Celebrate Your Growing Family

As a natural newborn photographer, I absolutely love when I get to photograph siblings with their new baby brother or sister. Including siblings is an amazing way to get them excited about the new baby! The birth of a new sibling is exciting, new, sparks curiosity, and just a bit of chaos. Including your first baby/babies in your newborn lifestyle session is a perfect “gift” to give them to make them feel special and included in the celebration of the new baby! This big sister was the sweetest and gave so much love to her new baby brother Tahoe. She also had a blast jumping on the bean bag, where we do solo shots of babies – it’s always the sibling’s favorite! Newborn lifestyle sessions are all about your growing family, and celebrating your love for one another. Involving their siblings in the shoot will create some picture-perfect memories of their first interactions and excitement together.

Gallery Wall Design

We designed a gallery wall to incorporate their engagement, wedding, maternity & newborn portraits (that they already had) with their most recent session of their newest addition to the family. Creating a gallery wall is something that you can continue to add onto as you have more professional portrait sessions done! A gallery wall is the perfect way to display all of your favorite memories of your seasons as a growing family. It acts as a beautiful reminder of where you’ve come from, and where you are now. We design your gallery wall (including frame choices and imagery to be framed) in our design consultation appointment post session. Here, you will be presented with all of your options to turn your photos into breathtaking artwork that reflects your home style and family vibe. From heirloom albums, to framed images, to customizable and timeless gifts, we have you covered with everything you need to turn your images into tangible keepsakes.

Sweet and Natural Newborn Photographer

My favorite part about newborn portraits is how sweet and serene the look swaddled while nuzzled in your arms. The newborn stage is a beautiful and precious time, where they’re still sleepy and can be easily posed. I always tell my clients that the sooner they can come in for newborn portraits, the better – the window I try to book for is by 14 days old. Your little one will have their own fresh swaddle to be bundled in, and an assortment of timeless and classic newborn accessories we can use for portrait styling. These images will become your most cherished, and it’s so important to me for them to be completely natural, organic, and full of emotion. I will direct you into natural and flattering poses as you hold and snuggle your little one, letting you experience this sweet time of quiet bonding as I click away. This is the best opportunity to start your collective Membership, where we capture all of baby’s milestones within the first year (newborn, 6 month, and one year portraits). Message me to find out more about how you can join this program!

Embracing This New Season of Motherhood

You just spent 9 months with this precious little life in your belly, and the moment you’ve been dreaming of has finally come. They’re here! All you want to do is oak up every last minute of snuggles, breastfeeding, bonding, and smiles. This is your time to shine, mama. Our portrait sessions completely capture the essence of motherhood and the beauty that your unique story brings. As a mama myself, I know how fleeting and special this time is with your babies – watching them grow, memorizing every feature, and falling in love with your new normal. Each and every detail of your portrait session is taken care of, so that you can fully embrace this bonding time with your baby and family. I offer luxury hair and make up, wardrobe, and family styling services to ensure that you feel completely pampered and relaxed during your portrait sessions.
