It is a blessing and an honor to be able to photograph major events in people's lives. I was lucky enough to photograph Megan and Chad when they were engaged, at their wedding, their first child's birth and her newborn session. When someone trusts you with capturing their most important moments, I do not take that lightly. I am so excited to follow along with the journey of each of my clients and give them memories to look back on after the years have passed. I can't wait to see how this family grows and looks in the years to come. I have a feeling there may be a few more newborn sessions in their future. Congratulations, Megan and Chad!
Sometimes people come into your life through mysterious ways. Like the universe pulled you together and you just have to listen and find out why! I met Mandy through a Facebook mom's group. She has a large family, like we do, and we started chatting about life and all it has to throw at us! I was thrilled when she chose me to photograph her new addition. I didn't know until after we booked the session that this little nugget is a rainbow baby.
A rainbow baby is a baby born after a loss of another baby. The feelings that surround the birth of a rainbow baby are complex and intense. My favorite quote to help give some understanding to those who have not been touched by this experience is this:
"The beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravage of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean that the storm never happened...What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds." (Author Unknown)
I love how this session turned out for Jackson and his family...to celebrate his birth and the memory of the baby who came before him. Oh! Jackson's sister got in on the action too and what a character!
Some of my favorite newborn sessions are in the evening, in the winter. Everything is still and quiet and it is the perfect time to snuggle into the studio with a new baby.Read More
I can fit a LOT into a mini session. Even a bit of dancing! :p I have been photographing these kiddos at mini session for 3 years at least twice a year and was even invited to photograph baby Amelia's birth. How lucky am I to have such good looking and fun clients. :)
I have decided to schedule mini sessions for the year all at once so we can plan ahead. Not my strong suit, so everyone should be very proud!
All mini sessions are $225 and include 10 images with full printing rights delivered electronically. **Deposit of 50% is required to reserve session. **
**note: mini session can be used as milestones but I do require children to be sitters or in a family photo type set up**
