Newborn Sessions


Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home and include immediate family members within the first 4 weeks of birth. It is best to set aside 3.5 hours for the session, although I try to keep it to around 2.5 hours, to ensure we have enough time to take feeding breaks and rest times for siblings and baby (and mom!). I will make sure to capture your family’s personal connection around your newborn joining the family as well as the tiny details that you don’t want to forget. You will have at least 45 images in your gallery in both color and black and white.

Family Sessions

Family sessions take place outdoors and include immediate family members and usually last around 1-1.5 hours. My goal is to create playful and positive interactions so I can capture your family’s authentic connection and personalities. I specialize in working with shy kids and grumpy husbands!

Maternity Sessions

Maternity Sessions are available at a special rate when booked alongside a Newborn Session. The focus is all on you and your baby bump alongside your children who are getting ready to become a big sister or brother!

Birth Place {Fresh 48} Session

Birth is an amazing event and the precious moments in the hours following can pass by in a blur. A birth place session guarantees those raw memories will be savored forever. Your session will take place in your baby’s place of birth (hospital, home, birth center). These sessions are completely documentary in nature. I come in and capture you connecting with your new baby. This session is only for the immediate family. I keep my schedule open around your due date and will visit your space within the first 48 hours of life or before you are discharged from the hospital. Sessions usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour. These sessions are stress free and relaxed. No prepping necessary.
