Family and Maternity Portrait Sessions
Family portrait sessions are held at the location of your choice (your home, local park, museum, etc.), within 30 miles of Richmond, Va. Styling tips are given upon request, to help coordinate your family and home decor seamlessly.
Maternity sessions have the option of choosing from several maternity gowns in my studio collection. A complimentary maternity session is included with every newborn purchase.
All portrait sessions last up to 90 minutes.
Newborn sessions are my specialty, are one of my favorite sessions to do. I love being able to give new parents a break while I create beautiful memories. The best time to photograph a newborn is between 7-20 days of life, to be able to capture those sweet sleepy poses, while baby also has the time to pass through the first stages of cluster feeding.
These sessions need to be scheduled months in advance to ensure I have blocked those special dates around the time baby is due. If baby comes earlier or later than expected, I will be in contact to adjust schedule time frames. For more information on what to expect for your session, please read my What to Expect page, for your Newborn Session information.
These sessions will take place in your home, or my in space if you prefer, and take between 2-3 hours (this time can be less if baby is sleepy and cooperative).
These sessions are designed to capture sweet memories in each milestone stage. They are typically quick sessions, working at a faster pace with babies becoming more mobile. I prefer to schedule these at stages rather than ages, as all babies grow and develop at different rates.
The first stage is sitting up, between 5-8 months of age. We focus this session on capturing babies growing features, smiles, and the interaction that babies develop at this age.
The second stage is standing, between 9-12 months of age. This is the best time to schedule cake smash portraits, or food smash for a fun and messier time! These milestone sessions typically last up to one hour.
This session fee includes the time and talent of the photographer, and is due upon booking to schedule your session.
Each session is up to 90 minutes (this time is based on the photographers discretion if the session needs more time). All sessions take place within 30 miles of Richmond, Va.
After your session, I carefully choose the best images to edit, and schedule our in person viewing to help you choose the gallery that will blend with your home decor. Each print purchased comes with the matching high resolution digital image, provided for you through an online personal gallery. These galleries will remain available for 10 years. A list of packages and A La Carte items are available upon request.
