Pregnancy Portrait Sessions

Pregnancy sessions are held around 34 – 37 weeks gestation, and can be done in studio or on location.

Pregnancy sessions are a beautiful way to document the journey to parenthood, and I encourage you to include your partner and any older children you may have!


Newborn Portrait Sessions

Newborn sessions are held in studio, preferably before your baby is 14 days of age. I have a range of props and blankets to use, but I do love when families bring along heirloom items or something unique and special for their baby.

Most newborn sessions take around 2 – 3 hours, and I don’t like to rush babies if they need feeding or soothing.

I think it’s super important for your baby to have photographs with his/her family – it’s such an important thing for them to be able to look back on their time as a newborn, and see how loved they are. For newborn sessions, wear something simple and comfortable, with no large patterns and with tonal ranges all blending together from outfit to outfit. I am more than happy to help with the coordination of your outfits too!


Family Portrait Sessions

I prefer family sessions to be guided by the children involved. I don’t like things to be too posed – I love to capture the personality of each child, and I am a sucker for photographing the bond and connection between parents and their children. That means, that not every photo will be “posed”, nor will you be looking down the barrel of the camera…I want to capture your family, as they are.

Most importantly, I want your family session to be fun. I want it to be reflective of you and your family – from the location, to the outfits you choose to wear. I want it to be something you look back on and smile about.
