Booking A Session With Us

Wondering what to expect when booking with us?

Our Process

first things first

You’ll choose between a signature or petite session, select your desired date (between 28-32 weeks for a maternity session, or your due date for a newborn session) and an invoice and portrait agreement will be emailed to you. Your session date is reserved once the payment and portrait agreement are received. 

Design Consultation

Once you’ve had a chance to look over the welcome guide and get an idea of the products and collections that are available, we’ll have a design call to finalize the details of your session and select your collection or a la carte items. For in-home newborn sessions, at this point, I will need some information about the location I’ll be setting up to plan accordingly. This can take place over zoom/facetime/messenger or your home if local, and tends to be pretty brief since so much is covered in the guide, but please ask away if I missed something.

Portrait Selection and Payment

After you choose your portrait package, you’ll have a few options for payment, such as our in-house interest-free automatic payment plan leading up to your session (with automated incremental payments for up to 6 months). We also offer PayPal credit, which allows you to make interest free purchases for 6 months upon approval by them (please check with PayPal for their terms). And of course, we accept all major credit cards and cash. Clients can either prepay for the small album, or jump right to a collection or other a la carte item. With any choice, you can upgrade at any time leading up to your session.

Portrait Session

Where the magic happens!

Retouching • Viewing • selecting

Clients love that photos can be viewed same day over zoom! By this point, your portraits will already be purchased, so all that will be left to do is select which ones will be printed where. Of course, you’re free to upgrade your package at this point if you wish, too. During our call I’ll show you an album design that you can approve or we can make changes while we chat, and wall art, shown to scale on your very own walls. Images are not retouched at this point, as newborn editing can take some time to get perfect.

Product pickup

Your photos are an investment and an heirloom that should not be rushed. Please allow up to 6 weeks for your order to be completed. Please expect a slight delay with albums from mid-fall through the holiday season. If you’re local, I’ll reach out as soon as everything is available for pickup. Otherwise, your portraits will be shipped to you. If digitals are included in your package, they will be delivered in an online gallery 2 weeks after your session.

Enjoy your beautiful portraits!
