How It Works

Once you decide you are ready to book a session with Ivybella, we will pick a date and decide on a location. I will pick the time that works best for lighting and ask that you trust in me! Sometimes it's hard to keep littles up past bedtime when the sun sets so late on a weeknight, but I promise it will be worth it!! I will send you a link via email to your client portal which will have your contract, questionnaires, and invoice.  A non-refundable deposit of $50.00 will be due at the time of booking to secure your spot. This will go towards your final cost. The remainder of the session fee is due on or before the day of your session.

If you have booked a newborn session, I will put your due date on my calendar and have you message me as soon as your baby arrives. Then we pick a date together and I will send you my prep guide and questionnaire to help us both prepare for the session.

I will send a you a message a few days ahead of time and the day of to make sure our session is still on and to try to get you excited for it! Next is the fun part- take lots of pictures! My favorite part! I believe that raw, unpromted, candid photos are the BEST. I want to capture you and your family as you are. I of course make sure to do a few nicely posed, smiling and looking at the camera ones as well! But, overall your session with Ivybella Photography will be relaxed, fun, and all about YOU! 

I will then go through and edit all your photos. Once this is all done (About threeto four weeks) I will send you a link for your online viewing gallery, with print release. I highly suggest only printing through my website (this is NOT required) or Trust me, I've printed through every place possible and you don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for your session and have your prints be orange or greenish tinted if you print through someplace other than the places I listed. You CAN print through other places but I strongly advise against it.

Now down to the nitty gritty!

What is all included in your session fees? 

The time and talent of Ivybella Photography, along with the peace of mind of knowing that we are insured, pay taxes, and have lots of education, training, and lots of practice to do this job. But back to the good stuff: You receive 30+ hand edited color and 30+ black and white digital files with print release. (recommended printing is through  As listed above, you have the option to print high quality professional photographs and canvases directly through your gallery link, but this is not a requirement. The links only last 2 weeks, so make sure to download these in time or you will incur an additional fee to reactive your gallery.
