Storytelling Newborn Sessions
You can’t remember the last time you slept for more than 4 hours and that may or may not be baby puke in your hair. I get it. Totally. I want you to know that I have walked in your slippers and I am here to make your life easier! No rush in the ideal time to have your session take place; I like to give everyone time to settle in after the flurry of the first few weeks. Your family will have had a chance to find out how this little one is making his or her own space in your home and hearts. First rule: Relax. No one has to have matching outfits or even their hair combed. (Kudos to those moms who can pull that off after just having a baby. I was not one of them.) My focus is on capturing the genuine...the way you interact with that new little person...and how he or she is responding to you. My sessions are a glimpse into your new daily life. We will also do some lightly posed photos – but no crazy props. I promise not to look at your sink full of dishes. I’m there to reflect this incredible time in photographs. For one mom, from another. Not your first baby? These sessions are especially great for families who already have kids. We’ll get a chance to show how everyone in your home is falling in love with this baby. And yes, I know that it’s not love‐at‐first‐scream for all siblings, but that’s a story to tell, too! As an added bonus, you will be doing a preemptive strike on the age‐old question, “Why aren’t there any baby photos of me?!”
My newborn sessions are $425
Your Wedding Session
At the grocery store. In front of a Gatorade display. That’s where I met my hubby… true love, aisle 8! It is a privilege to photograph weddings. I get to witness the smiles, happy tears, and maybe even your great aunt's super awesome dance moves! My documentary style of photography is perfect for all of those candid moments, as well as favorite traditional shots. Everyone will tell you how quickly the big day flies by. My photos will show you how much love surrounded you on the big day. Let’s talk about your true-love story.
Full day wedding coverage begins at $2800.

Family Lifestyle or Documentary Photography
When was the last time you said “family photos” and “a fun time” in the same sentence? Well, my photography takes a different focus – so your session is actually fun! (It’s true!) We can choose a location or activity that makes your family comfortable. I want to find those candid, authentic moments that show how you interact as a family. That could mean we head to a park for an impromptu football game or maybe we collect shells at the beach. I’m open to whatever appeals to your family. No tears, no holding smiles or standing still for too long. Years from now, as you wonder how time passes so quickly, I want you to look through your photos and feel like you are right back in those moments. And I want you to remember what a great (and fun!) time you had that day.
Family Sessions are $425
Adoption is a beautiful way to build a family! Whether you're beginning your adoption journey or eagerly anticipating meeting the newest member of your family soon, I would LOVE to work with you to tell your story!
Stress! My friends who have gone through the adoption process have filled me in on how stressful this step can be. You want to share with birth moms details about your life and especially all the love you have to share with a child. It’s hard to get that all in words! Let my photos help tell your unique story. We can set up a session where you can relax and let your personalities shine through. Together we will create a sweet, authentic view into your family…which is soon to be bigger!
I am happy (so happy!) to document any part of your adoption journey. At the hospital, hours after your new baby is born? You bet. Introducing baby to your extended family members? I’m there. When you finally get to the end of your adoption journey, it turns into the beginning of a whole new life. Let me focus on the photos so you can focus on all the joy. No two adoption stories are the same! Contact me and we can talk about how I can document this special time for you.
