For every year that our family grows, we grow giddy with excitement. A big family has always been our dream. But, with a big family, comes lots of milestones, events, and little moments of kiddos growing too fast. Luckily, Amy and I always have our cameras on us, and know how to shoot to save those precious moments.
We want that for you. We believe that every memory deserves to be preserved. We want to be there for you in both the milestones and #themomentsinbetween. We want you to have albums and scrapbooks to look back on with quality photos. We want YOU to be in those memories, not always behind the phone taking the photo.
Our favorite thing is watching clients come back to us year after year, letting us into your expanding family. We like to joke, let us into your life for a day and you'll be in our family forever. We believe in family, because after all, we are family.
It's time....to spend an hour or two with us! Wherever you want, wearing whatever makes you feel beautiful! We'll help you location scout and even outfit shop if you need advice. It's a lifestyle shoot and we're excited to be hanging out with your beautiful pregnant self.
We'll send along a handy PDF guide with tips and tricks to make it easiest on you and you'll set up a time with Amy for between 27 and 34 weeks. It's as simple as that!
For some things, a year feels like a long time. In baby years, it is NOT. They're born tiny and sweet, but before you know it, they're moving into the six month onesies you thought would be in the closet for a while. They get bigger, faster, funnier. Then suddenly it's time to plan a one year birthday party!
They are snuggly, sleepy babies when they're newborns. They're sitting up, giggling, and curious when they're six months. They're bundles of personality when they turn a year old. And you, well, that's a whole different story. You're tired, hoping to make it through each day on coffee, yoga pants and messy buns are your new fashion statement. Being a mom is a full time job.
Typically, our newborn shoots are 1-2 hours based on how many snacks, diaper blowouts, and cuddles needed. Each baby is different and they run the show at this point. Amy will send a PDF guide with helpful tips to prepare for your shoot so you don't have to think about anything. All you have to do is email us when baby has made their grand arrival to the world!
The six month and one year shoot both run about an hour max. These are lifestyle, laid back and candid. We want to capture the natural moments between you and your kiddo. Whether we go to a park or even just hang in your backyard, we're there to capture some precious moments! There's only so many angles you can get in a selfie, so let's get YOU in the photos too! Also yes, cake, donuts, anything smashable can be planned for the one year session! Again, Amy is just an email away, ready to help with planning :)
Mini sessions are quick and easy. They can be for a holiday or they can be capturing something seasonal. While we always offer a fall shoot geared towards your Christmas card, we sometimes switch it up through the year!
The one thing they all have in common? They sell out fast! We offer mini sessions only a few times a year. Sign up for the emails to be the first to know. They're offered on a first come, first serve, basis and our subscribers are given a 24 hour loyalty window before we open them to the public!
Our mini sessions may feel like a "discounted" portrait session but they are actually quite different. If you've never been to one let me share with you how we run them!
We choose the location and the props. We set the dates and the time slots. You come for 15 minutes and we get about ten photos for you. There are no redo's, even if your kiddos refuse to smile. We do the best we can but it's very specific circumstances.
We don't say this to sound harsh, but to make sure you don't set unrealistic expectations. While we've never had an unhappy mini session client, we'd hate for you to be let down because you thought you could get a full family portrait session in 15 minutes.
