Portrait Styles

For maternity,  I want mom to feel confident and beautiful: this is your chance to give your baby a great gift. The ability to share the miraculous time of your pregnancy thru photographs. Maternity clothing needs to be form-fitting to show the form of the belly. Be sure to tell me if you want bare belly shots! The best time to take your photographs is between the 34th and 36th week when your belly is nice and round.
Undoutedly there will be hundreds of photos taken of your precious baby but there is only ONE chance for a hospital newborn portrait. This session is held at the hospital Mon-Fri between 9 am and noon. This is scheduled for your EDD.
There's no rushing a newborn session. We will follow the baby's cues. We are going to make this a relaxing environment for the baby as well as you. We'll take breaks as needed to feed the baby. We turn up the heat (even in summer) to keep the baby toasty and play heart beat sounds to lull the baby. Be sure to tell me if you want nursing photographs. It's such a special moment to capture. We suggest scheduling the newborn session for your EDD. Please reserve your session near your 34 week.
Please have any cute hats, special blankets, etc pulled out before the session, we can try to work them into the photographs. It is *very* likely that one of us will get soiled. It's no big happen's ALL the time.
The best time for a newborn session is before 2 weeks of age.
Children & Babies
This is FUN, not a chore! Please let me lead the way and ask if I need help. No need for bribes, although I'll ask if they can do something that they're not normally allowed to do. Like jumping on the bed. I will work at their level and their pace. Sometimes, we'll work one-on-one, away from the pressure of them feeling like they have to "perform" for mom and dad, so just give us space and be prepared for some great pictures.
Please bring snacks and water, but try to avoid items that are going to color or get stuck in their teeth. Also bring your child's lovie, a colorful toy or bubbles are wonderful. Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before.  

A parent must always be present during the photo session. It is your responsibility to make sure the child stays safe and that infants and babies are within arms reach  

For couples, think fun, hip, urban and romantic! I want to capture the passion and magic between you two. PDA is a must! Lets try unusual locations and use things that show off your uniqueness as a couple. Your STORY. Your PHOTOGRAPHS. Everything you feel fixed in a moment. Clothing should be fun and FLIRTY!
