Documentary Newborn Sessions


Documenting your new life

The first time I walked my daughter into her bedroom, I was completely overcome.

I had created an entire human being and now somehow I was also responsible for creating an entire life for her! She relied on me for every one of her most basic needs, and I was struck by the enormity of it. I vividly remember fumbling with diaper changes, struggling with dressing and bathing her, learning how to feed her and read all of her cues...

What I don't remember?

The tiny creases in her feet and neck. The way her head must have fit into the palm of my hands. Whether her shoulders were fuzzy like the babies I see and document regularly, or whether the only hair she had was the little bit on the nape of her neck. All those fresh details that fade so quickly, and which we can (understandably!) forget to document in our postpartum haze, and which our cell phones and spouses try to but just can't /quite/ capture.

That's where I come in.

What's Included

My Time

When you book a Newborn session with me I am committing to being available for you within two weeks of being notified of your baby's birth.

After arriving at the agreed upon time, I will spend as much time needed to document those fleeting moments for your new family. Every session runs according to yours and your baby's needs, but typically these sessions last between 1-3 hours, at which point I leave you to continue soaking in those early baby days.

Your Memories

Every Documentary Newborn session includes a personalized online gallery bursting with beautiful, professionally edited, heirloom quality digital images. These images are yours to download and share as you'd like, and, as always, you receive a print release with your session.

The number and type of images included in these galleries will vary from family to family, but typically these sessions yield a minimum of 75 images.
