How Newborn Sessions Work

Congratulations!! Having a baby is an amazing time in your life and I'm so happy for you! Whether this is your first miracle baby or your sixth, I want to help make this an incredible time for you and capture every precious moment! Once you decide on the packages you'd like to purchase, we'll get your date and time officially reserved by signing a contract and paying a 50% nonrefundable booking retainer. Then the date is all yours! With newborns, it's usually best to have their session sometime between 5-14 days old when they're still sleepy all the time. I know that sometimes little ones want to come on their own schedule, and we can definitely work around that! But because the baby's schedule is so often different than what we expect, I don't usually book newborn session until about 1-2 months before your due date/delivery date. 


The session will take place in your home (or mine if you prefer) and we'll focus on capturing lifestyle photos with minimal posing. So if you're looking for extremely posed, studio type photos I have some recommendations for other amazing photographers. But if you're interested in lifestyle, candid photos then I'm your girl! Family members are more than welcome (and actually very much encouraged) be a part of the session!

Schedule Your Own!

Interested in your own maternity and newborn sessions? Let me know here! Don't stress, this isn't a commitment to a session, just a chance for you to get more info!
