When to book your maternity session?
I recommend that a maternity shoot be scheduled close to your 30-week mark, once the baby bump really starts to show 🙂
When to book your newborn session?
The best time to schedule is while you are still pregnant so that we can set the date when the baby would be under 2 weeks of age. The best time to capture sleepy, curly newborn portraits is from 1-10 days of life and under two weeks of age.
What is the best time for baby portraits?
6-9 months is the best age to capture your baby’s big personality as they’re sitting up and smiling.
How long will your session take?
Maternity sessions usually are 30 mins to an hour
Newborn sessions can take up to 3 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting.
Babies, children and family are from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours
What is the Process?
After you book, I will email or send you your welcome package. Then, we’ll schedule your pre-session consult for about 1 week before your session. Your gallery viewing appointment is scheduled about 2 weeks after your session takes place or alternatively I will email you with a password for your private online proofing gallery. The online gallery will remain active for 3 days. Once full payment is received your prints will be ordered; they can take 2-3 weeks for delivery and longer for wall art or albums.
Once the gallery has been closed there will be a BD 10 fee to upload your gallery for an additional 5 days.
You can order your prints by sending me an email with your selections. An invoice will then be sent back with payment details. Payment can be made by bank deposit, cheque or cash.
What to wear?
Every client is encouraged to bring any type of clothing they feel comfortable in, or welcome to browse through the studio collection.
My style lends itself to a soft color palette of whites, creams, and hues of soft pink and blue. You will find a variety of soft and delicate sleepers, rompers, dresses, headbands, and beautiful baby wraps. This is discussed in more details during the pre-session consultation with the family at the studio or over the phone. We will discuss your ideas for the shoot, the best wardrobe to compliment your ideas and how to prepare for the session.
