We require an initial consultation to design your session, and are typically scheduled 3-4 weeks in advance, so planning ahead is usually necessary.
Schedule today. No, really. The earlier, the better, and definitely before your seventh month. Are you 36 weeks already and freaking out? No worry! Call us and we'll see what we an do. (We try to complete pregnant mama sessions around 32 weeks to best capture your beautiful growing belly.)
Call us while you are still pregnant. Again: really. The images you see on our website are fresh babies who are less than 8 days old. We will not complete a newborn session past two weeks of life, and our schedule remains full.
The ages and stages of babies are all special, so when to book is completely up to you! But our recommendation for the best images is not ages so much as milestones:
- pushing up and smiling at the world (4 months)
- sitting unassisted and trying to scoot around the room (around 7 months)
- standing or walking
- first birthday
You can book a studio session any time of the year at any time of day because of our gorgeous abundance of natural sunlight activity. If you require an outdoor session, we will always book you when the sunlight is best, which is about an hour before sunset. Trust us on this one. (This could be as early as 4:30 in the winter months, or as late as 7:30 during the summer.)
We begin accepting appointments for holiday sessions on August 1. For Christmas delivery, our last sessions are completed by the first weekend in November, with orders accepted no later than December 1. After December 1, we charge extra because we have to hire elves.
