My newborn sessions are captured in the comfort of your own home – documentary style and relaxed. The baby does not need to be asleep the whole time, and there is no rush to schedule these sessions immediately. Once you are home and settled with baby we can schedule your session on a weekday morning within the next few weeks – or whenever it feels right to you. I aim to capture the love, connection, and emotion of those first days home with your new family. You can rock them to sleep and simply love on them. I do not bring props and I use your windows as my light source. I do not pose your baby, but rather photograph him or her in your arms or wrapped up snugly and sleeping peacefully. Your home does not need to be reorganized and cleaned for me, and your clothing does not need to be fancy. Your favorite swaddles, blankets, or a simple onesie are all the baby needs for a wardrobe. I also bring a few outfits and blankets along with me. Dress your family in neutral, comfortable clothing. There is plenty of time allotted for diaper changes, feedings, and anything else that comes up in the course of ordinary life at home with young children (and I will document these moments as well).
- a minimum of 35 personally hand-edited high-resolution images to be delivered in an online gallery for viewing and downloading (2-3 weeks after the session takes place)
- up to 2 hours of shooting time to allow for feedings, diaper changes, and soothing
- a personalized gift of textured square prints designed and packaged by me
In-home Newborn: $500 plus PA sales tax
Maternity sessions can be scheduled in conjunction with your newborn session or as a standalone session. See below for maternity options. Please note the mini-maternity session is only available as a bundle with the newborn session.
Maternity sessions are scheduled in the evening during sunset in the 7th-8th month of your pregnancy. I have a variety of outdoor locations that I use, and we can discuss these together. I typically shoot these sessions on weeknights (Monday through Friday).
