I absolutely adore photographing newborns and I am always honored when I get invited to capture this special time in your life! Newborns are best photographed within the first few weeks of life (6-16 days old has been an ideal window in my experience for full term babies= 37+ weeks).
Newborn babies quickly outgrow the tiny, sleepy, curled up characteristics that are the hallmark of my newborn photography work so it is important not to wait on scheduling your newborn session.
I treat every newborn as my own, I work with them the best I can to get the most adorable & creative shots that I wish I had of my all children as babies. I know well that you may not be feeling your best so soon after giving birth, but if you would like to be included that is not a problem & with proper posing, lighting & editing we can do wonders!
It is best to schedule your newborn session while you are still pregnant in order to guarantee the best availability. I will "pencil-in" your due date and we will schedule your session date soon after baby's arrival. If you have already had your baby, please contact me ASAP.
The best part of coming to my in home studio for your newborn sessions is that I will have as much as possible prepared and set up prior to your arrival and clean up after you leave to insure a stress free experience for you.

*We do have a family pet, a cat named Charlie, he is very important to us. I understand that some people are allergic to cats so if that is the case then an outdoor session may be a better option since Charlie does have free range of the studio room while sessions aren't taking place.*
