"Milestones in Life Captured Authentically"
Newborn Session Experience
Those first few days and weeks of your baby's life are filled with excitement, joy, exhaustion, and concern. I get it! So many emotions are circling around this new chapter of your life. I will take care of everything to make sure your session is relaxed and comfortable for you.
When to have your session
I recommend we hold your session within the first two weeks of your baby's birth. This is when they are the most squishy and pose easily. If you have an older baby that is okay too! I have done newborn sessions up to 1 month old but ultimately we want to document them when they are brand new.
Immediate family is always welcome in your session. We will have a variety of shots that include everyone, just you and your partner with baby, your children and newborn, and of course some of just baby.
We can plan your session in the studio or have me come directly to your home. I provide wraps and outfits for the baby so all you have to do is show up with your little bundle of joy. If you are interested in an outdoor session, I recommend it be during the summer months when we have warm weather.
When to book
Booking your session in advance is ideal so we can be sure to have availability within that two-week marker as I only take a set amount on newborns each month. We will put your due date tentatively on the calendar. Once you have your sweet one, simply contact me to confirm a day and time for your session.
We want everyone to be comfortable with what they are wearing so I recommend sticking to cotton and jersey styles of fabrics that allow easy snuggling and movement. Neutral colors like white, grey, beige, and light earthy tones tend to photograph best. This also ensures baby won't have any color casting on their skin since they will be bundled up in your arms and near your clothing. No need to bring any outfit for your baby unless you would like to. I have everything from wraps to sweet outfits and simple props.
