Capturing those precious moments of your newborn's early days is a decision you'll cherish forever. Newborn photos hold a unique power, allowing you to freeze time and relive those fleeting moments when your little one was at their tiniest. These images not only serve as a beautiful reminder of the incredible love and joy your baby has brought into your life but also document their earliest milestones. As your child grows, these photos become a timeless connection to their beginning, a glimpse into their first yawns, smiles, and the impossibly small details that change all too quickly. Professional newborn photography provides a valuable keepsake, preserving the purity and innocence of your baby, and offering you the opportunity to share these precious memories with family and friends, creating a treasure trove of love and nostalgia for generations to come.

"Had an amazing experience from start to finish. Newborn photos were beautifully done and got them back in a timely manner. She made it easy and fun and I would highly recommend to anyone."

-Ashley Hill

Before you even look at my prices I want you to know this:

Having quality photos shouldn’t pose a doubt in your mind, especially if it is because of a financial hardship. It breaks my heart to hear that families go without photos due to finances. This is why I offer payment plans. There are SO MANY ways we can split payment. So, if you’re struggling, know that I hear you and I have been there personally. We got this. Let's figure it out together.

"Cathy is wonderful to work with! I typically find flaws in photos of myself, and rarely appreciate the outcome, but throughout our family shoot she made me feel beautiful inside and out, and helped me appreciate the details of being a parent during our shoot. Additionally she rolled with the punches that my very shy daughter threw at her, and worked to win her over and got some incredible smiles out. She’s incredibly personable and her work is one of a kind!"

-Mariah Kaiser

How do I book a shoot?

Your first step is to contact me! A quick initial phone or zoom call is the best way to get to know each other, see if weโ€™re a good fit, and go over any pre-booking questions about the portrait process, available dates, and locations.

Do you offer payment plans?

I sure do! We can break any price down into any payment that you can handle! The session fee MUST be paid for prior to any photographic work being done and you will not receive your images until they are paid in full.

What is your typical timeline?

I typically book out two months ahead.
You'll typically have access to a proofing gallery of all your images within two weeks of your session. After receiving your favorites, it takes me approximately two weeks to finish the editing process and to send out your finalized gallery.

What payment methods are available?

I accept cash and all major credit cards.

Do you have a referral program?

YES! I like to provide extra images when referring AND being referred by someone!

What if I don't want my session blogged or posted on social media?

I completely respect your right to privacy. If you would prefer to not have your images posted on social media or on the Family Focused Photography blog, I will refrain from doing so. Do note that your images will be uploaded to an online gallery, but this is password protected and nobody else can access your images except for you.

Can I share my online gallery with other people?

Absolutely! Sometimes it's nice to have others look through your images to help you decide which pictures to print. If you have opted for a password protected gallery, they'll just need your password to access the gallery.

Can I order my prints and products at your studio?

Sure thing! I am happy to provide custom ordering sessions at the studio. This is a complimentary service that's typically scheduled a month after your photo shoot. Alternatively, you can order all your prints and products online in your own home.

What happens if I don't like a print or product?

We stand by the quality of our prints and products and want to make sure that you are absolutely thrilled with them. If there is an issue with your order, we will work diligently to replace the affected items in a timely manner.

Can I get a refund on digitals?

Due to the nature of the product being unable to be physically returned, I cannot refund any digital purchases.

I still have another question. How can I contact you?

Feel free to call, email or even text whenever you need to at 260-214-0470 or
I always try to respond within 24 hours.
