Hello, Sweet Baby
Below you will find details on In-Hom Newborn Sessions, such as what the session looks like, when to book, and more.
When to Book Your Session?
Expecting parents usually book their newborn session about 2-3 months before baby’s due date. This gives me time to make room on my production calendar, as well as plan a lovely custom session for your little love. It also allows time for maternity images (if desired).
How Do I Book A Session?
Booking is easy. Just fill out the form with as much info as you can via the Contact page. I generally respond to emails on Mon, Wed, and Sun.
What Does An In-Home Newborn Session Look Like?
My style is very natural when photographing or creating little films for my teeniest clients.
I use natural materials in soft and neutral colors to allow your baby’s authentic self to shine through. I don’t clutter my images with bulky props. Rather, I choose to focus on all the sweet details that makes your baby unique and lovely.
I carefully choose bows, wraps, colors, bonnets, and more from some amazing vendors, including Bluestone Sky, Red Owl Props, and Lennon & Co. They are just a few of my favorite artisans.
The first part of your baby’s session involves natural newborn portraits, which generally takes about 1.5 hours. Then we break for a feeding and move into parent/sibling images, including lifestyle and natural portraits.
What About Safety?
Many folks out there advertising as a baby photographer are not trained to handle babies.
I’m focused on safety and comfort for your baby during the whole session. He or She will never be constrained into positions that put them at ANY harm. Also, I bring along heating pads, sound machines, and other goodies to keep your little one cozy and happy during our session.
Is There a Mix of Lifestyle and Posed Images?
I offer minimally-posed images for newborn babies alongside my lifestyle sessions, choosing to focus on their lovely details (eye lashes, toes, hands) as well as some sweet images with organic wraps and wispy bonnets/bows from my personal collection. But I do not use “props” that are bulky or take away from the baby in any way. I want your baby to love these images forever, too. And the fad of putting babies in baskets will fade over time.
