Maternity Sessions

Expecting Moms (and Dads) just have that glow, that unmistakable twinkle in their eyes and softness in their smile that just says it all. Especially for first time parents, once they start thinking about their little one on the way, you can see that anticipation and that excitement in every look. It’s absolutely beautiful. They know their lives are about to change forever, in ways that are really impossible to imagine until they get there, but ways that will nevertheless fill them with more joy than they ever thought possible. Your maternity portrait session will take place in your home or outdoors during the end of your 7th month or beginning of your 8th month of pregnancy, that way, your belly is nice and full, without you being uncomfortable. When choosing an outfit for your maternity photos, look for clothes that will accentuate your belly. While you might find loose clothing to be more comfortable and flattering, when you look back, you will appreciate your curvy belly in all of its glory. Of course, your family is welcome to be a part of this session!

Fresh 48 Hospital Session

While a birth session may not be for everyone, a ‘Fresh 48 Hospital’ session can still capture so many amazing moments without having the intimacy of birth documented. ‘Fresh 48 Hospital’ session takes place a day or two after baby is born and typically in the hospital. It’s lifestyle, natural and a great way to include siblings and other family members getting to know the new baby. I am so passionate about ‘Fresh 48 Hospital’ sessions, because it’s all about capturing that new bond of parents with their newest family member. Your baby will be changing so fast – hour to hour, day to day. Capture those first milestones: hospital blankets & bracelets, first bath, breastfeeding, meeting siblings, family members, and the grandparents! ‘Fresh 48 Hospital’ sessions are all about embracing that short time at the hospital that will soon be lost in the fog of your “babymoon”!


Newborn sessions are a little different from a regular session in that they will last approximately 2-3 hours. Newborns are best photographed in their birthday suit! They are beautiful just as they are. Your baby will only be this tiny for a matter of days and clothes tend to add bulk and take away from how tiny they really are. I take a timeless approach when I style my images. A little headband, hat or wrap can go a long way in showcasing baby’s beauty. Don’t worry about little accidents with an un-diapered baby. I come prepared by bringing plenty of extra blankets to use while soothing and will take all the dirty laundry with me when I go. I know your washing machine is working overtime. One more important thing is milk, milk, and more milk! I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to feed the baby throughout the session. This means any and all feeding ‘schedules’ go out the window for the day. It is essential for the baby to have a full belly so that they remain sleepy enough to be moved and molded from pose to pose.

First year milestones

Never again will your baby reach more milestones than they will in their first year of life.  With all the sleepless nights and constant adjustment, it seems that time flies and the first year evaporates into a blur.  Have photographs to treasure and look back on. The best ages to capture are that smiling/grabbing onto their feet stage (around 3 months), the sitting up stage (around 6 months), the supported stander/cruising around chairs stage (around 9 months) and the 1st birthday with a smash cake session.
