General Questions

How long until I get my edited photos?
Following your photoshoot, we select the best images for artistic editing. We devote time to carefully compare hundreds of photos from your shoot and select only those that meet our standards. These final images are individually processed and enhanced, which usually takes two weeks.
Do the package options include prints and digital files?
You’ll get your artistically edited images with full resolution and social media size in all of our sessions. Our packages don’t include prints, but you can purchase them as an add-on after the digital delivery. Or print them on your own (full printing rights included).
Where does the photoshoot session take place?
Our sessions could occur in our home studio, outdoors, and your location. Depending on the type of session you get.
Is there parking available in the studio?
Yes, there is plenty of street parking in front of our home studio, and our location has easy access from the I-95 highway.
Are props included?
Yes, props are included in our package options but vary depending on your selection. Our studio props range from backdrops, clothing, and balloon garlands to complete custom decors. We’ll discuss this during the planning phase.
Can I have all the photos you take?
It isn’t possible to get all the taken images. I’ll choose and edit the best photos to present to you. Trust me; I’m not hiding amazing pictures on the hard drive. My heart skips a beat when I see a fantastic photo.
How many outfits can I wear for my session?
It depends on the package you have purchased. For studio sessions: we will photograph 2 – 4 outfit changes. For outdoor sessions: one outfit, as changing wardrobe outdoors is not the easiest thing, instead of outfit changes. The outdoor session focuses on location and family bonds.
How long is the photoshoot session?
It depends on the type of session you buy. Our pricing page indicates the estimated time each particular session might take.
What should I wear for the session?
Clothing: wear clothes that don’t wrinkle easily. For kids, avoid clothes that you’ll have to keep adjusting. If a shirt is too short to stay tucked in, reconsider that option. Shoes: try casual shoes in neutral colors. You could wear sneakers too if that’s your style. Colors: Wear solid colors that go with your skin color; You might try white, cream, black, neutrals, or pastels. If you need help with styling, feel free to reach me, and I’ll be happy to help.
How should I prepare for the session?
We suggest avoiding too much makeup, dark eyeshadows, and highlighting on the skin for moms. Generally, keep a natural and clean look. You want to hydrate yourself well, and eating a light snack before the session would give you plenty of energy for the photoshoot session. We recommend selecting a day when you are most likely to be well-rested and relaxed because stress could negatively impact the session results.

Smash Cake Questions

When is the best time to book a smash cake session?
The best time to book your baby’s session is 3-4 weeks before their birthday. That timeframe will give us enough time to process and edit the images for the birthday on time.
Are props and decoration included for smash cake sessions?
Yes, they are included for this session type in the studio. We will discuss a theme for the decoration unique to your baby’s likes during the planning phase. The in-studio decoration could combine backdrops, balloons, garlands, and many other options.
Does a smash cake session include the cake?
No, you will need to bring the cake. It’s usually one that blends in with the decoration.

