Frequently Asked Questions

Studio sessions are done in my home studio. I am adjacent to Glover Archbold Park, which has many beautiful spots for outdoor sessions, when then weather permits. The Georgetown University campus is within walking distance. If you are interested in an outdoor session, we will discuss locations in our initial phone call, and we will have to schedule a rain date as well.

I shoot any day by appointment. Studio sessions are typically scheduled at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm. Location sessions are scheduled in the early morning or late afternoon as dictated by the sun and the season. I offer location sessions in April, May, and into June in the spring and in September & October in the fall. Location sessions require scheduling an alternate date in case of bad weather.

Absolutely! I run a full-service boutique photo studio and guide you through the entire experience. I come to your home for a full Design Consultation to discuss who we are photographing, the style that best fits your family and your home, and where your images will live - on your walls or in a custom-designed album or portrait box. During your Design Consultation, we select a date for your session. Before I leave, I take photos of your walls so I can show you mock-ups of your images during your Selection appointment. The mock-ups help you choose the appropriate size and placement. Of course we also talk about what everyone should wear for the session.

Generally, sessions last up to 60 minutes. Sessions of individual children are usually shorter because the kids get tired quickly. Location sessions tend to last a little longer. In either case, if everyone is having tons of fun, we capture the funny in-between moments as well.

A week or two after the session, you have your Selection Appointment where you see your images and my suggestions for the products we discussed during your Design Consultation. We'll go through your images and select your favorites. Go with your emotions - choose the images you react most strongly to. If you are getting wall art, we look at different sizes and frame treatments until you are happy. If you chose an album, I have it pre-designed for you to look at and modify to get it just the way you want it. At this point, we finalize your order. Full payment is due at this appointment and must be received before I place your order.

That's my goal, of course. But you need to leave room on your walls for future portraits as your children grow and change. Most people create albums of the images they can't walk away from. Or they collect images in a Portrait box, which holds 20 matted images that you can add to over time and doubles as a rotating portrait frame. Just change the portrait in the window whenever you are in the mood for something different.

I provide a digital file meant for sharing on social media or with relatives and friends for every image you purchase as a printed product. These files are also suitable for digital frames.

Yes, we STILL have to talk about this. Everyone in my house has been been fully vaccinated and boosted and I request that you have been as well. I have a COVID waiver I ask you to sign to protect your interests as well as my own. Before starting in-hospital newborn photography, I had to prove immunity to measles, mumps, chickenpox, and rubella, pass a criminal background check and a drug test, and have an annual TB test, flu shot, and a periodic Tdap vaccine. After all of that, what if I get a cold? I will reschedule your session and I appreciate you doing the same.

Orders typically take 4-6 weeks to deliver as all images are hand retouched before they are printed, wall art is custom printed and framed, and albums and portrait boxes are handcrafted in Italy.
