Step One

Contact me by phone to schedule your session and we will go over details of your session. A deposit is made at this time. For newborn sessions, a tentative session date is made based on your due date. I will then email you my contract and a questionnaire for you to fill out choosing your color preference to use during your session.

Step Two

For newborn sessions, notify me as soon as baby arrives so that we can make any adjustments to your session date. I like to see babies within the first two weeks. If everyone is healthy you will then head to my studio in Surprise. All other sessions are either in studio or outdoors depending on your preference.

Step Three

Once the session is complete we then schedule your ordering appointment at our studio. Ordering appointments are usually made within one week of your session date. This is where we sit down together and show you your edited images. Your order is placed at this time. Image files are sent via email link within 24 hours of placing order, unless additional editing is needed a new delivery time will be given. Prints and products are usually ready for pick up at the studio within 3 weeks of order placed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your package pricing? Please see my pricing page HERE for more information.

Where are you Located? Our newborn studio is located in Surprise, Arizona and serve most of the West Valley.

How do I book a session? Sessions are booked over the phone. During the phone call I will go over details of your session and what to expect before, during and after your session. The session deposit is due at this time with a provided credit card. Choosing of your images and payment is due at an ordering appointment that we schedule once your session is complete.

Is there an additional fee if I want poses with Mom and Dad with baby or siblings with baby? These poses are optional with no additional fee in our 2-3 hour full newborn sessions. Petite sessions are baby only and are one hour. Parent poses are available in my full sessions and can include these poses towards the end of the session. When bringing siblings, I recommend having a family member present to help them during this time.

When should I schedule my maternity session? Maternity sessions should be scheduled within your 2nd trimester, to guarantee a spot on my calendar, I recommend booking at this time. Session is best scheduled around your 25-32 weeks of pregnancy. We typically book 2 weeks in advanced and 2 to 3 weeks in advanced during the busy holiday season. If you are booking your maternity and newborn session with us then both sessions are booked at the same time with session deposit collected for both at this time.

When should I schedule my newborn session? Newborn sessions are typically scheduled in your 2nd or 3rd trimester or when we scheduled your maternity session. I like to see newborns between 1-2 weeks after delivery. Once you are in my calendar with a tentative date, we will wait for babies arrival to make any adjustments to your appointment date and time.

What is provided? Everything needed for your newborn session is provided that you see in my work. From hats, headbands and wraps for newborns. Milestone sessions and gowns for mom to wear are also included.

How long are your newborn sessions? Petite newborn sessions are one hour. Full newborn sessions are between 2-3 hours depending on babies cooperation.

When do I view my images and what is due at that time? About one after your session, you will come to our studio to choose the images and package/product(s) of your choice. Order amount is due at this time. We offer digital collections, print and canvas options. Standard print and album orders have about a 2 week turn around time.

Do you offer gift certificates? Yes! This time in a newborns life is so fleeting, we want to offer any new mother the opportunity to document these first few months. Friends and family may purchase a gift certificate by giving the studio a call at 951-623-9560.

The Session

Session Timeline

The experience begins with a phone consultation when scheduling your appointment time. With you’re booking, you are given many hours of Kristy’s time and creativity, custom editing and retouching of each individual file and 25-45 images to choose from when you return for you’re ordering appointment. Our goal for the newborn session is to give Moms and Dads a time of rest, to allow them to sit back, relax and enjoy the sweetness of their new baby being documented. Newborn sessions should be done within 7-9 days old but we will never turn away if your baby is a little older. We have purposefully designed our studio in a way to calm both mom and baby. While you rest, Kristy will photograph your sweet ones new life in a variety of poses. Please read our information on investment and/or contact us for additional details.

The Perfect Location

Our Newborn studio in Surprise, Arizona or Outdoor Location

Our newborn studio in Surprise, Arizona has everything provided for that you see in my work; from headbands, bonnets, wraps, outfits and gowns for Mom. My studio is also comfortable and quiet for families where I provide snacks and refreshments. Every item in my newborn studio is kept clean and sanitary for babies with a changing station for parents to use.

I have carefully chosen locations that offer just the right lighting and backdrops for family and milestone sessions. On location sessions are bathed in light and feature the soft colors and textures that nature has to offer. When scheduling your session, I will send you a questionnaire so we can better prepare. Items from the studio wardrobe can be chosen that will complement the soft colors of our outdoor location.
