Children

Growing up with younger siblings and cousin, I know how meaningful portraits of the kids can be to family, these are the people that mean so much to you! The images will mean a lot now, and will mean a lot more to you even later on. I also know from having younger siblings and cousins that as hard as you try, things don't always go as planned. My style of shooting tends to be very relaxed and fun. I want the kids to play, interact be goofy! It's those moments I love to capture, those smiles, expressions those are the perfect moments. I don't want anyone to feel as though you need to watch the clock and have anything to worry about. Bring some favorite toys, maybe some snacks and I promise we will have so much fun!

I can provide location suggestions, but if you feel as though the backyard is the most comfortable place, then I would be more than happy to just come to you! I typically suggest that sessions are held in the morning or evening, but I am aware that there are nap times and bed times and it just doesn't always work and I will most definitely work with you to choose a time that works best for you!

Newborns

There is nothing like those first few weeks when your baby is so tiny, so perfect, so miraculous, and you are head over heels in love!  

My style is very natural, very limited posing and props. I want newborns to look like newborns. I want to document their little fingers and toes and even stick mom and dad in the photos as well. I may bring a few blankets or wraps but I try to use blankets and wraps that you already have, maybe something that means something to you. The majority of the session will consist of relaxing shots around the home. Locations I may possibly use, with agreement, would be the baby's room, the parents room, the family room, etc. I'll take individual photos of the baby in various locations as well as including family shots and shots of natural interactions such as cuddling and rocking.

Newborn sessions are one hour only, in the home, with a few outfit changes, about 15-20 digital images, in an online, shareable, gallery that is available for you to download, with a print release included for $150. Please don't think that an hour is too long or too short, if anything it will end up lasting longer than an hour which is perfectly ok! 

All sessions require a 50% non-refundable retainer fee when booked.

When should you schedule your newborn session? It is best to take the photos within the first 10 days, so as soon as you know you due date, I can get you on my calendar and we can adjust if necessary! 

Maternity sessions are also available, please contact me for information.
