how it works

My goal is to create a relaxed and fun environment for you and your family. I want to capture you at your most natural and spontaneous. I do everything I can to make the experience fun and carefree.

 

Before booking

I do my best to customize your session to your personal needs. Before you decide to work with me, please take a look at my portfolio, blog, and Facebook page . Each photographer has their own unique style and it’s important that you choose a photographer whose style is in line with what you would want your images to look like! If you have ideas for your session (style, pose, etc) and you’re not sure if they fit with what you’ve seen of my work, let’s chat about it in advance to make sure I can deliver a product you’ll love. If not, no worries, I have plenty of great referrals for you.

How to book a session

So you like what you’ve seen and are ready to book? Use the form on the Contact me tab to get in touch with me. My assistant or I will respond to your inquiry within 1-48 hours with any questions and available session dates. In order to finalize the booking process and reserve your session date on my calendar, a signed contract and $200 non-refundable retainer must be received. The remaining session fee balance is due before or at the time of your session.

To guarantee a spot on my calendar, please schedule 4-6 months in advance.

newborn COLLECTIONS

Newborn photography is my passion and I’m truly privileged to create beautiful images of your perfect precious baby. Over the past 10 years, I have photographed countless newborns and have learned from some of the best photographers in the industry. I am fully licensed, insured and trained in newborn safety. I am fully vaccinated (which includes whooping cough, tdap, yearly flu and Covid-19 vaccine) and I will always reschedule if there is any sign of sickness within my household.

 

We are in unprecedented times right now and I know you might be feeling a little nervous for your session, but rest assured, the studio is kept covid safe and I will take the upmost care in protecting your little one during the session.

 

Newborn sessions take place within my cozy Long Grove, IL studio, Monday-Friday at 9:30am and are designed for babies 2 weeks and younger. If your baby has already been born, I’ll try my best to squeeze you in before the baby turns 14 days old. Please contact me asap to check my availability.

 

Each collection includes photographer’s time and talent, and all high resolution digital images presented in a private viewing gallery. I provide everything for your session. I have lots of bonnets, headbands, outfits and props. Each session is unique and individually styled to you liking based on your color preferences in your pre-session questionnaire.
