I am currently pregnant, when should I book my newborn session?

It is best to contact me prior to baby's arrival, All I need is your EDD to hold your session. Once I receive your retainer I will block out a few dates surrounding your due date to ensure we get baby in as soon as possible.


When is the best time to bring my baby in for pictures?

I prefer to photograph babies within the first 10 days of life. I always suggest as soon as mom is up for it and everyone is settled at home, call me to confirm a date for your session.


Do you only photograph newborns and babies?

No, I pride myself as a family photographer 'specializing in newborns'. I love being able to document your family at every stage in life! Engagement photos, maternity, birth, newborns, baby's first year, sibling photos, senior portraits, the list goes on and on! (view my galleries tab for samples of my work)


What comes with your sessions? How much does it cost?

Two very good questions that I hear often. Packages vary depending on what type of session you are looking for, you can find both of these answers under my Info tab.


How long does it take to receive our gallery and/or photographs?

Editing time and processing of prints may vary. You can generally expect to view your completed gallery within 2-3 weeks after your session takes place. Digital images (files) will be available for download instantly after checking out.  Delivery of photos and packages can be expected 1-2 weeks after you have chosen the images through your online gallery.


Will you take my family's pictures outside?

Of course I will! I have a list of outdoor locations to choose from or if you have a specific location in mind, I am always open to suggestions. 


Do you have a studio?

Yes, I have a natural light studio located in Downtown Joliet, Il. (photos of my studio can be found under galleries)


Do you have props or do I have to bring my own?

I have a HUGE selection of props to choose from at my studio. Majority of what you see here on my website is here for you to use! If you have something specific in mind, please feel free to bring an item from home to your session.


What if my baby is older than two weeks? Will you still take their photos?

The answer is YES!! I am not one of those photographer's who turn away older babies. While I do love a good sleepy freshie, I'll happily book 'older newborns'. Sometimes they sleep even better than brand new babies!


Will you come to my home for the session?

Yes, I love doing lifestyle photography in the comfort of your family's home, makes your session much more personal. I will also travel for your newborn session bringing an assortment of props from my collection with me. (some travel fees may apply)


Can some of our photos be delivered in both color and black and white?

Images delivered in b&w are NOT available in color. I try to provide a good mixture of edits but if you prefer more images in color please let me know ahead of time.
