Family Session

Family Sessions include two or more family members. They make take place on location or in your home. Most sessions take between one and two hours, depending on your stamina and the goals of the session. Each session is customized to meet your needs and can include as many family members as you like. May include wardrobe and location changes.

Extended Family Sessions

Extended Family Sessions typically include more than one immediate family, such as kids, parents, and grandparents. Extended Family Sessions take place on location and usually last two to three hours. The session is customized to meet your goals for the photo shoot and may include wardrobe and location changes, if desired.

Kids Session

Kids Sessions include one to three children and may take place on location, at your home, or in my home studio. If you would like to include more children or other family members, please consider a Family Session instead. Kids Sessions usually take the form of a fun play afternoon. Most kids photograph best when they are allowed to be themselves and have fun. These sessions include less formal posing and more genuine interaction. Depending on the style of the session they may be as quick as 30 minutes or up to several hours long depending on the age of the child/children and your goals for the session. Wardrobe and location changes are not recommended unless the youngest child is at least six years old.

Maternity Session

Pregnancy is a special time. Whether it is your first baby, your last baby, or one in between, this time is one to be cherished and remembered. The idea time to have your Maternity Session is when you are between 32 and 35 weeks pregnant. Please contact me as soon as possible so we can plan you session before the busyness of planning for baby gets too hectic. Your session may include just you, you and your partner, or the whole family - the choice is yours! Most clients choose their home as the location for their Maternity Session, but on location shoots are also possible.

Maternity Boudoir

Maternity Boudoir sessions can be scheduled in tandem with a traditional Maternity Session or by itself. Boudoir Sessions are designed to show off the gorgeous femininity of pregnancy. We will work together to plan a wardrobe that makes you look and feel fabulous. Boudoir Sessions may take place in your home or on location in a local hotel.

Newborn Sessions

In-Hospital Session

The first few days after the birth of your baby are wonderful and hectic. Capture those moments before you head home with your newborn with an In-Hospital Newborn Session. Birth Photography is not available at this time.

Posed Session

Posed Newborn Sessions take place when your baby is one to two weeks old. Posed Newborn Sessions are offered in my home studio on Tuesday and Friday mornings and you will have access to all my newborn wraps, headbands, and props. Posing newborns can't be rushed, so plan to spend three to four hours at this session.

Lifestyle Session

Newborn Lifestyle Sessions take place at your home during your baby's first month and may include your whole family. Lifestyle sessions take a peek into the beauty of everyday life during this special time.
