Philosophy

"Take care of all of your memories, for you can not relive them." – Bob Dylan

01PHILOSOPHY Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking me to document their growing families. And now I just can't get enough. There's not much better than photographing all the personalities of a family hanging together.

I adore the first few days of a newborn... those little fingers and toes and sweet eyelashes. All the newness. 
I want to document your growing family in a place that's meaningful to you, whether it's at your favorite place, a spot around town, or at your house. And if it includes the family pets, that's even better.

So let's chat! Let's  plan your dream session.

FROM PAST PAST CLIENTS

WITH OUR FAMILY AS BUSY AS IT IS, I AM TERRIBLE AT REMEMBERING TO TAKE FAMILY PHOTOS AT HOLIDAYS AND SPECIAL EVENTS. THAT'S ONE OF THE MANY REASONS I AM SO THANKFUL FOR CARLA LAWRENCE PHOTOGRAPHY. SHE CAPTURES PRECIOUS MOMENTS OF MY FAMILY SO THAT WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE MEMORIES OF OUR GROWING FAMILY AND MUCH BETTER THAN I WOULD ON MY OWN. NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE DOCUMENTATION OF OUR CHILDREN AS THEY GROW, BUT WE HAVE BEAUTIFUL PIECES OF ART TO DECORATE OUR HOME.

newborn sessions

The first few days of a baby’s life are so magical and incredible!

I highly recommend tentatively planning your newborn session as early as three months prior to your approximate delivery date. That gives me enough time fully customize a newborn session just for you! 
Once you and baby have been giving the green light to go home, please contact me right away to schedule a definite date and time for your babies newborn session. Sessions are typically scheduled 2 to 10 days, following your release.

When scheduling the session the earlier the better. Newborns much younger tend to do very well in the studio, oppose to a baby that is 10-14 days old. They tend not to wake up frequently and as easily when getting them posed for the scene. A mere 48 hours in a newborns life is very crucial when prepping them for their session. I have witnessed many, many times after the 10 day mark, newborns have discovered the art of stretching! Once that happens…they won’t let us curl them up in the cute little newborn poses, without a fight!

What is required for booking?

DEPOSITS AND PAYMENT: To ensure we have your time and session availability, session amount is due upon booking. 
All  purchases made at your ordering session must be paid in full upon ordering.

What should I wear? How many outfit choices do I get?

I recommend 2 styling options for most sessions: children, family, baby. I have wardrobe options to choose from that you can view at your consultation. 
For senior portraits, I recommend 3 styled looks. 
For newborns, I recommend one for family, parents, siblings-- and then 2 additional in the studio for newborn.
