As a mom I know how important these photos are. Those newborn days can be hard, but the sweet little sleeping baby (or awake if they want to cooperate!) images will remind you of just how fleeting this time is.
Since I do not currently have a studio space, this means I come to your home to photograph your little bundle. It's also a wonderful way to capture you & your sweet family in the baby's nursery and in their first home! I provide all props, wraps, headbands and extras needed for photos, but you can always incorporate nursery elements, things with their names and momentos.
Maternity and newborn photos can be bundled or you can just book a newborn session. Maternity photos are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks. Newborn sessions are best in the first 14 days after birth, but I am able to adjust and still capture if baby is older too!
I book a select number of newborns due each month. So it is never to early to get in the books as these spots fill fast.
AN IN-HOME EXPERIENCE
Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking us to document their growing families and now we just can't get enough!
We love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that the car of their floor is covered in cereal, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and mom and dad are in a permanent state of exhaustion, their love and their story are beautiful.
So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come.
These moments are fleeting and you will never regret newborn photos.
It is definitely an emotional roller coaster becoming a mom. From all the changes pregnancy brings the crazy things it does to your body. But embrace it! You will someday miss the moments when they were all safe and snug within you! As someone who had difficult pregnancies I do cherish those maternity photos, and after being on the fence about maternity photos for the 2nd pregnancy I'm so glad I decided to do the photos. When I think of all those moms who are just longing to be pregnant I really feel blessed to be able to have had the struggles I had, and to have those memories of being pregnant.
Following babies birth, I know it's an adjustment to getting ready and feeling good given all your body went through with labor. I think my favorite portion of newborn photos is capturing families and momma's with their babies! You won't regret the snuggling, kisses and photos together even when the days are tough!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
So do your hair, makeup, and get dressed up - and you can even treat yourself and have your hair and makeup done by someone else! Take the time to remember this journey that changes you and your body.
It's not easy growing a human!
No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.
what do we do if it rains?
The sooner the better! Our weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall, so the sooner you reach out to us, the more likely you are to get your desired date!
To reserve your date, we'll need a contract as well as a deposit. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let us know!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
We put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family (even Fido!)
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones.
WE'RE AWKWARD AND MY KIDS DON'T SIT STILL.
Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.
