WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MAMA + ME SESSION? Anytime! Contact me to schedule your session.
WHEN AND WHERE WILL IT TAKE PLACE? The session will take place at your home. Daytime is the best for the light.
WHY BOOK A MAMA + ME SESSION? Most of the time we mamas are the ones taking photos and videos of our family. Wouldn’t it be nice to have sweet moments between you and your child(ren) to look back on as well?
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PHOTO SESSION? 1-2 hours of shooting time. Within 2 weeks you will have 30+ images sent to you via a password protected online gallery. You will get both low resolution images to share and high resolution images if you wish to print them.
HOW LONG WILL YOU BE THERE? Between 1 and 2 hours on average.
HOW MUCH IS A MAMA + ME SESSION? I offer two packages for Mama + Me sessions : with or without film. For pricing informationclick here.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR PHOTOGRAPHS? It’s best to do them during the day to make the most of a beautiful natural light.
WHAT IS YOUR MAMA + ME STYLE? I like to capture life as it is: simply you nursing your baby, playing with your toddler, baking cookies, helping with homework. Basically any daily activities that will make your heart burst when all these days go by. They say that days are long but years are short…it will bring such joy to see the little details of our routines once our kids are older.
DO YOU SHARE EVERY BIRTH ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND/OR YOUR WEBSITE? I would love to share your story. However, I respect each woman’s culture, preferences, and beliefs. Your Mama + Me gallery will be password protected with a unique download code. Each of my moms must fill out a contract with an extensive model release, granting me permission to share (or NOT share) your images and/or film online. As my client, you always have the option to keep your photos completely private. While many of my clients find joy in sharing their story with the world, many others keep those images and video just for their own family. Whatever you choose, I’m behind you 100 percent. I respect each woman’s culture, preferences, and beliefs. Your privacy and comfort is my number one priority.
DO I NEED ANYTHING FOR THE PHOTOS? You can clean up a little bit of the clutter at home, get dressed comfortably, do what you need to feel naturally beautiful! Neutral colors look best on photos and it is best to avoid logos and brands. As long as you are comfortable!
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY? The deposit is non-refundable, but we can always arrange for it to be applied to another later session if you cancel with at least 48hours notice.
IF I CANNOT MAKE IT DUE SOMETHING UNEXPECTED ON MY SIDE, WILL YOU BE REFUNDED? Yes! A full refund of your deposit will be given if I miss your Mama + Me session for any given reason (if I am busy shooting a Birth/Labor, for example). It can also be applied towards another session I offer (Family Film for example). CAN FAMILY JOIN IN ON THE PHOTOS? They can but keep in mind this is for you!
