Booking a Session
For every session, I invest my time, energy, technical expertise and love of the craft. My session fees cover the time and talent of the photographer.
$150 (plus tax) session fee per maternity or little ones session, and $225 (plus tax) fee per newborn session, is payable at the time of booking in order to retain my service. This session fee is non-refundable but will be applied to the balance of your digital portrait collection.
In order to get your desired time and date available, book your session as early as you can. I accept a very limited number of sessions per month so I have the time needed to perfect the quality of your images.
When to Schedule
The best time to book your maternity session is between 30 to 34 weeks, when you have a nice round belly and can still comfortably move around. I book either early morning (sunrise) or late afternoon (2 hours before sunset) for the best and most flattering lighting.
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is between 6 to 14 days (7-10 days being optimal), especially if you are interested in cute, wrapped, squishy baby poses. After two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. With that said, twins and premature babies usually need more time to reach a healthy weight. Please call me with the birth information so I can help determine the best time to schedule.
You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will then make a tentative booking. When you arrive home from hospital with your new baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
Little Ones (3 months to 5 years) sessions can be scheduled at any time. Other typical session are: Sitter (sitting on their own but before crawling – around 7 months) and Smash Cake (11-12 months).
Maternity and Little Ones
Maternity sessions are held at various locations in Palm Beach and Martin county (fields, parks, beaches, around town or your home). Please note some locations may require an additional fee for taking pictures at their facility.
Your newborn session will take place in the comfort of your own home, which makes it nice and easy for mommy and baby. I bring my studio to you including: professional lighting, backdrops, props, outfits and plenty of hand sanitizer.
What Happens After the Session
About 2 to 3 weeks after your session your gallery will be ready. At that time, I will schedule a day and time for your complimentary in-home ordering appointment to view your gallery. If you like what you see, full payment will be due and you will get the whole gallery on a flash drive at that time. Ordering prints, books and or canvases will take additional time.
Need to reschedule? Only one reschedule is permitted (unless incremental weather). Please be considerate and inform us at least 24 hours before your session.
Methods of Payment
Cash, major credit cards and Paypal. Personal checks are not accepted.
Session fees and Digital collections are not refundable.
Taking Pictures During the Session
Unfortunately, this will not be allowed. We respectfully ask you to refrain from any picture taking during your session. We understand that you or your husband, partner or kids might be very excited during the session, but with all the time and effort we spend for the pose, we reserve the creative right of the portrait art of you and your loved ones. Plus, it is distracting to you and everyone who has been posed to pay attention to two photographers at the same time. I hope you understand and respect this decision.
