If there’s something missing, please feel free to reach out! The only way we’ll know if we’re the right fit to capture your family’s story is if we get to know each other!

Maternity sessions are best scheduled anytime between 28-34 weeks to be sure you’re feeling great and can show of your bump! But it’s okay if you’ve decided after 34 weeks that you want maternity portraits! As long as you’re not in labor it’s not too late!

Newborn Sessions are generally from right after birth up to 8 weeks to capture that sleepy snuggly stage and tiny little toes but because we are doing a lifestyle session that is baby led and focused on this new chapter for your family we are sure to create beautiful portraits for your family.

Your home is your home. It’s where you welcome baby into your family, where your memories will be made and how you’ll remember these early days- thats what makes it so sentimental.

If it’s lighting you’re worried about, I’m comfortable shooting in all lighting scenarios! We’ll find the right spot by a window for gorgeous natural light (augment if needed) and focus on those little details of this new family dynamic and the big love for your tiny humans. Your family and the love you have for each other are the focus of these images, not your home.

Of course it is! Confidence in front of the camera isn’t something that comes natural! Which is why we make sure you feel great before you ever arrive on location by working together to style your session so you’re thrilled with what everyone is wearing from your hair down to your toes! That outfit that makes you feel like a three year old in a superhero costume, that’s the winner!

On Location, we’ll be focused on movement and moments! So I’ll use prompts to help guide you into a moment that is also secretly a super flattering pose, I’ll move myself around and have you focused on your littles and your love. Your jobs is to have fun will your littles and because we’ve worked together in all the planning I know which kiddo is ready to lead the pack, which one needs extra help coming out of their shell and what song to break out to start a dance party full of lots of giggles.

Every session includes a style consultation and access to my client closet! My goal is to make the entire process from first contact to unboxing your prints as seamless and stress free as possible! We work together so you show up fresh and carefree ready to have fun and make memories!

All artwork and images are purchased separately AFTER seeing your final photos, so you can choose the ones you love and how you want to display them! You can choose digital files, albums and framed fine art prints- or any combination of those items! All physical products come with their accompanying digital file.

Don’t worry we keep that simple formula for selecting your photos and artwork just like we did for creating them! 

Your finished images will be delivered via a private online gallery 3 weeks after our session, you can choose your images and products via an easy to use storefront that allows you to preview your images on various finished pieces so you know exactly how they will look in your home! Everything in the store is ready to display in your home straight out of the box! 

Don’t worry if this sounds complicated or overwhelming, just like the planning process I am there every step of the way to make sure you love exactly what you get!
