Newborn Lifestyle Session

These precious moments, those first few days when everything is new, those little peely feet, the adorable baby grunts and gassy smiles. These are why I love Newborn Lifestyle sessions and why I specialize in in-home newborn sessions.

I truly believe that you need to be in the portraits with your little ones. They will want to see what mom and dad looked like back then. They will want to see their first home, their first room, that Dad had a beard or that mom had long hair. When they see the joy and love in your eyes in those portraits and your tender cuddles and kisses, they will cherish these moments beyond measure.

I capture Lifestyle Newborn photo sessions in the comfort of your home usually within 14 days of birth. I want to be sure to capture your new bundle of joy when they are still a curly, peely, snoozy little teeny babe and I find that between 7-10 days after birth is the perfect time.

I captured Atlas and his parents at 14 days old and he was an absolute sweetheart. (Atlas’ first sneak peek can be seen here)

All of my newborn sessions are relaxed and move at mom and baby’s pace. Although we do capture a couple of portraits where the family is looking at the camera my style really lends to capturing more of your story, the moments, the love and joy in your eyes, in your smile, the way that you hold and admire your new babe.

I will capture portraits of both parents (as well as siblings and fur babies if applicable.) This is a family session and I want to be sure to document every part of your immediate family.

I love seeing how each family has prepared baby’s nursery. I love the time, detail and dedication that is put into each part of the room. Sweet Atlas’ nursery was a beautiful serene and modern setting that was perfectly styled in whites, soft blues and muted tones.

Throughout our session we will move around the home and capture portraits in pockets of natural light and cozy spaces. Not sure if you have enough natural light? You would be surprised! We always discuss this during our email/phone consultation prior to our session.

I love capturing baby organically. To me that means capturing them as they are, sleeping, nursing, being held, sleeping in their crib, on the bed or in your arms. I will bring swaddling blankets, my trusty step stool and a magical noise machine to help capture all of these moments.

Within three weeks of our session we will get together at my cozy photography studio for your private gallery viewing and ordering appointment. We will enjoy some treats while you have the opportunity to view your custom hand edited gallery for the first time and select print products and heirlooms that will suit your family’s style and needs best.

It is truly an honour to be welcomed into families homes during such a precious and intimate time and I couldn’t feel more blessed.


I would love to capture a newborn photography session for your family. In order to provide each of my clients with a custom, high quality experience, I only accept a limited number of due dates each month. It is recommend to connect to reserve your due date at the beginning of your second trimester.
