teaching the art of newborn portraiture....

Your sneak peeks are posted
(if desired) and a few days after your session you'll receive your proofing gallery.  This is a giant gallery of images from which you'll pick the images for your package.   Your selected images are then perfected & uploaded to your final online gallery for you to download & share. 


You text or email to tell us your little love has arrived.  We set the date of your session at that time.  A few days before your session you'll receive some basic session prep guidelines to help you best prepare for a successful session

when you deliver

After many many requests, I'll be taking on a limited amount of mentoring sessions in 2019. 
They will be offered in a 1:1 & 2:1 format & will take place in my Tolland, CT studio. 

Mentoring focuses on perfecting your newborn posing techniques as well as your studio lighting.  We will also cover session prep, parent posing, wrapping, prop shots, maximizing your posing & angles, proper camera settings & more - and finally finish the day up with some editing using ACR & PS.

The 1 day mentoring session will include 2 FULL newborn sessions from start to finish including parent shots.  You'll see my full session flow & we will talk through each pose & transition as we go.  

OPTIONAL 1/2 DAY ADD ON:  You run a 3 hour newborn session!  This hands on ADD ON is tailored to what you want to master, whether it's a certain beanbag pose, bag flow, prop posing, parent posing or the entire session flow. We work to accomplish your own personal posing goals with YOU posing and me assisting.

1:1 Mentoring - $1700
2:1 Mentoring - $1300/person
add-on 1/2 day hands on - $400/person
