In the comfort and intimate setting of your home. In a space that naturally evokes togetherness and safety. Newborn Photography that doesn’t need a lot of room, just thoughtfulness, an eye for light.
I get to marvel in the closeness of siblings. I can sympathetically smile when a disheveled dad opens the door to greet me. I can take my time to wait for cozy nursing sessions and I will photograph that too–there’s so much good life energy in the act of nursing.
Family members come in and out. There’s food in the kitchen, it’s yours. I ask for, and love the stack of swaddling blankets and precious family linens that I get to work with. Yes, I bring my own supplies too, but how warm and tender are the things that belong to you?! Right! The fabrics that you grab out of the dryer or off the foot of the bed to comfort your baby with.
As I work, mom and dad can wrangle the other children, or read the paper, walk the dog, or just get a chance to sit and watch. Most of my clients sit and watch, they are quiet-maybe half asleep! But it’s so comfortable, because there is no expectations. You can be in your pajamas if you like! Let me capture the mood, the wonder, & love of this completely unique point in time.
