I'm so excited that you have found yourself here! First off, congratulations! Becoming a parent is a huge milestone and one that deserves to be celebrated! Just as each pregnancy is different, every maternity session I shoot is unique. Bringing a new life into this world is hard work. While some expecting mothers feel a pregnancy "glow" and feel their best at this time, other mamas-to-be to be feel uncomfortable in their skin, or have a physically challenging journey. My number one goal is to make sure that the mother-to-be is comfortable, and feels truly beautiful because your pregnancy is the very beginning of a new chapter!
Adding a new member to the family is such an exciting time! Newborn photos are so important because your little one changes rapidly as they grow. My favorite part of newborn sessions is capturing those tiny details that you don't want to forget, like fingers, toes, and noses. Most photographers aim to shoot about 14 days after birth, but I'm a rule breaker. You can totally schedule a newborn session anytime within the first three months or so. Don't feel pressured to schedule before you feel ready (especially with COVID-19). With my newborn sessions I come prepared with several props for posed shots of just baby. I also love to document the new family with some lifestyle portraits!
