Phoenix, az ~ Travel Session
Our sweet friend London came to see us from California all the way to Phoenix. Hazel and Lodon were born just a few short days apart. Sarah, London's momma, and I became good friends through the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network. For those who don't know, there is an entire world of support for families of children in the online world. I have made some of the greatest friends though these online forums. I can hardly wait to see London and Sarah again!
The NC Down Syndrome Alliance
I had the greatest time working with the North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance. We had a beautiful group of kids from babies to college age. kids. They were all beautiful and had such an amazingly fun day.
Arboretum in the spring
Sadie is such a sweet and sassy little lady. She danced and twirled and sashayed all through the park. Check out the stunning blooms we had for her session too! The dress we used for the session is from Little Dreamers Tutus. They have the prettiest gowns!
The Caba Family
Kelly initially contacted me through Instagram (a fun place that I have met a good number of our Down syndrome friends). We scheduled a date for Abby's photos, and decided to make it a family session. This gorgeous family came all the way from Florida to Durham for their session. Can you believe how lucky we got to have them here right when the tulips were in bloom!

One thing that we are not lacking for is photos of Hazel. I could fill this entire website with just "favorite" photos. I can't help it, she's just too perfect.....every little once of her.

breathtaking • moments • captured
I want to share your moments, your memories, your love for your babies. I want to capture every little snuggle, all the cuddles and hugs, the laughs and the giggles. I even love those big emotions, the tears, the tempers, everything that makes your moments yours. I want to see that perfect and the imperfect that makes up YOU. I know how you crave for that from me. You need that from what I can give to you. There are so few things in life that will hold the value of a photograph. A moment frozen in time. A perfect memory, otherwise gone. Let's do this together.....
CONTACT: You make contact with me to inquire about scheduling a photography session. I receive your inquiry and schedule a phone consultation. This way we can discuss any questions that you may have about scheduling and setting up you session. We discuss dates and style of your dream session. If you're not available on the phone, we'll chat via text or email. I am pretty flexible. We can work around what's best for both of us.

4. THE PHOTO SESSION
We meet at an established location to photograph your portrait session. Depending on the type of session you have booked. The majority of sessions are set up early evening before sunset. Since moving to North Carolina, I have found a few locations that work beautifully for early morning light as well. this works especially well for families who worry about little ones with early bedtimes. The lighting is the most complimentary to my style closest to sunrise and sunset, and I insist that you have only the best for your photos. I will work with you to see what is the best time for your family, keeping in mind my artistic vision for your final portrait.
5. AFTER THE PORTRAIT SESSION:
Approximately 6 weeks following your portraits, I will set up a gallery viewing sessions with you. 10-40 photos will be presented for your selection, depending on your session. You will have custom wall designs, albums, wall art as well as digital options available for purchase.
