Ivy Impressions Portrait Sessions


Portrait sessions are shot outdoors at a location we choose together, and capture families, children, teens and maternity and include up to 5 people. For family portraits we capture a mix of the whole family, just kids, individuals, and mom and dad too. Maternity sessions focus on showcasing the beautiful mama-to-be, and dad and siblings are welcome to join in.

We shoot a mix of posed portraits and also capture those precious candid moments that happen in between. These ‘real’ moments are often the favorites, and are what make your session special and your images stand out.

Ivy Impressions Newborn Sessions


Newborn portrait sessions are done in the comfort of your home or at our in-home studio, and are most successful when done when baby is two weeks old or younger. Parents and siblings are welcome to join in! We provide a variety of newborn wraps and blankets, and ask you to include any quilts, blankets, clothing or items that may be special to you. By using your personal items, your newborn baby's portraits are that much more meaningful to your family.

Newborn sessions are much lengthier than standard sessions, lasting from 2-3 hours to accommodate feedings, snuggles, and changings.

Your portrait memories are ready about two weeks after your session, and at that time you'll receive your online gallery login information and get to view your portraits. Yay! You'll be provided with a gallery password that can be shared with family and friends who may like to view your images or order products.  

I proudly offer beautiful print products that will showcase your portraits and allow you to enjoy your images for many years to come. Prints, canvases, wood prints and albums are created with professional print labs, using only the highest quality materials. Your products will be delivered to you within 2-4 weeks of ordering. Exact turn-around time depends on the product (prints take less time, albums take more time) and the time of year (labs are especially busy during the holiday season!). In addition to print products, high res digital portrait files are available for purchase from your gallery.
