Frequently Asked Photography Questions 

  • How do I book a session with you?

    It's super easy...shoot me an email or give me a call. I do ask that you book EARLY! During the busy season (summer and fall) I can be booked a few weekends in advance. I will work with you to find out exactly what type of session you want, and from there we will select a date. The location and times will be determined a few weeks before the session date. 

  • What are your fees?

    Session fees range from $200-$350 (this does not include digital files or products). I offer a full range of products that include digital images, prints, accordion mini's and customized announcement/holiday cards. There is no minimum purchase of products.

  • What is in your bag?

    I am a NIKON girl! I shoot with a Nikon D800! The lens I always have in my bag are my 50 mm 1.4, 24-70 2.8 and 105 macro! I am a natural light photographer but I do sometimes use my light disc reflector. 

  • How long is a photo session?

    Photo sessions range in time for a number of reasons but you should expect an average of 45 minutes to 1 hour for child/family sessions and 2 to 3 hours for newborn sessions. 

  • Do you shoot weddings?

    No, I do not shoot weddings. Weddings are a whole other ball game that I like to leave up to the professional wedding photographers. I'd be happy to refer you to a wedding photographer if that is what you are interested in. I do LOVE to shoot engagement sessions though! 

  • What is the best time for a maternity session?

    I recommend a maternity session be scheduled around 30-34 weeks. I want you to be comfortable enough to be out-and-about and also want that big round belly! Let's set up a date during your second trimester. 

  • What is the best time for a newborn session?

    The best time to capture those sleepy, curled up poses are the first 1-10 days of life. I understand that some babies are not home yet in that time frame, so I will always work around the time in which you are home and settled into your new life. Contact me in your second trimester. 

  • What should I wear and how should I prepare for a session?

    Once a session is scheduled, we will go over all the details. I will suggest wardrobe ideas for the whole family as well as give you ideas on what to bring to the shoot. I will alleviate all the stresses for you! 

  • Do you offer gift certificates?

    Yes; of course! I'd be happy to mail one to you or to the lucky recipient. Gift Certificates come filled out and gift wrapped! 

  • Do you photograph events?

    No, I no longer photograph events.

  • What if it rains the day of our outdoor session?

    We will reschedule. We will both look at our calendars and choose the earliest date we both have available.

  • When do you schedule photo sessions?

    At this time, I shoot a majority of the sessions on the weekends. I also love to book weekday evenings (spring through fall) about 60-70 minutes before the sun sets - The Golden Hour - 

  • Do you have a studio?

    Yes, I have an in-home natural light studio. I use the studio for newborn, cake smash and customized children's sessions.

  • Do you offer Cake Smash Sessions?

    YES! These are one of my favorite sessions to capture! Cake smash sessions are held in my natural light in-home studio (see some here). I provide a customized backdrop and a Giant Cupcake made by Sassy Cakes. Contact me to today with your theme and let's get planning!  

  • Do you travel?

    Yes. There is a fee of $25. for every 25 miles away from zip code 07508. If you have a specific location in mind, let's chat! I love new locations!
