I am happy to announce I am a Safety Accredited Professional Newborn Photographer. What does this exactly mean? I took the time and extra course work, study and exams to complete over the last 6 months to ensure I am fully aware of the safety and qualifications needed to be a newborn photographer. This classification was designed to truly separate the Professionals from the “momtogophers” in the area. This certification along with my Bachelor’s in Science in Nursing ensures your precious little one is in the best hands while having Newborn Photography.
I am excited to announce I am now offering the “itty bitty Newborn Mini Photography Sessions”. These session are for the Newborn only that take place at my home studio. It is a 1 hour session that includes 1 blanket and 1 prop set up with 2-4 different poses. With the mini you also receive 10 high resolution digital images with copyright and the option to purchase more. Because these are simply “mini sessions” and 1 hour in length the baby may be either awake or asleep for the pictures. I try my hardest to achieve those sleepy newborn poses but will continue even if the baby is awake. Honestly, they all turn out super adorable whether they are asleep or awake. I have even learned through the years to capture the baby blinking which looks like they are peacefully sleeping.
Contact me today for my full package for Newborn Photography! I offer a package for everyone to fit their needs.
You may have heard of Lifestyle photography and wondered what does that exactly mean? Lifestyle is essentially the candid moments created in an artistic manner. I am happy to announce I offer 2 different types of Newborn Photography Sessions. The first is a 1 -1 1/2 hour session in my home studio. At the studio I provide multiple headbands, wraps and props available to photograph the baby. Next we can take photos with mom, dad and siblings if needed with the options of backdrops and a beautiful white couch. The client also receives all the digital images taken from the session. On average around 40-50 images with copyright release.
The second option is my Newborn plus lifestyle session in the comforts of your own home. The benefit of this is I bring everything to you! I typically take all of the newborn photos with my wonderful props and wraps but then focus on unique candid photos throughout your home.
Lifestyle photography is the goal of capturing real-life events in more of an artistic manner. This could be the tickling of baby toes while up in the nursery. The mom sweetly rocking the baby in her rocking chair. These artistic photos not only capture more of the everyday but also help create a story. It is essentially telling the story of you and your new family days after leaving the hospital.
Please contact me for more specific pricing on my newborn sessions.
This little Newborn was a fun newborn session. I have known the family for years and was happy to hear the new when they were expecting baby #4! This cute little girl joins big brother, big sister and big sister at home. She was welcomed with many arms and has been a blessing to the family. I wish nothing but the best as we watch this little girl grow through the years:)
It is best to book your Newborn Session a few months prior to delivery. The best time period to photography is anywhere from day 5-day 12 of life.
Its amazing how much newborn photography has really been invited and become and new icon in the world of photography. My oldest was born in 2006 so even just 12 years ago Newborn Photography and the classic newborn poses really didn't exist much. There were a few places that would photograph but nothing like today. I look back at my sons pictures and wish I knew then what I know now about newborn photography. Or even motherhood I'm sure that statement could be applied for:)
I am so grateful for all of the new parents that have turned to me and allowed me to photography their precious little ones. This is such an important and exciting time in a families life. They are technically only a newborn for about 1 month! The best time I recommend for parents to have the newborn pictures taken is Day 4- Day 12 of life.
I greatly enjoyed my time with the J. Family who recently became a family of 3. This sweet little guy had to be one of my most laid back babies that came to visit me at my home-studio. The benefits of my Newborn Mini Sessions is the convenience of it only lasting for 1 hour. I understand and get it not everyone is up to the 2 hour family newborn session but definitely want to capture those newborn moments. My Newborn Mini Sessions are 1 hour and take place at my small in home studio. At these sessions we focus on the newborn with my simply beautiful poses and a few prop poses depending on the the what the client would prefer. My style is more relaxed and less fussy. I find more beautiful in the baby on bright white sheets and simple swaddles covering them. However if you were hoping for your little one to look like a turtle with a shell and hat as well, I would be more than happy to complete that look for you;)
