Keep it simple

There are many different ways to capture your newborn adventure. My approach is to capture what I like to call the "Newborn Bubble".

It's quiet, but loud. Anxious, but peaceful.

Organized Chaos.

I want to capture the true moments of this new adventure in the place where it all began. This is your babies first home, and the place where you became a parent for the first, second or eighth time.

This Time is special.

This Space is special.

And it only happens once.


Open all curtains, and shut off any artificial lights (yes ALL! so important for keeping the white balance).

Don't stress about the mess. Don't feel pressured to get gussied up. I am capturing this time, this space, as is. These photos are for YOU so if you want to straighten up, make the bed, throw some lipstick on, by all means please do. But this is not a requirement by any means!

Have any outfits or sentimental items you'd like to include handy.

Try to keep the family outfits simple and light. Avoid patterns and dark colors. Avoid Black.

We're capturing a little slice of life, don't overthink it too much. It'll all work out!

I love making the home as present in these photos as possible, and the more we use the space the better. The personality of the home is what makes each newborn session unique and special. These are unposed. I will occasionally make adjustments, but nothing that requires a deeply sleeping baby. I love to get some individual portraits of the baby on a safe surface (such a bed, couch, floor with a cool rug), but if the baby is not comfy laying on their own we capture baby in your arms (swoon)- the more connection between your family members, the better. Lifestyle Family Portraits are done throughout the home, chasing the light. This is a stress free session! We take breaks, we change it up, we find what works.
