is the ultimate sophistication.



I will provide you not only with high-quality, professional photos, but a pleasant overall photographic experience.  It is a priority to me to be prompt, thorough, and responsive. I will stick to my timelines and approach your session in an organized, professional manner.  I am a stickler for detail, and am meticulous about my craft.  The best compliment I can receive is your repeat business or your referral of others.  I hope that you are happy enough to do both of these.

for trusting me with your moments.

thank you

There is no need to complicate the perfection of new life, the wonder of childhood, or the connection between people who love each other.  I use primarily neutral tones and an uncluttered, classic approach.  Without the shadow of trendiness, your photos will retain their natural beauty for years to come.  I strive to capture genuine moments, the ones that will connect you to this time forever.  The best photos come with a feeling attached.

Thank you for coming prepared with your Session Fee.

My newborn style is simple and natural.  In order to keep images timeless and pure, I rarely use props beyond simple wraps and small headbands.  I rely primarily on soft neutral tones.  Please make sure that my style and your expectations are in line prior to scheduling.  Most newborn sessions last between 2-3 hours. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Session fee (listed above), is for baby only.  
Adding parent(s) and or siblings will incur an additional fee:

Milestone session are designed for one child only.  
Siblings and/or parent(s) may be added for an additional fee.

In most cases baby/child sessions occur in my studio, Mondays or Fridays between 10 am and 3 pm.  Sessions are up to one hour and include 2-3 indoor setups.  Outdoor baby/child photos are usually part of a whole-family session, or by special arrangement.  Pre-session consultation will allow us to create a beautiful representation of your little one at any or all of these milestone ages.   

milestone sessions:  
sitting (6-7 months) 
birthday (11-13 months)
toddler (18-24 months)
preschool (3-4 years)

NOTE:  Standard family sessions are for 2-5 family members.  If your family is larger than 5, an additional $25 per-person charge will apply.  

Generally speaking, family sessions occur outdoors, in the late afternoon/evening, when natural light is at its best.  Sessions will last approximately one hour, and every effort will be made to produce a combination of traditional, posed shots (the "Christmas Card Photo"), as well as natural, interactive, "real" photos (my favorite).  My goal is to make your family session low-stress--even enjoyable.  The best photos are captured when you allow yourself to relax and just be in the moment.  

relax.  have fun.  be real.

This adds up to 30 minutes in my studio, in addition to outdoor settings. This is great for sports and/or formal photos. 

studio add-on, $50

Senior photo sessions are usually between 2 and 3 hours long, and occur outdoors.  There is not a limit, per se, on the number of allowed locations or outfits.  We will work in as many locations and clothing changes as time allows.  Senior sessions focus exclusively on the senior.  Please inquire if you hope to add other people to the session, as additional fees will apply.
