EXPERIENCE

 

We start with a pre-session call consultation. This will give us a chance to get to know each other and discuss your needs and expectations for your photography session. My goal is to make you and your family feel as comfortable as possible during the session so I can capture who you really are. I want to be able to create images that are unique while you and your family relax and have fun! 

I recommend getting in contact two to four weeks in advance so we can schedule your portrait session. During our call consultation we will also discuss clothing, timing and location.

Below you’ll find information about all of the types of sessions I offer!

YOUR

BIRTH SESSION

Looking back, I wish I could have captured the moments my two children were born. I have photographed many births and all were a magical time filled with emotion, joy and love. For a mom to be able to see the labor process and a picture of when she first met her child is priceless. To me, the most rewarding moment is when I delivered photos to a mom and she relives moments she could not remember. So if you wish to have that documented, I would love to chat with you. I am also a doula!

YOUR NEWBORN SESSION

After photographing many couples on their wedding day, several have come back asking me to take newborn pictures. I have taken many newborn classes and have learned about a baby’s physiology and safety and even the right temperature for a newborn session. I love capturing those tiny toes and lips and all the other little details. I have a knack for getting babies to fall asleep so we can do adorable poses.

The perfect timing for a newborn session is 7-10 days, when babies are sleeping. For newborn sessions, you should schedule your session during the last month of your pregnancy so we can plan out accordingly. I also recommend having your newborn session between the first seven days to two weeks after birth. I would be honored to photograph the most precious thing in your life, your baby.

YOUR

MATERNITY SESSION

A pregnancy can sometimes be overwhelming and occasionally, women do not feel like taking pictures of themselves as their body changes. But there is so much magic and beauty that occurs during this time and gorgeous moments to be captured. Every woman’s pregnancy will uniquely shape their lives. Through my lens, I capture those special moments.

YOUr

CHILDREN’S SESSION

Your children change so much as they grow and I can help you remember every phase. I play with them to get them to laugh and am adept at making the session fun and stress-free for parents. Photographs are a wonderful way to record milestones as your babies grow into childhood.

YOUR FAMILY SESSION

A family photoshoot can be stressful. Kids get grumpy, but I suggest that parents take a walk and then I have them run around and have fun. More often than not, they listen to me! This helps me capture priceless images as well as real family moments filled with laughter, fun and happy times.

AFTER THE SESSION

We will make an appointment to sit down two weeks after our session, either at my studio or at your home or wherever is most convenient for you, to choose your favorites images and choose the products you desire. The delivery time of your images and products will be between two and four weeks after the appointment.
