Sessions are scheduled in half-day 4 to 5 hour increments to accommodate the natural ebb and flow of normal daily activity, feedings, tiredness, and mood swings (they do happen) while providing ample opportunity to capture a variety of images and settings. Full days from sunup to sundown are also available upon request, enabling an even broader array of potential image-making opportunities.
For children ages 0-3, multiple sessions are recommended. More on this below.
Scheduling is first come, first serve. Obviously the schedule fills up fast during warmer months. I suggest inquiring well in advance, in particular if you are expecting.
All sessions are shot on-location in the comfort of your home and out-and-about visiting places and doing the things you enjoy most – morning snuggles, giving your baby his or her first bath, learning to crawl, playing in the yard, meal time, nap time, going for a walk, the beach…anything that speaks to the richness of your life. You being you. For expecting parents, your first session can even be at the hospital! Sounds a bit crazy as we aren’t necessarily feeling our freshest a day or two after delivery, but you’ll treasure having those images down the road; I guarantee it.
Limited extended destination/vacation bookings are available annually and are based on availability. A minimum booking of 3 full days is required for these bookings.
If Your Children Are Ages 0-3, Consider Multiple Sessions
For children ages 0-3, if resources permit, booking multiple sessions over the course of these first few years is highly recommended. I have never heard a parent regret having too many photos of their kids at this age. But sadly have heard many regret not having more. And there is a reason why:
The interplay between individual moments and the passage of time creates a compelling photo legacy. Physiologically the rate of change between birth and age three is unparalleled. Put simply, THEY GROW FAST! No matter how much we are forewarned as expecting parents, the reality never ceases to amaze. And can sometimes be a blur. Multiple sessions spread out over the course of a year ensure a rich photo diary of this incredible time in your newborn, infant, or toddler’s life, affords you an opportunity to relive the blur, to watch your kids grow all over again, and for your son or daughter – when they’re of age – to reconnect with their past.
