Frequently asked questions
What type of sessions do you offer?
I photograph maternity, newborn, babies and children of all ages, families and communion portraits on Long Island. If you are looking for event and wedding photography or boudoir, I will be happy to refer some great photographers to you.
How soon should I book my maternity and newborn sessions?
I recommend that you book your session as soon as you decide that you want me to photograph you and your new baby. Maternity sessions are done between 30-36 weeks and newborns are typically photographed within their first 2 weeks of life. I only take on a certain number of sessions due to the unpredictability of newborn arrivals.
Do you offer a discount if I book both a maternity and a newborn session with you?
Yes, I do! I offer up to $50 off your newborn session when you also do a maternity session with me.
If my baby is already born, can we still book you for our session?
Of course! Although it is best to be set up on my calendar prior to baby’s arrival, I often have room for last minute newborns. Babies are rarely born on time and may arrive earlier or later than due dates, leaving extra room in my schedule.
What if my baby is older than 2 weeks old?
Although babies become more and more alert and awake as the weeks go on, I have photographed 6-8 week old babies with success. Posing may not be as easy with an older newborn, but I assure you, we can still capture beautiful images of your little one. We can always do a “newborn style” session for your older baby where they are wrapped, but not sleeping. I recommend that you email me so we can discuss options for your session. If you missed the squishy sleepy newborn stage, you definitely don’t want to pass this stage by.
Do you offer a “Baby Plan” or a “Grow with Me” plan?
Yes, I do. I offer both a mini-session and a full session plan which include Newborn, 6 month/sitter and One Year/Cake Smash sessions. Contact me here for details. You can even add additional milestone sessions at 3 months and 9 months.
