These films are full of emotion like experiencing a living memory. You will love the effortless and authentic approach to documenting this phase of your life; centered around everyday memories you will want to keep forever. This all-inclusive session includes a custom film and photos.
DAY IN THE LIFE SESSION
Day in the Life sessions document your family’s everyday life in your home and wherever you go. These sessions record all of the unscripted moments that make up your day - the good ones, the sweet ones, the hilarious ones, and maybe even tantrums... I will capture it all. :) All you have to do is be yourselves! Your family is unique and wonderful right in this moment and these stages are fleeting. I want you to always remember them.
day in the life - Full DAY
During this 6 hour photography session, I tag along with you and your family for the day! No planning, no expectations. I'll capture the morning roll-out-of-bed moments, picking up your little ones from school, preparing dinner together and snuggly bedtime stories; there are lots of special moments to chronicle throughout your normal day.
day in the life - HALF DAY
This 4 hour photography session is a scaled down version of the full day.
HOURLY DOCUMENTARY FAMILY SESSIONS
This 1-2 hour session is based around activities that would be part of your ideal day. My aim is to engage family members so that they interact with one another while not paying attention to the camera. These sessions are great for outdoor family photos and work well for anyone who wants to see natural moments evolve while enjoying fun times together. Fifteen minutes will be allotted for formal (camera-aware) portraits and the rest of the time will be letting loose and enjoying each other's company. Bring things that you and your family can do together (ie. bubbles, kites, balls). Please do not wear matching clothing, such as white shirts and khaki pants. Sessions are held at the location of your choice.
My focus for birth stories is to honor the emotions of this amazing process. The photographs show the connections between you and the people in the room, different points of view, the involvement of your supporters (providing comfort) and any contextual details that happen naturally. Please note that some hospitals will not allow recording during the moment of birth for legal reasons.
I will also stay for awhile after the birth to capture the moments of connection with your new family member, siblings meeting, feeding and [finally] resting. If you decide, I can return the next day and capture visiting hour(s) in addition to when you take your new baby home.
This is the biggest honor and I am so appreciative to tell the story of such an impactful part of your lives.
NEWBORN & first year SESSIONS
My goal in a newborn session is to capture everything you want to remember about having a newborn—because this time goes by so fast! Your new routine may consist of nursing or bottle feeding, rocking, time with siblings and lots of ooohs and aaaahhhss... Whatever happens, goes! There will be no rush and no expectations. I’ll spend up to 2 hours photographing your family and include some casual newborn portraits, too.
Year in the Life sessions document all of the major turning points in baby's first year. During this time, I will provide 4 sessions that capture your little one at each milestone...newborn, 4-months (lifting head/rolling over), 7-months (sitting-up/crawling) and 12-months (standing/walking).
Every event is marked by its own special moments. I will skillfully capture this story and deliver portraits that you will find yourselves talking about for years to come.
