Family Centred Newborn
Family centred newborn sessions are a mixture of family lifestyle lead by your newborn and fine art newborn portraiture with a twist. They are ran very differently from my outdoor sessions. I'll send you a prep guide so you're fully prepared - but the biggest difference is the flow and energy. My outdoor sessions are high energy and involve a lot of movement and running. Indoor newborn sessions are very quiet, slow paced, and calm. I'm also very hands on and particular with positioning and posing in an authentic way because of the smaller light sources and space we're working within. These sessions normally take 2-3 hours and can take place in your home for those who don't want to travel, or my home studio. Either way everything is taken care of for you. I have a full selection of swaddles, head crowns and a client closet for you to play dress up with. I do not pose on bean bags or paper back drops - the backdrop is your home or my studio and I customize it in a unique way giving variety in your images and a luxury experience. There is no prop out there more beautiful and sentimental than your new family and that's what I'm there to capture. My studio is a unique boho setting with warm, muted tones which was designed to be a space where mamas and families are styled very particularly in order to make everything come together cohesively. It's a very small space, but I've worked hard to make it feel cozy and welcoming. Newborn sessions in clients homes are more flexible when it comes to styling because it's a different space with different decor colours and lighting situations, and it's a great option if your newborn has a toddler sibling.

Newborn Lifestyle Video
What if you could look back at not only professional photos of that quick newborn phase, but video as well? Photos freeze time, video shows the rest of the story. The little movements your newborn makes, those sleepy yawns, the breastfeeding bond, sibling interactions. The endless swaying and rocking as you soothe your little one to sleep. Sleep deprivation is real. When I look back on my son's newborn days, everything seems like a blur. I was so focused on healing, nursing every 2 hours, and the dishes piling in the sink that I hardly remember what it was like to hold such a tiny, perfect human. That's why I thought of the idea to offer a 2-4 minute film as an add-on option for Newborn Lifestyle sessions (also available for full family sessions as well).
