Portrait Investment

Your portrait session is a unique moment; a small piece of your life captured on camera. I work with you and for you, from coordinating your outfits to choosing the perfect location and time of day. Each photo is expertly edited and you are presented with a private online gallery to view and choose your images. I hope for you to be delighted with your photos, and to adore them for many years to come.

Welcome Baby Session

60 Minute Session + 10 Digital Images

A special session for the brand-newest of babies. We come to the hospital or your home within 48 hours of birth to photograph your new family member. Capture big brother or sister meeting the baby for the first time, grandparent cuddles, and the special details in their new nursery. Babyhood is so fleeting - it's recommended to book your Welcome Baby Session at least one month before your due date.


“A photograph doesn’t feel real until it is a tangible physical object I can hold in my hand.”
– Stephen Johnson
