Session Information

maternity.

time frame.
Maternity sessions are best done between 7 and 8 months, depending on how you’re feeling and showing. Please contact me as soon as you can so I can schedule your session in that time frame.

what to expect.
Maternity sessions take 30 minutes to one hour. Outdoor maternity sessions cam be amazing, so if it’s spring or summer we can do them outside. Otherwise they will be shot in the studio.

what to bring.
Bring along clothing that hugs your curves and shows your body. Some great staples are fitted jeans, tank tops, tube tops, cute dresses, yoga pants, bras tops and sweaters that button at the top. Color and pattern are great as well, especially for outdoor sessions, so bring a variety of outfits along.

newborns.

time frame.
Newborn sessions are best when the baby is 5-12 days old. We do them this early so that the baby is still very sleepy, curly and hasn’t gotten the baby acne that tends to show up around 2-3 weeks old. Be sure to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant.

what to expect.
A typical newborn session takes about 3 hours. We take our time, allow for feedings and settling. For this type of session the focus is on the newborn photos, but we can do a few sibling and parent shots as well.

what to bring.
We have a wonderful collection of hats, baskets and blankets, but please do bring anything that may be special to you.

location.
Newborn sessions are shot at the studio unless you are booking a lifestyle session.

family.

what to expect.
Family sessions will range from 1 to 2 hours. If you have small children we’ll run, play, blow bubbles and enjoy some sunshine. Don’t worry if your kids aren’t that interested in getting their photo taken. Allow them to be themselves and I will do the chasing. It’s best not to push them into saying “cheese” and pose… I would much rather capture them naturally.

what to wear.
Dress your family with style! You don’t all need to wear the same color t-shirt and jeans. Dress in similar tones but it’s perfectly acceptable to bring in some color and texture as long as it’s not overpowering. If in doubt jeans and t-shirts, bare feet and summer dresses are always great.

location and time.
I love to shoot families outside in nature. Before your session we’ll agree on a location that’s full of trees, paths and streams. I also love old barns, trucks, brick walls and anything with texture. If you have a suggestion for your location let me know ahead of time so I can scope it out. I try to plan family sessions during the last 2 hours before sunset. This is the best light and will be the most flattering for everyone.

Sarah Schulz - Hi!

I am interested in your maternity photo sessions.
What is the cost for this? Are there different packages offered?

Do you ever offer mini sessions like you have in the past for kid photos (sorry if I”m confusing you with another photographer on this last point!)

I am due August 12.

Thanks!
