HELLO and welcome!
As a mother of two beautiful girls, I am constantly reminded of how quickly children grow and change. If I could slow down time, I would! But since that is not possible, I am so grateful that I can photograph moments and relive the memories every time I see the photos.
That is truly the beauty and gift of photography - and I look forward to sharing that gift with you!
I am happy that you recognize the importance of beautiful, professional maternity portraits... the first step in documenting the life of your child.
Our sessions are designed to tell YOUR story, and the anticipation that pregnancy brings. It's amazing how things that seem so ordinary today will one day become memories that you will treasure.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you create your very own beautiful story!
"Thank you so much. The album is so lovely. Everyone I have shared it with admires your work. Thank you for sharing your talent with us."

WHAT IS A FULL SERVICE STUDIO, AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME?
What that means for you is that I will be there every step of the way to make this experience as relaxing and stress-free as possible... actually you will likely have a lot of laughs and have a really fun time.
We start with creating a plan, a vision of what you want the end result to look like. The consultation is a very important part of this process. With this vision in mind, we plan from what to wear, to where to photograph your session, to planning the end results and ordering your prints and albums.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A SESSION?
During the consultation, I want to get to know you! We discuss details of how and where you want to be photographed, what to wear, and what not to wear. We talk about what you want to do with your images after the photoshoot. If there is a specific location in your home where you want a wall portrait, I take that into consideration when I compose a photo. I also photograph every session with enough variety for a beautiful album.
I don't place a time limit on the actual session. I simply focus on creating an memorable experience. It usually takes about 45 minutes, but I recommend you schedule up to 2 hours.
THE ORDERING SESSION
The ordering session can be done at my home office in Prince George, via phone/ online, or at your home. This is usually done about 2-3 weeks after the session, depending on when works best for everyone. You're encouraged to bring anyone who would be part of the decision process. Prints take about 3 weeks to arrive after order; albums can take up to 6 weeks.
If you are a visual person like I am, it will help to see what prints or a collage will look like in your home. (example below)
