Newborn sessions are a huge passion of mine, and are most definitely a labor of love. The newborn stage is so fleeting, and we are often too sleep-deprived to truly take it in as much as we'd like! Getting newborn images taken of your new addition is a wonderful way to celebrate their arrival and share your joy with family and friends. It is something you will never regret investing in.
I utilize a portable studio set up. I will come to your home and set everything up that you would find in a newborn photography studio, right in the comfort of the your home. I use a combination of studio and natural light, depending on what is the best fit for the environment I'm working in. I only need a bit of space...we often are able to push furniture around and set up in a client's living room or dining room. Doing sessions in home is a convenience I feel is important to offer to families. It is extremely stressful to travel with a new baby, and even more so if you have other siblings.
Typical newborn sessions take 2-3 hours, allowing for lots of breaks to feed, snuggle, and comfort the baby. I work with some of the world's best vendors to put together a collection of vintage and natural inspired outfits, headbands, hats, wraps and props, all of which are available to you for your session. Session setups will be custom-designed to coordinate with your home decor, nursery and color preferences and will be cohesive and complementary to be hung on your walls or put into an album.
I normally book several months in advance, as I schedule a very limited number of newborns per month to ensure flexibility in scheduling. I will pencil your due date in on my calendar, and once your baby has arrived we will schedule a date for your session. Newborns photograph best within the first two weeks of birth. Parents and siblings are always encouraged to join in on the pictures!
