Q & A

Q: Who will be the photographer on the day of our photo shoot, Megan or Katy?

A: Both! Megan and Katy generally take turns leading your shoot, however, both ladies are continually shooting. Don’t worry, it’s not confusing at all once things get going. They’ve found that two creative minds really are better than one in so many cases and that appointments flow even more smoothly and naturally with both of them working together.

Q: Where will our photo shoot take place?

A: The ladies of Nine Photography & Design are on location photographers. They would love to travel to your home or any location that is special to you. If you’re not sure where you’d like to have your photo shoot, please contact Nine! They have plenty of location ideas to bounce off of you.

Q: Do you only do photo shoots in Des Moines?

A: Nine Photography & Design will go where you need them to go! If your desired location is more than a 30 minute drive from Des Moines the girls will discuss traveling fees when setting up your appointment.

Q: What kind of photography do you do?

A: Nine Photography & Design will do it all and they love the variety. Weddings, boudoir, newborns, seniors, headshots, they have experience in just about every avenue of photography. If you have questions about a specific type of shoot, don’t hesitate to ask.

Q: Is there an ideal time to have maternity or newborn portraits taken?

A: The girls generally suggest that maternity clients schedule their appointment near the beginning to middle of the third trimester. Newborns are best shot within the first two weeks of birth, while they maintain that sleepy cuddly state that parents love to have captured.

Q: How do we get our pictures after the photo shoot?

A: Katy and Megan each edit their shots independently and then combine their finished work for you. You will receive 4x6 quality images as digital download once your photos are complete.
