Maternity sessions are scheduled during months 7-9 of your pregnancy (the PERFECT little pick-me-up through those long months). We'll work together to pick a location, and you'll have access to my bump-friendly client closet (or wear a favorite outfit from your own closet!) Significant others, pets, kids - all are welcome to be a part of this session with you. Throughout your session I'll give you prompts and poses - I can't tell you how many times I've heard "wow, that was so much easier/more fun/less stressful than we thought it would be!" I AM GOOD AT MAKING YOU LOOK GOOD! Your session will last about an hour with up to two outfits. You can expect to get your edited gallery within 2 weeks via a password protected, downloadable online gallery.
Newborn sessions happen in your home during the first two weeks after birth. (Scheduling note: I mark your due date on my calendar when you book and then we coordinate the actual session date after baby is born). The best part of these sessions is that I bring everything to you: curated swaddles and onesies, postpartum-friendly dresses (totally optional), a Moses basket, & space heater. Your house will be PERFECT just the way it is. I'm not at all concerned with decor styles, shadowy light, clutter, big or small spaces - this is where you do life, so it will be beautiful just the way it is. These sessions are baby led - it always helps to have baby fed and sleepy when I arrive, but I know newborn life is unpredictable and we will work around baby's needs such as feedings, diaper changes, etc. When it comes to photo time, I'll direct your poses and give you prompts - I'm great at coaxing out those genuine expressions without leaving you feeling awkward. You can expect your gallery delivered via online, password protected, downloadable gallery within 2 weeks after the session.
Hospital Sessions happen at any time during your stay in your birthing center. I'll mark your due date in my calendar when you book and will be sure to have availably around that time. You'll let me know the happy news when baby is born and I'll clear my calendar to come meet the new little bundle! I'll bring my curated swaddle and onesie collection with me and we'll get a variety of baby-focused and family-focused photos. These sessions are always baby-led: feedings, changings, nurse check-ins are all totally to be expected. We'll go with the flow! The best part about these sessions is that I deliver your gallery within 24 hours, which means you'll get to share some beautiful pictures with friends and family while baby is still fresh!
These beautiful, documentary style sessions are full of photos your family will pore over again and again through the years. The best part? You'll finally be in the frame, in the moment. We'll work together to pick the perfect activity for your family (think bowling, ice cream shop, making pancakes in your jammies...), and I'll tag along. I will let you guys do your thing (with just a little directing from me here and there), and I promise there will never be an easier session than this. You can expect your photos delivered within two weeks of your session via an online, downloadable gallery.
FAMILY MINI SESSIONS
Family Mini Sessions are a great way to get those sweet smiles for frame-able portraits, and it's not nearly as stressful as you think it's going to be. When it comes to getting kiddos to have a good time, I not-so-humbly consider myself an expert. We'll all be bff's before the session is over and you'll be SO happy you did it. Family Mini Sessions are typically scheduled in October at a hand-picked location, but reach out if you have a need before then, I might just be able to squeeze you in!
