I offer Maternity, Newborn, Children, and Family sessions. (Newborn and Children are my favorites, though!) My sessions all include consultations, so that we can plan out your session to perfectly suit you and your family, as well as an in-person gallery viewing session, so that I can answer any and all of your questions and help you decide how you want to keep and share your memories. They all also include social-media sized digital images for you to share with friends and family easily.
Ideally, Maternity sessions are scheduled between 34-37 weeks gestation. If you have a nursery color scheme or theme, I love to try to incorporate that into your maternity session to be a part of your and your baby’s story.
Newborn sessions are best before baby is 14 days old, so that they are nice and sleepy and still super flexible to get those beautiful curled up poses. Newborn sessions will typically last 2-4 hours, as we take lots of time to make sure baby is cozy and safe – and well-fed! Sessions in my in-home studio will be in the afternoons, when my studio is best lit and warmest.
Again, I love to include things that tie into your baby’s nursery or things that are important to your family. Please contact me to book your baby’s newborn session before your baby’s birth – preferably at the beginning of your third trimester. That allows me to have plenty of time to prepare for your session and make sure I can get you in my schedule!
For family and children sessions, I prefer to take a more lifestyle approach; this is one of the reasons I do pre-session consultations. I want to capture your family’s relationships and your personalities. I like to include things that are important to your children and your family, such as an activity you enjoy doing together or favorite stuffed animal. These photographs will be a reflection of this time in your lives.
