Perfect for lifestyle newborn sessions with my 1300sq feet to bring your new baby and allow me to take care of the rest. I offer a full client closet of gorgeous whimsical dresses for mom, delicate and sweet pieces for baby, and even clothes for siblings of all ages/sizes.
As well as a cozy family room with toys for siblings, a lounge area, drinks, and a fully stocked changing area to care for your baby.
Still, expecting and wanting timeless and classic maternity photos to showcase your growing bump? I offer those as well- and have all the pieces you need to look your best.
I decide on location a few days before your session, although it will be in a field location in or around Springfield, MO. If you request a travel session or a specific location from my work please let me know in advance. WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS? If it is overcast, we can still shoot we may just alter the time to a little earlier, but if it is raining I will provide a few rain out dates or we can switch to studio session if family size allows. I send all locations 24 hours prior to the session, and usually not any sooner as I am always scouting new BEAUTIFUL locations for us.
My outdoor photos always happen at sunset, or occasionally sunrise. I do not shoot midday due to my style. It is often later than young toddler/babies bed times in the summer so be prepared to alter your nap schedule on your photo day if you fear your little one may be tired by sunset. Studio/Newborn sessions are ALWAYS weekdays before 3pm only.
I try to keep my family photography very natural, capturing the action as it happens, so it's lots of fun and not too much posing. I feel this will bring out the true character of your children and will also make the session more enjoyable.
Newborns get their images within 2 weeks. All other sessions could take up to 30 days. I do not guarantee sneak peeks as it slows down the turn around time for those waiting on their galleries ahead of you. Entire gallery might be the first time you see your images, but they are always worth the wait. :)
I will send you a link to view and download your photos from a site called Pixieset, which allows for high resolution downloads only. PLEASE DO NOT SCREENSHOT these they will not print or share well (fuzzy quality).
I do a mixture, choosing what I think works best for each individual photo.
Yes, I will spend some time taking some relaxed portraits of you together as a family, as this can be an important record for you too. But I spend more time letting the action happen naturally and capturing the moments as they unfold.
