ASK me ANYTHING
Choosing the right photographer for your newborn session is not an easy decision.
I am always happy to answer any questions you have. Here are the most common questions I get asked, I hope you find them helpful!
When should I book my photographer?
It's best to book your newborn photographer in your second trimester. This allows time for you to find the photographer you love and to get your baby's due date on their calendar.
How far will you travel for sessions?
I am located in Alexandria, VA, but I travel within a 30-mile radius of DC for newborn lifestyle sessions.
Where will my session take place?
All lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home! If this is not something you are comfortable with, I have a studio space available for an additional fee.
How old should my baby be for their newborn lifestyle session?
The sweet spot for newborn lifestyle sessions is 7-14 days old.
When are the sessions offered?
All newborn sessions are scheduled on weekdays between 10am-2pm, I shoot with natural light, so the light in your house will determine the best 2-hour window in that timeframe.
Will my partner and/or other children be included in the shoot?
Absolutely! A main focus of newborn lifestyle photography is capturing your whole family making beautiful memories with your new baby - this can even include well-behaved pets!
How long will the session take?
Newborn Lifestyle Sessions usually take around 2 hours. New babies can be unpredictable and I'd never want to rush a session, I am very flexible and will move at your baby's pace!
Do you provide props and blankets?
My style is very neutral and baby focused. I bring a white swaddling blanket with me.
Will I get digital files?
Yes! I deliver all final edited images through a convenient online gallery. You may use the gallery to share, download, and print the images from your session. I typically share a sneak peek a day or two after your session and the full gallery will be available within 2 weeks.
Will my session be rescheduled due to bad weather?
I rarely reschedule sessions, however, since I shoot with natural light, if it is going to be a very dark, stormy day, we will reschedule for the next closest day that works for both of us.
