What to Expect
I'm a natural light photographer. I like to think that my photography style is natural, organic, very relaxed and candid for the most part. As a mom of three little ones, I know how stressful it can be to get everyone looking at the camera and smiling at the same time. I tell my clients not to fight it, be natural, in the moment and that will ultimately create the most special images. My goal is to capture the true personality of whatever subject or subjects I am photographing and the genuine interaction and bond between them.
Newborn sessions are a very special occasion, a time to admire and preserve those first smiles, snuggles and kisses you’ll want to remember always. This will be the best investment of your life and I know that a few years from now you will think it was one of the best decisions you've ever made. Sessions take place at my home studio unless the client has any other preference. Newborn sessions must be done during the first 4-11 days of life, this allows me to manipulate and pose baby in those beautiful squishy poses that they so loved while in the womb. It is best to book your newborn session while you are still expecting. Sessions can last anywhere between 2-4 hours. Every baby's sleeping habits and temperaments are different and they are the ones in charge of this session. Parent and sibling photos are highly suggested and make for a beautifully rounded newborn album. While siblings are more than welcome to join us for photos, I like to tell parents to make arrangements to have the siblings picked up after we’ve photographed them with the baby.
Maternity sessions are are just as irreplaceable as any other session.Imagine being able to relive the magic of your pregnancy whenever you desire. Imagine capturing the joy of maternity, for eternity. It's a beautiful beginning that deserves to be captured and cherished, forever. Maternity sessions are usually done between 25- 34 weeks. These sessions take place either in the studio or at an outdoor location of your choice. When booking a maternity session, you will have my full range of maternity gowns, drapes, and fabrics to choose from for your session, or if you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own clothing.
Family and Portrait sessions are held in the studio or outdoors in the evenings. Since every child and family is unique, I would be happy to help you choose a location that suits your family’s personality. Outdoor sessions take place approximately 90 minutes prior to sunset to get that beautiful golden light. I always encourage parents to ensure their child has a full tummy and is as well rested as possible. While there is some basic posing involved, I love capturing children playing and families as they are. In my opinion these are the moments that make the best images!
In-Home Lifestyle sessions are available for all of the above categories. An at home life style session is set in the intimate setting of your home and captures the not so posed moments that happen while at home. These kinds of sessions are truly some of my favorite and many of my clients love it because we are not rushed for time, weather is not an issue and because the session simply takes place in the comfort of their home.
