A Simple and Easy Process for Busy Parents and Parents-to-Be

how it works

Step 1

BOOK YOUR SESSION

Fill out the contact form to find out about availability and to schedule your session on your preferred date/time. Your session will be booked with payment of the Session Creative Fee and signed online Portrait Agreement.

Once booked, you’ll receive a link to an online client portal and a Session Planning Guide, so you’ll be fully prepared before your session day.

Step 2

YOUR SESSION DAY

On the day of your session, we’ll meet at a beautiful park, at my studio, or at your home. We’ll spend a little time together chatting and laughing but mostly taking pictures of you and your loved ones.

Depending on the session you choose, we’ll be together for about 1-3 hours.

After the session, I’ll be busy working hard behind the scenes, culling down and editing only the best of the best images for your online gallery (usually around 50-65).

Step 3

CREATE YOUR COLLECTION

Choosing your collection is all done from the comfort of your home. There’s no need to come back for an ordering appointment.

Once you receive the link to your online slideshow preview, you’ll have 48 hours to view it as often as you want.

During that time, you’ll choose between 3 Digital Collections; each containing a set amount of digital images and gift print credit to your gallery store.

You can download your digital files immediately while the gallery store will remain open for 30 days giving you time to use your print credit on gift prints, framed prints, wall art, cards, albums, and more!

Where you print matters

 

All prints, albums, and wall art purchased through the online gallery store are printed through Professional Print Labs which offers the highest quality printed artwork to preserve your memories for years to come.

Prints are printed on high-quality archival paper that is coated to protect and preserve your images from UV-ray damage and fingerprint oils. This ensures your images stay intact for many years and can be passed down through the generations.

Images are edited on a calibrated monitor and are calibrated to the print labs printer to ensure color accuracy and consistency to retain the correct color balance, exposure, and contrast.

The quality and lifespan of images printed through a 3rd party lab (i.e.: online services and drugstores) cannot be guaranteed.

 

Session Fees, Digital Collections, and Artwork purchased are subject to MN Sales Tax. Prices are subject to change without notice. Due to the nature of custom portrait photography, all sales are final.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I reserve my newborn portrait session?

My availability fluctuates and I take a limited number of sessions each month, so I highly recommend reaching out to me in your 2nd trimester to reserve a spot on my calendar.

 

What is the best age to photograph a newborn?

Studio newborn sessions are best done in the first 2 weeks after delivery. Lifestyle newborn sessions can be done anytime in the first 2 months.

What if I deliver my baby early, or late?

No need to worry. The date reserved for your newborn portrait session is flexible. I shoot 7 days a week and can always adjust my schedule to make sure we get your session in within the first 2 weeks after delivery.

What is the best age to photograph an older baby?

Baby milestone sessions can occur at any age and time in their first year. I recommend having photographs taken at the most significant milestones, the "sitter" stage around 7 months, and their first birthday.

Do you take family portraits?

I do! But these sessions are reserved for clients returning to me after an initial newborn or baby portrait session.

When is the best time for pregnancy photos?

Maternity photo sessions take place between 28-34 weeks. Around that time you'll have a nice-sized baby belly, but shouldn't be too uncomfortable yet. Often times swelling kicks in in the last month of pregnancy, so it's best to have your photos taken before 36 weeks.

What should I wear to my photo shoot?

Pinterest is a great resource for what-to-wear guides! This is a personal choice and preference, however, this is what I recommend:

 

  • wear what's comfortable in solid colors and simple patterns
  • avoid matching outfits; instead, coordinate with 2-3 colors
  • avoid shirts with logos or writing on them
  • long dresses/pants look best
Can I bring props to my portrait session?

Yes, absolutely! I encourage the use of props if they're meaningful to you. Ultrasound photos, baby shoes, and books can personalize your maternity photos.

Knitted blankets and outfits given as gifts or passed down to your baby can add special meaning to newborn photos and baby photos.

Otherwise, in my posed newborn sessions, I provide all of the props based on my style in your choice of colors.

What if I need to cancel my portrait session?

As a mom, I understand that things come up; illness and unplanned events happen in life. No, worries. Your session can be rescheduled to another date and time that works for both of us.

What can I buy with the Gallery Store Credit?

The Gallery Store Credit you receive with your Digital Image Collection can be looked at as a gift certificate or coupon to be used in your online gallery store towards gift prints, wall art, albums, and more.

With the Petite and Classic Collections, you can buy additional digital files if you don't want any tangible products.
