If you have any further questions feel free to email me. I would be happy to answer!


What type of photo sessions do you do?

I photograph newborns, babies, children of all ages and families. I do not photograph weddings, engagements or events.

Where are you based and do you travel?

My photo studio is located at 28 Lafayette st in Silver Creek. I do most of my photo sessions in-studio with the exception of outdoor family sessions. I do these sessions at either Knox Farm State Park or Tifft Nature Preserve.

How do I contact you?

The best way to contact me is via email, juliesteklasaphotography@gmail.com or through my contact page. I'm also on Instagram under JulieSteklasa and fb as Julie Steklasa Photography.

How many pictures will I receive?

If you book a Mini Photo Session (I offer mini session options for holidays, newborn and first birthday sessions) then you get to choose 10 images from the final gallery. Typically the final gallery contains around 30 images to choose from. If we do a regular Newborn, Child, First Birthday or Family Session you get all images from the gallery, usually 50-60 of them.

How long do photo sessions last?

A Newborn Photo Session typically lasts 2-3 hours. A First Birthday Photo Session usually lasts 30-60 minutes. Other types of photo sessions vary, depending on the age of the child(ren).

How far out should I book?

It's never too early to book! Usually I book Newborn Photo Sessions when mom is in her second or third trimester. I like to schedule First Birthday Cake Smash Photo Sessions at least 1-2 months before babys birthday, with a session date set 3-4 weeks before their birthday so that you have time to make prints if you want them for their birthday party.

Do you provide outfits or props?

I provide everything we'll need for a Newborn Photo Session. I have hundreds and hundreds of items to use, including wraps, blankets, hats, headbands, buckets, crates and many more items. If you have an item you want to bring with you for your Newborn Session I just ask you send me a photo of it so I can plan accordingly.

For First Birthday Cake Smash sessions I do provide the cake, balloons, banners and other decor. If you request a set that I don't have items for I may ask you to bring in an item or two.

I have over 200 backdrops so you'll have a bunch of options! You get to pick out and choose the backdrops you want to use before you come in.

I do have some outfits for babies 6-18 months old. If you'd like to see what I have and possibly use any you can email me and I'll send you the link to view.

What are your prices?

You can view all of my pricing and whats included in each session type on the Investment page of this site.
