WHEREVER WE CARE TO
Ethereal lighting, soft colors of white, gray, aqua and pink, and an ample scene, this is my favorite place for families with toddlers and older children, motherhood and maternity sessions. Sessions take place an hour before sunset.
Muted greens, browns, yellows and grays are the colors of this setting. Rustling leaves in trees filter golden light at your session taking place an hour before sunset. This natural place is perfect for maternity, motherhood, family and child sessions.
Intimate, comfortable and convenient, this place is perfect for motherhood, newborn, young child and family sessions. Whether you go out to your salon or have Alex's recommended hair and makeup artist come to you, you'll love the peaceful convenience of this session.

Clothing is an important part of creating a beautiful image and of highlighting the emotion between you and your loves. My style is natural and organic, and meant to capture the connections that you have with one another. Subtle colors such as pastels, whites, creams, grays and other neutrals unify the look of your family, helping to bring the emphasis on the emotion and not the clothes. Textured clothing, like cable-knit sweaters or linen, show up beautifully, as well as khaki or chinos. Bare feet are always cute and natural. Babies are most beautiful showing off their pure and perfect skin, especially newborns, by dressing them in organic cottons and natural fabrics. Visit our Pinterest inspiration board for more ideas and look out for the How to Prepare for Your Session Guide in your welcome package sent to you after your session is reserved.
Make sure you and your little ones are fed and well rested before your photo session. I understand that families are busy; however, it is useful to not have things scheduled on the day of your session and even the night before. Tired and over-stimulated children appear that way in their photographs. On the day of your session appointment, it is best to only bring the persons being photographed to prevent distractions. Kids can really pick up on our stress levels, so it's important to relax and have fun!
Most sessions last about one hour; however, I don't rush though your session since creativity and children can't be pushed. Newborn sessions can take 2+ hours.
From the time that you place your order and make your payment in full, it can take anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks for your order to be delivered to you depending on the heirloom collection and/or artwork that you choose. Please allow for an extra cushion around holidays.
