When you are years removed from those bleary newborn days, the images you'll treasure the most are the ones that reflect your ordinary days.

How do I know? 

Because I've been there, and I still desperately yearn for more REAL images of our newborn days. 

Let's welcome baby home

You just experienced a HUGE shift. The newborn days are a beautiful whirlwind, and I'll document the raw beauty for you to revisit over and over again.

I observe your moments - the chaos, the mess, the loud screeches, and contagious giggles - gather them up like trinkets in a pre-schooler's pocket (IYKYK), and present these unforgettable moments to you as nostalgic, emotional imagery that feels like you. 

Your family will never be the same as it is at this exact moment. 

Release all expectations of creating perfect newborn portraits.

We are going for something much more valuable here. 

Just think...

I loved how natural everything felt! Ellen did an amazing job working with my busy toddler and was so nice and patient!! We loved her natural mom presence and understanding of life with young children and getting them to cooperate. 

"The session was amazing. She is worth every penny!"

in-home newborn sessions

Using an approach that is known in the photography industry as baby-led posing, your baby will be in your arms or on a safe, supervised surface (like a bassinet or a bed) in positions that are natural and comfortable for them.  

Baby details - like her dimpled fingers and hair swirl - are documented in the midst of your ordinary interactions. Siblings are patiently and safely guided during sibling photos. Your home is enveloped with an air of love and support as I spend up to two hours documenting your baby's early days. 

I  typically bring organic cotton solid bodysuits in solid colors, a bassinet, neutral swaddles, and a portable sound machine to newborn sessions. That's it - no beanbags, buckets, backdrops or perfectly styled rooms needed, just your loving home. 

Relaxed and organic. 

From thoughtful session planning with your family's story in mind to styling guidance for the whole family and a unique, in-the-moment approach that documents you authentically, I believe in creating with your family as the inspiration. 

Creative Direction

Document your baby's entire first year - maternity to one year - with the Session Collective.

Collective clients enjoy the option for weekend session scheduling, complimentary prints, and discounted artwork. 

I take a limited number of clients per month to ensure I have ample flexibility to adjust our session date within the ideal 10-20 day old window.
