Each session includes emails or a phone call to go over the details of your session, an hour long session (up to 3 hours for newborns) and 30 carefully edited images in an online viewing gallery to order from. I am available for help with ordering prints, products, and/or digital files.

I offer two types of sessions:


I have a natural light studio in my home where I offer maternity, newborn, baby, and child sessions. I have a variety of neutral wraps, blankets, knit diaper covers, and headbands to use during the session. Newborn sessions are done within the first 10 days after birth. There is also a beautiful spot for some quick outdoor shots, if the weather permits, located directly behind my house. The sessions are usually offered on weekday mornings and some afternoons. Weekend studio sessions are not available at this time.


I have many spots in the Ankeny/Des Moines area that I love to have maternity, baby, child, and family sessions. If you have a specific location you'd like to use, I'd be happy to discuss traveling there for your session. Outdoor sessions are normally done just before sunset.

I generally book 2-3 months in advance or during your second trimester for newborns. Please contact me early on to ensure availability as I take on limited sessions each month to give my clients individual attention. Once your session is booked, you will receive more specific information on how to prepare, what to wear, and what happens after your session.

If you need any more information, please contact me.
