Capturing you and your most special people in this current place of life is a true honor. It’s not lost on me how quickly time moves and life changes. We can never get more time in a day or year but photographs are one way we can freeze time, together, to remember how things were. Family, Maternity & Newborn portrait sessions are the perfect opportunity to do this.

Beautiful & authentic moments captured and treasured for years to come

Maternity & Newborn Sessions

Your session will take place during golden hour because this time of day offers the best lighting. On a good weather day golden hour occurs 90-60 minutes before sunset. You also have the option to choose a sunrise session if that works better for you and your family. Sunrise sessions start 15 minutes after the scheduled sunrise. Newborn sessions take place in the morning right after the baby's last feeding. Due to my scheduling availability sessions are held on weekdays only.

You will be granted rights to download and print your edited images from your gallery as you like however the ownership rights of the images remain with me, which is standard procedure in terms of creative intellectual property.

Within your image gallery you will have the opportunity to order professional prints, holiday cards, canvases and even albums. Ex. 5x7 Print $5.00 and 16x20 Wall Canvas $107.50.

I love dogs! If you would like to include your furry friend in your portrait session I suggest arranging to have a friend come along to entertain your pup when they are not being photographed. This will help you stay at ease and enjoy your session.

The beach offers a perfect location for your portrait session and there are a few other local locations that are available and don’t require special permission or permits. If you have a location in mind please let me know!!

Your images will typically be delivered around 3 weeks after your session date. A usual gallery delivered includes approximately 80-100 images.

Inquire with me

To ensure that I am able to provide you the absolute best experience as a client, I only accept a limited number of portrait sessions each month. If you’re considering a session don’t hesitate to reach out now so we can get you on my calendar!
