the session process......

Your sneak peeks are posted
(if desired) and a few days after your session you'll receive your proofing gallery.  This is a giant gallery of images from which you'll pick the images for your package.   Your selected images are then perfected & uploaded to your final online gallery for you to download & share. 


You text or email to tell us your little love has arrived.  We set the date of your session at that time.  A few days before your session you'll receive some basic session prep guidelines to help you best prepare for a successful session

when you deliver

You choose your session type & pay your retainer.  Your due date is added to the session calendar & once baby arrives (early, late or right on time) we set your session date within the first 2 weeks.

“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes,
even when the people in it do.”

A: sessions are held within your baby's first 14 days earthside.  This way we get the beautiful sleepy, curly poses you see in my portfolio.

Q: how old should baby be for the session

A: Sessions are held in my Tolland CT studio.  Everything we need for your sessions is provided. 

Q: Where are sessions held & what do i bring?

A: We have everything needed for sessions at the studio.  All props, hats & headbands are provided.

A: In order to give our clients the most personalized experience we take a very limited amount of sessions per month (8-10) therefore typically book up 2-3 months in advance.   Depending on when our scheduled babies arrive, we may have last-minute session if your baby is already here, please reach out to see if I can still accommodate you. 

A: 1-3 hours depending on the session type.  We allow plenty of time for feeding, soothing & momma snuggles.  We keep sessions relaxed & low stress. We are on baby time :)
