As a new mom or dad, you need something easy, so let me come to you! For any newborn session, I highly recommend taking these portraits during the first 10 days - 3 weeks of the new baby's life. The home newborn session is more of a lifestyle session - you and your family in the comfort of your own home. I will be sure to capture your little peanut in their nursery, with siblings, with the family dog, etc! I recommend this type of session for the family that doesn't need all of the perfectly posed photos of their newborn.
Let's face it - the first year of your baby's life is insane! Your baby is constantly changing and learning new skills, like smiling, laughing, waving, and everything in between! The sitter session is for babies 6-9 months of age that are sitting up (get it?) but not quite crawling around or super mobile yet. I have plenty of cute props and baskets and it's easiest to do the session in your home so you can capture your baby in their environment - outside works too!
You've made it through the first year - congratulations! What a wild ride it has likely been. TIME TO EAT CAKE. Well, watch your baby eat cake. It's going to be the cutest, messiest, and most adorable thirty minutes of your life. I like to do the cake smash sessions at my in-home studio so I can have everything ready to go for you (and you don't need to worry about cleaning up after!). All you need to bring is your baby and the smash cake! I have plenty of cute props, baskets, cake stands, and outfits for you to use during the session at no additional cost. Ideally the session will take place during the baby's 11th month (and prior to their actual birthday), so I can make sure to get the images to you by the big day!
