Session Information

First, I’d like to tell you a little be about the session. Then we can proceed in finding a package that works for you.

In order to produce a beautiful photograph, we need good light. Therefore, wherever the light is, that is where we will take photos.

During the months of April to November, I book most of my motherhood and family sessions outdoors, about 1.5 hours after sunrise or before sunset. This way we can avoid high contrast imagery and harsh shadows. If your child is napping during that time, no worries. We can adjust the schedule to make it work for you. Just please note that locations may be limited.

In-home newborn sessions will also be booked with prime natural sunlight hours in mind. I will be able to assess your home and find the best location within it to use for the best lighting options. Please note that I NO LONGER do studio newborn session. I also do not use props (i.e. buckets, blankets, etc.) in newborn shoots. In-home sessions focus on the connection and intimacy among parents, siblings and newborns. I will take newborn portraits in the most natural way, without too much posing. 

Although I shoot both on film and digital, your final gallery will come in the form of digital images that are fully edited and high resolution with print release. I LOVE the look of film (that’s why I learned it!) and work hard to achieve it. Therefore, you will find your images to have that soft contrast, warm, pinkish tones, and to be a bit grainy. Please check out my portfolio to ensure that this is the look you want for your images. I do not release unedited images under any circumstances.
