Frequently Asked:


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 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.


When can you see the final images?
The current turnaround for final images typically 2 weeks after your session.  During busier seasons, this might be affected.


Payment Terms: 
The session retainer fee is due to reserve your due date or book sessions on my calendar.  Final payment is due 1 day prior to the session date.  I do allow payment plan options, please ask!


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.

Milestone and family sessions should be scheduled a minimum of 1-3 months in advance.  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!

Full Newborn Session with digitals: $550
A retainer fee of $150 is due at the time of booking and goes towards the final balance due at the time of the session. With any newborn, there is no real-time limit for sessions, but they typically last anywhere from 1-3 hours to allow for feedings, etc. Packages include a minimum of 40 hand edited images. Sessions take place in my studio located in Camby, IN, which is fully stocked full of newborn goodies. The session can also take place in the comfort of your home for an additional fee! Please ask :) Parents & siblings are allowed in this session! 
Fresh 48 At Home Session - $675
In the comfort of your own home, we capture the sweetness of that fresh baby, and you soaking up everything new about the new miracle and the tiny things we often forget.  The session can take place in the nursery, living room, master bedroom, or room of your choice! The more natural light, the better. If your home doesn't have great natural light, please let me know! Images are delivered via an online gallery. This is for newborns & immediate family only. Additional family members I.e. grandparents, great grandparents, etc. are an additional $325. 
Maternity - $325
A 20-minute session takes place at my indoor/outdoor studio location, located in Camby, IN. Maternity dresses/gowns are available for use. 
Labor & Delivery {BIRTH day} - $1525
photographer on call 24/7 from 37 weeks pregnancy until delivery day.  The session takes place at your hospital of choice to capture those candid fresh baby & family moments that you want to remember and we often forget. Images are delivered via an online gallery.  
I have a full variety of props, headbands, hats, little pants, wraps, etc. for the new baby,
and highly suggest that no outfits be used at this age.  There is no need to bring anything to your session for the baby :)  If you are planning on bringing any items you would like to use, I must be notified prior to the session so I can plan the shoot accordingly to try to incorporate these items.  Digital RAW files are never released to the customer, nor are offered to be viewed via soft proofing, etc. 
The session is best for newborns 18 days and under but I have been successful at posing older newborns if you miss that window.  

Session retainers are non-refundable.
