Maternity

What a sweet time in your life!   Pregnancy is a time of joy, pride and anticipation.  From your glowing face to the growing bump to feeling your tiny moving kicking around inside you it is a time that most women look forward to!  Often times, however, for many, pregnancy can take its toll.  Sleeping is now uncomfortable.  You may think you're too fat.  Things you once loved to smell now wreaks.  So, naturally, the thought of a photography session is the furthest thing from your mind.  Years from now you may regret not having beautiful images of yourself to share with your children.  

 

Photographing mamas-to-be is one of my favorite things to do professionally.  I love the meaning, the joy and how the body prepares itself to grow a living human.  Pregnancy is a miracle and it is great watching how mom-to-be affectionately rubs her growing bump and how others feel they need to connect by touching her guarded prize.  Being a slight part of this is an immense treasure for me!  My goal as your photographer is to make you feel beautiful.  For just one hour let me help you take any ill thoughts of how you look and feel and fling them out of the window.  In the snap of a finger (rather, give or take an hour!) the session is over.  

 

Once you're ready to think about having a photographer be a part of this joyous time please contact me.  We would begin with our first conversation via telephone where we would discuss your clothing and location options.  I would be in touch with you throughout as we wait for your session date to arrive.  Your comfort is my utmost priority, especially since we live in the muggy Miami.  I strive for your session to be a comfortable and enjoyable one.

 

My on-location sessions are generally using the best light there is -- nature's light!  However, in some cases, flash may necessary.  Things are a bit different when the session is in-studio.  Only the best of studio lighting is used to make you look your best.  Once that initial consultation happens most of, if not all, your questions will be answered.  However, if you still need further information feel free to contact me via email, phone or text!

Newborn

Congratulations, your precious baby has arrived!  Tiny fingers and toes.  Perfect eyelashes.  Fresh baby breath.  These are all minute details that disappear in the blink of an eye.  Before you know it your precious mini me is starting her own family!  Why not have this fleeting moment captured!  Since newborns change daily and the cute curly poses you see here are when they are just days old so you want to book as soon as possible.  During your last trimester would be a great time to do this.  For best results, newborns are photographed weekday mornings when the baby is 5-10 days old.  

 

NOTE::

Due to the nature of my job and the exposure I have to newborns I plead with you that if anyone in your family is sick pleaseeeee do not bring them to the session.  I work extremely hard to ensure that my home studio is germ free; health and safety of all babies (and myself!) is of utmost concern to me.  Click here to read frequently asked questions.

Cake Smash

     Happy first birthday, what a huge milestone!  In just one year, 12 months, your baby has transformed from a helpless newborn into an independent little guy!  When my little clients return to celebrate and commemorate their first birthday, that tiny seven pounder has metamorphosed into a huge ball of energy and personality!  It is a true joy to have these little tykes return and I have the opportunity to see how much they've changed and grown!!  This session is for your little to stuff her face, hands and feet into an icing filled cake while having fun demolishing it.  It's so much fun to see the reactions on her face -- each baby is different -- she touches the sticky stuff.  Since your baby's mood and participation is key, there are no guarantees but I will try my best to capture memories for you.

 

     The session begins with your baby wearing an outfit for a portrait session followed by the cake smash outfit.  You have two options to select from, each unique in its own way.  Be sure to wear clothing that you don't mind getting messy.  After your session you will return within 10-14 days for a gallery reveal and ordering session where you will select your favorite custom edited images.
