LIFE IN BLOOM PORTRAIT SESSIONS
Hello & Welcome! I'm so happy you found me!
Raise your hand if you like things simple, because I sure do! Each and every session with LIB is all inclusive, meaning every session comes with your high resolution digital images in an online gallery for you to cherish and print for a lifetime. Style, location, and personalities are what inspire me and will guide our fun and relaxed session. My goal is always to capture the love, giggles, cuddles, and fun you have as a family.
A deposit of $100 reserves your session date and is applied towards your session balance. To ensure my clients receive the personal attention they deserve, I only accept a limited number of sessions each month. It is advisable to book your session in advance. Studio sessions are scheduled on weekday mornings and outdoor evening sessions are typically booked for Tuesday/Thursday evenings one hour before sunset. Feel free to email me if you need to check different availability!
I specialize in natural newborn and family photography. My goal is to create timeless images that you can cherish forever.
My style is pure, simple, and light. I love soft, neutral colors and textures and I incorporate them into all of my work. My focus will be on your sweet baby and all of their tiny little features and parts that will change so quickly. I am not a big user of large props, I like to use natural fabrics and baskets. I believe that less is more and that your baby should be the focus of the art that we create. My approach and style to newborn photography is very natural. Your baby will be kept warm and comfortable and I will not be posing your brand new baby into forced positions or awkward props.
Mallory has a natural light studio with a warm and welcoming environment for families to relax and enjoy their session. LIB studio is fully stocked with beautiful baby clothing, wraps, headbands and sweet natural accessories for your baby. Wardrobe is a huge component to our session. Every client will receive a style guide and Mallory loves to help and guide you along the way.
