What kind of photographer are you?
My photography journey has been mostly shaped by my love for documenting my children’s lives. I love flipping through our family albums and seeing genuine smiles and the real moments, which include the hard days that change us and shape us as individuals. These are the photos that take me right back to those memories of my children at whatever stage they were in at that time. My style is best described as honest and natural. I am a natural light lifestyle photographer and work on location. The best way to get a feel for my style is to have a look around my blog.
My number one goal at any session is to catch my clients connecting with one another naturally.
When should I schedule my session?
I am currently booking about 3 months in advance, so be sure to plan ahead for your session. The best time to schedule a maternity session is around weeks 30-35 of your pregnancy. This is when you’ll have a nice round bump and are still feeling great.
Newborn sessions take place within the first 10 days after birth. Let me know as early in your pregnancy as possible about booking your session. Since we rarely know when babies will be born, I always leave extra room in my schedule around your due date to schedule your session after delivery.
I only shoot outdoor family sessions around the hours of sunrise or sunset.
Where will my session take place?
Together we can decide on a perfect location for your family based on your personalities and personal style and preferences. This might be a golden sunlit field, an urban downtown location or your own home. All newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your own home.
What should I wear?
What you wear at your session makes a huge difference in the outcome of your images and this is one of the questions clients ask me most before a session. Most importantly, you should dress in a way that you are comfortable and feel great about yourself. I have a pinterest board with plenty of suggestions to look through for inspiration. For families, it’s best to choose within a color palate rather than everyone wearing the same color. Limit patterns to one or two members of the family and avoid characters or logos on clothing.
To make your session even more gorgeous and effortless, I highly reccomend our styling services. Nicole will work with you and your family to prepare a completely unique wardrobe customized to your family and your session. You can find out more about her services here.
When will I get my images/how will they be delivered?
We live in a digital world and I know the importance of having all the digital images from your session. Your images grow in value over time to you and your family members and that’s why I want you to have them all. So, all of my sessions include a custom USB with all of your full resolution images as well as the option to purchase beautiful professional prints and canvases.
Do you offer prints?
Yes. Within two to three weeks of your session, I will email you a link to an online gallery where you can share your images with friends and family can order beautiful professional prints and canvases.
