How far in advance should we book our session?

At Asheville Portrait Company, we value family & try really hard to prioritize having a Healthy Work / Life Balance. We believe that it directly affects our attitude, energy, creativity and ultimately our success.
As such, we can only take on 5 Newborn Portrait Session Bookings each month. We encourage you to book you session as far in advance as possible to ensure availability for your baby!

Frequently asked questions

How does this work?

All that's required to reserve your Newborn Session on my shoot calendar is a $400 Creative Fee & a Signed Portrait Session Contract. After that, I'll put your due date on my shoot calendar as a tentative place holder & we'll go ahead and schedule your Pre-Session Phone Consultation to chat about your session, to plan for it in terms of theme, color pallet, props needed, etc. You'll just let me know once baby arrives & we'll get you into the studio following week!

Frequently asked questions

How long do Newborn Sessions last?
.
I typically schedule newborn sessions between 
9am - 1pm. You'll have (up to) 4hrs with me in my studio! Newborn Portrait Sessions at my studio are entirely baby led! Much of our time is spent feeding, changing and soothing baby to sleep so that we can get those sweet, sleepy shots that everyone loves! If baby is full, content and sleepy, you could be in and out in two hours! But, if baby is unsettled, having tummy trouble or in a growth spurt & cluster feeding, the session may take the entire four hour time block!
(Please let me know ahead of time if baby is having tummy trouble or cluster feeding, we'll simply re-schedule for a few days later to make it easier on everyone!)

Frequently asked questions

What should we wear?

You’ll want to dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable and confident!
I have a client closet full of beautiful & flattering flowy, Baltic Born dresses for moms! 
I am happy to help you to put together your wardrobe for the session OR you can borrow something from my client closet at the studio if you'd like! 
I typically recommend that parents wear white, pastels, gray or black depending on the vibe of the portrait session (we'll discuss this in detail during your pre-session phone consultation) AND you'll get more inspiration from my Client Prep Guide! 

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to bring props?

Nope! I have a giant catalogue of Newborn props for use! I have shelves full of bowls, baskets, boxes, buckets and baby beds! I have wraps in every color imaginable, a whole rack of knit hats, sleepy caps, headbands, crowns and bows!
AND each of my Newborn Sessions is completely custom! During your pre-session phone consultation, we'll chat about theme and color pallet and I will order anything that's needed to make your newborn photo dreams come true! 

Frequently asked questions

What about Grandparents?

Absolutely!
 If they're in town, bring them! I'm sure that they would simply adore having a beautiful portrait with their new grandchild! 

Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

What is your cancellation policy?

Due to high demand and limited availability, Creative Fees are non-refundable for any reason.
In the event of illness, inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, we will simply re-schedule for the very next available date / time that works for both of us!
