newborns

There is nothing that I don't love about newborn babies. The way they smell like a mix between baby soap and milk, the softness of their skin, the downy fluff on top of their heads (and sometimes backs and bums). When you pick them up and they settle their sleepy weight on your chest, and you breathe them in and the world, the chaos, the stress of the day melts away and you just immediately calm and feel at peace. Yeah... it probably comes as no surprise that  I have 6 of my own babies <3

When you come in for your design consult we will design the session you have been DREAMING of since you earned those magical names of mommy and daddy to be. We will choose the props and set ups that set your heart a flutter, and help you to savour those incredibly precious first moments. I want to hear your vision for your photos, and what you intend to do with them so as to make the very best out of your session.

It's important to know that I only take on a set number of newborns a month so it is very important to contact early *I suggest around the beginning of your second trimester* 

At your newborn session I want you to relax, settle onto my chaise, drink a cup of coffee, cruise facebook, nap or watch how it all unfolds as my assistant and I expertly pose your little bundle and create magic using the sets and props we had previously discussed right before your eyes. 

Babies are a little unpredictable but we can almost always expect them to  wake, need a diaper change, a snack and settle back to sleep. For this reason newborn sessions last roughly 3 hours. If your little peanut doesn't settle right back to sleep, I will wrap him (or her) and get photos of those gorgeous baby blues <3 nothing will derail me from creating newborn art for you to cherish for years to come <3
