frequently asked questions

WHAT STYLE IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?

Classic. Simple. And, most importantly, you. Every family is unique, and my job is to capture you and your personalities. So, you can look back on the pictures and feel the way you did during this season of your life.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN MY SESSION?

Your session includes my time and talent, plus hand edited digital images.

Family Lifestyle Session

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A SESSION WITH YOU?

For newborn sessions, I recommend contacting me in your second trimester to reserve your session. But no need to worry if your newborn has already arrived! I'll do my best to squeeze you in!

 

Family sessions can be booked anytime! Please note that weekend sessions are very limited.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Keep things neutral and light. Add some textures to give interest and depth. Once you book a session, you'll get my What to Wear Guide - full of tips! You can also take a look at my Pinterest board for some inspiration.

HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

Two weeks after your session, we'll meet online for a reveal/ordering appointment - that's where you'll see your images for the first time! After your appointment, I’ll email you a digital download.

MY BABY/TODDLER IS SICK! WHAT DO I DO?

Call me! I'm a mom. I get it. You don't want pictures of your sick child. We'll reschedule the session as soon as everyone is healthy!

The NPS Photography Difference

WASHINGTON DC NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

REAL LIFE OVER PICTURE PERFECT

 

Think your house is too dark or isn’t styled like something out of a magazine? Or you won’t get the perfect picture if everyone isn’t looking directly at the camera?

 

Well, I’m all about snapping those real life, unscripted, full-of-personality moments in the place you call home over trying to get the perfectly-posed and prop-filled photographs.

 

And I promise to find the perfect spots in your home no matter if you're renting or not in your dream home.

TAILORED, RELATIONSHIP-BASED APPROACH

 

Every family has unique quirks and favorite details to be remembered on camera forever. For that reason, you won’t get a one-size-fits-all session experience with me.

 

Instead, you’ll quickly realize I’m passionate about building a relationship with you, my friends, to truly provide you with a customized approach that will have you feeling relaxed and ready to book your family’s next milestone moments in front of the camera.

WORKING HARD FOR THOSE NATURAL SMILES

 

A camera can inevitably throw off the little ones in your family—no matter if they’re generally shy or the life of the party. But you don’t have to worry one bit about that! I’ll work hard to warm them up to being photographed so I can get those genuine smiles and giggles. They'll forget the camera is even there!

BAD BEHAVIOR – NOT AN ISSUE

 

Been there, done that! As a mom of three boys and a former elementary school teacher, I've seen and dealt with it all!

 

I have plenty of tricks to make your session run smoothly and your kids cooperate and even have some fun!

I’M TAKING YOU BEHIND THE LENS - LET’S BE FRIENDS!
