In full bloom with this Newborn Photography Session | Cleveland, Ohio | Mentor, Ohio

Its always a pleasure meeting and talking with a family expecting a new little one on the way. This family not only trusted me with their newborn session but also their Fresh 48 session. The best part is non of us new if the family was going to have a baby boy or girl? They currently have a baby boy at home and we all were anticipating the news of the baby’s arrival. I will say I was a little excited to hear girl since for some reason 2018 and early 2019 was a year of newborn boys. I met the family in their hospital room for their fresh 48 session. Baby girl looked perfect and mom, dad and brother were thrilled for her to be here. The fresh 48 take place within 48 hours after delivery. I usually like to come in about day 2 of their stay. Once I wrapped up the fresh 48 session I was looking forward to them returning for their newborn sessions.

This session took place in my small studio. The newborn session entails more of the traditional poses of baby and adding in mom, dad and brother as well. I am so thrilled for the C. Family and their new family. I wish nothing but the best and creating sweet memories as they watch their children grow through the years.

The benefits of Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Cleveland, Ohio | Lake County, Ohio

Those tiny toes, the fluttering eyelashes, the way they grasp their parents’ fingers. These are the moments that parents want to record and keep forever.  There really is two different types of Newborn Photography today. There is the traditional Newborn Photography which is the type of photos you see with babies in baskets, bowls and backdrops. I currently offer this type of photography and is done at all of my newborn sessions. I also have a variety of “high-end” wraps, headbands and accessories to choose from while customizing your session.

The second type of Newborn photography is known as Lifestyle photography. So what exactly is this? This is more like photojournalism in that it is designed to tell a story, and document the baby with their new surroundings. These tend to be shots that are more real and less staged, designed to capture the essence of having a newborn. This is truly my favorite since it allows poses to be natural, unposed and artistic all at the same time. The true benefit of Lifestyle photography is the session takes place in the comforts of your OWN home! How great is that! Especially after coming home from the hospital, who really wants to leave to go get pictures taken. I am happy to bring everything to you! At my Lifestyle sessions, I bring all of my props, swaddles and accessories with me. I do a combination of traditional newborn poses so you don’t miss out on those plus lifestyle photography throughout your home. No worries if you have high energy toddlers at home too. I will capture those true smiles and laughs all while incorporating the newest member of your family:)

I currently blend in a 3rd option with all of my newborn sessions. I have become known as the “unposed” Newborn photography style. This typically is a white sheet with a white wrap flowing around the baby. I love this new unique style that looks as it should. Unposed and 100% natural at the same time. Please look below for examples of my most recent lifestyle session that took place.

Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Cuyahoga County, Ohio | Cleveland, Ohio

It was a couple weeks before Christmas when I heard the news that one of my January Newborn clients was close to delivering. I was surprised and excited to hear the news. This beautiful family was scheduled in mid January for a lifestyle session in their home and their little boy couldn’t wait to get here.

This sweet little guy was born 3 weeks early and was such a perfect little baby. He was small little guy but such a pleasure to photograph. He slept most of the time while doing some of the family posing and we quickly moved to the newborn shots. I had so much fun visiting this family in their home. I were able to capture many fun lifestyle photos for them as well. Traveling to clients home for the Newborn/Lifestyle photos have become a favorite of mine. It really is a special memory for the family the moments captured in their home. They are really some timeless keepsakes to treasure.

If you are interested in a Newborn in home lifestyle session please contact me today! I would love to chat with you and discuss many options.

xoxo

An new precious boy now makes a family of 3

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;)

Beautiful in home Lifestyle Newborn Session

A beautiful Newborn in home Lifestyle Session took place in Chardon, Ohio. Often times I get asked what exactly is a lifestyle session? Lifestyle photography is my favorite type of photos because its more about the candid unique connection captured between families. That is what a photo session should be. Natural, not rushed focusing on the connection.

At-home lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for this new life. I'll capture special moments with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together.  It was honor to photograph the M. Family in their home. If you are interested in booking a lifestyle session, it is best to book prior to delivery.

Simply Beautiful Newborn Session

I had the pleasure of this cute little guy to join me in my home studio today. He was so fun to photograph and the perfect little model. He also proved to be one of my best newborns thus far for sleeping for me;) Most people believe babies just sleep all the time and newborn photography should be easy peasy...Haha! I believe the opposite is true they can be challenge sometimes. But its the challenge and the rewards of getting that perfect tender shot that make everything worth while. That and I came up with a few tricks to help lull the babies back to sleep.

I am greatly enjoying this new adventure of Newborn Photography and even those at first I was hesitant and resistant it is proving to be my favorite..

Beautiful in home session with a precious little lady

There is something so special about those first few months when your newborn is brought home. Everything is so very fresh, new, exciting and precious all wrapped up together. Its these little moments you wish you could stop time and soak it all in. It all happens so fast from the moment you bring them home you blink and they are riding their bike. This is why hitting the pause button with photography is so important for any new family. Doing the in home lifestyle photography sessions have become a new favorite of mine. These are not posed, unpractical and stiff images. More like natural, candid and breath taking is a better way to describe lifestyle photography. I had so much fun with the H family and their new baby girl. We were able to capture so many beautiful shots throughout the home while working on the baby's timetable. If you are considering newborn photography it is best to book prior to delivery. Please contact me for more information on my newborn packages.

A Beautiful Newborn and Lifestyle in home Session.


You may have heard the term "Lifestyle Family Session", but never fully understood what that meant or what it entails. I was excited to announce my Newborn sessions now have the option of adding on the Lifestyle Session at a clients home. So what is a "Lifestyle Session"? The at-home lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for this new life. During these sessions my goal is to capture the special moments with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together. The siblings are involved as well with the session. The benefits of having the session in your home is to allow the siblings to run and play while the "newborn posed" pictures are taking place. These sessions are at a much more relaxed-casual pace and often times the youngest member of the family (aka, the newborn) will dictate how the session runs.  The session is usually 2-3 hours in length depending on how sleepy the baby is in order to achieve the newborn poses. I usually like to start the session with the Newborn. It is best to keep the baby awake 2-3 hours and fed prior to my arrival. Once I arrive I prefer to begin with the newborn photos. These photos usually consist of props and the use of my beanbag. If the baby is not cooperating, no worries, we may move to the nursery with some candid mom and baby photos. Its a very laid back session, and we all go with the flow.  If the baby is still not quite ready for their individual pictures this is a great time to photograph the baby with mom, dad and incorporate the siblings. After those pictures are complete, I will go back to the newborn photos. My newborn photos are a mixture of swaddling in a few "posed" positions but often times they may appear in a more relaxed newborn position. My goal isn't to turn your beautiful newborn into a "frog" pose but rather photograph all the unique and beautiful qualities the newborn has in a more natural way. This would include the baby's feet, eye lashes, and flaking skin. After all, time waits for no one, and we have a very small window of time to capture these beautiful newborn characteristics. If you are interested in my "Simply Beautiful Newborn" Sessions, please contact me for pricing and booking. It is best to book the newborn sessions prior to delivery. The best time period to photograph newborns is day 2-12 of life. Anytime before 2 weeks of life is best and helps to achieve the sleepy and newborn qualities.
