A typical family session will last between 30 to 90 minutes. It is helpful with children to let them take breaks and allow extra time to capture those true expressions that are unique to them. A newborn session may last up to 3 hours to allow time for feedings, changing, and comforting.
For your family or maternity sessions, I love shooting on location (outdoors) at a location of your choice, however I do have some favorites if you are in need of some suggestions! We can work together on this to find the perfect fit for your session. I use a studio in my home for newborns, maternity and children.
The Newborn session should be scheduled prior to the baby’s birth, if possible. I recommend doing your newborn session within the first 10 days of life. This is the time when they are most sleepy and squishy and are easily moldable into all those adorable poses. I have an in home studio with plenty of props for your session. These sessions typically last 2-3 hours to allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and to capture those sweet, sleepy pictures.
Within 2 weeks of your session we will meet in my studio for a viewing session where you will place your order. Please come to this session prepared with ideas in mind of where you want to place your photos around your home. Do you want wall prints or canvases? Album or mini albums? Birth announcements, Christmas cards? We can work together to make sure your home is filled with art of your family. I can help select wall arrangements and ideas if needed.
