 what to expect? no stress!


West Hartford family & newborn photo sessions
  It's all in the planning


- Now comes the fun part! We meet at your location or home, have a quick "family meeting" and talk about what we’ll do, and then head to our special spots and make some magic with your favorite people.

My approach is natural & interactive!  We stay busy, we explore, we play games, we laugh and have fun.

I will guide you, but I will also let the moments lead the way. Of course, we’ll get those flattering and gorgeous “posed” photos that the grandparents love.


- Within 2 weeks of your session, your final image gallery will be ready!

After viewing the gallery, you can choose one of three different collections of downloads & print credit that work for you and your family. For newborn sessions you get everything!

- As soon as you purchase a collection, you can download the high resolution images you've chosen straight from your gallery to your computer. Use your print credit to shop in your very own print & product store right from your gallery! It’s super easy and the products are fantastic quality. Your memories deserve to be in your hands and on your walls!



- We’ll chat so I can learn about your family and figure out a perfect time and a beautiful place. Outdoor sessions are around sunrise or sunset. Then you'll reserve our session time with a session fee ($200) & contract.

- If we’re doing a session in your home you’ll send over a deposit along with few photos of your brightest rooms at midmorning. 

"Our family photo shoot with Jackie was such a beautiful experience. We were a bit nervous since
we were taking pictures on a very cold day with my entire family including my ailing father but

Jackie made us so very comfortable. We wanted to have natural and beautiful pictures,
capturing natural moments between our family and that’s exactly what we got."
