Each session is unique to the number of images it produces, but on average a session can produce up to 50 images. Each image will be edited to ensure the finished product is one you will be proud to hang on your wall for many years to come. Turnaround time is 2 weeks!
I shoot all sessions on location! That can mean a beautiful outdoor setting, or the comfort of your own home. After you book your session, I will send you a list of locations that will work for the time of day you opt to schedule, and is a reasonable distance from your home. I have spent the past 6 years scouting the most beautiful fields and parks that lend well to my style of shooting.
In-home sessions can also be very meaningful, as it is your haven and where you feel most relaxed! I can find the prettiest pocket of light and create magic in what you may find mundane!
I do! Every spring I hold The Motherhood Event, which is a day for mothers to be in beautiful portraits with their children! I also offer Fall Family Mini sessions every October. Be sure you subscribe to my newsletter for updates!
Retainer fees are good for one reschedule at photographer's discretion only. If you or your child are sick we can absolutely reschedule, as well as if the weather is not ideal.
Retainer fees are non-refundable and due upon booking. Sessions do not go on my calendar until the fee is paid. Final payment is due at time of session. No images will be edited until final payment is received, and gallery will be posted within two weeks of receiving final payment if it is made after the session.
I have a lifestyle approach to all sessions, meaning I focus on capturing emotions and the relationship between you and your family. I believe in showcasing your love and joy for each other and your children, so I will have you snuggle, hug, tickle, pick flowers, etc. Asking you to share that love and playfulness allows me to capture the moments you'll want to remember years from now, while simultaneously helping you ease the stress and feel more natural in front of the camera!
Once you book your session we will discuss your overall vision, choose a location, and I will send you my Session Guide which breaks down how I run my sessions, as well as assisting you in what to wear. During your session I will encourage natural, meaningful interactions. After your session I will select the best images, hand edit each one, and deliver the high resolution finished images to you via an online gallery for download.
It is best to schedule your maternity session to take place between 30-35 weeks, depending on your comfort level and the size of your bump. Contact me early in your pregnancy to ensure your maternity session gets on my calendar!
Newborn sessions are best booked around 20 weeks, to ensure I am free to accommodate your session once your baby arrives. Your session will take place within the first 15 days of birth, and I ask that you let me know your baby is here within 3 days of delivery. It is always best to book before your baby is here!
What you wear can add to your portrait session so much! Once you book your session I will send you the Session Style Guide which will explain, in detail, how to piece together outfits for your session! I also have a custom Studio Wardrobe full of dresses for mothers and outfits for children ages 6m-5t for you to borrow, if desired!
