The most wonderful time of the year!

The Holiday season is upon us & Photos make great gifts!

I have a couple of openings next Saturday, Dec 11th at the studio for some petite special occasion sessions-contact me if you would like to come in for some children or family photos. Please keep in mind that our studio is on the smaller side(geared towards serving our newborn clients). I will have gray settee on a neutral backdrop available for family or children photos, or we can take them outdoors by the lake at the studio as long as the weather cooperates this week and there isn't a lot of snow so we can access the area . Cost is $150, and you will receive approximately 8 edited images returned to you in by the following Wednesday. Our lab ships quickly, so any prints or holiday cards ordered through our site should reach you in time for the holidays as long as they are ordered by Dec 16th at noon!

Thank you for your continued support of our local small business. Happiest of Holidays from our family to yours!

Summer + Schedules

Im so excited to offer Summer sunset minis this year! More details coming soon!!

As a small business owner I wear many hats over here! I know you mommas can relate. I'm so looking forward to capturing so many sweet newborns, families, maternity, and maybe. a few High School Seniors this Summer and Fall! The most common question I receive is around my availability, so I thought I would just tell you a little bit about how my schedule works! First, I am a momma to a tween and a teen. My husband works swing shift so one of us tries to be home as much as we can to avoid leaving our kids home for extended periods of time! Time really is fleeting. I feel like my kids should be as small as the sweet little faces I photograph most often! It really does feel like its been a blink of an eye. Secondly, I also own a knitting business which is where my photography journey started. I do have to dedicate at least 30 hours a week to this. Basically, I work 70-80 hours per week on average, luckily I can do a lot of that from home. I obviously really love what I do to invest that much time, I mean I am by no standards rich, unless you count in spirit. It is true though, you don't really feel like you are working when you love what you are doing!

Heres the details- Studio Hours by appointment Tuesday-Friday 10-1, 1-2 Saturdays per month starting at 10:30AM(and most Saturdays in August and September). and occasionally a Monday if requested. I try to never work on Sundays, at least not take on client sessions. If I'm being honest with you all, I often work on Sundays editing and knitting, paperwork, or other miscellaneous behind the scenes stuff. For outdoor sessions, just after the sun rises(which is sooo early in June-early August) or just before the sun sets is the best time for because of the position of the sun in the sky. Earlier in the day the sun is so harsh and right above. Its very unflattering for portraits, so that is why I schedule around 7PM May-August. If the sky is overcast I do try to sometimes adjust to a little earlier time, especially if you have little ones. I do know that it can be difficult, but I really haven't had any melt downs, etc. because I ask that you interact with your kiddos and summer is for staying up a little later and being a little more relaxed. I keep it fast paced, yet to me its peaceful being in nature and soaking up the sun. Family sessions are so special to me, and I am to make it a special experience for you family, too! Towards the end of August the sun starts going down a little earlier as the days get shorter so sessions start earlier and I can schedule morning sessions as well. I hope this helps with scheduling questions! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to schedule a session! We appreciate your support!
