My newborn, family, and documentary portrait sessions are customized and unique. I strive to make all of my sessions as carefree and relaxed as possible, while capturing a variety of posed and candid portraits. I'm always careful to keep a keen eye out for those special, one-of-a-kind moments, while making the session both fun and memorable. I love getting to know each family on a personal level so that I can create a work of art that truly reflects who you are.

The first few weeks of your baby's life will pass by in a blur! A newborn portrait session is the best way to preserve those special moments, and an investment you'll be glad you made. Newborn portraits are ideally captured within the first 14 days of life, when your baby will be sleeping deeply enough to capture those precious newborn poses. I know how hectic those first few weeks can be, so I do in-home newborn sessions. I will bring everything needed to take those “classic” newborn portraits right to your home, including special props and lighting.
Family portrait photography is a wonderful way to capture your family's love and your child's individual personality. I tend not to take so many "posed" photos, but rather allow the children to relax and be themselves. I find that this makes for the best and most memorable photographs and ultimately the ones that become your most cherished.
Documentary Family Photography is unscripted, non-directed photography of your everyday life. The photographs taken create an irreplaceable time capsule that enables you to hold onto this moment in your family's life exactly as it is, forever. Like a fly on the wall, I capture your family as it REALLY is, including the messy faces, the crying, the laughing, and even the fighting. The idea of this type of session is to capture the feeling of this special time in your lives, so I don't interfere in what's going on around me, I simply document it. Sessions last approximately 4 hours, but if you desire a longer session that can be discussed as well.
