from the first heartbeat to endless cuddles

Now, they're finally cradled in your arms—a moment of peace and overwhelming love. Each day brings new discoveries, filled with sleepy smiles, delicate coos, and the softest hair.

The newborn stage is a whirlwind of emotions and sleepless nights. Your baby grows and changes daily, making these moments incredibly precious.

As those tiny legs stretch and those itty-bitty nails become less daunting to trim, you'll want to remember every coo and sleepy smile. We'll capture the essence of this short-lived phase.

Simply put, let your kids be themselves—no forced smiles or sitting still required. We'll play, run around, and share plenty of natural magical moments.

How do you keep kids engaged?

Lifestyle newborn sessions focus on capturing authentic moments with your baby. To enhance these, I provide props like a cozy Moses basket and various blankets and swaddles for added charm and comfort.

Do you provide props for lifestyle newborn sessions?

My newborn sessions last around 90 minutes, depending on the baby. I aim to capture beautiful images without exhausting your family. Whether your baby sleeps or not, it's all baby-led.

How long do newborn sessions usually last?

Expecting moms often inquire about newborn sessions during pregnancy. Once you book, I'll reserve your due date. After your baby arrives and you're settled, contact me to schedule a convenient date.
