WHAT DOES A NEWBORN SESSION LOOK LIKE?
I have a minimal and classic approach to focus on baby and all posing is baby-led. The session will be slow paced as we take our time and allow baby to feed, cry, have diaper changes, or whatever needs to be done. I provide swaddles and blankets. If your session will be at home, I bring the equipment I need to achieve a timeless look. In home sessions generally take place in the master bedroom. I ask that you strip your bed down to simple white sheets.
All of my Mamas have the option to wear one of my dresses. I have a Pinterest board filled with ideas if you would like to provide your own outfit and I provide a style guide for the rest of the family.
I do not use props, I focus on baby’s features and the family connection.
WHAT IS THE “FAMILY BUNDLE?”
The Family Bundle is the perfect way to document your growing family throughout the year. I generally suggest booking a Fall session for your Holiday cards, a Spring session to visibly document the growth and change in your child and to enjoy stunning images to hang on your walls, and to plan an extended family session in the summer when family comes to visit for vacation.
A few other fun suggestions would be an in-home lifestyle session, birthday, vacation, a themed portrait session (ex: Saturday cinnamon roll breakfast tradition), an intimate studio session, a grandparent session to gift, flower field session, a hike up the mountains, etc.
The possibilities are endless. This is a fun way to create memories for your family!
WHAT IF MY BABY IS AWAKE OR CRYING?
Newborn photos of your baby awake are quite beautiful; it allows me to photograph the eyes and emotions for you to enjoy later on. As for crying, babies cry, it’s how they communicate. Don’t worry, we will do what we can to settle the baby with swaddles, milk, gentle sways, and I’ll keep documenting the moments. Some of my clients favorite photographs are in these moments when mom is whispering in baby’s ear or dad is gently kissing baby to a calm.
HOW DO YOU STYLE FAMILIES?
I provide you with a detailed guide accompanied with sample photographs to view. From there, we plan based off your home aesthetics, location, and your preferred taste. I have a Pinterest board filled with ideas. I also own a small collection of maternity and breastfeeding friendly dresses, if you would like to borrow one. I’m currently offering discounts on sessions if you would like to purchase a dress and donate it to my collection. Please contact me beforehand if you’re interested in this option.
I WANT TO PURCHASE HEIRLOOMS BUT YOU DON’T HAVE WHAT I WANT . . .
My collections and heirlooms have been curated based on popular demand. I do offer other custom made albums, photo books, frames, and prints, however, I don’t publicly offer them so the options don’t become overwhelming. If you have something specific in mind, let me know. If you don’t have any specific desires but would like to purchase more than the heirlooms I have offered, please contact me. I’m always happy to customize a collection to fit your preferences.
