While I do not offer the traditional posed style of newborn photography, I love capturing candids of parents and babies at my studio or your home! (Traditional posed newborn photography requires a session that is a few hours and an expertise in newborn posing safety.)
Generally newborn sessions are scheduled in the first 10 days of your little one’s birth. Though later is okay too! They're just a little less sleepy. Sessions are always planned for daytime hours to ensure that the best possible natural lighting is available.
I'll photograph a combination of your sweet baby alone and with loved ones - including you, as parents, and any siblings.
These sessions are relaxed and unhurried. We’ll take your baby's lead on what they need, so that there is time for feeding & changing breaks and nothing feels rushed.
After your session, I will deliver your photos via an online gallery within 2-4 weeks of your session date. Thank you so much in advance for your patience in this process! I take my time handpicking and fine tuning each and every image so that every photo you receive will be up to my standards.
To print your photos, you can easily order professional quality prints, albums and gifts right from your online gallery! My sessions always include a print release which means you are welcome to print your photos as many times as you'd like, wherever you'd like, for your personal use.
I'm a strong believer that you are beautiful just the way you are! For this reason, I will not use extensive photoshop to make alterations on body shape, sizes. However, I do personally edit each and every image to enhance the beauty that's already there, and will retouch anything that would not normally be there (like a skin blemish, bruise, etc.)
Yes! I know choosing outfits can be stressful and I truly want to make this experience as stress-free as possible for you! Upon booking, I will send over a what-to-wear guide to help ease any outfit related stress. However, I wouldn't stress too much about it -- it's your connection we're really after!
Yes! My studio space is located in Duluth. It has white walls, simple furniture and beautiful natural light for photos! This is an option for any session (not just the 30 minute studio sessions).
I’m currently offering mini sessions on a few select dates each year! These sessions are just what they sound like — mini versions of my full sessions. They are 20 minutes in length, include a small batch of photos and come at a discounted rate. I choose the locations for these ahead of time, based on what’s best for the season! (If you prefer to choose your own location, one of my lifestyle sessions may be a better choice for you.)
