I always encourage potential clients to contact me early – and it sounds crazy, but it is best to contact me BEFORE the baby is born.  My schedule fills up fast and I prefer to photograph newborn babies within the first two weeks of life.  What I normally do, is hold a spot on my calendar 1 week after a client’s due date.  That way I am able to keep a little bit of wiggle room in my schedule because we all know babies rarely come on their due date.  So, if you’re pregnant and thinking about a photography session for your newborn, drop me a line… – or use the contact link at the top of this page.  And if baby is already here, don’t panic!  As you can see here, I can create beautiful portraits even from “older” newborns – this baby girl was 2 months old at the time of her portrait session.

Something was missing when the mother of these two beautiful newborn babies came into the studio.  I had everything all set up and ready to go, but it just didn’t feel right.  Twins should just *be* together.  But baby girl had a bit of work to do before she was allowed to leave the hospital.  Since we knew it was going to be more than a couple of days, I went ahead and photographed baby boy.  It wasn’t how I wanted to start a twin photography session, but he gave me a wink and a smile.  It was as if he was telling me “it’ll be alright” and indeed it was!  A week and a half later, baby girl was home and the two were back together – right where they belong!  Precious and sweet – she was worth the wait!
