Kids grow up so fast, it’s hard to remember what they were like even a few months ago! I make family sessions fun, without the stress of having to pose perfectly or spend hours in front of the camera. 

And when you’re expecting a new baby, I’m here to help you remember this special moment in time – right before your little one comes into the world. Life will change in the blink of an eye, but your photos will be a timeless reminder of each perfect memory.

Your big moments in life deserve to be preserved in your memory and passed down for generations.

I believe that having photographic memories is the only way to truly remember special moments in life. I love working with families and moms-to-be to make sure you have your own treasured memories that show your family’s emotions and unique personalities. I’m a pro at helping everyone (yes, even toddlers!) feel comfortable and relaxed in front of my camera.

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

Babies don’t always arrive on schedule, so I recommend booking between 30-34 weeks. You’ll have a beautiful bump for your photos, but should have plenty of time before any surprise arrivals!

WHEN SHOULD I PLAN MY MATERNITY SHOOT?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

Family sessions are based on a starting point of 4 family members. The price will increase $30 per person after that.

HOW DOES YOUR FAMILY SESSION PRICING WORK?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

Trust me, you don’t want to worry about changing your kids into new outfits on location! We stick with one outfit option to maximize the number of photos we can get for your session. If you want different backgrounds, we can always choose a location that will give us options for changing it up!

DO WE GET OUTFIT CHANGES?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

Tiny babies grow quickly, so I recommend booking your lifestyle newborn shoot when your baby is 2-14 days old.

WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SHOOT?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

Delivering galleries to clients is one of the best parts of my job! You can expect your fully edited gallery two weeks after your shoot.

When will I get my photos back?

Maternity Session Questions

You need a custom headshot that communicates more than, “I know how to look professional.”

Whether you’re actively looking for a new job, want to update your LinkedIn profile, or need a headshot for a publication or marketing materials – we’ll capture your personality, professionalism, and value in a professional portrait.

Headshots

book your Headshot session

HEADSHOT SESSIONS STARTING AT $400

Your headshot should be more than a staged, fake smile and a nice suit. I believe portraits can be professional and personality-filled. One of my best talents is helping you feel confident in front of the camera, which will come through in headshots you (and your future new boss) will love!

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

I recommend 2-3 outfits. You’ll probably want one to be a professional outfit – like what you’d wear to an interview – and one or two business casual outfits.

How many outfits can I choose for my headshots?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

You can choose your location! If you don’t have a specific spot in mind, I’m happy to recommend some of my favorite headshot locations.

Where will these headshots be taken?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

I don’t include hair and makeup in my packages, but I do recommend the best hair & makeup artist around. And I do suggest having your hair and makeup done professionally. Headshots are often pretty close-up, so those professional details matter.

Do you provide hair and makeup?

Another Question? I’ve Got Answers!

A headshot is more than a closeup of your face. This photo should reflect your confidence and personality, which is hard to do without a professional. Your headshot is the version of you that the professional world sees first – you want to make a good first impression.

Why do I need a professional headshot? Can’t I just take one on my phone?

We had a maternity shoot and then a family shoot after our daughter was born. The experience was wonderful and the photos are perfect to hold onto these memories for a lifetime!

We have had two sessions with Schwalbs Photography now and Justin was amazing!
