Why hire me to be your photographer?
Capturing memories one click at a time
I'm the owner of PBKD. Mom of 4
& I've learned not only does time slip away but we tend to get caught up in our busy lives, and the only thing we have are memories & photos to look back on. Photography has always been a passion of mine and being able to capture a client's memories & moments is rewarding! Receiving good feedback from my clients is a bonus! Being able to get to know new families, businesses, and new mommies is a bonus too! I love what I do and love to get creative with my work.
What's always in my bag?
Canon 5D Mark IV
Canon 50mm & sigma 35mm
When's the best time to book a maternity session?
I typically prefer to have you in the studio between 26 weeks and 34 weeks ( 7 or 8 months). You want your bump to be fully showing, nice, and round but don't want to be too close to your due date that you are uncomfortable, or risk delivering before you make it to your session!
How many pictures will we receive?
Every portrait session is different. Depending on which session you choose you will receive X amount of digital images with the option to purchase more!
What’s the best time to have a session with a newborn?
I typically prefer to have your baby in the studio 1 - 4 weeks after the baby is born for Newborn portraits.
Do you provide props?
I do provide all props for newborn and cake smash sessions, but you are more than welcome to bring your own props to incorporate into your session. Please reach out to me before booking to discuss incorporating your items.
Do you have a question?
Feel free to email or text me with any questions regarding your future session!
Can i bring additional guest?
I do ask that you please refrain from inviting any guests. 2 adults max and if children are not being photographed please make arrangements. I try to keep noise to a minimum during your newborn session. Also, my studio is home-based and space is limited.
How should we dress for our family session?
When you book your session I will send a clothing guide via email to help you choose color-corresponding outfits that match the whole family!
Do you provide gowns for maternity sessions?
I provide a limited amount of gowns, robes, and body suits.
Can we get sibling & parent pictures during our newborn session?
Of course, however, I do ask that you bring only siblings when it is time for their photos I know that during an hour-long session or even longer it can be a lot for a toddler or even older children to sit quietly and wait during a lengthy session.
