IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE YOUR NEW BABY

Gorgeous in-home lifestyle photography to welcome your newborn!

Welcome!  I’m so glad you’re here!  You are embarking on one of life’s greatest adventures!  A newborn photoshoot is the perfect way to capture those euphoric, sleep deprived moments of new baby life.  Take a peek at my work, read about my style, and then contact me so we can chat!

You’ll love this easy-going, in-home photography session!

Everyone feels more comfortable at home.  With plenty of extra diapers, blankets, and clothes around, you don’t have to worry about looking perfect and instead can look perfectly at your new baby.

I love saying YES and in these sessions we say YES to pets, siblings, reading books, feeding the baby, snuggling in a chair, jumping on the bed (with mom’s permission), and being barefoot.  I’ll use natural light to make your family look dreamy and capture little moments of your natural everyday life. Your kids want to color? Let’s do it.  Dog needs a pet? Okay! Baby needs food/snuggles/diaper/clothing change?  No problem.

This is a no-stress, show-up-in-your-best-black-t-shirt kind of session!

My planning & prep guide will give you further guidance on how to prepare, but they are merely suggestions and nothing is required.

Your focus should be on taking care of the people in your life, not worrying about your living room.

When I arrive, I’ll take off my shoes.  It’s time to get comfortable together.

If you’re not 100% ready when I arrive, that’s okay too. I’ll photograph your kids or your beautiful plants or something that inspires me and gets all of my juices flowing.

I’ll meet your children and pets. I’ll ask to see big sister’s room or take a tour of your house with your dog.  I’ll take a look around to find dreamy soft light and beautiful locations for curling up together.

If your baby is asleep, I will start with just the baby, but a sleepy baby is never required for great photos.  We’ll chat and talk.  Your kids might get out a board game.  I’ll take some pictures of that too. This is a big moment for everyone in the family.

We’ll do more composed photos with each parent and of you both with your baby together. We’ll corral all the wild siblings into one place and take some deep breaths together for a beautiful family moment.  And, if there are no siblings, that gives us lots of time to photograph your baby and focus on this new magical, wonderful gift you’ve brought into your life.

There’s no rush.  No session is scheduled after yours.  I’m not going to get in the way of your afternoon nap, but I’m also not going anywhere.

I spend 2-3 weeks culling through your images to pull all out ONLY THE BEST.  Let’s face it, you already have 10,000 photos on your phone and you don’t need 500 more to wade through from me!

I carefully edit all your images into a beautiful collection to reflect the unfolding story of your family at this moment in time.

I’m going to present a full edited, full resolution, gallery of around 50-80 photos with both color and black & white edits.  You’re going to pull up a chair with a steaming cup of tea and look through the incredible pictures of your family and try to not to add saltwater tears to your morning brew.

Your gallery also includes options to just click-and-order framed wall art, an heirloom album that lasts 100+ years, prints, and a curated selection of my favorite photo gifts.  In other words, you can easily make your home come to life with the portraits we took together.

And, after we spend that intimate time together, we’re now friends for life.  I hope you connect with me on social media or even in real life and that we celebrate your people with family photo sessions for many years to come.

I met Sharon 4 years ago when she did my oldest daughters newborn photos. Since then I can’t imagine using any other photographers. Sharon is immensely talented and a session with her is full of such joy, you can truly tell she has such a passion for what she does. I am so grateful for the memories she has captured in our lives, and more grateful to call her my friend! – Jessica D.
