What kind of a photographer are you?
I'm all about the family, newborn and maternity sessions. This is my season of life too and I am dedicated to telling your family's story in a beautiful and authentic way.
Do you travel?
Do I ever! We spend the summers crammed in our little canned ham trailer seeing all the sights we can see. I would love to link up in your neighborhood for your session! I am also available for travel at just about any time in the year.
Where do our sessions take place?
That's up to you and what you want from your session. If you are looking for sun-drenched and dreamy, we can head to one of my favorite locations. I even have a few exclusive spots just for my clients. Alternatively, if you're looking for a little view into your daily life, I highly recommend an in-home session. It's such an intimate portrayal of who your family is right at this moment.
How long are sessions?
On-location sessions are about an hour and take place right before sunset or right after sunrise (I can bring coffee). In-home sessions are anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half and usually take place in the morning (because again, coffee).
How do I pick between an on-location or in-home family session?
Both sessions hold a special place in my heart so I'm no help here. I can tell you that if you're looking for environmental portraiture, lots of movement and smiles, my on-location session will suit you just perfectly! If you are looking for tender and sweet and banana pancakes then I think we should meet at yours on a Sunday morning.
What should I bribe my kids with to Smile?
Are you ready to have your mind blown? The answer is nothing. Treat this session for what it is, a beautiful family experience and leave the kiddo management to me. I would suggest going out to dinner or for root beer floats after just to continue the fun but don't worry about your kids' behavior. I'm certainly not. The beauty of a fun session is that all of the smiles that you see will be genuine. Although, I'm a huge proponent of forced family fun I promise you real joy and real love in your gallery.
Do you offer lifestyle or posed newborn sessions?
I am a lifestyle newborn photographer. I am so in love with the authentic images that these sessions produce. This time in your family's life is so magical and I am so honored to be welcomed into your home to capture it. If posed is your jam, I have a few amazing photographer friends to introduce you to!
When do newborn sessions take place?
Within the first two weeks of life, ideally. There is pure magic in the air and baby is still sleeping more often than not. It is the perfect time for your session (and a rested looking family)! The beauty of lifestyle newborn sessions though is that they're flexible so don't worry if you want to wait until you're settled in.
When should I book my newborn session?
As soon as possible is my best answer. Because I am a mama first and I value each of my client's sessions like they're my own, I limit my bookings per month. So as soon as you're sure you want to go ahead with your session just let me know and I'll get you in my books for a tentative date.
Do you offer mini sessions?
Yes, a few times a year on designated dates and locations. Please join my mailing list by sending me an inquiry here and you'll be the first to know when dates open. You'll also have first choice at times.
What should I wear?
This is always a huge one. Don't worry, I have a session guide prepped and ready to go for all of your styling needs.
How long will my gallery take to edit?
Your gallery will be ready within 3 weeks at the latest! Usually sooner but never more. Need a quick turnaround? I do have a rush option if you need your gallery asap.
Can I order prints and albums in addition to my digitals?
Yes, please! I can only guarantee the quality of any prints and products ordered through me. My shooting style is made for heirloom albums and I would love to show you the hand-crafted line that I carry.
How do I book?
Send me an inquiry through my website right here and I'll get back within 24 hours with my latest availability. A signed contract and session fee is required to hold your date. I can't wait to meet your family!
