"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce."
~ Karl Lagerfield
The newborn and postpartum phase is not glamorous but it is so very short-lived. Your baby will not stay tiny for long. All those sleepless nights turn into foggy recollections of tender moments. You don't want to miss the time-sensitive opportunity of scheduling a beautiful newborn portrait session. These are photos that you will be able to look at for years to come as you celebrate all the upcoming years as a parent.
There is so much power and emotion in a photo that captures everything essential about your newborn and you. Over the years I have been photographing newborns, I have learned that the simpler the session, the more timeless and classic your images will be. I focus more on moments than props, more on human touch than on color. My newborn portrait sessions document the sweet new relationships that are being fostered in your growing immediate family. For that reason, I welcome parents and siblings to my home studio for a newborn session.
The best time to connect with me and reserve a newborn portrait session is while you are in your first or second trimester. That will ensure that I am able to dedicate a portrait session to your newborn when they are expected to arrive. We all know that due dates are estimated and some newborns and parents take a little longer to adjust after baby comes home. I happily work with families and all the special considerations that arise in that newborn period. But my schedule is most flexible to those who have reserved a newborn session ahead of time.
