A First 48 is an ideal session for a client who isn't quite sure they want a birth photographer, but still hope to have all of those first moments captured


A First 48 Session captures all of the very first moments of your new baby.

Those adorable newborn yawns and sneezes, the first snuggles, meeting big sister or brother, smooches from Grandma, and that incredibly strong hold of Daddy's finger. It is fresh and raw and full of all that brand new baby deliciousness -- those wrinkly toes, that flaky skin, the tiny fingers...

The session will take place right in the location of your delivery,  within 48 hours of your baby's birth.  A First 48 session is a one hour long, lifestyle session and is intended for immediate family only, as the focus is on the baby. 

It can also be done as a 2-3 hour documentary session.
This is a more photo-journalistic approach and allows for more friends and family to meet the baby during the session.

Film add-on available.




A lifestyle newborn session is done right in the comfort of your own home. It is a 1-2 hour session, capturing some of the details of life at home with your new baby.

We will take a peek at the nursery you spent 9 months perfecting, your favorite newborn outfit, big brother or sister proudly showing off their new best friend, mom (or dad!) feeding the baby, etc. The focus is on the baby, but we will also spend some time getting some shots of the family. 

Complimentary hair and makeup are available for the new mom.

Film add-on available.




Part of the session will be spent capturing your children exploring, playing, dancing, and just being themselves. The goal is to capture photos that are so "them" and not unrealistically posed. I want you to remember your kids at this age as who they really are.

I also want you to remember how you play with your kids at this age, because it changes so much as they grow. I'll capture your silliness and your love for your children.

After they are comfortable in front of the camera and having a good time, we will spend some getting some group shots, sibling shots, and we cant forget some shots of just mom and dad while the kids play.
When was the last time you had a great photo of just the two of you?!

 My family portraits are a 1 hour outdoor session and are in line with my lifestyle approach.

Film add-on available.




The days are long, but the years are short. Document them.

You work so hard everyday, then wake up and do it all over again.
Before you know it, you'll look over at your significant other and notice how the years have changed them, the kids are more independent, and you'll wonder where the time has gone. Document it all now, before it passes.

A Day In The Life session is a documentary session,
capturing your day exactly how it happens. 

When you look back at your family photos, you should remember what your typical day was like -- The fun of cooking a big breakfast together on Saturdays, or the marathon event that is the weeknight bedtime routine. Your baby's sweet giggle when you tickle their piggies during a diaper change. The way your toddler wraps their arms around your neck before nap time.  A kiss on the cheek from your husband to fill you up when you're running on empty by the end of the day. 

These are the things you don't realize you'll miss, until you're already missing them. 
These are the days that deserve to be documented.

For this reason, I only take on a few sessions each month. Most clients will book around 2 months in advance, or longer for newborn sessions.
