I could not be more thrilled with our Day in the Life Session with Anita. I was nervous about how it would go, given that we have two young kids who are prone to tantrums, particularly over the span of several hours. Anita came right in and blended perfectly with our family. She let the kids be themselves, caught sweet moments that so perfectly define their personalities and this stage in their lives, and quietly stepped back when the kids had inevitable bad moments. I was amazed at the moments she was able to capture, the beauty of the ordinary and how magical she made our utterly normal day seem. As a mom and a photographer myself, I am never in the picture, so to see myself being a part of my kids lives in more than just a pose and snap an phone picture kind of way was so impactful.

I legitimately broke out into tears when I saw our images in our beautiful tabletop book (I'm not the only one, three of my friends have cried as they flipped through it). I will treasure that book forever, and frankly, it would be one of the few things I would grab in a fire.

What Anita did for us is irreplaceable, and was worth so much more than we could have ever imagined or paid. We cannot wait for our next session with Anita and will forever treasure the moments she captured for us.

What is the difference between a family session and a “day in the life”?

Portrait sessions, including maternity and newborn, are meant to capture up to a few hours of your lives. They can take place in your home or at a location of your choice. Day in the Life sessions are longer, lasting up to five-hours, and capture a normal day with your family. You can choose to have your session in your home or a mix of your home and an outdoor location. I am with you for hours, eat at your dinner table, watch you play with your children - all while capturing real and raw moments. These sessions are ideal for parents wanting to be photographed WITH their children.

When should we schedule our maternity photos?

Most women feel best between 28 and 34 weeks. I like photographing bellies when you are showing, but still feeling great. I love when women wear clothes that show off her baby belly and still have some movement, color, and personality.

When should we schedule our newborn photos?

I focus on those snuggly, perfectly imperfect family images with your new little one. Your baby's solo photos will be natural with relaxed, comfortable posing. Your baby will photographed in the easiest, most peaceful way possible. It is best to schedule in the first 6-10 days to capture all their newborn features.

When should we contact you to book?

As soon as possible! Weekend dates fill up fast, however I do save room in my schedule for expectant parents and newborns.
