Pool Sessions $500
The first time I ever dunked my camera underwater I was completely hooked. As photographer's we're light chasers and storytellers. Light behaves so differently underwater, it's elusive, but magical. These sessions are a fun way to get a different kind of portrait of your kids!
Investment in this session starts at $500 and includes 1.5 hours of shooting, approximately 10-15 edited images. Additional time can be purchased.
Sessions can take place either at my home or your own pool. Finding the best light can be tricky, so planning ahead is a must when it comes to scheduling our time together.
Through my own personal experiences, and over a decade of being a birth photographer, one of the most challenging and soul stretching periods of motherhood are the months immediately following the birth of your child. Often times pregnant mothers are doted on, tummies are rubbed, doors are opened for you, baby showers are held. Then suddenly the baby’s here and you’re tired, you’re bleeding, you’re leaking from places you didn’t know possible, and yet even with amazing families and support systems you can still feel surprisingly alone. But it's also a time of great intimacy, personal growth, bonding with you baby, resting, and finding your new normal. These sessions help freeze in time the beautiful chaos that is postpartum. It's gone in an instant, but it forever moulds who we become as mothers.
Sessions take place over 2 hours. These sessions are ideal for new moms with babies under 6 months. A simple questionnaire will be provided to help me better understand what aspects of your postpartum experience you want to celebrate as well as those you wish to shine the light on and educate others.
Becoming a mother changed the way I saw the world, it changed how I saw through my lens, it changed WHAT I saw, and what I saw to be important.
The desire to capture life, as it's happening. Real. Life. Not posed, polished, shiny, and pretty life. But the powerful, gritty, soul shaking beauty of real life.
What does real life family look like in a family photojournalism session? What are the things that 20 years from now you don't ever want to forget?
The shoot is unposed, un-choreographed, and unscripted: Your family depicted as authentically as possible. The sessions start off with a few posed family photos to break the ice and make everyone comfortable with me being there, and then we move into the documentary portion of the shoot. This allows the added bonus of 1-2 traditional family photos, within your documentary session.
DAY IN THE LIFE: PHOTOS ONLY:
Snippet : $650
50+ images + approx 2 hrs. During this session we are able to capture a 2-3 hours of your favorite time of day. Are lazy Saturday mornings, snuggled on the couch watching cartoons your jam? Or maybe cooking a yummy breakfast together, before heading out to the park? Maybe you guys are night owls, prefer building forts in the living room, only to tear them down with a pillow fight, followed by bedtime stories. Whatever time of day it might be, let me be there to capture it in all it's perfectness. This season of your lives only happens for a finite and fleeting moment! (Add on slideshow option a la cart for $500)
Half Day $850
100+ images + approx 4-5 hours. In this half day session we aim to capture an accurate representation for a majority of your day. I do allow splitting the time we shoot to accommodate for kids being away at school, or I can continue shooting what your day looks like without them. (Add on slideshow option a la cart for $600)
A DAY IN THE LIFE: $1200
200+ images + approx 6-8 hours + slideshow included. From the time you wake up until the lights go out. Location to be determined based on what your uniquely "you" day looks like. I am there before the alarm goes off in the morning, to make sure I get those adorable bed-head babes as they stumbled out of their room, and go on to conquer their day. I basically hang out with you, preferably like and old friend, a fly on the wall, while you go about your day. You can plan our shoot around specific special events in your lives, or my favorite... your mundanely, perfect, beautiful, everyday.
