01. The services

Every session is planned around the vision for your dream session. Once you decide to book, we will plan a date and time. All sessions are timed around sunrise or sunset for the optimal lighting from the sun... it helps with the magic! Then you need to plan your outfits for the shoot. Good clothing choices can make or break a photoshoot. Wardrobe, like location, should be well thought out as it strongly impacts the feel of your images. It will take two to three weeks to prepare your images for your password protected online gallery. I will contact you as soon as your gallery is ready for viewing.

YOUR LOVE IS TIMEleSS. LET'S MAKE IT LAST FOREVER. 

Whether it's an an engagement or an anniversary, the devil is in the details. Engagement and couple photography is one of my favorite types of session. I love being able to capture the love a couple shares for one another. I am happy to capture a special moment for love birds at any point in time. The goal is to capture the love you have for each other like it's straight out of a romance novel.

RECLAMATION

Mothers are flowers in the garden of life.

It is a rare and magical time to be able to photograph a pregnancy in a woman's life. And tho she may not always feel her best, I love capturing her glow so she feels her most radiant. The ideal time for maternity portraits are between 32 – 36 weeks, and as a woman, I understand the importance of feeling comfortable and beautiful during this special time in your life, and I make this my first priority during the session.

Little fingers, tiny toes, the sweetest of smiles, and a cute little nose. 

I would be honored to be a part of this special time in your life, and would gladly document it for you. Ideal time is between 5 - 10 days old. This will be a very busy time for you, so I prefer that I am contacted before the birth of the child. This will give you one less thing to worry about, and insure that I leave the time open for the session. Once the baby is born, it will give you a week or two to firm up the session details with me.

THERE'S NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN GREAT LIGHT and a loving family. 

Sessions are usually in the morning or evening, last anywhere from 1 - 3 hours, and are casual. It's my intention to put everyone at ease, be spontaneous, and have fun. I leave plenty of time for wardrobe switches, diaper changes, snacks, and breaks. I also love to incorporate props to add to the fun of the memory you want me to capture for you.
