Where is your studio located?
615 Foys Canyon Rd. Kalispell (by appointment only).
Please note, currently I do not have a restroom in the studio as it is a new building and we are planning to add one in the Spring. However, I am happy to take someone up to my home to use the restroom.
When should I schedule my session?
I recommend booking anytime after you've reached your second trimester, especially if you plan to include a maternity session. I typically book about two months in advance as I only reserve a few due dates per month. On occasion, I have availability on short notice if my little clients were born earlier or later than expected so always feel free to reach out and ask!
What do your sessions include?
In short, everything! I provide all props, wraps, headbands, etc. so there is nothing you need to worry about bringing with you.
What if my baby won't do a certain pose or won't sleep?
Baby runs the show. I'll never force baby into a pose. If baby won't sleep, I'll usually move on to simple poses or wrapped in props as these are a great way to gently coax baby into sleeping or at least keep those little arms and legs tucked in so we can capture some sweet awake photos. As long as we are able to capture photos where baby is content, that's my main goal.
What's the difference between a mini and a full session?
A mini session is a swaddled only session as the main goal is to keep baby sleeping and happy so we can accomplish as much as possible in a shorter period of time. A mini baby session is all about baby and incorporates more wraps and props while a mini family session incorporates family posing.
What's the difference between a studio session and an in-home lifestyle session?
Studio sessions are styled sessions that are photographed using studio lighting, backdrops, props, wraps, etc. Lifestyle sessions are photographed with natural light in your home, they do not include wraps or props and are all about capturing your family together at home.
What are baby mugshots?
These are photos I try to incorporate into all of my studio sessions. These are awake shots, photographed very specifically to capture just the baby's face and all the fun expressions you see them make throughout the day. I take these photos specifically for black and whites. From all these cute expressions, even the crying ones, I'm sure you can see why these have quickly become a client favorite!!
Can I bring my own props?
If you would like something from home incorporated into your session, please let me know in advance so I can prepare a set for it. My suggestion would be to limit to one item so we have time to capture as many props and poses as possible during your session
