Sessions


Life moves by fast. And you want to preserve those moments and spaces that feel so fleeting…   

The transformative, sacred, intensity of birth.

The wonder and challenges of a new day with your newborn.

 The sweet cuddles and tearful tantrums with toddlers.

Choose from our full selection of maternity, birth, newborn, and family life photography packages to capture your unique story.

So you can enjoy a more a la carte experience, sessions include an online gallery where you can pick and choose the images you’d like to purchase. With that choice, you have the option of downloading digital files or ordering prints directly through the gallery.

Newborn Session

Newborn feet

This session captures those precious first days at home with your newborn. It’s a time full of wonder and new challenges as you begin life with your new family member and they begin to discover their new world around them.

You’ll have plenty of time for cuddles and kisses, feedings and diaper changes. We’ll capture a glimpse of your day-to-day during this time, and plenty of sweet bonding moments between you and baby and as well as other family members.  

2.5 - 3 HOURS | $250


Maternity Session

With this session, we’ll celebrate your body’s incredible transformation, beauty, and strength during your pregnancy. This shoot has the flexibility to be what you want it to be – sweet, earthy, sensual, spiritual. Whatever you’re feeling, we’ll capture your pregnancy’s unique experience and vibe.  

And we’ll help you find a setting where you feel comfortable, inspired, and powerful, whether that’s enjoying a favorite spot in nature or relaxing in the intimacy of your home.

Feel free to do a solo session, invite your partner, bring your baby’s older siblings in to play, or do all of the above. You’ll also have time for a wardrobe change so you can play with showing off your new belly and body.

1 - 1.5 Hours | $150


Family Life Session: Sketches

This quick session is perfect for young kiddos who love to move and play. Instead of strict poses (and tears) we’ll capture fun memories of your family playing and spending time together.

Get ice cream, play tag at the park, pick blueberries at a local farm, jump in autumn leaves, make snow angels. Celebrate the vibrant energy, giggles, and delight of being together as you run after your little ones.

We’ll even get some great shots for your holiday card or to send to gifts for the grandparents!

1 Hour | $125


Family Life Session: Full Palette

This session is our most popular. Imagination is the only limitation on what it can be! 

Playing with dinosaurs

Relax at home, or choose a favorite location or activity. Enjoy bath time, cook a meal together, play with dinosaurs, gather eggs from the chicken coop.

We’ll have time to watch for everyday moments and capture them in a fresh, natural way — your two years old’s tantrum, an overly-loved stuffed animal, the art on your fridge, a child’s unique way of kissing. And we always find time for some (stress-free) traditional portraits.

This is also the perfect session for when relatives come to visit and you want to get everyone together at the river or the beach. We’ll have time to commemorate the gathering, and if it's warm enough, maybe even jump in the water. 

2 Hours | $175


Birth Photography Package 

Birth hand holding

Every birth has its own unique path.  I’ve had the privilege of attending many births as a doula, and as your photographer I’m able to anticipate your needs and capture your process completely unobtrusively.

Being present for a baby’s earth-side arrival is like no other time in the world. Time collapses and I am there to witness the hard work of your labor, the intensity of birth as well as the gentleness as you hold your baby for the first time.

Instead of worrying over who will document some of the most important and transformative moments of your life, I make it possible for you, your partner, and your team to all be fully present for the birth journey.

Because the first time you hold your child is a moment so important, it deserves better than to be captured in a grainy cell phone picture.

  • Pre-Birth Meeting via phone or in person around 32 weeks to discuss what your dreams are for birth photography.
