Newborn sessions are done in your home as a lifestyle session or as a studio session. I have everything you need for your session! Newborn sessions work best within the first 12 days of birth, however I also understand that things happen and you might not be able to do your session within that time frame.  I do not turn a newborn away based on age!  I am experienced in photographing older newborns as well.  Baby sessions are also done both in studio or outdoor! You also have the option to include both studio and outdoor in your session. Please contact me for more information about session details! 

As a mom I know how quickly these moments pass by. Not only do I want to capture your sweet, squishy new baby, but I want to capture the emotion and excitement that goes with it! Choosing a mix of posed and lifestyle sessions are a great way to do both.

Newborn & Baby Experience

There are a few things you can do to help your baby prepare for your newborn session.  Keeping your baby awake a couple hours before you come will help them be ready to sleep when They arrive at the studio. If you have a long drive I suggest  arriving a little bit early and feeding baby right before we start.  Please bring baby in a zip up sleeper that is easy to take off. That way, if baby is sleeping we won't disturb them as much.

2. What to bring

I have all the wraps and cute outfits, hair bows, props, etc. that we will need for your session. However, if you have something you would like to bring (a heirloom, blanket, nursery item, or outfit) please do! I also HIGHLY recommend bringing a pacifier for your baby (even if you don't plan on using on at home.) A pacifier is all I have to comfort your baby and it really helps your session go smoothly. 

I recommend mom and dad bring a neutral colored shirt and jeans for session.  I have dresses for mom as well! Please come dressed in cool comfy clothing though for the session. I keep my studio VERY warm for the baby and I do not want you to get overheated. 

3. what to wear

Each session is geared toward your preference in color and style! Please let me know what colors you like and if you are looking for a certain style. For example if you want more life-style or posed images.  The session is about YOU and your new baby and I want to do my best to create the perfect session. 

4. what to expect at your session

I love including family members in your session. When it comes to little siblings or fur babies, safety always comes first.  Sometimes siblings (usually 3 and under) aren't wanting to snuggle their new baby yet. Although I do my best to encourage the picture, I won't risk safety of baby if I feel like it is not going to work.   MOST of the time I am able to get all the images you are wanting.  Same for pets, As long as everyone is safe, I love including your fur babies as well. My goal is to create the best family portraits possible for you!

Say Hello

You just can’t go wrong with Andrea, she is great! Her personality, her set up, she’s quick and can capture just what you want! She did a wonderful job with my 4 month olds spring session I couldn’t have been more pleased. We will be back for more session for sure.

Andrea has been my favorite photographer for over ten years. She is always my go-to when I need my photos updated. She has always been ready to handle whatever I throw at her with the most ease. She is so talented. I cherish my son’s photos she took when he was little. I absolutely love the recent senior session that she did for my daughter. We have received so many compliments on them! Not only will my family continue going to her for our photos, she is the only photographer that I highly recommend to anyone.
