Welcoming a new life into this world is an incredible blessing, and I love capturing this special time in your family's story. My newborn sessions are all about documenting the precious little details of your new baby and growing family. I'll focus on the emotions and connections with family as well as photographing the newborn separately. I offer traditional newborn sessions, as well as more documentary-style fresh 48 sessions.
My style is easy-going, with simple props and styling. I love to use neutral and muted palettes with lots of natural texture and layers, as well as vintage props and tasteful accessories to create timeless portraits of your little one.
Newborn sessions take place in the safety and comfort of your home. The sessions are baby-led, and have extra time included for setup and calming, feeding, diaper changes, etc.
I will bring everything we need for the session including a selection of wraps, outfits, props, and accessories. We can also incorporate your heirloom or special items if desired.
Newborn sessions are ideal with newborns 7-14 days old, when the babies are very sleepy and cuddly. But don't stress if your baby missed the ideal 7-day window! I know many babies have special circumstances preventing them from coming home right away, so I can adjust your session for an older newborn if needed.
Immediate family members are included. Extended family or pets may be added for an additional fee per individual.
Due to the unpredictability of babies, it is best to book your newborn session about two months prior to your due date to ensure availability. I will do my best accommodate the unexpected as it occurs! Check out the bundle deals we offer for a great savings on Maternity portraits!
Newborn Mini Sessions
Newborn Mini sessions include the same as above, but are shorter in length, include a smaller package, and are focused on the baby only (no photos with parents, siblings, etc).
In Mini sessions, the baby will be swaddled or wrapped and posed in up to 3 set-ups (as time permits).
Fresh 48 Sessions
Fresh 48 sessions capture the special moments from the first 48 hours after your baby is born.
The session is a simple, documentary-style photoshoot, taking place at the hospital or birthing center. The session is focused on the emotions and connections of the immediate family and the baby. I will also photograph the newborn separately. Sessions are "au natural", and there will be no props or setups used (with the exception of additional lighting, as needed).
Sessions include immediate family members only. Due to the vulnerable health of newborns, I advocate limiting the amount of exposure to people, especially in the first few days of life.
As with Newborn sessions, it is best to book your Fresh 48 session about two months prior to your due date to ensure availability.
