You will receive a session prep email before your session. I will gently guide you to having an easy session for your newborn. Most ideally, we want your baby happy and sleepy, better yet, asleep during their newborn session. Sleeping babies are easier to pose and transition into wraps and props which will make the session go smoothly.
At the beginning of your session, if your newborn has siblings and you want family pictures done, we will do that first. This allows us to get those oh so important pictures done before any of the children get restless. It also allows the option for them to leave with the other parent while the rest of the newborn pictures take place.
We will have two different backdrops for the table poses with different bonnets, sleepy hats, headbands, and of course poses. All of these options are decided upon in collaboration with each other.
I have a variety of beautiful wrap fabrics at the studio in a variety of colors and textures. I have multiple ways of wrapping your newborn for beautiful results in the pictures and for a comfortable baby.
I have a collection of props and love to incorporate the colors of your selections into props for your newborn. These are often my favorite pictures of the session. I get to be creative in planning your prop shots and they can be so beautiful. You can find an article on my most used props here.

I am married to the love of my life who has recently retired from the Army. We are back “home” after being away for 21 years. We have 3 young boys and 1 daughter who is pursuing her college career. As a photographer, I specialize in the newborns and maternity portraits. I just love the amazing process of pregnancy and then having that sweet, new bundle of joy to love. Capturing all that is so important and I feel so blessed to be a part of this special time in my client’s lives.
