Often times people will say the best its yet to come. This couldn’t be more true for this sweet little family. I was asked by the family’s co-workers to purchase a photo session. I always believe photography sessions make the perfect gift and this present was for the parents to be. This little guy’s parent fought very hard for him and didn’t give up along the way. I was truly honored to photograph this sweet little guys first moments. I wish nothing but the best as the true gift is watching him grow through the years.
It was so special to photograph this new baby girl. The reason was I first met this cute couple when we did a fall photo session and she announced she was expecting. No one knew yet she was expecting I was able to photograph the sweet ultrasound with the soon to be big brother. At the time neither of us knew if a baby brother or sister would be joining the family.
I offer many different newborn packages in order to fit everyone’s needs. I offer in my studio newborn plus family sessions, mini newborn sessions (just for the baby) and I also travel to clients homes. I bring all of my newborn supplies with me and we focus on more lifestyle photos!

Baby B is finally here. It is so exciting to first photograph the expectant parents during the maternity session and then finally meet the baby. Baby B was a dream to photograph, he did so well during his first photo shoot. My newborn photo shoots take place in my in home studio. They usually last 2 hours and is a nice mixture of both newborn and family poses.

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.
I am so very excited to announce the addition of the “Fresh 48 Photography Sessions” to my packages. This is something I have been working towards offering but wanted to make sure I was fully qualified and safety certified before I began entering the hospitals. You may ask, what exactly is the Fresh 48?
This type of photography is a special session for the those families who want the first few hours of their Newborn’s life captured without the labor or birth documented. The sessions take place at the hospital or birthing center within the first 24-48 hours of life. This session is also known more as a lifestyle and documentary approach of the the newborn and their immediate family. Please note this is not a traditional Newborn Session and I will not pose the baby or bring any props.
This is what you can expect during the Fresh 48. Once the baby is born and you are settled in your room, I will come to the hospital for your session. This is typically on day 2. Since I use natural light, I come during daylight hours. Between doctors, nurses, and visitors, we don’t have a large window of time for pictures. Sessions typically last about 45-60 minutes. This allows time for individual pictures of baby, pictures with parents, and meeting siblings. This will be my chance to capture your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!
Most recently I also completed my safety certification for Newborn Photography. With this new certification along with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (RN) I can ensure your precious little one will be in great care.
For a limited time, I am offering discounted session prices for my Fresh 48 and will only take limited sessions per month. Please contact me for more information and specific pricing.
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.

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.
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.
One of my favorites backdrops or props with my Newborns is the Simply White backdrop. It is so pure, classy and elegant that puts all the focus on your newborn. My goal when photographing a newborn in this pose is to allow the baby to look the most natural and pure as they can. I’m not trying to do some crazy “yoga” poses with your precious little newborn but rather that him/her decide where and how to lay. Then I place a white sheet around the baby to accent them.
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.
This sweet little angel came into the studio and was so fun and easy to work with from the very beginning. Its often hard in Newborn Photography. I plan my day and hope for the best transitions from pose to pose but its always the baby who will set the tone of the day. Luckily this little lady was nice to me and had no problem falling back to sleep.
What can you expect from a Newborn Session with me? It is very laid back and often times I like to begin on the newborn beanbag and capture those “white” images that many parents have been falling in love with lately. These simple yet beautiful images capture the timeless and beauty of the newborn without flashy colors or props.
Those two things just aren’t my style. I prefer the more the classic look so parents can look back at these photos some day and say “what were we thinking!” I want parents to look back and say what a beautiful baby our child was.
After the simple white photos I usually allow the parents to choose what wraps, furs or baskets they would prefer for their newborn. If the baby is fussy this is a great time to capture mom and baby or baby with the whole family.
