My downtown Wichita studio is open by appointment only, and is located in The LUX at 120 E 1st St N, Suite 200. Sessions are held at the location of your choice… in my studio, outdoors or at your home.
I photograph expecting mamas, squishy newborns, beautiful babies, sweet children and their lovely families in Wichita, KS and the surrounding areas, including Derby, Maize, Goddard, Haysville, and Andover.
Lifestyle Newborn Sessions
Lifestyle newborn sessions are held in your home within babies first 4 weeks or so of life. I document all those details of brand new life with baby that you never want to forget… your home, bundled snuggles, feeding baby, nursery, siblings, pets, etc. Lifestyle sessions are organic with minimal direction from me… I’m there to capture the authentic connections within your family (we’ll always try to get that shot of everyone smiling, though!). These sessions truly tell the story of your new family!
Lifestyle newborn session should be held within baby’s first 2-4 weeks of life (although even up to 6 weeks old is fine, there just won’t be as many sleepy baby shots). Lifestyle sessions will primarily be family shots, but we will swaddle baby and get beautiful images of just baby. I will bring swaddles and a few timeless hats, bonnets and headbands.
Studio Newborn Sessions
Posed newborn sessions freeze time into true fine art for your home. Deluxe studio newborn sessions generally last about 2-3 hours. Mini studio newborn sessions are up to one hour long. Studio newborn sessions are held in my downtown Wichita studio (in The LUX at 1st and Market), where we have access to my collection of props, fabrics, hats and headbands! Newborns are best photographed when they are still fresh and new, within the first 5-14 days of life. Families and siblings are welcome to join in at all newborn sessions.
Safety is always my top priority when posing babies! I am experienced (as a photographer and mother) and know how to handles and position babies safely. My props are only washed in natural, scent free detergent, to prevent irritating baby’s sensitive skin.
Maternity sessions are best held between 32-37 weeks. It should be when your belly is really showing, but before you become too uncomfortable. I absolutely love photographing pregnant mamas. It’s such a beautiful and fleeting time that every mama deserves to have documented. It’s also a great time for us to meet and get to know each other before your newborn session.
Deluxe family sessions generally last 1-1.5 hours, and mini sessions are 30 minutes. All family sessions are held at the location of your choice. My goal when shooting families is for everyone to have fun! My style is a mix of posed and lifestyle images…. I love showing the connections in your family.
