Newborn Photography Session

Newborn photography sessions typically take place at home, since this is where you're most comfortable. My sessions are relaxed and real. Don't clean up and don't worry about the outfits. I love helping with it so much.  Just bond with your baby and family and let me create scenes and moods. I will come with many ideas, plans and guidance.

FAQs

How long does the session last?

The duration of the session is 2 hours. The longer we shoot the more depth, personalization and creativity. 

Do I have to breastfeed in the photos?

You do not have to breastfeed in front of the camera. Many mothers want breastfeeding photos, but this is not required and is completely up to you. I respect your preferences, and love to communicate openly during our session.

What if the baby is fussy, needs to eat or have diaper changes?

As a mama of 2 babies myself, I can assure you that I understand babies need soothing, feeding and care. This is not a disruption during the photo session, but rather, a natural part of it. You can take all the time you need to care for your baby and yourself during our session. It becomes part of the art.

How long until I get my photos?

I typically give a sneak peek within two or three days, and your full gallery is delivered within 1 week. 

Do you offer Newborn and Maternity Package?

I do. I offer a package that includes two full sessions, and for a limited time, I'm also willing to offer a mini-maternity for any client who purchases a newborn session.

Family Home Story

Home is where the heart is. The essence of our family, and where I love to create authentic family portraits. Sessions are a mix of documentary (chaos, cuddles, and action that naturally unfolds) and fine-art (thoughtfully crated portraits that draw out emotion and storytelling). Your home story will cover it all.

 

I come to you with a passion for authenticity. With ideas for a creative and memorable session. And an eye for the small details that matter. 

 

You can expect the flow of the session to feel natural, low-pressure and fun. Think laughter, comfort, and boldness. The space where you can be unapologetically you.

FAQs

 

Do we need to clean or prep?

No, I think the everyday details of your life at home are inspiring! Please don't stress about a mess.  Growing up with 4 siblings myself I learned to embrace the chaos.

Should we plan matching outfits?

Not for me. Yo can if you feel for it. I have so many clients with so many different tastes. I am happy to hop on the phone with you to help you with this. We can figure out togehter what feel we want to create in this shoot. Do we want it summery or moody with many clothes,layered...Hippie bohemian or more futuristic and so on.  You see there is a lot I can help you with and there is also a lot to consider and that's all part of my preparing for a session.

Could you help me with what to wear?

Absolutely! I love fashion and dressing my clients. I sometimes bring articles of clothing to incorporate into a portrait. Or, we can look at your closet together to plan something memorable.

How long until I get my photos?

I typically give a sneak peek within a day or two, and your full gallery is delivered within 1 week. 

Maternity Session | 2 hours or 60-80 min

Maternity sessions take place at home ( 2 hour session ) or an outdoor setting (60-80min or 2 hours - the longer the session the more creative we can be and create beautiful scenes, play around with clothes), and we'll celebrate that beautiful new life inside of you. 

Don't worry, I hold space for you to feel confident, comfortable and brave. I'll dress you! :) I love creating unique outfits with your clothing, or mine, to show off your bump while still framing the rest of your body.

In addition to celebrating your form, we'll also celebrate your connection to your family. Partners, kids, those people who are just as excited about this huge life transition... we'll capture the connection between all of you to celebrate where you've been, and where you're headed.

FAQs

 

Do I have to get naked?

No, definitely not a requirement. There are lots of ways to celebrate the form and I am a master at finding ways, either clothed, partially clothed, or completely nude, to showcase that beautiful bump. I respect your comfort, and we can communicate openly about it during your session.

Family Photography Session | Outdoor

If you prefer an outdoor session, we will collaborate to find a spot that has character and meaning. A place that is friendly for the kids, enjoyable and memorable for you.

I love places that have variety; maybe some direct sun and shade. Or perhaps some buildings we can explore. Scenes that ignite the imagination are especially fun and inspiring... 

Outdoor sessions are adventurous, and involve the senses. These are a good fit if you're not afraid to put your bare feet in the water, or snuggle with your babies in a daisy-filled patch of grass.

FAQs

 

Should we match?

No, the most important part for outdoor sessions is that you're dressed or an adventure. Let the kids get dirty! Bring a few cool pieces of clothing that we can play around with, try out for shots, etc. I may also bring something we can incorporate into your session.

What will we do during the session?

You and your family will get to play, explore, and chill. I provide guidance for what spots might provide the best composition or lighting, but we always go with the flow - especially if you have toddlers or little kids with their own ideas.

Tips in general?

Let your kids play, get dirty, be goofy. Don't try to make them act a certain way to get the shot. I will playfully incorporate them when the time is right, and I'll guide them as needed. 

How long until I get my photos?

I typically give a sneak peek within two or three days , and your full gallery is delivered within 1 week.
