BABY INFORMATION

Oh Baby!  We love babies!  We also love capturing  the relationship between a mother and her family.  From the first smiles to the first steps, we want to be the ones to record it all.  We love watching your little one grow as well as your family.

The Important Stuff

The Milestone Collection

From belly bumps to babies, Your little one changes so fast.  Each phase of development is an opportunity to capture memories and important milestones of their first year. This option offers exquisite wall art, digital images, and a beautiful book of your baby with exclusive savings by choosing us to capture your babies first year. 

Pricing and Collections

If The Milestone Collection isn't what you are looking for, we have other options for single sessions with two other types of print pricing, a la carte and Collections.  You can purchase as little or as much as you want with a la carte.  We also have Collections that feature wall art, digital images, canvas groupings, gift prints and more that offer discounts and bonus products.  Collections start at $425.00.  The family session fee is $25.00 for indoor at the studio and $50.00 for alternate locations.  For more information, an in-person consultation, or to schedule your session you can call us at 304.488.6807.

How to Book a Session

You can call us at our studio at 304.488.6807 to book your session. We usually book appointments for the current month, and 1 month in advance. Since maternity sessions are time sensitive, it’s a good idea to get yourself on the waiting list early. Maternity sessions should be booked when mom is approximately 7 months along, and newborns are best photographed within the first 2 weeks of life.  The session fee will be due on the day of your appointment.  We accept all major credit/debit cards.  For more information about sessions available CLICK HERE

Planning Your Session

Plan your session ahead of time. Clothing selections will be based on the session being photographed.  Bring a brush or comb, makeup, and any other personal items you may need to touch up a bit.  You should also pack baby's things:  their favorite toy for attention, snacks/milk, extra clothing, etc.  We do have newborn diapers and wipes available on our changing table if needed.

After Your Session

Once your session is photographed, it typically takes about 2 weeks for your portraits to be edited. Once the images are edited, we will contact you to set up an in-person ordering appointment. You will come back to view your images on our 60" TV from our comfy couch.  Once you place your order, it usually takes 10 to 14 business days to receive it from our lab (depending on the product and edits required).  For more helpful hints, see How should I prepare for my ordering session? below.

Helpful Hints

How should I prepare for my ordering session?

Everyone who will be making decisions should be present for the session.  We also recommend making an evening of it by getting a sitter.  This will allow you stress-free time to choose your selections (and maybe even grab dinner after).  Think about where you will be hanging your wall art before your session.  We can even display potential wall art for your home at actual size in ratio to your wall.  All you have to do is take a photo with your cell phone and email it to us.  We can give you instructions on how at your session.  We can also do a pre-consultation to discuss where you will be displaying your wall art, so we can better plan out your session and posing.  Make a list of those whom you will be purchasing gift prints.  We will give you a packet of our collections at your session so you and your family can review the options and pricing before coming back for your ordering session. 

Working on kid/baby time

Big brother or sister will not be the first that gets a little "too excited" during their session.  We work on kid/baby time during our portrait sessions and understand that some may take longer than others, so stay positive.  Practice holding the new bundle of joy with the proud big brother or sister prior to your session.

Bribery gets us EVERYWHERE with siblings.  We use candy (usually Smarties®) for a little persuasion with the little ones.  If your little one is under the age of 1, please bring your baby's favorite treat, whether it be puffs or yogart melts.  Please let us know ahead of time if your child is unable to have candy.

Happy people, happy photos

A hangry family does not make photo sessions a fun time.  Make sure everyone has had a snack before coming and feel free to bring snacks and drinks for older siblings.
