A Note from Mary

Congratulations, Mama! I believe that motherhood is one of the greatest honors we can be given in life. Motherhood opens the door to a new understanding of love and sets us on a journey to rediscover our own strength, resilience, and grace. This journey will most likely be the wildest, yet most beautiful, road of our lives and it deserves to be documented. I find such beauty in the most ordinary of moments; I love to document a mother’s loving embrace of her round belly, the endless kisses on little newborn cheeks, and the sweet smiles after a nighttime bath. I am passionate about preserving this precious time that is so fleeting. I will work closely with you to know what moments make your unique story and focus on creating those shared moments at our session. It is my hope that you will hold these memories close to your heart and relive them for years to come.

FAQ

Q: What is the First Year Session?

A: The First Year Session is a lifestyle portrait session that happens within the first year of your little ones life. You may choose any month that you wish to document. I recommend sessions once your little one is at least sitting up confidently on their own.

Q: Why is the Newborn Session more than the Maternity or First Year sessions?

A: The Newborn Session is more of an investment due to the level of knowledge and experience I have obtained of the years in order to handle your precious little one with the more care. Also, the time needed to get those beautiful images takes a little more patience… I always say “your little one runs the show” and following their lead always makes for the most seamless sessions.

Q: How long will it take to receive my full gallery of images?

A:  Your photos will be delivered within 3 weeks from the session date.

Q: How long will be gallery be available?

A: Your gallery is posted online for six months. Renewal fee of $20/month. To avoid incurring the gallery renewal fees, I recommend downloading all original sized files on your computer and backup the files on at least 2 external hard drives. You may also purchase a USB drive separately.

 

Q: Will I receive the right to print my photos? Do I own the copyright?

A: Yes, you have permission to print your photos. You can print directly from your personal online gallery through the best quality professional lab.
