The first moments are the sweetest ones. I specialize in lifestyle newborn sessions, which are done in your home, snuggled up with your sweet new baby and family. It's an intimate look into your first days with this beautiful human you just created and it doesn't get any snugglier or sweeter than this!
I recommend doing newborn photos within the first two weeks of life, while baby is still very sleepy and easier to position. Prior to my arrival, we will extensively go over styling and your ideas for the dreamiest and most classic collection. You'll have the ability to choose different wrap, headband and basket options to suit the aesthetic you're striving to achieve as well as full access to my extensive Client Closet and online styling platform. Read below images for much more info on these dreamy and unique sessions!
My newborn sessions are done in 3 phases. The first is a posed portion using props and wraps and is just the baby solo. This gives you the chance to finalize getting yourself and the rest of your family ready for their time in front of the lens. The second portion is a comfy+cozy vibe, using textured blankets and an unwrapped, dressed baby with natural posing. The third and final portion is a family affair with siblings as well as solo with mama and dad. For this portion, I'll capture you snuggling with your baby as well as sibling shots. Nothing is set in stone however, so if it makes more sense to do phase 3 first, we will roll with it! My newborn sessions typically last 2-3 hours and you'll receive a gallery of proofs within 2 weeks where you can choose your included images or purchase your entire gallery. Once you've let me know your choices. I'll go ahead and finalize those images within 1-2 weeks.
As you can see from my images, my aesthetic is a neutral, warm + cozy, textured vibe that is very much lifestyle. I always make sure that people understand what type of newborns sessions I do before booking so that you know you've found a good fit. Once you've booked, I'll send out an extensive Google Doc where you can see all of my wrap colors, outfits and baskets and let me know if you'd like to choose them yourself or if you'd like for me to take the reins and style it for you. Typically it's a team effort and I'm all about communication leading up to your session so that it's 100% tailored to your desires and aesthetic.
You can choose up to 2 different setups as well as 2 different wraps and headbands for your session.
Finally, before I arrive, you'll receive a detailed Prep Guide for the day of to help you prepare for a super successful day in your home for the couple of hours I'm there. I provide so many helpful tips for a sleepy baby, ideal light, etc. to make it effortless and stress-free!
Don't skip these precious sessions. It's an investment you'll never once regret. Those tiny toes, the sweet rolls and sleepy smiles are gone in the blink of an eye, so make sure you capture them so you can always look back and cherish them.
