Frequently Asked Questions

.

What's the best time of day for our photo session?

The light is best for photo sessions one to two hours before sunset, or during the first few hours of the morning. If you have small children, they often are at their best in the morning. I am flexible with session times, so if the morning or the last couple hours of the evening don't work for your family, just let me know and we'll find a time that does.

can we include grandparents in our session?

Absolutely. I am happy to include grandparents in your Standard or Deluxe photo session. For more than one set of grandparents, or additional extended family members, contact me about custom pricing.

When will our gallery be ready?

You'll receive a link to an online gallery of all the best images from your session within 2-3 weeks. From your gallery you can download photos, share directly to social media, and purchase professional-quality prints.

Can we purchase additional Photos after our session?

Yes, if you purchased a Basic or Standard package, you'll have the option to purchase additional images or upgrade to the full gallery.

Do you travel?

Yes, I travel around Cascade County and the surrounding areas. A travel fee will apply for travel to locations more than 30 minutes from Great Falls.

FAQ

When should I schedule my maternity session?

The best time for your maternity session is when you're between 32 & 36 weeks pregnant, to ensure that you're far enough along to have a nice round baby bump.

What does the newborn session fee include?

The session fee includes a session prep guide with tips on choosing a outfits, preparing your home for your session, what to do the day of the session, & more. It also includes a complimentary wardrobe consultation (optional). Up to 2 hours of session time at your home and a full gallery of 35+ edited digital images are also included.

Do you pose babies?

No. I do lifestyle newborn photography, which uses your home as the backdrop and focuses on capturing the natural connections between your new baby and your family.

Do you provide props?

No, but I encourage you to include items that are special to you. For maternity sessions, ultrasound pictures, a onesie, or baby booties are favorite props. Newborn sessions might include a sign with baby's name or favorite books, toys, blankets, or outfits.

What's the best time of day for our maternity session?

The light is best for outdoor photo locations 1-2 hours before sunset, or during the first few hours of the morning. If you have small children, they often are at their best in the morning. I am flexible with session times, so if the morning or the last couple hours of the evening don't work for your family, just let me know and we'll find a time that does.

When are newborn sessions scheduled?

Newborn sessions are scheduled between 9 am & noon as babies tend to be the most sleepy and content during the morning.

When will our gallery be ready?

You will receive a link to an online gallery with all your best images within 2-3 weeks.

What if my baby is fussy?

My newborn sessions are relaxed, and there's always plenty of time for feedings, changings, and all the cuddles baby needs.
