Heather Anne Photography 


and frequently asked questions


There are a few studio

policies to be aware of:

There are no street shoes allowed in the studio. 

Snacks and drinks may be brought into the studio - try to keep them colorless and simple. Children must be supervised by parent if having a snack. 

Under no circumstances will sick children be allowed in the studio. This is for the safety of the teeny tiny babies I handle regularly - and for your own child's safety at their session.

If a child is not feeling well - please contact me to reschedule. 

What size clothing is available

in your studio?

I typically carry sizes Newborn - Girls/Boys 14


I also have a women's collection ranging from 

XS - 4X 

All girl headbands, hair clips and accessories

are available for use to any ages. 

What happens if my child 

doesn't cooperate?

This is a common fear - but do not worry! 

I have a ton of strategies I use to get kiddos involved 

and excited to take photos. Generally - I make it about "playing" vs. "sitting and smiling" (you get more authentic smiles that way anyways) 

In very rare occasions - I have had to have parents sit in the hallway. Sometimes toddlers behave better when mom and dad aren't watching. (little stinkers :P ) 

If baby is unconsolable - and there is no remedy to the situation, a reschedule may be necessary. Usually when this occurs there is an underlying illness or issue that comes to light in the next few days. 

Have no fear - I am always calm, and in most scenarios we are able to capture sweet and authentic images EVEN IF we have unwilling subjects. ;) 

How long does it take to receive 

the image gallery?

General turn-around time is 2-3 weeks. 

During my busiest season (fall) 

this could be closer to 4 weeks. 

Rush processing is available for an additional fee. 

How are images delivered?


Am I able to purchase MORE

images than are included in

my session fee?

Yes, of course! Usually there are at LEAST 15 additional images in your gallery than the amount you are able to download.


If you like, LOVE, and can't live without every single image in your gallery - you certainly can purchase more! 


Images are sold individually or in packs of 5, 10 and 15


The gallery buy-out price is $275 



How do I schedule my newborn 

session if I do not know exactly

when my baby will be born?

This is easy! When you book your session,

I put your due date on my calendar. This will save your newborn session for that time frame. 

Once baby is born, you will contact me within

the first few days of birth, and we will get an

actual session date and time set up. 

The ideal time for newborn photos is between 8

and 14 days old. So we will shoot for that!


How Long does a typical Session last?

Every session is unique - and depending on the type of session you have booked, the time frame varies. 

Here are some general session times: 

Newborn Mini: Up to 45 minutes

Newborn Essentials and Deluxe: Up to 3 hours

Milestone Sessions (6 Months and Up):  Up to 1 hour

Family Sessions: 40 Minutes - 1 Hour

Engagement  + Maternity Sessions - Up to 1 Hour

Senior Sessions: 1-2 Hours 

Where do sessions take place?

Most sessions take place in my studio at

731 East Main St  in Owatonna, MN

Outdoor session locations vary - but generally

are within 30 miles of Owatonna. 

Do you Offer Cake Smashes?

Due to COVID-19 and the new direction my studio style has gone, I no longer offer full-blown elaborate / decorated  / themed cake smashes. 


I do however, offer a simple Birthday smash for kiddos coming in for their one year milestone session! 


This is an add-on to a milestone session, and the fee is $25. 


It is recommended that you bring a hand towel and/or some sort of wet wipes to clean baby up afterwards! 


You will have the option of a simple mini naked cake, cupcake, donuts or muffin for your child's smash. 


All smashes are done up off the floor in a vintage highchair to ensure all sanitary practices and CDC guidelines are met.

How are you preventing the spread 

of COVID-19 in your studio?

The studio has in place a COVID-19 preparedness plan which includes continual and rigorous sanitation of all surfaces and fabrics, temperature screening upon arrival, and gloves and mask policies for both photographer and studio guests.
