Jacksonville NC Newborn Photographer Maternity|Children|Family|Couples

It is important for me to communicate with my clients that during every session I try to implement my knowledge and experience with energy, passion, and creativity. My objective is to create images that will permit us to preserve your memories and enjoy them with every look and bring back these precious memories forever. Below are the  descriptions of every kind of session that I offer and what they entail.

If you do not see a session that fits your needs please contact me to see what we can work out.

Pregnancy is a unique experience for every woman, a miracle, and it is the path that we take to bring the loves of our life into this world...our children. It is an important moment in our lives that is definitely worth photographing. This session can be done in your home, on location, or in studio, and family members can be included.

I offer two changes of clothing, and I can give some suggestions over styles and colors if you so desire. My advice for these style of photos are neutral colors, light make-up, and small accessories.

I recommend that you contact me between the fifth and sixth month of your pregnancy, since the best time to take the maternity photos is during the 34th-37th weeks.

This adorable session is the perfect option to capture just how small your newborn is and the different positions that they can be inside your belly. Babies grow up so fast that it is impossible to not have a memory from this stage in their lives. The perfect time for this photo is between the 5th and 14th day after birth. If your baby is older than two weeks I recommend doing a different style of photo session, but nevertheless do not miss out on the opportunity to photograph the new addition to your family.

The newborn session can be done in your home or in my home studio. It is much easier for me to do it in my studio because I have quick access to all my different backgrounds, accessories, hats or headbands, fabrics, and decorative elements to create your custom environment. Nevertheless, if you feel more comfortable in your home, then I can bring a portable studio and the necessary accessories that we'll need and will have chosen prior to my visit.

This session typically takes two to three hours. Mother, father, and brothers/sisters can be included and it is necessary to make the reservation at least one month prior to the expected delivery date. Last-minute appointments can be made available, however priority will be given to appointments already scheduled.

You should bring everything necessary for your baby; diapers, bibs, wipes, blankets, and anything else mother thinks is important for the care of baby. A pacifier is also required, even if your baby doesn't use one.

The idea of this session is to capture the speed with which your baby or toddler is growing; their smiles, their gaze, their joy, their innocence. This session is personalized and I try to combine the child's clothes with the decoration of the studio, room, or birthday party theme. The session can be done in my home studio, your home, or another location of your choice. Generally, these sessions take one hour.

The client should bring different changes of clothes for the child, and I can give some suggestions of great websites with beautiful and original outfits. You can also visit my Pinterest for different ideas for boys and girls. It is also important to bring a favorite toy, blanket, book, food, or drink so that the child is happy and comfortable during the photo session.

This session is a very fun and excellent way to capture your baby's first birthday, you bring the cake and I complement it with the decoration in my studio. This session can be added as an additional component to another session or can be scheduled as an individually. These pictures can be used at your birthday party, in the invitations, or thank-you cards. I recommend that this session be scheduled at least four weeks prior to the date of the birthday party.

This session is generally done on-location such as a beach, park, or any other place that you prefer. For this style of photo I try to capture an image that shows who your family is in that moment and that it will be something that you can enjoy looking at in your living room or bedroom. This session generally takes around an hour and a half to complete and the initial pricing is for four family members. For photography of special events, professional profile, or products please contact me.
