your experience

We honor our families with authenticity.

We strive to create genuine and timeless images. The colors, the light, the details, the moments, the interactions— it’s all authentic and true to your story. Nothing overly posed or cheesy. Just you, your people, and the beauty that it is.  No overdone or trendy edits— timeless colors and images that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Similarly, we strive to remain transparent and honest in our interactions. We are part of each family’s birth team and recognize the influence of our relationship with the family and the effect it has on the birth space.

We honor our families with simplicity.

We want your experience to be simple, uncomplicated and enjoyable! We never want you to feel overwhelmed by choices or pressured into buying products. All sessions include the digital negatives with rights to print and share images. Every session you have with We Are Handpicked is shared with you via a gallery on your custom web page and backed up forever. No stress about choosing your favorites or downloading images before they expire. Your photos are there and ready for you to download, share or order prints when you are ready. We want you to have your pictures— that’s why we do what we do.

We honor our families with empathy.

We understand that pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are an emotional, joyous and potentially sensitive time for each family. We always strive to read the birth space and protect the sacred nature of birth and all the beauty that surrounds it. We are documenting your family’s story with minimal distraction,  extreme dedication and utmost empathy.
