... it is meant to tell a story rather than a one-time snapshot of your family. Those are great to send to Great Aunt Gertie, but what about you? What about your children? Lifestyle photography gives a beautiful opportunity to take an authentic moment, season, or event from your life and permanently document it. This is perfect for documenting your favorite times with family. Think routines of the day ( play time, bed time ) or favorite places ( park, museum, pool ) or activities you normally do ( playing in sprinklers, board games, jumping on the trampoline, story time, etc. ). It is also perfect for seasons of life ( maternity, newborn, adoption ). When you book this type of session, you have the luxury to leave your camera and worries behind and just be in the moment... Whether it is at the park with your family or baking in the kitchen with your children - be there. Whether your little one is approaching a milestone or birthday - be there. Get messy with arts and crafts, laugh, and embrace the chaos - they are only little once. Soon they (may) start cleaning up their own mess, getting ready for prom, focusing on a new hobby - just be with them. Let me take care of preserving the moments that you desire to soak in.
We often find ourselves scrambling for our phones or cameras - only to end up missing out on being a part of it or saddened at the thought of fleeting moments and worried about memories being lost. So, even just for a short while, I want to give you the luxury to be there - Be in the moment.
PRICING + INFO
My approach to newborn photography reflects real life with you and your new bundle of joy. The first few weeks go by in a blink and they tend to be a blur ( thank you sleep deprivation ). I want you to be able to look back and still be able to soak in the feelings of wonder and joy as your family is snuggled together in the place where these first memories are made - your home.

A Day in the Life Session
"Nicole photographed our Fresh48 Session recently and captured such a special time in our lives as we welcomed our son into the world!! She was great to work with from the initial booking, the coffee date/intro, the day of our session, and quick delivery of our pictures!! We couldn't have been happier with her work and look forward to working with her throughout our son's 1st year with the "grow with me package". Thank you, Nicole!"
What do we wear?
Sorry - no style guides over here. Wear what you normally do! Be comfortable. Be real. Be you!
How do I prepare my home for a session?
I am here to capture what is true to you. Around here real is the new perfect. If you feel you'd like to pick up and declutter a little - go for it. If you want to keep that pile of baby toys on the floor - rock on! We just moved to our new house in MS, and as of now, we don't have a dining room table - this does not keep me from documenting our life! Embrace your season, sweet mama!
What if my child throws a fit?
I am a human with two small children - need I say more? Ha. No but really, children are raw and real and it happens - you won't feel the heat of judgement from this mama!
Will you share our story publicly?
Privacy is of the highest importance to me, so if you do not want your session shared - I will not share it! However, if you do want it shared I typically create a blog post and share it on my social media outlets. Please see below for examples:
