"Jen has photographed our family many times over the last few years. Our pictures have become treasured keepsakes and our home is filled with moments she captured for us. Not only is Jen an expert in her craft, she's also one of the kindest people you will ever meet.

"This is the best place to get newborn, birthday, and family pictures done in Lancaster county and possibly in all of PA!!! Jen and Tammy take extra special time with newborns to get the perfect photo to last a lifetime! One year Birthday photos with a cake smash and a tubby splash are extremely fun and exciting for your baby and gives so many memories! Don’t miss out on the best photographer!

"I have used MariposaPix starting in 2011 with all of our newborns. With each session we looked forward to seeing our sneak peaks within 24 hours. Jen has a ton of patience working with newborns. Jen and her assistant Tammy make sure the baby is comfortable and posed in the perfect positions to make sure each picture is just right. We get to relax too! Don’t forget to add the sibling and parents because they don't stay this little for long.

We love to capture milestone sessions from the time your baby sits, drools to when they stand and walk. The best times to capture your growing baby is 6-7 months and just before their one year birthday. Many parents want to share their images on their birthday so book ahead. The best time to capture families is the summer through fall. We have limited availability so we can offer our best to our clients. We do not have time frames so we spend the amount of time it takes to capture candids and posed images. Our hope is to provide you with a variety of images to preserve for a lifetime. Contact us to start the conversation.

When is the best time to book a Newborn Session?
A.We suggest booking after your 20 week ultrasound but at least 10 weeks from your due date. We open up 5 newborn slots per month and they fill up quickly. In order to provide the best care for our clients, we keep our schedule open. Babies arrive when they are ready so once they come, we will book your exact session date within 7-14 days of birth. Don't miss your chance by waiting.
How do I prepare for my Newborn Session?
A.We will provide you with a digital newborn catalog and our online style guide with all the itty bitty details of preparation. We will answer any questions you have as we stylize your session. Our pre-booked clients: Remember to contact us within 24 hours of birth to schedule your exact session date.
Do you provide the props or do we need to bring things?
A.We stylize every newborn session with our studio filled with props, backdrops, bonnets and headbands. If you would like to include an heirloom prop, please let us know in advance. For child and family sessions, you bring our outfit/s and we provide everything else. For cake smash sessions, you provide the cake and balloons and we provide everything else.
I need help picking outfits! Do you do that?
A.For child and family sessions, we offer any online guidance you need. We suggest scoping Pinterest, looking at our Facebook page, and finding high quality outfits. Please try on and wash/iron your outfits prior to your session. You are welcome to bring multiple outfits and we can choose when you arrive. Try not to include bulky outfits that make your child uncomfortable. We do have a variety of 6-12 month vintage wear and 1yr-5yr old dresses that you may use. We have headbands and chunky necklaces that you can use for your child too. Let's plan together!
When will I receive my proofing gallery to choose my images?
A.This can depend on the season we are in. Often times, we try to provide you with your online proofing gallery to choose the images that you wanted finely edited about 1-2 weeks after your session. Once you order your images, we will edit and provide your final gallery and send your prints to our lab within 2-3 weeks.
If my package comes with a certain amount of digital images, can I purchase more?
A.Absolutely! We provide you a proofing gallery of 40+ images. You will choose the ones that come in your package and can add additional digital images to your order at that time.
Can I order prints and canvas art from my gallery?
A.Yes, you can! When you receive your final gallery, you can order prints, foam mounted standouts, canvas, albums and memory keepsakes and they will be shipped directly to your home. We suggest you always order professional prints from your professional photographer. You've invested in high quality craftsmanship so finish your experience with the best. We are happy to help guide you in the ordering process.
Do I have to order prints through you?
A.You will get a print release for your session. While we highly recommend that you order prints through our professional lab, you are able to order prints as your discretion. We are not responsible for labs that do not color match your digital images.
When do you do outdoor sessions?
A.We photograph children/families outside from May through October only. We choose 5:30pm as our starting time for every outdoor session. That is when lighting is the very best in our meadow.
Can I use the images on social media?
A.The images on social media have our watermark to protect the image. These images are low resolution and if you were to print them, you would get a very poor looking picture. We are an honest family and we ask that you wait until you order your images and we provide you with your final downloadable gallery with high resolution images. Those are the very best ones for printing. They will not have a watermark once you download them.
Are sessions refundable?
A.Once you book and purchase your session, we begin the creative process. If it is a newborn session, I book my assistant and block my schedule. We stylize each session. Therefore, we do not refund any sessions. We use 50% of your payment for our creative purposes. You can use 50% of the payment towards a new session within 90 days. If you choose not to book a different session within 90 days, you will forfeit your 50%. Thank you for understanding.
Are payment plans available?
A.All package payments are due upon booking. There are payment plans available for Deluxe Newborn + Maternity Sessions only. We offer 2 payments: 50% is due at the time of pre-booking newborns. 50% is due 60 days prior to your due date. Upon booking, we begin the creative process, book assistants and begin to plan your session. Please contact us to set up a payment plans for newborns. We do not offer refunds on newborns unless something tragic happens. If a newborn is in the NICU--no worries--we will do the session when they come home.
