everything starts with connecting…

Whether stopping by for coffee or a chat on the phone… this is where we begin… I believe that getting to know each other will make such a huge difference in your experience with us. It will settle your nerves and help you understand the importance of capturing memories. We always invite you into our modern boutique studio located in the historical Burns Court, downtown Sarasota… We chat over coffee and plan out your session. We figure out where in your home you are planning to hang your artwork so that I can be sure to have that in mind at your session. We talk about our beautifully designed albums that are such a great heirloom to have. We talk about clothing and location and basically talk about your dreams and goals of your session and get you on the schedule.

At the actual session I keep things very relaxed and calm. I interact with you very comfortably, since we already know each other. Our sessions are quite fun! Lots of laughing and giggles! Sessions usually take about an hour.

Two weeks after your session we invite you in for your ordering session where we help you with your order. We ask that you come prepared with any lists or measurements.

About 2 weeks after your ordering session Mattias comes to hang your artwork in your home or you are welcome to pick things up at our studio.

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart…

Our popular “Baby Plans” take you through your baby’s first year. Newborn, 6 months, and One Year! Beautiful milestones! Baby’s first year is fleeting by why not leave it up to us to schedule your sessions and remind you so that at his/her first birthday you will have such an amazing heirloom of memories to cherish and look back on through the years. At each milestone you get products depending on which collection you go with.

Newborn sessions are a must! those first two weeks your little one will grow so big and that fuzzy wrinkly skin will be just a memory… Newborn sessions are done either at our studio or at your home. They usually last around 2-3 hours leaving plenty of time for feedings and changes. If done at our studio I know how the lighting is and things move quite smoothly … I have everything set out… I am also happy to come to your home if that is easier for you. I will bring everything. Home sessions tend to be a bit of a Lifestyle session… so beautiful!

6 Month sessions are so cute! Little bare bellies. drooly mouths. belly laughs. sitting up sturdy. piggy toes. This milestone is when they begin to sit up or push up from their bellies. I do these sessions at parks, the beach, countryside… wherever you wish.

1 Year sessions are when your baby starts to take itty bitty steps or can stand up next to something like a chair. It’s usually around their 1st birthday.

Once your baby plan is complete we put together your album of a year of memories.

Our popular High School Senior session are such a fun way to capture this time for your child! They are growing up fast and time is fleeting! Why not have us create a special heirloom of frozen time just once more…

HS Senior session are fun! They are unique! They are totally your child, yet in a classic timeless way!

I have a way of relaxing even the most camera shy kid… I get everyone laughing! You will in return get beautiful images that are relaxed and never posed. The real them!

Sessions usually last 1-2 hours. Several outfit changes are fine. The session takes place in up to 2 location which we talk about first at our pre consultation.
