So you have a new baby? Congratulations, there is nothing sweeter. I combine traditional and documentary photography to capture those precious moments as you feed, change, bond with and love your newest family member. Expect the unexpected during these sessions. There will be crying, eating, peeing, pooping and spit up. (Hopefully, this will all come from the baby!). My goal is to take the stress out of your photography session and capture your unique family connection. I can’t wait to meet the newest member of your family and capture special moments for you to treasure forever.

FAQ

What is Lifestyle Photography?

Lifestyle photography combines traditional and documentary photography and focuses on real moments and emotions. While I will guide you on where to stand and give you guidance on how to interact, my goal is to capture those natural moments between you and those you love and turn them in to art that you can admire for years to come.

Why should I book with you?

That’s a great question! I love photographs. Every photograph in my home brings me such joy and transports me back in time to when the image was captured and where our family was at the time. I want to give you the same experience. My sessions are fun and stress-free. You will not only see the beauty in your images, you will remember the fun that you had creating them. I offer a pre-session consultation to ensure that all of your questions or worries are addressed. I will have custom edited images to you within 2 weeks. Printed images come are delivered in beautiful, boutique packaging. I want to make your experience memorable, relaxed and stress free from start to finish!

Do you charge a Session Fee?

My session fee is included in my pricing. I do require a 50% deposit to secure your date with the balance due before the session.

Will I receive digital images from the session?

After your session you will be given a link to you online gallery where you can view, download and purchase digital images. Your gallery will contain 50-100 edited, high resolution images. If you chose the standard package you can choose 20 images to download. If you chose the Platinum package you will be able to download all of the images from your gallery and will receive a print release with your download. I recognize that photographs become memories to be treasured for generations so you can also turn your images in to works of art that you can proudly display in your home. You will have 30 days to view your images and make purchases from your gallery.

When is the best time for a newborn session?

I recommend scheduling your session in the first 2 weeks after birth. Be sure to book early as sessions fill up quickly.

Can my other children be included?

Absolutely. This is a special time for your family and I recommend including siblings. I prefer to have the siblings photographed with the newborn at the beginning of the session as they tend to lose interest quickly.

What should we wear?

I love neutral colors such as cream, grey and beige. Dads and siblings should wear coordinating neutral colors. I want the focus to be on your new baby, not on the wardrobe. Visit my blog page to see guidelines for your newborn session.

Can I download and print my images?

Absolutely. You have print rights to all of the digital images included in your package. I do recommend using my professional lab to order prints as I believe that every photograph, no matter the size, is a work of art. I do not guarantee the print quality of images printed elsewhere.

Can I order additional products?

Absolutely. We can set up a video chat or in person visit to view your gallery and choose images and products that you can treasure for years to come.

Do you offer mini sessions?

No. Mini sessions don’t fit with my style of photography. My goal is not to capture one perfect image for you. I want to capture a collection of images that you can enjoy for many years.
