Working with Grace for

Newborn Sessions

Real is perfect.


The newborn stage is like no other. As a mom of a one year old, I was there pretty recently. It's a season of so much emotion, exhaustion, chaos, and beauty. It's different for everyone and yet for everyone the truth is: babies don't keep.

A newborn session with me is all about capturing your family as you are now. I come to you, keep you comfortable & relaxed, and let baby lead the way. I focus on using natural light, minimal props, and flowing with baby's schedule.

If you're looking to capture those beautiful, exhausting, messy, wonderful moments of your first few days with your baby - just as they are - I'm your girl.


When it comes to the details, I'm here to guide you.

I'll help you with what to wear, what areas of your house are worth tidying, how to hold baby, etc.


So let’s connect & capture these sweet little moments.

What to Expect


We'll connect before your session to talk about:

-What to Wear

-Locations

-Session Timing


Based on the package you book, we'll work with your baby to capture:

-Individual Shots

-Family Shots

-Shots with each parent and any siblings


Feeding, calming, and changing baby are all part of a normal session and nothing to worry about scheduling around.

I recommend planning your session for early to mid morning, planning for when your baby tends to nap.

Grace has been our family photographer since our oldest son's Fresh 48. Since then, she has been there to capture so many monumental moments for our family. Over Mother's Day weekend, we were able to snag a session for my mom. She normally doesn't love taking pictures, but felt totally comfortable and confident with Grace. The prints turned out incredible and captured the special bond of my boys with their Nonna. We will hold onto these treasures forever.
