Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can we (Mom, Dad, Big Sibling) be in the photos as well?


A: The short answer is YES! I always recommend that this be your first family portrait, or your first updated one as a new family. However, there are a few things to consider- Imagine you are living alone and life is grand. You have your own schedule, you do as you please, you're pretty happy! Now imagine that all of a sudden, you have a new, a roommate that is drunk ALL the time! They are eating your food, bothering your guests, they smell horrible, and they are SO loud! Got that picture in your head? It would be pretty awful right? Well, this is how it feels for your big sibling if they are in the age range of 18-30 months of age. They are all of a sudden having to share their whole lives with a new person that just popped in for an undefined amount of time. So we take this into consideration when photographing siblings. I ask that parents be patient and understand that while I do my best, it's not always possible to capture sibling and baby together.




Q: I feel like I look AWFUL after having my sweet baby, I really don't know if I want to be photographed like this. Do I have to?


A: I always recommend that mothers take photos with their new baby, no matter how they think they look. Your children will not look back at these photos in 20 years and think "WOW mom was fat and tired..." They ARE going to look back and think how amazing it is to have photos of their mother, and how grateful they are to have them. I recommend moms come in with light natural make up, lash strips if you want that extra pop, and let me take care of the rest. I take care of post pregnancy blemishes and treat my moms to a small photoshop pampering ;)




Q: When is the best time to schedule my baby's photos?


A: The best time to book your photographer is before your baby is born. Our clients typically book us for both Maternity and Newborn, so we book your newborn session at the same time as we book your maternity. However, if you find that you're reading this page with a bundle of joy already in your arm, feel free to drop me a line and I can see if I have a space to squeeze you in. I appreciate being able to photograph babies in their second to third week of life, around 12-18 days. While it isn't impossible to photograph them as the get closer to 1-2 months, it isn't quite the same as a newborn session and baby may be awake and wrapped for most of the session.




Q:What do I wear, and what do I need to bring for baby?


A: When you book with me, you will receive a guide that will help you prepare you and your baby for a stress-free, relaxing session. I have many parents that nod off for a short time during their baby's portion of the session. That is totally ok!




Q: How long is a newborn session?


A: Newborn sessions with Little Lashes Photography are approximately 1.5-2 hours.




I understand that the portraits we purchase may add up to a large investment. Do you offer payment plans?


Yes! My goal is to get you exactly what your heart desires. Many of our clients make big investments with us, because we are providing a tangible piece of history for them and they want it done right. That being said, you may sit down and reveiw what you want and think WOAH thats a lot to spend at once. No need to worry, we offer payment plans to help you get what you would like. These payments plans are customized on a person to person basis and may not be available for every purchase, but we do our best where we can!




When is the best time to schedule my maternity photos?


We tend to book out several months in advance, so booking early is optimal. This will ensure that you receive the date that works best for you, especially if you need a weekend. The best time for your session is between 28-34 weeks which varies person to person.




Do I have to bring my own dresses or do my own hair and make up?


We strive to make this experience to easiest, most stress free part of your pregnancy. Between doctors appointments, working full or part time, taking care of exisiting children, and just overall preparing for a new baby- Doesn't it feel great to know that these things are taken care of for you? Select from our vast client closet (See page) and choose a variety of dresses and attire to wear for your session. Before arriving you'll meet with our amazing hair and make up artist, Betty and she will take care of you and make you feel pampered so that you are camera ready! These ammenities are included in our services, there is no extra charge!




Where do Newborn Photos take place?


One question I get a lot is "Do I go to you, or do you come to me?" I used to travel to my clients homes, but time and time again I realized that the atmosphere and elements MATTER. Many homes were not warm enough, may be too loud with kids running around, family members visiting, or animals making their own noises. All of these factors make photographing and posing a newborn more difficult. My goal is to create a seamless, stress free process from beginning to end. So instead of having to clean your house to make space for me, or turn your heater to 80 degrees for the day- I have you come to me where I have all of the elements dialed to perfection and you can just sit back and relax.
