I still remember exactly how I felt the day my first baby was born. The rush of emotions. I was so happy and relieved that he was here and healthy and safe. There were so many things I was feeling beyond that. It was overwhelming! If there is one thing I wish I could go back and do over, it is having someone come in and document through a lens those first few days. Those hours go by so quickly and I can never have them back. What is more precious than having those sweet moments, filled with so much emotion, locked in time through a photograph?
What to expect at your in Home Newborn Session
The last thing I want you to do right after you've had a baby is worry or fret. These sessions are not posed. You do not need to have your family dressed in their Sunday best. In fact, some of the time robes and jammies are worn. If that's a bit too casual for your family, just jeans and a nice shirt are perfect. I suggest wearing socks or slippers and skip the shoes. We will most likely be in your bedroom, the nursery, kitchen and living room. These are intended to truly capture your life as it is now with a new baby.
When I come in, my goal is to capture your raw, intimate moments. If baby starts crying, I will get those. If there is an accident, I always hope to capture the laughs that naturally come from those. These are real life photos. Nursing, bottle feeding, hugging, snuggling, laughing, crying and everything in between. The newborn days are over quickly. This is why I do what I do. I want to be able to save those fleeting minutes and hours for you to look back on and cherish forever.
