What you can expect from my Newborn Photography Session

A newborn photography session with me is not only about your new baby, it is about the newest member of your family. That's why I want the whole family involved-- parents, siblings, and even pets.

A newborn photo session is about the story of a growing family. I give my clients pictures that they will look back on and remember the moment.

My newborn photography sessions are in your baby's first two months of life. I do not try to pose newborns in unnatural ways, so they do not need to be in that first 10 days of sleepiness. In fact I like it when newborns are awake during our session so we get to see those eyes and maybe a peek into their personality. Waiting a few weeks for your session also allows the rest of the family to be a little more settled in and relaxed--especially siblings.

My newborn photography sessions last up to three hours. This gives us plenty of time to relax and have fun. We can take feeding breaks (or I can shoot that, too, if you want).

Newborn photography sessions are in your home. You don't have to get the family dressed and out the door, and you have everything you might need. Plus I like to include your home in some of the shots. It is all part of your family's personality and story.

I am a photo-journalist and a newborn lifestyle photographer. To me lifestyle photography means that I create the right settings to capture beautiful, authentic pictures of your family. It's somewhere between photo-journalism and portraiture.

Of course I take pictures of your newborn baby alone, including all of the unbelievably cute details like fingers and toes. I bring a few tasteful props like wraps, hats and headbands, and prefer to include any items that you have like blankets or stuffed animals to make personal pictures. I give my clients simple and authentic newborn portraits.

And don't get me wrong--I think

babies in buckets are cute, too. If my client is interested in it, I am game (and will bring the bucket or basket!) But I do not pose or position baby in any unnatural ways (think hands holding up the head), and that's not the only shots I will get.

Within two weeks of our session you will have an on-line gallery great for sharing, and a USB with more than 30 edited images of your family and new baby.
