Born & New (In Black & White)

This particular newborn session resulted in 100+ final images delivered to the client, but I can't stop coming back to this handful.

I photograph a lot of newborns and my favorite way to document them is exactly like this: simply and naturally. I offer posing direction if necessary, but most of the time, stepping back to observe new parents interacting with their baby is more than enough.

Sometimes there's poop and peeling skin and exhaustion, but amidst that, there's also tiny toes and raspberry belly kisses and tenderness.

It is always a privilege to capture that.


  1. Oh man, the second to the last one- he's staring into his mama's soul! Beautiful. <3


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
