Vermont newborn photographer / Quinton’s newborn session

The P family welcomed baby Quinton (loving his name btw) in early 2018. Quinton joined his family that already included  the most adorable big sister and brother, making this an amazing in home lifestyle newborn session to photograph. The big kids loved their new little brother and loved on him the whole time I was in their 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 but I have know Dad since childhood. It’s always extra special to photograph childhood friends and their families. To top off a wonderful session their home had the greatest dramatic light in the downstair bedroom, where most of Quinton photos took place.

Welcome earth side Quinton, you are so loved. I am  honored to have been able to capture the first “official” photos of this fun family.

 

I am still booking late spring into late summer newborn sessions. Contact me today to start planning your custom newborn session.

This sweet family of three turned into a family of four less than 24 hours after this session, so the timing was perfect.

I met the Gale family 18 month prior when Rowan was just a few days old and now he was ready to become a big brother. I think summer sessions at the river are my favorite, it’s the perfect backdrop for any portrait session. I always want my family sessions to be relaxed and fun, and the river gives us the perfect opportunity to do so. Rowan had a blast snuggling with his parents and throwing rocks.

Everett joined his family that already included  three older fur siblings, making this an amazing in home lifestyle newborn session to photograph.

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.

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.

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.

I can’t believe this family session has taken me so long to blog. This was my sixth family session with Oliver and his parents and this has to be my favorite to date. We spent a lovely Vermont summer evening down by the river, while Oliver played in the water, throwing rocks and snuggling with his mom.

I look forward to all of my upcoming summer family sessions. I still have a limited amount of summer sessions available open for June and August. If you are interested in booking my dates, feel free to contact for more information.

Vermont, New England, and NYC newborn photographer.

 

I traveled from snowy Vermont down to New York City for sweet Luna’s newborn session. Baby girl did not disappoint, she slept the whole time while swaddled and wide awake when not.  Big Brother B was wonderful with his new baby sister, and rocked his part of the session.

I loved every moment of this session and can’t wait to see Luna grow, until next time NYC.

Vermont Newborn Photographer

Newborn photography is something I am quite passionate about. In the beginning my style was very different. When I first started out, I would have very stylized sessions, and over time I noticed I was drawn as an artist to the simple photos of my newborn clients. This past year I have followed that path to simple more baby lead posing, a mix between lifestyle and studio portraiture. I took a leap of faith when it came to my business and work and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My small Vermont studio took on a full remodel, I sold off everything I had, and started with a clean slate. Walls were painted, setups were simplified with a mix between modern and timeless, and finally a new business name and website rolled out.

When Sophia’s mother contacted late summer to inquire about a possible newborn session, I knew from the moment we spoke we were a perfect match as photographer and client. She told me that she was really drawn to to the simple and timelessness of my studio newborn portraits. I am thrilled when clients say they “sought me out for my style” and they “completely trust me for my vision” for their newborn session. Sophia’s session was all about her infancy and parents, a time that any parent will tell you goes by in a blink of eye. I know Sophia’s parents will cherish her photos for years to come and will proudly display them in their home.
