Hi, thanks for stopping by!
Families (well ok, usually new or soon-to-be Moms) come to me for help documenting the joy of their growing families in a bright, personal, and candid way. Life moves so quickly and I am always honored when a family chooses me to create beautiful portraiture of this special moment in time.
I work on-location and mostly with natural light because I love the ambiance and character that we can create this way. The best photos happen when people are relaxed and happy, so family sessions are like playdates! Together we may choose to go to a favorite park or one of the many beautiful locations our city has to offer. Newborn and baby sessions are typically done in your home where baby will be most comfortable.
I look forward to working with you!

When we were planning maternity session we looked through a number of different portfolios trying to get ideas of what type of photos we want to have. We liked a couple of photos here and there but there happened to be one site where we fell in love with the overall style of photographs, not just specific scenes. Our search was done. That was the web site of Wild Plum Photography. When we contacted Hari directly to arrange the session and described what we wanted she did pretty much all preparations for us: suggested the place, picked the right time, gave us recommendations on clothes and what else we needed to bring. During the session we actually forgot that it was a real business and not just a nice walk in a good company from one site to another. Hari was super helpful and supportive and we felt that we were in good hands. We were just having a good time! After the session we got a pretty quick follow up from her with teasing photos and were promised to see more soon. Teasing photos were great and when the full set arrived we ended up ordering more photos than we were planning - just couldn't stand! :-) Hari has a pretty broad selection of photography products available - from simple prints (we didn't order them though) to photo books that we and our relatives liked a lot! It is also possible to download photos in original resolution for your home photo archive. This was more than 2 years ago. Since then we’ve had two more sessions and I'm happy and proud to see my son's pictures featured on Hari's web site and Photographer Central profile! We're looking forward to having more sessions with Hari for the good memory! Wild Plum Photography seems to be our first and only family photographer. Thank you, Hari!
