everything you need to know about booking a session with us
first things first.
How do we schedule an appointment?
We are at our studio by appointment only. Please book in advance to allow for more flexibility with scheduling. We recently set up a "self booking" option available on our booking site. Please let us know if you have any questions. Our preferred method of communication is email- email@example.com or text- 423.912.0141
How soon do you shoot newborn sessions? How can we prepare?
Newborn sessions are best shot in the first two weeks of life. Please make contact in advance, if possible, to pre-schedule the session. We will schedule based on your due date or induction date and can adjust it later if baby comes earlier or later than expected.
We have catered our work flow to lessen disruption to baby, our goal is to have a sleepy, calm baby for the duration of your session. This allows us to get those curled and posed shots you see in our portfolio. For this reason we advise against outfits for newborn sessions as clothing changes are very disruptive to a sleeping newborn. We have everything we need as far as blankets, swaddles, props, etc. All you need to bring is your new little one! If you have something sentimental or important we will do our best to accommodate you!
We need you to feed baby well right before you come & bring a passy. The session lasts one hour so please arrive on time with baby already fed and ready to start. Family poses can be included at no additional cost. We recommend neutral color clothing choices for family members. We will keep it warm in the studio for the session so dress accordingly.
What other sessions do you offer? How much does it cost?
We photograph maternity, babies of all ages, children, and their families. Sessions can be booked as a 30 minute session or one hour session. All of our pricing info can be found at the bottom of this page.

We have a commercial studio space conveniently located right off I-75 in the Powell area. Address: 6767 Jubilee Center Way, Suite 103, Knoxville, TN 37912
Portrait Sessions range from $250-$450

What is your turn-around time?
From the time of your shoot, we estimate a two week turn-around, but it is usually just a few days. You will receive your online proofing gallery via email. You can order prints or download files directly from the site. If you want to ensure quicker turn-around, we offer a 72 hour delivery for $72.
Who do you recommend for printing and backup?
We recommend www.mpix.com for printing. We highly encourage you to back your photos up not only to a computer or USB, but also an online storage backup like dropbox. We only keep your photos archived for 3 years so it is really important for you to take the time to do this!
What precautions have you taken for Covid-19?
We are both fully vaccinated, and the studio is frequently sanitized and cleaned. We practice frequent hand-washing and will wear a mask at your request. Please reschedule your appointment if you have Covid-19 or are unwell. We will do the same.
How can I keep up with what's going on?
We actively post and update our blog, Facebook, and Instagram . We also have an email list you can join for announcements on seasonal sessions!
