Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


What if there is bad weather or it is raining?
In case of photographer illness or emergency  -OR- In case of inclement weather, there will be a single make-up day set for August.  If you are unable to attend a make-up day –OR- there is rain again on the make-up day, then the amount paid towards the retainer will be available to use as a credit towards a local Tomball Session or Print Credit towards a past order.  No refunds will be given.

Where is the location
As of right now, the location is on the beach in Galveston along the seawall with the Pleasure Pier as a backdrop.  Because of Galveston construction on the beach, an alternative location may be of use and exact address will be available a week before the session. 

What if we have a family emergency or illness and need to reschedule?

In the case of client illness or client family emergency, please notify photographer as soon as possible.  Beach sessions are very limited in availability and rescheduling a beach location session may not be possible, but we can schedule for a local Tomball session for a later date. If needed.  Even though the Retainer is Non-refundable, the paid retainer can be applied towards a local session.

Reese is turning ONE! The first birthday session and cake smash by Debby Ditta Photography of Tomball/ Houston TX


Reese is a member of the Baby Bee One Year in Photography Plan.  I've been blessed to see her every four months of her first year.  From the newborn, infant, and sitter baby, to the one year birthday girl session.  She is such a precious darling angel and I look forward to seeing her each session.  

For her one year session celebration, her theme for the party is pink lemonade.  Her Mommy and Grandmother made her lemmony cake for her.  Think that lemons would be too sour for her?  Well... she loved the lemons, they were just her thing!










For the one year session I encourage parents to get in on the session.  We photographed Reese with her Mommy and Daddy.























One year happens so fast when you are a baby.  Only 365 days in between the above images of baby Reese as a newborn baby and Reese as a one year old baby.  She is in the same cream bowl for each image.  She went from a 4 pound baby to an independent sitter.

Jeffrey's Newborn Session by Newborn Specialty Boutique Photographer Debby Ditta of Tomball / Houston Texas


Jeffrey is the first born baby to his parents and they are so blessed to have a calm and easy going baby boy.  He was a 9 pound handsome chunky baby at his newborn session.  I will be seeing him again very soon at the 4 month session because he is enrolled in the one year plan called the Baby Bee Package.  He will be photographed again at 4 months, 8 months sitter session, and the one year milestone / cake smash session. 

We styled his session to be natural, organic, and rustic.  The colors chosen were neutral browns, white, blues and grays to complement his nursery and house decor.  We posed him in the wooden bowl with burlap, the vintage fishing minnow bucket and then some posed and natural posing on the beanbag.  I begin every session with the parent (and siblings if applicable) poses so that the parents can relax and enjoy the remainder of the newborn session.  We then photograph baby in the prop poses and finally the beanbag posing for those sweet sleepy baby poses.  Parents are present the entire time I am working with baby to be involved in the newborn photography experience.  




Below is an example of natural baby posing.  He is actually posed here (I turned him towards the light and posed his legs for modesty) ... but his hands are left in the newborn fists... which is a sweet little trait found in newborn babies.  It is timeless because of the cream colored backdrop and minimal props.





Sometimes during parent posing, Dad just cannot help but kiss Mamma.  They are a new family with baby here.

Brynn's Newborn Session by Newborn Specialty Boutique Photographer Debby Ditta of Tomball / Houston Texas


Hard to imagine this little peanutty baby girl was just inside her Mother's womb only two weeks ago.  She is so pretty just like her Mamma.  At the time of her session baby Brynn was 14 days old and so quiet and sleepy.  She didn't make a peep till the end of the session because it was her lunchtime.  Babies change so much during their first month of life, that it is recommended to photograph newborn babies when they are less than a month old... preferred between days 5 to 17 days old.

For Brynn's session we designed the session to be natural, boho, organic and rustic.  Her parents love the outdoors so we incorporated some natural floral and mossy headbands, and a vintage fishing minnow bucket.  Her mother requested the lace / crochet style newborn romper (my favorite too) and it fit little Brynn like a custom fit.



 Her Mother made such a beautiful pregnant woman.  Her pregnancy is a memory now that little Brynn is here.  She will always have the memory as professional photographs to look back on.  Baby Brynn will one day look through the photographs of her Mother carrying her.   I have a package for combining the Maternity and Newborn Session bundle called the "Bump and Baby" Package.  It is a popular option for expectant Mommies.









Brynn's parents are outdoorsy and fish together.  She is tucked in so cozy inside the vintage minnow bucket pail that is a versatile prop for both boys and girls.  Girls like to fish too after all.  Something so sweet about this image is that her Daddy chose the headband Brynn is wearing in this image.
