Newborn Sessions are held in my home studio located in Oshawa close to the lake about 5 minutes from the 401.

Moday to Friday starting at 12pm each week, subject to availability. (weekends unavailable)

Weekday evenings are an alternate option for studio sessions if weekdays do not work.

To ensure availability it is best to schedule your newborn session at least 2-3 months in advance

You will receive your proofing gallery approximately 7 days from your session

You will have one week to select your images (after this it will expire and a fee will be required to re-post it)

Your final choices will take up to 2 weeks for editing once you have chosen your images

Turnaround for final image galleries are estimated to be 3-4 weeks from the time of your session.

When should I book my newborn session?

A.It is recommended that newborn sessions get booked 30-90 days ahead of time to ensure availability. I book all newborn sessions one week or so following the due date or c-section date. For the most part this booking method works great however if baby comes 2 weeks or more earlier or is not born as session date is approaching we can adjust as needed based on availability. I promise I will fit you in somewhere.

What should I expect during the newborn session?

A.During your newborn session you will be greeted at the studio entrance. We will begin your session with family & sibling session poses (if included in your session) and then move into baby only poses. I start with white on white poses on the poser, swaddled in a bucket and incorporate colours and touches of your preference as you notice things while being in the studio. (There is a lot of stuff around). Once I feel we have enough content we will end your session.

What happens if my newborn doesn't cooperate?

A.Most newborns don't have any issue with cooperating. The odd time we run into a super fussy or gassy baby having a bad day and I never continue to push those babies to perform. If I make a few attempts and it is not working out we will reschedule the session for a day or two following where there is availability when baby is hopefully in better spirits. My main goal is ensuring we have beautiful portraits at the end. No reason to stress a baby out if they are not having a good day and you will not lose out on the beautiful photos that you hired me for. I can promise you that!

Can family & siblings hangout for the entire session?

A.I always recommend that older siblings leave the studio after their portraits are done so that we have a quiet peaceful environment to be able to have baby sleeping deeply enough as required for the poses we hope to capture during a session. However as a mom myself I understand that is not always possible.

I do have a tv in the studio we can put cartoons on for the kids to keep them entertained while we focus on the babies solo images however seating is a bit limited and it's not exactly the comfiest place to hang out. Long as you keep this in mind and are ready for the challenge it's no problem at all.

Can I take pictures with my cell phone during the session?

A.Absolutely! I love behind the scenes shots! If you wish to take behind the scenes shots or videos of your little one during their session please make sure to share the love and tag my facebook page or instagram if you share them on social media! I'd love to see them too!

How long will it take to get my images?

A.You will get your selection gallery approximately 10-14 business days from the time of your session. Once you choose your images and submit your choices final editing will take place. The entire process can take up to 4-6 weeks. If buying your entire digital gallery please allow extra time to accomodate. All turnaround times are estimated and not guaranteed. However every effort to be prompt will be made.
