All types of photography capture for life times our fleeting moments. And of all the moments to be celebrated and remembered the arrival of a new baby into your life, your family, this world…should be something you want to document artfully. When I look back at portraits of my third daughter (I don’t have pictures of my first two children), I remember. I smell her milky sweet skin and the thought of its velvety softness makes me long to hold a baby. I think back to my husband and I sitting on the couch an marveling at the cute little elfish crinkle in her ears. Pictures of her with her Dad about to leave us after just two weeks of her birth to attend for several months long Office Basic Course with the Army, make me cry. I think about the the beautiful close ups of her soft lips and I want to go back and kiss them. These pictures of her are priceless!
If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle. – Vincent van Gogh
I require a $150 booking fee up front to schedule your session.
Newborn Package $650
This package is for newborn and parents only. Siblings are welcome to join if arrangements are made to bring towards the end of the session. My newborn sessions last about 3 hours. Those hours are spent celebrating, soothing, comforting and feeding your new baby as we work to perfectly pose her for every shot. I edit and retouch 35-40 images looking to make sure every detail is looked over.
My newborn package is designed to provide you with a complete experience I have trained with several of the top newborn photographers in the country. I start with creating beautiful portraits of your newborn that are classic and timeless. Then I move on to posing your baby in some of my hand picked props. These props are selected with a criteria in place to insure that they are safe, comfortable for your infant and will not draw attention away from your baby. They help me to create stunning art pieces for you to hang in your home. Finally I photograph your baby with you. These portraits are sure to tug on your heart strings for years to come as you are brought back to those magical first moments you had with your infant. I have the training and skills to make sure you look your best so that you will be proud to hang your portraits in your home for all to see.
