I know how valuable your time is as a family.  I promise that your session will be filled with love and fun. I will not ask you to be anything other than who you are.  I cannot wait to turn your family’s love affair into art for you to treasure for a lifetime.

 

Family Sessions

Family portrait sessions take place on location or in your home.  They last between 60-90 minutes.

I know that preparing for a family session can be stressful- scheduling a date, choosing outfits for everyone, getting everyone excited to be there, whew- that wore me out writing it!  I’m here to help with all of that!

Here’s the thing- I know your most precious commodity is your time and I want you to have fun and enjoy this time as a family.  I want you to feel relaxed and know that you are in good hands.  I spent over twelve years as a social worker working with children and families.  I am also the mama to two looney toon toddlers. There isn’t anything that your child is going to do that is going to rattle me.  

I am here to highlight who you are as a family.  My portraits are a combination of intimate, posed, candid, and fun.  I’m not one to make a child smile unless that child is genuinely happy.  If your child is wrapped around you like a koala bear, then that’s where he will stay.  If your child wants to wander and play, I will follow and get portraits along the way.  I go with the flow of your family and often your children will lead the way.  Your session is about having fun and connecting with your loved ones.  All you need to do is show up- I take care of the rest.

After your session is complete, I choose the best images from your session to present you in your gallery.  Every image is hand edited in either color or black/white, based upon artistic choice.

2-3 weeks after your session, you will receive an email with your gallery.  You will be able to download your images straight from this gallery.  You also have the option to purchase prints, canvases, and albums from the gallery.  

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

A lifestyle newborn session takes place in your home and uses the nursery and rooms where your family spends time to capture the fresh new moments with your baby.  I will take a few posed photographs of your baby using the furniture and unique items in your home that define who you are as a family.  You have spent so much time preparing your home for this amazing blessing and I want to capture this sacred time for you and your family.  Our sessions tend to take between two and three hours.

Fresh 48 Sessions

Fresh 48 sessions are an opportunity to document your child in the hospital or birth center within the first hours or first days after your baby is born.

I know for me, I wanted to have someone document the moment my son met his baby sister; I wanted to be present and have those memories while not worrying about taking photos.

We coordinate the time of the session after you have given birth.

I know how intimate it is to have someone visit you at such a vulnerable and precious time.  I would love to get together to eat cake or drink tea to chat about pregnancy, babies, and life!
