limited.  Most of my clients book about two months in advance.  Appointment date for the newborn photo session is scheduled after the baby is born.  


Timing

The ideal time for newborn photos is within the first 14 days after birth, but babies are photographed as newborn up to about 4 weeks old. It is important that I am notified as soon as baby is born, so we can schedule the date for the photo session as soon as possible!  If you did not pre-book before birth, please don't hesitate to contact me anyway.  I try to accommodate last minute bookings.  I usually like to photograph babies within their first 14 days or so, after birth. For preterm babies or those born with health complications, that’s often not possible as they sometimes need an extended stay in hospital. In most cases, once baby has been cleared by their doctors to leave the hospital, it would be ideal to get them in for their photo session as soon as possible. I also offer older baby sessions.

Deposit
A $200 non-refundable deposit is required in order to book your session and secure availability around your due date.  Dates are not held without paid deposit.  The deposit applies toward the photo session with the remaining balance due on session day.  


Payments accepted: cash, personal check, Venmo, Zelle, PayPal. 


Online Gallery of Photos
Within 2 weeks of your session, professionally retouched photos will be available in a private online gallery. The style and quality will be consistent with those on my website. I select the images to finish based on a variety of things (lighting, composition, emotion, expression). All of the images will be individually hand-edited by me. I never show or provide unedited images. You will receive notification when your gallery is ready along with the password to access it. You may share your password with friends and family.  A few 'sneak peek' images will be available to view online within 24-48 hours of your session.


Model Release
All sessions require a signed model release.


Cancellation
Cancellations must be made at least 7 days prior to your session and any deposit will be applied to a future date.


Payment Plans
I never want precious fleeting moments lost due to finances. If you would like me to capture this special time and pay in the future, I request a deposit now for the session, and your images will be viewed and edited after payment is made in full.


Gift Certificates
The gift of a newborn photos is a timeless, precious gift that will last a lifetime. I have a beautifully designed gift card just for this occasion.



A LA CARTE PRINT ITEMS


Fine Art Prints
I will work with you on options for displaying your newborn photos in beautiful and creative ways. Professional prints, birth announcements, keepsake photo albums, and fine art canvases and wall prints are available. You can order professional prints directly from your online gallery, or if you prefer, you may email or call me with your order. The online gallery shopping cart is a great way for family to order their favorite prints too. If you prefer to meet in person to view your photos, that can be arranged.

Birth Announcements
Share the joyous news with custom photo birth announcements that will be a lasting memento of those precious newborn moments. Birth announcements are flat cards with envelopes. I offer modern and traditional designs to add your personal style and a special touch to your baby's grand debut!

--------------------------

Keepsake Albums
Each beautifully hand crafted album is custom designed by me. From the paper to the printing, quality is at the heart of every photo book. My photo books use real archival quality professional lustre photo paper. The unique binding system allows every page spread to lay flat without any gutter or unsightly seam to separate your pages. Beautiful presentation with incredible durability. These premium photo books look stunning and last a lifetime. Extra copies of the same or smaller sizes can be ordered and are a perfect gift for grandparents. For more details and options please send me a note and we can discuss your needs.

--------------------------

Gallery Wrap Canvas
Canvases are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art canvas using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. The premium inks produce images with smooth tones and rich colors, making these prints ideal for extraordinary presentations. The process enables printing directly onto museum-quality canvas material, so prints will not separate over time. Protective spray coating is applied to the surface of each print to help prevent scratches and other damage. Canvas Wrap prints are a stylish alternative to traditional framing. The print is wrapped around a stretcher frame so that 1 1/2" of the photo's edges are visible on the sides of the frame. They're delivered display-ready with hanging hardware attached.

MetalPrints - Beautiful Prints on Aluminum
MetalPrints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.


--------------------------

Digital Images
I select the images to finish based on a variety of things (lighting, composition, emotion, expression).  The images you receive will be individually hand-edited by me. I never show or provide the raw unedited images and they are not for sale.
