What Makes Abby Different?

There are many choices when it comes to investing in private portraiture. With Abby, your family is always her priority. From your first inquiry all of your contact will always be directly with Abby and unlike many studios, Abby is the only photographer. All of the work on her website is a direct representation of what to expect from your own family photo shoot. There are no time constraints on your photo session and Abby is always available to discuss ideas, answer questions and collaborate to make sure your photos satisfy your vision. Each experience is unique and special and sessions are relaxed and fun for your family. Abby is funny and playful and able to get real smiles and moments. Her photos have energy and showcase your child's spirit. A professionally trained photographer, Abby is committed to turning your family photos into artistic memories.

How long will your session last?

Sessions can run anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. Abby will not rush your child as she wants to capture them at their best. She also makes time for breaks and small snacks. Newborn sessions have plenty of breaks for soothing, feeding and changing.

What should we wear?

Choosing clothing is a big part of creating your portraits. If you'd like your photos to be timeless please avoid logos, pictures or other images that may distract attention from your children or your family. The most successful portraits combine simple colors, patterns and/or textures. Bare feet are always adorable. Please feel free to have a few outfit changes or options. Abby can also go over clothing choices with you to help you decide what will work best for your photo sessions.

A note on Newborns:

Newborns are best photographed during their first two weeks of life. During this time they are fragile, sleepy and their little bodies curl up tightly. It is a fleeting, special time. If you want to capture this brief moment in time, please contact Abby before your due date. She always tries to make room in her schedule for babies this young, but putting your due date on her calendar enables her to block out space just for you.
