Q&A with Diane Bartoo, Owner/Photographer

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

The birth of a baby will mark the most defining moment in a person's life. From that day forward,

everything changes and means everything. And in just weeks, your new little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms. They are only this little for a very short time. With a newborn portrait session at Diane Bartoo Photography, we help you preserve those memories forever.

What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?

We provide beautiful pregnancy clothing for mamas. These gowns are top-quality and made from chiffon and silk so that we can capture gorgeous flowing movement of the dress. Our newborn wraps are made from angora, merino wool, and cashmere. You will not need to purchase anything for mama or baby; all props, blankets, and head pieces are made from the finest materials and are available for your use.

What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?

Pregnancy and newborn photography are best done within a specific point of development. I like to photography pregnant mamas between 32 and 37 weeks so we have a beautifully round belly and mama is still feeling active. Newborn babies are best photographed before they are 10 days old. These are only guidelines for best-case scenarios, and we do photograph outside these guidelines.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

I am very comfortable working with mamas and newborns. With 20 years of photography experience and over five of those years working exclusively with mamas and newborns, I have perfected my craft in the pregnancy and newborn photography industry.
