For the first five years I spent photographing families in all seasons of life, I only offered digital files, and over and over again I watched families rave about their images via social media, and then do nothing with the beautiful memories they had invested in. Even I have done the same time and again, as I take dozens of pictures of my children every month. Only recently, have I been in the habit of preserving the images of my children and family life in tangible ways.
Holding photographs in your hands is poignant. An image on a screen does not convey the same significance & emotion as one you hold in your hands, or view hanging on the walls of your family home. It is important to me as an artist & mother that you have more to remember of your session than a small blue folder on your hard drive.
Each lifestyle session includes a lovely little package with a flash drive of your digital images, a custom made luxurious softcover photo book with words & images that convey your story, and a handful of 5×7 bordered prints so you can share your images immediately with eager family and friends. I hope that when your package arrives at your door step it will bring you great joy – I whole heartedly believe it will.
I’d also love to meet face to face with you to plan which prints to frame, and where to put them in your home. I love helping clients choose their favorite images, and which way of displaying suits their style best. If you make the tea, this little get together is complimentary with your session.
Birth photography – $600
Fewer things get me more excited than birth. I would love to be a fly on a wall to document this miraculous process for you. I am currently building my birth photography portfolio, and am offering this service at a discounted rate.
Photographing this miraculous event is something that makes my heart sing.
The session includes a combination of color and black and white images from your birth. At this time, birth photography does not include any physical items such as prints or photo books. I am happy to create a custom package for you.
Lifestyle Newborn Sessions – $400
Lifestyle Newborn sessions are the heart of my photography. These days pass in a blink, but they shape you for a lifetime. I want to photograph the pure, untainted innocence of your newest little one in a gentle & natural way. Every detail from the wrinkled folds of skin, to the button nose, and fuzzy hair. But it’s not only about baby, and that’s why my lifestyle newborn sessions happen in your home where everyone is most comfortable. I want you hushing, soothing, rocking, nursing and doing exactly what you’ve done every day since your little one was put into your arms. No props. Just you & your baby exactly as your heart will remember these days.
