Capture: Newborns

After all the waiting and wondering, it’s finally time to meet your bundle of joy. From the pregnancy announcement to the gender reveal to delivery and then, at last, the newborn baby in your arms, these moments happen so quickly but you’ll want to remember them forever.

Photographing the gender reveal and maternity shoot are just the beginning of the excitement. Allow me to capture those tender moments leading up to the birth of your baby. The moments in the hospital where mom is squeezing dad’s hand, kissing her forehead and holding her anyway he can. The moments of eagerness and nervousness in their eyes. Photographing you holding your newborn for the first time. Looking at him or her in total awe. Those first raw moments of a new family are beautiful.

Whether it’s your first baby or your fifth, the first moments with your newborn are precious and priceless. The Fresh 48 (the first few days of a newborn’s life) are a great option for families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Following the Fresh 48, newborn portraits are wonderful fun to witness and to capture for your new family as well. 

Having my own little ones, I understand the importance of these moments as it won’t be long and they’ll be all grown up! With your newborn’s safety top of mind, I’ll work with you to create a themed newborn shoot in my home studio or something in the baby’s nursery. Let’s work together to determine what you would like captured. Having photos taken in the hospital is not for everyone and I will work with you to get the photos you want in a setting where you’re comfortable. Capturing these moments is a privilege let’s talk and see how I can photograph these newborn and new family moments for you!

Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! Looking for baby announcements, invitations or party collateral—you’ve come to the right place!
