About the Session
We will start with your pre session creative consultation, we will discuss your color preferences, the style of your home and what makes your family unique. You will be able to view my props and my fine art painted backdrops so we can create together your dream session and beautiful images.
I promise to translate your vision into beautiful imagery. Each session is customized around your baby. No two sessions are alike. Your signature session will take about 3 to 4 hours in my studio in the Habersham town center which is fully equipped with your baby's safety and comfort in mind. We will work around your baby's feeding and take breaks as necessary. You will be sitting near your baby.
These last few years I have had the pleasure of being trained by the world's leading newborn photographers such as Kelly Brown from Australia, Amy McDaniel, Gabriella Soutine and Erin Elizabeth in the art of posing newborns safely in a calm environment.
Over the years I have continued to perfect my training with many workshops and one on one mentoring in the US as well as in France and in Sweden.
I have been photographing newborns for 7 years . Safety is always my number one priority and I am truly dedicated in taking the best possible photos in a safe manner, I strive to capture those magical moments to create fine art images to be treasured for years to come. I do not use poses that are not safe or uncomfortable for your baby.

1. When should I book?
I shoot a limited amount of newborn sessions each month to focus on quality and it is best to book as early as you can when you are expecting. We book for a day about a week after your due date and readjust that day if we need too if baby arrives earlier or later.
2. How old should my baby be for the session?
I prefer to photograph newborns at the age of 5 days to 2 weeks. This the time when your baby is curly and sleepy and it is easy for me to pose him or her. After the age of 3 weeks, the session is a lifestyle session with baby awake and not posed.
3. How should I prepare for my newborn session?
During your newborn session, you will be able to relax while I work my magic and see why parents call me the baby whisperer . I will let you know if I need your help for l a special pose or when your baby needs to eat. You will not need to bring clothing for your baby unless there is a special item you would like to use. I will provide props, wraps, bonnets and headbands.
4. Where is my session taking place?
Your session will take place in my studio located in the town center of Habersham in Beaufort, SC near the Broad River Bridge. I am located about 30 minutes form Bluffton and 45 minutes from Savannah. Occasionally weather permitting, I will take a few shots outside if that is something you would like.
I only allow parents and one grandparent in the studio for safety reasons. Siblings will be photographed at the beginning of the session. My studio is often the first place new parents bring their newborn and therefore safety and cleanliness are paramount.
5. Can I include my pet?
Of course, we can include your pet in some of the shots.
