Capturing life’s entrance into the world is an intimate, raw, emotion-filled, incredible privilege. My goal with each birth session is to capture the entirety of the emotional experience of birth, and to give new parents a peaceful avenue in which to process labor and delivery. My hope is to leave new parents with pictures that remind them of every emotion they felt the day they saw their baby’s face for the first time, regardless of how or where their baby was brought into the world.
They’ve known for 9 months that a baby is soon to come, and the day is finally here! A new baby brings so much joy and excitement to the whole family, not just to mom and dad. Capturing those first moments where big brother’s eyes fill with tears as he meets little sister, where big sister’s fingers gently touch little brother’s downy hair, where siblings eyes lock for the first time is such an immense honor.
The first minutes of life look different for each baby. Meeting adoptive parents, first swaddle, first hat, first breastfeeding, footprints, weight, skin to skin, first outfit, quiet one-on-one time, and loud family celebration are such beautiful possibilities following the arrival of each little one. First Moments is a one hour session immediately following the birth of a baby; it captures the first hour of life with your newest family member.
In Home newborn
The first few weeks of life post-delivery are different type of birth- the birth of a mother, of a father, of a sibling. In Home Newborn sessions aim to capture that birth as fully as the birth of the baby. Siblings interacting, mom nursing and snuggling with baby, dad playing with kids. It’s a new era in a family’s existence, and it’s a beautiful thing to remember.
