First, we chat about what type of session fits your needs. I then email you a contract for your session and an invoice for your retainer fee. Everything can be taken care of online. Once your contract is signed and invoice is paid, your due date or session date will be added to the calendar. An online questionnaire will be sent for you to share your styling preferences.

I ask that you let me know as soon as baby is born. as long as baby was full term and everyone is healthy and healing properly, newborn sessions are scheduled around 2 weeks after birth. Newborn portraits are done in the studio only. milestone, family and maternity portraits may be photographed at an alternate location. 
Most newborn sessions last 1.5-2.5 hours. Milestone and maternity sessions are 20-30 minutes, full family sessions are one hour.

Once your milestone and family session is scheduled, we discuss any styling tips, decide on a location (studio or outdoor) and talk more about your vision for the session. 
If there are specific props for the session, those are planned as well.

one to two weeks following the session, you will return to the studio to view the gallery of lightly edited images from your session. You will be able to place your order for any digital files or printed products you choose to purchase. The images will then be edited and products ordered and ready for pickup within approximately three weeks.
