Mia, my daughter loves the story of when we became a family of four upon her arrival. She loves to browse through her photo albums as I tell her about the times she would fall asleep on her daddy’s chest while her big brother helped shush her to sleep. Like her, I love the memories of her newborn days. The images of us becoming a family are some of my most precious keepsakes. To be honest, the first month of my children’s lives are kind of a blur, and having professional photos of their beginnings is what keeps the memories alive. The photos are what make my daughter’s eyes sparkle as I tell her HER STORY. These photos show her how much love surrounded her beginning…

lifestyle newborn sessions
Lifestyle newborn sessions are all about capturing the connection and love that surrounds a family during the first weeks of a babe’s birth. I photograph the raw and the beautiful of this special time. While I make sure to guide you with posing and prompts, I respect your space and wait for those real moments to happen, the ones with all the magic, the ones you will remember forever. You can expect our time together to last anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the baby and the situation. Lifestyle sessions are best when done early in the morning. I do not start sessions past 12pm. You do not have to worry about deep cleaning your house, you already have enough going on momma! I usually shoot in a few spots with the best light around your house. Just sit and relax! Let me do the work.
studio newborn sessions
The style of posed newborn sessions I prefer is clean and organic. The colors I work with are neutral, this way the images are timeless. I like to use fresh flower crowns for baby girls, which are included with the session fee. I follow the baby’s instincts and don’t push the poses. Please keep in mind that if you are looking for a highly posed and propped newborn session, I will not be the right fit, but I have plenty of recommendations for some amazing fellow photographers in our area. You can expect our time together to last anywhere from 3-4 hours, depending on the baby and the situation. Studio sessions are done on a weekday and they begin at 8:30-9am. You do not have to worry about bringing any props or outfits, I have it all at the studio! I will be working mostly with the baby, so you get to just sit and relax!
If there are siblings, I aim to photograph the new babe with her siblings first. This way the older siblings can be free and go play. I always recommend having another adult during the session so they can tend to the older siblings. Maybe grammy wants to help out and why not? Let’s take a few photos with her too! I will capture family photos, sibling photos (even furry siblings!) and photos of the babe alone. I wait until the baby is sleepiest.
