what kind of photographer are you?
I am a lifestyle photographer. Why lifestyle? Because lifestyle photos are the photos that stop my scroll on Instagram. The photos that take my breath away. I always strive to see the best in people, so my goal at every session is to capture the unique beauty of you, your family, or your newborn in my photographs…and to capture the moments in between. Moments cannot be replicated and I want to capture as many of them as I can. I will gather a collection of photos that will showcase you, as you are, in this season of life. A collection of photos that will stand the test of time.
where will my session be held?
Family, Maternity and Senior sessions are natural light, on-location sessions. Together we’ll choose the perfect location for your session. Newborn sessions are held in my small at-home studio or in your home. Fresh48 sessions are held in your hospital room.
when do newborn/fresh48 sessions occur?
I like to do newborn sessions within the first two weeks of baby being born and fresh48 sessions within the first 48 hours of baby being born.
what should I wear?
Be comfortable. Be yourself. But more details will be sent to you about this when you book a session with me.
what is included in my session?
For family, newborn and senior sessions…I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection that includes all high resolution digital images that I edit from your session, in both color and black & white (minimum of 50 images), and a private online gallery where you can easily download, share and print all of your images. You can also purchase additional prints and canvases directly from your gallery. You will also receive a complimentary luxury album from your session that I design.
For milestone sessions…your collection will include all high resolution digital images that I edit from your session, both color and black & white (minimum of 30 images), and a private online gallery where you can easily download, share and print all of your images. You can also purchase additional prints and canvases directly from your gallery.
how far out are you booked?
I typically book one to three months in advance. If you are interested in a newborn or fresh48 session, please inquire while you are pregnant. Already delivered…no problem! I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute requests.
