Maternity sessions are about capturing a time in your life that only happens once. This baby will only be in there for a short period of time and capturing that moment is so important. I promise that some day you will look back at these images, as I do mine, and think "I don't remember looking like that" or "Wow, I can't believe my son/daughter was in there".
My maternity sessions include designer dresses to wear, as well as hair and makeup. I want you to feel pampered and beautiful on your special day! My "Client Closet" includes many designer maternity dresses for all shapes and sizes. I encourage my moms-to-be to come to the studio for a consult before their session to try on some of my dresses and discuss your vision.
Siblings and family are included in the session and may be done in the studio, outdoors, or both (depending on outdoor location).
Newborn sessions are where I started my photography journey and where my passion still lies today. Nothing is more special to me than capturing a new life and some of those first snuggles with a new Mom and Dad. Newborn sessions ideally should be booked during your pregnancy, but if your baby is already here, still feel free to contact me, and I will try to get you in.
The session typically occurs within the first 7-14 days of your child’s life, though I am very experienced with working with older newborns as well. Once booked, the only thing you need to do to prepare for a newborn session is to contact me once the baby arrives and then I will do the rest. I am fully equipped with all of the props you would ever need for your session, so you don't have to worry about buying a thing!
I have arranged my studio so that it is a relaxing place for new Moms and Dads. I have beverages, snacks, Netflix and a couch for snoozing . . . what more does a new parent need? I love that parents can sit back and relax while I work with their little one and in fact, many parents tell me after that our session that it was the most uninterrupted relaxation time they have had recently. Other parents love to watch the whole session and ooohhh and aaahhh over how cute their baby is . . . and I love that too! This is YOUR baby and YOUR session.
The session will last anywhere from 1.5-3 hours depending on the baby’s needs. This is all about the baby, and we take as much time as necessary.
To book a session, please contact me, and we can set up a time for you to come check out the studio and my products or we can connect on the phone to answer any questions.
