I started doing maternity and newborn photography specifically because I only have one polaroid photo of myself when I was just three days old. Since then, I’ve made it my mission to work with families to capture their legacy for future generations. I have photographed over 300 expecting mamas and newborns in 2017 and loved every second of it. As your photographer, it is my job to capture your new baby and freeze these fleeting moments. How sweet it will be for you and your child to look back on these photos of your pregnancy, his tiny fingers, her curly eye lashes, his pouty lips, and your first family photo together. Babies don’t keep. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to capture your little miracle just as they are. Perfect, precious and oh so little.

WHAT TO EXPECT
After your initial inquiry, I will answer any questions that you have about selecting the best package for your needs. I will send you a contract and invoice to secure your slot on my calendar along with a questionnaire to get to know your style better. A deposit of $200 will be required to hold your session and can be paid with a credit or debit card online. Once your little one arrives, you will contact me via email within 48 hours of delivery and we will get you scheduled on a weekday within the first 20 days of your child’s life.
During your newborn session, you can sit back and relax on the couch while we take care of everything. I have a newborn assistant in my studio who works with me in keeping your baby safe and secure throughout the session. Depending on what package you book, your newborn session will take anywhere from 1-3 hours so feel free to eat a snack, take a nap or just relax and enjoy. In order to keep your newborn happy and sleepy, we typically keep the studio around 85 degrees so I recommend wearing light layers that can be removed easily if you get warm.
After the session, I will post a sneak peek within 24 hours of your session on my social media account. After that, it takes about 2-4 weeks for delivery of your final images. You will receive them via email, make your selections and download the full resolution files right from my website. From there, you are welcomed to order from your own desired print lab or via our website (recommended).
PREP TIPS & PLANNING
SOME EXTRAS YOU MAY NEED FOR YOUR SESSION
Your little one will most likely need to eat during the session. If you are breast feeding, you are welcomed to do so in the studio. If you would feel more pumping beforehand or nursing in private, that is okay too. If your baby is on formula, please be sure to bring 2-3 extra servings just in case. I will send you a prep sheet 1-2 days before hand that will give you information on how to get your little baby ready for the session so that he or she is nice and sleepy. No need to bring any props, we will supply everything you need!
- Milk or Formula
- Burp Clothes
- Nipple Cover or Bottle
I started doing photography because I have very few photos of myself when I was a small child and absolutely zero photos of my mother when she was pregnant with me. Since then, I’ve made it my mission to work with families to capture their legacy for future generations. I have photographed over 200 families and loved every second of it. As your photographer, it is my job to capture your family as they are now and freeze these fleeting moments.

FAMILIES & CHILDREN
Cake smashes can take place in-studio or on-location; however, we recommend coming to our studio as we have indoor and outdoor capabilities. We will supply custom decorations for your desired theme or color palette. The only things you are responsible for bringing are a cake, outfits for your child, balloons if you want them included and your beautiful one year old!
Ever since my own wedding, I have had a love for capturing couples on their special day. The raw emotion and genuine happiness at a wedding is so special and it truly gives me all the feels. As your photographer, it is my job to capture your every aspect of your day so that you are able to look back many years from now and still feel all of those same emotions that you had that day.
