I'M YOUR ORLANDO MOMMY & ME photographer.  I provide a complete, full service portrait experience.  I offer in-studio hair and make up, a client closet full of high end dresses for you and your daughter to choose from, and premium wall art and products to preserve your photos. 


I'm so excited to discuss your Orlando mommy and me session! I'd be so honored to help create a collection of images that you and your kids will look back on. Memories that will hang on your walls forever. Memories that will be passed on to your grandkids. 


the process

Set a date that works with your kids' schedule. A day to allow you get pampered together and to spend the day together. Leave the entire day free without any other plans that way you can focus all your energy on the photo shoot.

My mommy & me sessions include hair and makeup for mom and a soft, natural pamper for your little one (if they chose)


set a date

My mommy & me sessions take place in studio or outdoors. 

Studio sessions are focused more on you and your little one.  It is a more controlled environment.

Outdoor sessions can be magical with the golden light and epic backdrops. There is more coordination required and weather is always something to consider.


studio or outdoors?

You'll get the L Balagtas Photography Style Guide and a styling consultation with me. 

We'll also discuss what to bring to your session.  And, we'll discuss different outfits, accessorizing, and coordinating.



Mamas, you have access to the Client Closet full of high-end, quality dresses. . You can choose any dress from the collection! I also offer bodysuits, draping fabrics, and angel wings!

I also offer gowns for girls.

There's also the option of wearing your own outfits!


client closet

The day is finally here! Time for you to relax, get pampered, and let me capture images with your little one(s)!

You'll arrive at my studio and my hair and makeup artist will pamper you for about 2 hours. After you're done, we can pamper your little one with a soft, natural look (if you choose). 


session day

The majority of the time, my families are not professional models, so being in front of a camera can feel weird. This is why I help coach you with posing that is natural and flattering.

Don't worry about being photogenic!  It is my job to capture your beauty and love.  I am a pro at camera angles and posing so all you have to do is laugh and enjoy yourself!



One week after the session day, I will call you to walk you through the photo proofing process.  I will show you a gallery of lightly edited images. Then, you will choose the images you love, and we will finalize your purchase.

Once you choose your final images, it will take me 3 weeks to deliver your gallery.  Each image is individually edited for blemishes, wrinkles, color, and, if you would like, slight slimming and body contouring.



Now offering:
             Premium Prints
             Heirloom Folio Boxes
             Wall Enlargements
             Custom Albums

Your images deserve to be printed and displayed with quality products that'll last generations.. You can choose to store them in a genuine leather folio box, print them in a flat lay album, or create a picture wall.  

Don't leave your photos on a hard drive that may one day corrupt. Have them available to pass on to your children.  You images deserve to be enjoyed daily. Hang them up, create an album, and print your photos!



the best age for a


mommy and me

Under 6 months


Babies under 6 months are typically easy to photograph. They're not yet mobile and they love being in mom's arms. We are able to easily grab their attention and they love cuddling.

This is a wonderful time to capture images of you and your little one.

6 Months


The 6 month age is a big milestone in the first year of life.  A lot of parents celebrate this half birthday with photos.

At 6 months, babies are just learning how to sit and are a lot more alert.  Personalities start to show which can shine in photos.

Babies aren't too mobile yet so they love being in mama's arms.  

I highly recommend a session at this time.

1 year old


The one year old stage is a very special time.  The majority of parents celebrate this.  Your baby has officially become a toddler and its a huge milestone.

This age is a little bit more challenging since babies are mobile and like to explore.  Some babies don't want to be held and their attention can be easily diverted away from the camera.

The entire photoshoot revolves around the baby's tempermate.  Plans, poses, and outfits may change based on how the baby is reacting.

Please keep this in mind when scheduling your session.

Toddlers 1-3 years Old


Toddlers age 1-3 are the most active.  They have a lot of personality and like to explore.  This makes photo shoots challenging.

Although challenging, the images we created during this time period are some of the most cherished.  Personalities shine through in the photos and parents love it!

Having correct expectations for the session can ease some of the stress and frustration that may come if your toddler is not as cooperative as we wish.  Sessions at this age are very much centered around the kids.  We improvise and go in the direction that the kids' energy allows.

Ages 4-12


Photo shoots with kids age 4-12 are fun! Kids can fully communicate and understand photos.  They can follow directions and they can be bribed! LOL They also have a longer attention span which results in more pleasant, less rushed sessions.



