"Sometimes the smallest things

take up the most room in your heart."

~ Winnie The Pooh

Nothing can prepare you for how much you're going to fall in love with your new baby. And although it's hard to see through tired eyes, your new baby is growing and changing every minute. I would love to provide you with beautiful, timeless images of you and your new baby that will be enjoyed for generations to come. 

Professionally trained by newborn photography instructors and neonatal nurses to work with newborns, I have learned how to safely handle and pose your little one while using creative ideas for artistic imagery.  To date, I have photographed over 400 beautiful Kootenay newborns! Though I am trained to safely pose your baby, my favorite poses to put your baby in are positions that they are naturally more comfortable in. All sessions are baby-led, meaning that they are the boss and I follow their lead.

Typically, posed newborn sessions are best held within the first 14 days of birth. The idea of doing this so soon after birth might sound a little daunting with your sleepless nights, but it's so worth it!! We want to capture the newness of your baby while they are still super sleepy, and because their bones are still soft, they are still comfortable in cute curly poses. Older babies don't enjoy being fussed with when they are sleeping, which makes posing difficult and as a result, there will be less variety in your images. When at the studio, you can relax comfortably with a book, wifi, take a snooze (you wouldn't be the first!), or bring along a board/card game and peek over from time to time to see your baby being photographed comfortably from the sitting room. 

Everything for your newborn shoot is provided, but please feel free to bring any special items that you would like to incorporate into your images such as a special blanket or a family heirloom. My fave style for newborn photos is super simple. The fewer props/distractions from baby, the better! (See some sample images below or check out my Instagram page for updated photos!)

When your baby is born, please notify the studio as soon as possible to be guaranteed availability during your baby's prime time! You will be sent a helpful sheet on how to prepare, what to pack, what to wear and what to expect of your newborn shoot and we will go over colour options for your baby's photos.
