When to book your newborn session…
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age. After two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will then make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.

Where your session is held…
Your session will take place in my studio in Adairsville, Georgia; unless you've scheduled an on location Senior or Family Session then those will take place within 30 mile radius of 30103.

How long will your session take...
Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, allowing enough time for feeding and comforting. Other Sessions can take 2 hours allowing enough time for outfit and set changes. Baby and Toddler Sessions typically last about 90 minutes, though we allow up to 2 hours. Seniors and Family Sessions are on location and last up to 3 hours.

Props and what to bring...

During your planning consultation, we'll have a good look at my extensive collections of quality silk flowers, handmade wardrobe of headbands and hats, handcrafted props by local artists, and a unique variety of vintage props from around the country and pick pieces you would like included in the styling. I also provide a large selection of blanket backdrops, paper backdrops, and flooring options to create a truly customized look for you images. If there is any thing special to you that you would like included, feel free to bring it to your session; I'll make a point to get it into the session.  

What parents should wear...

Dress comfortably with light knit fabrics. The studio is about 75 degrees during the session, this creates the right environment for your baby stay cozy and sleepy. Of course for older babies, toddlers, and children the studio is a bit cooler...but still be comfy!

Rescheduling...

Sessions may be rescheduled due to illness or injury. If you need to reschedule, please contact me as soon as possible on 678-308-7141. If you suspect your baby is unwell, please do not proceed with the session and reschedule for another time. There is no charge to reschedule due to illness or injury, however, a second reschedule will result in a $300 deposit required which will be credited towards your print order.
