view real sessions i've been honored to capture
These sweet boys came to me after their parents had their super amazing studio Maternity Session.
They were born early and had a short stay at the NICU, therefore their session was done when they were a bit older. We did more wrapped poses as the table wasn't an option, they did not like to be fussed with! Lots of beautiful images from this session still.
You are likely overwhelmed with all the maternity and newborn information out there, but don’t worry - you’re not alone. I am a seasoned professional who is here to help you document one of the biggest life events so you have beautiful memories for years and years to come.
Let me capture all the tiny features for you, so you won't forget!
your sweet baby is almost here!
BECAUSE YOU DESERVE TO REMEMBER YOUR FIRST MOMENTS TOGETHER.
Take a look at my portfolio to get a good feel for the style and type of images you can expect in your own gallery. See the natural colors, set designs and beautiful light that I specialize in.
Reserving your session
When we book your newborn session date, I always enter it as your due date. I will then send over my booking proposal, it goes over everything you need to know and then you can send your deposit. This non-refundable retainer secures your session. Once paid, I turn away business for around due date / session date to ensure my availability for you. I only book so many newborn sessions a month
The moment you’ve been waiting for!
Newborn Session are scheduled by your due date until babe is born. Once your bundle has arrived, we set the date on the calendar for your Session.
It is important to have your Traditional Newborn Session in the first two weeks of baby’s life ~ ideally 6-15 days new! This is when they are still curly and sleepy and they don’t mind being transitioned from pose to pose while they rest in dreamland!
Your Maternity Session is a time set aside for you to meet me, see my studio, and capture timeless images. Read next slide.
For maternity, we will select a couple gowns for you to try on and chose for our session. We will go over some of my favorite locations for your session.
Studio Maternity Sessions are held in studio when mom is typically 32-36 weeks. They are held Monday to Friday around 11:00am with some flexibility.
Partners and siblings are more than welcome!
Get glammed up or go au natural, whichever you prefer! I have an amazingly talented Hair and Makeup Artist for you to book. Make sure to leave with lots of time to arrive on time. Newborn sessions can take 2-3 hours depending on how sleepy and tolerant baby decides to be. Maternity and milestone sessions are about 30-45 minutes.
When your gallery is ready, in about 2-3 weeks after your session, you will receive a link to download your favorite digital images. In addition to your digital images, you can purchase beautiful albums or wall art that will allow you to cherish these memories for a lifetime. Creating beautiful keepsakes of these precious memories is what I specialize in.
My pricing is simple... I require a non-refundable deposit to book your date. This includes holding your date, clothing consult, gown try ons, location scouting and session planning. Remaining balances are due the day before your session. You will have the option to upgrade your package once the gallery is delivered.
PAYMENT PLANS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST
Newborn Sessions starting at $595
