Process: Tell me about your sense of style. A picture of your nursery or living room can provide me with a good idea. Sharing your pinterest boards with me will also tell me more about your sense of style and what inspires you. It is important to think about where and what you might do with your end product. Are you interested in an album or a large wall canvas? This helps direct me as to how to plan the shoot and what colors or picture arrangements would work best.
Maternity sessions are a unique way to capture the excitement of preparing for a miracle! The anticipation is overwhelming and what a wonderful way to remember the joy you experience than with photographs that last a lifetime.
Newborn sessions are a wonderful experience as I come right to your house. New parents are often sleep deprived and prefer to keep their new miracle in the safety of their home. This is a stress free situation for baby and parents. It is best to photograph a newborn in the first 7-10 days of life. The earlier the better! I bring props, backdrops, lighting, and little tricks to help your baby feel comfortable for those precious sleeping baby photos. Baby sessions are often requested at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months as well. A smash the cake session is a blast!
Family sessions are fun! I encourage interaction and play in a natural environment. Parks, homes, playgrounds etc. are wonderful sites. There is not a specific time constraint on the session so no bribing or threatening is necessary. Besides everyone prefers natural smiles over the "cheese" face. Families often leave the session saying "That was really fun!"
Senior sessions capture a momentous time in a young adults life. It is a time where self-consciousness can over shadow the amazing young adult they have become. It is my goal to show each person how the world views them…beautifully! It is such a compliment when a young lady says I did not know I could like that and I say, but that is YOU!
Engagement/Weddings: Weddings are such a privilege to be a part of. My philosophy is to build a relationship with the bride and groom which always leads to amazing photographs filled with genuine emotion. It is so important to have a good rapport with your photographer. You will be with them for one of the most important days of your life. Their vision needs to be consistent with yours! Every bride and groom receives a complimentary engagement session. This builds a relationship as well as provides a time to education them about positioning etc. It makes the wedding day much easier.
