Congratulations!! Let me guess…. you‘ve had a secret Pinterest board for the nursery ever since you found out right! Or was that just me?

 

Now it’s all coming together but every photographer you find is putting costumes on babies and posing them in baskets and while cute, that’s just not your style right? As a South Florida newborn photographer, I specialize in light and bright at-home lifestyle photo sessions in your nursery.

 

Capturing all the special memories when you finally get to see your dream come to life! These photos will tell the story of the next chapter in your life and you deserve great images.

Q & A

 

Q: WORRIED ABOUT WHAT TO WEAR?

A: No problem I’ve got you covered with a What to Wear Guide plus tons of Pinterest inspiration for you and the whole family!

 

Q: AFRAID THAT YOUR HOUSE MIGHT BE TOO DARK?

A: Don’t stress I always bring extra flashes with me to each of my sessions and determine once I’m there if we need it or not. You’d be surprised how often we don’t need it! Plus when we do I’ll make it look just like natural sunlight so you won’t be able to tell. If you’ve looked through my website I guarantee you’ve seen images with extra lighting but you didn't even realize it!

 

Q: WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?

A: Yes, siblings and of course Dad are always included in sessions. Even the furry siblings are 100% welcome in the photos! I’ve got several videos on my IGTV talking about siblings and pets if you want to check them out.

 

Q: what if I have multiple outfits for the baby to wear?

A: I recommend sticking with a white onesie and a swaddle blanket or knotted gown only for your session. I find that when you are changing the baby multiple times they get upset and we aren't able to get the photos we want. By sticking with the list above we are able to get the timeless classic images you see in my portfolio.
