What kind of photographer are you? I am lifestyle newborn & family photographer and dance photographer.
My newborn and family sessions combine relaxed posed portraits with natural, organic and genuine moments. As I'm creating your images I am taking into careful consideration my knowledge of light and design in order to capture your family in an artful way. I combine lifestyle, documentary newborn photography along with family portraiture to capture genuine images for you to treasure for a lifetime. I will always get the requisite portraits of everyone looking at the camera, but it will not be forced. Everything else is authentic to you and your story.
My dance photography captures your love of ballet and dance in an authentic and artistic way. My goal is always to capture your unique strengths and style as a dancer.
Where will my session be held? I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session. Sometimes the best place for a session is in the comfort of your home where every one can be relaxed. Newborn sessions are always held in your home. Dance & Ballet session take place on location or in studio.
When do newborn sessions occur? Within the first two weeks after the birth of your little one. My newborn sessions focus on natural moments within your family. Newborn sessions with me are relaxed, un-posed and genuine.
What should I wear? I want you to feel comfortable during your session so it's important for you to choose clothing that reflects your personal style. Please stay away from large logos, sneakers, too many or large accessories, bright whites, or matching clothes. It's best to coordinate colors. I have a Pinterest board full of ideas that might help.
Will I get digital photos after the shoot? I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive all the high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. A minimum of 40 digital files (20 for dance sessions) will be available to you (but usually there are more!), in both color and black and white. You will also have the option to buy additional prints, albums or wall art.
How do you choose which images to include in my gallery? I look at every image that I capture during your session. With careful consideration, I hand select the images that best represent your family and me as an artist. I guarantee a minimum of 40 images, but there are usually many more. Because of the unique nature of dance sessions, I guarantee a minimum of 20 images.
How far out are you booked? I typically book 2-3 months in advance. For newborn sessions, I recommend that you contact me during your pregnancy. However, I do leave space in my calendar for last minute sessions.
Do you offer mini sessions? I offer a limited number of petite sessions seasonally in the early spring and fall.
How much should I plan to invest? My pricing is all-inclusive. You pay one price for ALL of the digital files. Total cost is $450 for newborn or family sessions and dance sessions. A $200 deposit is due when booking to secure your session date.
How do I book a session with you? I'm glad you asked. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact form on this website.
