What to Expect

Maternity portrait sessions can be booked year-round and are scheduled around the Golden Hour or within 1-2 hours of sunset. Sessions last up to 1 hour on location or in Megan’s Downtown Raleigh studio. I recommend studio sessions for cooler weather months or as an add on to a newborn session. And I always welcome props that you may want to incorporate into the session.

 

Within two weeks of your maternity portrait session, you will receive a gallery link and password to view your images online. Each image featured in your online gallery is hand edited and easily downloaded directly to your computer! A CD or USB of your online gallery can be provided upon request, there is no additional cost for these products.

Newborn portrait photography sessions are ideally scheduled within 5-10 days of birth. Sessions are photographed in my studio in Raleigh, NC, just minutes from Cary, Holly Springs, Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Clayton & I-40. However, I will travel to your home upon special request. Sessions last approximately 2-3 hours with plenty of breaks for feeding and changing.

 

A typical newborn portrait session will begin with 3-4 different prop setups of just baby before moving on to family portraits with the baby and siblings. When you book your session months before baby arrives, we will schedule a time to meet to discuss which props and setups you would like to use. I always like to include colors from the nursery into the session. I have a large collection of props, posing outfits, headbands, tutus, hats, bonnets, bow ties, blankets and baskets for you to choose from. But I will encourage you to bring heirlooms, blankets, toys or any item with sentimental value to incorporate into your baby’s newborn portraits.

 

Get ready to LOVE your baby even more – watching them sleep is such a beautiful thing! However, don’t be surprised if it takes your little bundle of joy a good while to get into “baby model mode.” They aren’t used to being handled this much, but with a full belly, a warm and cozy environment, and lots of love, they will be snoozing in no time!

Family portrait sessions can be booked year-round and are scheduled around the Golden Hour, within 1-2 hours of sunset. Sessions last up to 1 hour on location or in Megan’s Downtown Raleigh studio. I recommend studio family sessions for families of three or less. And I always welcome props that you may want to incorporate into the session.
