I am a passionately creative portrait photographer that is at your service. I am available to photograph families, babies, children, expectant mothers, engaged couples, events, weddings, graduations, high fashion/boudoir, military personnel, school, groups, and head shots.
Photography sessions will last from 30 minutes to 90 minutes (some special sessions may need up to 2 hours but must be coordinated ahead of time). Special sessions can include as many clothing changes as will fit in the allotted time.
With Northern Lights, clients have the choice to be photographed in the studio or on location in a natural or urban setting. I will happily travel to your home or any desired location (within a 40 mile radius), wherever your family will feel most comfortable. Provisions for travel outside of the 40 mile radius can be negotiated.
Your photo shoot will not be your typical photo shoot; rather, you will be directed and instructed on facial expressions, body language, connection, and wardrobe. We can be outside and your kids, should they be present, can run around and let their personalities come out to be photographed. I will get your family interacting and take some candid pictures as part of your session. We can slightly pose you and get some good family shots but spontaneity and creativity are highly valued in my photography style. My goal is to allow everyone to be authentic and allow personalities to come alive in your portraits. I love capturing real life moments ... the silly, cute, and playful ... the loving, serious and thoughtful.
Having a baby is one of the greatest experiences a family can have. Maternity portraiture is best done between 32 and 38 weeks of pregnancy. Your spouse, partner, and/or children are welcome to join you for a few shots if you desire.
Newborn sessions should be photographed between birth and two weeks of age if possible. During this time, they retain some of the natural curl in their hair from before they were born. They are also more sleepy and flexible, so it's easier to achieve the most desired poses. Newborns look best in photographs when they are in their birthday suite, or in a diaper/diaper cover.
You can rest assured that you will find happy and helpful customer service at each step of the portrait process and long after the experience. Thank you for considering Northern Lights Photography and I look forward to helping you achieve your best photo experience ever.
