Fresh 48h hospital or home session
Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby’s life, these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever. I will come to your place of birth within 48 hours. This is not a traditional newborn session; I will not pose the baby or bring props or lights. This will just be me capturing your baby’s sweet new moments in a fresh natural way!Fresh 48 is special because there are very few (if any) things more raw, important and emotional in life than having a baby. For a lot of moms and parents the first couple of hours and days after delivery can be a blur because of all the changes, actual labor and post delivery. I want you to REMEMBER how beautiful the two of you looked as brand new parents. I want you to REMEMBER how it felt to look at your brand new baby and to DETAIL how fresh and new they looked just coming into the world. There’s nothing like it.
In studio newborn session
Newborns are best photographed between 5-14 days old. Please contact me when you know your due date and we will set your session date .Session typically take place in the morning when baby is at their sleepiest.
Some families who love the lifestyle look but do not feel their homes have enough light, have an option for a more natural newborn session in the studio. I created a bedroom with double-size bed and wall of window with sheers to create beautiful images.
I have a training and practice with posing babies. I will never place your baby into an unsafe position.
Newborn studio sessions last about 2-3 hours. All family members are included in these sessions.
lifestyle newborn sessions
Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. This is a great way to get images in your new nursery, with pets, etc. 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. No posing (either of the baby or family) is done in-home, just gentle and relaxed direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur. All family members are included.
maternity session lifestyle, studio or outside
Maternity sessions are the best way to remember this monumental time in your life. Whether this is your first baby, or you are adding a new member to your family, a maternity session allows you to capture the emotions and love that you are feeling in the final months of your pregnancy.
Best time to schedule your maternity session is 32-36 weeks. This is when you will have a nice little bump, but before you are too big to move comfortably. Some moms love to have more of a sexy shoot, some more playful and some just want their belly documented with their husband or other children. Consider how you feel about varying levels of undress in your photographs, and the final look that you want in your pictures. You need to feel comfortable enough to discuss this. Please don’t hesitate to tell me if you are not comfortable in a certain pose or with a certain body part uncovered.
I have beautiful gowns and outfits to choose from or you can bring your own.Strongly consider having your hair and makeup done.The final photographs are yours, and I want you to be happy with the images. That is the most important thing!
