Newborn Baby Photography Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s a list of FAQs that may answer some of your questions. Please also feel free to call or email me with your questions as well!
What if my baby is already more than 14 days old?
My newborn sessions are designed for infants 4 weeks and younger. Typically, newborn sessions are best for babies between 5-10 days young but that doesn’t mean we cannot accomplish beautiful images for babies a few days or even weeks older. During these first couple of weeks of life babies are extra “squishy”, “pliable” and most importantly, sleepy. In order to secure session availability, it is strongly recommended that you book your newborn session within the last few weeks of your pregnancy.
Do we need to bring props?
There are a plethora of adorable props available in the studio such as hats, headbands, backdrops, baskets, buckets and clothing. However, clients are encouraged to inform me ahead of time if there is a special item they would like to include in their portrait session such as a monogrammed blanket, heirloom bonnet, a special necklace that will be passed down, etc. so that I can prepare for this during my set ups.
Can we do portraits of the new baby and it’s older sibling?
Absolutely, I LOVE sibling shots but I can’t guarantee it for very young siblings. I will try my absolute best and I have lots of tricks and different ways to make it happen. However, I am sure you are aware of how unpredictable two year olds are – especially if they want nothing to do with the new baby. I strongly suggest having a plan for the sibling(s) to be dropped off before or picked up after their portion of the session. This will limit the amount of noise and distractions and most of all, prevent you from losing your patience.
When do we pay you?
The session retainer fee is due upon scheduling your session and your session is not considered booked until the session fee retainer is paid. This fee is non-refundable and does not include any digital images nor products. Full payment for any digital images or product(s) is due at your Session Premiere / ordering appointment.
What type of payment do you accept and do you accept payment plans?
Cash, check or credit card are acceptable forms of payment. Payment plans are ABSOLUTELY accepted based on the Studio’s terms. For detailed payment plan information, please email to inquire.
How long will it take for me to receive my order?
Generally, orders are fulfilled within three weeks of purchase and can be personally delivered to your home.
Do you do refunds?
Due to the custom nature of any product order, refunds are not permitted. If you are unable to make your schedule session, a one-time reschedule will be allowed.
