My studio is located at
7020 Flaherty Rd.
Vine Grove, KY
It is a brick building in the same plaza as Astor Auto Sales.
I am next to Otter Creek Tavern across the Meade County Line.
Cake smash sessions are available for upgrades for one year milestone sessions. Clients may choose to purchase their own cake or pay to have the photographer order the cake through a local professional.
Newborn pricing information can be found under the Belly and Bumps section. All other inquiries should use the “contact me” form. While I do specialize in newborn and maternity photography, I do take on other jobs upon request.
Yes! I am constantly adding new pieces to my studio collection to ensure I have a variety of styles and outfits available. You really can just show up with a diaper bag and a baby. Currently, I do not have clothing available for family pictures, but it’s something I’d like to add soon. If you have any specific colors or requests, please contact me in advance so I can plan.
I would say 80% of the newborn sized props you see in my images were ones that I had especially made for my clients. Sometimes parents bring uniforms, work equipment or props, but typically I have a lot of the items needed for your newborn pictures.
No! While themed newborn photos are fun, they aren’t everything I create in the session. 80% of the session is traditional/ non-themed imagery, and the remaining portion of the session is a theme. Sometimes that number varies depending upon the family’s personal taste. My goal is to capture you baby’s images according to your style preference. If after we have captured your vision I have time left, I may ask to do a special themed image that I have been wanting to do. The choice is always yours!
I try to be as efficient as possible during a session. If the baby is fed right before photography time starts, it really helps make the newborn pictures run smoothly. I typically allot two to three hours for a session, but my average is an hour and half long from start to finish.
If after one hour of trying to soothe the baby we just cannot get them to rest, I will offer to reschedule. I understand that cluster feeding and doctor’s appointments can really disrupt your baby’s schedule and sleep pattern.
I like to photograph newborns in the first ten days of life. However there are some exceptions to this policy. Babies who have been born premature tend to need more time in the hospital. If this is the case, I try to get the session scheduled as soon as the baby is healthy to go home and be photographed. As a general rule of thumb, I recommend the sooner the better, but please know I have photographed “newborn styled” images up to six weeks.
My studio is conveniently located 10 minutes away from the Fort Knox gate on the Meade and Hardin County line. My building is right next to Otter Creek Tavern in Vine Grove. I’m roughly 15 minutes away from Elizabethtown, KY. and 30 minutes away from Valley Station in Louisville. One of the best things about my studio’s location is that I am only two minutes away from one of the best playgrounds in Hardin County. If a family has selected to do a classic session, they will photograph any of the children’s pictures then have a parent take them to the park while we finish the session. It’s a great idea to keep it fast paced and allow them to play.
I typically deliver 20 images for the petite and 30 images if we do family pictures, but the number varies. Usually more!
Yes! I love working with my military families. Being close to Fort Knox has been such a blessing to my business. Active duty parents can save 10% off their session fee on any of my milestone sessions.
It depends upon whether you choose an all digital session or general session. General sessions include the time and talent of your photographer as well as an in person ordering appointment; it does not include any printed or digital products. Digital sessions include the time and talent of the photographer as well as a collection of digital files. Both sessions include an in person ordering appointment where you will be able to select your images and order.
General family sessions are structured around one immediate family unit. During a family session the photographer will photograph at least two family groupings, siblings, parents and individual pictures. A standard family session takes an average of thirty minutes. Generational family sessions will take longer and will be priced on an individual basis.
My studio has a variety of maternity gowns from a variety of vendors. I have selected different gowns to fit different sizes and styles. Clients are more than welcome to choose one of my gowns or purchase one on their own.
