I love being able to offer my clients beautiful, posed studio-style newborn images from the comfort of their home.  I have found that in-home sessions work well for a number of reasons.  There is less risk of exposure to illness,  you don't have to worry about packing everything up or your baby falling asleep in the car and disrupting his or her sleep cycle, plus we can use elements of your home to incorporate in images to make them that much more personal and special.  Additionally, in-home sessions tend to be easier on older siblings who are free to go play while I wrap, pose, and settle baby, and then we can call them in for just the shots needed so they won't be bored waiting around.  In-home sessions are also so nice on parents who can truly relax in comfort in their own home while I take care of the little details.  I bring wraps, some newborn outfits, posing pillows, blankets, and more!  These sessions usually take place within the first 5-15 days of life and last between 2 and 3 hours.  We will take our time with as many breaks as baby needs for feedings, diaper changes, etc.  I make sure to get close-ups and sweet details of your perfect little bundle, plus photos with each parents, both parents, siblings (if applicable), and the full family with baby.  Click HERE to contact me or book your newborn session!
