capture the beginning of your child's life

In addition to my maternity and Fresh 48 photography services, I can also take images of your child's early months of life. These newborn pictures can be part of your entire gallery or purchased separately. These are lifestyle photos of the newborn captured in a natural and lifestyle manner. 

I can also assist in suggesting ideas for outdoor family shots as well as different types of photos. Together we can help you create the perfect picture gallery to document the journey of your little one from pregnancy until after delivery. I want to make you feel comfortable. As a photographer in maternity-focused photos, I have the experience and enthusiasm to help create the images that you want. 

Meet & Greet

Working in sync with both other experiences, we will need to make sure we are the right fit for each other. This means we have the opportunity for a relaxed conversation where we both ask questions that are important to us. If we have already met and this is an add-on service, then you can skip to Step 4 as we will be ready to plan.




For those clients of mine that are looking exclusively at a Lifestyle-Newborn session and signing an agreement for the first time, this is when we will review pricing, included services, and the overall process of the planning and execution of your vision. When considering DRS as your newborn photographer, be sure to think of the fact that I am a lifestyle photographer for babies meaning that I prefer to not stage the child in outfits, but rather capture natural family engagements.



Now that we have committed to your lifestyle-newborn session, we will need to arrange a specific time to review the details of your photo shoot. As this is the most relaxed of all my photo sessions, the planning meeting for this shoot can be just as relaxed and is typically done after the delivery. Waiting until the baby arrives allows for quite a few benefits, but most importantly it allows your son or daughter to acclimate to his or her new home and family members.


Planning Meeting

This meeting is where we will plan out the photo session's details including your general vision, preferred angles, room decór, imagery textures, and more. This meeting can occur either in-person or via videoconferencing and should take approximately 30-60 minutes. The platforms I currently use for videoconferencing include FaceTime, Google Hangout, and Skype. 


Picture Day

This photoshoot is a magical time that should be relaxed, comfortable, and natural. I encourage inviting family members and close friends to be around one another caught up in conversation which adds to the warmth of this memory. I focus on your baby the entire time including sleeping, feeding, and interactions with everyone else in attendance. This session usually takes a couple of hours and is a heart-warming way to add to your child's photo collection.


photo reveal

After the newborn photo session is over, we will arrange a time to get together to hand you your lifestyle-newborn photography collection. The pictures of that day will forever remind you of how little your little one really was in the beginning. Besides the photo collection being given to you, there are upgrades of beautiful photo albums and custom wall art that can be added on. The photo reveal can occur either in-person or videoconferencing as usual.

So amazing that you captured him smiling -- we've had so many comments already that this photo is beautiful.
