I recently photographed this super cute family in Kirkwood a couple of weeks after their baby boy arrived. It's always so much fun to drop into a family's life just after their baby has arrived. It is such a powerful time of transition and vulnerability, as they navigate this new way of being in the world. I know it can be an emotional time, and by offering laid back photography at home, I hope to not add to their stress.
I offer authentic newborn photography in the comfort of your home. You don't even need to put shoes on. I only use natural lighting to create emotive and heartfelt photos that you will cherish. You do not need to worry about a messy house--we can shift clutter if needed, and focus on the snuggles and the connections between you and your newborn.
The newborn period is a time that goes by in a blur, and I can preserve the sweet memory of it for you. I recommend booking your newborn session during pregnancy, and then we will schedule it once your baby arrives. That way we can plan for our session a little before you have a new baby to care for! I ask clients to send me some photos of their home, which helps me to prepare, and I also send clients some tips that I have learned over the years on how they might prepare their family and home for our session.
I like to schedule newborn sessions for when your baby is between 1 and 3 weeks old. This gives time for everyone to settle in, and for your baby to 'wake up' a little bit. Newborn sessions last up to two hours, with plenty of time for snack breaks, nursing breaks, and lots of snuggles.
