WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?

I recommend booking your session as far in advance as reasonable for you. Booking in advance is the best way to secure your session. In the case of newborn sessions, I suggest booking before your baby arrives.  Note that I only take on a certain number of newborn sessions per month. In addition, once your little one arrives, you’ll be a little overwhelmed and it will be a relief knowing that your newborn session is all set. For family sessions, my busy seasons (spring and fall) tend to fill up quite quickly, especially weekends.

WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY SESSION?

A certain number of edited high-resolution images is included with EVERY session package! You receive a custom-made flash drive with full printing rights for personal use, as well as three identical mini-accordian albums. The 3″x3″ mini-albums are a real treat and my clients always comment on how beautiful they are. They make the perfect gift for grandparents, a family keepsake or a unique birth-announcement. Plus they’re magnetic, so you can easily display on your fridge or in your office for a quick browse-through when you’re feeling nostalgic.

WHERE DO THE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Most sessions take place in my Roslyn, NY studio located in Long Island (Nassau County). Here I have a light, airy studio with everything we need from props to lighting to backdrops (for more info on my studio, click here). I also come to your home and bring the studio to you essentially (additional fee may apply, have a look at the Pricing & Packages page for more information.) Outdoor sessions take place in a variety of locations. Though I love shooting in Central Park, any location you might suggest surrounded by nature, trees, water, beach, etc is all I need for an outstanding session for your family.

HOW LONG DO SESSIONS TAKE?

Depends on the type of session: Milestone sessions usually take less than 1 hour. Newborn sessions usually take between 2-4 hours. Maternity and Family sessions usually take between 1-2 hours.

HOW DO I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?

I always post a “sneak peek” to Facebook and Instagram a couple days after your session.  Within 3 weeks you will receive your images either as a digital download or on a custom-made flash drive.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO RESCHEDULE?

I want your family to feel your best for the session. If one of you is sick, please let me know 24-hours prior to your session and we will reschedule. I’m very flexible and always do my best to accommodate my clients.

DO YOU PROVIDE THE PROPS, OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES?

Yes, I provide everything you see in my portfolio, and you’ll have full access to browse all props and accessories upon arrival the studio. Using my style of photography as a compass, I have sourced an extensive collection of props all over the US, as well as internationally from countries as close as Canada and as far as Australia. I’m constantly receiving packages filled with gorgeous goodies for your little ones. Vessels of all shapes, materials and sizes include: bowls, crates, boxes, baskets, and antique finds. Handmade and hand-knit rompers, diaper covers, pants, headbands, flower crowns, bonnets and quilts fill the shelves and hang from multiple hooks.
