real emotion 
& family love
since 2008

I believe that you choose happiness, you don’t wait for it to choose you.

I feel the need to have a coffee with me at all times. Even if I'm not drinking it.

I believe there is no better sound than my daughters' uncontrollable laughter.

I'm on a first name basis with the massage guy at the nail salon.

I believe in getting right to the point because life is too short.

One glass of wine is never really enough.

I believe that in the end, I am the only one who can give my children a happy mother who loves life.

Most importantly, I believe that a photograph can be more than just a smile or cute baby on a prop. I want to make photographs of you with your family, having fun, just being in the moment with each other.  Because let's be honest...  if you're anything like me, you don't get to really enjoy parenthood as often as you'd like. It's hard, stressful, and exhausting. Let's take some time away from the everyday and capture that time so you have it to look back on for years to come!


Hi There! I'm Shira


All sessions take place either in your home or an outdoor location. 
Newborn sessions usually take place in your home on weekday mornings within the first 2 weeks after the baby is born. Sessions are about an hour to an hour and a half (newborns may take longer). 

I prefer to keep things simple and timeless. I want you and your child(ren) to be the main focus. As far as clothing, I love accessories, but not too overdone. I suggest avoiding clothing with any visible logos, words, or any characters/busy patterns that could be distracting. It is very important that everyone is comfortable! Try coordinating colors rather than all wearing the same color which tends to look unnatural. Feel free to bring several outfits just incase!

Feel free to bring anything to the shoot that has some special meaning, like your babies favorite toy or blanket.

Here is a Pinterest clothing idea board if you want to get some more ideas!