Teenagers are unpredictable. Some are fully emerged and enjoy photos while others can care less. You know your child best, so communicating with me their personalities and their interests can help me make the shoot enjoyable for them.  

young Adults


It is NEVER too late to have a photo shoot with your kids. Although the dynamic changes with adult children, the love and connection only grow stronger. 

Adults 30+ Years


At this point, it might not even be you, mom, planning.  Your daughter might be the one organizing this photo shoot hoping for a day to reconnect with her mom as she visits for the holidays.  Or, it might be your son, surprising you for Mother's Day.

These photos tend to be some of the most meaningful.  Through the years, you've raised you kids, watched them grow, and hoped for the best. Now, you get to witness them as adults, making their own decisions and living their own lives.  Spending time together isn't as easy as it once was and so, a day spent together, taking photos, is priceless.

Styling Consultation

Consultation to discuss your vision

creating timeless images that will be cherished for generations to come






As a parent, we know that the days are long but the years are short. With the blink of an eye, our babies turn into toddlers, teenagers, adults, and wives, and even mamas.

As moms, we know the importance of photos of our kids but we often neglect ourselves.  We deserve good pictures WITH our babies. We deserve photos where we look fabulous AND our kids are smiling. We deserve photos that you can frame and hang up- images worthy of sharing! 

I want to help create a collection of images for you.  Images that will be cherished now and for generations to come.

I want to capture the relationship that you have with your kids.  I want to create images at every stage of your life together.  Images of you with your baby before they take their first steps, images with your kids as they enter grade school, as they enter their teenage years, and as they enter adulthood.

I want to  show you the beauty of all the stages of motherhood. I want to be able to show that, despite the trials and tribulations of life, one thing remained constant-- your love for your kids.

One day, your kids will look for images with their mom,

The reviews

I have never felt so beautiful. As a mom, it’s easy to put ourselves last. Easy to concentrate more on our families needs than our own. When Lanh mentioned doing a solo session, I was a bit hesitant . But I am so glad I did. I felt so pampered and so pretty.

Being pregnant isn’t always sunshine and roses. My body has changed so much and sometimes that’s hard to accept. When I look at the images Lanh created, I see myself differently. Although my body has changed, it is amazing and it is growing another beautiful daughter.

Thank you so much, Lanh, for allowing me to see the beauty in my pregnant body and for making me feel so gorgeous!


Where do I begin? This is my first pregnancy and it has been a little rough, to say the least, dealing with all the COVID.  I was so lucky to find Lanh. I sent her an email and she emailed me right back. She fit me in that weekend at 38 weeks pregnant!!

I had been feeling so self conscious of my changing body and she made me feel beautiful which, honestly, is priceless. I was completely pampered from the moment I walked in, got my hair and make up done, and got to wear her fabulous dresses. She made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera and took the most gorgeous pictures!

I cannot wait to come back for a Mommy and me shoot! If I could give her a 10 out of 5 I would. Thank you so much for reminding me of the beauty in pregnancy and capturing these memories that I will cherish forever!

jailee + kevin

My maternity session was one of the best moment of my pregnancy. This was my first pregnancy so everything was new to me and I had hard time accepting my new body. Gaining 30LB in such a short period of time was very hard on me physically and mentally, however Lanh helped me celebrate my body, my journey of becoming a mother and also capturing the love between my husband and I.

We had to cancel wedding due to covid back in 2020, and we decided to start our family instead. It was always my dream to wear beautiful dress and take pictures. Lanh made sure I got that and I cannot thank her enough for this.

I am so happy that I got these amazing photos to remember and share with my son one day!

If you are not sure about maternity photos, I truly recommend booking a session with her not just to get beautiful photos but also to treat yourself and prepare for labor❤️ Celebrate your body’s amazing work is so important, I am so happy to find such a great photographer who taught me this and I cannot wait for next maternity or family photos we can take!

yuki + miguel

Lanh was incredible to work with and very personable. She not only captured these beautiful photos but she made the whole shoot a fun experience. Most of my pregnancy I had struggled with my body changing but Lanh helped me embrace the changes. I swear I have never felt more beautiful than I did on that day! This was truly an experience I will never forget and now I have these gorgeous photos to cherish forever.

sarah + robb

Lanh was incredible. My husband and I are very awkward camera people but her wardrobe skills, coaching, encouragement, and the entire vibe of her studio were so impeccable it put us at ease immediately. Her turnaround times on proofs and final images were also above and beyond what we expected, and having everything included  made the stress level of getting everything taken care of nonexistent.

