Where will my session take place?
We will work together to find the perfect location for your session. I have lots of different places that I've used and love. I am primarily a natural light photographer, so I tend to go where the light is best. There are so many great places to photograph in Southwest Michigan!
Do I get the digital files? How long does it take?
You sure do! I deliver my pictures through an online, password protected gallery. Anyone with the link and password to your gallery will be able to download the pictures that they want. I love delivering as many pictures as I can get, to ensure that you don't have pick which ones are your favorites. I usually deliver galleries within 2-3 weeks of the session.
What should I wear?
I always recommend finding two or three coordinating colors and sticking with those as a family. Our main goal is for everyone to be comfortable and feel beautiful, but still look like themselves. Don't overdo the makeup, don't wear baggy clothes, don't wear clothes with writing or pictures on them. Do use layers and textures, natural looking makeup and some cute accessories to make sure you look great in your pictures. If you have any more questions, I am always more than happy to help!
Family Session //$250// My approach to family sessions is not your average. At my family sessions we play, snuggle, and laugh. My goal is to capture you and your family just being you and the natural connections and emotions between family members. I want to see your family and the real love that you have for each other. Sure, we will get that "Christmas card" image that everyone wants, but I believe in capturing the true charm and emotions of your family.*
Lifestyle Newborn Session //$250// There is nothing sweeter than the newness of a newborn baby. I like to come into your home and capture those moments that are fleeting, your family getting to know its newest member. I like to schedule these in your home, so that we can truly capture all the emotions surrounding bringing home your new bundle of joy. I like to do these within 2-3 weeks of birth.
Maternity Session //$250// Ahh, pregnancy. Such a crazy time, with so many different emotions carrying through. Whether this is your first child or your sixth, making sure that you capture this stage in life is vital. Everything changes when the new baby arrives.
Childhood Portraits //$175// Kids grow and change in the blink of an eye. These short, 30 minute sessions are perfect for capturing milestones in your child's life. This is for one child only and does not include more than one subject. Common milestones include: 3 months, six months, 1 year, and so on. Contact me regarding prices for adding more children or more time.
Fresh 48 - In Hospital Newborn Session //$225// Fresh 48 sessions take place in the hospital after you've delivered. I'm there to capture all that new baby goodness, from meeting family members to the first diaper change.
Senior Pictures //$250// Then end of an era, a new beginning. My senior sessions are 2 hours and include the option for 2 separate locations.
