Booking Information

How to book?

Super Easy!  Send me a email through the contact tab and we will get you all setup.

When to book?

Typically, clients book 1-2 months in advance. If you're booking birth or newborn, booking earlier is better. This allows enough time for pre-consultations plus a little wiggle room since theses sessions depend on your new little one's arrival.

What do I need to book?

I do require a retainer to lock in the session date. This retainer does not include any products. Remaining balance is due 2 weeks before the session. Hope Believe Photography contract does require you chose a product package at the time of signing.

Session retainer?

The session retainer does not include products. The retainer covers HBP's time, talent, post-processing, gallery of at least 40 images, travel time, pre-consultation, and viewing session after. Digital and print packages are available here:

Session Time / Length?

Sessions start 2 hours before sunset for outdoor sessions. Most sessions last 1-1 1/2 hours. Newborn sessions last 2-4 hours depending on your new little one. For birth sessions, I arrive at 5cm and stay until 1-2 hours after birth.


I do a pre-consultation to go over any questions and the prep packets with you and your family. The pre-consult usually takes place 1-2 weeks prior to session date. We can meet at your home or even grab a coffee, whichever fits your schedule best.

Viewing session

I will setup a viewing session once your gallery if finished. This typically takes place at your home or at a coffee shop near you. The viewing session lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You will be able to view your full gallery and have the option at that time up upgrade your package.


How many images?

At the viewing session, you will see a gallery of 40 images.

All color images / All black & white images?

Your gallery will come with both color and black & white images.


Galleries are ready within 14 days.
