Session Details

The session will take place in the comfort of your home and will probably last three to four hours to allow the time to attend to your newborn’s needs ( feeding, changing etc ). I will bring everything that’s necessary for the session .Once you book your newborn session, I will provide you with tips on how to best prepare for your session. I encourage you to reserve your newborn session prior to your baby’s birth. Once your baby arrives, we can set the exact date and time of the session. It is best to have a newborn session done within 4-10 days of baby’s life – that is when they are at their sleepiest and can be easily posed. . I am a mother of two small boys, and I know how tired you are going to be! Do not worry about the tidiness of your home. I am not there to take pictures of how clean your house is, I am there to capture your precious newborn. Just take this time to relax and let me do the work.
Just had a baby and didn’t know to reserve your session ahead of time? Simply contact me as soon as possible so we can see how we can fit your session into my schedule.


Baby sessions are typically done between 6 months and 12 months of age. Before 6 month of age babies are not sitting yet and posing options are very limited.
Most babies 6-9 months old can sit up unassisted and are at the perfect age for chubby, smiley, happy, sitting baby photos. Babies 10-12 Months old are generally at the age where they can stand or even cruise. When babies can stand, even just by holding onto a hand or furniture, they are engaging and excited, yet still manageable because they aren’t too mobile yet. Baby sessions may be done in your home, or at the outdoor location of your choice. In-home sessions are limited to babies who are not yet walking, and are offered year round. Outdoor sessions are offered in the warmer months (April through October).

Maternity sessions are perfect for documenting your growing belly and growing family Usually done after 30 weeks of pregnancy ( best 30-34 weeks ) – when your belly is nice and round but you still feel fairly comfortable. I want you to feel beautiful and capture your natural pregnancy glow. You may opt to do your maternity session in your home, or at the outdoor location of your choice. If you are unsure which location would work best for you, I would be happy to discuss your options and make a recommendation. Maternity sessions typically last between 45-60 min and can be done as a regular portrait session or as an add-on to a newborn session.

We can do children only or whole family session, whichever you prefer. I will give your child and your family the individual attention that you deserve to create beautiful portraits that you will love for years to come. My goal is for you to have fun, relaxed and stress-free session. I know how hard it may seem with small children: children are curious, spontaneous, silly, energetic and unpredictable. During a session children in fact are encouraged to run around and play, while I focus on capturing natural, genuine expressions and authentic connections between your family.
