"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything"   Aaron Siskind


Newborn Sessions ($475)

Those first few weeks with your little one pass by in a blur of exhaustion, elation, joy, tears, and wonderment.  Your family is forever changed when you welcome a new baby into the world and one of my greatest joys is capturing those first precious moments.  When babies are still curled up as they were inside you; when they still fit in the palm of your hand; when their limbs and eyelashes have yet to unfurl; when they stare out into the world taking all the newness in.  

Newborn sessions take place on weekdays either in the comfort of your home or in my professional photography studio.  In home sessions, which are for 5 to 30 day old babies and last for 1.5 hours, focus on the relationship between family members and the new arrival with their home as the backdrop. Studio sessions, which are for 5 to 14 day old babies and last for 2 hours, focus on artistically posed images of the family and then of the baby, taking advantage of different backdrops, props, blankets, and accessories. Newborn sessions are pre-booked based on your due date, which acts as a placeholder  for your session guaranteeing you a spot in my schedule irrespective of whether your baby arrives early or late. 

The session fee includes 25 edited, retouched, and artistically enhanced digital files of your choice in colour and black & white.

Extraordinary Sessions ($350)

These sessions are a wonderful opportunity for timeless portraits as well as the candid 'in between' moments that are just as meaningful. Extraordinary sessions are a wonderful opportunity for families to connect with each other in front of my camera and for lasting memories of posed portraits but also tickle fights, adventures in the forest, apple picking, cuddling up to read a book, or skipping rocks together.

Mamas-to-be have the opportunity to shine during our time together.   There is something especially captivating about a pregnant woman's shape and the glow, anticipation, and wonderment that come with pregnancy.  I love taking the time to inspire confidence in my expectant mamas and taking their breath away when they see how beautiful they really are.  Maternity sessions typically take place between 30 and 35 weeks. 

Family and Maternity Sessions are 45 minutes long and take place on weekdays or weekends in the studio, in your home, or outdoors.    

The session fee includes 20 edited, retouched, and artistically enhanced digital files of your choice in colour and black & white.

Memories Sessions ($225)

As a busy mom of three young boys I understand how the hustle and bustle of daily life gets in the way of even our best intentions.  I understand how important it is to families to take time out of their busy schedules for family photos but I also recognize how difficult this can be.  Memories Sessions are the perfect solution for families who'd like more than one photography session over the course of the year and who want an experience that suits their little ones shorter attention spans and their busy daily lives.  

Memories sessions are a great opportunity for cake smash photos, milestone photos of your babies and children, or for family photos.  

Memories sessions are 20 minutes long and take place on weekdays in the studio.  In the Spring, Summer, and Fall I offer Memories Sessions outdoors on a select number of weekday and weekend dates. 

The session fee includes 10 edited, retouched, and artistically enhanced digital files of your choice in colour and black & white.

Moment Session ($125)

Childhood is fleeting and Moments Sessions are meant to capture the magic of both the ordinary and the extraordinary moments that make up our everyday lives.  They are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate milestones, holidays, and for family and sibling photos throughout the year.   

Moments sessions are offered on specific dates throughout the year.  Details are released via my Newsletter, which is sent on a monthly basis.  If you are interested in my Moments Sessions I would encourage you to take advantage of my Front of the Lens packages.  

The session fee includes 5 edited, retouched, and artistically enhanced digital files of your choice in colour and black & white.
