I love photographing babies, children, and their families in their homes or at outdoor locations! My sessions are casual, relaxed, and not rushed, so your children will have time to warm up to being photographed and have breaks if needed. I’m often found talking, singing, and playing to create natural smiles and expressions.
There's no fussy posing during my sessions, just capturing you and your family the way you are naturally. I will have an image in mind and then guide you to that, creating images that are a true representation of your child and/or family. You can trust that I will make you look your best and create beautiful photographs you will cherish for years to come.
For home sessions, I photograph your family and children in various rooms in your home. I can also use your backyard or front steps depending on the lighting at the time of your session. I will most likely work near a window or doorway, but I am also skilled in creating the look of natural light with my softbox. So no worries if it’s a rainy day or your home is dimly lit. I will assess the lighting when I arrive and determine what is needed.
An outdoor session with me will take place at a local park or downtown area. During booking I will help you choose a location that will be the perfect backdrop for your family’s images.
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home. I especially like using the nursery; the crib, nursery chair, or a decorative rug. Baby will be swaddled in blankets for most of the pictures, but if you have a special outfit we can include that too. I love family images with baby, including parents and siblings. Don't be concerned about your toddler being uncooperative, I have different options for getting them to be willing participates!
When I arrive, I will ask you to show me around your home to find the best spots for your session. Don't worry about the "mess" that might be in your home post delivery. I will only notice it long enough to move things aside and out of my picture frame! We take breaks for diaper changes, feedings, and I will take time to calm baby if needed with some tricks I've learned over the years.
Studio sessions are currently on hold due to Covid. Hoping that changes soon!
The Newborn Session
When you request a session, I will send you a link to a client site. It will contain additional session information; including details on how I work during the session, helpful hints for clothing, detailed pricing, model release, and session agreement. The session deposit and agreement are due within two days to hold your spot. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. I am here to help you along the way.
Don't worry about clothing options, I got you covered! Once you book, you will get a link to the Style & Select guide that will walk you through selecting just the right outfits for your family based on your personal style preference, ages/genders, sizes, and colors. It does all the hard work, you just need to make your selections!
Outdoor sessions are scheduled early in the morning and later in the afternoon, early evening. All the outdoor images you see in my portfolio were taken during those times, based on the sunrise and sunset time for that session day.
If you want to schedule an indoor session at your home, the time is much more flexible and can be booked during the mid to late morning. We can work around your baby’s nap schedule.
Celebrate and record the milestones of your baby’s first year! Purchase two sessions within a year and receive a third at no charge ($495 savings). All three sessions need to be completed in a 12-month period to qualify. Pricing for baby plan clients will remain the same throughout the 12-month period.
The first session is usually a newborn session, second session around 6-7 months once baby is sitting up on his/her own (in your home/nursery or outdoors), and the last at 12 months when baby is standing and sometimes walking.
6 -7 months, sitting
12 months, standing

Client investment starts at $495 and includes your portrait session, a viewing gallery of 40+ images for 7 days, and 10 high resolution digital images of your choice. Additional digital images, wall art, and fine art albums are available. $200 deposit due at booking. Contact me for the full pricing and product guide.
