I love real life photos; they are almost always the most loved photos that I capture. I will help guide you into poses and then move into pure candid bliss! I typically change up my editing a bit so that you’ll receive something different each time you book a session with me while still feeling the same Blue Sugar vibe.
(Maternity and Newborn Combo Collection available at a special price; send me a message for details!)
A: I have a gallery of options from our Client Closet and will chat on the phone/text/FB/email with you to discuss options for your hubby and kids if they are participating so we have an awesome cohesive look.
A: I do! For maternity, I may bring a blanket if the ground is soggy but generally don’t like to use props during these sessions. For newborns, you can select props for 2 posed setups and I suggest bringing out fun family items to incorporate as well (such as: favorite stuffy, heirloom blankets or booties, wedding dress or veil, rings, etc)
A: This is completely based on your responses to the questionnaire and the vibe you’re going for. We can go to your home or to a one of a few select locations that I like to shoot at. I am also always open to new ideas if you’ve scouted the perfect location! The photos are all about you and your family and I want to convey that personal touch in your images.
A: Absolutely not! You can borrow any of the pieces for your newborn or family session as well as maternity! Don’t want to buy a dress for your fall family session? I’ve got you covered! Want something flattering and comfy for your newborn session? I’ve got you there too! Want to feel fabulous and beautiful during your maternity session? I’ve got something for everyone!
A: I like to post a preview on FB between 1 and 2 days after your session and your gallery will be delivered within 2 weeks. (But I strive to get them to you sooner!)

I was leery about Maternity sessions with my first pregnancy and did not do it. But Lavelle did my wedding and newborn photos with my first and with my second it was nice to have someone who is patient and comfortable to be around. Bluesugar has photographed all of the major milestones of my marriage; it is amazing! Lavelle is kind and patient and she also communicates well. -Jenny Bilstad
I love our photos from all of our sessions! Several photos are hanging up around our home. Initially, affordable price point and great portfolio brought us in and once we got to know Lavelle, her kindness and patience brought us back! -Maria Geeraerts
I was nervous I’d feel silly but both maternity and newborn sessions were fun and had great shots! I would definitely book a session with Lavelle again! -Megan Smith
I had no hesitations booking my sessions; I have used Lavelle and Blue Sugar Photography for years for Christmas pictures, smash cake photos, family photos, and a maternity session. She works so well with kids, she was able to get great lighting in scenarios where lighting was an issue, and she got poses that I would never have thought of. I think of Lavelle as more than just a family photographer. She’s completely a professional at what she does with a wonderful personality for working with her clients. She’s always accommodated all of my requests, outfit changes, crazy ideas, locations, etc. -Desiree Peyman
