What kind of photographer are you?
My sessions are very casual and relaxed. You can expect me to show up in my favorite pair of flip flops and a diet coke in hand. I love getting to know the people and families I photograph, so don’t be concerned when I immediately chat up your family and kids right off the bat.
I’m all about evoking feeling and capturing both the love and people in the moment, and fusing it with a more traditional and modern style. And my photography is NOT about stuffy, unnatural, or stiff photos. That is SO not my thing. I will take the lead and place you in a very loose pose, and ask you questions to evoke real emotion.
When should I schedule my session?
I am currently booking about 3 months out but please contact me in case you have a more immediate need just in case. The best time to schedule a maternity session is around weeks 30-35 of your pregnancy. This is when you’ll have a nice round bump and are still feeling great.
Newborn sessions take place within the first 10 days after birth. Let me know as early in your pregnancy as possible about booking your session. Since we rarely know when babies will be born, I always leave extra room in my schedule around your due date to schedule your session after delivery.
Family, child and baby sessions can take place any time. However, I only shoot around the hours of sunset or sunrise.
Where will my session take place?
Together we can decide on a perfect location for your family based on your personalities and personal style and preferences. This might be a golden sunlit field, an urban downtown location or your own home. All newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your own home.
What should I wear?
What you wear at your session makes a huge difference in the outcome of your images and this is one of the questions clients ask me most before a session. Most importantly, you should dress in a way that you are comfortable and feel great about yourself. I am a huge fan of soft neutral colors for newborn sessions, but I also love pops of color at other sessions. I have a pinterest board with plenty of suggestions to look through for inspiration. For families, it’s best to choose within a color palate rather than everyone wearing the same color. Limit patterns to one or two members of the family and avoid characters or logos on clothing. For more information on what to wear, be sure to check out this page.
When will I get my images/how will they be delivered?
We live in a digital world and I know the importance of having all the digital images from your session. Your images grow in value over time to you and your family members and that’s why I want you to have them all. So, all of my sessions include a purchase beautiful professional prints and canvases.
Do you offer prints?
Yes. Your portrait session photos take up to 3 weeks to edit and process. You will receive a private link to your password protected gallery where you can see all the images and share links to your favorites with family and friends.

What is your Session Fees?
The session fee is paid in advance to secure your chosen date. It is non-refundable should you cancel, but is transferable to another date in the event you wish to amend your booking with at least 24 hours notice. The session fee does not include any images, either prints or digital negatives; these must be purchased separately.
