Make sure you read through the RATES section before deciding to book your session. You must complete the New Client questionnaire and information form in order to book a session. This questionnaire is found on the POLICIES page in the NEW CLIENT section of the site! 


Newborn Sessions //

When should I book? Brittany encourages clients to book before the baby is due, so that she can insure that she has space to fit you in on her calendar. Brittany understands that newborns can be completely unpredictable- born weeks early or late, but by calling ahead she will have a general idea of when your little one is expected to arrive!

How old should the baby be?  Brittany likes to photograph her newborn subjects right around one to two weeks of age. As the baby grows older he will become more aware of his surroundings and less likely to sleep soundly in the signature poses that Brittany is so known well for.

What time do newborn sessions usually take place? Newborn sessions are usually booked in the morning around 10-11 AM.

What to expect //  Full Newborn sessions typically last 3-4 hours allowing for plenty of time for feeding and comforting. Since the baby is naked for the majority of the session, the studio is kept very warm. In the winter months it is suggested that you dress in layers so that you don't get too hot. Mini newborn sessions last around an hour to an hour and a half. Each mini session allows for two different set-ups. Due to time constraints, family and sibling pictures are not included. 

What to wear // If you are wanting to be included in the pictures and don't prefer the skin on skin with baby look, we recommend that you bring several neutral outfits to pick from. Colors that photograph well with a new baby include cream, grey and tan. Try and avoid any patterns as the focus should be on you and baby and not what you are wearing.

What to bring //  While Brittany has a studio full of blankets, hats, wraps, headbands and props, some clients have certain items like a handmade blanket that they might like to have the new baby photographed with. If you have a special item please mention it in the new client questionnaire! Certain things to avoid would be items that are bright white or made with shiny materials as they tend to not photograph as well. Also avoid headbands with large flowers and bows as they take the focus away from the baby's face.

 

Tips //  Dress the baby in something that is easy to take off. If the baby takes a pacifier make sure to bring it. Please keep in mind that the studio is a quiet environment during your new baby's session. It's best if you can bring along someone to assist with any young siblings that will be present for the shoot.

 


Baby Sessions //

What age? Brittany's favorite age to photography babies at is right around when the baby is steadily sitting, but not yet crawling. This stage usually lasts anywhere from 6-8 months of age. At this age their personalities are really starting  to blossom! They also have a longer attention span than a 4 month old and are generally very "smiley".

How long does the session last? Full Baby sessions usually last around 2 hours long. Mini Baby sessions usually last 1 hour.

What time do baby sessions typically take place? Brittany has found that babies typically to be happier and less tired in the morning hours. Baby sessions can be scheduled around 10-12am. 

What to bring // Bring any of the baby's favorite toys. These can be used to get baby's attention and smiles going during the session. Also bring any favorite snacks. Sometimes the baby will just need a break and have a little snack during the session to recharge!

What to wear // Babies photograph well naked,  but feel free to bring along a few favorite outfits. Avoid any large or heavy patterns. Neutral colors photograph beautifully with baby skin! If you would like to be included in the pictures as well make sure to bring several outfit options for Brittany to pick from. Again, neutral colors such as cream, grey and brown always work really well.


Child and Family Sessions //

What time? Brittany likes to photograph kids and families in the evening with the light is soft and pretty. In the winter months sessions usually start around 4:30pm and in the summer time sessions can typically begin from 5:30-6pm.

How long does the session usually last?  Full Child and family sessions usually last around 1.5-2 hours long. Mini sessions usually take about an hour. 

What to bring // Bring a favorite snack that isn't messy for the kids! A little snack in the middle of the session can often recharge tiring kids!

What to wear // Gone are the days of everyone matching in white shirts and khaki pants in their pictures! Brittany encourages clients to vary their wardrobe, while still making sure that colors and patterns blend well. Always bring more than you think you will need. It's better to have more than not enough. If you have any questions regarding what you are planning on dressing everyone in, Brittany would be more than happy to consult your selections prior to the session via email!
