The Experience

A Stress Free Experience

It is important to me as your photographer to create a portrait experience that you will enjoy and remember. From our first phone call to the delivery of your portraits, it is my desire that you will find the experience to be stress-free and know what to expect at every stage of our time together.


You will be invited to the studio for an optional pre-portrait design appointment, where we will dream up your portrait session, try on some sweet dresses from the client closet to round up your session, and answer all questions you have. Newborn session clients also receive a digital newborn session guide to prepare for their session.


The Session

Parents are always welcomed to join the session. I will encourage you to tickle your baby, play games with them, and sometimes telling each other sweet or secret things. These interactions make for the best and most natural smiles. My sessions usually last about an hour and two to three hours for newborn sessions. Your full session receives my full attention for the day, I will have no other photography session scheduled on your session day.

Heirloom Ordering

… because your portraits shouldn’t just live on a USB in a drawer… 

I believe it is important to display portraits in the home and pass them down through generations. Professional fine art photo paper can last a hundred or more years and digital files can easily corrupt. I offer both, Heirloom artwork so you can enjoy your memories displayed in your home for years to come AND digital files to share them with friends and family on social media and for archiving.

After your session, we will meet again to select your favorites, and I’ll guide you on the perfect way to enjoy them in your home. We remove all the guess work and extra time it takes figuring out what looks best, finding the perfect frames, and designing one-of-a-kind albums. I take pride in delivering high quality, professional portrait products to my clients.
