The Process

Session Information:

We are a full service studio who provides photography for newborn babies, children, teenagers, couples and families.  Most appointments are scheduled between 9am-5pm on weekdays, however we do schedule some evening appointments also.  

Our weekend appointments book very quickly!  If there is a Saturday date you or your family are interested in, even if it's many months in advance, please contact us to be sure we can save your date.

Our studio is located two miles north of Fairfield on 10 acres.  We have a large studio with many backdrops available to use for your session and several outside areas on our property which make great backdrops!

We also love photographing in new locations! Please feel free to share your ideas...barns, creeks, a meadow, old buildings...please share! Depending on the location, we may charge a travel fee. 



Deposit Information:

We do require a $200 deposit at the time of booking your appointment. It is required to hold and confirm your appointment time and date. If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, please contact us immediately and we can reschedule. Your deposit will transfer to another date/time, but it is nonrefundable. It is applied to your account as a portrait credit and will be available for you to use at the time you place your print/product order.

How do I pay for the deposit? --- We would be happy to take a credit or debit card over the phone by calling 618-599-0819. If you choose to mail a check, we will hold your appointment for one week. Unfortunately, if payment is not received within that week, we will have to forfeit your appointment.
