Where will the photos be taken?
The sessions take place in my studio at 3000 Bathurst street (Bathurst and Lawrence area).

When is the best time to book my newborn photos?
The best time to book for your newborn photos is before baby arrives, while you are still pregnant to ensure you can take advantage of my guaranteed availability policy, and make sure we can schedule your session for within the first 5-10 days after birth. When you book your session in advance, I take note of your due date and guarantee availability for your newborn session. Babies have a mind of their own, and they tend to arrive whenever they feel like it. Whether your newborn arrives before, spot on, or after your estimated due date, we will make room for you and your newborn in our portrait schedule. Last minute bookings are occasionally accepted, but it is highly encouraged to book early.

Can I book a session if my newborn has already arrived? What if they are older than the 10 days?
Last minute bookings for new babies are welcomed, but are not always available since I only accept a limited number of clients to ensure they all receive the utmost level of care and attention. While I may not have guaranteed availability within 5-10 days after your baby’s birth, I will do my best to schedule your session as soon as possible. 

How long will the Newborn session last?
A  single Newborn session normally lasts around 2-3 hours. As you simply cannot direct a small newborn, we adapt to his or her schedule. So if she doesn’t want to sleep or is a bit cranky and you will need to attend to his/her needs, then that is more than ok. We will have plenty of time to capture your precious one.

Newborns often have skin problems i.e. dry skin or spots/blemishes, will you be retouching these out? Or will this cost extra?
Flaky and dry skin is completely normal for newborns! I will attend any retouching needs for the images of your newborn for no extra fee!

How and when do I get to see my photos?
The image reveal and ordering appointment takes place about two weeks after your session. You and your partner will travel to the studio for your image reveal, and you will be guided through the different options and packages.
