Photography session pricing, booking and packages

The Experience

All sessions are relaxed and informal. My goal is to capture your children and family as naturally as possible, enjoying life and each other. 

Child and Family Sessions: Your photography session can be scheduled at your home or on location in an area such as a nearby park. Ideally it will be somewhere meaningful to your family where you can relax and be yourselves. Sometimes people don't give their own backyards enough credit! I also have some local favorites if you need suggestions. Weather permitting, outdoor sessions provide the best lighting in the morning and the early evening 1-2 hours before sunset. Expect the session to last between one to two hours total. Choice of different outfits/props is up to you, but we can discuss options in the consult before your session. If you decide to have the session inside your home, natural light will be used as much as possible. Indoor sessions can be booked anytime during the day. A variety of candid and posed pictures will be taken to capture your family's personality.

Newborn Session: A newborn session takes place in your home and usually lasts between one and two hours, with time for clothes changes and feedings. Weather permitting, outdoor pictures can be done if you choose. The best time to take newborn photographs is in the first 10 days of life, when he or she is still very sleepy. This is the easiest time to position the baby for those sweet poses and expressions. This session fee includes photographs of the baby as well as other children and Mom and Dad if you choose. If you are interested in a newborn session, please contact me prior to the birth of your baby so a tentative session window can be scheduled.
