Newborn days are truly precious...
They will never be this little again
no matter how smalla person's a person
the taylorsI am so happy we did this, I treasure these photos more than anything!
A custom lifestyle newborn session will be done in the comfort of your home. This means that I will come to your home and beautifully capture this fleeting time in your life. No need to pack up everything to go spend an indefinite amount of time in an uncomfortable studio. This is one of the biggest benefits of a lifestyle session, besides the organic and natural quality of images of course!ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGES


My newborn sessions focus on the family interaction and connection in your family when you bring your baby home. My sessions are in your home, relaxed, time efficient, and they result in a gallery full of beautiful moments captured that tell the story of this time. I practice what I call natural "Baby Led Posing." This means that I don't ever put a baby in a flower pot. :) I think babies are beautiful as they are. The natural unfolding of a newborn's limbs when the stretch, the way they curl up when placed on their belly for a moment, the way they look when cozily swaddled, all of that is so simple and beautiful to me. This is how I remember my babies, and that is how I photograph them.

Your Newborn Session Experience

Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home and tell the story of your family in a natural and relaxed way. Your session will document the beauty and connection of the immediate family in this incredibly sweet time of life. Newborn sessions feature the newborn and his or her immediate family and usually last around two hours.

Simple, All-Inclusive PricinG


I want you to have your images, simple. I never want you to have to choose your favorite images and I don’t like to restrict the images I edit and place in your gallery. For that reason, my newborn sessions are designed to tell the story of this time, and they come with all the edited photos. The images are individually balanced and prepared for you to do what you wish with them. My style of photography results in a collection of photos that tells your story at this moment, and speaks to your family’s unique beauty and connection.

You session fee includes my session planning guidance, your in home newborn session experience, your personal password protected gallery, and all the high resolution digital photos from your gallery to keep for life and print and use as you like. I also offer printing and retouching services on any of your images if you need that. Just click the contact link below to get started!
