Sweet Baby Gia

Oh did I ever have so much fun with this family! I loved being able to document this family with a new baby, 6 year old twins, and two teens. I love the vibrant garden and the vibrant energy this family has! The love and silliness and beauty shines right through. I love how excited their pup even is to have a new baby in the house! Of course baby Gia pretty much just slept and smiled her way through her session. She even rocked her posed shots! She flashed her bright smile, she stared in to the camera with her beautiful eyes, and she also slept and gave us some sweet sleepy expressions.
In-home lifestyle newborn sessions are wonderful! If you want this kind of newborn session, but you also want those posed studio shots, you can definitely have both! I have an add-on where I can bring the natural light studio to your home. It’s the perfect way to end a lifestyle newborn session!

Baby Bumps + Birth Meetings

When people contact me about documenting their baby’s birthing day the first thing we do is set up a meeting to chat and get to know each other a little more. After we chat we do a little complimentary mini maternity session. This gives you a feel for what it’s like to be in front of the camera and allows you to see yourself in my images before you commit to having me document this momentous time in your life. There are no retakes when in comes to birth so you need to be confident in who you are trusting to document such a life changing experience.
I always recommend you contact me early, like as soon as you realize you want your birth documented, because with the nature of this type of photography I can only take 2 births per month and I need to keep them spaced by 2 weeks to be fully confident that births won’t overlap. This means my birth schedule is often booked up. However, if you contact me last minute when you are nearly full term, there’s a chance I can fit you in because sometimes the mama who is booked for the same time you are due already had her baby which opens up the spot. For example, the first family featured below was my early March mama, and baby was born yesterday! So, if you are expecting your baby between now and mid-March and are looking for a birth photographer, you are in luck because a spot has opened up! Contact me ASAP!

Now scroll down to see a bunch of recent mini maternity sessions at different stages of pregnancy (and different times of the year). Most of these babies have been born, and some of these babies are still cozy in the womb for just a little bit longer.
