I remember the moment my daughter was born. Even in the midst of an emergency c-section, I can clearly remember when she opened her eyes and looked at me for the first time. After going through 20 hours of labor I didn't feel up to newborn photos. That decision is something I will always regret. Sure, I have a bunch of photos of her on my phone - but I don't have any of the two of us together at that age.
I get it. You're tired, sore and overwhelmed. But trust me, you will want those first photos together. When they are still so small they can fit in one arm. When being held against your chest is the only they need they have in this world. When they still smell new.
Get in the photo, mama. I'm here to help.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
You will want to remember what it feels like to have those little arms to entwine around your neck. For those little lips to give you a kiss, for those little feet to sit on your lap.

No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.
what do we do if it rains?
The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!
To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones.
WE'RE AWKWARD AND MY KIDS DON'T SIT STILL.
Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