Lanh was also super responsive over phone/text and email. I cannot recommend her enough — or Mel, the hair & makeup artist!  (Be warned: However many photos you think you're going to buy, it's going to be more, lol. They're that good.)

jen + josh

Everything about my experience with Lanh was nothing short of fabulous. When I was looking for a maternity photographer, I knew I wanted someone who offered a client closet. While there are a few photographers who offer that, none of their websites were as detailed and thorough as Lanh's. She was very helpful as I tried on dress after dress in her studio as we worked to find the perfect ones to make me feel amazing.

As the day of the shoot drew near, she kept me updated with email reminders and again was always very timely with her responses.

Lanh thinks of everything and will have you covered from head to toe. Hair and makeup was flawless and will make you feel like a goddess.

For the actual shoot, she brings a pop-up tent so you can change into your various outfits and made us feel so at ease. I know most people will say they aren't naturals in front of the camera or know how to pose but again, Lanh will guide you the entire way.

Gallery delivery was super fast as was her turnaround for the final images that we selected. And lastly, the photos are beautiful. You will not regret working with Lanh!


tiffani + steve

I don't think I've ever felt more beautiful. 

These pictures made this entire pregnancy feel like what I always thought being pregnant should feel like. With the COVID virus we couldn't do anything. But I wouldn't trade these pictures for all the baby showers in the world. I think thanking you is such an understatement. You are so wonderful and made me feel so confident!


Lanh was amazing and went above and beyond during our maternity photoshoot. Her photos are breath taking and look like they came out of a fairytale. She truly captures your family in a beautiful way and really listens to what your vision is.

This was our first professional photoshoot and we wanted to capture photos that were memorable for our family and son. She made sure everything was perfect during the session. I loved the gowns she lets you try on-it made me feel so beautiful for the day! She knew how to capture the best photos and took different shots with the lighting. She is amazing and an expert at professional photos.

I can’t say enough good things about her. Our photos came out so beautiful. She also made us a professional photo album and 2 beautiful canvases that are now hanging in our living room. I’m in love with our photo albums and look at it constantly!!!I’ve had so many compliments from friends and family. Book her, she is worth every penny!

samantha + chris


Lanh's gown closet was extensive and I got to CHOOSE MULTIPLE LOOKS FOR MY SHOOT! Her photos were stunning and while I was worried about the price tag a bit, if you consider the cost of the dresses you would purchase plus consider cost for hair and make up it's a deal.

Day of the shoot she brings a portable tent for you to change into your different gowns. She sets your shoot at what she calls "the Golden hour." This seemed silly at first. But, trust the professional!! The lighting was perfect!! She was patient and directed me and my family.

The icing on the cake of an already amazing experience... the actual photos ( which is what matters, am I right). Ugh ...they were stunning! I was in love with all of them! You pay for what you get! I promise you won't be disappointed! Worth every single penny I spent! I cannot thank you enough, Lanh! Truly, your so gifted at what you do!! Still so in love with my photos!


Where do I begin? Lanh was such an amazing photographer to work with. She was not only professional, she was super kind and patient as well. You can tell this is her passion because she puts her entire heart and soul into her work.

She was able to work with my crazy schedule and had everything set up from hair and makeup to finalizing photos and making sure all the details were just right.

I felt so comfortable around her and I think that is very important. I couldn’t be happier to have found her and my pictures are so absolutely perfect.

I am beyond happy with the final product. Thank you again Lanh for everything and I hope to work with you again one day!


I appreciate Lanh and her work! The day I called to speak with her about a maternity photoshoot, she quickly helped us set a date and time. 

When I arrived for the photoshoot, she had everything prepared. She even offered water and snacks! I was very impressed with her professionalism and kindness. She made the entire experience amazing. I was astonished that Lanh had such a wonderful wardrobe to borrow from for the photos! (Such a plus!!) She made us feel very comfortable! 

Lanh was very responsive to all of the questions I had during the entire process. She is a dream to work with and is passionate about her artwork. Needless to mention, her photography speak for itself!


Lanh was absolutely wonderful to work with! I was extremely hesitant on doing a maternity shoot and I had no idea how it would be. Lanh exceeded all of my expectations! Not only did she successfully create the images I had in my head but she offered her own suggestions that turned out so beautiful. She is experienced and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. I recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! I had so much fun and I can't wait to shoot with her again.


