Standard Portrait Session
These portrait sessions are ideal for families, couples, and for your newborn. They will include a blend of organic and candid moments alongside just the right amount of formal and intentional shots. Please note that if you desire a matching-shirt-and-posed kind of vibe, I may not be the photographer for you. These sessions blend lifestyle photography with an editorial influence to create something fresh and true to your unique personality. We take the same approach when it comes to newborn sessions. We capture you interacting with your new arrival in a natural and emotionally authentic way. We do not put your infant in a bucket or costume, but can recommend lots of talented photographers who specialize in that style.
These sessions are about an hour long, and include an online gallery with full printing rights and high resolution downloads at no charge. This enables you to save your images for archival purposes and for use in your family's albums and future photo projects.
Deluxe Portrait Session
These sessions are like the above, but closer to two hours long and include a custom mood-board and location guidance from a professional stylist/creative director. You are encouraged to schedule to overlap golden hour when possible. Weekend availability is extremely limited. All inclusive package $1500.
- consultation with a stylist and professional wardrobe guidance.
- a full set of archival 5"x 7" prints of the session.
- one 16"x 20" wall portrait mounted on masonite.
- the artistically edited high resolution digital negatives.
First Year Package
Grow with us! This package includes 3 sessions to document your growing family's first year of milestones. You will receive a maternity session OR documentation of adoption, a newborn session or 6 month session, and a 1st birthday or Gotcha Day session. Yes, you did the math right: that's 3 sessions for the price of 2! In exchange for this huge discount, First Year packages must be paid in full at booking. Gift cards are available, and believe me, the recipient will love you forever!!
Each session is approximately one hour long and includes an online gallery, printing rights, and high-res downloads.
Seaside Family portrait session (East + West coast availability)
The basic session will include documentation of the beach and your beach house. You may elect to add evening documentation on the boardwalk. Again, please note that these are storytelling sessions and not traditional, posed, matching-shirts-and-khakis sessions. The composition of the photographs will incorporate the mood and palette of the natural seaside landscape, and the spirit of the subjects. We can happily refer you to a more traditional photographer if you prefer the less artful route. Clients receive enough images from the deluxe session to fill a coffee table book, as well as the products featured in the Deluxe package (above).
Day in the Life: a storytelling session
Our favorite!! This package produces a gift for your family that can barely be described with words. Sarah will document your family for a good bit of the day, from your morning routine onwards with small breaks throughout. We'll plan what we like to call a 'photogenic outing': treats at a quaint ice cream parlor, mini golf, splashing around in the river, feeding the horses, playing Wii... whatever your family actually loves to do for fun. These images will capture something authentic and true about your family's place in time, more than any stiff studio shots or an hour in the park could ever come close to.
We'll document the kids helping you to prepare your evening meal, or even working on homework with you at the table. We'll photograph the children in their rooms with all their favorite things, the family pet...everything that makes their childhood something to cherish.
I want to preserve your family's everyday you-iness in all its natural, imperfect beauty.
