Sweet Stella came to see me at 12 days old with her parents, who I had met a few weeks prior at their maternity session. It was so nice to photograph them now as a family of three- even doing some before and after baby images like this one!It’s never too early to book your newborn session! I highly recommend you contact me early in your third trimester to check availability and get started with the process. I love to create one-of-a-kind sessions for each of my clients, and planning begins early to suit your family and tell your story. If you decide to book a maternity session as well, we can style the sessions to create a seamless look so that your options are unlimited when creating an album or wall display!
I can’t believe how alert and awake this little sweetheart was! Newborn Tyson arrived a few weeks early, and at 8 days old did not want to miss a thing. He was very calm and curious, allowing for some beautiful ‘awake’ newborn images, not always possible at this young age. Tyson is signed up for my baby plan, and I’m sooooo looking forward to seeing him grow over the next year at his 6 and 12 month session!

Why maternity photography? Why document that time when your ankles swelled, acne raged, hair frizzed and you gained weight…. everywhere? You probably don’t feel well, you think you look tired and unattractive, you don’t have any nice clothing that fits. There are many reasons not to be photographed at this time. I know those were my reasons (all pretty superficial ones, don’t you think?).
What about the reason FOR doing it? Like, being able to look back at that time, when you carried your little one in your womb. In hindsight you will be able to see how everyone was right- you were glowing. There was a sparkle in your eye, a different beauty that is not always present. In the photos you can see your husband, or partner, looking at you in a way you’ve never noticed before. You see the womanly curves, and marvel at how amazing your body is – you created a life.
Photography is not for the present- it’s for the future. These moments are documented to remind you of times past. Photographs help tell your story, bring back those feelings, tastes, smells…. the good and the bad of your pregnancy. They help you remember. Your pregnancy is something that you’ll want to remember. To think back fondly on, even if you did have morning sickness for the entire 9 months, heartburn so badly that you couldn’t sleep, and ankles swollen so large even your shoes wouldn’t fit. Trust me, you’ll want to remember it all.
Jennifer is without a doubt basking in the pregnancy glow. Isn’t she gorgeous? She and Paul are due to welcome their first child- a girl, any day now. I’m looking forward to meeting her at her newborn photography session!

Some may worry that their child won’t behave for the photo session. Maybe they are shy, or teething, or don’t nap well and always seem cranky (< this is my daughter right here!). I assure you that even if your child is having an ‘off’ day, we will work with him or her and get some beautiful images.
I don’t book sessions back-to-back, so there is always extra time for play, a time-out, a walk outside to reset. I want your child’s time in the photography studio to be pleasant, if not totally fun! There is no pressure, lots of patience and as a last resort a resceduled appointment (This has never yet happened!).
Brynley may have been a bit tired, having a little tummy trouble, and be one to “never smile at the camera”. All considering I think the session was a success, as mom loved all of the images. I may not have been able to coax out a real smile, but some lovely expressions that are completely typical of her beautiful girl!!!
