newborn session experience

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

My newborn sessions include naturally posed newborn pictures as well as pictures with family and pets.  Sessions are typically scheduled when your baby is between one and three weeks old and can take place either at your home or at my studio, located in the Back Bay on the corner of Fairfield and Newbury Streets.

In home sessions offer the convenience of me coming to you and the opportunity to incorporate areas of your home, nursery and other personal details into the session. For in home sessions, I bring all of the equipment and accessories needed to pose and photograph your new baby to your home, including blankets and wraps.

My studio is an all white natural light space with neutral furnishings and a large bay window for family pictures as well as blankets for posing baby.  My studio sessions include the same natural baby and parent posing as my in home sessions and are perfect if you love the light airy look but don't have that type of space or light in your home.

Prior to your session we will go over who will be included in the session, your goals for the session and the type of images you prefer (posed, candid/lifestyle or a combination of both). I will customize your session based on your preferences as well as make suggestions for outfits and how to prepare baby.

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 so we always work around what the baby needs. At this point I will also show you some product samples and talk about options for displaying your photos.

Within two weeks, I will send you a link to view the images from your session in an online password protected gallery and at that point you will make your final picture and product selections.

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.
