Oh, baby! I look forward to newborn sessions so much! The sweetness of a precious babe -- and all the love that fills up a room when they're present is so contagious that I can't help but leave a newborn session positively delirious!
I recommend scheduling newborn sessions within the first few weeks of your child's birth.
I take a very natural approach to all my newborn photos. I tend to work with a minimal number of props. I love to incorporate both mom and dad into some of the pictures, as well. If you have other children who are game for pictures, we'll certainly include them in this newborn picture party, too.

a baby fills a place in your heart that you never knew was empty
During our initial consultation, we can discuss the props I have available and what you'd be interested in using during our shoot. For example, I have various backdrops, blankets, baskets and other items. I am also 100% open to you bringing your own props. In fact, I love it when parents have their own props! After all, using the child's blanket instead of one that I have may prove more meaningful to you.

I love incorporating mom, dad and your other children into our session photos. While in most cases you, dad and baby will be the stars of the day, I believe it's so important to have several photographs with the entire family -- especially during your maternity and newborn sessions.

I try to do these expressions at every newborn session that I can. There are times baby doesn’t like being on their back or we just run out of time.
These are always a favorite since you get to have images with their eyes open and with these, we can get some great expressions from your baby. They make great storyboards too.
Babies can be so expressive
breathtaking • moments • captured
Congratulations on your new arrival! Those first few weeks after your child is born are life changing. It's as if your whole world has opened and you've discovered that life wasn't incredible before your baby entered the world.
I want to capture that feeling for you. Your baby will change so much in those first few weeks of life and I love being able to capture all of those little details you’ll want to remember as your child grows. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I believe that a picture is worth far more.
My studio is fully stocked with all the props, backdrops, wraps, headbands, hats, and layers you’ll need for baby’s photos. Newborn photography sessions are best scheduled in the first 5-15 days after baby is born.
It is best to book your newborn session during the last few months of your pregnancy. You can also book it at the same time you book your maternity session. This will ensure that I keep time open around your due date.
Once baby is here you will contact me to officially schedule the date on the calendar. At this point we can finalize your custom planned session. I always suggest getting newborn photographs within the first two weeks of your child's birth. I know that's a hectic time for new parents but hear me out. Those early days are life changing for everyone involved.
Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to book early I can still photograph your baby.
