What makes these moments special
If you are here, it's likely that you are expecting a sweet baby to join your family soon. Along with that sweet baby come so many beautiful memories that flash right before your eyes, quicker than you realize. Your babies winkled fingers, tiny toes, and their button nose won't stay that way for long. I find passion within capturing all of these genuine moments for you to be able to reflect on for decades to come, because I know just how important they are.
Each of my sessions are completely customized for each client and your vision.
During your consultation, together we will discuss your wants and needs. I provide absolutely everything for your Session.
My comfortable home studio is fully stocked with high end props, wraps, bonnets, tiebacks, and my Client Wardrobe with plenty of options of indoor & outdoor gowns.
Maternity & Newborn Photographer in Dayton, Ohio
I know that planning for a session can feel overwhelming, and understandably so.
When it comes to booking with me no matter if it is for your Maternity, or Newborn Session; my goal is to make it as easy for you as possible.
01. Choose your Session type
I specialize in Birth, Lifestyle Newborn, and Maternity Photography.
Lifestyle Photography although posed, is a much more laid back experience that I find gives more memory oriented images rather than trying to make them "perfect".
02. We coordinate your dream gallery
For Birth Photography, in this step I highly encourage you to share every single detail of your Birth Plan with me.
For Newborn or Maternity Sessions, this step includes discussing your desired color scheme to incorporate into your gallery. Most of my galleries are full of classic neutral colors like creams, whites, and tans but you of course always have a say in additional colors if you wish.
03. Plan and select your wardrobe
This applies for Maternity, Newborn, and Family Sessions. This step is extremely important to ensuring that your gallery fits your vision.
I offer a variety of gowns in my Client Wardrobe for mamas to use during their Maternity Session, or Family Poses during a Newborn or Family Session. When helping my clients plan for their session, we ALWAYS choose mamas wardrobe first. From there I can help assist you in styling dad and all siblings to coordinate using the initial gown selections.
04. Small prep before the day of your session
Although nothing major, there is a small amount of preparation to be done before the day of your session.
All clients will receive an in-depth
Prep Guide at the time of booking to ensure you are physically and mentally prepared for what your session day will be like. This Guide helps tremendously for dads who are stuck in limbo "not knowing" what to expect!
05. Show up to your Session and make magic!
My favorite part!
My main goal is for you to have the most stress free experience possible. This is when all of the preparation before the day of your session really pays off.
Hopefully, the only things you need to worry about on this day are Hair/Makeup, and bringing your wardrobe.
We will share laughs and stories, and ultimately just get to know each other while documenting memories.
06. Select your Images and Keepsake Products
One week after your Session, you will receive your Gallery to select your favorite images!
From there, you can add on any additional keepsake items that you wish such as an Album.
All Digital Galleries and Keepsake Albums are finalized and delivered within Two Business Weeks
