We all remember the “glamor shots” of the 80s and 90s. Our parents dressed us up in fancy outfits and brought us to a studio where we posed for what felt like hours until we were sweating and our cheeks hurt from smiling. While they had great intentions, let’s be honest, they are not our fondest memories.

The truth is, our kids are little for such a small amount of time and photographs give us the ability to freeze the present moment forever.

I believe photography can be fun and that kids should enjoy the process because it makes it that much more real!

During your in-home portrait photoshoot, your little one will enjoy every moment while I capture their grins as they throw confetti up in the air, make silly faces, and be their truest and most authentic selves.

The Pop Up Studio setting in your home is perfect to create a fun and safe environment for your kid to play while I capture some joyful, free-spirited pictures of your little one that you will cherish forever.

Frequently Asked Questions


I am following CDC recommendations to ensure safety for you and your family:

  • Face mask for the duration of the shoot
  • Equipment sanitized prior to each shoot
  • Hands & arms sanitized on site
  • Practicing social distancing

I also ask the family to open windows in the room where we are taking photos to ensure fresh air flows. If you have any additional requests, I’m happy to accommodate.


I set up my portable Pop Up Studio in about 15 minutes. The studio includes a white backdrop and professional lighting equipment. All you need to provide is a 7×7 feet space and an outlet for the light!


The entire session for 2 kids will take about one hour including set up and clean up of the Pop Up Studio.

Your child will only be in front of the camera for max 20 minutes. I will have them take turn with brother or sister and keep the session fun. This is more than enough time so I can capture the perfect photos of your little ones!


For the best photos, I suggest wearing a simple shirt or dress with no large logos or bold patterns. I encourage you to prepare props such as a favorite hat or sunglasses. I will also bring props for them to play with!
