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.

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 sign up for a free consultation here to learn more about what these sessions offer.

These sessions will take between 2-3 hours (this time can be less if baby is sleepy and cooperative).

The 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 photographer's discretion if the session needs more time). All sessions take place in my Richmond, VA studio.

Session fee is $150.


After your session, I carefully choose the best images to edit, and schedule the in person viewing where I can assist you in choosing the final portraits that will coordinate best. 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 1 year. A list of packages and A La Carte items are available upon request.

Packages begin at $750
