• • • Will you come to my home for the newborn photo session?
Absolutely YES! I am an ON-LOCATION photographer and I will come where ever you need me to! But keep in mind that clients who live more than 30kms away from H7E0E3 will be billed additional charges for travel at $1/km that will be added to your final invoice.
• • • When is the best time to book a session?
They are best booked in the middle of your second trimester, at least 6-8 weeks in advance as only a limited numbers are scheduled each month to ensure I am free to accommodate them all within the needed time frame once they arrive.
• • • How old should my newborn be for the session?
Between 5-12 days. During this time the baby sleeps up to 18 hours a day and remains in a wonderful ‘curl’ from the womb. After 10-12 days, the baby starts to push their limbs out a little and are awake for longer periods of time. I ask my clients to let me know within 3 days of your babies birth to ensure getting you on the schedule within those first precious days.
• • • How long will my newborn session take?
Between soothing, precise posing, feeding, and setting up/prepping our shots, they take about 3-4 hours. Multiple newborns may take longer.
• • • Does the session fee include family/sibling pictures?
YES! In every session, immediate family (parents/siblings) are always welcome in the pictures. Extended family is not included in the fee.
• • • Do I need to have props for the session?
No need to have anything except your baby! I will bring everything for the session. You can include special items like family treasures.
• • • Do you offer a newborn documentary/lifestyle option?
Yes I do. This session is for those wanting a more organic and natural approach to photographing their newborn. Family photos, sibling photos and even pets are included in each and every photograph, documenting the love you have for your new baby.
• • • How long after the session can we expect the images?
You will receive a link to view your galley at about 2-4 weeks after the session. However, I will provide you with one sneak peek image shortly after, so you have something to share with your family and friends immediately. I usually post it on my Facebook page and I encourage all my clients to share links of the image, comment and tag!
• • • What is a proofing gallery?
It’s a temporary online gallery that will display the best photos from your session. These photos will be hand edited and creatively enhanced and are only for choosing the ones you’d like to buy. Copying or making screen shots of these images violates copyright law and is illegal. Please note: The proofing gallery is only made available for a period of 15 days. Please ensure that all orders are placed before the gallery expires. A fee of $25 will be charged to re-activate the gallery for 7 more days.
• • • Do you photograph during the weekends?
Yes I do. For weekend sessions, you will be charged an additional fee of $50.
• • • Do you have a referral program?
Of course! Being a small business owner, I rely heavily on referrals. For every referral that books and completes a session with me, you get a $50 credit towards your next session. Each new client also receives a $50 discount to use in their first session. The best part is that there is NO limit! You get a $50 credit for every referral you send our way that books and completes a session, that means if you refer 4 people, you get $200 in credits!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns!
