Doug and Kristen welcomed baby Everett (I am totally digging his name btw) in July. Everett joined his family that already included  three older fur siblings, making this an amazing in home lifestyle newborn session to photograph. The dogs loved their new little brother and followed him around the whole time I was in the home. This sweet baby boy loved to be snuggled and wasn’t a huge fan of being swaddled. This was a fun session for me to photograph, not only is family super sweet they have great dramatic light in the master bedroom, where most of Everett’s photos took place.

Welcome earth side Everett! I am so honored to have been able to capture the first “official” photos of this fun family.

I met this sweet family 17 months ago when I photographed their first baby boy Rowan. When they told me this spring they were expecting their second baby, I was thrilled for them. Last Monday we scheduled their beautiful river maternity session (blog to come) and its a good thing we did. Baby Driver joined his family earth side less than 24 hours later, I guess he was just super excited to meet his family a few weeks early.

I spent the day with Driver, his big brother, and parents photographing them in their home. Rowan and Driver’s nursery had the most beautiful light which was perfect for this in home session. A perfect mix between in home lifestyle and “The Minimalistic Newborn”. I love all of the macro details and curly womb like shots from this sweet newborn session.

I look forward to watching Rowan and Driver growing and capturing every milestone of these sweet brothers.

For all of you that follow my work on a regular bases, you know that I LOVE newborn photography. After a few years growing my newborn photography career, I thought I would share my story and how “The Minimalistic Newborn” was born.

I started dabbling in newborn photography while I was pregnant our fifth child back in 2012. I spent the next few years learning the basics of newborn photography, safety and posing. Fast forward to 2015 I knew something was lacking in my work, I didn’t feel like an artist. At one point I thought about not offering newborn photography, I wasn’t happy with photographing babies in buckets or props.  I knew I was drawn to timeless portraiture and simple posing. One night I decided to sell off my 99% of studio prop collection. I said goodbye to overstyled, over posed portraits and haven’t looked back. I now offer my clients in home sessions both a minimalistic style or lifestyle.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite newborn images.

The past two years I found my voice as an artist, even being featured in print and on some of my favorite photography forums. All while embracing the style I want my work to be, all while giving my clients beautiful heirloom artwork they would treasure for a lifetime. Turning my clients stories, into my art.

Over the past year, I have started teaching and sharing my passion of  minimalistic newborn photography to other photographers.  I love helping others find their voice as an artist, I am very excited for this new chapter to grow.

I would be honored to capture such a special time in your life. Contact me  today to start planning your custom newborn session.

Sweet Henry’s mother reached out wanting an in home newborn and family session, and I was thrilled. As much as I love my “Minimalistic Newborn” sessions, I have a soft spot for documentary lifestyle portraits. Little Henry at three weeks slept like a champ, I didn’t see his eyes but for just a moment the whole time I was there. There is something so magical photographing a family in their own home, it feels real and honest. My dream is for my clients to look back on their portraits and cherish those moments that I was able to freeze in time.

I am always so honored to be invited in to a clients home, while capturing such a special time in their lives. I am now booking into October with my family and newborn sessions. I do have a few more sessions available, and I would love to capture YOUR family.

If I was going to categorize my style for family sessions it would be a mix photojournalist and lifestyle. I love tons of negative space and close ups with non-tradiontal crops, images that tell a story and capture emotions.  I always have a few goals for each family session I photograph. My main goal is forgetting about posed family session and really capturing the in between moments of my clients lives. These are the moments I know my clients  will cherish long after their children are grown. I want my clients to look back on their session with fond memories and know we froze a moment in time.

This session was near and dear to me, as I have been photographing this family since the twins were one year old.  Baby sister was due any day, so we knew this was an extra special session as it was the last session as a family of four.  We knew that the beautiful apple orchard an early summer Vermont night would be the perfect backdrop for their family/maternity session.
