Find Out Where You Need to Start
Your session is a collaborative process, but I’ll walk you through every step of the way from booking to receiving your final images.
Check out my portfolios as well as pricing for the session(s) you’re interested in. If you have questions, you may wish to check out the FAQ. Then get in touch!
Get in touch! The best time to have your maternity session is around the 32-35 week mark. For newborns, it’s best to do the session around 3-15 days of age. I encourage booking at least 4-6 weeks ahead of time to ensure availability and allow time for planning.
Complete your booking by filling out the (digital) paperwork I’ll send you. Your booking is complete when I receive your retainer and signed session agreement. We’ll also set up a time for your planning call.
During your session,
we’ll begin with some standard, straight-forward poses, then work into eliciting more emotion. I use a series of prompts rooted in a grounding practice to have you feeling at ease, as well as connected to and enjoying the moment.
After your session, you’ll receive a link to your private online gallery. For the keepsake package, your images will be fully edited and ready to download. For the basic or classic package, you’ll be able to select your images which I will then edit and place back into the gallery for you to download.
