about your session
Fun! In my sessions, we will laugh and smile as we create portraits you will cherish for a lifetime. Outside or inside, I use light, movement, and sound to capture images that express a wide range of emotions - playful, spirited, serene, serious, and thoughtful. My whimsical collection of props, such as a vintage tricycle, an antique sled, and crocheted baby wraps tastefully embellish any setting.
Upon booking your session, we will have a phone consultation to finalize location, to discuss clothing, and to answer all questions you may have. Also I provide a brief questionnaire that further helps me personalize your portrait session.
about your investment
Your investment preserves treasured moments for you to enjoy year after year. During your session I photograph a unique selection of custom images for you to display on your wall or to view in a beautifully designed album. My service includes your consultation, the session, and access to your private online viewing gallery. Included in each package are edited images from which you can select a print order (based on package), and all digital images (with a print release).
special note about newborn sessions:
A newborn session is a leisurely, unhurried session that provides you plenty of time to feed, burp and change your baby. The “best age” for newborn portraits is certainly open to interpretation when it comes to photographers. I believe the first two weeks of birth are ideal because that is when babies are the sleepiest. Very often, after two weeks many babies just seem to "wake" up. Rest assured, that if it is not possible to take photographs during the first two weeks, we can schedule a time when I will capture your newborn’s precious moments for you.
We will take time to photograph portraits with both parents and siblings, but the focus is on your newborn. I will photograph this session in my home studio or the comfort of your home. This works perfectly for both newborns, siblings and their parents. My collection of precious props include an assortment of colored blankets, wraps, baskets, headbands and beautifully handmade crocheted pants and hats.
