Let's make some magic together!   


Maternity Sessions

I love the beauty and glow of the pregnant body and I love to capture the joy of expectant parents.  I enjoy shooting bellies at any stage of pregnancy; I personally love the larger-than-life, full-term bellies and can appreciate the mamas who like the smaller, second trimester look. 

I enjoy shooting on location at people’s homes, in nearby parks, and any other location that doesn’t require too far of a drive.  (We can talk about an added fee for time and expenses if you have your heart set on something a little further away.)

Time: 2-3 hours of shooting, time is flexible, location is too!

Images: 30-60 images, fully edited.  You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $300


Infant Sessions

My goal is to document Baby’s first experiences in this world as well as the parent’s first experiences with Baby.  This session includes a lot of types of images, including those precious sleeping baby images, kisses from siblings if baby has them, images with the parents, other family members who you’ve asked to be in the pictures, and the setting of baby’s first few days.  This is A LOT to capture in a few hours, and we work with Baby's wants and needs in that time.  I don’t always get everything I hope for, but I always have a selection of images at the end of the shoot that will make your heart melt and your memory rich.

In order to get really sleepy baby pictures, this session needs to happen within baby's first 10 days after birth.  I can get a wealth of amazing lifestyle images after that mark, but will be less likely to have a sleeping, nakey angel chilling all by herself in a cozy blanket.

Time: 3-4 hours of shooting, usually in the morning, at your home.

Images: 50-75 images, fully edited.  You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $350

Family, Baby, and Kiddo Portraits, Lifestyle and Portrait

Family Portraits 

Whether you are looking for a holiday card, an annual time-stamp of your family’s history, or a special occasion, I would love to come join your family for some fun and adventure with photos thrown in there as well.  Whether I'm focusing on your newest edition, all of your kiddos, or the whole family, I try to capture the personality and feel of my subjects one their own, as they interact with each other, and as we make them sit relatively still and smile for a family portrait.  We’ll do it all and have fun doing it!

Time:  45 min - 3 hours, depending on the session.

Images : 10-60 images, fully edited, depending on the type of session you set up.  You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $250-$350

Mini Sessions

Mini sessions can only be done in conjunction with other families, either when I offer them and others sign up or you organize a group of friends!  If you are really just looking for a holiday card picture that is frameable, this might be for you. 

Time for Mini Session: 20 - 30 mins, scheduled around other families.  Set location.

Images: 3-10, images, fully edited.  You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $150

Mini Sessions are available from time-to-time as well, or if you want to gather a group of families together!  Lower cost, shorter shoot, fewer images, great for holiday cards.


Nursing Portraits

Nursing is a passion of mine, something I didn’t expect to be so beautiful before I had my son.  (That is, after those first six weeks, that was nothing but pain!!)  It is a gift not all of us are given in our child rearing experiences and I personally see it as sacred.  Though I usually shoot nursing portraits during infant sessions, I would be honored to create a simple nursing session for you and your nursing babe(s). On location, in your home, whenever is best for your little.  Let’s make some time to remember you for the Madonna Mama you are!

Time:  1 – 1.5 hours, time is flexible.

Images: 5 – 15 images, fully edited. You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $200


Professional Portraits

Getting professional portraits can be fun!!  Come hang out with me and we’ll get a natural looking, flattering portrait for your marketing materials.  I shoot with natural light, on-location, no cheesy backdrops available.

Time: 1 hour of shooting, time is flexible, location is too!

Images: 3-6 images, fully edited.  You are able to download all of the images with a print release and have them printed and on-line them wherever you like.  I also give you an option for seamless print ordering directly from my site, from a trusted lab.

Cost: $175.  Have a team to photograph?  I do bulk pricing if you have a group! (Doesn’t have to be all from one company).

What do you need to do to prepare for your shoot?  Here are some tips!

Events

Blessingways, Baby Welcoming/Naming celebrations, baptisms, birthdays, and other celebrations that may or may not start with the letter “B”!  Talk to me about your needs.  The price depends largely on how much time spent at your even and preparing for it.  Prices will be in line with those listed above in terms of time and cost.  I love the beauty of ceremony and will work to document the feel of the event for you to reflect on with your family for years to come.
