There is nothing more beautiful than newborn photography. I understand the importance of preserving your family's most precious moments. I am proud to provide an unforgettable experience and create stunning portraits that celebrate you and the beautiful life you created.
Welcoming a new baby into your family is a joyful and beautiful time. It can also be filled with sleepless nights and busy days. You want professional images of your baby but with so much going on you wonder when you will find the time to travel to a studio and spend 2 to 3 hours there because it can often take that long for a newborn session.
I will travel to your home. I will bring my gear and all the props needed with me. I am a gentle and patient mother of two, step-mother to three, and grandmother to six grand-babies. I am also a former hospital newborn photographer. With my years of experience along with all of training I have had, you will immediately feel comfortable as soon as you meet me. In fact, before your session, we will talk and get to know each other before we book your session. You will have the ability to read reviews about me from past clients.
I recommend capturing newborn portraits in the first 4-12 days when your baby is very sleepy and flexible. This is the best time to capture those precious curled-up poses. While beautiful images can be captured at any stage and I work with newborns of all ages, keep in mind that once beyond those first days we will not be able to get the sleepy, curled up poses. If you are sure you want specific poses, please ask about those during your consultation.
All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a consultation session. You will discuss ideas on style, colors, props and wardrobe. We will work closely with you and learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that you will have a relaxed newborn photo session. Once your session is booked, we will send you a Newborn Guide with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your baby's first photo session.
I use natural materials for props and accessories that are gentle to your baby's skin. Most of the hand knit soft props and wraps are made of 100% natural organic yarn. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.
Your Newborn Session
I love keeping newborn portraits simple without overpowering them with props or unnatural posing. Your newborn session will be done at your home, or in my studio in Waterport, New York. The choice is yours and we will discuss this during your consultation. I am very comfortable traveling with my studio. I will bring all the props and wardrobe essentials that are needed. Your baby's comfort and safety is the most important part of this entire experience. During your session I will bring mom, dad and any siblings and pets into the session for a few shots. Don't worry about how long it will take to get all the perfect shots you are visioning. We will make sure to plan for it and work around any obstacles that may come up during the session.
Professional photo retouching is included in your newborn session. I specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing and while I focus on a natural look I will edit to your liking.
Displaying Your Art
I offer high quality fine art prints, gorgeous gallery wraps and elegant framed wall collections for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful memories.
