Q&A

Location

I am located in Gwinnett County Georgia, specifically the Hamilton Mill area; exit 120 off of 85N. I serve Gwinnett, Barrow, Jackson, Hall, Clarke, Walton, Fulton, Cobb, De Kalb, and Forsyth Counties and all surrounding areas.

When to schedule and session tips:

Newborns

You may schedule your newborn session as soon as you have a due date. The sooner the better! This allows me to have plenty of time to select props and create sets that make your session absolutely perfect.

The actual date and time of your session will be scheduled once your baby arrives. Submitting your session retainer allows me to note your due date on my calendar. Newborn sessions are best when your little one is between 5-10 days of age. Newborns this tiny are still flexible, extremely sleepy, and should not have developed baby acne that appears on some babies at around two weeks of age.

If you have an older newborn, please contact me as I have been able to pose babies up to four weeks old. We can still capture beautiful images!

PLEASE NOTE: All newborn sessions, and most all baby milestone sessions, will take place on a weekday morning. Exact date will be determined once your baby is born. 

Maternity

Maternity portraits are best between 32-36 weeks. At this stage, your belly should be large enough to show off in your photos, but you will avoid taking portraits in those last few uncomfortable weeks.

You may wear as much or as little as desired for your maternity session. You can wear your favorite top with jeans, or we can plan for you to wear a long flowing maternity gown. Maternity sessions can be done at an outdoor location or in my home studio. I love documenting the exciting journey of pregnancy!

Baby Packages

My baby packages include sessions at the sitting milestone (normally between 6-8 months), and a one year session at around 11 months so that you can have photos for invitations and their birthday party if desired. You are able to choose packages that include family photos and a cake smash session as well.

Families

Family sessions can seem like a challenge, but my goal is for them to be fun and not stressful! Included in family sessions are group shots, individual poses, sibling photos, and candid moments. All family sessions beyond newborn sessions are shot at an outdoor location. These sessions can include as many or as few props as desired, and can also be themed. I would love to hear from you and discuss your ideas and help you plan your wardrobe and location!

 

The Process

A 50% retainer is due to book your date and time in my schedule.

We work together with my questionnaire and also by phone calls or emails to plan your session details.

We meet and have a blast taking your photos!!

Within 3 weeks (at most!) you will receive a link to your gallery of edited images of the best shots from your session.

Your gallery will be live for 7 days. In that time you may place a print order directly through your gallery and also download your digital images!

Print orders and any orders for Organic Bloom frames may also be placed through me. I am happy to help you select your prints for your home displays. I offer high quality professional prints, albums, canvas gallery wraps, Organic Bloom frames and other fun products.

All prices are subject to change unless a retainer has been submitted.

Please Note: Personal cameras, camcorders, or any other recording devices (including smart phones) are not allowed at sessions.
