Session prices start at $650 and many families spend $3500 and up investing in albums and frames to preserve their family story.
For more details on session availability and the cost of investment, please contact me.
You will receive your gallery three weeks from your session date. You can rush your order for $100 and have your gallery one week from your session date.
I frequently photograph in my client’s home (especially for newborn sessions), provided there is good window light, and at least one room with light or neutral colored walls.
I always recommend that my clients work with a professional hair and makeup artist prior to their session. The artists I recommend are trained to make you look flawless for the camera.
Whether you are looking for a natural look, or something a bit fancier than normal these artists know what they are doing. Many of my clients wear minimal makeup in their day to day, and were incredibly pleased with their decision to trust a professional to prepare them for their session day.
It will give you an extra boost of confidence for being in front of the camera, and provide a well deserved feeling of luxury as part of your custom photography experience.
when should i schedule newborn photos?
The sooner the better... one of my favorite emails is when a mom contacts me right after she finds out she is pregnant. The earlier you reach out, the more time we have to plan outfits, ideal lighting in your home, hair and makeup, etc. I also have moms who reach out after they have their babies and oftentimes I can accommodate their preferences. I do recommend booking two to three months in advance.
How often should i schedule photos?
I would recommend planning for a session at least twice a year. I think once as a whole family (for dad's sake) in the fall and once with mom and the kids in the spring (with extra photos of kids, individual portraits) or if you prefer family photos in the spring, switching it up. If you book a newborn session, I have a package that includes maternity, newborn and two milestone sessions for the first year (one is free) usually at 6 months and 12 months. The younger your kids are, the more often I would recommend photos since they change so quickly.
what should i wear for my session.
After booking, I will send you a session planning guide. I would start with finding your outfit mom and building out from there. When in doubt the more white, neutral, or pastel the better. I recommend only one pattern and two light, complementary colors. I have extensive Pinterest pages you can look at for inspiration. Some of my favorite brands are Doen, Christy Dawn, Free People, Zara Kids, Anthropologie, JCREW (for men), Rylee and Cru (for kids), Jamie Kay (for kids) and Iloura the label (for kids).
When do you recommend having newborn photos done?
I would recommend the first month of your babies life, although sometimes I photograph all the up to six weeks. When babies are born, they are very sleepy and more easy-going. If you have to schedule closer to the end of that window, we will still get beautiful portraits. Most of the set ups I use involve mom or dad holding the baby and babies are almost always happy in that space!
Will you use any props for our newborn session like what I see on Pinterest?
I value providing my clients with timeless portraits that can be cherished for generations. My goal is not to capture current trends, but to focus on photographing beautiful and authentic moments.
My newborn session approach is more about capturing the connection between a new baby and parents, and showing intimate emotion.
Please do not bring any newborn costumes to your session and most likely no props will be used.
I can provide a couple neutral swaddles or bows if you request so before your session.
