When you hear that this time in your life goes quickly, you have NO idea until you live it. You will blink and your baby is headed to kindergarten. You will one thousand percent love having these photos to look back on, especially because YOU are in them. Get in front of that camera, mama, your children deserve to see you in these memories!
An in home lifestyle session
This session can be two+ hours, as newborns tend to get hungry!! Your little one will run the show - we will stop whenever needed to feed/change/comfort him or her to make sure this is a good experience for everyone. I want this to be as stress free as possible for you, because you just had a baby and are dealing with a lot right now. I can totally relate, so do not worry that you're on the clock as soon as I arrive. We will capture your little one with each family member and get some solo shots as well. I usually do those on the parent's bed or a cool chair, and sometimes in his/her crib. A lot will depend on the best natural light source in the house. It is best to do photos in a room with fairly neutral colored walls and a good window(s) with natural light pouring in.
All edited digital files are included via an online private gallery, along with a print release. You can expect 75 images in your gallery, with a combination of color and black and white images.
I offer timeless, authentic images. I do not go by the current trends with composition, props, or editing, etc. My dream is for these photos to be seen for generations and I want you to trust your family's legacy in my hands.
I suggest doing your in home newborn session in the first two weeks of the baby being born. This is just because in most cases, this is when the baby will be most sleepy and cooperative. I totally understand that recovery varies from mother to mother, so we may need to wait a little longer until you are feeling ready. We will always discuss what will work best for you and make you feel best in this experience!
A first year collection
If you are looking to document your baby's first year of life, this is the collection for you. This collection includes an in home newborn session and six mini sessions throughout the first year of your baby's life. The six mini sessions are 30 minutes in length and can be scheduled when you'd like them.
An example of a first year sequence could be:
Newborn, 2 mo, 4 mo, 6 mo, 8 mo, 10 mo, and one year
Babies grow SO much in the first year and I'd love to document as much as I can of that for you. Since the majority of this collection involves short mini sessions, I offer this collection to those within 40 miles of New Fairfield. If you are out of that range and still want to do this collection, we will discuss travel fees.
All edited digital files are included as well as a Legacy Book to house your irreplaceable memories. A maternity session can also be added to this collection at a discounted rate. Contact me for more details!
