My Philosophy + What To Expect
If you are looking for in-studio posed newborn photos then I am going to stop you right there! I strictly photograph newborns in a very natural setting - their own home. I do not do the posed swaddle looks with the different backdrops. That is a damn art and not one that I do! If you are looking for candid moments with your newborn then keep on scrolling!
Photographing newborns in their home has become one of my favourite things to do. Those first couple weeks of your child’s life are so important and something you will never forget. These sessions used to scare the hell out of me when I first became a photographer. I am a couple years into it now and I adore these sessions. There is nothing like going into someone’s home and getting to document their brand new baby. Whether it is your first, second, third or 12th baby these are important moments to document.
Typically, newborn sessions are best done when baby is 6-16 days old, but can most definitely be done later than that. All sessions are done in the comfort of your home. I will send out a questionnaire prior to your baby’s arrival just to get a sense of what kind of images are most important to you. I will also touch base with you around your home and what kind of natural lighting you have. The more natural light the better!
\ I do not like to put a time limit on these sessions. Nothing is more stressful for parents of a brand new baby to be worried about a ticking clock. We will go off of your baby and/or toddler(s) for this one! Feel free to take all the breaks you need to keep that little one (of their big sibling) content. Now, that being said I don’t plan to stay at your house for hours and hours on end. Typically I find that 1.5 hours (even with a fussy baby) is all the time we need!
