What To Expect
Booking a Session
Maternity Photography | The best time to book your session is in your second trimester so that we can photograph mom at 32 to 36 weeks.
Newborn Photography | It's never too early to book your newborn session. The perfect time for your newborn session is before your baby is 12 days old. If you know your due date, we can schedule within the 12 day mark and adjust according to your baby's time table.
Baby Photography | Baby's first year produces amazing milestones for you and your family. Let us capture the connection between you and your new bundle of joy, his new personality, her first tooth, and the cake smash. Our "Watch Me Grow" program offers beautiful imagery at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year. These packages are all-inclusive and deeply discounted. Only want one session? No problem! The best time for a single session is at 6 - 8 months when baby is sitting on their own and full of giggles and personality.
Children Photography | Now is the time to capture your child. She cut her own hair? He's at an awkward stage? She has braces? NONE of those reasons are good reasons to wait. Let us capture your children as they are right now. Beautiful and happy.
Before Your Session
We will schedule an in-person or telephone consultation appointment to discuss colors, props, packages, products and payment schedule.
During Your Session
We have a beautiful assortment of props, hats, hair pieces and knitted items in cashmere, angora and merino wool for use in our photography sessions. There is no need to bring anything for your baby unless you have a special item that you would like included in your session. We keep the studio at 85 degrees so that your newborn is warm and comfortable throughout the session. We will do the family (mommy/daddy/sibling) photography poses first so that you can relax and enjoy the rest of the session. No outside photography allowed. We ask that you do not photograph during our session as it creates a huge distraction.
After Your Session
Once your photography session is complete, we will schedule a follow-up image review consultation a couple week or so from your session date. This is the time that you will be able to see the portraits from your session. Bring all decision-makers and a method of payment to complete your order.
We will show you a slide show of your session as well as a variety of our products. We will help you create or decide on package that meets your needs.
Full payment or payment arrangements will be finalized at this time when you place your order. We accept cash and all major credit cards. Ask u about our convenient payment plans. Finally, you will pick up your order a few weeks later. The time frame on orders depends largely on the type of products you select, and varies accordingly.
Expect a four to six week processing time for press printed books and albums.
When your order is ready, we will call you for pickup.
NOTE: While Diane Bartoo Photography makes every effort to protect files, we can not guarantee the availability of images that are not ordered after 90 days.
