Turning Candid moments into photographic artistry
All Right in Your Happy Place

The NEWBORN

Newborn sessions are done from the comfort of your home.   Trust me when I say, there is nothing more fabulous  than letting me come to you when you've just brought life into the world.   Cuddled up on your own bed or sofa with your  possessions weaving their way into the tapestry of your images.  It's so much more meaningful than you can even imagine, until you see it all come to life in YOUR delivered gallery.  

I hear your oppositions!  "My house isn't nice enough, it's too small, too messy.  I mean, we JUST had a baby!"  None of that matters and let me promise you that every home I've been into has been perfectly lived in for this stage of life with little ones.  I've shot in one bedroom apartments, houses undergoing renovations, not yet fully unpacked houses.  You DON'T need a magazine cover ready home.  That's so not the point of this whole thing.  I'm all about capturing you and your growing family just where you are.  I promise I know all the tricks to make all that other stuff dissolve into the background.   Or stay put when it's part of your story.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

Experience

Let's keep this whole thing easy, yeah?  

Fill out the short contact form on my website and send it on over. I make it a goal to get back to you in one business day. 

We'll schedule a brief phone call to spend a few moments getting to know each other better. I find this phone call make things all the more comfortable the day of the shoot. 

I'll walk you through my process, which is purposely streamlined to be as simple as possible. I'll answer any questions or concerns. And of course, we'll get into the nitty gritty details of pricing.

1. Say Hello

The

Process

You're ready to move forward-let's do this thing!

After our initial phone call, I email a Pricing Guide that includes the proposal to make things official. Review the guide, sign the contract, and pay the nonrefundable Session Fee. It's easy peasy-all online with just a few clicks.

Your session is now secured on my calendar!  Just reach out once your sweet babe has arrived and we will finalize the day/time of your session.

2.  sign on the dotted line

The

Process

Next up after completing this proposal, I'm going to send you my oh so helpful Session Prep Guide. It's made to take all the guesswork out of this process. The guide answers FAQ's and tells you what to do to prepare. Don't worry, you don't have to do much. It also gives some helpful advice on picking out what to wear-one of the most stressful parts of any photo session. I've been there, I get it!  

Now to REALLY take the wardrobe selection process up a notch, all client's have access to a Personalized Styling Service. Fill out a brief questionnaire about who you are dressing, your style, and your preferred color palettes and get specific coordinated outfit suggestions (with links to actual items!) for each member of your family. Not wanting to buy new clothes? Use the suggestions as inspiration to shop your closet. BOOM.

The

Process

The day has come! We meet at the agreed upon location-usually your home or a fabulous outdoor spot.  

We've already chatted on the phone, so we kinda feel like good friends already.

I'll come prepared with plenty of prompts and shot ideas that will be oh so flattering. If you've got kiddos participating in the session, I have all sorts of tricks up my sleeve to make it fun and engaging for them and to capture your family's raw love and connection.

You get to just relax and enjoy yourself. No stressing about your kiddos-I've seen it all. Your job is to just keep smiling and love on your new addition.

The

Process

2-3 weeks after the session, I'll send over a your fully edited gallery slideshow for you to "ohh and ahhh" over. Prepare for some emotional moments!!

Now that you've fallen in love with your images, you have 24 hours to decide which Collection to purchase. Don't stress though-you're just choosing the Collection level immediately. You have 1 month to select the individual images you'll keep forever as part of that Collection and deciding how you'll spend your print credit. Remember-all Collections come with a certain number of digital images and a particular $ amount print credit.  

Now get that artwork up on your walls and that album on your coffee table to enjoy! We're not going to let your investment languish unseen in the digital void!

Working with Kate for our newborn session in our home was like visiting with a good friend. Kate clearly and confidently directed our poses and positioning, which is invaluable as new parents just getting the hang of things. Kate’s warmth and calm demeanor allowed me to feel comfortable nursing in front of the camera. We love the images she was able to capture of our growing family and will cherish them forever!

Working with Kate was phenomenal. Anyone with kids know getting them to cooperate for photos can be a challenge! She made the process stress-free. She rolled with what the little ones needed, found ways to engage them and keep them interested. She has a kind, empathetic nature that put everyone at ease. I think some of the improvised moments created some of the best photos. We are very happy with our experience!

It was a fantastic experience inviting Kate into our home to help us capture the memories of our newborn. Despite being exhausted and our house being a mess, Kate ensured that our photos turned out their best. Both her demeanor and final product were highly professional. We are so grateful that she helped us capture these fleeting moments as our newborn quickly grows up.
