I believe this process is a true collaboration between you and/or your family and me. The art of making a beautiful photograph is not just about the person behind the camera…it is very much about what is in front of it too. I strive to create works of art that speak directly to you and what you want to hang on the your walls of your home or find on the pages between the covers of a gorgeous book. These photographs will tell the story of you, of who you are today, and will live in your home to remind you of these moments for years to come.

In order to create this type of work I offer several  session options, all which include a pre-session consultation either in person or by phone, the photographic session, post session processing and preparation of your images, and a private viewing and ordering appointment. All four steps are crucial to ensuring that our experience together grants you the everlasting images you are envisioning.

The session fee will formally secure our time together and is due at the time of booking. This will cover the pre-session consultation either in person or by phone, the photographic session, post session processing and preparation of your images, and a private viewing and ordering appointment. It does not include any prints or products.  I offer multiple print collections to best fit your vision or you can purchase a la carte.  All homes are different and we each have our own styles, therefore I offer various printing options such as wall portraits on paper, canvas, or metals, heirloom albums, and digital files along with multiple framing and mounting styles and materials.

Together we will forge images and artifacts that will be cherished and preserved for generations.

Those first few days of your baby’s life hold some of the most amazing enjoyment you will ever feel.  The tiny toes, soft fuzzy hairs, curly little bodies,  bright wide eyes, perfectly long eyelashes….they are gone before you know it. A newborn session will capture these moments and allow you to never forget just how magical these days are.
I will travel to and work with you in the comfort of your own home. Typical sessions are about three hours and will provide a minimum of 25 photographs. I offer two styles, portrait and lifestyle. For a full description of the these two styles please see the tabs below.

Newborn Portrait sessions take place in the comfort of your own home. This is the type of session you will want if you are looking for the newborn photos of sleeping, curly babies posed in the cutest of ways. I will bring everything we need to set up the session which will include all the photographic gear, lighting, backdrops, etc. I will also provide all the props, blankets, wraps, hats, outfits, headbands, and accessories that we will need. However, if you have some that you would like to use I would love that too! The more personalized the better. This type of session takes more time than the lifestyle session due to the time it takes to set up, soothe and pose the baby.  It will be a minimum of three hours. After the baby portraits are finished we will also do posed photos of the parents and the baby.  You will have a minimum of 25 images with this session. Scroll through the photographs below to give you a clear idea of what this type of session will look like.

Please schedule for the first two weeks of your baby’s life. Their bodies are still very flexible and accustomed to curling up into those adorable positions and they tend to sleep deeper during these early days. That being said, I have worked with babies in their third and forth weeks and have had much success in creating beautiful images with them.

The lifestyle session is more of a documentary style shoot. I will come to your home and take photos of you and your family living your life. You will get pictures of everyday things you do with your baby shown in an artistic detailed way. The way your tiny baby snuggles in your arms or sleeps on your chest, the perfect swaddle in your favorite blankie for nap time, tender moments shared between you and your munchkin sitting on the couch just staring at each other, loving and caring looks of respect or pride shared between you and your partner, the big sister helping  to change the diaper, the big brother shaking the rattle in hopes of getting a smile, the sudsy bubbles of tubby time, the intimate bonding of nursing.  These photos will reflect back to you remarkable moments you could easily forget as time goes on.  They also freeze your home in time. As the years go on and the nursery has been changed to a teenagers bedroom, you will have these images to return to. To see the mobile you spent hours picking out, the bookshelves you so carefully organized by color, or your little ones favorite stuffed animal, now tattered with love, in it’s pristine condition.  Typically we photograph events and milestones, we pose and smile for the camera, we remember our past through holidays or birthdays only. But this is not real life, our everyday life, and it is so easily forgotten. These sessions capture the true beauty of everyday life, the way we actually were and to me that is the most beautiful thing there is in this life.

This type of session is typically 2-3 hours.
It is possible to add on an hour of portraits for an additional cost.

These can be scheduled during the first 2-4 weeks of life. Newborns grow so fast so I recommend no older that 4 weeks, 2-3 is ideal.

I truly believe that everything starts with family. A strong, loving family can be the roots of who we become in life. Ask any parent and they will tell you just how fast time flies, how quick the toddlers grow and how soon the kids are off to college. Freezing time with a family session will help slow this down and will create memories to look back and laugh and cry with. I also believe these photographs are important in the moment, not just as a memento. I believe they contribute to that irreplaceable feeling of family and belonging, of knowing who you are and where you fit in with the people you love most. I even believe these photos can help children create a sense of self identity.

These sessions typically last two hours and will provide a minimum of 25 images.

The beach where your family has shared summer vacations for the past ten years, the park where your daughter first skinned her knee, the field where your son hit his first home run, the woods that houses your favorite hikes and trees, the charming downtown of your own childhood, the high school where you children will graduate, the art center that continually inspires your little Picasso’s, the home where you brought home your first bundle of joy.  We all have special places filled with our own unique memories, the chapters that tell the stories of our lives.

