How far in advance should I book my session?
…If you want to guarantee your spot, book 2+ months in advance.  Some months are busier than others, so they book up faster.  I have a ton of clients that contact me as soon as they find out they are pregnant to book with me, and I LOVE that!  But, it doesn’t hurt to contact me to see if I have any openings if you are interested in my work, and need a session asap!

Where is your studio?
…My studio is at 805 Monroe Street, Conway, Arkansas.  I only shoot newborns and babies up to 1 year in the studio.  Once babies are sitting, we can do outdoor locations depending on the weather.

How do you pronounce “Reibe”?…Hah, I get this one a lot. What a name to marry into right? Actually, my maiden name got a lot of different pronunciations as well, so I’m quite used to it.
——->    reib-e /ˈrēbē/ pretty much like reebee 😉

I would like family and/or sibling photos with my newborn session, is that possible?…Yes, if you choose to do so, I will photograph just a few shots of your new family and do sibling shots for no extra charge with the full session.  These shots take about 20-30 minutes, as I just do a few, and then 95% of the session is baby only shots.

What should I wear to my photo session?…I want you to wear something you are comfortable in! For newborn sessions, I like the parents to just wear something neutral and solid.  A tank, fitted tee, or even a nice blouse is fine, just go for solids/neutrals!  Siblings – same idea!  After we do the family/sibling shots, everyone is free to go (except mama!), and whoever does stay, I suggest wearing something light or wear layers because it will be HOT in the studio!

How long are the sessions?…A newborn session can be anywhere from 1.5 hours to 3 hours, babies are best to pose when super sleepy and full, so we take feeding breaks as needed 🙂

How long after the session will I get to see my online gallery?…Your online proofing gallery will be delivered via email usually within 7 days.  Once you have chosen the images you want fully edited, that usually takes around 7-10 days!

How do you deliver your images…You will receive a digital download link for all sessions via an email.  Every image included in your session is a high resolution jpg image and will come with a print release so you can print wherever and whenever you’d like.  Prints/products are not included and sold separately.

What is a digital image?…A digital image is a jpeg/.jpg file.  Any digital images you buy or that are included with your session, will be delivered in jpg format, so you can have the images forever.  If you buy the digital image, the file will be full resolution, meaning you are not limited to the size you want to print.  Of course, if you want to go really big (16×20 and bigger), I always suggest you get with me so I can help prepare your file for a bigger print.
