Thank you for choosing me as your maternity & newborn photographer. I am looking forward to spending time with you and your family! As a mother of two, I know how important it is to capture your new little ones because they grow up so quickly.
On this page you'll find tips on how to make the best of your sessions with a little planning and preparation.
Bump to Baby Sessions
Includes a 1 hour maternity session and newborn session
You can choose a lifestyle session in your home OR a studio session in my home studio (descriptions below)
30 images from each session
Lifestyle sessions take place in your own home and are very low-key, and relaxed! This type of newborn session is really all about the new little one, your relationship together, and the love in your home. During your session we will use your furniture, your belongings, and the natural light found in your home to capture the sweet moments between your family and your baby. Lifestyle sessions include individual images of your new baby AND parent/sibling images.
Studio newborn sessions take place in my home studio, 8-10 days after delivery. My studio is stocked with all of the props, back drops and posing tools that we need. The space has great light and is small so that it can be kept nice and warm to keep your baby comfortable during their session. Studio sessions include individual images of your new baby AND parent/sibling images.
The balance is due in full on or before your session date. You can pay via cash or check mailed to my home address. You can also pay directly from this website. It is fast and secure. Click on the link below to go to my payment page:
TURN AROUND TIME
Within 3 weeks of each session, you will receive the link to your very own gallery. You will be able to download all of the images straight to your computer. Friends & family can view & purchase prints. ( If you'd like, I can post a few sneak peeks on Facebook)
WHAT DO I WEAR?
FOR YOUR MATERNITY SESSION: You’ll want your tummy to take center stage! Maxi dresses are great for this, as are t-shirts that hug your tummy, over jeans or leggings. Layers look great, and bring a pair of fabulous shoes or a great statement necklace for a pop of color and texture. I notice many of my clients hang images from their maternity session in their baby's nursery. If this is the case with you, you may wish to dress in colors that will compliment the colors you've chosen in that room. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing!
FOR YOUR NEWBORN SESSION: I suggest your wear something simple-jeans and a solid shirt. Nothing frilly or with pattern. This way your new bundle of joy is the center of attention in the photos. I love the way plain white or off white clothes look in images. Another idea is to wear Pink or Blue, according to your little one's gender.

BE COMFORTABLE. If you are comfy in your clothes, it'll show on your face and in the photos.
All sales are final. Due to the nature of digital photography and the fact that photographs, once sent, cannot be returned; Ginny O. Photography has a strict no refunds policy.
I am primarily a natural light photographer, which means my images have a natural look to them. Editing is used to finish off the images, not manipulate or change them. I offer basic editing which includes adjustments such as enhanced colors, contrast, white balance, sharpen, noise reduction, cropping, and light blemish removal.
