I love the attentiveness of family. Noah’s Auntie Lyla contacted me to book a session for her brother, sister-in-law & her brand new nephew. The memory & creativity of this gift will last forever; far longer than cute clothing that he’ll grow out of in a matter of weeks, or toys that he may enjoy for a few months & then will quickly be discarded as he’s drawn to something else. The older I get, the more I value thoughtful gifts that will last a lifetime.
I prefer to do newborn sessions at home. There’s SO much going on with the arrival of a new baby. You’ve just given birth, you’re transitioning into your new role as a parent, your emotions are running wild, you’re sleep deprived, and now you’re supposed to prep for a photo shoot?? Gathering clothes for all of you, planning for the potential diaper blow out, or spit up incident requiring a change of clothes for not only the baby, but likely whoever was holding him at that moment … that all sounds WAY to stressful to me & I’m not even the one who would have to be doing it! These are many of the reasons I prefer to come to you. There’s no need to make life more stressful than it needs to be. And most importantly, there’s something so meaningful about capturing some of your first family memories in the comfort of your own home & documenting your everyday life.
