A photo remembers the little things,
long after you have forgotten everything
You've spent 40 weeks growing this tiny human (that's 280 days, or 6720 hours, or 403,200 minutes, waiting to meet them!). And once you do, you realize that they're only this small and squishy for such a short time (I know, it's really NOT fair!).
So while I can't offer cryogenically freezing them as a newborn forever, what I can offer is the preservation of what they looked like in those first few weeks.
Then I turn those images into beautiful, unique heirloom pieces (which I've curated from professional print labs around the globe) so they don't end up lost on your hard-drive or in the shuffle of your Facebook memories, but rather as tangible, meaningful works of art that will give you all the feels, even as you watch them start their own lives decades later (and ask yourself how it all happened so fast!). Don't worry, all artwork will come with the corresponding digital file, because I know we live in a world where we want to share everything!
Baby's portraits are done on my Paloma Schell backdrop stand, with a variety of poses on backdrop colors of your choice (with matching swaddle for wrapped poses, and sweet stuffies or headbands in those tushy-up, naked poses that show off baby's fresh skin and wrinkles.
Family portraits are done with baby in-hands and include a variety of baby/family, baby/mom, baby/dad, and baby/sibling combinations.
I've done everything from Harry Potter to Star Wars. During our conversation at your consultation, we'll discuss any special requests, favorite football teams, intense hobbies your husband has... anything that might make your Creative Setups uniquely yours.
This style also includes baby-in-basket, baby-in-bucket, baby-in-whatever catches your eye in my Prop Collection! (Don't worry, I've been trained in posing safety and have props to assist me in doing so.)
Does the idea of packing up baby and all her stuff and heading out just a few days after getting home from the hospital to go to a photo studio seem unheard of to you? Girl, I get it, which is exactly why I offer in-home newborn sessions. I'll be the one packing my stuff to "bring the studio to you", offering the full creative session for you, without even having to leave your house (additional fee of $200).
Want a more natural, candid look? Ask about the Lifestyle Newborn session, which starts at $700 and includes your session & heirloom Baby Book, with corresponding digital files.
"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever."

Because these photos are truly once-in-a-lifetime, it's important that they're absolutely perfect. What does that mean to you? Do they include the whole family? Are they done in the convenience of your own home? Your experience begins with a consultation, where we get to know each other and discuss your session (including a tour of the studio, props, wraps, and everything I have to create top-notch images of your baby), as well as how to prepare for your session. After our meeting, I will customize your setups based on your preferences and have them ready to go when you arrive for your session. The Creative Fee also includes the session itself, which lasts approx 2-3 hours, as well as your Reveal Session, where images will be viewed and selected for customized purchase.
