Amy and her team were wonderful to work with!

She was the photographer for my wedding and I couldn't have been happier with the work she did. She managed to make everyone feel at ease and helped to make the day stress-free! I was amazed at how fast she was able to get my photos back to me and even more amazed at how beautiful they were!

Frequently Asked Questions:

+ Where should we hold our session?

There are so many fantastic portrait location options in the Richmond area! One of the many reasons that this city has my heart! I also love to travel, so if you have an out-of-town location in mind, please let me know, and I can provide out-of-area travel investment information. See some of my favorite places here!

+ When will we receive our photos?

Your full gallery of proofs will be delivered within 7-10 days (sometimes sooner) of your session. You will receive a link to your private online gallery via email. You will have the opportunity to choose your favorites and select your images for printing. I will also provide a sharable link, so go ahead and share the joy!

+ How should we prepare for our session? 

What you wear for photos is so important! For my best advice, scroll down to this page's “Resource Library” section. There, you’ll find everything you need to prepare for your session. Read more about how to prepare for your sessions here!

Yes! Some may be included in your photography package, and you can order additional items through your online gallery.

Newborn & Milestones

+ Can you help plan a surprise proposal? 

Absolutely! Reach out to give me the deets and we’ll plan the perfect proposal.

+ Can you help us create a timeline? 

Yes! All of my wedding collections include full timeline planning. 

+ What happens if you can’t make it on our wedding day?

If I can't make it the day of the wedding, your second shooter is already prepared to step in and take over. I will do everything in my power to secure an additional shooter if that is included in your package. If that is not possible, I will refund your money for any unfulfilled position. 

+ What if we need to postpone or cancel our original wedding date?

Wedding deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. This is because your date is secured for you and you alone.

+ What should my child wear to their session?

If you have a vision and have selected an outfit(s), WONDERFUL! If not, here are my best tips:
  1. I love a "simple dimple" look, a plain background, and minimal props so the whole focus is on your precious baby! 
  2. I recommend jeans or overalls with no shirt or a simple solid romper for boys. I suggest a clean and simple romper or body suit for girls. If you go with a dress, ensure you have a diaper cover or bloomers. 
  3. If you want to get a little more themed, coordinate with the party colors. You can also choose a topic they are really into, like dinosaurs, princesses, rainbows, trucks, or animals. 
  4. If you want my feedback on a particular idea or outfit, send me the link; I am happy to make recommendations!

Every session is customized, so share your vision or ask for inspiration! I am here to help. 

+ What should we bring to a family portrait session?

Other than your smiling faces, I suggest bringing a few things to help your family feel comfortable and happy.
  1. If it's warm, I recommend bringing a water bottle. Sometimes, a sip of water can cure any ailment!
  2. If it's chilly and you don't plan to wear jackets in your portraits, I suggest bringing them so you can warm up in between sets. Even a big, cozy blanket to wrap around the kiddos is a quick and easy solution for a fast warm-up! 
  3. Feel free to bring your child's favorite toy or anything to make them comfortable.


For more tips, check out my prep guides!

+ What's the Best Age for Newborn Photography?

The sweet spot is 5-10 days post-birth, if possible. The earlier, the better! 

+ How long does a newborn session take?

Newborn sessions take 2-3 hours, depending on your baby’s mood. Patience is key here! 

+ Can I include siblings and family in the session?

Of course! In fact, I encourage it. Even if you don't feel like a supermodel, you will not regret being in such important photos.

Amy was amazing from start to finish! We cannot recommend her enough. 

She promptly replied to my email inquiry, was able to accommodate a last-minute special request, and we received our photos for viewing quickly after our session (much faster than expected). She worked great with our kids (ages 12, 9, and 18 months), and made everyone feel comfortable right away. She was personable and professional. We will definitely be repeat clients!
