Your home, your newborn, your love.
So they'll always know where their childhood began.
Those first few weeks after your baby's birth can be a blur, and their little bodies and personalities change and grow in a blink. I don't want you to haul your family to a studio or prop your baby in a bucket; I want to give you beautiful images in your own home, with your baby where they should be...in your arms. My newborn sessions are no-stress, with minimal posing and maximum cuddles, using the backdrop of your own home to tell your story.
What is an in-home newborn session?
If only everything in life were this easy! After your baby is born, we will set a date for his or her newborn session. This can be a few days after birth, a week or two later, or a month or two later. Every family's postpartum journey looks a little bit different, and I'll be ready when you are ready. I will ask you to text me some pictures of your home, and when I arrive, I will have a flexible plan ready to go. We will stick with 1-2 rooms with the best light, and I will gently guide you into a few natural poses. Got toddlers? Dogs? Bring it on! I've got a toddler myself and I know all the tricks. We will take plenty of breaks for cuddles, diaper changes, and feeding. And you'll get beautiful, timeless images of your sweet baby in their first home.
Lifestyle photography packages start at $390, with payment plans available

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you do in-home newborn sessions?
My family has lots of nice family portraits of all of us smiling in a studio. But the images that I truly cherish are the ones of my brother and I in the backyard, making forts in our living room, and smearing food on our faces as babies in the kitchen. Your home is your safe haven, and whether it is big or small, immaculate and neat (haven't seen one of those yet!) or messy and "lived-in" (those are the best!), we can get beautiful images of your family. Your home is perfect just the way it is.
Trust me, it's cool. My house is run by a tiny toddler tornado, and my career is centered around being the homes of expecting and newly postpartum families...I'm not expecting perfection! We really will only focus on 1-2 rooms, and we will discuss that ahead of time. I'll shove the clutter under the bed and into a bathroom, and I might adjust some furniture to put you in the best light. Even if you don't have a magazine-ready home (who does??), we will still be able to get beautiful images of your perfect little baby in your arms.
Let's be real. I have a newborn, nobody has slept, and my house is a wreck.
How many images will I get? Are they edited?
Lifestyle Sessions include 20-25 high-resolution images, delivered via a private, online gallery. All images are edited and available in both color and black and white. You will receive your gallery within 4 weeks, but often much sooner than that.
Can I share images on social media?
Absolutely! I will give you a set of watermarked images that are optimized for online sharing that are perfect for posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. I also offer birth announcements or holiday cards that I design, print, and mail for you myself, if you are interested!
Will you share my images online?
Only if you'd like me to! One of the reasons I was drawn to birth and baby photography is because each how special and life-changing those first few hours and days are to a family. That's why I love blogging my clients' images and telling their stories! If you prefer not to have your images shared online, I am also very respectful of that.
