How will I receive my finished images & when will they be ready?
We use a program called “Shootproof” which allows us to digitally upload your images in full high resolution to be instantly delivered to you, no need to wait for a disk/USB, once you receive your Shootproof gallery invite you can instantly share with friends & family. Once a date has been reserved for your session, your photographer will contact you to also schedule an in person meeting to discuss all the details of your session (Skype or FaceTime if you are visiting our lovely city) to include wardrobe ideas, locations and review the online process of choosing your images & downloading. Three days after your session you will receive an invitation to view your proofing gallery where you will be making your final decisions on your favorite images. The time it takes to deliver the final images will mostly depend on how quickly you choose your images, the entire process for final gallery delivery typically takes an average of 4 weeks. Print orders 1-2 weeks from final gallery delivery. Event photography to include weddings & quinceañeras work differently. Please contact us for details.

When should I get maternity photos taken?
The best time for maternity pictures is when you feel good and are still feeling comfortable. We recommend that our clients schedule their maternity photo session for when they are 27 to 34 weeks into their pregnancy. During this time, your belly will start to be nice and round and generally will not have dropped down too far yet which makes your belly appear higher. Generally, the 7th or 8th month works for most soon-to-be-moms. However, since every woman and pregnancy is different, this may not work for you. The best time for a maternity session still depends on you and how you are feeling. If you schedule your photoshoot at the last minute or around your due date, you may find that you start to feel uncomfortable and tired. Try to be mindful that babies sometimes make an unexpected “early” arrival. I have had past clients miss out on capturing their pregnancy due to their baby arriving a few weeks early so I find it’s always best to be prepared!
High Risk Pregnancies:
Though most high-risk pregnancies go smoothly, the end of the second trimester is the best window to book your maternity photos.
When should I take my newborn photos & what to expect?
Newborns are best photographed within the first 14 days of life. Therefore reserving sessions prior to due date is recommended. If your newborn arrives early or late, I will work to reschedule your session as early as possible. It is important to capture all the newness of your baby. They have tiny, clenched hands and newborn curl. During your newborn session, time is allotted for breaks, keeping a relaxed mood for everyone concerned. Newborn photography is such a lovely aspect of my work. As your newborn photographer my goal is to create wonderful portraits of your newborn within an environment which is relaxing and enjoyable.
* deposits are different for weddings and mini session specials. Please contact me for details.
*A contract is required for all sessions and will be provided to you electronically at time of booking.
