 • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS •

Do you give/sell digital files from your photo sessions?
Absolutely. When you order one of our Signature Collections, you automatically get the high resolution file for each of the images in that collection. Additional individual digital files are also available to purchase A la Carte.

What is your favorite/most popular photo product?
Hands down my Fine Art albums. They are just stunning!! It’s the perfect way to tell your story, and showcase all the beautiful photos from your session. I have families that book sessions every fall, and have started a collection of their beautiful albums! There are a several different styles available, and I can definitely help you determine which fits your personal style and photography session best. If you’d like to see one in a little more detail, please check out the blog “A Closer Look at our Flush Mount Albums.”

When is the best time to take maternity photos?
Toward the end of the second trimester or beginning of the third trimester. BUT, the real answer varies differently a tad bit for each expecting little momma. Mothers expecting their second child tend to show a bit sooner than they did with their first. You want to be big enough to look fabulous showing off your prego belly, but not too big to where you’re miserable doing so the entire session. If you would like even more info on this question, be sure to check out this blog post on “Tips and Timing for Perfect Maternity Photos”.

When should my little bundle’s very first photo shoot be?
I prefer to photograph newborns when they are between 5 and 10 days old. If you hope to capture all those super tiny details in the cute sleepy poses, it’s important to do them before they are two weeks old. If you are looking for my natural, lifestyle photos, there is more flexibility on when we do your session. Either way, timing is very important. Your precious little bundle will only be that tiny once! If you have questions about specific timing or need clarification unique to your situation, please reach out in advance, if possible.

What should we wear during our photo session?
I encourage clients to wear coordinating/complimentary colors, as opposed to clothing that completely matches. Also, avoid bold patterns, big logos or trendy looks. My goal is for your photos to be classic and timeless. We want the focus to be on the emotion you and your family bring to an image, not your super funky, fun colored hat. ;-) If you have still questions what to wear, Pinterest is always a great place to explore for ideas to fit your session theme or season.

Savvy Images Mobile Studio Set UpWhat exactly is a mobile newborn studio?
I pack up everything necessary for a successful newborn session and bring it to your home! A posing bag, backgrounds, lighting, and even props. I have a white noise app and a heating pad handy to help soothe fussy newbies. And waterproof pads and wipes for any little potty accidents that (probably will) happen. It tends to be less stress on you and your new little bundle.  We take snack breaks as needed, and can incorporate the nursery or parts of your home in the shoot for more lifestyle type photos.

Do you post photos from all your sessions online?
Absolutely not. Especially from my boudoir sessions, as I get approval on anything and everything that is posted. But regardless of the type of session, if you prefer that your photos not be publicized, I am perfectly okay with that. Your privacy is very important to me. Just let me know and we’ll make a note stating so on your photography contract.

More coming soon to keep you fully informed. But in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us now if you have any questions!
