Maternity
The session will be about 1 hour. It can be in my studio or outdoors.  This session is best when done between 34-36 week range.  At the time of scheduling, we will discuss your style. To see examples of these, click on the maternity gallery.
 
Newborn
The session is anywhere from 1-3 hours long because I allow time for feedings, cuddling and the necessary breaks.  Fine art posed newborn sessions take place in my Greensburg studio. Newborn sessions are best done before 2 weeks, preferably before 10 days of age.   
 
 
Baby Session
The session is about an hour in my studio or on location. I do not rush these sessions.  I enjoy finding the connection between your child and the camera.  I allow them to explore and play while I capture them and their true personality.
 
Children
The session is 1 hour in my studio or on location.  I enjoy working with children as they explore and play.  
 
Family Session
The session is 1 hour on location.  I have limited appointments for these sessions.  These sessions are offered as a package.  Please inquire for limited scheduling.
 
Engagement/Couples
The session is 1 hour on location. I love to capture the true love between two people that is so natural.
