Frequently asked questions Part 1

A little snippet of some of the most asked questions.

How do I Book ?

You can request more information by emailing or using the contact form located here.

What kind of payment do you accept?  

I accept Cash, Checks, Credit & Debit. Your session fee is due at the time of booking. Please make checks payable to Andria Lancaster Photography.

Maternity Photography Sessions

I offer indoor and outdoor Maternity photography sessions. Week 32-36 is a great time to have your session. I recommend booking around week 20 so we can start planning!

Newborn Photography Sessions

Newborn photography sessions take place at 10 am in my home on a Sunday or on weekday evenings.  Once you have booked, you will be sent a Newborn Prep Guide to help you get ready for your session. This includes clothing suggestions, and how to ensure your baby stays sleepy for his/her session. A sleepy baby between 5-25 days old will help achieve those adorable poses you see in my portfolio.

I’m having a baby soon and would like to schedule a newborn photo session. What should I do?  

I encourage all of my clients to contact me in their 2nd trimester (earlier or later is fine too). I will get your name on my calendar and have you pay your Session Fee and sign contract to reserve your session.  Once your baby arrives you can contact me and we will book your session sometime before day 25.

Newborn sessions should be done sometime between days 5-25. This is when they sleep the most, and still have their amazing flexibility, which allow for those adorable positions.

Where do you Photograph your newborns? And do you travel?

Newborns, on up to 1 year old, I do solely in my home (depending on your situation after birth I may travel to you).  Due to the amount of equipment and supplies that I have, it takes time to pack and travel then setup. I keep my house and the room I photograph in very clean and sanitized, and am very conscious that your trip to my studio is normally baby’s first time out. I take very seriously the health and safety of the newborns that arrive here.

How should I dress for photos with my newborn?  

I encourage mom and dad to wear light neutral basic colors. Tans, whites, and blacks all work great. The simpler the better. Basic tee’s and tank tops are perfect. No zippers or buttons. Feel free to come in comfy clothes, and I will let you know when we will be doing your photos with baby.
