It takes all types...

I do many different types of photography, and I love it all! 
Tuesdays this fall are going to be about the different genres I have to offer you!  
 We’ll start with newborn, but next week,
we’re going to peek at babies even younger than a couple of weeks old!

Newborn Sessions

The most precious gift you’ll ever give each other is here…
lovely…perfect…and in your arms…

Whether your first or your fourth,
those gorgeous eyes, soft lips, gentle hands, and tiny feet
are more beautiful than anything you’ve ever seen before.

And your love for this baby is palpable.
It’s in the air…on your face…in your touch…

Let’s capture those moments.
 Because this little person…

is going to grow up faster than you will believe.
Your memories will be with you, but
photos of the remarkable newness of it all
will be everlasting treasures.

So how does a newborn session come together?

Let's book your session before you have the baby.  I always leave room for newborn sessions around due dates, but we don’t actually mark a date on the calendar until after baby is born.  It’s best to do it as close to two weeks as possible because that's when baby will do best with a photo session! 

Rule number one is the babe is the BOSS!
There are a million ways we can do things right, but the only sure fire way to do it wrong is to make that little baby unhappy.  
 I try my best to always be caring and thoughtful with your sweet babe.

The session usually lasts 1-2.5 hours. I make sure to stop a couple of times to let the baby have a full feeding or a snack.  Be prepared to spoil your little one a bit during the session.  Baby may need to come off the normal routine slightly to stay happy and sleepy. Baby generally wears an assortment of diaper covers and adorable hats in one of my many props!  If there is a handmade gift, family heirloom, or special item that you want to include, we’ll use that too!  We keep the place nice and warm, so baby is comfortable and content.   
Newborn photos are so, so special to have.  They are all about baby, you, and your special connection.  These are very detailed photos of the bond that you share with your child, in even just the first few days you can share with each other when you are grey and showing your very own grandbaby how little mommy used to be...

Studio Sessions
I have everything I need on hand here!  Every prop, hat, scarf, blanket, backdrop, and piece of equipment is at our disposal.  We also have indoor and outdoor space and complete privacy without interruption.  It can be very relaxing to be able to just show up with your new love and not have to worry about a thing!

Home Sessions
There’s something special about a picture of your daughter laying on the dining room table that your grandmother handed down to you or your son sleeping in the nursery you so thoughtfully prepared for him.  These are what make home sessions worthwhile.  You have everything you could need on hand!  Daddy’s Army boots, Momma’s pearls, your Christmas decorated tree, and those special items that have meaning to your family.  I'll bring some props and accessories, but I love working with new stuff!  Turn the heat up a little, don't clean up (we'll just tidy up where we need to), and invite me over!

Getting down to business...

So I’m starting something new here.
Mondays mean getting down to business, right??
What better way to highlight that fact than to highlight a business I love every Monday?!
We entrepreneurs have to stick together, so let’s do this!

We’ll start with a personal favorite of mine…
New Moon Healing

Kara Karaguz is the founder of New Moon Healing, a business that offers
Yoga, Conscious Birthing education, and Intuitive Doula services.

I love any business woman who genuinely cares about the well-being of others, especially when it has to do with motherhood.  Kara is one of those women.  When you talk to her, you feel at ease, calm, peaceful, and very much in the moment.  She has been through a journey herself and arrived just where she belongs.
She has a passion for what she does, and she is so very talented! 

In her own words,
I feel a strong pull towards supporting mothers (and partners) on their journey into 
parenthood, energy work, holistic living, and Yoga.”

What new parent couldn’t use someone experienced to help lead them towards a calm, rested mindset and a ready and willing body in preparation for the gorgeous chaos of motherhood?  Learn more about this gracious woman and all she can offer you!  You won’t regret it!!

Do you want your business here next Monday?

A day in the Life of US | Rochester, NY Family Photographer

I have done various versions of this session for years, but never thought to push it all the way until I started wanting one for my own family!!!

I started looking around and realized I don't know if anyone is doing this?!?

I want this so bad...

Just photographs of my family, kids little, mommy and daddy still kinda like eachother, just being ourselves. Not particularly dressed up, not having to behave, not really even having to look at the camera~
Maybe some shots of my house, their cute little rooms, their little artwork..our daily routines that I know may sometimes get old, but I know I will miss someday.

These little moments that fly by.

So when my kids are grown I can remember what we were like all those years.

It is a LOT of hard work raising babies. 
But it is also a lot of fun and so rewarding.

A Day in the Life Sessions with eieio:
2-3 hours at your home: $200 session fee
Choose from great products:
A slideshow? (like one below)
 An amazing custom boutique book, fine art prints, or digital files to use for years to come...

Schedule now!

(before they are off to school years...)

Boudoir that is all YOU | Rochester, NY boudoir

I am all about a woman feeling beautiful!
I just happen to believe that you look beautiful just the way you are!
Do I think some mascara and lip gloss helps? Um YEA!
Or some way sexy attire? Yup
Or an amazing back drop and some help posing?
yea, that too.

Do I think you should spend the whole session with a fan blowing and staring me down
with an angry look on your face?


If you want to look like someone else in your photos, don't come to me! ha!
If you want to look like you, but gorgeous...let's do it!
