NOTES:

It is recommended that newborn photos be taken in the first week to two weeks.

Location permit fees: please be aware that several popular locations do require a permit in order to use their facility for professional photography. In order to keep my costs low, I cannot fully absorb that fee. Cantigny and the Morton Arboretum are 2 such locations (they are often requested).  However, there are plenty of fee-free locations that I am happy to recommend.

A session agreement and a 50% deposit are due at the time of booking and will be applied to session fee. The remainder is due the day of the session. Deposits are to reserve your time and date.   Deposits are non-­refundable.


I am a naturallight photographer and prefer to photograph in the morning and later afternoon but can absolutely work with a time that is best for you and your family. With the exception of newborn photos, I typically photograph outdoors. Deposits are transferable to an agreeable date should inclement weather prohibit photography.
