Thank you for choosing to work with Me!
I'm so looking forward to our time together! Whether it be a Newborn or Family Session, Fresh 48 Session or Family Film, I want you to feel prepped and ready!
I have an extensive list of beautiful outdoor locations for maternity and family sessions or we can discuss what a session in your home would look like. The possibilities are endless, but the result is the same - beautiful images that document the special bond between your family and all of the personality that comes along with it.
See below for your next steps, inspiration from the blog and Instagram as well as how to get an amazing perk. ;)
Please contact me with the session type you are seeking along with any other information you'd like to share! By now, I hope you have a great idea of who I am and what type of images I want to create for you. I can't wait to make it happen!
Upon booking, we will discuss the best date and time for your session. You'll fill out a contract + client form online so I get can to know you better, and pay a $200 deposit to reserve your spot. I'll provide you with a prep + location guide for us to work through, and we will get all of your details squared away!
We will meet up, play, have fun and get you some incredible images. My goal is to make your family comfortable and happy, with no tears involved.
After your session you'll receive a sneak peek + full gallery within three weeks (often sooner!)

Upon booking I'll provide you with a full location guide for outdoor sessions. Together will work through what will be the best fit for your family and vision! Sometimes that means a beautiful outdoor location, and other times it means getting cozy in your own home.
You'll find a lot of inspiration on my Pinterest, and I'll also provide you with a guide upon booking. Many clients like to send me photos of what they are thinking for a thumbs up or thumbs down, and I love that! I'm happy to help throughout the whole process.
My style is playful, authentic and full of life. I love to use light to make my subjects stand out and to tell a story. My clients always tell me how much fun they had and how comfortable they felt (even the dads!)
It doesn't need to be! I just need you, your family and your space and we will create magic. I've photographed families in hundreds of homes in a multitude of styles. I can confidently say my experience has allowed me to walk into a home and immediately assess our game plan for fantastic photos.
If you like to have fun, laugh and can totally go with the flow - we're probably a good fit! I try to keep our time together low-stress and fun for everyone. If photos of you playing, hugging and smiling together as a family that evoke genuine emotion are what you envision, then I'm your gal.
As soon as you know you're ready! If you are considering booking please contact me and get the process going. Most sessions are best booked a few months in advance, particularly newborns and family sessions held during spring or fall. Even if you're not ready to hash out all of the fine details that far in advance, it's cool. We can always discuss styling and concept in greater depth as the date approaches. But, let's at least save you a spot on the calendar!
As we all know, babies have their own agenda! When you book a newborn session with me, I pencil you in on my calendar for your due date, as I only accept so many newborn bookings per month. Then, I just ask that you contact me within the first few days after delivery and we will officially set up a day/time at that point. Lifestyle Newborn Sessions can be done anytime in the first 3 months. Posed Newborn Sessions should be done within the first two weeks.
Relax! Trust the process. I want your authentic interactions between you and your kids. It's okay if they don't follow every direction for an entire hour. If you relax and have fun your children will too. Both newborn and family clients will also receive a Welcome Guide to help prep for your session both clothing and general session flow wise.
I have a lot of techniques, games and ideas to make sure kids cooperate and have fun for a majority of the time! If they need a snack break, a cry break or just a quiet time break - that's cool with me too.
