Frequently Asked Questions:
*Where will my newborn session take place?
Newborn sessions are held in my home studio in Camby, IN. I understand sometimes it is not possible to travel to my studio, please contact me directly to talk about travel newborn sessions! The studio is fully prepped for your new baby and family. You do not need to bring anything but baby & milk!
*When should I book my session?
Lori Margason Photography books 6+ months in advance, as I take on a limited amount of sessions per week. This ensures that each newborn and family photography session is given the BEST!
*How do I reserve my session?
A session retainer fee of $75 is required to secure all sessions, this fee covers time with a license and insured photographer, full access to the entire prop collection, and creative post-processing.
*Do I have permission to print the photos? Can I use them online?
Most packages include an online gallery and a USB of digital images (for additional purchase). In addition to the USB, portrait clients receive a personal usage release that allows you to print the images at any photo lab of your choice for friends & family! You may not sell, edit, alter, or advertise the images in any way. If you share your photos anywhere online please give credit to the photographer, Lori Margason Photography.
The session retainer fee is due to reserve your due date or book sessions on my calendar. Final payment is due the day prior to the session date.
*When do you book your maternity/newborn/milestone session?
Maternity and/or Newborn sessions: It is HIGHLY recommended that you reserve these sessions in advance. Please do not wait. Once your newborn arrives we can be sure to schedule the baby within the first 2-3 weeks after birth while they’re still sleepy for those curly poses. Occasionally there are last-minute openings.
Due to the amount of returning clients that continue to book milestones and family portraits year after year, dates available to the public must be booked several months in advance to ensure available sessions as a new client. Current clients are already on the calendar for the following year.
*How long will the session last?
A typical newborn session takes 2-3 hours to accommodate feedings, diaper changes, and transitioning between poses. Milestone, maternity, and family sessions average 20-60 minutes. I adjust to each individual baby’s needs.
*Do I need to bring anything to a newborn session?
Just the baby and the diaper bag! Everything needed for a newborn session including all photography props are available. There is no need to bring additional items. Many store purchased items are too large for newborns!
*What kind of props do you have in your studio?
The studio is stocked with adorable handmade custom-sized props to use during your session! Bonnets, sleepy caps, beanies, headbands, wraps, textured knitted layers, quilts, buckets, bowls, and outfits. The inventory is always growing!
