During the ordering session, we provide “soft proofing” which means your images are not retouched ahead of time. You choose your images and the level of retouching




How long does it take to receive an order?


This depends on what you are ordering. Most orders take around 2 weeks, however, retouching may add time in delivery. We will let you know your estimated delivery time at the time of ordering​.




Can I order more pictures later?


Yes, you can. We can only guarantee holding images for 1 year, however, we store our images on backups and usually can go back quite some time on image files​.




I have pre-booked my newborn now what? What if my baby comes early or late?


We ask that all clients email or call within 24-48 hours of having your baby. Most babies are booked anywhere from 8-10 or even 12 or 14 days depending on the baby's weight. Letting us know when you have your baby early enough allows rooms for scheduling and adjusting.​




I missed the newborn window and my baby is now 2 months old do you take them?


We photograph babies of any age. Your baby is no longer a newborn however you can still book a session. Please understand the baby most likely will not be able to do newborn poses or wraps and they are usually awake​.




When should I book my baby's newborn photos?


It is highly recommended booking a newborn photographer when you are in your second trimester. Your due date will act as your tentative booking date, and once your baby arrives we will schedule your newborn's session (usually within the first 8-21 days). If your baby is already born, please contact us ASAP. I will not turn your baby away based solely on their age; I welcome all babies into my studio. There may be limitations to poses and set-ups, depending on how old your baby is, but that does not mean we can't get gorgeous portraits of your baby.
