Studio Session Details
Style: Our 30 minute studio sessions are simple and sweet. I photograph my studio sessions in our family room of our home. It's nothing glamorous and the treadmill in the corner is evidence of that. Lol. But I love the moments I can capture in my space. With a big bay window, creamy wall, white sheers, hardwood floors and simple timeless setups I could spend forever photographing in here. And although I have a simple backdrop or two, many of our little ones are photographed just jumping on the bed, climbing up on the tufted sofa or dancing in front of the windows. This space is designed to look more like a living room than a photography studio so that little ones are comfortable in a more familiar setting.
Location: My home is located in Brookhaven, PA in a regular ole residential neighborhood. The cutest little neighborhood with the best darn neighbors in the world I might add! I'm just one turn off of 352 and if you're familiar with the area I'm across the street from the Brookhaven Fire/Police/Community Center.
Package Info: A studio session is $250 and includes a 30 minute appointment, private online proofs, 5 high-resolution images of your choice, and a document giving you permission to print, publish and share your images as you please for any personal use. Basically the document says you can do whatever you'd like with your images except profit from them or claim them as your work 🙂
Scheduling: Sessions take place Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9:30am and 2pm. Weekend sessions are available for an additional $50 fee since weekends are usually my time with my family. Once a month though we offer mini sessions called Simple Saturdays. They are a shortened version of our regular studio sessions and cost just $150 for a 20 minute appointment and three images but the appointment book up fast so if you have one photo goal vs multiple they're a great deal.

Recommended ages: Studio sessions are best for ages 4mo+ through elementary age. I always encourage parents to take part in their child's photos or come photo ready just in case little ones are feeling a bit clingy, need some cuddle time or want mommy and daddy with them on the set to keep things playful. Plus it gives me a cute opportunity to shoot details like them holding onto your hand, cuddling shyly onto your shoulder or perhaps the occasional flying toddler! Adding more than one little one into the mix can be tough in studio due to being constrained to wherever I have the flash set so siblings that dart in opposite directions can be nearly impossible to catch. For these situations, if possible, I highly recommend an outdoor sunset session where we have so much more freedom to let kids run and play unless and although a tad bit more you get a ton more for your money with a huge variety of photos.
How to Book: Please email me to confirm your interest as well as a little bit about what you're hoping to achieve (ex. baby's first birthday, a head shot for yourself, mommy and me session, etc). I'll resend much of the info you see here just in case to make sure it's a perfect fit for you and if so we'll choose a date and time. Once a date is set we’ll send over a contract and link for your initial payment (50% of session price) to book your date.
