for your newborn session, your baby's comfort is our priority. we want that just-fed, dreamy nap state, so we take our time getting them (and you) situated. your little one will be the star of the show, but we also like to sneak a few images of mom or dad or any siblings. the pace for newborn shoots is gentle and slow to accommodate anything that might come up throughout the day. it's a moment to relax and soak up your little miracle.
is there anything better than those milk drunk naps or their tiny little yawns? during those first weeks, they are changing each and every day. what a treat it is to capture such a fleeting moment in time. we couldn't be any happier than we are, capturing these moments of new life.
