Let’s face it– having a newborn photographer take photos in your own home sounds a bit nerve wracking, right? You worry about the kids, whether the baby will be crying the whole time, and you worry about what you should wear.

I’m here to tell you that it’s OK. Relax, and enjoy the moment. I’m just a nearly silent observer, allowing your family to go about their usual routine, with just a few small nudges toward the light.

One of my favorite families opened up their home to me and allowed me to capture their sweet baby girl during her first few weeks of life. Lifestyle newborn sessions like these warm my heart.
