When should we book our newborn session?
Anytime. But I only book a limited number of newborn sessions per month and those slots can book up pretty fast. I advise my parents to book during their second trimester to ensure I have availability. But if you are late in the game, no worries, contact me and I'll see how I can accommodate you.
What do I do to book a newborn session?
Simple. Contact me by email and we will chat and discuss your needs and how I can help you achieve them.
Where is your studio located?
I work out of a dedicated studio space in my home located in North East Grand Rapids, MI. My space is deep cleaned before and after each session to ensure the utmost safety for all of my tiniest clients.
Do you provide props for the sessions?
Yes, most definitely! My in home studio is stocked with various props and everything that is needed to create an amazing gallery. I do however love to include a family heirloom if it is appropriate to use for the session. We can discuss all of this before your session.
Petite/Micro vs Full Newborn Session:
During a petite/micro session only simple poses are used while the baby is wrapped. It's a very good way to get beautiful images of your baby and not spend hours in the studio. You'll be presented with a gallery of gorgeous images to select your favorite products from. Parents, and siblings are welcome to join in during the Petite Newborn Session only.
Full sessions last are longer than the petite/micro sessions. Multiple setups are used and time is spent on more complicated poses and setups. Full sessions also allow for parents, and siblings to be included in.
What is the Unscripted Newborn session?
Unscripted newborn session focuses strictly on the baby without props and with very minimal posing. It incorporates parent's hands holding baby capturing special connections. These sessions are done on a white background and are delivered in black & white.
Do you work during the week or weekends?
I take on a limited amount of sessions a month. I schedule sessions Monday -Saturday. Weekend dates are on a first come first serve basis. It is recommended that you book early if you prefer a weekend date.
What do I wear to my maternity session?
We can totally talk about your wardrobe. I'll do my best to provide suggestions that fits your vision with the location and style of your maternity session in mind. I also offer, and encourage my clients to use the dresses in my carefully curated, client closet for their session. All dresses in my client closet are specially selected for their ability to fit a wide range of sizes.
