Freequently Asked Questions

How do I make sure you're there for my birthing session?

You can’t exactly schedule the moment you’re going to go into labor, now can you? For that reason, when you purchase a birthing session, I’ll be on call for the two weeks before and after your due date. When the time comes, have someone call me up and I’ll meet you at the hospital (or wherever you’re giving birth).

Do I have control over what images you take and share?
Of course. I will not take any photographs that you do not feel comfortable with. That goes for maternity, newborn and birthing sessions. Also, if you aren’t comfortable with me sharing images on social media or my blog, I certainly would not do so.
Why is it so important to do newborn photos within the first week or two?
All newborns have a certain “look” to them. Usually within a week or two, that newborn-like quality starts to disappear. The point of newborn photos is to capture that newborn look, so I always recommend photographing as early as possible.
Will you come to my home?
Absolutely. I understand that this is a hectic time for you, so I want to make your session as easy and streamlined as possible. I do prefer to photograph in a room that’s extremely well lit with natural light, so just make sure that’s available. And, of course, you can always come to my studio.
What should I wear to my maternity session?
Ultimately, what you wear depends on what you’re comfortable in. That said, I recommend clothing showcases your baby bump. Empire dresses belted under the bust and stretchy fabrics are two of my favorites. I’d avoid anything extremely loose.
When should I have my maternity photos taken?
I think some of the best maternity photos are taken between the seven and seven month mark. This is when you’re really showing, but isn’t so close to your due date that you’re really uncomfortable.
When should I schedule maternity photos?
As a general rule of thumb, I like to schedule your maternity session shortly after you’ve told friends and family the exciting news! This will give us plenty of time to find a great day that works well for both of us.
What about props for sessions?
During our initial consultation, we can discuss the props I have available and what you’d be interested in using during our shoot. For example, I have various backdrops, blankets, baskets and other items. I am also 100% open to you bringing your own props. In fact, I love it when parents have their own props! After all, using the child’s blanket instead of one that I have may prove more meaningful to you.
Where do we take the photographs?

Where we take photographs depends on the type of session we’re shooting. For maternity and gender reveal sessions, I like to do on-location, outdoor photographs that let us maximize our access to natural light. This can be in a beautiful pasture, quaint park, in the woods or even in urban settings. For newborn and milestone photographs, it’s best to choose a quiet and serene location. That typically means your home or mine, the hospital or in a quiet backyard or lightly traversed park. Birthing sessions are done in the hospital or wherever you choose to give birth.

Can my partner or child be in the photographs, too?
Of course! I love incorporating mom, dad and your other children into our session photos. While in most cases you, dad and baby will be the stars of the day, I believe it’s so important to have several photographs with the entire family — especially during my birthing, maternity and newborn sessions.
When do I schedule my milestone session dates?
You can schedule your milestone session dates as far in advance as you like. I like to get it all out of the way and schedule them all. Don’t worry — I know you’ll be busy, so I’ll send you both an email and snail mail reminder so you don’t forget your 3, 6, 9 and 12 month sessions!
What kind of photos do you take at birthing sessions?
I typically do documentary-style photographs. In other words, very little — if any — posing. Just raw emotions and moments as they happen! As for types of photographs I take during birthing session, everyone’s preferences vary. In our consultation, we can discuss what kinds of photographs you feel comfortable with and go from there. Some people want me there to document the pushing and the crying. Others prefer if I come after mom has given birth. It’s all up to you and I’m happy to photograph it all.

I have limited availability each month and am usually booked 1-2 months in advance.
