I love keeping sessions natural and comfortable, especially when working with small children. If your kids are relaxed and having fun, their sparkling personalities will come out in your images. I enjoy designing a special playdate, whether it be a tea party, or a super hero rescue in the park is what makes your images one of a kind. If you want to keep it clean and simple, or go wild in my many prop selection, your session will be unique to you.
No one wants to looked frazzled and rushed in their photos, so be prepared to set aside 1-2 hours (2-4 hours for newborn sessions). Feel free to bring a couple of fun outfits, with bright colors and textures. Also, accessorize to the fullest! Fun tights, hats, baubles, favorite truck or doll, little purses...anything that makes you you. For the newborns we want to go in the opposite direction, Sara loves babies to go all natural. If you have a special blanket, hat, or toy feel free to bring it.
If you are pregnant and want to do a newborn session, contact me before your delivery with the due date. I will work your session into my schedule keeping in mind baby comes when his or her own time. It is best to capture those sweet newbies between a 2-10 day age window. That is how I get all those angelic sleeping photos, and clear soft skin. Newborn sessions usually are 2-4 hours long, to allow for cuddling, feedings, and diaper changes. The best outfit for a newborn is...nothing :) Newborns are perfect in all their littleness, and clothes tend to just get in the way. Although, I do love to add a special hat, or even a small tutu is a fun accessory for a couple of images.
Your proofs with be available in a private gallery for viewing 2-3weeks after your session. You gallery will be up for one week. Orders will be placed within that one week period. If your gallery expires before you place an order, there is a $25 fee to reactivate for four days. Once all orders are approved and paid in full your order will be placed.
