Highlighted family and newborn photography sessions

Over the years, I’ve had so many families inquire about how to gift loved ones with a session. Experience gifts are so special, and while it’s easy enough to send an email that says “I got you this!” – there’s something even better about a tangible card to share the sentiment. Im excited to offer these gift certificates for photo sessions as a tangible reflection of your purchase for any Firefly collection.

How does it work?

Purchasing a gift certificate for family and newborn photo sessions is super simple. On this booking page, you’ll be able to choose the collection you’d like to gift and complete a short questionnaire. This lets me know who and where you’d like the certificate sent and applied to, what type of session it is, and a few other logistics.

You’ll complete the payment for the collection in full and your gift will be set in motion.

How does my recipient get their gift?

I send out cards within 48 hrs of purchase or at your request – if you want me to purchase early and send right before a certain event, just let me know in the questionnaire! If you’d like it sent to you so you can give it by hand, that’s cool, too!

How long does the recipient have to use their gift? 

Families can redeem their session anytime within one year of purchase. They just need to reach out to me and we’ll coordinate to schedule according to my availability and what works for their family.

Anything else to consider? 

Family photography is a really personal thing. I recommend having a conversation with the person you’d like to offer this gift to before purchasing it to ensure it’s something they would really enjoy and value. It’s also important that that like my style! You can do this covertly if you want it to be a surprise, but just make sure there is desire and alignment before investing on their behalf.

Hi, I'm Leah.
Family photographer, writer, educator.

I’m  one of the first to meet your newborn baby, the one who won't judge your clothes baskets and unmade beds, and the one who can capture the way your husband looks at you with a twinkle in his eye after 12 years of marriage. I believe in honoring people and telling stories.

I believe art has the power to light up the world in dark places, starting at home.
