Frequently Asked Questions


Newborn FAQ

I have a seperate FAQ for Newborn Photography - Click here

When should I book my One Year Cake Smash Session?

Ideally, cake smash sessions should be scheduled at least a month in advance. The entire scene is designed around your babies outfit. I often need to order supplies and have time to shop for the set up.

Do you provide the outfits for your cake smashes or little one sessions?

I only provide custom clothing for newborns. I work with some of the top designers all over the world and can make recommendations for your baby. Each outfit would be custom made and can be designed to match whatever you envision.

When should I book my Maternity Session?

Maternity sessions are booked at least two months in advance. Sessions are ideally scheduled while you are 30-36 weeks pregnant. This allows for a nice rounded bump. It is also a good idea to schedule early just in case of early arrival.

What should I bring to my maternity session?

I can make recommendations for maternity wear that is specifically designed for photography sessions. You can also choose something more casual as well. I encourage you to embrace this time and feel comfortable in your own skin.

What type of mini sessions do you offer?

I offer all types of mini sessions. They will include but not limkited to Christmas/Holiday mini session, Easter/Spring mini sessions, as well as Valentines Day for your little loves. I also enjoy offering Mommy or Daddy and Me, Communion (etc) just to name a few.

How do I find out when these mini sessions are available?

The best way to keep up to date is to like and follow my Jill Ryder Photography Page on Facebook. You can also follow me on Instagram.

Do you run any special offers?

Yes, I have a different half yearly special in July and a Black Friday special early November each year.
