SPECIAL COVID-19 NOTICE

With the current COVID-19 policies and restrictions that we all must adhere to and with the utmost interest of keeping us all safe, especially your newborn baby, we are not currently offering our in-home newborn sessions. We hope to resume these very special sessions shortly, as soon as we are all vaccinated and it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, what we can do is outdoor socially distanced family sessions with your baby. It's not the same, I know, but we can still capture sweet moments with your and your baby that you will cherish, perhaps all the more so because of this pivotal time we're living in.

If you prefer traditional newborn portraiture, I am happy to recommend a Newborn Photography Studio that is certified COVID-19 Compliant upon request.

 

I've already received my first vaccination and will be fully vaccinated as of May 1, 2021 and plan to resume my usual close contact sessions with vaccinated clients.

I appreciate your understanding and I am looking forward to opening up booking newborn sessions in the near future.

NEWBORN SESSIONS

Welcoming your newborn into the world is probably the single most important time in the life of you and your family. It's an emotional time that generates a lot of excitement. The days and weeks following a birth can be very hazy and hard to remember. This is why Newborn Photography Sessions are so important and have become so popular.

Browse the Newborn gallery below or skip ahead for more details.

 

NEWBORN SESSIONS

Newborn babies are usually photographed anywhere from 7-14 days. This is the optimal time to get those dreamy, sleepy, curly baby photographs that are so sought after. This session consists of styled poses often using wraps, blankets, and props such as baskets and posing bowls.

 

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions aren't as constrained by this time frame and are a bit more casual approach. There may be some gently guided posing but the intention is to capture more natural images of your baby with you and your family in your home. These sessions can be done up to 6 weeks old and usually last 2 hours.

Newborn Sessions do take longer than Family and other sessions. This extra time is necessary to allow for frequent feeding, posing, cleaning up (yup, stuff happens), or getting the baby to sleep. Basically, whatever baby needs. We're on baby's time for this session and we respect that.
