Baby blocks on pregnant belly by Phoenix maternity photographer, OrcatekHere are some answers to the most common questions we receive.  If you don’t find the answer here, just call us 602.432.1541 

How should I prepare for my session?

When you schedule your appointment we will consult with you about your photo shoot and discuss everything you need to know to make your session perfect.

When should I get my newborn photos done?

We like to do the newborn photo shoot during the first week.  They change so fast, you don’t want to miss out.  We also have an option of a first year package which includes 1 week, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year shoots.   A perfect way to record those memories of your baby.

Is retouching included?

Retouching is part of every package but one (the cd only package).  Proper lighting a posing are the first part of a great photograph. The rest is finalized with retouching to enhance the image.  Of course we will never do more than you want.

Can I get both black & white and color photos from the same session?

Yes you can.  All photos taken during the session are available in both color and B&W.  On request we can provide proofs in both formats.

Will my photos be public?

Privacy is very important to our maternity clients, which is why we take care to keep your photos controlled. They are never shown or placed on our web site without your written permission.

Who can be in the photos?

You can pose alone, with other children, with the father or anyone else you want to create the perfect memory. Your photographer will make this family portrait special and personal.

Do you do more than just prints?

We provide prints, digital images and custom memory books to allow you to preserve this time the way that fits your lifestyle. When you visit our Phoenix studio for your session we can show you some of the options available.

How long do you keep my photos?

We keep your photos available for one full year.  Often clients come back after life has settled down a bit and want to order a few more photographs.  Or have a new collage created featuring belly and newborn baby to show before and after.
