When your baby is born, those first days and weeks are so sacred, special, cuddly, raw, emotional and fleeting. When you are in that post birth haze, it can be a bit difficult to remember to take photos of you and your little one yourself, but these days are important and worth remembering. When you hire me to do newborn photographs, I want to capture the moments as they are. I'll come to your home within the first 10 days after your sweet baby is born to capture images of your baby and your whole family together. No need to dress up, clean the house or set up props. I will be there to capture those beautiful, real, and raw first moments together.
If you are interested in having me come to your home to photograph you and your new baby, please contact me during your pregnancy to let me know when your estimated due date is, and we'll set an approximate date for the session. Once the baby is born, I will be in contact to see how you are all feeling and when you will be back home and ready for me to come over (with food in hand!) to photograph your new family together. If you would like for me to be there for your labor and birth to photograph those amazing moments, please let me know! Check out my birth photography gallery page to see some images and read more information on that kind of session. If birth photography is not for you but you would still love some fresher than fresh baby images, please scroll down to the next gallery to see images from my "Fresh 24" session.
With a Fresh 24 session, I will come to you within 24-48 hours after your baby is born. No matter what kind of birth you had, or wherever you had your baby, I will come to you to capture images from those very first moments of the first day of your baby's life. Everything during those first moments are so emotional and sometimes messy, but that's also what makes them the most beautiful. So many different images could be captured during this session. Siblings meeting for the first time, first moments of breastfeeding, packing up and getting ready to head home from the hospital, those fleeting images of bonding for the first time and everyone getting acquainted with each other. We will spend 1-2 hours together but I will try to be as out of the way as possible. We'll talk about how the birth went, your emotions, and how you felt when your met your baby for the first time. This session is definitely my favorite and I would love to be able to document this time for you and your new family. Please contact me during your pregnancy so we can discuss your hopes for this session.
