How it Works

  • Date for Session is confirmed after retainer is received
  • You will receive a confirmation email a few days before the session to discuss any last minute details
  • Please text or call any time if there are any bruises, stitches, or illness – We can reschedule if I cannot diminish scars or bruising in photoshop.  If there is illness, we will reschedule when everyone is healthy.  If a sibling is under the weather and your  newborn is healthy we can break the session into two so you can get the coveted sibling photos.
  • I usually arrive 15 minutes before the session to set up and then the fun begins!
  • For newborns (21 days and younger) please carve out 4 hours.  The session usually takes 3 hours – but better safe than sorry.  All other sessions please allow 2 hours – for the same reason.
  • After the session, you will see a sneak peek on my Blog or Facebook page (if it’s OK with you)
  • Your on-line password protected gallery will be available in 10 business days.
  • You make your purchases on-line (if you prefer you can pay by check) and your products should arrive within 7 business days from date of purchase – digitals can be downloaded right away
  • Enjoy your products – and I puffy  heart love referrals! 🙂
