ANNOUNCEMENT:

You should expect to book sessions approximately 2-3 months in advance as my schedule fills up very quickly, especially during peak/holiday periods.

On Location Sessions are sold out for remainder of 2021

Christmas Sessions are nearly sold out for the remainder of 2021 (only 2 Wednesday evening spots left)

Cake Smash Sessions are sold out for the remainder of 2021 

All studio sessions (milestones, birthdays, maternity, etc) are sold out for the remainder of 2021 (*exception for My First Year Package babies

Newborn Session reservations are almost sold out for remainder of 2021 and I cannot guarantee I'll be able to fit in last minute/non reserved sessions.  I have ONLY two openings for reserved spots left in October and November.  December is sold out.   I am beginning to take reservations for 2022 babies at this time.

 

The studio will close December 9th, 2021-January 3, 2022 for the holidays.  The last day to schedule any session is December 8th.

________________________

As a general rule, I strongly recommend booking/reserving your session at least 2-3 months in advance.  During peak season (especially Christmas), this is especially important because once Christmas begins, my availability for anything else becomes very limited

________________________

 

Non Christmas sessions will be transitioned back inside the main indoor studio space beginning mid October.  Please note that a restriction on the number of people allowed inside the main studio will be reinstated.  Two parents/adults may be present inside the studio during sessions and must wear masks at all times (unless being photographed) regardless of vaccination status.  **Siblings are NOT permitted in the studio, UNLESS, they are being photographed as part of the session.  Siblings (over age 2) must wear a mask until they are instructed to remove it.  Siblings are not permitted inside the studio for cake smash sessions.

***Masks are once again required for entry into either studio for all persons over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, when not actively being photographed.  Please limit non-photographed people in the studio to 2 parents only when possible.  Siblings are not permitted in studio unless they are being photographed during the session.
