ALL SESSIONS INCLUDE:
my time and skill
a 4x6 proofing collection of all images;
and a two-week online gallery to purchase prints or products.
Your newborn session will take place within the first two weeks of birth. It will last an hour or so in the comfort of your home where I will seek out the best natural light for our time together. My focus is on capturing the sweet, tiny details of your little one, so the limited use of props or showy outfits is encouraged. Neutral colors are usually best. I always encourage parents and siblings to join in for a few captured moments as well. Your gallery will include 25 images that have been thoughtfully curated to cherish as family heirlooms for generations to come.
This comfortable and relaxed session is the perfect way to document your family as it grows. It includes up to one hour at your home or a nearby park when the light is just right. My goal is to present you with moments of joy that show your true relationships and not simply staged smiles. I want you and your kids to feel like themselves in front of the camera, which often means a lot of silliness takes place! Your gallery will have 30 images from our time together that includes a mixture of candids and portraits.
This session is similar to our family session in that it is relaxed and fun! It includes up to one hour at your home or a nearby park. My goal is to capture your child’s true spirit at his or her particular stage in life. This is a great option for annual birthdays or special occasions for a little one. Your gallery will have 30 images that includes a mixture of candids and portraits.
Your maternity session will be scheduled sometime between 30 to 35 weeks of your pregnancy. It includes thirty minutes at a nearby park or in the comfort of your home. The focus is documenting this miraculous season in a simple yet beautiful way. Years from now, these photographs will be some of your most treasured memories - and what a gift to share with your child when they are older! Your gallery will include 15 images from our time together.
I desire for this to be an enjoyable process for you! I take pride in giving our clients all information prior to reserving a session so there are no surprises or hidden fees. Please feel free to ask any questions regarding your session details and experience with me.
A $100 retainer is required to reserve your session. This retainer is used toward your session fee, and the remainder is due at the time of your session. In the chance you need to reschedule, you can do so up to 2 times after which the retainer is considered payment for time lost.
Your photographs will be available in an online viewing gallery within five business days from your session date. You’ll have two weeks to decide on prints and products before the gallery closes.
Tennessee state sales tax is not included in the fees above and will be added at the time payment is due.
What should we wear?
Great question! First, I want your photographs to reflect your family. I want you and your littles to feel - and look! - like themselves. For newborn portraits, it’s best not to wear solid white or black but any other neutrals or lighter shades of your favorite colors will work great. For family or sibling sessions, I suggest colors that won’t compete with personalities. Graphics or bold prints are discouraged. It’s a good idea to have them wear complimentary colors as opposed to all matching. Feel free to browse the portfolio page to get an idea or you can always email me to discuss this more.
Do you offer high resolution digital negatives?
Yes! I want all my clients to have access to the photographs from a session. There is an option to purchase the digital negatives as an instant download in your online viewing gallery. But! We live in a digital age where everything lives on a screen, and I want more than anything to get your gorgeous images off a screen and into your home. This is why I include a 4x6 proofing collection with every session - and why I don’t assume you only want your photographs in digital format. I want to give you the option to purchase prints or enlargements through my professional lab without the headache of doing it yourself.
