What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?
The general rule of thumb is within the first 10 days of their birthday, however, sometimes that feels impossible - and that's okay! Reach out if you have questions and we can come up with a timeframe that feels right for your family.
We don’t feel very confident in front of the camera, is that ok?
Not many people do! It's okay! I am a quick shooter - so while I don't pose much, I do prompt and talk (a lot), to keep things fluid and as fun as possible. Through regular conversation, we'll get to know each other or catch up while I'm also shooting candid moments.
When do you have mini sessions?
