Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is your business called "Ten Toes Photography"?
A: When I first thought of starting a photography business, my passion was (and still is) Newborn photography. I was thinking about that whole experience of those first few breathless moments when you see your precious new baby and when you hold them, how you scrutinize every millimeter of their little bodies - and you find yourself counting to make sure they have 10 fingers and 10 toes.....and so began "Ten Toes Photography"
Q: How far in advance should I schedule my session?
A: Typically 2 weeks in advance is sufficient. However during the Holiday season (Oct-Dec) it is best to schedule 4-6 weeks in advance to ensure securing a time that works best for everyone in your family
Q: How should I prepare for my Newborn Session
A: Newborn sessions are best done in the first 2 weeks of your baby's birth. If you are scheduled for a C-Section, you should book your newborn session before your surgery. For normal deliveries, please call and schedule as soon as you are able. Have an extra shirt handy for each parent as I take a lot of pictures of your baby naked and you may get peed or pooped on! ;) If you are able, it helps to have a bottle of expressed milk or formula for feeding during the session. Keep in mind that a newborn session takes a while (2-2.5 hours).
Q: How far are you willing to travel?
A: I enjoy getting outside and doing on-location shoots immensely! Most of my outdoor sessions take me to Chico, Durham, Oroville and Orland, CA. There is a $25 location fee for sessions within a 30 minute drive. I love the opportunity to explore new landscapes and backdrops and am willing to travel further. Please contact me for more information if this is something that you are interested in.
