a client's guide


Thank you SO much for your interest in maternity and newborn photography! It means the world to me that you have included me in your consideration process. 

Above all, I want to make sure that my clients are completely happy with their session and images. Sometimes, clients are better served by another type of photographer, and although it's always hard to pass on an opportunity to work with an amazing client, I feel strongly that it's in the best interest of everyone to get connected with the photographer that best matches their needs and style preferences.

So, let's get to know each other! I'd love to see if we are a fit!

Style Preferences

My photography style is very light, bright, and airy. I love to do both outdoor and indoor photo sessions with lots of natural light and glow. Aside from some slight retouching and adjusting on my images, I keep things very natural and true-to-life for my clients.

The images you see here are just a few representations of typical maternity and lifestyle newborn sessions.


Something noteworthy about how I approach newborn photography is simply that I choose to focus on capturing lifestyle newborn images. This means that, although "posed" newborn studio sessions are adorable (and they so are!), I instead capture the relationships between baby and mom / dad. There will be plenty of shots with baby alone, but these shots capture baby in his / her natural state and do not involve a lengthy process of outfit changes, posing baby into various positions, etc. To learn more about the difference between traditional, posed newborn photos and lifestyle newborn photography, check out this blog post.

There are so many different photography styles (light and airy, dark and moody, bold and bright colors) and so many varieties of sessions. The beautiful thing about photography is that each image evokes emotion and captures something special to those who are receiving the images. So no matter what your photography preference is, you'll want to make sure you select a photographer that fits with YOUR preferences. You want to love your photos, and your photographer should love them too! I stay true to my photography and editing style, so if you're loving the images you see on this page, then we may be a great fit for one another! Please contact me with any questions you may have.

* You love light, bright, and airy images

* You love to see natural images that look beautifully true-to-life

* You love that lifestyle newborn sessions (vs posed, studio sessions) capture the sweetness of baby and mom / dad
