Maternity Sessions Frequent Asked Questions

What is the best age to have a portrait session for my kids?


Great question! You can’t go wrong from when you are expecting them to when they finish college, any and every age is perfect and has its own particular beauty. We have special packages from when you are pregnant, newborn and their first year. After this, every year is a great plan, especially during those early years when a child’s appearance changes so dramatically, so fast. In short, the perfect time is now!




What should we wear?


Feel free to express yourself, but as Coco Chanel said: Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance. Hint: Nice plain clothes and jeans are always great. Don’t overdo the patterns and prints, especially on adults. Let your kids shine, not the clothes. Still can’t decide what to wear? Email me and will send you some ideas!




Where will be the session held and how long will be?


Your family session could take place at your home, a park or your garden, if you want a wonderful rice field landscape with mountains you are welcome to come to Los Banos. If you are up for the trip, we could go to a nearby beach (additional transport charge) Family sessions can take from 1 to max 2 hours, it depends of the age of your children.




What happens after the session?


About 2-3 weeks after your session, I will email you with a password for your private online proofing gallery. The online gallery will remain active for 14 days. You can choose the collections and products that you want. Once full payment is received your prints, wall art or albums will be ordered; they can take 3-4 weeks for delivery. All images will be stored and archived after 60 days. Payment can be made by deposit on a bank account, credit card, or cash.




What happens if my kid gets sick on the session date? Can we change the date?


Just let me know. Sick kids are not in the best mood, and really: who is? I want this experience to be a great memory for you and your family but of course, it’s your call: A runny nose generally isn’t going to get them down, but a fever likely will.





 

Newborn Sessions Frequent Asked Questions

When is the best time to book a newborn session?


The best time to book your session is at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, we will have a tentative booking time and when you arrive home from the hospital with your little one we will decide the final date of your session.




What is the best age for a newborn session?


The prefered age to photograph newborns is from 7 to 14 days old, this is when they are still very sleepy, can be easily posed, baby acne hasn't appeared yet and any signs of jaundice have faded as well. If your baby came early or if your baby is already born, don’t panic! I always do my best to squeeze newborns into my schedule and older babies take beautiful portraits too.




Where will be the session held and how long will be?


Your newborn session will take place at your home. I will bring everything that I need from props to wraps and everything in betwee. Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting.

Do you have portrait sessions for older babies?


Yes, I do. Actually I have a baby plan that includes a session when the baby can sit by himself (around 6-8 months) and a portrait session when the baby is one year old!
