Expectant momma's are best photographed between 27-36 weeks, when there's a nice round belly to show off.  These sessions are conducted either on location or studio, the choice is up to you!  our main goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and beautiful!  I have maternity gowns on hand, along with multiple fabrics to use to create beautiful portraits, however if you have something in mind we can both work together to make your session perfect!

Birth


Arriving at the hospital, nervous jitters of welcoming your new baby soon, lots of love, and work go into capturing such a beautiful entrance into this world!  Birth is a beautiful thing that is so special for me to be apart of and witness!  

I will come to the hospital once active labor starts and you have reached 7 cm dilated.  I am with you until baby is earthside and goes through his/her first everything!  I capture the first latch, first bath (if you opt for a bath), footprints, weight, and measurements.  Not only am I photographing everything, I also catch video as well.  This is such a momentous time in your life to remember and cherish those first cries and more!

Fresh 48

Your baby is here and in your arms finally!  Those little details, warm creamy skin, and sweet sleepy vibes are something to remember!  Baby meeting family for the first time, and just remembering little details that will soon fade away.

With Fresh 48, I arrive at the hospital within 48 hours after baby being born, sometimes it can be the same day if you are up to it, or the next day after a wee bit of rest from all the work you just did!

Session fee is $149.  This includes your consultation to discuss what to expect, travel up to 45 minutes from my studio (I travel to Enterprise and both Dothan hospitals, anything outside of my area, there will be a .55 cent per mile fee), 45 minute Hospital session, and your ordering appointment.  No prints nor digitals come with your session fee.

 

Newborn

Newborns are best photographed before they are 14 days old so we can optimize their sleepiest time. Babies are considered newborn 4 weeks or less, however keep in mind the older they are the more alert they become. These sessions take place in my studio, located in Downtown Dothan, Alabama. Newborn sessions focus on family, sibling, and just baby. Our goal is to capture those sweet curly shots!  I have an ever-growing prop collection so you don't need to bring anything, but if there is a special heirloom or something that means a lot to your family I am happy to try to include it.

Milestones

Family

Family sessions are such a great time to capture your family just as it is today.  No worries on forced smiles, as we will do a few posed shots, however most of the time it will be tickles and snuggles!

Family sessions take place outdoors and is best done during the warmer months (thankfully for living in Alabama that is almost all year round)!  My goal is to help keep the session fun and to make everyone's smiles come out naturally. My favorite time of day to photograph outside during the "Golden Hour" as photographers call it, which is generally 1 hour prior to sunset.
