How it Works
To help create your dream session, we’ll schedule a complimentary design consultation (in-person or zoom). We'll go over wardrobe, props and ideas for your session, as well as all the beautiful options we offer for printing your photos, with detailed pricing.
We’ll handle all the details so you can relax and enjoy your session. We’ve got every baby prop you could imagine, plus a client closet for moms, babies, and even some dresses for big sisters.
The Big Reveal!
Get excited - it’s time to see all the beautifully edited images from your session! Choose from wall art, an album, prints, digital images, or all of the above.
“I really do not have words to express how magnificent was this experience. Laura is so sweet, helpful, nice, and at the same time so professional. To add to all of this, the final work is just incredible.”
A professional photoshoot is a perfect way to commemorate the time you’ve spent with your baby before they arrive in the world. Though it may not always feel like it, you’re going to miss this magical time when you were growing your baby in your belly. That’s why...
Are you planning to you welcome a new little one into your life this year? Searching for the best or most important products to pick up can be downright overwhelming. Especially if it’s your first kiddo! We thought we’d save you some time by putting together this list...
I have a shelf full of framed family photos at my home. My youngest granddaughter Lennox is about to turn two, and recently she has become interested in the photos - she wants to be held up to see them, and enjoys pointing at each one. As I held her and...
You Might Be Wondering
When should I book my session?
It’s best to book while you are still pregnant. As early as the start of your second trimester is not too early! We only take a limited number of sessions per month in order to assure that the babies we commit to are able to be photographed in their first two weeks of life. When you book while still pregnant, we set a tentative session date based on your due date, then keep in touch to adjust as needed. Once baby is born we confirm the date.
With that said, if your baby is already born, please go ahead and contact us. We do sometimes have last-minute openings, and we’ll do our best to get you in as soon as possible. Babies that are over two weeks old will still have gorgeous images, they just may or may not be able to do the traditional sleepy newborn posing. It very much depends on each individual baby. We will always try to get them to sleep and pose them, assuming that’s what you want, and we are often successful with older babies. If they remain awake and alert, we will do more wrapped images in bowls and buckets and with fluffy furs. We can get some stunning images with open eyes!
What should I wear?
We have a client wardrobe with gowns to fit both expecting and new moms, plus some choices for little girls up to about 4T. Or you’re welcome to wear your own clothing. We offer a complimentary design consultation, and this is part of what we talk about. I’m happy to help you plan outfits for you and your family. Also, in the days before the session, clients will often text me photos of clothing they’re considering, and I’ll weigh in on how colors and styles will coordinate and photograph.
If you’re scheduling a baby session, we have a great selection of cute outfits for babies between 3-12 months to be photographed in!
How long will the session last?
Maternity sessions are typically up to an hour. Newborn sessions can range from 2-3 hours, depending on if we’re photographing baby alone or including family and siblings.
What is your pricing?
The next step in our process is a complimentary design consultation (can be in-person or over zoom). We’ll make plans for your session and show you an array of beautiful albums, wall art and prints as well as digital options, so you can shop and plan out exactly what you’ll spend on your session.
Nothing else is due until your ordering appointment, which will be scheduled about a week after your session. You’ll see all your beautifully edited images and make your purchase at that appointment. Most clients spend $750-$1500+ on a combination of digital and printed products.
What precautions are you taking against Covid-19?
Safety is, and has always been, our top priority. As well as being skilled and experienced in safe newborn handling and posing, we are sticklers for sanitation. We always wipe down hard surfaces and props with disinfectant, and we launder blankets, wraps and other soft props that touch baby’s skin after every session. We even have a UV sanitizing cabinet for small non-launderable props. We do only one newborn session a day. Even though my assistant and I are now both fully vaccinated against Covid-19, we are still happy to wear masks for client contact as requested.
