What is the session like?
Each portrait session is tailored to fit the needs of your family. Most sessions will usually last 1-2 hours. They can take place in your home – indoors & outdoors – or at the location of your choice. Wherever you are the most comfortable. I also love to shoot urban portrait sessions. Warehouses, old cars, and weathered old buildings are some of my favorites. And since I love shooting with the natural light of the sun, we will need good light to create your beautiful portraits. So please remember when planning an outdoor session, early mornings or late afternoons are best.
For your newborn session, please contact me before the birth of your child. Why? Because the most angelic newborn photos happen during the first 2 weeks of life (the first 5-7 days is best) — when babies are all curled up and still so very very sleepy. So when you book your session, I’ll use your due date as a guide. Just call me when the baby arrives so I can schedule accordingly. Then, I will come to you! You don’t have to worry about cleaning or straightening up (you’ve just had a baby!) I will just pretend I don’t see anything… I can move miscellaneous things out of the background. We will take plenty of breaks during the shoot for nursing, diaper changes, etc. And if you haven’t already booked and your little one has just arrived, contact me now! I still might be able to squeeze you in – I just love newborns!
No matter what type of session it is, it will be relaxed and stress free! We will take some time to get to know each other, and have fun. We will pose some of the shots throughout the session, but I really love to capture you being you! And your children being themselves – playing, laughing, or exploring. My favorite type of family sessions are full of “real life” living and loving each other. My goal is to capture the spirit of your family, for portraits that you will treasure for a lifetime ♥
