Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home, so you can kick off your shoes and refill your coffee cup as many times as you need.
Sessions last up to 90 minutes to allow for any breaks that might be needed. From feedings to fixing unexpected wardrobe malfunctions (we all know blowouts aren't just reserved for truck tires); your smallest family member calls the shots.
You'll be gently guided into comfortable positions and I'll help you engage authentically with one another so you get photos that help you see your true selves. Your baby's safety is always key, so there's no unnatural posing, and if the only thing your babe wants is to be held, that's perfectly fine!
The small moments of your every day life are absolutely worth celebrating. A documentary session takes those moments and puts them through a storytelling lens giving you a chance to see how amazingly full your life truly is - without doing anything out of the ordinary. Want to spend the day at home? Let's do it! Feel like walking to your neighborhood playground? You lead, and I'll follow! Heading out for your weekly farmers market? I'm so game & can even hold your canvas tote!
Our phones are incredibly handy at taking photos at the drop of a hat, but there's always one thing missing - you! When my grandmother passed away, my mother was left with only a handful of photos with her own mom. It made me wake up and realize that everyday life deserves to be remembered in a physical way. It's why it's so much fun to go back home and look through old family photo albums and reminisce about the time someone tried to cut their own bangs (you're not alone. I did it, too); or the birthday party at the petting zoo where a goat tried to eat your clothes. So, give your family that gift with a two hour Slice of Life documentary family session.
Just your love that you've built day in and day out.
While 30 minute mini lifestyle family sessions take place on location, your 60 minute full lifestyle family session can take place in your home or in one of the many beautiful, fun locations around the Austin & surrounding area. Not in the Austin area? I'm always up for a trip!
These sessions show off your connection and genuine love as a family, not how long you can stand in one pose and smile at the camera. Lifestyle sessions a filled with tons of candid moments sprinkled with tickle fights, rock paper scissors, and calling out who has the smelliest feet. Don't worry - we'll also get those quieter moments that may be rare but are so precious.
Worried about kiddos not staying still for the pictures? No problem! If there's one thing being a teacher for two years taught me it's that sitting still can be a totally foreign concept for little ones. Leave it to me, and you'll get photos that are as full of life as the kids.
