ABOUT YOUR SESSION
My goal for every session is to capture the love and connection you share as a family. Whether it be a couple expecting their first sweet baby, a newborn's first smiles at mom and dad, or parents being tackled by their kids, I want your photos to remind you of your greatest blessing: each other.
Newborn sessions take place in your home and can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. I take a lifestyle approach that is more organic, focusing about half the session on baby with his or her new family, and the other half of baby alone, comfortably positioned on soft blankets. No props or posing, just natural, simple and timeless.
With regular portrait sessions I offer the option of a full or a mini session. Full sessions take place at the location of your choice and last about an hour. This is perfect for families who want a variety of options and time to capture the everyday beauty that makes your family special. Mini sessions are 25-30 min at a location I choose, and are perfect for a child's milestone moment or a quick update of family photos.
Every session includes digital files delivered through online download with printing rights.
Mini sessions start at $250, Full portrait sessions at $400 and Newborn sessions start at $500. For newborn clients I offer two Baby Plan options, both include an in-home newborn session and two mini sessions at baby's 6 and 12 month milestones. Baby plans can be paid in installments over baby's first year. Each session also includes a one-time discount on all prints, wall art and other heirloom products. While I love the convenience of digital format, the best way to cherish your photos is by printing and displaying them! I love working with clients to create one of a kind gifts and keepsakes your family will cherish. For more information, click on one of the links below to download a full PDF investment guide.
Frequently Asked Questions
When & How Do I Book?
For the time being, I am only accepting new newborn clients, and am offering family portrait sessions only for my current clients. I love the clients I have, and one of my professional goals is to serve as a lifetime photographer for the newborns & families I serve. If openings arise for new portrait clients I will post those on social media and through my newsletter!
Newborn sessions are generally booked by the end of the second trimester, but if you're late to the game contact me anyway and I may be able to fit you in! For portrait sessions, I suggest contacting me 1-2 months in advance to ensure availability. Portrait sessions are offered on limited weekdays and Sundays around sunrise and sunset. To reserve your session, I simply need a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer fee.
How Do I Schedule my Newborn Session? I don't know when baby is coming!
I accept a limited number of newborns each month to ensure that I can schedule them within their most sleepy, snuggly window (typically within the first two weeks). Parents contact me as soon as baby arrives to set and exact date for the session. Newborn sessions are scheduled for weekday mornings only; if baby has school-aged siblings or there are other conflicts I will come back to your home in the afternoon for family pictures.
When will I receive my images?
You will receive an email link to your online gallery and downloading instructions within 2-3 weeks of your session! Your gallery stays online for 30 days to share with friends and family, and give you a chance to decide on any prints or products you may choose.
Can I share my pictures on social media?
Definitely! I love it when clients share their images!! I only ask that images not be altered with filters and the like. I have been lucky enough to never advertise; instead, my awesome clients recommend me to their equally awesome friends. If you can tag/credit me when posting it is definitely appreciated! I also offer a referral print credit for newborn clients. :)
