All You Need is Love… and just a little bit more sleep.
As a mother of two, I can whole-heartedly tell you that this is true. As you either approach your delivery, or have just completed it, you will be barraged with advice and opinions from everyone, every where you go. It’s overwhelming. When you come to me (or me to you), I will do my best to remind you that whatever you are doing, you are doing it well… and that in these challenging early days, you just need to love them, and keep them safe, everything else will fall in line.
Traditionally, newborn babies are best photographed within the first 2 weeks of their life, if you are looking for mostly curled up, sleepy newborn photographs. However, my style also draws from lifestyle inspiration, and so if your newborn is just a little bit older, and awake, that is just fine with me! I mix up newborn sessions with parental and sibling interaction, awake and asleep. I love the organic simplicity of babies, just as they are, so you will not find an over-abundance of props or crazy hats or too much stretching or contortion. What you see in my portfolio is fairly typical of what you can expect from a session… keeping in mind that every baby, and every family, is different, and each session a bit unique.
I photograph newborns at either your home, or my studio. The choice is yours. There are a lot of other little details we will need to review and discuss, so please contact me for details!
