As a mother of three, I understand how fast childhood can fly by! My three littles are my world, and the importance of motherhood, and that wild love like no other is what inspires me. My favourite is to capture all the love and moments that are important to your family. You have a legacy to build, let me help document it. Through creating connections in candid poses, bringing out genuine smiles, or delicately posing your new baby, my job is to guide you and help bring those true connections and moments to light.
Whether we are shooting at the ocean, a field or mountain, or in a forest, I am constantly chasing that beautiful light. Soft golden sunsets, or the wild west coast wind and drama, I will work with the elements to create beautiful portraits of your family. In studio I work within a calm and soothing environment and large soft box lighting, to achieve a lovely balance of shadow and highlights.
When we bring home a baby, we start counting in days, then weeks, then months, soon those months become years. We wish we could freeze time and the joy we share with our children, but years from now, your portraits will be what help you travel back in time to these moments again and again and again.
How can I book when I don’t know when my baby will be born?
You can book your due date! This will secure a place on the calendar, and when your baby is born, just contact me and we will set your session date for when baby is approximately 5-14 days old. (scheduled c-sections, we can skip straight to booking the session date)
What if I have a c-section?
If you have a c-section, I generally recommend we schedule you closer to the 14-18 days range. This gives you a chance to heal and ensure that you’re more comfortable during the session.
What if baby is premature, and spends time in the NICU, will they be too old?
With preemie babies, the 5-14 day timeline is not a worry. We generally have until their adjusted age to work out a session date and ensure they are still nice and sleepy.
I am due with twins, is a session still the same?
Absolutely! I will also have an assistant with me to ensure both babies are safely cared for at all times. The session will include shots of them together, as well as each on their own.
What do I need to bring to the session?
Just yourselves! I have everything needed to style the session for baby, and I include some outfit suggestions for family poses in the prep guide that is emailed to you once baby is born, and the session date is scheduled.
