How does a newborn session work?

During the first two weeks after your baby is born is when I recommend having newborn sessions. During this time we can easily get the gorgeous sleepy newborn photographs that you can see above. Sessions are around 2-3 hours of time at your home, this is not all photography time but also time to nurse and calm the baby as well as to photograph. I try to keep it as stress-free as possible so by allotting more time, no one feels too pressured.

I like using lots of blankets, your bed, the baby's room, and props like little baskets! Even if you don't feel up for really being a big part of the photos we can always do more relaxed and casual shots with your hands or feet, or them curled up in your arms. My goal is for you to have a beautiful variety of photos to choose from. That means some posed and many unposed. Of course I LOVE when I get input from you and your partner. If you have any specific things that you would like to do or sentimental props (your own newborn blanket, perhaps?) that you might want in the photos I'm all about it. I want these photographs to be reflective of your growing family and it's personality as well as documenting this new little life entering the world.
