Due to limited availability I strongly recommend booking your newborn session with me before your third trimester begins. I take a very limited number of newborn clients each month to ensure that I am available whenever they have the baby. Newborn sessions are typically done 5-14 days after the birth. With that being said I have successfully photographed older newborns all the way to 6 weeks, so if your baby is over two weeks old and you are wanting newborn photos, don’t be discouraged! We can absolutely still work together. Sessions take place at my home studio. You will find that I have an amazing collection of high end props, outfits, headbands etc. available for use during your session. If you have something special that you would like to incorporate please feel free to bring it, but besides that you can just show up with baby and I have the rest covered! We will work together to customize your session with colors and props that you love. I can’t wait to meet you and your new addition!
I recommend booking your maternity session for between weeks 30 and 34 of your pregnancy. You want to have a nice round belly and be showing but you don’t want to be at the point where you are really uncomfortable. Some women embrace pregnancy, and others can’t wait for it to be over. Regardless of which side you fall, you do not want to skip your maternity session! As a mom of three, I can promise you that not only will you look back on these images in the years to come, but they are a priceless keepsake for your children to have of you. You cannot go back in time and recreate this! I also feel like when you are transitioning between one child to two (or more) it is so important to capture that bond and moment in time before the family dynamic shifts. It is my goal that each one of my Moms feels gorgeous during her session. I have beautiful gowns and floral crowns that you are welcome to wear. I also have the experience on how to shoot every body shape size in a way that is flattering!
