A typical session will last between 30 to 90 minutes. It is helpful with children to let them take breaks and allow extra time to capture those true expressions that are unique to them. A newborn session may last up to 3 hours to allow time for feedings, changing, and comforting.
Where children are involved you will see me in my most embarrassing moments where my true self comes out. I love making a fool of myself for the sake of a natural smile, giggle and even belly laugh out of those little ones that need some extra encouragement!
I love shooting on location (outdoors) at a location of your choice, however I do have some favorites if you are in need of some suggestions! I use a studio in my home for newborns and children or as backup on those days when the weather doesn’t cooperate! We can work together on this to find the perfect fit for your session.
The Newborn session should be scheduled prior to the baby’s birth, if possible. I recommend doing your newborn session within the first 10 days of life. This is the time when they are most sleepy and squishy and are easily moldable into all those adorable poses. I have an in home studio with plenty of props for your session. These sessions typically last up to 3 (or more) hours to allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and to capture those sweet, sleepy pictures.
Within 2 weeks of your session I will post a password protected online gallery of 20-30 images. Your gallery will be up for 5 days, in which time you may place your order for print products or digital images. After 5 days the gallery will be taken down and there will be a $35 charge to reactivate the gallery for an extra 2 days. Please contact me to assist in choosing the perfect print products for your home and family needs.
All ordered images are archived for one year, all unordered images are purged after 30 days.
