Motherhood portraiture has a special place in my heart and let me tell you why. I’ve been blessed with two beautiful sons, now college and middle school ages. My big photography regret from when they were little is that I never had a beautiful portrait photographed of me with my sons. Back then, it never even occurred to me that later in life I would like to have something like this to look back on. Not only would it have been wonderful to capture their tiny noses, chubby cheeks, and sweet innocence while they were still young, but I’ll be vain and honest here: It would have been wonderful to have a portrait of me at my prime, feeling beautiful, youthful, and happy cuddling the people that matter most in my life. I blinked and they were grown.
I also believe that photos like these are important for kids to see so they are reminded for decades to come how much their mother's eyes lit up when she looked at them. A fine portrait is a daily reminder of the love and joy in your home and a lifetime investment that will be a wonderful gift for your children's children.
Children may forget what you say, but they'll never forget how you made them feel.
YOUR STUDIO SESSION
A FUN DAY FOR YOU AND YOUR LITTLES
Sessions are offered at the studio Monday through Friday 10am-6pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm. Saturday appointments are our highest demand day and fill up first.
Your portrait session will last about an hour depending on the number of children. There will be time for an outfit and backdrop change and you're welcome to bring several outfit options to your session. Formal gowns in solid colors that coordinate with your children's clothing are encouraged.
Pro hair and makeup are the final touches that really give your look that magazine quality, timeless wow factor. At minimum, we recommend that mom has a professional blowout and style for the shoot. When scheduling your session, be sure to allocate time for any pro services you'll be getting before heading to the studio.
The night of your photo session is a great time to schedule a special date with dad. You'll already be looking great and feeling fabulous, might as well get double duty out of your gorgeous look.

THE IMAGE REVEAL & ORDERING APPOINTMENT
FRAMED ART + PORTRAIT BOXES + ALBUMS + JEWELRY
One of the best parts of your experience is seeing your photographs for the first time. The Image Reveal and Ordering Appointment is scheduled 1-2 weeks after your portrait session and can occur at the studio or your home. The selection process is a memorable and entertaining video slideshow presentation of a curated selection of about 30 beautifully edited images. Together we select your favorites in the perfect compositions and sizes for your home as well as any gifts for family members.
Everyone who is a decision-maker in your order is welcome to be present to select the images and items that they'd like to purchase. Family members may also purchase a Gift Card on your behalf and these can be used towards your session or product purchases.
You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete.
READY TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT?
I'd be thrilled to photograph you and your little ones and create breathtaking portraits that will become your family's heirlooms. These portraits are the ultimate way to honor and celebrate Mother's or Father's Day, a birthday, a milestone, or just because. Portraits always make great gifts for grandparents or a spouse.
Studio photo sessions include a 60 minute session, magazine-quality retouching to your proofs, and separate image reveal and ordering appointment. Products are sold à la carte and there is no minimum purchase required. If you don't love it, you don't buy it!
The first step to booking a session is a quick phone call. We'll go over the basics of a photo session with me and discuss the children that will be photographed, any timelines you're working towards, wardrobe, etc. I look forward to hearing about your littles!