Lanh shot our maternity shoot today and honestly we have never had a better experience. She was SO friendly and so professional. My husband and I were a bit nervous and honestly felt a little unprepared but Lanh took care of posing and positioning for the perfect lighting-I mean she even had a STAND to get the perfect shot from above!

We were put at such ease and my husband was so impressed (he is very camera shy). Even straight from the camera the shots looked AMAZING.

the hernandez's

We are so lucky to have Lanh be the best photographer. She convinced us to get some family photos captured before the new baby arrives and I have to say.... it was the best decision I’ve made during this pregnancy. 

Her dedication, attention to detail, passion in her work, patience, one of a kind vision, couture gowns, capturing our family one last time before we add another little one to our family is so priceless. 

Thank you Lanh for pushing for these moments I will always cherish.

the tungs

I’m so so happy I chose Lanh to do my maternity photos! It was very convenient to have hair and makeup done in one place and there is an endless amount of gorgeous gowns to choose from! All you really need to do is show up and everything else is taken care of!

Seeing the final product made me feel so beautiful and excited for my daughter to see these photos one day Overall, the environment was really fun and I can’t wait to come back in the future. I recommend Lanh to anyone looking to capture any special moment!

jenny + kelvin

Lanh is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone!!! She photographed my elopement and every detail and shot was perfect!

She is very detailed orientated and made sure we had all the shots we wanted, especially of those details that were important to me and my husband! Every photo was absolutely beautiful and she even wrote an amazing blog post about our special day that shared our story so beautifully.

I am looking forward to hiring Lanh again to capture more beautiful memories of my family in the future.

the pinels

I had the most amazing maternity experience with Lanh. She does such amazing work and makes you feel so beautiful. I’m no model but she sure made me feel like one! She helped me pose and made sure each detail was right.

From the makeup to the dresses to her studio, it was a dream day. My pictures turned out even better then a ever imagined. I am seriously so happy I found her and booked with her. You won’t regret it!  


Booking my maternity session with Lanh was everything I could have ever dreamed of! I knew I wanted her to photograph my last maternity session even before I was pregnant.

The whole process was so easy and I didn’t have to worry about hair and make-up or what to wear! She has a whole wardrobe closet that clients can choose from. What’s even more impressive is that she did our summer session while pregnant herself! We were only a few weeks apart and she made sure that we were both hydrated and had rest in between shots.

Don’t even hesitate, if her gallery alone isn’t enough to convince you, her professionalism and just wonderful personality should! She is worth the investment!


I really enjoyed working with Lanh for my maternity shoot. She was always very responsive to my emails and calls prior to booking, during and after. She made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera and the photoshoot was so much fun. I enjoyed having my hair and makeup done as well at the studio.

I would highly recommend Lanh for photos and look forward to having future photo shoots with her.


Lanh is such a kind & talented artist who made me feel so incredibly beautiful during such a special moment in my life. Her maternity photoshoot package included such an amazing wardrobe to choose from. 

Overall the day of the photoshoot went very smoothly. My husband and I felt incredibly comfortable around Lanh. I think this was so important as it is such an intimate and special moment that’s being captured.

I am so blessed to have such beautiful photos that capture this season in my life. I will cherish them forever and I hope my daughter will too. Overall I am so happy I made the investment in an artist who had an all inclusive package with outfits and hair and makeup. It took the stress away from shopping for maternity gowns that I will never wear again. The convenience and low stress made every penny worth it and resulted in some beautiful photos.

brittany + corey

At the end of the day we are just left with memories. If that’s the case, I would want to make the most of that memory and hold onto the feelings in that moment with my family.

From the session with Lanh, not only was I able to have beautiful pictures of my daughter, but I’ll honestly have to admit, it rekindled a flame with my husband! Being first time parents was definitely an experience and finding the balance for one another was an obstacle. But having these pictures, I’m reminded of the amazing man that he is. I can’t stop looking at the pictures of him and our daughter together! I can feel my heart beating faster and I can’t stop smiling!

