**It is highly recommended to BOOK your Newborn session months in advance to ensure a spot on my calendar, however, if you find yourself late in the game, please contact me if your little one is under 3 weeks old. It is best to shoot within 16 days of birth.**
What’s included: Newborn sessions not only will we get those adorable curled-up precious images, but I always include parent and sibling shots with these sessions if desired.
I have ALL of the Newborn Props and Accessories – everything you see in my portfolio is mine from A-Z so no need to provide anything unless you desire something personal.
Newborn sessions usually take about 3-4 hours. Let’s be real, even though these little bundles of joy just arrived, they’re running the show! Patience is key with these sessions, and breaking for feedings is almost always necessary to keep baby happy, calm, and sleepy. Shooting this session within the first 16 days of life is ideal! The longer we push it out the harder they are to get in those adorable little poses.

Maternity + Family
What’s included: This session typically lasts 1-1.5 hours and is for Mama and Family.
Maternity + Family Portrait sessions are available for mamas who would like to capture the entire gang in their Maternity photos and also document their growing belly. I like to split the session by doing individual photos of just Mama, Parents only, the entire family, Mama and the kids, Siblings only, and as always the DETAILS (my favorite). These sessions will take place either in your home or at an outdoor location.
** Maternity Session can only be booked with a Newborn Session
**Digital Collections start at $350
What’s included: (I recommend booking this session before your third trimester to ensure a spot on my calendar. This session typically lasts 45 – 60 mins. This session is taken in Hospital after baby has been born, typically the day after depending on arrival time. This gives mom some time to freshen up and relax and often captures siblings’ first meeting. This session can also capture babies first bath if you choose to delay and coordinate that for my arrival. It’s amazing how much baby will change from day one and two to week one and two. Much of the session is focused on the baby, the fresh details of baby and the love between the family and siblings. These sessions can be tailored to capture whatever you choose. I typically bring a few items such as wraps and simple accessories for some variety but for the most part capture them, as they are, fresh and new.
** Fresh 48 Session has only one package and that is $650 for the session and all digital images

Newborn Lifestyle Session
** The Newborn stage usually refers to a baby from birth to about 2 months of age, since these sessions aren’t posed booking between this time frame is recommended.**
What’s included: The setup for this session will be neutral and focused on baby. I have gorgeous bassinets and blankets I will bring along that we can use to tell your story. Parent and sibling shots ARE included and encouraged with these lifestyle sessions and are usually captured on parents’ bed, cozy couch, or chair.
This session type is perfect for the family looking to capture more relaxed and unposed shots of this special time in their life. Lifestyle sessions usually take up to 1-2 hours and Breaking for feedings might still be necessary during these sessions to keep baby happy so we make time for that if needed.

What’s included: Family Portrait sessions are available outdoors at one of our gorgeous Portland areas year-round in between the PNW rainy days.
