When my daughter was born, a friend told me that the days are long, but the years are short. I have found that to be so true. I blink and my kids are bigger, smarter, doing new things and amazing me in new ways. I snap photos of them as quick as I can before they're on to the next thing, but often wish I were in the photos with them. I know my kids will have no shortage of images of their childhood. But Mom + Dad need to be in the picture, too!
Family photography is a gift. The moment you take a photo, you are documenting a moment in time that you can never get back. Time flies, children grow, family changes and before we know it, we're asking "Where did the time go?"
And when that time has passed, how will we show our children, and their children, the things that mattered to us, the moments that took our breath away or changed the course of our lives?
Show your kids and grandkids that you were there. Show them how you loved. Show them the places you lived and loved and the weird clothes you wore. The way you made pancakes on Saturday mornings and had special summer trips to the beach. How you'd spend an extra few minutes in bed just to snuggle and read one more story together.
I promise it is worth it.
NEWBORN SESSIONS $500
These photos are taken in the first 10-14 days after your baby is born, in the comfort of your home. Make a cup of coffee, relax on the couch, maybe take a snooze. I provide an assortment of light, neutral blankets, wraps and outfits, and we'll incorporate any special outfits or blankets that you'd like. Newborn photography includes 3 hours of photography to allow for soothing, feeding, and changing, an online gallery of viewing and sharing your photos, one 8x10 print and two 5x7 prints.
THE BABY BUNDLE $1200
This package includes maternity, newborn and a first year session that can be booked anytime once baby is sitting to first birthday. Each session includes an online gallery of viewing and sharing your photos, one 8x10 print and two 5x7 prints. See above for individual session inclusions.
BEAUTIFUL LIFE SESSIONS $750
These sessions are a fun and candid way to capture family time and what that means to you. It can be as simple as a few hours spent at home playing games, cooking pancakes, going through a typical day for your family, or it can be a bit more planned, like an adventure to the beach, hiking, a trip to the aquarium or your favorite local ice cream shop. These sessions are a minimum of two hours of photography, and include a set of 4x6 prints and an online gallery for viewing and sharing your photos.
HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR/LIFESTYLE PORTRAITS $350
It's time to say "peace out" to high school in style with a unique session that showcases your personality, accomplishments and style, or add some fresh lifestyle portraits to your personal photo collection - perfect to use as a blogger, entrepreneur, or actor. You choose the location (or I can help with suggestions) and can have two wardrobe looks. Includes 1 hour of photography, an online gallery for viewing and sharing your photos, and a full set of 4x6 printed proofs.
