MEET RICHELLE

hi loves!

I’m Richelle

Let’s Get to know each other

If you enjoy a bit of sarcasm, a really well made meal, all the love from your little ones (within reason because overstimulation is so real!), then I am your people.  Like you, I value documenting my time with my family.  

I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations by the fire pit and in the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together.

Wouldn't you love to have this?

Your friends and family visit your home and walk away jealous of that gorgeous gallery wall.

Your coffee tables are littered with albums of memories.  Flipping through the pages becomes a favorite Friday night past time. 

Recounting the memories with your children when you look at photos together makes them grow up yearning to do the same with their children.

Absolutely !

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS —

FAQ

When do I reserve my newborn session?

No. 1

To book your at home newborn photoshoot, you will need to sign a contract and pay the retainer aka the creative fee. The fee will depend on whether you are looking for a one time full session, or a membership of 2-4 sessions.

When will we get our newborn photos?

No. 2

You will receive a proofing gallery within 10 business days.  You'll have 7 days to choose and purchase your favorites.  Images will then be ready to download within 3-5 business days.

Absolutely!  The labs I work with only produce the most stunning pieces of art that are meant to last for generations.   

Can I book multiple sessions within my baby's first year?

Most definitely. In fact, if you join my membership, you can save $700 AND you get a $200 print credit after each session instead of just a $100 print credit from booking one session.

" She was great with my two under two and knew how to distract them which made us feel so much better about the shoot since babies are so unpredictable. "
