Before the Session

I want to learn a bit more about you and what type of session you envision.  There are so many choices to have fun with. We'll talk about clothes, locations, your family, and perhaps share in some humor too. I'm a mother so we can perhaps share a joke or two. NJ offers so many location choices, parks, the Delaware River areas, the shore, historical landmarks and urban areas. Or the comfort of your own home.

During the Session

I use natural light and being in the great outdoors is great when the weather allows it. Sessions take place in local parks or a favorite outdoor area. NJ and PA offers so many location choices, parks, farms, the Delaware River areas, the shore, historical landmarks and urban areas. Or the comfort of your own home. You'll see me get down on kid's levels(this is why I dress in clothes that can clean easily) and make them create silly faces and have fun to make children feel more comfortable. I do this with some adults too, it works! Sessions take about an hour or two, but this all depends on everyone. Sometimes it may be quicker if a baby looses interest or closer to two hours if a child needs more time to warm up. Newborn sessions can take even longer with breaks for feeding, or changing.

After the Session

After the session is over, you can take it easy. In about one to two weeks an online gallery of only the very best images will be ready for you to review. I offer in person or online ordering, whichever fits your schedule. If you choose to meet in person you will have the chance to see and hold samples of some of the products we offer. You can see how an 8x10 or 16x24 looks on the wall. If that doesn't work for your schedule, I can assist in helping you order online over the phone. Your online gallery is available for just five days so we will work together to pick a time that works for you.  All images are copyrighted, and it is illegal to save or print them from your gallery. No worries, you will receive a watermarked digital "web-sized" watermarked images of each image you order. This means you can post them on Facebook, your blog, and email, but cannot edit  them or print them.

Are expecting or just had a baby?

I am currently looking to add to my newborn portfolio. All babies must be 10 days or younger at the time of the session. Session is completely free and includes three free gift sized prints (up to 8x10) of your favorite images as well as 3 digital "web-sized" watermarked images. Since I am looking to add specific things to my portfolio these sessions will be shorter than a typical newborn session and will include a smaller gallery as well, or, if you prefer, we can do a full session at a reduced rate. Contact me for further details.
