Baby Photography FAQ

Queensbury, NY

Why choose our studio for your baby photos?

At our photo studio, we put your experience first every time. Getting baby photos should never be stressful, chaotic, or rushed. We take our time to make sure your baby is comfortable and that you both have a good time. Our studio is also very private and quiet, so you won’t have people coming/going or watching you as we take your photos!

Our second biggest priority is delivering stunning, artistic baby photos that you will be obsessed with! We have put an extreme amount of effort into giving our studio a boho aesthetic and picking out the cutest props & decor. One of our photo rooms is dedicated specifically to baby pictures, with plenty of options for a variety of photos. We also use professional cameras, lenses, and lighting equipment to deliver stunningly high quality images.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When should I schedule my newborn / baby session?

    We recommend scheduling your photos as soon as you can! As long as you have an anticipated due date, we can get you booked. Our schedule tends to fill up fast, so the earlier you book, the more likely we’ll be able to secure a spot that’s perfect timing for you and your baby. That said, don’t let that stop you from reaching out if you’re further along in your pregnancy! We’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.

  • How soon after birth should I have my newborn session?

    The sweet spot for newborn photos is between 5-14 days after birth. This is because baby is generally the most flexible and sleepy during this time, which allows for all those adorable poses! We can absolutely take photos after 14 days - just know that your baby may be a little more stretched out and wiggly.

  • How do I book without knowing exactly when my session will take place?

    Great question! As you know, sometimes your baby has their own agenda regarding when they will make their grand entrance into the world. When you book with us, we will place you on a priority list for you to schedule your session as soon as you give birth. All you’ll need to do is text us and we will get your session set up right away.

  • Do you provide props and outfits for baby photos?

    Yes! We have a variety of props, outfit changes, and backdrops available for your baby session. If you have anything specific in mind, don’t hesitate to reach out and we’ll let you know if we have it or have something similar. Additionally, if you have any sentimental/personal items that you’d like to be included in your photos, you’re more than welcome to bring those!

  • What am I responsible for bringing to our photo session?

    While we have plenty of outfits and props on hand, we just ask that you bring the basics! Usually this includes milk, pacifier, diapers, and wipes.

  • What is the best time of day for baby photos?

    We strongly recommend scheduling your session for the morning or mid morning. The most ideal time will also depend on your baby’s sleep schedule, as we’ll want to start photos as soon after their morning nap as possible.

  • Can siblings + other family members be involved in the photos?

    We do offer family sessions where we can involve more people than just your baby. Our three baby photo options are baby only, baby + parents, and baby + family.

  • How much does a baby photography session cost?

    The price ranges depending on a few factors (e.g. will other family members be involved in the session?) Our starting price is $375, which includes 15 web-sized photos. Print products and print-size files are sold separately.

  • How soon will I receive the photos after my session?

    Your photos are guaranteed to be available within 3 weeks after your session, but we try to get them back to you as soon as possible!

  • Where will the baby session take place? Do you travel?

    We can book an in-home session, but most baby photo sessions take place in our studio in Queensbury, NY. Pricing for in-home sessions depends on the distance we’ll need to travel. You can call us at (518)338-3129 if you have any questions!

  • What should we wear for the photos?

    We recommend any family members that will be involved in photos to stick to neutral colors or black and avoid busy patterns. This way your baby can have the spotlight in your photos.

  • Are you able to edit out skin blemishes, flaky skin, etc.?

    Definitely! Just let us know during your session what blemishes you’d like to be edited out, if any.

  • What types of prints or photo products do you offer?

    When you receive your gallery, you will have the option to purchase prints, albums, and other photo products. Alternatively, you can purchase print-sized files to be able to purchase products independently.

  • How long do baby photo sessions take?

    Generally we reserve 90 minutes for a newborn shoot. Sometimes your baby is running the show and we’re on their timeline! You may have to take several breaks throughout the session for feedings, changing, burping, etc. We don’t want you or your baby to feel rushed throughout this process.

  • What kind of safety precautions do you take for baby photos?

    Your baby’s safety is without a doubt our #1 priority. We are extremely cautious to wash our hands before your session. Additionally, if you prefer, we are more than happy to wear face masks during your session. We just ask that you let us know ahead of time so that we can be prepared. We are also careful to sanitize between each client to ensure you and your baby are in the safest environment possible.
