I remember my mom used to always tell me, you don’t know what love is until you have a child! Now I know exactly what she meant.
When I get the chance to be a part of a newborn session, I find myself feeling like I just experienced a miracle. A true newborn session is done within the first 10 days of the new baby’s life. This gives the chance to truly be able to capture the newborn while they are still so small and new. Newborn sessions are so much fun because they take place in their new home. I know that both the parents and the newborns are extremely comfortable here, and that brings a level of authenticity out in each session.
My hope for parents when they see their newborn photos is that they see so many things. I hope they see the sweet and unique spirit of their incredible new addition. I hope that they see their loved ones in the props and clothing that we get to use- the fun hats, blankets, and other accessories. I hope they see themselves as they look at the expressions their child is already making. And I truly hope that for years to come they remember with fondness the experience they had while those photos were being taken.
My goal is to truly capture those little tiny details that you’ve completely fallen in love with, so you can remember how tender, sweet, and small they were when they were first made part of this world! Here are some of my absolute favorite moments during the newborn sessions I’ve experienced.
