With each session, there are two options: in-studio lifestyle and outdoors! We sit down and plan your session top to bottom. We always include siblings and I highly encourage you and your spouse to participate as well! I am a photographer who values family, so in each session, you do with me, everyone is always included (if we can we will even include your pets!) Safety is also something that is a top priority to me. I was a NICU nurse for some time and I am also safety-certified in properly wrapping and posing your baby. Please, when looking for a photographer always make sure they are certified in newborn safety. 

Planning

step 1

As your photographer, it is my job to make sure your whole family looks their absolute best. If you don't love your wardrobe selections, you won't love your images. So, I guide you through the whole process of selecting your color pallet and choosing items for your family that will all compliment each other but aren't too matchy-matchy. I provide wardrobe for your newborn, dresses for women of all body types as well as a children's wardrobe up to size six. 

For all sessions, you will come into my studio to try on my designer gowns so we can find something you feel amazing in. If we don't, I am happy to order a dress you love and add it to my client closet! Due to Covid, this looks just a little different. We will take your measurements, and I will bring your top favorites to your session. We will make sure we plan timely for these adjustments! 

Styling

step 2

Your session time will vary. Usually, a family session takes about a little over an hour, whereas cake smashes and newborns take close to three hours - but please don't worry! I don't put a time limit on documenting your family. I will follow the lead of your family and how everyone is feeling throughout the process. My passion is to document your family as they are, kids get rowdy, newborns don't always want to settle and that is okay. My goal is for you to love what we create together. I never force kids to do things they don't want to do, and for newborns, I'll never pose your baby in a way that is uncomfortable for them. I am highly trained in newborn safety and posing. Safety is my number one priority for everyone in your family. By the time your session rolls around the whole family will be excited to go!
