Consultation- PLANNING FOR YOUR UNIQUE SESSION
Your session is a special moment in your family's life, and it's important that it reflects your style and preferences. Let's get to know each other and make a plan that's tailored to you. The process starts with a personalized questionnaire located in your client portal. Each session is customized based on every client.
The Session- CAPTURING TIMELESS ART
I want your session to be a fun and memorable experience. You can sit back and relax while I take care of everything else. I have a wide range of colorful wraps, cute outfits, and adorable accessories to make your baby look like the cutest little baby model. With my experience and patience, you can trust that your baby is in good hands. I have tons of experience and patience that is needed for a successful session. You'll leave feeling confident and excited for the outcome. I also have a large client closet full of maternity gowns for you to choose from. Makeup is done at the studio and there is no need to stress about syncing up several schedules for your session.
Gallery Reveal- REVEALING YOUR BEAUTIFUL IMAGES
After your session, you have the option of seeing your beautiful images through a private gallery by yourself or with me during a virtual reveal. There’s no need to come back to the studio unless if you prefer to. You'll get to see a slideshow of all the gorgeous pictures we took, and I'll guide you through the selection process. I'm here to help you choose the perfect images for your home and show you different options for sizes and finishes. Ordering is easy, and everything is customized to your liking.
DELIVERY- ENJOYING YOUR ARTWORK
I believe that your artwork should be enjoyed right away, not stored away on your computer. I will do all of the work for you through my professional labs that only work with the pros! I will even deliver everything right to your home personally. If only digitals are chosen, they will be delivered through an online gallery for download.
Some kind words
"Loved getting my photos done by Taylor! She was excellent and I'd definitely get photos with her again. She made everything so much more comfortable as if I was in my own home. The photos were all so great!"
"Taylor is so accommodating and is great with kids. She takes the time to learn what you want. She also travels for photos. She took my daughter’s newborn photos at my house and met us at the church to take Christening photos."
"Taylor Pierce was amazing! She never made me feel rushed once during the session. She never made me feel annoying when I texted her my million of questions either! She was early and stayed later than she planned, she did everything I asked for and more! 10/10 recommend!!!"
"Taylor is amazing! For someone who isn’t very good at having her picture taken, she made is so much less awkward! She made us feel like she really cared about us, and the quality of our photos! I couldn’t recommend anybody better!"
"I don’t even know where to begin. I love how my pictures turned out, and can’t wait to use her again for our newborn photos! She talked me through ever pose and told me how to correct my posture and other tiny things to make sure she got the perfect shot and best photo of me. I have never had a photographer speak to me in the ways she did. I believe that shows true passion and knowledge."

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION?
The I always recommend booking your newborn photography session before your baby is born. During the second or third trimester is best to ensure availability and time to plan. Once your sweet bundle arrives, we will hard book a date.
UNTIL WHAT AGE CAN YOU DO A NEWBORN SHOOT?
The Newborn will curl up into those squishy poses for about the first 3 weeks. I like to book at 14 days old. Most babies are still used to being in the womb but their digestive system have had time to adjust at this week of age. We can still get pictures up to 8 weeks old. However, at that age, most of the sets will likely be wrapped and awake.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING FOR A NEWBORN SESSION?
No. Nothing is required! I provide all of the cute props and have everything we will need. If you have something continental, you would like included then you are welcome to bring it. I have had parents bring their heirloom baby blankets, wedding gowns and baskets.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A SESSION?
Before we start your newborn photography session, we want to make sure the baby is happy, sleepy, and comfortable. Therefore, I always recommend feeding baby right before you leave or when you arrive if you live over an hour away. Most of my clients do travel at least one hour to the studio from surrounding towns such as Nashville and Chattanooga. We may also stop in the middle of a session to allow you to feed your baby again if necessary. Sessions take approximately 2.5-4 hours. My top priority is keeping your baby safe, and comfortable the entire session.
WHAT IF MY BABY WON'T SLEEP OR CRIES ALOT?
Do not worry! I have the patience of a saint and have the nickname "baby whisperer". I will take the time your little one needs to settle for pictures. If the baby won't sleep, we will get gorgeous awake pictures instead! While you wait, you can help yourself to my snack drawer and refrigerated beverages.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
The I always recommend booking your maternity photography session around the beginning of your second trimester. Booking around that time for around 32 weeks will ensure availability and give us time to plan. However, I do have mothers book their session late in the third trimester if I have a last-minute spot open.
