Q: I’m pregnant and wondering how do I know when to schedule my baby’s session for since I don’t know when exactly he’ll arrive? It is actually best to schedule your session while still pregnant to ensure my availability around your due date. Once your deposit is received I will pencil down your due date. We won’t finalize the actual date/time for the session until after I hear of baby’s birth.
Q: I just came across your website and just recently had my baby! Do you offer any sessions for last minute schedulers? Newborns are best photographed prior to 2 weeks of age. If your baby is less than 2 weeks old, please contact me! A lot of times I do have some flexibility in my calendar and can fit you in! I will try my best to accommodate you if at all possible.
Q: When do newborn sessions take place? Newborn sessions are scheduled between 4-14 days new. Newborns this young are more tolerant of being “curled” and posed and remain sleepy for the duration of the session. Almost all of the “sleepy newborn” shots you see here on the website are of babies 2 weeks old or younger. If your baby is older than 2 weeks old, don’t worry, we can still capture beautiful photos, it will likely just take more work and effort on our part and we may need to skip some of the poses you see here.
Q: How long does a session last? Depending on your session choice, anywhere from 1-3 hours, usually.
Q: Do I need to buy the hats and props and bring them with me? I always tell my clients all you have to bring is your baby! 🙂 I supply all the hats, wraps, headbands, blankets, etc. Feel free, however, to bring any special heirloom or personal item along with you that you wish to be incorporated.
Q: Can siblings and parents be included in a few images? Absolutely! There is no additional cost for this. I try and do these images at the very end of the session, so I ask that anyone that is not mom or dad and wanting to be included with the baby in some images to come the last 30-60 minutes of the session. The session does last a while and little ones will get bored sitting around my studio for so long. (Mine would too!) 🙂
Q: Can I request a certain pose I’ve seen on another website? Sure! This is your session and I aim to provide my clients with what they want! There are, however, certain poses that I feel are unsafe and could pose harm to the baby and I will not do those.
Q: Do you offer any other sessions for older children or families? I specialize in newborn photography and offer sessions regularly for newborns and babies up to 1 year old. I do offer sessions for families a couple of times a year. I also offer maternity sessions when scheduled along with a newborn session.
Q: Where is your studio? My studio is in my hometown of Chouteau, OK which is approx. 20 minutes east of Tulsa.
