My studio is a renovated barn on the Coffee Creek Ridge property which also happens to be the perfect location for beautiful outdoor photos and weddings! I love that I grew up playing in the same barn that is now where I “work.” My main priority is for my clients to feel comfortable and welcome when they visit my studio and I always try my best to have a great place for them to relax...including snacks and cold water in the fridge! When clients bring me their babies, I tell them ahead of time that all they need to bring is their baby! My studio is stocked with everything we need for sessions including props, outfits, headbands, hats, and so much more! I also offer boutique clothing for babies up to 18-24 months for milestone sessions. Parents are always telling me how great it is to not have to worry about outfits. I even have several maternity gowns in various sizes available for use!
I offer a discount on milestone sessions to returning newborn clients. "Sitter" sessions are available once your baby is sitting well and unassisted. Milestone sessions are great for birthdays. Milestone sessions take place in-studio and boutique outfits up to size 18-24 months are available for use. I also have headbands available for these sessions. These sessions are styled in a timeless and simple way to focus on the baby and their features rather than distracting props and backdrops.
I’m always so excited when clients book a newborn session with me because I know how much they will cherish great photos of their new baby. I’m excited when they realize the value in that! Everyone tells you “they grow so fast” but they really do. You don’t realize it until it happens to you. That’s my favorite part of newborn photography...the more they grow, the more their newborn photos are cherished. I book my newborn sessions in advance and always encourage clients to not wait until the last minute to ensure availability. I only book a certain number of newborn sessions each month, so I recommend booking as soon as possible. The beginning of the second trimester is great timing. I’m an amazing pregnancy- secret-keeper by the way! My newborn sessions take place within the first two weeks after delivery, ideally within the first 10 days. I send a prep-guide and work with clients prior to their session to plan the perfect session for them, including color choices and any special requests. I take my time during my newborn sessions and ensure the baby’s safety at all times. I stay up-to-date on immunizations, sanitize props, and wash fabrics after each session with free and clear detergent.
Weddings are photographed by associate photographer Jennifer and edited by me. We are available for weddings at Coffee Creek Ridge as well as non-Coffee Creek Ridge weddings, however, we do offer special pricing for Coffee Creek Ridge clients since Coffee Creek Ridge is a companion family business. Our style is clean and timeless to ensure your photos look beautiful now and forever. Photography trends come and go and we don’t want your wedding photos to ever look out-dated. We help with timeline planning to ensure your wedding day photographs flow as smoothly as possible. We are easy-going, fun to work with, and also work well with other vendors and professionals. Before your wedding, we have you fill out questionnaires to help us know all of the important details of your day to ensure we capture all of the important details. We try to stay away from overly-posing couples so that your photos are reflective of who you truly are as a couple. Of course we give guidance when needed, but our goal is to create photos that are YOU and from YOUR wedding!
