Natural light is my preferred choice for family and individual sessions. I love to work 1- 1.5 hours before sunset, when natural light is the most flattering to you. BUT, if that doesn’t work for your schedule, I’ll bring pretty light with me… on a stick!
After your session is scheduled, we will have a pre-session consultation by email or phone. Where we can discuss the look and feel you would like your images to have. We can brainstorm together for locations and wardrobe choices that will compliment your vision.
If you are interested in a portrait session, fill out the contact form above and I will be in touch soon!
The best time to have professional portraits made of your newborn is during the first 5 – 12 days of life. Newborn sessions should be scheduled in advance of delivery and are reserved on my calendar with your due date.
Once you have booked your session, I will send you a pre-session questionnaire, and a portrait contract. When you deliver your baby just send me a quick text or email, then we will schedule the actual session date.
Newborn Portrait Session
Our Lovin’ the Light Studio is perfect for a newborn portrait session. I have everything needed for posing your baby and capturing family images. A newborn session is a time to capture your little one just as they are, tiny, fresh and natural. I will photograph them the way they arrived, without much added. I provide the backdrops, simple tiebacks or hats to add to the images in natural fibers and textures to compliment your baby.
Our session will average 2.5 – 3 hours in studio. I create a peaceful environment where your baby can settle in. I always allow time for feeding and changing if needed. On the day of your session, I allow your baby to dictate the time we meet by their best nap 1-2 days before hand. If family images are being made, we will capture them first.
Newborn Lifestyle Session
Lifestyle sessions do not offer the traditional posed images of your newborn and family. The focus is to capture the bond between parents, siblings and your baby. This session is held in your home and lasts 1.5 – 2 hours.

Having a new baby to nurture and care for changes us deeply. Forever you are a caregiver, prayer partner and friend. The birth of your child ranks along side of your wedding day as the most important experience you will ever go through.
The images I capture, will allow you to see your strength during delivery, along with your husbands care and connection with you.
I will capture your baby's first breath!
Nothing is quite like seeing your own joy, while holding her for the first time, along with your husbands expressions as he holds her! I'll also capture the people you invited into the delivery room, your support team. It is such an incredible honor to be there to document the miracle of new life for you.
