From your gorgeous maternity glow to the sweet, plump cheeks of your newborn, I'm here to capture your most cherished family moments. The days may seem long but the years fly by, and your photographs will be lasting keepsakes to treasure for years to come.
These sessions are so much fun!! You'll enjoy music, coffee, and several dresses and gowns available for your session (Pst...you're welcome to use more than one!) We can do the session outdoors or in the comfort of my studio. I'm here to make you feel comfortable and beautiful during and after your session. Most Mama's like to come in between 30-35 weeks pregnant. Family is welcome as well!
Due to family responsibilities and having littles at home that need my attention, at this time I am only booking scheduled C-sections and inducements. I will not be able to book any spontaneous labors/births.
This plan includes photos of labor and delivery, as well as those precious first moments with Mommy and Daddy. I am with you from start to finish! No time limits! I am very careful to give you your privacy and make you feel 100% comfortable!! You will NOT regret having your birth story captured!
All Newborn sessions take place in my studio, (unless outdoor is requested) and all sessions will be delivered on an online gallery. Newborn sessions are very relaxed with drinks, snacks and music. I also have a playroom for siblings to keep them happy and entertained when they are not needed in the photos. I have outfits for baby and serval choices of clothing for mom to wear also! I am certified in Newborn Photography and have schooling on newborn safety.
Up to a 3 hour session. Includes parents and siblings. Edited digital images available for download with 16x20 hanging canvas of the photo of your choice!
A 2-3 hour session. Includes parents and siblings along with solo images of the baby. Edited digital images available for download.
Up to a 1 hour session. Includes photos of baby only. 10+ edited digital images available for download.
"I was lucky enough to have Laura do my maternity, labor & delivery, and newborn session. Every time- she went above and beyond. She is more than just a photographer, she cares about your comfort and values your input. Not to mention her work is fabulous! I would not go anywhere else! I highly recommend her and plan to keep seeing her in the future!"
"She makes sure you and your family are comfortable. I loved watching her work with my baby, very kind and gentle and you can tell she loves what she does. Her maternity closet is full of beautiful dresses/outfits and she has the cutest newborn outfits as well. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!"
She spent well over 3 hours with us capturing the perfect newborn session with our daughter 2 years ago. About 6 months ago she spent well over 20 hours in the delivery room to photograph our son entering this world. The moments she has captured still take my breath away and bring tears to my eyes.
"We decided to have our birth photographed to be able to look back one day. I’m so glad I was able to meet Laura to have her capture these moments for us. Thanks for capturing these emotionally-filled, once-in-a-lifetime photos. We are forever grateful. Highly recommend our whole experience was amazing!"
"Laura is an incredibly kind person with an amazing talent of capturing the most precious moments! She was there during my labor and delivery that ended in a c-section. During the c-section I wasn’t able to see much at all. I'm incredibly thankful for Laura being there to capture his first moments in this world!"
Typically we want to get that sweet baby in the studio with-in the first 2 weeks. They are nice and sleepy and usually able to be posed easily.
Absolutely, yes! We definitely understand that life can get in the way and things may not work out to get baby in right away. I have worked with babies of all ages. If you have an older newborn, feel free to reach out to me for more information on what to expect for your session!
Honestly, whenever you want! We want to make sure you are comfortable and have fun during your session. Typically, most Mama's book between 30-34 weeks pregnant.
Ah, the hardest part of planning photos! I'll keep it easy for ya, neutrals. You can't go wrong with neutrals/earth tones. I also offer a variety of dresses for the Mama's to wear during their session! They are open to use for maternity, newborn and family sessions! I also provide all the newborn outfits for your newborn session. Easy peasy!
ASAP! As soon as you see that positive test! Or as soon as you learn that you will have a scheduled delivery. Contact me to go over details of booking your scheduled C-section or inducement.
As soon as you book your newborn session, I will send out a prep-sheet. It will go over everything you can do before the session to help it run as smoothly as possible!
I send all your edited images to you on an online gallery. From there you can download, order prints, design photobooks, and create beautiful canvases. My goal is to have this ready for you within 4 weeks!
