Once booked, a consultation will be scheduled to get to know each other, discuss the session, answer any questions you may have and plan the details. You'll have the opportunity to discuss preferred colors, props, and favorite poses you see in my portfolio.
You will receive a client questionnaire which will help me get to know you & your family, as well as help me best customize the session to your needs. You will also receive a detailed session preparation guide with all the information needed on what to bring, what to expect and more.

How far in advance should I book?For newborn and maternity sessions, please book while in your second trimester. I only book a limited number of sessions per month so that I can accommodate those who deliver earlier or later than their due date. For all other sessions, I recommend booking one to two months in advance to ensure availability.
How do we book newborn session date, since we don't know when I will actually go into labor.We will book a tentative date for one week after your due date. Once you deliver, let us know and we will confirm the session date and time.
When is the best time do have a newborn session?The ideal time is when the baby is 7-14 days old. This is because they are the most sleepy and easiest to position. However, I don't have a hard rule and will work with a baby at any age.
Can I send inspiration photos?Absolutely! I love for each client to look through my portfolio and share their favorite images.
Can older siblings attend a newborn session?Of course! Sibling photos are so special and so important. To make the most of our time together, we start each newborn session with the family & sibling poses. Then, then siblings can go back to school, or head out on an adventure with a trusted adult, while we stay back and focus on the solo baby poses.
Should I bring anything to the session?Each client is provided with a detail preparation guide prior to the session, detailing what to expect, what to wear and what to bring. But the short answer is...not really! We provide most gowns, props, wraps, etc. If there is something special you'd like to include in your session, definitely bring it along!
I'm interested in the NEXT session. How does it work?Its relaxed, easy and SO. MUCH. FUN! If you're doing the session solo, you'll come to the studio for makeup and we will discuss wardrobe options and then get started! If you're coming with a group of friends, we will have time for refreshments, play some music and everyone can hang out while each person is photographed individually. In both cases, we will do a same day reveal of the images, so everyone leaves the studio feeling excited and confident that they got some incredible portraits. Special rates apply for groups up to five, so reach out for more info!
I'd love to do a beach session. What beaches do you go to?I'm a true Jersey girl and spend my summers down the shore. I am available for sessions from Sandy Hook to Bradley Beach, and have a few favorite spots I can recommend.
What is included with my session fee?Your session fee includes phone consultation, session time, use of client wardrobe and/or props, image reveal and ordering appointment, design of products and albums, editing of images and delivery of products (if in Hoboken). Maternity & NEXT sessions also include professional makeup services. Cake Smash sessions include a custom cake. Images and products are sold separately and not included in the session fee.
What can I expect at the ordering appointment?The image reveal and ordering appointment is so fun! You'll see a soft proof gallery, and we will go through the images together to create your ideal collection. I will guide you through the the process to ensure you purchase only the images you love and then we will design artwork together so that you can have beautiful products to display in your home.
How much are images?All sessions have a minimum image & product investment of $800, which includes both digital and prints. The average client spends $1500-$5000 depending on the session type.
What kinds of products do you offer?We offer a wide variety of custom wall art and desk art including fine art prints, framed prints, metal and acrylic prints and collages. We offer several options for fine art albums, birth announcements, holiday cards and more.
How fast is your turnaround time?Clients are welcome to come in for the image reveal and ordering appointment as soon as possible depending on availability. Some clients come the following day, some come in a week after the session. I guarantee to have digital images delivered within two weeks of the ordering appointment (although I am usually much faster than that!). Custom products are typically ready in 3-4 weeks.
