Newborns

 
 

Newborns and Beyond!

I specialize in in- home documentary and lifestyle photography sessions to capture the earliest moments of your child's life.

I am completely smitten by squishy babies. I worked for years as a nanny and have been fortunate enough to watch my own niece and nephews grow from bump to school aged children and participated in caring for and loving them along the way. There is just something so special about a new baby. The birth of a child is such a defining moment in your life. And they are only little for so long. Those first few months at home are such an intimate and beautiful time.

Let’s work together to capture it forever.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. During these sessions, we will capture your family in a way that you can look back on and remember how you really were.  Siblings do great in this situation as well, allowing us to capture authentic moments.  Minimal posing, with gentle and relaxed direction allows for natural connection and interaction to occur. All family members are included.

Smiles all around

I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I travel to you! This allows baby and parents to remain as comfortable as possible while preparing for and during the session.

Some fluff included

I bring along a collection of modern muslin swaddle blankets, fluffy blankets and rugs that serve as backdrops and baskets to capture your precious newborn in a few soft, sweet solo portraits.

Newborn Sessions should take place within the first month of baby's arrival. In home sessions can be scheduled as 45, 60 or 90 minute sessions. Sessions include time for solo portraits of baby as well as group photos to include parents and family in the session. I aim to use strictly natural window light in my sessions as it produces the best light quality. Studio lighting can be provided when necessary. 

Additional sessions

 

Fresh 48 Sessions take place in the hospital within 48 hours of baby's arrival. These sessions capture those fleeting first moments out in the world and that most precious first day. Fresh 48 sessions are simple and natural, just my camera and I without props or backdrops. These sessions can be scheduled as short 20-40 minute sessions or longer if you wish to capture first meetings with other family members. 

Baby Portrait Sessions can take place anywhere from 6 - 12 months. These portrait sessions are great for capturing your little's developing personality. Baby will need to be able to sit up and hold them selves up for at least a bit at a time. These sessions can be held in home or in an outdoor, natural setting.
