Come on into our waiting area and make your self at home. Our playrooms toys and other amenities will make your visit to our studio even more enjoyable. During your session we will listen to your baby's or toddler's cues for best results. This should feel more like playdate than a portrait session!

Once I have collected your proofs, I will place them inside my gallery portal and send you a direct link to your own photo gallery. From this portal, you can purchase your keepsake digital portraits and one of a kind art for your home.

Happy delivery!

Photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. They should be admired in your home and bring warmth into your life. I offer prints and albums so you can cherish your favorite moments and memories forever.

Cherish your moments forever.

Depending on the experience you select you can expect anywhere from 10 to about 40+ proofs inside your viewing gallery. This number can be affected by cooperation of our tiny subjects or their siblings and late arrival times. Please show up early, rested, fed and ready to go so that you can get the most out of your session time with me.

05. How many images will we see in our viewing gallery?

The session + digital image options are detailed in the different Experiences below. This covers the session + print release, as well as our planning guide and services. Your proofs will be presented to you via a viewing and ordering gallery about a week after our session. Printed products and digital images are available via the gallery. For detailed product pricing visit this sample gallery.

04. What comes with the session?.

A great session starts with great planning. Choose 2-3 areas in the home to focus on for our session.  If these areas are tidy that is all we need. 

03. How do we prepare our home for our session?

Every experience option welcomes you to bring your immediate family and grandparents. 
Anytime we will have young children with I recommend that you also bring along a family helper that the kiddos know and love.

02. who can I bring to my session?

Spend time in the 2 hours before our session giving baby awake time. Give baby a bath and moisturize. Play with baby and feed baby about 1/2 hour before we are set to start.