For me, it was stressful trying to plan a family photography session and coordinating outfits, but Lanh was patient with us and guided us through it all. She was amazing with our daughter! She got her to smile and that in itself made the experience all so worth it! I mean come on, what parent wouldn’t melt at the sight of their baby’s laughter and smile?!🥰 Lanh, thank you. Truly, thankful for your genuine passion with photography. Only a great photographer is able to capture what love would look like.

linda + khanh

I can not say enough how much we loved having Lanh as our wedding photographer! She was helpful every step of the way sharing her professional insight which not only made our photos amazing but helped relief some stress the day of the wedding.

Ladies we all know we only want to look our very best in our wedding photos after all these are photos you want to look back fondly and instantly take you back to that day. Lanh made me feel comfortable and even gave direction on how to angle my face arm etc to make sure I would love how I looked in the photos.

She was quick and percise we could not believe how good the photos looked when we got the gallery!

She offers a premium album as well which we have and we love to show it off the quality is amazing and we love having memories that are tangible not on a usb or dvd, something that we can share quickly with family members and friends. If you are in search for a photographer for your special day I HIGHLY recommend her!

janice + richard

We had such an amazing experience with L Balagtas Photography. Lanh is extremely professional and completely understands what poses are flattering and comfortable for the mom to be. She had everything planned out perfectly! Hair and make-up were amazing! All the dresses are amazing, but the GREEN dress gave me the most compliments. She had cold bottled water for me and the family, she had a pop up closet to change on site.

I enjoyed my experience because it was all inclusive. She provided me a variety of locations to choose from based off of my vision, she provided the wardrobe selection, she provided hair and make-up. I didn’t have to do much of anything, which was great being so far along in pregnancy. I highly recommend her for a maternity shoot!

tamika + marquis

I came across Lanh’s work on Instagram and instantly fell in love with how elegant her work was. I instantly messaged for a consult/quote. We had a phone consult which was very thorough and expectations were clear.

Lanh is so friendly, efficient and professional. My entire experience was amazing. My husband was so happy as well, and we both are absolutely not photogenic at all. This was for my first pregnancy and I’m so glad I pampered myself with this amazing experience!

dhilona + kevin

Having my maternity pictures with Lanh was an absolute wonderful experience. She was excellent with her communication from the very beginning. She explained exactly what I would be expecting from start to finish. Her website is easy to navigate & super user friendly.

I AM IN LOVE WITH HER WARDROBE. It was super hard to choose from all of her beautiful gowns, but she will help you with your final decision as well!.

Lanh, being a mom herself was also interactive & helpful with my daughter during our session, which allowed her to stay relaxed & cooperative (as much as 2 year olds can be lol) She helped me feel comfortable during my session which I was nervous about because I'm not good at taking pictures.

I am stunned by the final results, they are memories I will treasure forever! My husband feels the same way with her session as well!

manisha + ali

Lanh was a fantastic professional! she was very quick to respond and answer all my questions. We had a video chat to discuss what I had in mind and how we could work together. She has everything organized so we don't have to worry about anything: she has beautiful dresses, a makeup and hair artist who works with her, all final products for you to choose!

All you have to do is decide how you want to be photographed!

Also, the final photos became BEAUTIFUL! She captured all the happiness and love as we were expecting our little one!

Thank you Lanh for creating such beautiful memories for my family in such an important moment!

Incredibly talented and such a warm, welcoming and easy going person! I’ll start this review by saying she’s as close to a miracle worker as you can get. A few months ago when I contacted Lanh I had a vision in my head and it took only a couple of hours to finalize details and we were set.

The day of the shoot came and the weather ruined our plans but she still managed to get some really beautiful and absolutely stunning shots (Miracle) she worked through the rain, the humidity, mosquitoes, a very tired and hot momma, and my poor husband who has no idea how to pose and hates to smile for pictures. (Again, miracle.) We ended up with breathtaking photos. AND I got pictures of my husband smiling! 

I’ve adored everything of working with her and I cannot stop telling everyone about her  I’m so happy to have connected with her and I’m glad we now have a family photographer to capture our little family. Lanh, thank you so much for such a wonderful job and creating amazing memories for our son.

I was apprehensive about taking maternity photos because of COVID restrictions but with a push from my mom, we set a photoshoot. 

Lanh's energy made me comfortable immediately! She had all the proper precautions so I felt safe. 

The time she took with dresses, location, and scenery was absolutely amazing.  She made sure everything was picture perfect!

The dresses from the client closet were absolutely stunning and made me feel gorgeous. I'm so happy with this experience!


