I aim to capture your newborn as they are; the way they curl up, or stretch out. The way they yawn or cry. The way they are learning to move their limbs. The way older siblings react to their new brother or sister. The way you love them. The session is baby-led, so there is minimal posing involved, and whether done in the couple of days after your baby's birth, or at home once you have had a chance to settle in, your session is sure to create memories that will last forever.
You can choose from the following session types:
Fresh 48 sessions
A Fresh 48 session is done within the first two days of your baby's birth to document their first days of life. This session can be done in the hospital, birthing center, or at your home, and can include siblings. This session is perfect for you if you desire photos of your newborn, capturing those very first moments, but prefer to keep the labor and delivery private.
Fresh 48 "Locally Grown" sessions - CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE DUE TO COVID-19
These sessions are available exclusively at the St. Cloud hospital, and are an express version of the standard Fresh 48 session.
In-Home Newborn Lifestyle sessions
A lifestyle session is done in your home within the first month of your baby's birth, and the images captured are much more natural and relaxed as opposed to a typical posed newborn session. The session can include your newborn only, or with siblings, parents and grandparents, whatever you prefer.
Please Note: As a birth and newborn photographer, I take your baby's safety very seriously. During your session, you will be the one handling your newborn. I do not need to hold or touch your baby, and I will even ask permission if I need to adjust a blanket or piece of clothing.
