You bring it all...to me!?
Congratulations! I am so excited you're here considering me to photograph your precious bundle of joy.
You may be asking, what is a mobile newborn studio?
I do it all in your home!
That's right, no going out of the house mama. I have developed a unique system to allow me to photograph your newborn in your own house. Have a small space? No problem! I bring absolutely everything needed for your session.
Some of my favorite things for newborn sessions are my super soft, luxury knits and wraps. These pair so well with some of my vintage items, and backdrop choices for your session.
Siblings get bored so quick, so because they are in their own space and home, they have everything available to them. Their own toys and snacks and their bed if they need to nap. This goes for fathers too. Do you know how many times parents (mostly dads) have fallen asleep on the floor during my newborn sessions?
Newborn sessions can be a very long process! I totally believe you should be in the comfort of your own home. With your own food and snacks cuddled up on the couch in sweatpants, not worrying about what outfit to put on.
Laid back and stress free
When I had my baby girl, I wish I had a mobile newborn photographer available to me! All the newborns I photograph are pretty much spoiled by me and treated with the utmost care and gentleness. I have taken many newborn courses, workshops and safety classes to ensure your newborn is getting the BEST!
Taking your new baby out of the house is super stressful (At least it was for me!) The panic of driving with them, worrying about the weather, and not to mention having to remember to pack everything they need. I love that everything you need is with you in your home, and you can get ready while I work with your newborn. I like the sessions to be super laid back and stress free!

How do you sanitize your newborn props?
I frequently get asked how I sanitize my props, wraps, bonnets etc.
So here’s a little info!
-I am a traveling photographer, so there is no need to bring your babe out of the comfort of your house.
-Everything comes sanitized and ready for use for your babe upon my arrival!
-After each session, my delicate items are soaked in a mixture of free and clear, and a laundry sanitizer. (Did you know JUST washing your items WONT sanitize them? That’s why I use the laundry sanitizer!)
-Any other items such as fabric drops, and under layers are thrown in the wash with free and clear and the laundry sanitizer as well.
-Fabric items are either dried on high temperature, or if they are delicate- they are hung and air dried.
-Props such as bowls, buckets, trenches and crates are sprayed or wiped with Lysol wipes and THEN steamed.
-If I have my assistant (A nurse) coming with me, I make sure to ask that she has not been sick within a month- to be able to attend a session with me.
During my sessions, its totally dependent on how long I have to take settling and posing your baby.
I am usually able to create a beautiful gallery during the session depending on how settled the baby is! If a baby is not settled during the session, I still manage to create a full gallery under the circumstances.
What happens if my baby is fussy?
I'm well skilled in soothing babies, and have many, many tricks up my sleeve. In fact, many of my newborn clients have taken a lot of soothing advice from me, and use my techniques to this day!
When should I book my newborn session?
Its extremely important to book early in your pregnancy to ensure I have availability. I book up super fast, and prefer a little time getting to know my maternity and newborn clientele!
