What Kind of photographer are you? My work is authentic and soulful. As a trained fine art painter I imagine your family as art. Rather than light and airy my work is bold, with rich tones and vibrant color. I provide you with both pulled back environmental portraits as well as closer, intimate crops. Images from your session often tell a story, capturing a treasured moment in time. I do not try to make you look perfect, stiff, or unnatural. I want to capture your genuine selves and what makes you a unique family.

Where will my session be held? I am a natural light, on-location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session. Newborn sessions are held at home.

What is a session like with you?  Before we even meet I get to know you and your kids with a pre-consult or what I refer to as a ‘Connection Call’. I can then prepare a session experience designed just for you and your vision. My goal is for you to feel prepared and relaxed when you arrive to your session. I promise you won't worry about your child's behavior because I will have prepared you on how I handle everything that could possibly go wrong.  

While I don't do traditionally posed photos I do guide and direct you most of the session.  I not only want you to receive beautiful photos but also an experience with your family to treasure. 

When do newborn sessions occur? I ideally like to do newborn sessions within the first two weeks of life. But that isn't always possible and with lifestyle newborn sessions we have the flexibility to do your newborn session when you are ready.

What should I wear?  After booking with me I will help you on all the details of choosing a wardrobe for your family that is easy.You can also refer to my blog post on What To Wear HERE.


When, where, and how will I get my photos and products? We will meet 1-2 weeks after your session to view your photos at your Print & Design Appointment. I will all ready have an idea of your printing goals before we meet from your session pre consultation. Using fancy software I will show you how your photos will look on your wall or in albums! I also create slideshows and phone apps of your photos for easy sharing. After you order your collection they will be delivered to you in about a month depending on the product. I give you paper templates for all your wall portraits for easy hanging. You will find I am very detail oriented!

Will I receive Digital Copies of my Photos? Yes! Every Collection comes with a selection of Hi Res digital files plus additional low res files for internet use. But I want to make sure your photos don’t get lost or unused on your computer.

How far out are you booked? I book as early as 2 weeks in advance. If you are interested in newborn sessions or a Fresh 48 session in the hospital, please inquire while you are pregnant. Already delivered? No problem. I try to leave openings in my schedule for last minute newborn sessions.

How much does all of this cost? You pay a Session Fee up front and then purchase your prints/digital File Collection after viewing your photos. Full Session Fees Start at $100. Most Families spend between $450-$1200 on their custom designed collection. Go to my Contact Page to request a consultation.
