natural and Relaxed Newborn sessions in the comfort of your home

You’re going to have a baby, congrats! And now you’re thinking that’d it be nice to have newborn photos done but aren’t sure what to expect. Well, it’s really quite simple actually:

Newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your home. I travel to you, no need to pack the diaper bag, worry about timing out feedings, or bring extra clothes in case of accidents. Relax, you just had a baby which can be overwhelming at first! I bring everything for the session including props so there’s no need to scour Etsy looking for headbands, wraps, etc. All you need to do is feed your baby right before I get there and have yourself and any others who will be part of the session ready to go. I’ll do the rest.

Newborn sessions typically last 2 hours or so depending on the baby. Feedings, diaper changes, and snuggling are all part of the process. There is no need to stress about any of that. I adjust each session to the pace of the baby.

It’s important to contact me prior to having your baby so I can get you on my schedule. I only schedule a limited number of newborn sessions a month so to ensure availability, 1-2 months in advance is recommended. Plus scheduling in advance gives us an opportunity to discuss the vision for the session, get to know one another, ask questions and go over the process. Once baby is born we’ll schedule the session within three weeks of birth if possible. If your baby is already here and you’ve decided you want newborn photos please contact me anyway as I may have availability depending on my schedule.

I have a natural, simplistic approach to my newborn sessions. I don’t use a ton of props and I don’t do complicated or unnatural poses (i.e. photoshopped compositions). I focus on capturing your new baby exactly how he or she is—tiny, pure, sweet and perfect. But more than that, I try to tell the emotional story of how your precious new baby fits into your life now.

Lauren W. – Middlebury, CT

[testi_pane name="-Lauren W.," position="Middlebury, CT"] Katie is flexible to work with and has a natural gift of making people feel comfortable. Her easygoing yet focused personality helps to capture her clients feeling their best. This is easily shown through her photos. When our daughter arrived, Katie was there to capture all the sweet moments. My husband and I knew we wanted to remember all the tininess that comes along with a newborn. Katie knew how to photograph our daughter without using distracting props. Being first time parents, you don't always feel confident but, Katie made sure we were comfortable.Her clients are truly the main focus of her photos. Because of her beautiful work, we will be able to look back on this very special time in our lives. There is no greater gift of being able to remember what life was like during a time that goes by so quickly. [/testi_pane]

[testi_pane name="-Michaela C.," position="Fairfield, CT"]Being in our own home for our Newborn session made it so easy so soon after having a baby. During the session our little girl kept waking up and Katie was so patient and laid back. She took her time and I never felt rushed or stressed to have the baby conform to what we wanted her to be doing. As a first time mom I really appreciated not feeling pressured.[/testi_pane]

Lindsay V.

[testi_pane name="-Lindsay V.," position="Milford, CT"]Katie is extremely creative, and makes her sessions fun and relaxed, which shows in her pictures! She is very flexible and professional, and was particularly patient while dealing with an uncooperative baby, stopping at nothing to get the perfect shot for us! With a newborn session, Katie highly recommends family portraits, which after having a baby, I did not feel ready for, but I am so glad she convinced me otherwise! My favorite photographs from our session were the family shots! Very intimate and natural and really portrayed the love we have for our son! I will cherish these pictures forever! Looking forward to using Katie again in the future, as our family grows![/testi_pane]
