Most of the images you see on this website are of newborns between 5 and 14 days after birth. At this age they are still sleepy and we can get those sweet curled up poses, and if we are lucky, some dreamy smiles! After this age, they don’t sleep as deeply, often don’t like being moved around into different positions and start to lose that “newness” or “curliness” and may become colicky, or develop “baby acne”.
To provide my clients with the highest quality, and non rushed sessions, I only take a limited number of sessions per month. It is important to schedule your session while you are still pregnant to avoid disappointment. This way, I can add you to the list of babies due for that month. You can then add me to your “To Call” list after you have your baby, and we will pick the best time that falls within the first 14 days. However, if you just came across my website, and have a baby under 14 days, please contact me, I will do my best to accommodate you.
All newborn sessions are done in my natural light home studio located in Grenada, MS. It is bright, warm, and relaxed. Perfect for your little one to be cozy and stay in dreamland. Take this time to sit back relax and watch some T.V, while I capture beautiful images of your new baby. All newborn sessions are held at 1:00 p.m. during the week. Studio is closed on Thursdays, weekends and holidays.
I believe in simple, clean, organic, classic portraiture, a style that focuses on your beautiful baby. I don’t use a lot of “crazy props”. Some of my favorite images have no props at all. Just baby. 100% beautiful on their own. This way, they don’t get lost in the image. I do have simple props available at the studio, hats and headbands and lots of textures that I like to use. Newborns often look most beautiful naked, or just with a hat, headband or wrap. Newborns are beautifully perfect…just as they came.
