Happy to a list of locations.

A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date.  (may be transferred in case of bad weather.)


  • before the session, we have a phone conversation that helps me learn about what your vision is for the shoot.
  • what you & your family enjoy doing as a family, special hobbies, sports.
  • I’ll guide you through the “what to wear” conundrum – always a question with every session.
  • session will go smoothly if I win your trust.  Getting to know more about you helps with the children.  I begin by getting down to their level without the camera aimed taking photos.
  • I don’t have a stopwatch.  Sessions (unless a timed mini session) usually last between 1 – 2 hours.  I make it fun & time flashes by!  I’ve been known to shoot under the light of the moon.
  • children have limited attention spans.  I make sure to get the shots & then let the fun continue.

My overly energetic & bubbly nature makes for a comfortable & happy session.  We become friends & instead of a formal, stressed experience, it’s easy & carefree.  Jumping, chasing, tickles & lots of kookiness!

Remember we are marking moments in time.  It’s ok if your child has a meltdown….don’t stress…it will pass & in the making, I’ll be sure to capture some candids.  Some of my clients’ favorite shots are those unexpected ‘moments in time’.  We are documenting who they are at this stage in life.  I love children & by the end of the session, they are hugging me when they leave & asking for me the next day.
