I like sessions to tell your story and unfold naturally. I love taking advantage of natural light and including elements of both lifestyle and traditional/posed photography. I love close up, detailed shots. I specialize in creating beautiful, heirloom quality printed art for display in your home. Most sessions take place during the week; weekends incur an additional fee. All newborn sessions are scheduled Monday through Friday, in the morning.
We will start planning your session from our first conversation. We will discuss your goals and vision for your session as well as what makes your family unique. What is it about your family and children at this point in life that you want to document and capture? We will discuss your home decor and style as well as where you envision displaying your art. We will use this information to help plan your session location and details. We can also discuss what to wear for your session as well. All of the pre-planning helps make your session go smoothly.
Locations are chosen based on your vision and goals for your session. Whether its your home, outdoors or in the studio, I will make sure that you and your family feel comfortable and relaxed. The majority of images will be of your natural interactions as a family. I will also help guide you towards interactions that help bring out those genuine and unique family emotions.
Design & Ordering Appointment
Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session, we will meet in my home for your Design & Ordering Appointment. At this one-hour appointment, you will view your images and design your printed art for your home. You will be able to touch and feel the products that I have to offer. Using state of the art software, we will view designs that blend easily with your style and home decor. Your final product will be delivered within 2-4 weeks of your Ordering Appointment.
