Answers

Q: What should my child wear?
A:
Most of the time you are sure to have a nice looking photograph when wearing solid colors - No stripes or patterns. However, if you are attached to a particularly cute outfit that doesn't fit that criteria - feel free to bring it. I have a white backdrop that looks great with just about anything when the photo is in color. Bring a couple of outfits to choose from and I'll help you pick if you are still unsure or can't decide...better safe than sorry.

Q: How long does the sitting take?
A:
Each sitting takes between 45-60 minutes - babies don't usually last that long and sometimes a short break is in order for smaller children. The time is flexible, we will definitely take more pictures and time if needed.

Q: When will my pictures be ready?
A:
Please allow up to 2 weeks for your pictures to be edited and processed. I will call you when they are complete and then you can come pick up your package. If you are feeling anxious, feel free to call me and I will try to give you a more specific time table. I can generally work around rushes for a small fee. If you would like your package shipped to your home, add $5.00 for shipping.

Q: Can I bring a change of clothes for my children?
A:
Absolutely! We may not have time for more than 2 or 3 different outfits since each sitting only lasts an hour, so we'll start with your favorite.

Q: When is the best time to photograph newborns?
A:
If you are going for the brand new baby look, make your appointment before the baby comes and try to get here 1-2 weeks after the birth. Most newborns get really cute between 4-6 weeks, so that's a good time as well. Again, make your appointment 1-2 weeks in advance. If you plan to be in the pictuers as well, wear black long sleeved shirts for the best looking results!
