My newborn sessions are designed to capture your baby's first days of life in a unique and creative way. I know the importance of preserving these moments and nothing does that more beautifully than newborn photography. I will provide you with a fun + unforgettable experience while creating timeless portraits that capture you and the life you created.
I capture a handful of posed images and several candids that document the relationships between the people in your family as well as the love you have for that new bundle.
You may not feel like you look your best, but I always encourage mom to step in and be included in these sessions. This time in your life is so special and you cannot get it back. I have plenty of dresses that flatter that post-baby bump and I promise to pose you to look your best in the most beautiful light.
My style is very simple, clean, and timeless. I take a minimalistic approach and do not use many props. I like to keep the emphasis on you and your baby.
I keep my color palette very neutral by using soft colors such as white, creams, grays, and pastels. To be honest, my kids think I'm boring, but gosh, these will look beautiful on your walls for years to come + never outdated.
I recommend capturing newborn portraits when your baby is under two weeks of age. This is the best time because your baby is very sleepy and flexible which is good for those curled-up poses. I work with newborns up to 6 weeks of age, but keep in mind that we may not be able to get those sleepy, curled poses and they tend to be a little more alert.
I use props and materials that are gentle on your baby's skin and everything is washed after each session with detergents free of chemicals.
I have flattering clothing for mom and older siblings so you don't have to stress about doing all the shopping!
YOUR NEWBORN SESSION
Newborn sessions last 2-2 1/2 hours. They can be shorter or longer depending on baby. I keep newborn portraits simple. Your baby's safety is the most important thing to me.
Professional photo retouching is included in your session. I focus on keeping your images natural. Flaky baby skin is a part of being a newborn. To help minimize it in your images, I keep Aquaphor and baby lotion on hand. If you would like all flaky skin removed, please let me know.
DISPLAYING YOUR ART
You spend time and money to have your portraits taken and they deserve to be shared with friends and family.
I offer high quality prints, albums, and canvas wraps.
