The Experience

When you decide to book a session with me, I will schedule a pre-consultation phone call to discuss your portrait session. I want to learn your goals for the portrait session so that we can best choose a time and place. Which room in your home do you plan to hang your portrait art? What should everyone wear? During this call I will guide you through the process, and answer all your questions so you enjoy the experience, knowing that everything has been covered from the very beginning throughout the portrait process.

Maternity Sessions typically last about an hour. The session is focused on your growing bump, so there will be lots of holding and embracing your belly. The studio wardrobe has a varitey of colors and styles of gowns to help accentuate your new curves in all the right ways! Dad-to-be and any big siblings are encouraged to join in the photos.


Newborn Sessions typically last between 3 - 4 hours in length. It seems like a really long time, but it usually passes very quickly and it allows for any necessary breaks for cuddling, soothing and feeding as baby’s needs are my top priority. I will not be in any rush. I will take as much time as needed for the baby to fall into the perfect sleep,  because once baby is fully asleep they allow me to pose them. This produces the most adorable images. I will photograph your baby on my bean bag, using a variety of blankets and wraps. I will also photograph your newborn in the props I have provided. This is a unique, beautiful time in your lives, and I want to make sure you have photos of your growing family also!


Cake Smash Sessions will typically last about 45 minutes. They are a lot of fun! I take the stress of planning and decorating out of the equation. All you have to do is show up! I have the set, outfit, and cake ready to go based on our pre-consultation phone call. After the smash, I will capture images of your baby in a bubble bath to help clean up.


Family Sessions will typically last about an hour. The session will be based on what I’ve learned from our pre-consultation. During the session I will guide you through the poses, but much of the time I will be capturing the between poses, the candid moments.
