newborn photography in the comfort of your home

Capture all those tiny details of a brand new babe without ever having to leave your home!

those newborn days pass by in a blur

Home birth, hospital or birth center I think we can all agree those early days pass by in a blur! You’re healing from birth, getting to know a new tiny human who relies on you for everything and figuring out the changing roles in your family. One thing you won’t have to think about is remembering to grab the photos of their tiny toes, little button nose, long fingers and every combination of baby snuggles imaginable- you have me for that! (;

We work together from the very beginning to make sure once baby is born we’ve eliminated as much brain power required for your session as possible- all you need to do is be in the moment, kiss that tiny nose, snuggle in with your family and gaze upon that sweet little person you made- easy right?

Photography is the closest we’ve come to time travel. It allows us to relive our memories in every beautiful detail. Imagine yourself 7-10 years from now sitting in your living room, flipping through your family’s photo album, smiling and getting teary eyed while reminiscing on all the beautiful memories made with your kids- the excitement waiting on their arrival, those snugly newborn days, their pudgy little hands, never ending energy and unbounding curiosity about the world. 
Those memories are priceless.

what do you mean “lifestyle Newborn Session”?

A lifestyle approach to newborns means we’re getting those real moments that capture the love in your family and life as it looks right now! All the parts of those early days you’ll want captured- whether it’s snuggled up in the nursery, an older sibling sharing their favorite book with new baby or a cuddle puddle in the living room. We’re following baby’s lead for posing and will take lots of breaks as needed for diapers changes, spit takes, feedings and snuggles all in the comfort of your space with your things you’ve been carefully curating for the last 9 months nearby.

all the details you never want to forget

The unfortunate part about raising littles is every day they wake up a little bigger! Before we know it the snuggly newborn stage is over, the Velcro impersonation stage is traded for chasing after them on that next big adventure, “Mama hold me” is traded for “I hold your hand” and every step is so exciting and new while simultaneously being a little sad- don’t let this chapter close without snagging a piece to hold onto forever! Those sweet little “imperfect” moments are the ones we usually want to remember most- little laughs, snuggles and playful moments.

Don’t worry Mama we won’t miss a moment.

How it works

Fill out the quick contact form on the contact page. Include your preferences in terms of session type and style, location, etc. I’ll be in touch within 24 hours with information based on what you shared so your experience is tailored to exactly what you need! We choose a date, location and time you will get a personal booking link to pay your retainer and sign your contract!

Woo! You’re officially be on my calendar!

We work together via phone or email (whichever fits your life better!) to fill out a questionnaire to help me get to know your family- what your littles like and dislike, who will need some extra help coming out of their shell, who is going to be the one leading the dance party, which room has the best light and even which wall you want to hang your beautiful artwork on!

Using all that info I create your session wardrobe and all that’s left for you to do is do your best to have well rested littles with full bellies and we’ll laugh, play, snuggle and even dance our way to your favorite photos!

At the beginning of your session you’ll give me a quick tour of the space we’ll be in, I’ll make any minor adjustments to help us have the best light (don’t worry my Mama taught me to put things back the way I found them 😉), hand over your wardrobe that we compiled and then I’ll probably end up plopped down with the kiddos reading a story or offer to hold the baby so you can use both hands to finish getting ready, eat or pee solo for the first time in recent memory. Not until your child(ren) have been comfortably charmed by my many storybook voices and mismatched sock silliness will I pick up my camera and formally ‘start’ our session. We’ll use prompts and games to enhance the natural rhythm of your family and make you feel like you’re hanging out with a friend who thinks you’re the best thing since sliced bread, ’cause you are.

You’ll get your images in an online viewing gallery delivered 3 weeks after our session.

This is where you’ll review your finished images, heart your favorites, decide which ones you just have to have whether it’s prints, digitals or albums and choose the package that makes that happen!

10 things you need to know about breastfeeding

It’s safe to say that by now you’ve noticed everyone has some sort of advice or snippet of wisdom to share with new moms. From the moment you announced your pregnancy, your friends and loved ones have been sharing advice and if your bump is showing you’ve probably got strangers in grocery stores who just can’t wait to share.

But what about the things that no one tells you?

You know the nitty-gritty stuff that you really need to know to not just survive motherhood but thrive
