We Offer the Following Portrait Services:

Child/Family Sessions


All portrait sessions are shot on location, using natural light. I have several great locations I like to use, so I recommend reviewing my blog posts to discover the location that most appeals to you and fits your personal style. My favorite time to shoot is about 90 minutes before sunset, or in the early morning (ESPECIALLY for beach shoots). This is when the light is at it’s best for portraits. We want your kiddos happy and in good spirits, so if we’re shooting at the end of the day, it's a great idea to have them well rested and fed before our session. 

25 images will be provided in an online gallery for viewing and purchasing.


Extended Family Sessions


This session is for extended family with Grandparents, cousins, or other family members. I will capture group shots of the entire family, but will also break down into smaller family units to capture those individual relationships between Grandkids and their Grandparents, Parents with (grown) kids, etc.

Please be mindful that the time will be divided up between all the family members, and there will be lots of alternating in and out of shots to get a beautiful variety of memories. 

25 images will be provided in an online gallery for viewing and purchasing.


Newborn Session


Newborn sessions are shot in the comfort of your own home, or in my home studio. I have many props and backgrounds for your baby girl or boy. You will be able to choose items from my newborn collection, and/or we can feature those little treasures you've been eagerly waiting to place on your little one! Plan on the session lasting 2-3 hours depending on the newborn. Newborn sessions last a bit longer to allow time for diaper changing, feeding, settling a restless or crying newborn, etc. I will send you information to prepare for your newborn session upon receipt of your deposit. Newborn sessions are best when done when the baby is no more than 10 days old.

20-25 images will be provided in an online gallery for viewing and purchasing.
