What do you want to remember about the first days with your newborn?

Posed newborn photography is all the rave right now. And I get it. Newborns are so appealing and when they are wrapped and posed and looking perfect, they are irresistible.

I thought I wanted to offer posed newborn sessions. I took classes, learned techniques and bought the cutest hats, headbands and outfits. When I looked at the images, I felt I was missing something. Where was the connection of the newborn with parents and siblings? What did I want my images to mean to parents? I realized that I want parents to be able to look at my images and remember those first few chaotic, exhausting, blissful weeks. I want people to feel my images.

I recognize that there are many parents who want posed newborn images, and that’s okay. It’s just not for me. I can refer you to someone that can give you just the images you are looking for. But if you want images that show real connection and emotion between you and your newest family member, I’m the photographer for you!
