Newborn Sessions

Posed Studio

These take place in my Mechanicsville studio typically within the first couple weeks of birth. I have all of the wraps, hats, headbands and props you’ll need for your brand new baby. Plus, our stylist Jammie Baker can help with curating your family’s wardrobe for the session

In-home Lifestyle

This naturalistic type of session takes place in your home. We can utilize any area with good natural light. Our stylist Jammie Baker can help you choose a wardrobe that will compliment your personal style and home.

Fresh 48

Those first 48 hours are something special. These sessions take place in the hospital and capture the freshest of newborn details. Stylist Jammie Baker is available to help style these sessions. They’re a great way to capture your baby’s first moments of life.

Let's tell the story of this season of life

FAmily Sessions

Full Family

Family sessions last about an hour and can take place at a location of your choice. Stylist Jammie Baker works with you to curate a cohesive wardrobe for your session. Family sessions come with a digital gallery of at least 40 images in color and black/white.

Micro Family

This is a budget-friendly way to update your family photos. These shorter sessions, shot by our associate photographer and edited to match my current work, include 10 digital images in color and black/white. Inquire for specific locations and dates.

Maternity

These are a great way to document the beautiful days leading up to the birth of your child. We can add a discounted maternity session onto any newborn session package, or you can purchase a maternity session as a standalone. Our stylist Jammie Baker can help take the guesswork out of finding the perfect dress and family wardrobe to coordinate.

These are the perfect way to celebrate a birthday or capture a milestone.

MILestone sessions

Milestone Session

These minimalistic sessions can be done indoors at our Mechanicsville studio or outdoors and include a digital gallery of at least 10 images in color and black/white. In the studio, we use a white or neutral backdrop to capture the essence of your child in the most classic way possible.

Cake Smash

These sessions are done in our Mechanicsville studio on classic, neutral backdrops with minimal props. Parents provide the cake and are encouraged to bring 1-2 outfits for images before the actual smash. These sessions include a gallery of at least 25 images in color and black/white.

First Year

Schedule any two milestone sessions in the first year of your baby’s life and get the third free of charge. Want a family session or cake smash instead of a milestone at the end of the first year?
