WHAT IS THE
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
Maternity sessions are done between 30-32 weeks, when your bump is nice and round, and before the swelling and discomfort start! You can schedule it as early as when you find out your due date. Waiting until you're further along may result in a less enjoyable portrait experience!
"Of all the things my hands have held, the best so far is you."
Newborn sessions are done around 7-10 days old, in a beautiful natural-light studio in the Hillcrest District, Little Rock. They last around 3 hours, and focus on photos of your precious babe in a hand-picked selection of high-quality wraps and neutral-colored baskets. We will also take a few naturally- posed photos on my posing bag. The rest of our time will be spent creating timeless portraits of your new family- parents and baby, siblings and baby, and the whole family. The environment is warm and relaxed, with easy access to a bathroom, comfortable furniture, a coffee bar, and water.
I recommend scheduling your newborn session as soon as you know your due date, to make sure I don't run out of availability! We'll pick a week on the calendar that falls in the 7-10 day range. If you deliver early or late, I will always accommodate to make sure we get those priceless portraits for you!
In-home lifestyle sessions are focused on your family doing life at home together. They're less posed, and are centered around connection and activity. Let the kids play! Snuggle up on the couch, let the dog sniff the baby. These are relaxed, fun, and SO special! In a few months, it will be hard to remember little details about life at home with a newborn, and these photos help save those memories. I recommend doing your In-Home Lifestyle session when baby is between 3 and 4 weeks old. They are starting to open their eyes more attentively, connect with you, and the dreaded baby acne most likely hasn't arrived yet!
