What is Lifestyle Photography? +

Lifestyle photos are usually described as candid and relaxed - think less smiling and looking at the camera, and more natural interactions and coziness! (Is that a word?...) I'll direct you into natural poses and then let you take it from there - you're perfect at being yourself and it's those little family nuances that I love to photograph!

What is included in my session fee? +

For Newborn Lifestyle, Fresh 48, and one-hour Family photo sessions, your session fee includes assistance with planning, your session time, and 20 complimentary digital files (a $1000 value!) that you choose from an online gallery!

When should I schedule my Newborn Session? +

As early as you can! If you would like to book a Fresh 48 session, please let me know as soon as possible - Because there is an "on-call" aspect to these photos, I only take a few a month. Newborn Lifestyle photos do not have to be scheduled within the first two weeks of life, like a posed session, but they certainly can be! Most Newborn Lifestyle photos take place within the first two months - think about if you're more comfortable setting up a routine with your little one first, or if you'd just rather capture all of their details at their littlest!

What should I wear to my session? +

This is a big topic! Please let me know if you need some help - I'm happy to look at photos of outfits that you're considering and help steer you in the right direction. My best advice is to try to stick to neutrals (grey, white, creams) and add colorful accessories!

Why should I choose you as my next photographer? +

So many reasons!....but the most important is that I will go out of my way to make sure you're happy with your photos and the whole experience...and there may even be a few surprise client gifts thrown in at some point! ;)

I love your work, but it's a little bit out of my price range... +

Ask about payment plans! As long as your session fee is covered before your online gallery is posted, I would be more than happy to work with you on spacing out your payments.

Do you offer mini-sessions? +

I do! I offer mini-sessions on the Cape from November - May for $200. These include 10 digital images. Travel outside of a 20 mile radius from Mashpee, Ma (02649) is an additional $50. Mini-sessions during "busy seasons" (Summer and Fall) are only available on scheduled days.
