The goal for each newborn session is to create images you will be proud to display in your home.  To do this, I need to get to know you! Tell me about your family and the little one you're expecting.

After our initial phone call you'll visit the studio for a complimentary consultation. Let's chat about your nursery theme and the overall style of your home.  Then, have a look at all the props, outfits, and accessories available and pick a few of your favorites.  Discussing these details allows me to customize your session so that it suites your style and matches your decor.  

  • In Studio

Should occur within two weeks of birth.  Perfectly styled to fit in with the decor of your home, these images create beautiful wall displays.  Multiple poses make this session run about 2 hours.

  • In Home

Can occur any time however, if we are bringing the studio to you for a posed newborn session, it should occur within two weeks of birth.  Lifestyle sessions, on the other hand, can be held anytime as they capture the emotion of the moment with very little posing.

About two weeks after your newborn's session we will meet up again for your Gallery Reveal and Ordering Session.  I'll show you all the best shots in a beautiful slide-show (watch Kayleigh's reveal below) and then we'll pick out your favorites and place your order.  You'll receive a copy of the slideshow, along with digital copies of all your images in an app for your phone.
