Photography is my passion and gives me a lot of joy. I enjoy capturing these fleeting moments--while enjoying your family and my family as well. The images I capture are priceless and I enjoy seeing your joy with your family at each stage and age.

Your photos are precious. My time as a Mom of young children is limited and fleeting as well so please allow two weeks for your images to arrive. As a wife to a doctorate graduate I know the value of your family's budget and tried to ensure you are getting the best quality photography for a competitive price.

What to wear: mothers that want to be in the photos should wear a black top and either denim pants or dark pants. The baby will likely be in their birthday suit, wearing just a diaper, a blessing outfit and one other outfit (prefer something solid either dark or light colors--putting them in too many outfits will not make the session easy on you or your baby. If there are siblings or others in the photo they should wear solid colors. {these sessions are between two and three
hours long to accommodate your baby's schedule)

 $175 for a single session and $350 for three
$25 to add a sibling/family shots 
3 months--this is the perfect time to get the little details of your little one. . . their little feet, their smile, their hands and their bellies. The love to smile and coo--just at you!

6 months--this is the moment of individuality. They are starting to figure out their bodies and are sitting and rolling. This is a fun time to capture these movements and milestones.

1 year--from the cake to maybe even walking this is a unique and priceless moment in your child's life. They are full of independance and life. This is a great time for overalls and bare feet and little dresses to show off their cute chubby features before they are lost in toddlerhood.

I do cake smash sessions, but since I have a gluten allergy I can not handle the cakes. If you would like to bring a cake and assist with some of the clean-up I would love to share in these special moments with you and your little one.
At a children session: {$150}

The session price includes:

For children older than one year they will be on the move and our goal is to capture their essence as they play and move. The studio is a wonderful setting for catching these moments as well as outdoors, it is your preference. If your sitting is in doors please bring a favorite momento you may want to be photographed with the child.

at a senior session: {$150}

This a fun, special time and a passage from childhood to adulthood. We will be taking the time to take you to different locations to capture you so please plan on some travel time. You may bring your cap and gown and or instruments you play, sport jerseys etc that show who you are. The most important thing is for you to enjoy and have fun!

At a headshots session: {$150}
These sessions are similar to senior sessions where we want to portray you in your most "natural" you while looking professional and polished. It is best to wear clothing to portray that. Dress the same as you do for business on a daily basis. . . with a little more "style" to allow your client to see who you are! Please be ready with a change of clothing if what you are wearing doesn't work well.

At a wedding: you will have several consultations to discuss your specific needs and preferences.
All packages include hi Resolution CDs with the copyright release for you to print as you would like. The photos are also available on a private (password protected) professional printing service for you and your family and friends to view and order—and they are available for an unlimited time after your photos are uploaded.
Packages may be customized for your needs and preferences.

To all my clients:

My awesome husband is nearing the end of his time as a graduate student. With that means a possible move out of the Phoenix area. I hope to keep up with any news or updates. Baby plans will be honored.
