The Newborn Experience

I take lifestyle newborn photographs. There is something so sweet about having heirloom photographs made in your own home and in your baby's nursery! You know? The one you slaved over? The nursery in which you'll rock your baby to sleep many nights. The sofa you'll sit on when you first hear your baby say those first words. The rug on which your baby will first crawl and later take his first steps. This is your real story and your real life. Therefore, I think these first few days of the baby's life are best documented here. This is where the baby's story begins!

Before baby's arrival

Let's be real for a moment, bringing a new baby into the world is quite the adventure. While it is oh so exciting, it can be exhausting! From nine months of pregnancy to those sleepless first days, being introduced to parenthood is not for the faint of heart.  So before baby makes his or her arrival, we're going to get all of the photo prep work out of the way. Thinking about what to wear is the last thing you're going to want to be thinking about once your little one arrives, so we will get all of the prep work out of the way before then! 

We'll talk about the best outfits and colors for you and your family well in advance of your session and how to best prepare baby, so that you feel prepared.  I'll also give you tips for preparing your home for our session, so that you can have the absolute best photos possible.                

During this time, you'll also have the chance to schedule a maternity session! These are some of my favorite sessions as they capture that glow of motherhood perfectly! Plus, you'll have access to the TR Client Closet! Not to brag, but I've been told I have good taste ;)

Baby's here!

We'll schedule a tentative session date based on your due date. We try to do this within the first ten days of your baby's life. I get it that baby's tend to work on their own time table though.

With that being the case, your session date truly is tentative. Once baby arrives, you'll email me or text me , and let me know that he or she is here. Based on the timing, we'll either stick with our originally planned date, or we'll adjust it to accommodate that little bundle of joy!

It's time for baby's debut!

 All of my newborn photo sessions take place in my clients' homes. Why? Because capturing you in your natural element is oh so important to me! You've put so much work into that nursery that it deserves to be captured! 

It's not just the nursery, though. It's your whole home.  You in YOUR element. It's a place that will hold so many precious memories for you. It's your baby's first home. Your baby will learn to walk here. Your baby will learn to talk here. Your home will one day hold such a dear place in your heart.

Not to mention, me coming to you is so convenient. Your body has just been through a lot, I understand that leaving the house is tough in those first few days.

It's picture time!

It's time to snuggle up with that cute little bundle of joy! There's lot of cuddles and snuggles during the newborn session ,but babies will be babies. This is totally ok! Newborn sessions are very laid back! I get that babies are unpredictable, and I always allow time for the unpredictable to happen.
