Sessions are on-location and last about 1.5 to 2 hours (longer for newborns, to allow time for breaks and feedings). I’m very flexible with newborn sessions, which should take place during the first week and a half after baby’s birth (while they’re still sleepy and curled up!). Get in touch with me while you’re pregnant and when your baby arrives, we’ll get the session scheduled.
I love outdoor sessions with natural light–I prefer to get photos of your kids playing and being themselves, rather than of stiff poses. We can meet anywhere you’d like, or I can come to your home–I want you and your kids to feel at ease wherever we’re taking pictures. Feel free to bring props–children’s furniture, quilts, a wagon, their favorite toy–anything you can think of! If you have a concept for a particular picture, let me know and we’ll try to make it happen.
About 2 weeks after your session, you’ll be given a link to a private online gallery with the images from your session (about 25-35 images), where you can place your order. I also offer in-person ordering sessions; we can meet at an agreed location or I can come to your home if you’d like help deciding which size print or canvas is right and where to display it!
*Being a mom of two young children, I understand that some days just don’t work for taking pictures–your kids are overtired, cranky and just plain uncooperative. While I love the photos I have of my daughter’s pouts (I treasure them as much as the smiling photos!), I know that those aren’t really the pictures you want to hang on your wall. I am more than happy to give your kids a break, or better yet, let’s break out the bubbles or let them jump on the beds! If all else fails, we can certainly reschedule for another day. On that same note, if I think the weather is not going to cooperate for the kind of session we want, I will try to give you a 24-hour notice if we need to reschedule.
**I do photograph families; however, the session fee covers only the first 6 people in your family. For each additional person over 6, there is an additional $25 fee per person.
