LIFESTYLE NEWBORN 

The day you meet that little life you've been growing for nine long months is exhilarating, but exhausting. Hiring a newborn lifestyle photographer to ensure your experience and baby's first moments are beautifully captured is quickly becoming an essential part of the journey into parenthood. Imagine the relief from all of the pressure to capture the moments, and just being able to focus on the important work you're doing and soaking up all of that new baby sweetness. I give you the freedom to simply enjoy the ride, secure in the knowledge that every detail is being is being preserved for you. Sessions take place in the comfort of your home and are relaxed.

WORKING WITH ME

ONE: BOOK YOUR SESSION
Click the button above to contact me and let me know you are interested in booking me for a newborn session. Once I have confirmed my availability for your desired time frame, you will receive a contract and invoice. You are considered booked once your contract is signed and a non-refundable retainer of 50% of your total balance is paid. 

TWO: GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER - QUESTIONNAIRE
Once you are booked I will send you a questionnaire designed to help me get to know your family and when your expected little one is arriving. I will ask you to tell me about your style, the things you love about one another, and the things you love to do together. 

THREE: DESIGN TIME
Newborn lifestyle sessions are meant to be very personalized, deeply meaningful, and candid. I am going to soak in everything you tell me in your questionnaires and pull out suggestions for a custom designed session that will echo all you wish to remember about the welcoming of your new family member. If you have ideas for your session, please share them with me. If you're at a loss, don't worry! Every family has an incredible story to tell, and I am great at envisioning ways to bring that story to life visually. 

FOUR: DETAILS
Once we have a plan, we will determine the best time of day for your session. We'll schedule your session date, discuss wardrobe, and go over any other details. * Newborn sessions take place in your home. The session will be scheduled in the morning between 10 or 11 am, approximately one week after your due date. Should you go past your due date or otherwise need to reschedule, your session date can be pushed back.

FIVE: SESSION DAY
We will meet and create a beautiful editorial of your baby's arrival.  I will rarely ask you to look at me. In fact, I really want you to forget that I am there and focus on making memories with the people you love. You will not fret over messes, wrinkles, or uncooperative baby or siblings. You will laugh, and hug, and play together. I will capture it all.

SIX: THE BEST PART!
When I get home, I will prepare your film for submission to be professionally processed and any digital media will be downloaded and worked on. Once your collection is ready (usually within 3 weeks!) you will be contacted with all the details to review your images (grab a tissue box!) and how to place your order. You are given 7 days to get your order submitted, so I can immediately begin working on your products and get them to you as quickly as possible. 

 

The first year of baby's life is pretty special!
