What is included in the Session fee?


A studio newborn sessions will usually last about 2 hours and family, child and maternity sessions usually take about an hour. On-location lifestyle sessions can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. Lifestyle sessions are available within a 50 mile radius of 56345 (Little Falls, MN)

How long do sessions last?


Once you have selected your type of session (maternity, newborn, child, family…)        

I will send you an invoice for your session deposit. Session dates are not held without a paid deposit fee.
Sessions require a minimum product order (prints, digital images, albums, etc.) of $200. Once you have viewed your gallery of images and submitted your order I will invoice you and you can pay on line or by cash or check. Once all product has been paid for I will ship your order to you or you can arrange to pick it up at the studio.

How do payments work?


Digital images are not included with your session fee, they are sold separately. You may purchase single digital images or a digital collection after your images are ready for viewing/ordering. If you choose to purchase digital images you will receive a print release allowing you to print your images. I recommend Mpix for best quality and service.

Are digital images included with my session?


I do have a supply of wraps, hats, headbands and coordinating blankets. My style is neutral and baby focused.

Do you have props and blankets for the newborn session?


Yes! Your baby is a new part of your family and your family will be included in the portraits. It does extend session time, but I liked to give everyone their time in front of the camera. I like to keep the sibling and family shots relaxed but guided and less posed than a typical portrait studio.

Are siblings included in newborn and maternity portraits?


Newborns are generally very sleepy in the first few weeks. Well fed and clean babies are happy babies. I do keep the studio warm and cozy. I do a lot of swaying, swaddling and shhhing. Bring a pacifier even if your baby doesn’t tend to like it. Sometimes they just need a little to soothe. Still have questions?

How do you get baby to sleep during the session?
