Newborns & Babies

hudson valley newborn photographerNewborns and babies are my absolute FAVORITE clients to photograph. As a mom of two, I know how fleeting these moments are. Every day our babies grow a little bit bigger, a little bit older. My goal is to capture this moment in time so parents can look back and remember the flawless beauty that they created.

My top priority is ALWAYS the safety and comfort of your baby. *No matter who you choose to do your newborn photography, please make sure they follow proper safeguards to ensure the safety of your baby:

-I have taken numerous newborn photography workshops and am well versed in newborn posing & safety. Many newborn poses you find on online are composites (multiple pictures combined together in post processing). These poses can be dangerous if not done properly. A newborn should never be forced into a position that makes them uncomfortable.

-I will NEVER shoot a baby if I am sick. I will inform you immediately to reschedule.

-Myself and everyone in my household are up to date on all vaccines.

-All props and blankets are washed in free & clear detergent before and after every session.
