Let’s talk about newborn portraits! I know a lot of parents feel pretty anxious about being in front of the camera so soon after you bring your baby home – and that’s why my no-stress approach is perfect! You can be yourselves and I’ll ensure you look fantastic! Some new moms also opt to book an awesome stylist I work with, who will come to their homes to do hair and makeup.
Worried about the state of your house? I’ve got your back. I often photograph newborn sessions in one small area of your home – sometimes the bedroom, sometimes the living room – and I have a knack for ensuring you can’t see any other part of the room. If there are diapers in the corner, no sweat! Leave them there. Mid-morning is often an ideal time for your new baby’s feeding schedule and it’s the perfect time for natural light. I always come a bit early and it’s no problem for me to wait while your baby sleeps or feeds, so there’s no rush!
My style is more on the candid / lifestyle side of things. All that means is I’m capturing the as-it-happens moments between you and your new baby without a lot of awkward, stiff-and-formal posing. As you can see in the photos below, I keep things natural and fun. You can change your baby into several outfits and we’ll get a nice amount of variety. All you have to do is hold your baby and enjoy!
For booking your session… I’m pretty flexible, so if you give me a heads up about your due date, we can schedule a tentative session about two weeks after you expect your baby to be born. If baby is a little early… or a little late… no worries! We’ll confirm the session day once we know for sure your newborn is here!
