– Good Information to Have –
Although there is no specific amount of allotted time, portrait sessions are generally 1 hour long (newborns generally take 2-3 hours) and take place at the Andover, MA studio, a nearby park or your home. Due to the nature of newborn sessions, all newborn sessions take place at the studio Monday through Friday.
All full sessions include siblings and parents at no extra charge. This is important to me! I want to include you if you’d like to be included. There are up to five people covered in the session fee. If you’d like to invite Grandma, or your kids’ special Auntie, no problem! You can add additional people for a fee. Your gallery will ultimately be bigger and there is a larger minimum order required for family portraits with over 5 people so please contact me today for your custom quote.
Your portraits will be hand edited resulting in a gallery of at least 30 color images plus black and white conversions for a total of 60 images. Around 2-3 weeks after the date of your session your in-person or online gallery viewing, design and ordering consultation will take place.
There is a 50% retainer due at time of booking to reserve your due date or specific session time and date. The remainder is due on the date of the session. There are payment plans available.
Please note the studio is open Monday – Friday with rare exceptions for pre-planned mini sessions.
Mini Milestone Session
(Mini sessions are not always available to be booked. Please contact Kate to inquire today.)
Mini milestone sessions include one child only and are shorter in time than a full length session. All mini milestone sessions take place at the studio. Your gallery will include at least 10 hand edited, professionally retouched images to choose from. Those color portraits are converted to black and white for a total of 20 photos. All digital files are included in the price and you will automatically receive those.

Mini Milestone Session Marathon Days
A few times a year special mini session days are planned for you to get your family or child’s portrait updated.
