What payment method do you accept?
Electronic invoices may be fulfilled with a credit or debit card as well as bank draft.
What is needed to secure our session date?
Payment in full and signed contractual agreement.
How do we reserve a newborn photo session date as we're unsure of when the baby will arrive?
Your payment reserves a tentative date, notify Jessica via email or text message once your little one arrives! We solidify our tentative date based on your delivery.
Do you provide props for our newborn session?
Yes, I have a lovely collection of neutral and gender specific fabric backdrops for posed sessions as well as baskets. I also provide wraps, hats and headbands for posed and lifestyle sessions.
What rooms in our home will you use to photograph our family during lifestyle sessions?
Documenting you and your family in the comfort of your home in natural light is timeless and is endlessly personal. I look for the areas in your home that offer the best light and typically aim to shoot in your nursery and master bedroom perhaps even capturing big brother/sister showing off their room. While lifestyle sessions do capture a variety of solo baby shots, this style places emphasis on interaction with family members.
Do you offer custom packages for maternity and newborn sessions and/or baby’s first year?
Yes! If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for in the investment information, I’m happy to build a discounted multiple session package that suits your family.
How long after the session will I receive my initial proofs?
I aim for prompt delivery of initial proofs, typically a few days after the session, unless otherwise mentioned at your shoot.
What kind of payment plans do you offer?
Payment plans are available for multi-session milestone packages with 60% due at booking. Single sessions do require payment in full, prior to the session. If you're booking your session several months in advance, I am willing to offer you a payment plan for a $40 fee. I also accept credit cards.
Do you offer birth announcements?
I offer fully customized birth announcements with photos from your session and baby's birth facts. View a small sample here. Contact Jessica for a gallery of all available designs.
When is the best time to photograph newborns?
I aim to photograph newborns 7-14 days after delivery but have photographed posed and lifestyle newborn sessions with babies up to five weeks old.
Do we need to provide props for our newborn session?
If there are any personal items that you’d like to incorporate into your session, I’d be happy to photograph them, but don’t worry about finding something particular if nothing comes to mind. Timeless lifestyle images are best captured with less ‘stuff’ and I will have a variety of neutral swaddles and headbands and hats to offer during our sessions.
Can baby be posed for naked photos during our lifestyle session?
Yes! Keep in mind that the images will look different from what is captured in studio. Baby may or may not sleep for the lifestyle session posed shots if the environment is not warm. If you're simply looking for one pose in the home alongside timeless, beautiful images that are endlessly personal, captured in natural light focused on the beauty of a brand new family instead of an entire posed style session, a lifestyle session is exactly what you're looking for. I'm happy to guide you in this decision. Please don't be afraid to reach out.
