with my 25 years behind a camera, and 3 years professionally I have found that I not only love Macro photography, but I really love “New Life” photography. What is New Life Photography you might ask? New Life Photography consists of Maternity, Birth, Fresh 48, Newborn, Breastfeeding, and Postpartum photography.
from announcing that you are pregnant in a fun and creative way, to the gender reveal of your bundle of joy with glitter or other creative unique ideas, to the Belly photos before your little one makes their grand entrance. The time during your pregnancy is special and unique to you, and something you will want to remember forever.
I will come to your birth and photograph before, during, and after the birth of your precious little one. I will spend time with you in the location you choose to have your little one, hospital, birth center, or home. I will quietly capture images of before, during, and after your birth at the level you are most comfortable with.
A birth Session can last from 3-8 hours or more and I limit myself to 6 births per year.
Fresh 48 Photography:
I come to you in the hospital within the first 48 hours of your precious little one being born. You call me as you head to the hospital to let me know you are on your way, and then you call me within the first 12-24 hours after the birth to let me know that your precious little one is here. I will show up at the hospital and take photos of you and your little one along with the family that is present as time allows. My focus though will be baby, parents, and siblings.
A fresh 48 session takes about an hour
you bring in your brand new little one to be photographed in my cozy studio between 3-21 days old, while you sit back and relax or even take a nap I will tenderly tend to your newborn while I take his/her photos. You will be able to choose 2 different backdrops for the bean bag portion of the session, and 2 props to use during your session too.
A Newborn Session normally lasts between 2-3 hours, as time and baby allows we can add a prop or background to the session. I do not promise that I can get every squishy pose that we try, everything depends on your precious little one.
I will capture the special bonding moments between you and baby that are so important, while you nurse your little one I will capture some of the tender moments that happen between mom and baby while breastfeeding, I will photograph breastfeeding at any age, newborn until you both decide you are done. Moms and babies decide to breastfeed until several different ages, I will only support your choice to breastfeed and never judge the age you decide to breastfeed to whether you go 1 day or 5 years.
Breastfeeding sessions are 1 hour-long.
Just for mom. It can be hard for a mom to feel beautiful in her skin again after having a baby, after having 4 of my own, I can understand how hard it is. My goal with postpartum photography is to show you that you are still beautiful, and you are not only a Mother, but you are still a beautiful Woman. You have earned every stretch mark, they are now your tiger stripes, and YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
Postpartum sessions normally last about 1-2 hours.
You can extend the length of any session for an additional charge, but shortening your sessions could limit the quality and content of your images.
