Lilac & Ivy


All of the below packages are available for all session types - motherhood, families and maternity bookings. I found this was the best option because life doesn't just isolate itself into a category. Maternity, family and motherhood are not silo's - they are muddled all together in the kaleidoscope of life.


This package is perfect for maternity sessions and families with smaller children. Photographing in a studio eliminates weather and lighting concerns, I highly encourage these sessions when working around nap times or winter weather. These are perfect for families who prioritize print-worthy images with gorgeous color balance and light.

"help[ed] our little out of her shell"

We have a very particular toddler who shies away from new faces so we were worried what kind of photos we would get but omg they came out stunning! Mercae did such a wonderful job staying calm and helping our little out of her shell to get some wonderful memories in photos.
