SeSSIONS

Your memories are not meant to be recorded and then stored away in a digital cloud or on a phone.  It is my mission to help you keep them alive by offering a Collection of heirloom artwork.  Fine prints, bespoke albums, gifts and finely matted and framed art are some of the ways to put the love you have for your family on display.  

Clients typically invest $1200+ in a collection and digital images.

The Signature Session & Experience encompasses all of this but I also offer a Simplicity Session & the Motherhood Collective dependent on your needs.

You should cherish every step of motherhood and I would love to be there for you to keep these moments alive.  When you choose the Signature Session and Experience, you will be guided by me through consultation, use of my studio wardrobe, a personalized gallery viewing and professional design and framing of your photographs.

The magical process
01/04

I want to make every step of your experience simple for you and custom to you and your family.

We'll start with a pre-session consultation where I will answer all of your questions - including what to wear, location ideas, best time of the day for your session, and hair and makeup recommendations. I also offer complimentary use of a beautifully curated studio wardrobe for mama, babies and littles.  

Hey Mama!
Let's start with a chat...

Organic, ethereal, natural, classic, timeless, light and airy.  These are the words that describe  the style of images you will  get from me.  But we must choose the perfect backdrop!
With my experience and knowledge of the area, I can help you choose the best setting and time for your session.  We can capture your memories at the beach, in a field or in your home.  

location, location, location

03/04

This is where the magic happens! 

We'll meet on our allotted day and time at your chosen location.  I'll guide you through the session so that you  don't need to worry about getting the "right" shots.  You and your family can just relax and enjoy the moment.  In fact, I often use a "child-led" technique so that your precious ones are the true stars of the show.  

let's have fun!

04/04

Once your images are ready, we will schedule a personalized viewing and ordering appointment of 30+ gorgeous hand-edited image proofs. You will have access to your own online preview gallery for 24 hours prior to our appointment.  

In addition to any digital files included in your session, you will be able to invest in high-quality prints and heirloom artwork. The Collection choices include additional digital files, custom matted and framed fine art cotton prints, bespoke handcrafted linen albums, custom paper birth announcements and greeting cards. I even offer in-home design and hanging services to take the daunting task off your hands!

From the time that you place your order and make your payment in full, it can take anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks for your order to be delivered to you depending on the heirloom collection and/or artwork that you choose. Please allow for an extra cushion around holidays.

HOW LONG does it take to receive my order?

Most sessions last about one hour; however, I don't rush though your session since creativity and children can't be pushed. Newborn sessions can take 2+ hours.
*The Simplicity Session is a 30 minute mini-session.


HOW LONG DOES A
SESSION TAKE?

Make sure you and your little ones are fed and well rested before your photo session. I understand that families are busy; however, it is useful to not have things scheduled on the day of your session and even the night before.
Tired and over-stimulated children appear that way in their photographs. On the day of your session appointment, it is best to only bring the persons being photographed to prevent distractions. Kids can really pick up on our stress levels, so it's important to relax and have fun!

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR OUR SESSION?

Clothing is an important part of creating a beautiful image and of highlighting the emotion between you and your loves.   My style is natural and organic, and meant to capture the connections that you have with one another.  Subtle colors such as pastels, whites, creams, grays and other neutrals unify the look of your family, helping to bring the emphasis on the emotion and not the clothes.  Signature Session and Motherhood Collective clients , receive the benefit of borrowing from my specially curated studio wardrobe of high-end dresses and gowns and baby and children's clothes.   Babies are most beautiful showing off their pure and perfect skin, especially newborns, by dressing them in organic cottons and natural fabrics.  Bare feet are always cute and natural for everyone.   
Visit our Pinterest inspiration board for more ideas and look out for the How to Prepare for Your Session Guide in your welcome package sent to you after your session is reserved.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR SESSION?

No digital files are  included with the Signature Session or the Motherhood Collective. 
Digital Files can be purchased once you have viewed your Gallery. 
 *The Simplicity Session includes 10 Digital Files for download with print release.

ARE THE DIGITAL FILES INCLUDED IN THE SESSION FEE?

The Motherhood Collective is the best way to ensure that you do not miss any of the milestone moments of your child's first year.  Four full sessions are included (see The Signature Session) over the course of 18 months.  You choose when the sessions will take place.  Many mothers choose to following sessions: 1. Maternity 2. Newborn 3. Sitter/Crawler (6-9 mos) 4. One-Year Birthday.  However, you can choose to use the sessions however you wish!  You will also receive a printed fine art collage with photos from all 4 sessions at the end of your Collective sessions.
There is a significant savings when you choose the Motherhood Collective.
