These are your memories. This is your story. Let's capture it.
I want to make our time together an unforgettable experience. I'll guide you and allow for the most flattering, natural moments. I am constantly seeking the best light and simple backdrops.
She has the patience of a saint, even with a misbehaving two year old and a fussy newborn. Her diligence and thoughtfulness is evident in each picture!
She was patient and worked well with our two littles. We will treasure these photos!
She made what could be have been a stressful newborn photo shoot into the most lovely and comfortable experience.
Newborn sessions generally include entire family, each parent with newborn, individual newborn portraits and if there are siblings or pets we can always do individuals with them and the baby as well based on comfort level.
Newborn sessions are a full two hours. This time includes set up, testing light, wrapping baby, and if we need to pause at any time to feed or calm baby this can be done as well.
I let babies set the tone for the session. Their comfort level is always my first priority.
Maternity Sessions are photographed from 30-35 weeks of pregnancy. I often suggest booking after your first trimester. I offer a variety of maternity gowns and dresses for your use.
Newborn sessions are best photographed between 5-15 days after birth. If your baby was premature, this can be adjusted to their expected due date or comfort level of the parents. A sleepy baby often lends itself to the best photographs. I bring a variety of swaddles and props with me to your session. If you'd like to borrow a dress from the client wardrobe, please let me know. I have a variety of sizes and styles based on your postpartum needs.
YES! I rent from three different studios in the CLT/LKN area. All vary in style/set up based on your wants and needs.
Many times for 6 month milestone session and first birthday/cake smash milestone sessions studio set up is a great option.
Studio set up can also be great for maternity or newborn session if you prefer as well
For any given portrait session, I will photograph upwards of about 600 raw images. Some are just testing the light, other blurry and then some you would not appreciate receiving. I deliver you the BEST of the BEST photographs for your full gallery. Generally full portrait sessions include at least 50 photographs to about 75 on average. I do not deliver RAW photographs. They are all high resolution JPEG through an online password protected gallery.
I love to travel! Yes, I travel to the mountains, beach, and many areas of NC for family sessions. Please inquire about your location.
Often times if we can coordinate based on being in that location for a wedding, there is no travel fee.
If its outside of those times, please note a travel fee is added to your session.
YAY! I'm so glad you think we are a great fit and you like my style. I cannot wait to meet you! If you fill out the inquiry form, I will get back to your within 24 hours with more information. I will follow up with a phone call to ensure we are a great fit and get to planning!
