How Do I Book a Session?
In order to get your desired time and date available, book your session as early as you can. Our schedule is often booked 4 – 8 weeks in advance.
A $50 Deposit per session is due at the time of booking in order to retain your session. This fee is non-refundable if you cancel your session. The balance is due at your session.
When Do I Schedule my Session?
Maternity portraits are best taken between 28 – 36 weeks of pregnancy, when your belly is showing nicely and before you start to feel too uncomfortable.
Newborn Sessions are best done 7-21 Days after birth. I also accept a limited amount of newborns that are 3-6 weeks old in case baby needs NICU time or you just decided to schedule a session. I highly recommend booking your newborn session during your 2nd or 3rd trimester to ensure availability. Pre-booking also allows you to prepare for the session ahead of time. Once you're home from the hospital contact me within 24 hours to schedule your session.
Sitter Mini's for babies 6-11 months are held throughout the year on a special mini session date. One Year and Cake Smash sessions should be held 3-4 weeks before babies first birthday to ensure their prints and images are available for their celebration.
Where are your Sessions Located?
Studio Maternity, Newborn and Baby Sessions are held at our Commercial Studio in Mid-McAllen. Outdoor Maternity Sessions are held at an outdoor location in the McAllen/Edinburg area and will be disclosed upon booking.
What happens after the Session?
Once your session is over, I will carefully choose the best from your session. I will then send you an online gallery from which you can choose your select images that are included with your package. If there are extra images, you are welcome to buy those individually or you can purchase all extra images together. Once you choose your favorite images, I will edit your selected images. Once your image gallery is complete, your Online gallery will be available within two – three weeks after your session. At this time, you can place your order for the print package that is included with your session. From your online gallery you can also order additional prints and products or you can print them on your own.
Only one reschedule is permitted. Please be considerate and inform us at least 24 hours before your session. More than one reschedule will result in a rescheduling fee of $50.
