 Hair and Make up can take about 1 1/2 hours and the photo session can take about 1 hour if it's in studio, if you want outdoor session you'll have to allow time to travel to a local park.   I would allow about 2 1/2 -3 1/2 hours in total.

Maternity Process


I cannot recommend Joanna enough! We went to her for newborn pictures and had the most amazing experience. She is such a genuinely kind person who I completely trusted with our newborn. She also had our preliminary pictures back to us the same day and we could not be happier. I am so glad we not only had the pleasure of working with her but also just meeting someone who made it such an enjoyable memorable experience!

"She made it such an enjoyable & memorable experience!."


Joanna has a special gift for working with newborns. She handled our two-week old baby with the utmost care. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture their newborn's first images. We were so pleased with the images and appreciate her expertise and professionalism. We also worked with Joanna for our baby announcements, the quality of which was far superior than any mail-order program. Joanna: Thank You for capturing this very special moment in time for our family. We will treasure the images always.
With appreciation!