Newborn Questions

When is the best time to book your newborn session?
The best time to reserve your newborn session is during your pregnancy and the ideal time to photograph your newborn is between their 6-10 days. That’s when they are sleepy, and we can get those lovely curly poses. We will reserve a tentative booking date based on your due date and wait to hear from you when you arrive home from the hospital to reconfirm.
Is it safe to bring my newborn to your studio?
Yes, your newborn’s safety is critical for us. The studio is impeccably clean, and all of the clothing, wraps, and props are adequately cleaned and sterilized between uses. I’m up-to-date on immunizations, flu shots, COVID-19 shots, and guidelines. We take every precaution working with your precious new baby. Be assured your baby will be in safe surroundings and hands.
What should I bring to the newborn session?
Milk: If you’re breastfeeding, you are good to go. But, you might also want to consider bringing any supplementary milk bottles for feeding. Food: Bring a snack and water for yourself and the family. Everyone needs to be relaxed and well-fed! Diapers and wipes: They are always helpful. Pacifiers: They are handy between posing. Your baby may become a bit fussy, and it’s crucial to minimize this and maximize the baby’s comfort. Entertainment: The photoshoot can be long and tiring. If siblings are coming, bring some entertainment for them. Extra clothes: bring at least one spare change of clothing, especially if you want to hold your nude baby in photos. There’s a 50% chance you’ll get a mess on you for those. Furthermore, bring a brush if the newborn has hair.
Can I circumcise my newborn before the session?
We strongly suggest not booking a session within five days of your baby’s circumcision. We will be tightly swaddling your boy naked in wraps and delicate fabrics. The fabrics are soft; however, a fresh circumcision is fragile and often uncomfortable for newborns. When we wrap and unwrap and change his position or pose, the circumcision can become further irritated, making an unhappy newborn difficult to photograph.
Do you do outdoor sessions for newborns?
Yes, there are a few things to consider when choosing an outdoor session for a newborn. If you pick a beach or downtown, you will have to travel to that location, and leaving home with a new baby can be challenging. We don’t have control over the weather, so we need to plan accordingly. With that said, you get to go outside for some fresh air at a time where you don’t seem to have enough time even to breathe. Our outdoor session approach is a lifestyle genre of newborn photography and has a significant focus on family connection; many of the poses are done in parents’ or siblings’ arms. Perhaps you would like to have some images are taken where you both met or your favorite park. Please note we charge a travel fee of $1.5 per mile from the studio (06512).
Do you do in-home sessions for newborns?
Yes, our approach to in-home newborn sessions is a mix of studio photography and lifestyle photography. We bring studio lighting for photos of baby alone and fill light for family photos, but if your home has beautiful natural light, that’s always a plus. In-home newborn sessions have an extra $250 fee plus a travel fee of $1.5 per mile from the studio (06512).

Maternity Questions

When is the best time to book a maternity session?
The best time for maternity photography is around 26-32 weeks. In those weeks, women have a lovely full and round shape. It is also the perfect time when you will not feel uncomfortable and won’t be too bloated as in the very last weeks of your pregnancy. For mothers carrying multiples, the recommendation is to have the session during 25-29 weeks.
Do the sessions include makeup, hair, and nails?
They aren’t included in the session packages. We’ll be happy to recommend other professionals who can help you with those tasks if needed. Remember that a maternity session is more than just a photoshoot. It’s a day of well-deserved pampering. Spoil yourself with a manicure, hair blowout, and professional makeup session. Soft natural, pastel colors always look great, especially for the close-up shots.
What should I wear for maternity photos?
Some pregnant moms prefer to embrace their changing bodies and capture artistic nude or semi-nude portraits, while others opt for more subtle, fully clothed outfits. For fully clothed outfits, we recommend using fitting and stretchy fabrics. Having accessories that you feel might be fun to try is always a good idea. However, keep the jewelry to a minimum as they tend to create photo distractions. If you are in doubt, bring them along. The worst thing that could happen is not to use them. Typically several clothing changes allow us to capture different looks, so we encourage you to bring extra outfits to your session. In addition to your clothing, we usually use a combination of fabrics wrapped around your body to cover or uncover your belly.
Where will my maternity session take place?
The maternity portrait sessions usually take place in our studio or outdoors. We recommend our indoor studio for more intimate sessions as this gives you privacy, acclimated environments, and controlled lighting conditions.
What to avoid for a maternity session?
Try not to wear tight underwear on the day of your session. Arrive at your photoshoot in loose clothing to prevent body marks. Avoid too much makeup, dark eyeshadows, and highlighting on the skin. Keep it more natural and clean.
What should I bring to the maternity session?

Makeup for quick retouches in between set-ups
Hairbrush
Body lotion
Snacks and water
Spare clothes: bring at least one change of clothing for the family, just in case.
Entertainment: If siblings are coming, bring some entertainment for them.
