MATERNITY

There is a bittersweet-ness to losing that belly! Carrying your precious child for months is such an amazing and unique time, and one that so many moms miss when it is over. I was so anti-pictures when I was pregnant with my daughter, and I regret it like crazy. I wish now that I had more photos of the months when she was growing and developing in my tummy. There is nothing like seeing your little one take their first breath of course, but those 9-10 months you have with them are so special. Maternity pictures help you capture this sweet time, and can be as casual or as dressed-up as you desire.

Booking: A good time to take maternity photos is between 30-34 weeks, but that is flexible. I suggest booking by your 20th week to ensure proper scheduling of your preferred dates.

Included: Pre-session consultation; 100+ individually edited images on a USB drive; online proofing gallery to view, order from, and share.

 

BIRTH STORY

I’ve talked to so many moms who say that they would go back and do the day their children were born over and over and over again. It doesn’t matter how long or strenuous or painful that day was, it was one of the best days of their life. And it’s true…you will want to live and relive every single detail. I treasure the few photos that I do have of those days in the hospital, but so wish I had more. Having a birth photographer means that you, nor your family members, have to be thinking about anything except you and that baby. Having a birth photographer means there is someone quietly capturing all those sweet little details that will soon mean everything to you.

Your birth story session will begin when you go into active labor and will last until (and after) you snuggle your baby for the first time.

Booking: Due to the nature of these sessions, it is best to book as early as possible. I am on-call for you a week before and a week after your due date. (If you go into labor earlier or later than that it doesn’t mean I won’t be there; that is just a guaranteed window to simplify scheduling.)

Included: Pre-session consultation; 100+ individually edited images on a USB drive; slideshow and online proofing gallery to view, order from, and share.

My goal while shooting birth stories is to document the emotional parts of that day. I will not typically shoot any photos that you would be uncomfortable sharing with family and friends. All privacy related questions will be addressed more thoroughly during our pre-session consultation.

 

FIRST 48

This session will take place at the hospital or birthing center within 48 hours of your little one’s arrival. My goal is to freeze for you all the little details of your first days with your new little miracle. It truly is a time like no other. There is something so peaceful about that time…the outside world fades away for a few days as you and your family get acquainted with that snuggly, sleepy bundle of joy.

Booking: I am on call for you a week before and a week after your due date, so it is best to book as early as possible. Unlike a birth story session, there is a tiny bit of flexibility, but I still suggest booking fairly early.

Included: Pre-session consultation; 100+ individually edited images on a USB drive; online proofing gallery to view, order from, and share.

 

NEWBORN

My desire for your newborn session is to simply capture a quiet morning at your home during your baby’s first days. More than likely your days center around snuggling that little one, and that’s all I want you to have to worry about doing. Next to meeting them, having your sweet baby home with you is one of the most surreal and heart-expanding times. They will change so much week to week, so the goal for newborn photos is to capture those first moments at home as a family.

Booking: It really is best to photograph your baby before they are three weeks old, so I recommend booking around 32 weeks (or earlier) to guarantee that window. Babies’ arrivals, of course, are often unpredictable, so newborn sessions can of course be rescheduled if necessary.

Included: Pre-session consultation; 200+ individually edited images on a USB drive; online proofing gallery to view, order from, and share.

 

MILESTONE

Typically taken at 6, 9, or 12 months (or any combination in between) milestone sessions are designed to preserve those special, amazing, heart-expanding changes–both in physical appearance and in personality–that take place that first year. At 6 months, you often get their first photos sitting up; 9 is a ridiculously fun time in their personality development; 12 months is, well, ONE YEAR!!! Milestone sessions are generally done in and around the home to truly and accurately capture this sweet and exciting time in baby’s life.

Booking: All clients receive a significant discount on their milestone sessions when booked concurrently with any other session above. However, they may be booked at any time that is convenient for you.

Included:Pre-session consultation, 100+ individually edited images on a USB drive; online proofing gallery to view, order from, and share.

    Hi I am due with 2nd baby on May 6 and was wondering what your newborn session rates were? I would want to include my son (4) and myself and husband in some photos as well. Also interested in possibly looking into a mini maternity session option as well. Appreciate any info you have. Thanks!ReplyCancel