Together we will find a place meaningful to you and your family and set up our shoot there. However if we can not think of a place I am happy to pick a location for you. The photos will be both posed and unposed, but all will be within a modern portrait style of photography. Scroll through the images below to get a visual idea.

These sessions typically last two hours and will provide, at minimum, 25 images.

The lifestyle session is more of a documentary style shoot. I will come to your home and take photos of you and your family living your life. You will get pictures of everyday things you do with your family shown in an artistic detailed way. Your kids nearly burning their fingers to help you cook at the stove, the mess of the toys that reoccurs at least three times during the day, the mountain of laundry that never shrinks (ok maybe we will leave that out… or maybe not), your sons look of pride as he breezes through his math homework, your daughter celebrating scoring a goal in the makeshift soccer field in your backyard, the look of amazement on your littlest ones face as the bubbles float by, the stool they stand on to reach the sink as they brush their teeth, your look of relief because they actually are brushing their teeth, the exhausted hug shared between you and your partner.
These photos will reflect back to you remarkable moments you could easily forget as time goes on.  They also freeze your home in time. As the years go on and the home gets remodeled or sold, you will have these images to return to. To see the kids playing on your favorite rug now worn out and gone, the trees in your backyard no taller than your seven year old, now towering over the roof, or the favorite vase which you admired daily on your mantel until the day it fell and shattered.  Typically we photograph events and milestones, we pose and smile for the camera, we remember our past through holidays or birthdays only. But this is not real life, our everyday life, and it is so easily forgotten. These sessions capture the true beauty of everyday life, the way we actually were and to me that is the most beautiful thing there is in this life.

The 40 weeks of pregnancy can feel like some of the most feminine, miraculous, spiritual, and selfless times of your life. Lets be real though…it can also be some of the most foreign, emotional, painful, and sickly times too.  This brief passage of time is really quite an amazing time of your life. No matter how you are feeling, you are creating a life, growing a beautiful person inside of your body, nurturing it’s growth all day, every day. It is the only time your child will be completely and fully connected to solely you. You may feel that you are not looking your best right now and you may feel that this is not the time for portraits of yourself, but trust me, no other time could be better. In years to come you and your child will snuggle up with a glass of milk and your photo album. Instead of the regular bed time story, you will share your stories of when he or she was in your belly, what happened on the day of the birth, and the tiny little details you fell madly in love with as soon as he or she arrived. This album will be cherished again and again throughout both of your lives. Perhaps when a teenager is feeling down or when your child, now an adult, is expecting his or her own baby. This is not just a gift for yourself, it is a lifelong treasure for both you and your child.

These sessions typically last two hours and will provide 25-30 images.

The park where you will take your first stroll with your bundle of joy, the woods that houses your favorite hikes and trees, the beach that makes you feel like a kid again, the boardwalk where you had your first french fries with vinegar, the romantic restaurant where he proposed, the charming downtown of your own childhood, the high school your baby will graduate one day, the carnival that annually marks the beginning of summer, the corner of the  street where you shared your first kiss, the art center that continually inspires you, the home where you burnt your first lasagna and had to order pizza.  We all have special places filled with our own unique memories, the chapters that tell the stories of our lives.

I will travel to you, to a location of your choice, it can be anywhere. Some place meaningful to you and your  family will make the photographs even more personal.

The lifestyle session is more of a documentary style shoot. I will come to your home and take photos of you and your family living your life. You will get pictures of everyday things you do with your family shown in an artistic detailed way. You struggling to push yourself off of the couch, your partner helping you to pull on your boots, brushing your teeth with your son sitting on the counter “brushing” his too, the look of awe as your partner holds your belly as the baby moves around, sharing a bubble bath with your daughter because it is just too uncomfortable to lean over the tub anymore, going on a walk around the neighborhood and running into your local deer.
These photos will reflect back to you remarkable moments you could easily forget as time goes on.  They also freeze your home in time. As the years go on and the home gets remodeled or sold, you will have these images to return to. To see the kitchen you cooked so many dinners in before gutting it, the empty space in the living room which has now been filled with the rainbow colors of kids toys, or the desk that could actually be kept neat. Typically we photograph events and milestones, we pose and smile for the camera, we remember our past through holidays or birthdays only. But this is not real life, our everyday life, and it is so easily forgotten.

The tears of joy your mom is fighting to hide as she helps you with your veil, the feeling of your dad’s elbow locked with yours as he walks you down the aisle, the scent of the abundance of flowers decorating the day, the crackling sound of the breaking of the glass, the almost blinding sparkle of special jewelry brought all the way from India, the extra shine on his shoes, sharing just a look with your brother or sister that holds your entire life’s  story together, best friends or family members squeezing you a little tighter, hugging you a little longer, laughing a little louder, the collective sigh of joy during your first kiss, feeling his strength as you slightly stumble during your first dance. Your wedding will proceed with traditions, perhaps new and old, but your day will be filled with fleeting intimate moments that will be the most meaningful to you. I will capture and preserve these moments for you.

Wedding pricing is set as packages only.
These packages start at $3500.
