I never tire of seeing the love and awe in parents' eyes as they gaze at their brand new baby! Many of the images we create during your newborn session will focus on the growing connection between family members. These photos will one day remind you not just what your newborn looked like but also what it felt like to hold him or her in your arms.
In addition to family snuggles, your newborn session will also include plenty of portraits of baby alone, so you can remember all those fleeting details! I describe my style as baby-led posing; I will guide baby into natural positions but always follow their cues. To keep the focus on your new little one, I opt for simple neutral wraps rather than elaborate props and setups.
I loved working with Brittany for our newborn photoshoot for my daughter. She was easy to work with, thorough, KIND (important postpartum!), and she is so talented. We are IN LOVE with our photos of our baby. She was wonderful with our shy and cranky two year old as well. I completely recommend using Brittany, We are so happy we went with her!
Ordering products was a breeze! Brittany helped us make final decisions on which photos to use for our album and which family portrait to frame. She was sooo patient, and provided her honest and professional opinion without being pushy which was so refreshing. We received our products this week and they were PERFECT! Amazing quality!
Brittany was incredibly understanding and flexible! She’s a mom and completely relates to it all. Our images reflect our experience - beautiful, loving and a great moment in time. I love seeing the images of my newborn, whom she spent 20 minutes rocking to sleep. She is a one-of-a kind photographer and I HIGHLY recommend her.
Finding Brittany was the best thing that could’ve happened! She provided a beautiful wardrobe for my family to wear, that I selected from samples. On the day of the shoot she was kind, warm and professional. She was also super patient when we had to stop for me to nurse and truly gave me all the time I needed.
I was a little hesitant to do a maternity shoot, but because I knew it was a memory I would want to keep, I decided to just do it and I am SO glad I did. Brittany made me feel so comfortable and offered dress choices that she knew would be my style. During the shoot she helped me to look my best in the most natural way, and the photos came out so beautifully, she captured a “glow” I didn’t even realise I had!
I recommend photographing newborns within the first 10 days of life. Not only does this allow us to document them at their very newest, but they are typically most sleepy and easy to settle in those early weeks. But if your newborn is already older, don't fret, anytime is a great time to photograph your baby! Just get in touch with me asap.
All newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your home. A lot of clients are afraid that their home is too small - don't worry, I'm used to it! I will ask you to send me photos or video of your home ahead of time so I can bring the right equipment and be prepared to best utilize your space.
Don't worry, I get it! Your first is used to being your only and might have trouble adjusting to their new sibling...or perhaps they have better things to do than sit for photos! My best advice for parents is to relax, snuggle your babies, and leave the directions to me. My goal is for your older ones to think of me as a nice lady with a camera who came over for a playdate :)
I call my style baby-led. I aim to create certain types of images, but when it comes to specific poses, I always follow baby's cues. I will guide and soothe, but will never put your baby in a position they wouldn't find on their own. The most beautiful images are often created by baby, and I'm just there to document!
I will bring everything baby needs to wear during the session (I actually provide wardrobe for the whole family if you wish). White or neutral wraps and simple white onesies keep the focus on baby. I'm also happy to incorporate family heirlooms or special gifts, like a bonnet worn by mom or a hand-knit blanket from Grandma.
