I love photographing Mamas-to-be. Usually shooting between 35-37 weeks is best before you get too uncomfortable and don't really feel like doing anything other than watching the clock and waiting for baby to arrive. I shoot both on location or in the comforts of your home. Children are always welcome to attend these sessions. They are a part of this journey too and this new little life will have a profound impact on their worlds from the moment he or she arrives. As with most of my sessions, sometimes the unposed shots tend to be my favorite. A quiet moment between parents-to-be, a child talking to Mama or patting her tummy, or even just you sitting in the rocking chair in the baby's room where you'll be spending many many long nights snuggling your little one. All of these things are what this time is about. Waiting for baby and capturing those moments before your family grows by one (or more!).
My goal as your birth photographer is for you not even know that I'm in the room. I know how special this time is for you as a couple and as a family, and these moments are about YOU and the beautiful journey your baby makes as you welcome them to the world. I'll capture all the details you request and stay as long as you like after delivery. From the clock on the wall, to your room number and monitor, to the warming bed for baby and all the way until it's "go time" I'll be there freezing these moments for you to look back on. As a Mama myself and having had our daughter's birth photographed, I can tell you that these images will bring back all the memories of bringing that sweet life into your arms and if you're like me, you might even cry as you look through the images every now and again. ;)

Fresh 48 photography is a session for those new families who want the first few hours or days of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. I will come to your place of birth within 48 hours. This will just be me capturing your baby’s first hours of life in a fresh natural way!
Those teeny tiny toes, those delicate little hands, that poochie little mouth, a slumbered smile!
I encourage you to allow me to photograph your baby within the first 10-12 days of his/her life. They are so precious, tiny and perfect and it’s best to capture these first moments of life when they are sleepy and cuddly. All of my posed newborn sessions are held in my studio in Longmont. I know how tiring andoverwhelming the first few days at home with a little one can be so I invite you to attend your session and relax, kick your feet up, enjoy some "alone time" and enjoy watching your new bundle of joy captured through my eyes. I willprovide all props, blankets, pillows, hats, etc., but please feel free to suggest other items you might like touse. This time is so very special to your family and I want it to be just what you envision!
I also offer lifestyle newborn sessions and will come to your home. If a more laid back and relaxed type session is what you're looking for then this is the session for you. I'll capture your family complete with your new addition. No props or posing, just you holding and enjoying admiring your little love.
Because they're only this little once and every new tooth, every sweet giggle, every first and even every serious stare into the camera is a priceless one when it's your baby...
One Year Milestone
You made it! 12 whole months! By now the sleepless nights have started to taper (hopefully), your little one's personality is blossoming more each day and you almost feel like you've got a handle on this whole parenting thing! Whew! Now it's time to capture all those cute little things they do so you can look back years from now and see how much they've grown and changed in that first year. This is one of my favorite ages to photograph by far. Giggles, smirks, sweet smiles and even a little attitude make it SO much fun!
Sometimes the best moments are ones that are unplanned and photographed when you least expect it. There's no need for perfect posing to capture an amazing photo. If your little one(s) likes to run around, play with sticks, blow bubbles or even sit and give me a pouty toddler face here and there, then so be it! I'll work around them and with you to create the experience you're looking for! No need to stress out trying to make your child smile or look at the camera (sometimes that can work against us). I like to let children get to know me before I start shooting so they're comfortable with me from the beginning. Let's face it, a stranger hiding behind a big lens would be a little intimidating upon a first meeting for anyone! I'll talk with you and your children before the shoot so that everyone is relaxed and ready to have FUN! A timeless photo to me is one which is unscripted. We can definitely get any posed shots you are hoping for, but it is my goal to capture the uniqueness of your children and to focus on their personality so that when you look back on these photos you'll be able to smile and think "remember when she/he used to do....". I want my photographs to tell YOUR story!
You're graduating! And you should celebrate! My Senior sessions are about thinking outside the box and creating a look for you that you want to show off to all your friends (and ones your parents and grandparents will love too! :) ) This time in your life is all about YOU! Have a location in mind where you'd like to shoot? Let's go check it out! Maybe an outfit that you've been dying to wear, but just can't find the right place to where it TO? How about for your Senior photos? Interested in a themed shoot? Having your best friend come along for a few pictures as well? We can do that! FUN, FRESH and FABULOUS! That's what I want to create for you! We'll create some stunning and FUN pictures that reflect YOU as a Senior!
I provide three Collections to best fit your needs for your Senior photos! It can be hard to choose which photo to choose for your yearbook photo, and it's also hard for Mom and Dad to choose their favorites when there are only certain sizes and quantities provided in a package. In order to give you what I feel is the best deal and price for your Senior portraits, two of my signature Collections offer a CD complete with a print release to eliminate the process of trying to narrow down your favorites. This way you receive the images you love AND can choose which sizes and how many you want of each photo! You'll have the digital files to share and print for other family members as well! It's a win-win! If you'd rather just go with a regular Senior Collection which comes with prints, I have that available as well. Additional prints may always be added on if you need more!
My Collections include your session, editing time, photographer's experience and everything listed below for one price!
Session Yearbook photo 48 wallets (6 poses) 20 digital images on CD with print release 3 wardrobe changes (one location)
~ Senior Portrait Collection III $650 ~
Session Yearbook photo 64 wallets (8 poses) 30 or more digital images on CD with print release 8x8 Layflat album of 20 of your favorite Senior photos 3 Mini Accordian albums (great for Grandparents!) 3 wardrobe changes (two locations within same town)
*Half of package due at the time of booking to hold your date ~ Remainder due the day your session takes place. Shipping and tax not included. A small travel fee will be applied to travel outside the Longmont/Boulder area.
