BOOKING A SESSION
In order to get your desired date, book your session as early as you can. I have a $150 retainer for newborn, maternity, engagement, seniors, and family sessions, and $1500 for wedding dates. This fee is non-refundable if you cancel your session. The balance is due at your session, or by your wedding day. This retainer is non-refundable and will be credited to your total amount due.

WHEN TO SCHEDULE A SESSION
NEWBORN- It is recommended that you book your newborn session before your of your third trimester to guarantee room on my calendar, but anytime before baby is born is usually ok and I am able to fit most people in.
MATERNITY- Maternity portraits are best taken between 28 – 36 weeks of pregnancy, when your belly is showing nicely and before you are feeling too uncomfortable to pose.
ENGAGEMENT- I like to shoot engagement sessions at least 3-9 months before your wedding date, so you can use for save the dates, and on your wedding day.
SENIORS- Make sure to book at least 1 month before your photos are due in to the yearbook to make sure I am able to get them edited and delivered to you with plenty of time.
FAMILY- Anytime! Someones birthday? Family in town? Or just because? Capturing these special moments with family is beautiful any time of year and I am able to fit them in most of the year.
WEDDING- at least 9 months before the wedding day is best, but if I am not booked on your wedding day, anytime is fine!

Do I need to bring anything to my session?
For newborn sessions you do not need to bring any props as I have a large collection of props at the studio. You are welcome to bring special items you have purchased or that are meaningful to you. We will discuss styles and colors for your session prior to your scheduled session and I will have everything ready to go upon your arrival at the studio.
For maternity sessions, I have a variety of dresses you are welcome to wear for your session or you can use your own clothing.
For six month and one year portraits, I have a small collection of outfits that you are welcome to use, but most people use outfits that they bring for their littles
For Engagement sessions, just bring yourselves, and we will create the emotion you are looking for in your images. You are welcome to bring any momentos, or date items to use as props during your session
For Senior sessions- Are you involved in a sport? Band or Orchestra? Something else? Personalizing the session to your interests is a fun way to add some creative images to your gallery.
For Family sessions- Just bring you! Im looking to capture the connection between you and your family, no props are needed, but if you have something you would like to be captured just let me know!
For Weddings- You probably have a long list of things that you are bringing to your wedding, and I will capture it! One thing that I like to photograph that people often forget to bring, are their announcement and invitation set.

LOCATION
Weddings- at your venue! :)
For our newborn and baby sessions, they will take place in my home studio in Mukilteo, WA. I can also travel to your home for a $50 fee.
Maternity, Baby, Family, Seniors, and Engagements are typically done at a location of your choice. I have several areas that I like to shoot if you need some ideas!

ONLINE PROOFING GALLERY AND ORDERING
Your gallery will include professionally edited photos from your session in an online gallery, available at about 2 weeks for newborn and portrait sessions, and 4-6 weeks for weddings. Your gallery will be available to you online for 10 years, but make sure to download and save the images in a safe place.
