My goal is to capture life as it is right now, because it truly is fleeting. My own newborn photos are some of my most cherished treasures; my boys are now 5 and 3 and I love reliving these moments.
As I focus on a lifestyle aesthetic (and not posed images), anytime within the first few weeks following birth tends to work well for my newborn sessions. I would say my average newborn session is around the two-week mark. This is about the time that the new parents feel like they somewhat have the hang of things, but technically, "newborn" is any time between birth and three months old.
As for timing, we will want to schedule your session earlier in the morning; right after babe’s morning feeding. I've found the sweet spot is around 10a, as it is early enough that your little one is still relaxed and late enough that sunlight filters through your windows.
Newborn sessions are simply some of my favorites to photograph. Sweet faces. Tiny toes. Baby eyelashes. Real moments. So much love.
