A word about family/child portrait sessions:
I keep my sessions with children fun and relaxed. I like to meet my clients at an agreed upon outdoor location (with some shade) such as a park, playground, or even your backyard. We will go with the flow, keep it fun, and get lots of natural expressions from your child/ren. I want this to be a low stress situation for you, and don't worry, we will get some great images for your family to cherish. Feel free to bring your child's favorite toy or blanket, or any other props you think would be fun.
A word about newborn sessions:
Please try to schedule your newborn session before you've had your baby because I usually photograph newborns within 5-10 days of birth. I will mark your due date on my calendar, and please let me know as soon as your little bundle arrives so we can choose a date. This is the time your baby will be in the "sleepy newborn" phase that is best for this type of photos. The session will take place in your home and is based around the baby's 'schedule' (or lack there of). Please allow for about 3-4 hours, as we will take lots of breaks for feeding, changing, and settling. I'll stay until we feel good about what we've gotten. I will bring lots of props, but we will also look around your house for props and cute personal touches that mean something to your family. If you have any of you or your spouse's baby things (hats, booties, blankets, etc), these are great props. Since these sessions can take a while, I encourage you to take a break, take a nap, eat or just relax! - it's actually better sometimes if the mom is not in the room because then the baby can't smell mom's milk.
A word about maternity sessions:
These sessions usually take place between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy - this is the best time to capture the baby bump, and also the time before you feel the most uncomfortable. I prefer to do maternity sessions outside in natural light, and we will choose a location special to you or even meet at your home. We will discuss the details of your session in advance - including wardrobe. I usually suggest one outfit change. This will be a fun and relaxed session where we'll celebrate the upcoming addition to your family. Spouses and siblings welcome!
A word about engagement sessions:
What an exciting time for you and your fiancé! We will choose a location that means something to you as a couple where you can enjoy some time together. Keep the outfits simple and comfortable, and feel free to bring a change of clothes for some variety. We will capture the fun of this exciting time in your life!
