A new baby joining your family is a special event, whether it’s your first, second or fourth child.
A Fresh 48 Session (my favorite!) is a lifestyle session where I photograph your baby and family at the hospital, within 48 hours of birth. During my visit to the hospital, I will photograph the special moment with you and your new baby, and the family coming together (siblings’ first meeting). Read more about Fresh 48 Sessions here.
Newborn Sessions are ideally taken within the first 10 days of life. After 10 days would be fine too, but keep in mind that they will likely be sleeping less, and therefore a little bit harder to photograph. A Newborn Session could take hours; we follow the baby – their needs take priority. If baby needs to eat or be changed, we will stop to take care of the baby.
My newborn sessions are taken on location at your home and are mostly lifestyle, unposed and unprompted — in the moment. Even if you do not plan to join in, I could include just your arms holding the baby, or just your hands holding the baby’s hand. I will document your baby in their new nursery, being embraced by parents and siblings, and zoom in on the details of their little hands and tiny toes.
Crying baby? No problem. I want those too. I will document your baby’s first moments with the family in your home — the session will be filled with real and raw emotions.
