How long will it take to get my pictures?

Depending on the session, turn around will be around 2 weeks (senior pictures 3-4 weddings 6).  Then you will have your fully edited pictures on a USB, with a shared copyright allowing you to print them.

Can I have the unedited pictures?

Sorry I never give pictures straight from the camera form. No exceptions.

Can I view my pictures before in a gallery?

Yes!  New feature will be to have a coded gallery up.  Here you will be able to share all your pictures with family, and pick any you would like to order from me for print.

Whats In Your Bag?

I shoot with a Canon 5DMarkII.  My go to len’s: Canon 50 mm 1.8 and a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8, Canon 70-200mm

Do you travel?

I am available for a limited amount of travel.  There would be fee’s attached depending on when and where.

What can I expect in a newborn session?

I take newborn pictures withing the first two weeks, ideally in the first 7 days.  In this stage they are so much easier to move and get back to sleep and get those wonderful sweet sleepy baby pictures.

I can come directly to your home bringing with me props and backdrops.  I suggest you have any outfits and headbands you might want ready.  Expect that it can take anywhere from 3-4 hours since babies are constantly needing comfort and attention.  Have diapers and burp cloths ready for spit up and pooping, these thing are BOUND to happen!

Raise the temperature in your house so the baby is comfortable when naked.  I bring with me a noise maker, and space heater also to help keep the baby comfortable.  Feed the baby 15 min before our set time and have him/her naked with a loose fitting diaper on so they are ready even if they are asleep.

What can I expect if I choose to do a birth story?

This remains mainly up to you.  How much you are comfortable with or want pictures of.  Some people are interested in the before and after leaving the actual labor more private.  Others want the actual labor including the full process.  I have done both and will be happy to be there for however much or little you want. You may have to check with your hospital to make sure their rules are known for photography during the actual labor.

The pictures are all in Black and White.  Birth stories are some of my absolute favorite to do!  They do require a deposit 1 month ahead mostly because I am like a Dr. on call for a week.  I block of the week surrounding your birth, if for some crazy reason I miss the birth the deposit is fully refundable.  However if you cancel on me after I have blocked off scheduling other sessions it will be non refunded.

Can I schedule a mini session? And What do I get

Mini sessions are only set by me in blocks of time.  Usually for holiday pictures, or back to school pictures, and most often for children only.
