The way they run their fingers through your hair, the belly laughs when Dad's wrestling them on the floor, the spread-eagle jumps off of the couch. The snuggles, giggles, and craziness only lasts for so long. Document these moments before they're gone and cherish them forever.
They grow up so fast.. capture precious memories while they're still little.

Once I have your deposit and contract, I'll send you my location and session guides. We can choose the perfect spot for your family portrait session, and everyone can feel prepared, look great, and have fun!
The day of your photo session is all about your family and the love that you share. I will handle everything so you don’t need to stress. We’ll play, laugh, and before you know it you’ll be done!
I will send you a 'soft proof' of your gallery where you can choose your favorite photos for me to edit. I will post a sneak peek from your session within one week on social media so you can get excited for your gallery.
Your full gallery of family photos will be delivered within two weeks after I receive your favorites. From there you can purchase professional quality prints and share your photos!
If you're asking if you should pull out the vacuum and wash the sheets, the answer is no! There's no need to add any extra stress before the session. What I would ask is that you 'declutter' the areas we're going to be photographing. That could mean putting toys, waterbottles, pumps, etc. on the floor in the corner where it can be easily picked up and put back when we're done :)
If you prefer not to use your home for your newborn or family lifestyle session, I would be happy to rent a photography studio with a 'homey' feel or you can ask a family member to use their home. If we go to a studio I will need to add the cost of the studio rental to your invoice.
Posed newborn photos are of the baby perfectly wrapped and posed with different backdrops. Lifestyle newborn photos include the whole family and focus more on candid, storytelling pictures. (See examples from my photos above). While I do get nice photos of just the newborn during your session, I don't offer posed newborns because I believe lifestyle photos are more realistic and meaningful.
I would suggest booking your session during your second trimester. Lifestyle newborns can take place anywhere from 1-4 weeks after the baby is born so we will book your date within that timeframe.
Yes! If you would like to have maternity photos before your newborn session I offer $100 off the session fee for the newborn pictures.
