Lifestyle newborn sessions are all about capturing this amazing time with your baby and family in the comfort of your own home. It will be less about posing, and more about natural, candid, and real moments.

Bright, natural lit rooms are required for this session. The living room, bedroom and nursery are great places to consider. Please have them clean and clutter free. Any props that you choose to provide should be ready when the session starts. Good items to consider having available are swaddles/blankets, bows/hats, outfits, or flower wreaths. Props that will not be used are buckets, baskets, or props that require extensive posing in order to keep your baby as safe as possible.

I can't wait to capture the love your newborn brings, thank you for choosing me as your newborn photographer.

Frequently Asked Questions


WHAT IF MY BABY IS CRYING?
This is totally normal and expected! I will get candid shots of you comforting baby, breast-feeding (optional), and even baby crying - after all, that's part of newborn life! We also take time to feed and change baby to make sure they are comfortable, and then continue.

HOW CAN I PREPARE BABY?
Baby should be fed right before the session starts and fully burped, so that she will be as comfortable as possible during the shoot. Please remove any socks or tight fitting clothing from her well before the session, they leave marks on their skin for a while. Gently wipe away any eye boogers or flaky skin with a wet, warm washcloth.

HOW CAN I PREPARE MY HOUSE?
Find the rooms with the best lighting, or the biggest windows. If you are unsure, I am happy to help you beforehand by looking at pictures! The most typical rooms we use are the living room, nursery, and master bedroom. These rooms should be clean and clutter-free.

WHAT IF MY HOUSE IS DARK WITH SMALL WINDOWS?
You might consider renting a studio if you or I don't feel like your house will work for this. If that's not an option, we can always find at least one spot inside, do some outside if weather permits, or have darker/moodier pictures which still works well for these sessions.

CAN I SHOW YOU A PINTEREST BOARD OF PICTURES I WANT?
You can choose your favorite 1-2 images and we will try to get them. Every family and session is different. Pinterest is is a great resource but it is full of photographers' very best and favorite shot from their session, so to expect a whole pinterest board of the very best work from multiple photographers is just unrealistic and it doesn't allow me to use my own creativity during the shoot, resulting in everyone being unhappy.

ARE THERE ANY DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE?
Yes! There are a few ways you can get a discount.
  • Referrals: Get a $25 credit to use at your session within one year for referring someone who books, or a free mini session for referring a wedding that books with me.
  • Paying Cash at the session will get you a $20 discount.
  • Mini Sessions still gets you a ton of amazing pictures, at a more affordable price
  • Back-to-back sessions will get you a $50 discount. Prices listed are for the best lighting and/or golden hour. Discounted sessions are before a golden hour session with brighter, but still beautiful, lighting. Travel fees to locations outside of the 30 mile radius are also greatly discounted.
  • Book a maternity session: You get a $50 discount for booking a maternity session and newborn session.

HOW MUCH ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?
Travel fees vary based on location, time and miles. When locations are sent out, any additional fees will be included with that location so it isn't a surprise at the end.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY SESSION?
One of the perks of booking with me is that I send you an outfit at the time of booking! This will go over colors, patterns and textures to help you figure out what to wear! Im also always open to answer any questions or help you decide. I've had many people send me pictures of things they were deciding on and I've let them know if it would photograph well or if they should go with something else! Im always happy to help.

How To Prepare


CLEAN + DECLUTTER YOUR HOUSE
Find the rooms with the best lighting (typically master bedroom, nursery, livingroom), and have them clean and clutter free. Remove anything that is unnecessary and makes things look cluttered, like charging cables, tissue boxes, stacks of blankets, etc.

HAVE ALL ITEMS READY
Any outfits, blankets, hats, bows, etc. that you want to use should be out and ready for quick changing. The more we change baby, the more they will wake up. 2-3 outfits is a good amount. Its better to change out blankets and bows or hats to keep them sleepy.

EAT BEFORE + BRING SNACKS + TREATS
Your kids will not do well on empty stomachs. Eat a meal before (in a change of clothes!) to help with hangry moods, plus bring snacks. Please do not bring colored snacks, things that get stuck in teeth, or are hard to chew and produce a lot of extra saliva, like suckers, goldfish, chocolate, gummy bears, etc. The best snacks to bring are pretzels, marshmallows, smarties, or cheerios. Now, here is the secret tip that will make a HUGE difference with how your children do: Do not bring out the sweet treats until half way through the session! Sometimes it helps to not even mention that you are bringing a sweet treat for them. Only give them cheerios or something similar in the beginning. Then when they start to really lose patience, thats when you bring out the treats and it will help them get through the last half! If you bring out the treats in the beginning, they will start off the session grumpier because they will just want more treats.

SMILE EVEN WHEN YOUR KIDS AREN'T
Yes, Photoshop works sometimes but not every time. If you try to keep a smile on your face the whole time, then we will get amazing pictures when your kids smile! Some sessions are spent trying to get the children to cheer up the entire time. In those cases, it is absolutely crucial that you keep a smile on your face and keep your energy high throughout the session! I still get amazing shots even with grumpy kids as long as the parents just pretend like nothing crazy is happening ;)

OFFER A BRIBE
This works great for kids 3 and up! Offer to get a treat after, a toy from the dollar store, or an actual dollar!

PLAY AND HAVE FUN
Your kids will feed off of your energy. Make this a fun experience for them by being happy and playful rather than scolding them. I've been doing this for a long time and the best results always come from families who play and giggle together.
