Motherhood

Experience

Step One: Expecting

Inquire with me to give me your due date and I'll add it to my calendar. Maternity photos are typically done in your third trimester around 34 weeks. We can do something fancy or something casual at home, whatever you want. Then, after baby arrives and you're settling at home, we will schedule a time, ideally within the first two weeks, for an in-home session.

Step Two: Babyyyyyyyy

I'll come to your house and bring you coffee and photograph your new family. Don't worry about any “mess”. I know exactly what those first few weeks are like. Read: chaos. Usually the nursery and living room are the best spots for your fam. I'll give you gentle guidance and easy posing to capture everyone at their best. If you have older kiddos, please know that they are most likely going to be wild and I love it.

Step Three: The After

That same day I'll send over a sneak peek so you can share your cute baby with everyone you know (and even random strangers at the grocery store). You'll have the final gallery within six weeks of your session, but usually a lot sooner than that.

Frequently asked questions

How long will it take to get our photos?

All images are delivered you on a high-res online galleries within 6 weeks. You have access to print through the gallery or you can download your images and print wherever you choose.

Am I welcome here?

You better believe I celebrate all people. Every race or ethnicity. Every religion (or non-religion). Every gender. Every sexual identity/orientation. All are welcome here. Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable.

I'm so awkward in front of the camera, is that okay?

Would you believe me if I said a majority of my couples worry about this? Don't worry, I don't expect you to be a professional model…until I'm done with you LOL! Being in front of a camera is something so vulnerable, and I promise to never make you feel like someone you’re not. You can expect prompted and guided posing to help you connect and look your best!

Do you have a studio?

I do not own a studio (yet!) but there are studios available all over the city if that's something you're interested in. HMU and we can book one!

How many edited pictures will we be getting from you?

From a 45 minute session, you will get about 60-100 edited images delivered within 6 weeks. Every session is different, so this isn't a guarantee, just an average.

Help! What should I wear?

Colors that always look good: neutrals and jewel tones. Most importantly, choose an outfit that you love and love yourself in. I promise you don't want to be pulling or tugging at your clothes. Here's a pinterest inspo board to help get your wheels turning. https://pin.it/7jJxmZ4

"captured the joy"

How does she take us at our messiest and make it look like art? It's seriously magic. We were a disaster this morning. We weren't ready, everyone was tired and yet she still captured the joy that we feel about Max joining our family. I will treasure these and the season they captured forever.

"remember this season"

My experience has been INCREDIBLE! She has a unique way of making us feel so comfortable when we are a family of people who aren't comfortable taking photos. She has captured so many of the most important moments and transitions of my life. I'm so grateful to know that when the crazy days of toddlerhood are past, we will have the photos she took to remember this season and treasure. I can't imagine choosing anyone else. I can still remember my first phone call with her about possibly doing our wedding. I knew I would be getting a great photographer but I didn't realize l'd be getting a great friend too!
