Q. What is the difference between studio and lifestyle?

A. Studio newborn sessions take place in my studio located in Waynesville on historic route 66. I will prepare a space that is warm and cozy, and do 3 bean bag poses and 1 prop set up. Baby's safety is a top concern and I've been trained in handling and posing precious little ones. Since these types of sessions require a lot of patience and frequent feedings, plan on a 2-3 hour session. Lifestyle sessions take place in your home OR our lifestyle studio and we will photograph all those tiny little details and routines in the comfort of baby's new environment. Since this is unposed, baby doesn't need to be in that "magic" sleepy age range of 4-10 days.

Q. What do I need to know?

A. Prior to a studio or lifestyle session I will prep you with all the need to know information, such as foods that can make baby gassy, how to maximize light in your home, and what to bring (and leave at home). If you are worried your house is cluttered or not photograph worthy, don't fret! I shoot creative angles and the golden rule for documentary is either embrace the clutter, hide the clutter or get rid of it.

Q. What is your newborn photograph style?

A. Clean, simple, and timeless. I strive to make your sweet baby the central focus, not tons of props or crazy colors. I can accomodate small requests though.
