newborn lifestyle sessions

for all the big and little moments in your next chapter

 Newborn lifestyle sessions are some of my favorite sessions to capture. A new addition to your family is always exciting and documenting the first moments as a family is what I always focus on during my newborn lifestyle sessions. Though your newborn is the star of the show (and I plan on longer sessions in order to give him or her plenty of time to eat, be rocked, etc), I love capturing the whole family together, as well as big brother or sister with their new sibling. Newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your home, with minimal props and outfits, with the goal if capturing your family in a low-key, genuine way.

What you can expect

A go-with-the-flow attitude grabbing both posed and unposed moments of both the newborn and family members. I plan up to two hours of time to ensure we have time to stop for feedings, comforting, and to ultimately make the session as laid back as possible. I bring along a selection of wraps and simple props for individual shots of baby but you are welcome to use special outfits, blankets, etc.

      Frequently asked questions

      What is the booking process?

      I only take on a limited number of newborns each month to ensure I can fit everyone in. Contact me with your due date below and I’ll get back to you. To officially secure the session, I’ll send over a contract and invoice for the booking retainer. The signed contract and a $150 non-refundable retainer are required to secure your session. Everything is done online to make it easy peasy for you (and me!).

      How do we schedule?

      I do not select a date for newborn sessions until after birth unless you are having a scheduled c-section. I find babies come early or late and it’s best to wait until you come home from the hospital to pencil in the official date on the calendar. In general, I do newborn sessions on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I only take on a limited number of sessions and ensure due dates aren’t close together to make sure I can fit everyone in.

      What's the best time for a newborn session?

      I find newborns are best to photograph in the first 3 weeks of life. For premies, you can photograph up to 6-8 weeks after birth. I aim to schedule within these timelines for best results.

      Do i need special props/wraps?

      You don’t need anything special for your session – I bring wraps and simple props to use. If you do have something you’d like to use, that’s totally fine!

      What should we wear?

      After you book, I’ll send over my helpful hints and tips, but to sum it up, comfortable clothes you can move in and neutral colors always work well!

      How do I receive my photos and when?

      All of my images are delivered via an online gallery so you can view and download them wherever you are! You’ll also be able to order professional prints, albums, and books through your gallery.

      All session are delivered within a four-week timeframe unless otherwise specified by me!
