The fall season is in full swing and newborn sessions are not slowing down, which is great! I love documenting the newborn stage for families. Its certainly not the easiest session for mommies as you just had a baby and are likely pretty tired. But, these early days are so important and it will all be worth it in the end. Once you see the final photos of your sweet little newborn your heart will skip a beat and you will be so thankful you decided to document the early days in your baby’s life because gosh do they grow so quickly. Your baby will also appreciate having these images to look back on and see what life was like when they were born.

My job is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the shoot, and also ease some of the headache with selecting outfits, etc. You have full access to the client wardrobe which includes some selections of dresses as well as some sibling outfits as well. I have plain white onesies as well as other onesies for baby, wraps, some hats, and also some adorable headbands which are all light/muted/neutral colors to go along with my style and preference for newborn sessions. If you need hair and makeup I can arrange to have someone come to your home for that as well! If your home is not ideal for a lifestyle newborn session, we have options including renting a light filled studio so that you can still document this special time for you and your family.
