Engagement sessions are a wonderful way to get comfortable in front of the camera and with me before the big day! It is included into most wedding packages for that reason.
newborn in home session
It is no secret that newborns and babies are a favorite of mine to photograph! We offer a session in the comfort of your own home! I prefer natural light if you have a room with lots of light and a blank wall, or a nursery you would like to shoot in. Perhaps a master bedroom? I prefer to check out the space on these ahead of time if possible. That way I know if I need to bring lighting or not. I find that babies are most comfortable in their natural home setting, which makes it easier for the parents as well! (You won’t forget anything at home or have to drag everything with you… and getting the baby to sleep tends to be easier too!) Older siblings can join the fun as well! I prefer to do babies under 3 weeks of age… at 3 weeks they hit a natural growth spurt and tend to fuss a bit more and after 3 weeks you miss that tiny newborn stage!
Don’t feel comfortable with having someone in the room taking pictures while you are in labor? No problem! Just let me know when you are going to the hospital or the first day there and I can come within the first 48 hours and still get that hospital or birthing center setting or at your house if you had a home birth. You get your downloads within a few days so you have them in time for facebook posts or birth announcements. I know the hospital provides this service option for you but I have a bit of a different twist on it. I story tell in my pictures and give you a simple birth announcement shot as well! Want to show a sibling meeting the new baby? Let me know! I am so grateful the photos we have of our kids the first few days of their lives. They are priceless to me. Besides, my prices are comparable to the hospital photographers!
Tweens are the ages between 9-12 where they are not really little kids nor are they teens yet… I love this stage. I have two tweens of my own! They grow amazingly fast at this stage so it’s a good idea to capture them at this precious age that doesn’t last long. They will be teens before you know it!
High School Seniors
Watch my facebook page or instagram to know about dates on seasonal themed mini sessions! Be the first to know by asking to be added to me e-mail list! I typically do a Christmas and fourth of July as well as one other (spring, Valentine’s, Mother’s or Father’s Day, or a summer themed mini) These are super relaxed, short sessions that are great for kids because there is a lot to keep them busy and happy! I always bring a snack and drink of some sort to share at the end of the session. These are perfect for seasonally updating your facebook pictures or gifts for family! Gift certificates are available!
