family portraiture

Life is a tapestry of connections, moments, and experiences. The big milestones stand out in our memories, yet the little moments—small but sweet daily occurrences—weave the masterpiece together. The early years of family life are a whirlwind of excitement. Together, you’ll face many ups and downs, take challenges head-on, and enjoy the sweet simplicity of childhood. After all, is there anything better than watching a baby discover cake on their first birthday? Or witnessing your baby’s first steps? And oh, what a joy it is to watch how excited they get over something as ordinary as dollar-store bubbles!

But you know all too well that this stage doesn’t last. In the blink of an eye, you’re moving on to the next exciting phase, filled with its own milestones and fun. That’s why it’s so important to capture each chapter together. While we wish we could remember it all to cherish forever, memories fade as time goes on. Thankfully, photography allows us to document the story one chapter at a time to look back on how far we’ve come!

Don’t miss these moments. Make it a priority to document them while you can through family portraiture. As a mama of two fast-growing kiddos, I can guarantee you’ll never regret making time for family photos. Whenever you look up at that chubby-cheeked face hanging on the wall, everything else seems to fade away. Family is what matters most, and I would love to help you capture precious family portraits—from pregnancy through childhood—that will last a lifetime and beyond! 

What is a Bump to Baby Package?

Starting or adding to your family is a huge deal (and I know it comes with major challenges for some)! In fact, this phase includes multiple milestones: pregnancy, birth, and the first year. We know how important it is to document every part, so we’ve created a Bump to Baby Membership to make it even easier.

The membership makes things as seamless and easy for you. With a membership, you’ll have:

1. Guaranteed appointments (book in advance)

2. Priority booking

3. Discounts for booking multiple sessions

Types of Portraits in the Bump to Baby Package

Wondering when and where to schedule portraits? Every family is different, and I’m flexible! But here are some of the most common milestones families choose for their family portraiture:

1. Maternity Portraits

Maternity portraits are some of my absolute favorite sessions to do! I just love photographing that beautiful maternity glow, the excitement and love on couples’ faces, and of course, the sweet bump.

Plus, I get to offer a day of pampering for the expecting mama. I have a large (and ever-growing!) collection of couture gowns to choose from. They all photograph beautifully while perfectly accentuating the bump.

And, I’ve partnered up with two incredibly talented hair and makeup artists who will help you feel more confident and highlight your natural beauty—and you don’t have to lift a finger! (I know, trying to do your hair and makeup during those last few weeks is exhausting!)

2. Lifestyle Newborn Portraits (at hospital or home)

Once their bundle of joy arrives, some families prefer lifestyle portraits taken at the hospital or in the comfort of your home. I work with a fantastic associate lead photographer to safely and beautifully capture these first few days after birth.

*Availability for this option is subject to change due to pandemic and hospital protocols. Get in touch with us to learn more.

3. Studio Newborn Portraits

For professional themed or styled newborn images, we can head to the studio for adorable closeups of those tiny fingers and toes. From whimsical backdrops to simple and classic, we can’t wait to help you capture those precious sleepy smiles! Parents and siblings are welcome to join in, too!

4. Sibling Portraits 

Sibling bonds change and grow throughout the years, and these are more of my favorite portraits to do. Seeing tiny siblings with their arms around each other or a big sibling bending down to kiss a younger sibling’s cheek is priceless.

5. Family Portraits with the Newest Addition

Maternity and newborn portraits are so very special, but don’t forget to update your family portraits, too! Now that your family has grown, schedule a session with the newest member in tow.

6. First Year Milestone Portraits

Isn’t it amazing how quickly babies grow and develop during that first year? In a matter of months, your tiny tot goes from zero neck control to getting into everything. There’s so much that happens in between: rolling over, sitting up, babbling and smiling, crawling, cruising, and more! Each day, you discover a bit more of your baby’s budding personality. Schedule a couple of milestone minis to document the transformation.
