Where are you located?
My professional photography studio is located in Maple Ridge, BC about 50 mins from Vancouver.
How long does a typical newborn session last?
The average newborn photography session typically lasts around 2.5 hours. Should your baby need to take a break for feeding or for extra cuddles then a session can go as long as 3 hours.
What is the best age to photograph a newborn?
I like to photograph newborns between 7 – 14 days old.
I have a 3 year old can he be included in some of the photos with the new baby?
Yes! I definitely encourage photos with any other siblings and with immediate family as well. This is all included in my pricing.
How far in advance should I book?
I am currently booking up 4-6 months in advance so the sooner the better to book to ensure you get a spot in my schedule.
How does it work with booking a newborn session?
I basically reserve your due date (with a $100 deposit) and that guarantees you a session when baby is born. I only reserve a certain amount of due dates a month as we don’t know when these little babies decide to arrive and that way I allow enough availability in my schedule for you to choose from. If you wait until after baby is born to book your session I most likely won’t have availability.
Do I need to bring any props, hats etc to the newborn session?
No , I have a huge selection of hats, headbands, wraps and props for the session. The only thing you need to bring is your beautiful baby.
I’m just interested in a maternity session only, do you offer those?
Unfortunately no. In order to have a maternity session with me you must book the maternity & newborn package.
I’m 23 weeks along, when should I schedule my maternity session?
Usually between 30 – 34 weeks along is a good time for a maternity photography session.
Do you provide dresses for the maternity session?
Yes I have a selection of over 30 dresses to choose from that you are welcome to use during your session.
