I love being able to offer my clients the luxury of beautiful, posed studio-style newborn images from the comfort of their home.  For every newborn session, I pack up my meticulously curated travel studio and drive to my clients' homes to photograph their precious little bundle.  I have chosen to do this rather than forcing clients to pack up and come to me for a number of reasons.  There is less risk of exposure to illness by not having to take baby out into public. It also takes a lot of pressure off of clients to not have to worry about packing everything up and forgetting something or the baby falling asleep in the car and disrupting his or her sleep cycle.  I also love being able to relieve the parents from the pressure of having an entire family "photo ready" before they even lease their house for the session.  Many of my clients take some time to get themselves ready at home once I am already there and working with baby! 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!
