What to Expect

Booking your session at least a month in advance is highly recommended to make sure we can secure your date! It also gives us the option to meet over a coffee or Zoom meeting if you'd like! This will help us get to know each other a bit and answer any questions you may have. 
Once you book, a portion of your collection total is due and is a non-refundable deposit. This insures you get your date and time.
 Newborn sessions takes place in the comfort of your own home or home of your choice. Maternity sessions can also be done in home or outdoors. Other portrait sessions usually take place in an agreed upon outdoor location. All sessions are done with natural light. It is recommended that newborn photos be done no later than 14 days after birth BUT because of the lifestyle/baby guided nature of the session, 
we welcome babies of any age! 

 how a lifestyle newborn or portrait session works with Renee Samantha Photography!

MORe >

There is no unnatural posing (hands under chin etc.) There is still some level of guidance with parent and sibling shots, but still left very organic. Cuddling is 100% encouraged! A few wraps and blankets are brought to your home for newborn sessions but we will help you pick out a few wraps of your own! Neutral and soft coloured clothing is preferred and we send along some inspiration to help you decide! You are always welcome to include special items of your own into your session as well.

Photography can be a bit of an investment but definitely worth it! We do encourage printing your images, but do offer digitals as well. The time and effort that goes into the session before, during and after guarantees quality professional images and service that we promise! You will have these memories forever and for generations to come! Reliving a moment through photographs is one of the best treasures you can have! Remembering how it felt to be pregnant for the first time or how tiny your newborn was in your arms is priceless. 

Please contact us with any other questions you may have. We can’t wait to preserve these memories for you!

 Baby can be 100% baby and you can be 100% you!

Q&A >

1. What do we wear? 
Please wear something you are comfortable in, but not sweatpants level comfortable!
Neutral colours are preferred (whites/creams, greys, browns etc.) or pastels. They are much more flattering for skin tones and aren't distracting. 

2. When do we get our images?
Your proof gallery will be sent to you to view and choose your images no longer than 2-3 weeks after your session!
I am just as excited for you to see them as you are and there are always some sneak peeks along the way!

3. Are siblings included? 

Yes! Parents and siblings are definitely encouraged to be part of the session!
 More than 2 children (including newborn) are an
additional $25 each, as more time maybe needed for the session.

4. How long do sessions last?
Newborn sessions are never rushed but also won't take up half of your day.
They usually take about 2-2.5 hours. Baby is always welcome to feed and be changed as needed.
Family and maternity seasons are usually 1-1.5 hours in length.

5. What happens if baby doesn’t cooperate?
No need to worry! We always make sure baby is comfortable and happy. But if for the odd reason it just isn’t baby’s day we can always reschedule* 
*under photographers discretion.
