More updates on my recent sessions to come. You guys have for sure kept me very busy lately!

(Thank you!)


Spunky Miss Quinn

I recently had Quinn in the studio! I joked on my instagram account that spunky is code for wouldn't fall asleep. And hey, who can blame her? All those bright lights and posing, hard stuff on a one month old. 

That said, she was such a sweetheart, and her mama was super helpful! Seriously, she made me daydream about hiring an assistant! Click through Quinn gallery to see some photos of her session.

Fresh 48 & Newborn Pricing!

Before we get to the Fresh 48 session  - Just a remainder that newborn package and fresh 48 prices are increasing in August. Book before July 31 to save!

I was blessed to get a call to come to the hospital just hours after this little guy was born. Such a treasure! I also loved seeing the glowing parents loving on their little man. Click through the gallery below.

These sessions are my absolute favorite!  Don't forget - you can bundle Fresh 48 with Maternity or Newborn packages to get a discount of $50. 

Blacklights!

Wanna try something fun? Please let me know! This was an add-on to the session posted before this. So a nice and neat outdoor session, followed by paint galore! So much fun. Click through the gallery.

Outside Portrait Session - Victoria

Once again, I had a hard time choosing which photos to highlight from this session.

If you've had a session with me, then you know I like to do outdoor portraits right around golden hour, which is usually about 7PM in the summer. It gives that nice golden glow and haze associated with summer, but it's also great light to take pictures in (not harsh). Click through to see my favourites from this session!

Want pictures of yourself but can't really justify the price? Head over to this page to find out how you can save so it doesn't end up being a splurge. In fact you can do it a few times a year ;)

Newborn Studio Session - Claire

 Will you just look at this sweetheart?

Claire had a mix of posed and lifestyle. Don't forget we can always work on customized package that works for you. Click through the gallery below for more from her session. I had a really hard time narrowing it down to the highlights!

Neon Light - Portrait Session

Have I told you I love creative portraits? On my home page I say that if you come to me with a creative idea that I haven't tried before, you just may luck into a discount! If you are hesitant because you don't want to 'waste' a session with themed photos, don't worry, I work in some non - themed ("normal") ones as well. 

On to the session! Since it needed to be somewhat dark for the neon lights, we did some fun photos in my studio window and on the studio couch. I think they turned out pretty great!

As soon as the sun started going down, we started doing out neon light pictures.

Did you notice the GRL PWR reflection? 

Once again, come to me with your creativity.

Isla's Lifestyle Session - In Studio! + lifestyle session advice!

With my first (and second) kid, I really toyed with the idea of doing a lifestyle session. I just really love those candid photos! Two things held me back.

1 - I also really wanted the posed newborn photos.

2 - My house. I had never gotten around to decorating it the way I wanted. It was pretty dingy and had the world's smallest windows. Plus who really wants to have to worry about having the house clean for a photographer? 

The first is easy to address - If you would like a mix of both, let me know and I can create a custom package for you! I totally understand what it's like to want both.

Next, if you are holding back for any reason I listed (or maybe something I didn't) there are so many solutions! If you truly don't want to do it at your place, ask a relative or friend if you can use theirs, or as you will see below, come do it in my studio! I have a couple different setups for a lifestyle session. If you are worried about cleaning, please don't. I've been a new mom and I know what's going on at this stage. If anything, I can help you move some things off night stands or dresser tops to get those nice minimalist images, and then put everything back. 

Truly don't be afraid to ask for the photo shoot you want. This is your investment, and I want to help you make it happen!

Now on to the session! Baby Isla's parents really wanted a lifestyle session, but not in home. So we did it in my studio! I must say, I think they turned out wonderfully. Click on the photos to scroll through!

This was one spunky little 11 day old and I had so much fun with her session!

Newborn Styling Consultation - What to Expect

Hey all! I've been meaning to post pictures of the studio, but it's in chaos as I've had several newborn sessions in a row. 

Instead I'll talk about what you can expect from a newborn consultation - truth be told, there's not too much to it. 

First I go over any colors you would like to see in your shoot - any bright tones and also what sorts of neutrals you would like to see - greys, whites, beiges. These can be incorporated in a number of ways. 

Next I will ask if you would like any props in your shoot aside from the usual wraps, bonnets, and baskets. Does your family love a certain sport? Character? Tv show? We can definitely work that into the session. If you also have an heirloom item you would like to see in the photos let me know that as well. (mom's veil, a special blanket, etc)

 Lastly I go over which setups you would like. Depending which package you chose, it can range anywhere from 2-5 setups. (also depending on baby's mood!) I don't count family and sibling shots as a setup, they are included, but please do inform me if there are siblings and their age. 

That's it! Not too hard, eh? For lifestyle and fresh 48 newborn sessions, there's not really any styling involved so we skip the consultation on those, but I do have information packets to send to you so you don't feel completely in the dark. Do you think anything else should be covered? Let me know!
