Our session together is a CELEBRATION of this chapter in your family's unique story–a dog-eared page in your family's storybook! And in the true spirit of a celebration, our session together is a time to lean into the joyfulness of being a family and to simply love on each other! You're already leaving such a powerful and lasting legacy of love for your little ones–my job is to step in and capture your timeless love in vivid color and to turn your everyday moments into keepsakes.
All sessions are shot on location with NATURAL LIGHT, usually at an agreed upon outdoor location (i.e. a favorite park, your own backyard, or that farmer's market you love going to as a family). All lifestyle newborn sessions are photographed in the comfort of your own home.
I am currently based in Jersey City and serving its surrounding areas.

All sessions include:
• A pre-session planning & get-to-know-you email consultation
This allows me to learn more about you and your unique story and to get a sense of your vision and what you want out of our session. Beyond our initial consultation, I am always willing to answer any questions you may have or to simply bounce around ideas with you about details such as props or what to wear.
• Full-sized, retouched, hi-res digital files of your photos delivered electronically
You will not be asked to pay any separate costs for digital files or prints. Although I love tangible products, I also value affordability and try my best to cut out any extra costs for you. Your digital files will offer you the flexibility and luxury to create your own keepsakes at your convenience.
• Photo print release
The photo print release included with your digital images will grant you complete freedom to print and share your photos for personal use. It also allows me to use the photos for promotional purposes (i.e. on my website or Facebook business page) to help future clients get an understanding of what they can expect. Your privacy is important to me and I will never use your names or other personal information in connection with your photo.
DO YOU OFFER MINI SESSIONS?
DO YOU photograph events, engagements, or weddings?
Yes to the first two! Although I looove attending weddings, I don't photograph them. For engagement photography, feel free to pick from the two session types above or we can create a custom session. For events, please contact me to receive a quote.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
My normal turn-around time is about 2-3 weeks after the session, however, rush processing is available upon request. My goal is to give you natural, timeless photographs that capture your unique personality and I edit each individual photograph with care.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
Part of being an on-location natural light photographer means that I am at the mercy of the weather! In the event of rain, we will reschedule for the next mutually convenient day. We will usually decide the night before morning sessions and the morning of for afternoon sessions.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
I recommend wearing colors that complement each other rather than outright matching. I personally like neutrals (i.e. whites and greys) and pastels with a pop of pattern, color, or texture. It's also important to wear whatever you feel most beautiful and confident in! Here's a Pinterest board with some examples of outfits that complement each other without being too matchy-matchy.
