Our photographers are experts in learning your style and your desires so that the end result is perfectly captured details that you’ll treasure long after the memory of birth fades. Whether you birth at home, hospital or birth center.

Whether you’re induced, epidural-free, or having a Cesarean birth.

Whether you want images of the support, the actual birth, or the precious hour after.

Our photographers know how to capture every moment tastefully and beautifully.

They are accustomed to working with all types of birth teams and experiences and will integrate seamlessly with your partner, your doula, your nurses, and your care providers, blending into the background, no matter the scenario.

Parents are always in awe of how quickly their babies change after birth. A fresh 48 session is a set of photos taken in the first two days of life and a beautiful way to capture your newborn’s unique features that will begin to fade soon after. This one-hour lifestyle photography session will perfectly preserve the memories of exhaustion and elation that come with new life.

Newborn photography sessions are another great way to preserve the early days of your new baby or babies. Your session will take place in the first two weeks of life and involves a combination of Pinterest-worthy posed pictures and lifestyle photography incorporating your whole family.

Your photographer will spend an hour to a few hours in your home, working around your routines and your baby’s needs, pausing for diaper changes, feeding, and all the other surprises that come with a new baby.

Our photographers will never ask you to change your feeding plans to achieve the sleepy look; we will always take our time and make sure we capture the moments in a fun and relaxed way.

And More!

Our photographers are skilled in family and lifestyle photography. They do amazing work with sex (gender) reveals, cake smash photo shoots, first birthdays, monthly milestones, breastfeeding sessions, bottle feeding sessions, family photos. If it involves you and your baby, we can put something together to meet your needs!
