It is recommended that you book within your second trimester. In order to be sure to get on my  calendar before it is full, you’ll want to be sure to book ample time in advance. This also ensures that if you choose to have a Maternity Session as well, there will be enough time to do so.

Within 20 days after birth. When a Newborn Portrait Session is booked (ideally in the 2nd trimester), the due date is penciled into my  calendar. Once baby arrives, parents must reach out  to make the session appointment.

Due to the nature of the session and the needs of a newborn baby, Newborn Portrait Sessions can take anywhere from 1.5- 4 hours. This depends on the session that you have booked and  how the baby does . Baby is boss here at Emily Robin Photography.

Other than formula and bottles (if your baby is bottle fed), the studio is fully equipped with everything needed for sessions. However, if you have something of sentimental value that you’d like to incorporate into your session, I encourage you to bring it along to your session. I will always do my  best to include it in the portraits.

On-location outdoor portrait sessions take place within the first 90 minutes after the sun comes up or the last 90 minutes before the sun goes down. This ensures that I can utilize the most ideal lighting conditions for your portrait sessions.

All studio sessions take place during studio hours, which are Monday – Friday, 8am – 3pm. On-location sessions take place Monday – Friday, during ideal lighting timeframes (see above). Weekend sessions are offered only on a special needs basis. Additional fees may occur.

I currently serve Sheridan, Wy and surrounding areas, however, I am happy to accommodate clients from all over. Not from around here and have a special request? Reach out and we’ll see what we can do! Many of my  wonderful families come from all over the region, such as Casper, Gillette, Buffalo, and  Thermopolis, Wyoming, Hardin, Billings, and Lodge Grass, Montana, and even Colorado! Sheridan is a wonderful little town to visit and many are happy to make the trip. Plan on spending the night? Let me know and I’ll send you a guide of fun things to see and do in the area, as well as the best places to eat and stay. Emily Robin Photography studio is located on the Historic Main Street of Downtown Sheridan, which does not disappoint!

Absolutely! Travel up to 35 miles from Sheridan is included in the Storytelling Family Sessions. However, I know that sometimes we have special places that we’d like to have in our portraits. I am happy to accommodate that or come to you, wherever you may be. I love to travel and am honored when families from all over the country invite me to come visit! Travel fees apply. Reach out to chat more about your vision.

For all portrait sessions, a non-refundable session deposit/retainer is required to book and hold the date for your session. This will also serve as a cancellation fee in the event that you cancel your session. However, the deposit may be credited towards a future session, upon the photographer’s approval. All remaining balances are due 24 hours prior to the time of the session. Emily Robin Photography accepts cash, check, and credit cards. All invoices are sent via email and can be paid with an online payment method. If cash or check is preferred, contact Emily to make arrangements.


As a photography service provider, I understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances may require you to cancel or reschedule your portrait session. My cancellation and rescheduling policy is as follows:

In the event of a cancellation, the non-refundable session deposit/retainer will be forfeited by the client and used as a cancellation fee.
As previously stated, the deposit/retainer can be credited towards a future session if the client reschedules the appointment no later than 24-48 hours prior to the date of session and re-booking at an agreeable date and time. Any cancellations made past the 24-48 hour timeframe will not be subject to deposit transfer towards another session and the deposit will become the cancellation fee.

There is a one time rescheduling opportunity provided, given the session be rescheduled in a timely manner (within 1-2 weeks), within my availability. A second reschedule will be considered a cancellation and all cancellation policies will apply
