In Home Newborn Session Details

Congratulations & Thank You For Your Interest!

There is no need to worry about bringing your newborn out in the cold, or getting yourself and your new family member ready to travel to a studio, as all of my newborn sessions are conducted in the comfort of your own home.  I bring my “studio” to your home…all you have to do to prepare for your session is have that beautiful newborn sleepy, with a full belly and I will do the rest!

What Will My Session Be Like?

Your in-home newborn session will typically begin with natural and safely posed images of your newborn.  Using organic natural tones and textures, I am honored to create timeless and beautiful images of your little one, all while you relax and look on adoringly.  I believe in creating artwork that highlights the incredible little details of your newborn, in a natural, baby-led approach to newborn photography.

Photographing in your home allows me to incorporate your life into your session, whether it be photographing those bonding moments in the nursery, introducing a pet to the new family member, or even allowing a sibling the opportunity to show off their new “big-brother/sister” capabilities!  My newborn sessions incorporate both natural, baby-led posed and life-style images for your gallery.

When Do Sessions Take Place & How Do We Book?

Your newborn will change so fast that you will not even believe it!  Since we want to capture babies at their calmest/sleepiest time, I typically prefer my sessions to take place during the first 2 weeks after their birth.  

Since it is never an exact science as to when your little one will arrive, your due date is placed into my calendar, so that I can have an idea as to how many newborns are scheduled for the month, as I only take a limited amount each month.  Within 24 hours of the birth, it is important for your to get in touch with me so that we can coordinate an exact date for your session.

What If My Nursery Isn’t Ready Or My House Is A Wreck?

That should be the least of your worries!  As a Mom myself, I know what it is like to balance a newborn, family time, dinners, housework and oh yeah, you just had a baby!!!  Rarely do I enter a house that is camera ready, but rest assured, your home will photograph beautifully no matter what…I am not afraid to move stuff out of the camera frame!  If you came to my house now, you’d have to move a pile of laundry…

What Should We Wear & What Do I Need To Have For The Newborn?

Once you have booked your session, I am happy to help you pick out the perfect outfit for you and your family.  As a general rule, I begin my session with the newborn images, so you will have plenty of time to get the rest of your family ready….and I am happy to help pick out what each of you wear.

As far as your newborn, I bring lots of beautiful neutral-toned wraps and blankets, as well as dainty headbands for girls.  All you would need to have ready is a sleepy, well-fed newborn…that’s it!  Maybe a bottle or pacifier if you choose.

What Do Your Sessions Include & What Is The Investment?

Investment is All-Inclusive $650 (plus NC Sales Tax).  My in home newborn sessions include 3-4 hour session in the comfort of your home, incorporating both natural, baby-led posed newborn images, as well as beautiful & authentic lifestyle images of your family.  Siblings and immediate family members are absolutely welcome!  Within 2 weeks of your session, you will be sent a private online viewing gallery with roughly 30+ watermarked images from your session.  From this gallery, you will download your fully retouched digital images, which will be provided to you with printing rights and lab recommendations (retail locations are NOT recommended as a printing source).  50% is due to secure your due date on our calendar, with the remaining balance due within 24 hours prior to your session.