I am soooo happy with the experience I had with Lanh; and I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to a photographer to capture the essence and beauty of pregnancy.

2020 was such a busy year for me, that it wasn’t until a month before I actually gave birth that I was finally thinking; that I should have taken maternity pics. I thought it was impossible to find someone to do them that late, so I accepted that I wouldn’t have any. Then, a friend of mine found Lanh’s page on IG; and encouraged me to try her as a one stop location for the hair, makeup, attire, and the dresses needed for my shoot.

Lanh was quick to respond when I reached out. I couldn’t have asked for a more efficient and effective photographer, everyone is just as in love with my photos as I am. I will cherish them for a lifetime.

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us.

The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.

The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.

I can't say enough amazing things about Lanh's work. She's top notch in every respect. A true professional from the moment you interact with her.

From the very first time working with her as her HMUA, she left me speechless and continues to do so. She is fun, detail oriented, and always makes her clients feel right at home in the most cozy, clean, and airy environment. She makes sure every client has snacks to enjoy and an endless closet full of amazing wardrobe choices to choose from.

In hiring Lanh, you will treasure the unforgettable moments with pictures to last a lifetime


Lanh let me start off by seeing THANK YOU, a little back story of my pregnancy. My whole pregnancy i was high risk every time I would stand for too long my daughter would try to come out and I would feel like I'm going to faint, But one thing is for certain I wanted pictures of my pregnancy like I didn't get to have one with my first.

Meeting lanh made me feel safe and comfortable. During the photo shoot, I almost passed out and she immediately stop shooting and took care of me.

She treated my family as one of her own...and didn't rush me, her main concern was for me to feel better.

We got our pictures and I couldn't be happier with the results..I'm in love with my pictures. Thank you lanh for being great at what you do, for not only being a photographer but for also treating me as a friend after the shoot.

What I love about Lanh is that she has a detailed timeline of what to expect and has great follow through. Furthermore, she offers in studio makeup/hair that is included in the maternity session fee. In addition, she also has a full closet of outfits. I personally like this full service experience as doing my own hair/ makeup can be time consuming. (Lanh's makeup and hair artist, Melanie, is absolutely fantastic!)

On the day of the shoot, Lanh was wonderful as she guided my husband and I on poses and she allowed for breaks which I appreciated being that I was 30 something weeks pregnant at the time. She also brought snacks which was super thoughtful. The overall photoshoot was alot of fun and my husband and I really enjoyed the experience. In terms of pricing, it was very reasonable and we were really impressed with our photos. Lanh is truly gifted and I loved how the photos came out! I'll definitely be going to her again for family pictures!

Frequently Asked



What do I wear?



I have a client closet with gowns for mom and daughters age 6months to about 8 years.  You are welcome to choose any gown from the closet.

You can also wear your own outfits. We can set up a styling video call where we discuss outfits and coordination.

Some ideas other than dresses: simple jeans and shirt with matching Jordans/Converses, matching bodysuits/leotards, all black, matching jean or leather jackets.


What ages do you recommend this experience for?



Mama, they are your babies forever.  You can bring in your kids for photos whether they're 1 month or 35 years old. It is never too early or too late to take photos with your kids!

For younger kids, it does take a little extra planning and coordination but we will go over all that during the consultation and before the session.


I've gained weight since I had kids. What can we do?



Mama, your body is beautiful.  It birthed and raised beautiful kids. Your kids want photos WITH you.  They don't care how much you weigh.

But if you are self conscious, I am great at camera angles plus I can do body contouring in photoshop.  You tell me what you want me to edit and I'll make it happen!


Can my husband be in the photos?



The mommy & me experience is centered around you, mom, but we can have dad come for a few photos.  My attention will, first, be on getting amazing photos of you and your babies before adding dad in to the mix.


What is the difference between the mommy & me experience and a family session?



The mommy & me experience includes hair and makeup and is centered around getting fabulous images of mom with her babies. Its a day to pamper mom.  Daughters get pampered too with a soft glam. 

Mom is able to enjoy the day without worrying about preparing the entire family. Mommy & me sessions also include multiple outfit changes.

Family sessions are more focused on the entire family and getting good, full family photos. It does not include hair and makeup, it is only available for sessions outdoors, and it does not include access to the client closet.


When should I schedule?



My calendar fills up about 6-8 weeks in advance.  Please reach out as soon as you're ready and we can set up a consultation and get the ball rolling on planning your session.
