• What is the ideal age for a newborn session?
I prefer to photograph babies who are between 5 and 12 days old. Newborn babies at this age sleep more and are easier to pose, which helps the sessions run quicker and easier for you and your baby. It also allows us to achieve a wider variety of poses, often similar to those of the baby inside the womb.
• How soon should I book a session?
You should book a session as soon as you know you would like one. I will add your due date to my calendar and will plan to have your session about a week from that date. Of course, I know that due dates might change. I just ask you to notify me of any changes as soon as you can so I can accommodate my calendar to make time for you.
• Once I book a session, when do we schedule the final session date?
Once I have booked your session, I would really appreciate it if you contact me within 48 hours after delivery so we can decide what date is convenient to you and finalize your session schedule. I typically shoot on weekdays and leave weekends for my family, though some weekend sessions are available.
• Where does the session take place? How long does it take?
It really depends on the baby, but sessions typically last about three hours and take place in my home studio, located in Cary, close to the intersection of Hwy 55 and High House.
• How many pictures should I expect from your session?
The number of pictures varies depending on our “little guest” and what type of pictures the parents would like to have. If a baby is restless or finds it difficult to get off to sleep during the session, we might not get all the poses that we want. If the session includes sibling and/or parent shots, and depending on how quickly we get through these, you might get less newborn poses from your session. If you would like to schedule more time to get the most from your session, please feel free to let me know and we can work out the details for a tailored session to suit your needs.
I believe in quality over quantity. For a standard, newborn session, I generally provide a minimum of 12 beautifully processed, hand-finished pictures. I take a lot of care for each individual picture and I focus on providing a selection of high quality images rather than a large number of average ones.
• How much are your hand-finished artisanal prints?
You can buy professional, archival quality prints directly from your personal online gallery. Prices vary from $9.99 for a 4”x 6” to $107 for a 16”x 20”.
• When should I expect to see my pictures?
I generally send you a “sneak peek” within a day or two. It takes me about 3 weeks to process the rest of your pictures.
