My absolute favorite thing about my approach to newborn sessions is that we don’t have to shoot them right away! There is flexibility and that is a word that I love to extend because I’ve been there – twice now!! Postpartum is no joke. Mama and babies often times need a few extra days/weeks to settle into life at home. Dear New Mama, give yourself a break. You just had a baby! That’s right – congratulations! Sleep whenever they sleep, and allow yourself to bounce back from what your body just accomplished…

      PERFECT EXAMPLE:
      Sweet Baby Dominic! He’s about a month old in these photos and I love it. Scroll down…

      SIDE NOTE:
      Don’t overlook those hospital photos, better known as Fresh 48 Sessions. Newborn images (with parents, siblings, etc. IN THE FRAME) that document the true first few hours and days… you’ll never regret an investment like that. Do I offer them? Yep. I believe that much in their importance.

      So, baby Dominic… one month in and as perfect as they come in his little white onesie. (Nothing lets baby rolls shine like the plain white onesie.) Cute and cosy in his new world and in the arms of his mama and daddy. He is loved by two amazing people. His future is a bright one – I just know it!
