We can spend capturing a lovely in-home session to capture what every day life is like in your home. Perhaps we can capture another day when we head to the beach, go on a playdate, or go to the zoo. Then, in a couple of months, we'll capture your sweet baby's birthday party. Fast forward to the holiday season and we can photograph some fun and heartfelt family portraits for those cards.

And at the end of the year? 

YOU. GET. AN. ALBUM. with the images of your choice from all of these sessions so that you can remember what this past year looked like in some of the moments that brought you the most happiness.

And yes, you will ALWAYS get all the final edited digital files as well. No questions asked.

Documentary Family Session

This is how my husband and I capture our life - and it's so beautiful! Therefore, I have decided to partake in this out-of-the-box, story-telling documentary family session (often referred to as 'Day in the life' session) as I follow you and your family in an activity-directed session. You ask, "what do you mean activity-directed?" I mean: making brownies or DIY pizza night, pool day or first time at the beach (I'll get in the water with the kidos, camera and all!), first haircut, water balloon wars, park/splash pad day, picnic at the park/backyard/beach/wherever, museum day, whatever you have in mind - even for newborn!. Messy hair, dirty feet, and happy hearts welcome! Best part: you can wear whatever you want! This session follows no agenda and is meant to capture natural, genuine and FUN moments of what makes you and your family so beautifully unique!

Now, you're thinking: why in the world would I want to do a documentary photo shoot?! Here's a few reasons to consider:

Capture the time before it passes you by. Do you know how many times I hear moms (including mine) say 'Wow times flies. It seems like yesterday you were an itty bitty baby and now you're such a big kid.' Heck, my own mom says it to me, but more in the like, 'How did I go from having two beautiful and wild babies to now being a grandmother so quickly?' And it's true: it does and will go so fast you may miss it if you blink.

No expectations. This takes the pressure off of you and your family to look like the poster perfect family because, let's be real, there is no such thing. This takes away the candy/ice cream/toy bribes for toddler just for that "one shot" that says very little about your family other than cleaning up well and taking a portrait at the park. Seriously, how often do you pile on top of one another and rustle in the leaves at a park in real life? Leave the traditional photo session for the Holiday cards.

Natural and comfortable. This is not the type of session that requires elaborate set-ups with large props and even larger, blinding lights and flashes at a studio where your curious kids may get into things they shouldn't. Nope. This is unapologetically you at home where said curious kids get into the very bottom of their toy bin - or the dog crate to nap with your fur babies. Whatever.

The little moments. Having me in your home of half or an entire day may seem like a daunting thing. You may think there isn't anything that epic happening all the time to document. This is where you have to see it from another angle. The small, unnoticed moments that happen naturally sometimes make for the most compelling, pulling-at-your-heart-string images.

My First Steps

Micro Session $200

Wouldn’t you like to remember the first steps your little baby took as they transitioned into becoming a toddler? Well, now you can! My First Steps micro session is a 5-10 minute photo shoot where we photograph your precious baby walking for the first time. It will also give us enough time to capture some beautiful family portraits.

When does the session take place? The best time to capture this moment is anytime during the first 1 month or so after you baby has started walking. Give them time to be able to get a little steady, although a couple of small tumbles here and there are absolutely awesome, too! Just don't book this for the second or third day they started walking as they may not walk a whole 5-10 feet yet without a bit of struggle.

Where does the session take place: Session may take place anywhere in Broward. Travel fees to Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties may apply.

What do I receive from the session: The session includes a mounted 11×14 print the baby’s (ehem toddler’s) first steps. This is an all-inclusive package the includes all digital file downloads and print release for your enjoyment.

You may add My First Steps to any other previously booked session for a lower fee of $125
