MATERNITY + NEWBORN COLLECTIVE
For those wanting to schedule both a signature maternity session and a signature newborn session, I offer a Maternity + Newborn Collective.
The Materntiy + Newborn Collective is $300 (a savings of $100 if scheduled individually).
THE FIRST YEAR COLLECTIVE
For those wanting to capture all the important milestones and changes that happen in your baby's first year, I offer a Watch Me Grow Collective. This collection includes three signature sessions, which can be scheduled for:
4 months (better head control, tummy time)
6-8 months (sitting unassisted), or
one year (standing, walking).
If your baby is already past the four month mark, I also offer a family session at 18 months that can be part of your First Year Collective.
The Collective Membership is $500, and includes three signature sessions as well as a complimentary set of birth announcements if a newborn session is part of your collective.
Newborn sessions are such an incredible experience - and one that you will never ever regret. They are family-centered, and aim to capture the deep love you have for your newest little one in a natural, timeless way.
Newborn sessions run smoothest when they are photographed between 1 and 3 weeks of age. Because my schedule fills quickly, it's best to book your session before your baby is born. Your session date is based on your estimated due date and can be adjusted once your little one arrives.
These session can either be at my home studio, where it is cozy and intimate. Client love being able to relax while baby has photos taken. The other option is a lifestyle session in the comfort of your home. It is here where we will take beautiful, cuddly photos and let your new family story unfold.
The session itself will take anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours, depending on how many breaks we take for feeding and comforting baby.
Feel free to bring along any sentimental items such as baby blankets, wraps, etc, but don’t worry too much about what baby will wear. I typically photograph newborns in a plain white onesie or a diaper cover, and most of the wraps and blankets seen in my portfolio are from the studio and will be available to use for your newborn session.
Babies have my heart. Their rolls. This little dimples. Their watchful eyes. They change so much and I am here to help you capture these memories in a artistic and meaningful way.
These sessions are a great way to photograph your little one as they reach different milestones such as grabbing toes, sitting unassisted, standing and learning to walk.
The time to reach a certain milestone will be different for each baby. Better head control and grabbing toes usually happens somewhere between 4 and 6 months. Sitting unassisted can be anywhere from 6 months to 8 months. Standing and learning to walk can be anywhere from 8 months to 1 year or older.
I also offer very simple cake smash sessions for one year old babies. These sessions are on a plain white backdrop with minimal decorations.
My baby sessions are simple and natural, keeping the focus on your sweet baby. I have a variety of timeless outfits, onesies, blankets and natural wooden props that are available to use, many of which can be seen throughout my portfolio.
Like all of my other sessions, the entire immediate family can be included at no additional charge.
Family sessions are another favorite of mine. They are fun, relaxed and aim to capture the natural interactions between you and your loved ones. There will be some posed/smiling/looking at the camera photos, but there will also be some candid photos that show the true emotion and love of your family. I want to show your family's closeness, and I want you to feel tingly and happy inside when looking at these photos.
Family sessions are held either at my studio or at a location of your choice. Studio sessions give more flexibility in terms of time of day and weather, but outdoor sessions provide a beautiful back drop, especially as the weather changes from season to season.
I photograph my outdoor sessions when the sun is setting or early in the morning when the sun is rising. I have a few spots that I use frequently that are quiet, beautiful, and dog friendly. Have a special place in mind? I always welcome your input and ideas to create something truly unique for your family.
