My studio newborn sessions are done within two weeks of your baby's life, ideally before baby turns 10 days old. They are scheduled around your due date and take place in my home studio in Decatur.
I keep my color palette fairly neutral and organic. If you have a particular color or style in mind, let me know.
Sessions are about 2.5 to 3 hours long to allow enough time for baby to settle and eat if needed.
My whimsical style requires to spend a lot more time post process. I spend a lot more time behind the computer than I do behind the camera. I craft each portrait for over 30 minutes to achieve my final product.
My Lifestyle newborn sessions are done within two weeks of your baby's life, ideally before baby turns 10 days old. I schedule them a couple of days around your due date.
Lifestyle sessions document baby first moments at home around his family.
I come to your home with a few neutral colored swaddles and blanket. I usually shoot the family in the living room, bedroom and nursery or even outside if weather allows and take some "baby alone" photos as well.
Sessions are about 1.5 to 2 hours long to allow enough time for baby to settle and eat if needed.
I typically book these between 32-34 week of pregnancy, starting 30 weeks if it is not your first pregnancy.
After we discuss your needs, location and date preference, we meet on location for our session.
A full session lasts about 45 minutes but some people decide on a shorter session as an add-on to their newborn session.
After the session is when the "behind the scenes" works starts on my end as I spend much longer editing than shooting.
Within a week, I will send you a proofing gallery with a light edit, you make your final selection.
I then spend 20-30 minutes hand editing each final photo to give it my whimsical finish 45 minutes depending on your need.
