To all expecting Mommy’s…we have teamed up with Wombs Window. Be sure to schedule your 3D/4D HD live ultrasound with them and receive a gift card to use towards your newborn session with me! Our studio is now in their Wilmington office. When you book an ultrasound appointment with them you will receive a gift card for me.
A deposit is made at this time from my booking link. For newborn sessions, a tentative session date is made based on your due date. My system will send you my contract and a questionnaire for you to fill out choosing your color preference to use during your session.
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 Wilmington. All other sessions are either in studio or outdoors depending on your preference.
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 Wilmington, NC inside Wombs Window ultrasound.
How do I book a session? Sessions are booked through my booking link HERE. You are more than welcome to call me to go over details of your session and what to expect before, during and after your session. The session deposit is due when booking and the remainder is due 2 days before your session date. You will receive a link to download your images within two weeks after your session.
Is there an additional fee if I want poses with Mom and Dad with baby or siblings with baby? These poses are available with my second package. Parent poses are typically done at the end of the session when all of babies more sleepy poses can be achieved. 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 but if I have room on my calendar and baby has already arrived, please don’t hesitate to reach out if my schedule looks full. Sometimes I can make room for one more ;). 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? Newborn sessions usually run about 2 hours but I make sure that there is room in my schedule to longer if needed. I don’t like to rush this tiny humans, I am baby led. So if they need the time for feedings, we will take it.
When do I receive my images and do you offer prints? Within two weeks of your session you will receive a link to download your gallery from a password protected link. I do offer prints and products you can purchase within your gallery and are drop shipped to you.
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 623-251-1750 or please see my booking link HERE to purchase.
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. 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 the first 2 weeks but we will never turn you 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 Wilmington North Carolina or Outdoor Location
Our newborn studio in Wilmington, NC 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.
