Here at CKP we want you to feel relaxed and in great hands!  All that is due to book is a non-refundable $35 retainer.  This retainer will be "returned" as an order credit, and will be taken off of your order placed.  


Birth and travel sessions are excluded and will be charged accordingly.





Maternity session are the perfect time to capture such a joyous moment in your life, where you become three (if this is your first child), or adding in a sibling!

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!

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!


Birth Sessions are $599 and include your consultation to discuss what to expect, your actual birth (I am there generally for a total of 4 hours, however you may add on time if you decide you need to do so),  set of 25 birth announcements, and ordering appointment.  No prints nor digitals come with your session fee.



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!

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.

Baby Milestone

Chubby fingers, little feet, the essence of your baby growing is exactly what Milestone sessions are about!

Milestones that are recommended are either 3-4 month or 6-8 months old.  This captures true essence of your babies milestones.  Between 3-4 months they are doing tummy time well, and have found their hands.  Between 6-8 months they are sitting up, can clap, and have so much personality!  Baby Milestones are photographed either studio or on location.

Cake Smashes

Cake Smashes are completely customizable with a style/theme that is geared towards your little ones first birthday!  Wardrobe is provided for the cake, along with a custom cake of your choice!  I recommend you bring two other outfits to have baby photographed in first.  After your baby is done "smashing", I have a little clawfoot tub for a sweet little cleanup, and to add some great shots to your images!

Simply one is for one year olds whose parents do not wish to do a cake.  You are allowed to bring one outfit, or you can select from my studio wardrobe.  This is for studio sessions only, and available for booking Monday-Friday.

Family/Senior Sessions

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.
