Beginnings

(or just $100 when bundled with a Brand New session!)

Let's capture some special memories of the days anticipating the arrival of your new little one! Maternity portraits are usually best scheduled between 32 and 36 weeks. When you book an "Expecting" session, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone to discuss the details of your session – the location, clothing ideas and suggestions, any props we'd like to include, etc. The session will last about 30 minutes, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the location you choose. Within three weeks of your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view all the best images from our time together (typically 15+ finished images), carefully selected and retouched by me. As a bonus, orders placed during the first week will receive 10% off!

Brand New Session Add-on:  Maternity sessions are only $100 when scheduled at the same time as a "Brand New" newborn session. Mention this when you book!

(No prints, products, or files are included in the session fee beyond using your purchase credit. $80 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. $100 balance is due by the start time of your session. In situations where Maternity session is a discounted add-on to a Brand New session, $100 fee is due upon booking to secure the date on my schedule. A la carte purchases of prints, products and files available from your proofing and ordering gallery.)

There is nothing more magical than witnessing the miracle of birth. Capture the entire process of welcoming your sweet baby, through labor, delivery, and those first precious hours spent getting to know your new little one. When you book Birth Story coverage, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone or over coffee to discuss all the details – your estimated due date, where you’ll be laboring and delivering, the people who will be supporting you during labor and delivery, etc. I’ll ask for a $350 retainer to hold your place on my schedule, and I’ll pencil your EDD in on my calendar. I’ll be available on-call to you from two weeks before your EDD through two weeks after your EDD, and I won’t take on any other births or commit to any sessions that aren’t easy to reschedule should you go into labor during that four week window.

When the big day comes, you’ll get in touch with me when you’re ready for me to join you. I’ll capture images of you in labor, the arrival of your baby, and up to two hours after the birth. Within 24 hours I’ll be in touch with a few “sneak peeks” for you to share with family and friends. About four weeks after baby’s arrival, I’ll deliver a personalized USB in a gorgeous wood presentation box, loaded with all the best images from your birth story, lightly edited and retouched for visual consistency, in both full color and black & white (typically 120+ images).

“Birth Story” heirloom photo books and albums are available as add-ons to your Birth Story photography coverage starting at $300. Prints and products are available for purchase for those who are interested. Mention your interest when booking!

Maternity Sessions: a complimentary “Expecting” maternity portrait session is included in all Birth Story packages. This includes a 30 minute session and a $50 purchase credit to be used in your proofing and ordering gallery.

($300 non-refundable retainer is due upon booking. $900 balance is due within one week of baby’s birth. No images beyond sneak peeks will be delivered until full balance has been paid. Payment plans are available upon request.)

Commemorate how tiny and perfect they are in those first sweet hours before you head home to start your “new normal” of life with another sweet family member. When you book a “Fresh 48“ session, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone to discuss all the details – your estimated due date, where you’ll be delivering, etc. I’ll pencil in your EDD on my calendar, and once baby arrives you’ll get in touch to let me know the exciting news! The session will last about 30 minutes. Within three weeks of your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view all the best images from our time together (typically 15+ finished images), carefully selected and retouched by me. As a bonus, any orders placed during the first week will receive 10% off!

My approach to newborns is to capture them at home sometime during their first month of life, surrounded by those who love them most. We take baby’s lead, for some snuggly family portraits and solo portraits of baby in natural poses.

When you book a “Brand New” session, we'll also schedule a quick chat on the phone to discuss the details of your session – the location, clothing ideas and suggestions, any props we'd like to include, etc. The session will last about two hours, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and baby’s mood and level of sleepiness. Within three weeks of your session, I’ll be in touch with all the details to access your online proofing gallery where you will view all the best images from our time together (typically 20+ finished images), carefully selected and retouched by me.

As the years go by, it’s vitally important that we take the time to capture moments with our extended family. Extended family session fees are based on number of people participating.

I work pretty fast and efficiently... the session will last about an hour, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the location you choose.

Let's take your wildest dreams and make them a reality! Storyteller fine art portrait sessions are individually curated from concept to completion. We'll schedule a pre-session consultation to discuss overall vision, the perfect location, costuming/styling, and timeline. The session will last about an hour, but length of time will depend on the number of participants and the complexity of the session. About six weeks after your session, we'll schedule an image collection reveal and ordering appointment including at least 10 of the best images from our time together, carefully selected and artistically edited by me. Storyteller sessions include your choice of a 16x20 gallery wrap canvas of your favorite image or a framed 12x36” Storyboard collage featuring up to six of your favorite images from the collection. Additional a la carte items may be added on at your ordering appointment.
