BOOKING A SESSION

In order to get your desired time and date available, book your session as early as you can. My schedule is often booked 4 – 8 weeks in advance. I accept a very limited number of sessions per month so I have the time needed to perfect the quality of your images.

$150 retainer deposit per session (maternity, newborn or baby) is payable at the time of booking in order to retain my service. This fee is non-refundable if you cancel your session. This retainer is non-refundable and will be credited to the collection you choose.


WHEN TO SCHEDULE A SESSION?

NEWBORN
Because babies rarely arrive on their ACTUAL due dates, it is best to book as far in advance so I can add your estimated due date to my calendar and secure availability.  Pre-booking also allows you to prepare for the session ahead of time, such as planning the set-ups, poses, wardrobes, etc., and communicating to me your overall vision for your session BEFORE your new bundle of joy arrives. When your baby arrives, please contact me as soon as possible so we can secure a date within three weeks of your baby’s birth. The exception—if you know your c-section or induction date the session date can be booked in advance. My calendar fills up quickly and I try my best to leave spaces open for last minute newborns. Every effort will be made to accommodate newborns under 21 days old; however, if you contact me after baby is born, availability cannot be guaranteed. 

  • Why does newborn photos have to be taken in these first two weeks?  Newborns change dramatically in the first weeks of life. When they are first born, they are able to bend and curl up into these sweet little poses, mimicking how they lived inside the womb. All these amazing characteristics will begin to disappear after a few short weeks.
  •  What if my newborn is older than two weeks?  It’s not too late to get newborn photos!—I shoot newborns up to three months old. However, know that the older the baby is, the less likely she will look or pose like a newborn but I will still get nice images from the photo session.  A baby older than two weeks has developed further along so their ligaments have strengthened. Because of this, they may not be able to tolerate some (or even most) of the “curled up” newborn poses. They are more alert and less likely to sleep through pose changes so the session will have less variety of poses. Your newborn will usually need to be swaddled for much of the session to keep their arms from flailing. For newborns older than two weeks, we will focus on wrapped baby, open-eyes and parent/sibling shots.


BABY
Baby sessions can be scheduled at any time. 4 – 8 months of age is a great time for portraits because babies can support their head while on their tummy &/or sit up confidently and have so many adorable expressions. Sitting sessions are a popular way to commemorate this milestone in your baby's first year!​


LOCATION
Your newborn session will take place in my home studio in Langley, BC. Maternity, Baby and 1-Yr Celebration session can be in the studio, or at an outdoor location for an additional $150 fee (this fee covers any park permit, travel and assistant costs).

HOW LONG WILL A SESSION TAKE?
Newborn session can take up to 4 hours to accommodate feeding, soothing, and diaper change times. Baby and maternity sessions are 1.5 – 2 hours. It is recommended that only those who are to be photographed (immediate family members only) be present during your session.
