What a fun maternity session this was! I love that this gorgeous mama wanted to include smoke bombs in her maternity portraits. There is definitely a learning curve to working with them and the wind, but I think these turned out absolutely stunning! Doesn’t she look like a force to be reckoned with?Read More
You may be wondering how to keep a newborn asleep for their portrait session. There are no guarantees of course. Newborns are going to do whatever their instincts tell them, but there are some things parents can do at home a head of time for a better chance of a sleepy baby!
One tip is to keep baby awake for 1-2 hours before the session. It’s important though that you don’t keep them awake longer. Newborns need to sleep and if they are awake for too long they may become over tired and really hard to settle! 1 - 2 hours is the ideal time!Read More

I get so excited when I see a newborn come into the studio with a head full of hair!Read More

The newborn phase is very brief. In a few short weeks after your baby’s birth he/she will begin to become more alert. They will begin to fill out and just like that they are no longer a newborn. For newborn studio portraits it’s important to photograph newborns within the first 3 weeks of birth. In my years of experience I find the 2nd week to be the sweet spot. In order to pose a newborn they must be sleepy and relaxed and still flexible for posing.Read More

Fur babies are just as much a part of the family and I’m glad sweet girl was able to be included in a photo! They are often our babies before having babies!
The best time for newborn portraits is within the first 2 weeks of the baby’s birth. This is when they are most sleepy and cooperative and posable. It’s a good idea to reserve your spot with your photographer several months in advance to ensure they have room in their schedule for whenever you little one decides to make his or her appearance!Read More
There are many things to consider while shopping for a newborn photographer. The number one and often the only question I am ever asked is "what are your prices?".
