My children and family photography style is spontaneous and candid; I aim to be more of an observer rather than give continuous direction.

I have lots of ideas and can offer suggestions for your photo session, and please don't hesitate to let me know if you have anything special in mind!

I like to shoot on location at a local destination of your choice (park, countryside, or urban setting, for example) in order to give your children freedom of movement and capture more natural images than those obtained in a studio. If you need help I can offer suggestions for nearby locations.


Children and family portrait sessions generally last one hour, and maternity shoots last one to two hours.

Newborn shoots can take three to four hours- I like to allow this time so that we will not feel rushed and can relax and work together to take the best photos possible. This gives you time to take breaks to
feed, change, and comfort your baby whenever needed and let your baby fall asleep, and it gives me time to set up different types of shots.

A custom photography session is an investment in your family's memories, memories that will become even more precious with the passage of time. Individual sessions cost 200 and package discounts are available to document your baby's first year (see below). Mini sessions are also available.

Session fees include photographer's time and talent, fifteen 13x18 cm gift prints, and a CD with 40-60 edited/retouched photographs in high resolution (and any additional products listed in the packages). Prints and additional products can be ordered after the shoot.

A photo session is a special and unique gift idea
. I offer gift certificates for individual shoots or baby packages.

If you are interested in scheduling a portrait session and would like more information about how to prepare for your session, what to wear, pricing, and products, you are welcome to make an appointment for a pre-portrait consultation or to contact me by e-mail and I will respond as soon as possible.
