My lifestyle sessions take place in the comfort of your home. The session will take place in the master bedroom and/or the baby's nursery. Lifestyle sessions do not include studio-style poses. Instead, baby is held in parent's arms, or placed on bed or in crib. This session is perfect for parents who have beautiful, natural light in their home and want a more relaxed session.

I will create an online contract for you to review, and when you’re ready you can book your session by signing your agreement and paying your Session Fee online.
During the pre-planning stage, I'll want to get a clear vision of the artwork and heirlooms you're looking to create for your home and your family's legacy. We'll then get to work on planning your outfits and the color palette we'll be using for styling the newborn session.
You'll receive my newborn planning guide with lots of tips to help you prepare for the session.
My custom photography approach ensures a session that is tailored to you as well as the goals of the session.

Once your images are ready for viewing, we'll will create a pre-design of your album and mockups of your artwork based on what we've discussed during the pre-planning session. You’ll schedule a Reveal and Ordering Appointment to view the images, customize your album, and help you select your wall art. You'll also be able to place your order for birth announcements and gift prints.
This is the most fun part of the experience!
Once your artwork has arrived, we'll schedule your delivery and installation and you'll have tangible memories of this fleeting time.
Newborn sessions take place within the first 2-3 weeks of birth while your baby is still in the adorable sleepy and curly stage that you see in my newborn images. For this reason, it's important to book your session 2-3 months before your due date in order to reserve a spot during the recommended timeframe. I occasionally have last-minute openings so if your baby is already here, don't be afraid to reach out to see if I can still accommodate you.
All collections include a Reveal & Ordering appointment so that you can see your images and help you with your album design and wall art collections, too. We specialize in creating the cherished heirlooms you will pass onto future generations some day and can't wait to create something unique for you!
All collections include archival files of purchased images (sized for printing 8x10 or smaller). Orders for larger prints and canvases are placed during your Reveal & Ordering appointment.
