Our ultimate goal with your session is to catch you, your child’s or your family’s essence as it is right this minute. These moments in time are so fleeting. Tomorrow they might not crouch down to pick a flower the same way or twirl their finger around their hair, they might not be quite as excited to show you their jumping skills or give you those wet open-mouthed kisses the same way. Your children will only be this small for a short while and it is so important to catch them at their most real. That means giving you an organic session that does not involve a lot of stiff posing or cheesy smiles. We love to focus on the details and the uniqueness of your family. We strive to catch real emotions, interactions and meaningful moments. We think these photographs are the best memories of our lives as they are right now.
frequently asked questions
I desperately want some images that include me with my family. What can I expect if I book a session with you?
You can expect a unique experience that is completely tailored to you & your family. Prior to your session we hold a consultation to discuss your likes and dislikes, to help you choose your outfit(s), talk about what to expect and we even discuss your décor so your images match your home. During the session your family’s needs and enjoyment are always first, a custom photography session should be fun! Afterwards we hold a viewing and ordering session online or in person to help you make your digital and print selections. I take a very limited amount of sessions a month so you are getting all of my attention.
My house is just too messy and doesn’t look like the houses on your website.
No problem, I schedule most of my sessions out of a gorgeous New Tampa natural light studio so you don’t have to worry about cleaning up beforehand nor do you have to worry about having picture perfect décor! The studio comes outfitted with a bed and beautiful neutral furnishings.
When should I schedule a session?
Newborn sessions are best scheduled while you are still pregnant to reserve your date. They are usually held in the first 4-10 days of life. Regular sessions can be scheduled at any time, but please be aware that I book several months in advance, especially during busy season (September-December).
How long until I see my images?
I will contact you within 2 weeks of your session to schedule your viewing & ordering consultation or your online gallery.
Do you have a photography “style”?
Great question and yes I do! I love creamy neutrals and images with a bit of a “matte” quality. I love lots of light to achieve most of my photography style, which many have called soft and airy. For my darker images, I use natural light or occasionally studio lights. I also love a pop of color in my imagery!
I see you offer a lifestyle session, what does that mean?
Lifestyle sessions are an amazing way to capture your family as it is at this exact moment. They are unposed, unscripted sessions that allow me to capture your family in spontaneous laughter, loving hugs and kisses and genuine emotions. We will custom design a session around activities that your family normally enjoys and then I will capture you interacting and loving each other. These sessions can be held in your home, the park or anywhere else you frequent as a family. We can be creative and go to an ice cream shop, have a picnic, visit the zoo or pretty much anywhere else. The possibilities are limitless and no two sessions will be the same.
