From your pre-session to your custom products, I work hard to deliver a one of a kind experience for my clients! Clients typically invest in a wide variety of art pieces for the home, gifts for family and friends, and fine art keepsakes after their Little Peanut Photography session. The session fee is paid in advance to secure your chosen date. Session fees are non-refundable in the event of a cancellation, but may be transferred to another date if 48 hours' notice is given. Session fees include photographer's time and talent, pre-session editing, portrait preview, order preparation and fulfillment, and custom design work. We'll call or email you to go over the details of your session. we'll keep an eye on the weather forecast and contact you (the day of or day before your session) if we feel the session may need to be moved earlier or later in the day or re-scheduled.
We will then meet for your photography session, have loads of fun and capture wonderful memories for your family to cherish for a lifetime.
Before Your Session
Before you leave your session, or within a week, we will contact you to schedule your in-person ordering appointment where you will preview the images, as well as order your prints and products. The appointment generally takes an hour. Once your order is ready we will contact you via phone or email.
Please feel at ease at your session. If pressured to "smile", natural expressions may be lost. Many of the wonderful images we capture are the "in-between" shoots, when the subject relaxes and smiles. Photo sessions are work for both subject and photographer but we've got tricks that make it fun and easy so don't worry and don't try too hard! Relax, it's your day!
Good choices in clothing is one of the key elements of a great photo session! For group sessions, clothing should be coordinated. Clothing should be simple and timeless. Favorites are jeans, button ups/polo shirts, sundresses, sandals and bare feet. (Large, busy prints, checkered patterns and geometrical designs don't photograph well). I'll be checking in with you to chat about clothing choices. It is typically easiest to pick one outfit and then choose colors from that outfit that compliment each other. It's a great idea to plan the outfits at least 2 weeks before the session. Lay them out on a bed, stp back and take a look. Once you're happy with your choices, make sure they are clean and wrinkly-free, then set them aside for your session. Don't forget about shoes and the most overlooked item...the socks! yes, the socks are important...(the color). This will lower your stress level on session day! Clients are encouraged to include their own props. Examples are: A family quilt/heirloom, sports equipment, a favorite book, special toy or a family pet.

We ask that all clients call or email within 24-48 hours of having your baby. Most babies are booked within the first 8-14 days depending on the babys weight. If you know you're going to deliver early we ask that you let us know as soon as you do so we have can adjust and reschedule.
I missed the newborn window and my baby is now 2 months old is it too late?
