How long is the session?
Depending on the type of session, it can vary from 30 minutes to an hour for newborn sessions and large families. Plan to be at the studio at least an hour or more.

What’s the best time to bring our newborn?
It is best to bring them at 3 weeks or less. Bring extra diapers, milk and a pacifier. We will need all of these during the session. Newborn sessions usually take some time so plan to be at the studio for at least an hour if not more.
What’s the best time to bring my kids?
Please bring your kids when they are well rested and fed. It is not a good idea to take photos around nap time. If possible bring their favorite toy and/or other items that can help make them smile. If you have multiple kids, bring someone else to help if possible.
What’s the best time to come in for maternity photos?
We recommend around 7 to 8 months. We have a variety of maternity gowns to choose from so there is no need to plan your attire. Please wear nude underwear and bring a strapless bra. If taking photos with your husband, he should bring an attire that matches our gowns. Check out our maternity gallery and plan his attire accordingly.
What should adults wear for family photos?
We recommend wearing matching colors and/or similar styles. All black, all white and beige are usually nice colors for family portraits. Check out our gallery for kids attire and you could match them if you like. We do not dress adults unless it’s a maternity. Please arrived dressed.
When do we have to pay?
Full payment is required at the time of your session.
When will I receive my portraits?
