Your images on your website portfolio are mostly black & white. Will my images be available in color at all?
Yes, our website portfolio contains only black and white images, but we do offer color images. We believe that a black and white image resonates with mothers who value the art of photography in a similar way that we do, and are looking to invest in what is timeless over what is trendy. All clients do receive both color and black and white images.
Where will my session take place?
All newborn sessions are held in comfort and convenience of your own home. Maternity sessions and sessions with older children can either be held in your home or an outdoor location of your choosing. We strongly encourage locations be selected because they have meaning to your family versus just being a pretty backdrop.
What do we wear?
Think texture. Layering and texture can add depth and warmth to an image. We love linens, nubby sweaters, soft fabrics and accessories. Neutrals are best. You can go with soft lighter neutrals such as heather grey, whites, blush tones, cream, etc. But deep neutrals are also great like navy, emerald green, burgundy, and charcoal. Cardigans or blazers are great for layering. For babies – just a diaper is our ultimate favorite. If you’re unsure what to wear, let us know. We will help you. Browse our galleries and check out our Pinterest page for more inspiration. You can always bring a variety of options and we’ll help you figure out the perfect outfit.
Are there discounts for multiple sessions?
Yes! We love when a family chooses to return to us, and feel it is such an honor to be chosen time and time again to commemorate the different chapters of their family’s life. We offer a Nostalgia Collective which celebrates milestone sessions to document your baby’s first year.
Do you provide hair and makeup?
While it is in no way necessary, having a professional take care of your hair and makeup the day of your session will give you an extra boost of confidence for being in front of the camera, and provide a well deserved feeling of luxury as part of your custom photography experience. While we do not provide this service in-house, we do provide a list of hair and makeup professionals that we recommend. You will have the option of going to them or having them come to you to help you get ready for your session.

Do you offer mini sessions?
Currently we offer only one “mini” session event per year. It’s a special day held each spring where we focus on mothers and their children. You can view last year’s highlight film here. While we only currently offer the one event – our sister company Pure Portrait Studio specializes in shorter on-location and studio sessions.
