Newborn Session Share





Had to snap a few of gorgeous proud big sister while little guy was eating!

Inspiration: Design & style magazines. I have a slight addiction to shopping so I do a lot of prop/studio shopping so clients will always see something new for a session. I love interior design & when I can bring style & design into my sessions it makes it that much more fun.

Favorite Element: Focus is always the baby but I love adding an element of style. I love the use of texture & color with fabrics, knit hats, hardwoods, baskets, bowls, trunks & ottomans.

Biggest Challenge: This little guy came to visit at my studio the morning after he got home from the hospital at just 2 days old! My biggest challenge was although he was very sleepy he was very jumpy & his little hands were so hard to get to lay flat. I love the softness of babies hands when we can get them open and to lay flat. Usually when we get a baby into a good deep sleep we can do a lot of posing with them but with this little guy he was a little feisty any time we moved him. Even though he was just 2 days old he was over 9lbs so lots of baby chub! I loved his baby chunky cheeks & he was so adorable so although he was a little feisty I still loved photographing him!

What Clients said?: “We LOVE the pictures of our little guy! You ladies are amazing!”

Photographer’s final words: Newborns are my favorite. There is a short window of capturing the pure sweetness of newness & I feel blessed I get to photograph so many new babies each month. Each newborn session brings a sweet new baby & new challenges… maybe that is why I love them so much? xo

  • Redefining the One-Year Portrait Experience
    Inspiration — My one-year portrait elements are inspired by the parents, with my own neutral flair. For direction, this client asked for “rustic/floral”. She also wanted the look of a tutu in at least one portion, so I incorporated one of my many whimsical handmade dresses to tie in a classic, timeless look with a […]
