newborn session details

I prefer simplicity, neutral colors and natural poses that make baby the focus of the session rather than generic props and accessories.

Newborn sessions are scheduled in the comfort of your home, typically when your baby is between one and three weeks old. Sessions include naturally posed newborn pictures as well as documentary style pictures of baby in your home with parents, siblings and pets if desired.

I bring a newborn posing pillow, neutral blankets and wraps to comfortably position baby in various sleeping and wrapped poses as well as capture details like eyelashes and toes. Every baby is unique, so while I do some basic posing to ensure baby is comfortable and being photographed from a flattering angle I am looking to capture your baby’s unique preferences and personality as they look around, sleep, stretch and yawn.

The focus of my family and sibling pictures is similar.  I look for moments of natural connection and set up situations such as snuggling together on the bed that allow natural connection and interaction to occur.  I may fix hair, suggest a kiss or fine tune a pose to make it more flattering but the focus is authentically capturing baby's first days at home.

Newborn sessions typically take between one and two hours, although the flow of the session is relaxed and there is no set time limit. Every baby is different, with feeding and awake times often changing on a daily basis at this age so we always work around what the baby needs.

I schedule newborn sessions for weekday mornings with session dates booking about a month in advance, so it is best to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant.  Once booked, I will tentatively schedule you for two weeks following your due date and ask that you contact me when your baby arrives to finalize a date and time for your session.

If you happen to have found me after your baby has arrived, please contact me and I will do my best to fit you in if I have availability.
