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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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..
