My new nephew Hudson is here and being an aunt to this little doll face is the best! Free snuggles!
Those lips though…He’s so dreamy. Welcome to the family Hudson, the world is brighter with you here!
The best things in life are worth waiting for…and that is so clearly true for the Valdez family and baby Xavier!
This couple is very near and dear to my heart. Their journey into parenthood is one that has brought with it every possible emotion and struggle but as they hold this sweet baby, all of that becomes worth it in this moment.
Baby Xavier has found his forever home with these amazing parents and he could not have been more of a surprise…as they were expecting a girl! After years of options that had run dry, adoptions that fell through and hope worn threadbare, this family is finally together. It was for this moment that it all becomes worth the journey.
I am so happy for my dear friends to have welcomed this beautiful boy into their lives and hearts; he is so blessed to be family with all this love. Congrats Valdez family!!!

I cannot wait to meet all your new little ones and snuggle your beautiful babies!
This session fills me with warm fuzzies for days. I just could not get enough of this Mr. Boss or this sibling trio. These kids have contagious joy and as I edited this session, a smile was perma-glued ear to ear. With a new Boss man in town, his big brother and big sister clearly adore him! He is loved on and snuggled and obviously precious to not only his parents but his big brother and sister as well.
Newborn sessions are like a hot cup of coffee on an early Monday morning; necessary to me and my creativity and energizing to my soul.
The wrinkled little faces, tiny toes, and that newborn smell. Sigh.
Big sister is actually an experienced session pro since I captured her first days as well, about two years ago. And it looks like she is settling into her sister role really well too.
I consider it a special honor of trust when I am asked to document a growing family. Especially from those who have entrusted me to these precious moments before. This beautiful family has allowed me the opportunity to capture these celebration moments and I am so grateful!

I love doing newborn sessions and I am so grateful when a client schedules with me! A few things you’ll need to keep in mind is that you’ll need to schedule your session ahead of time- before your expected due date is preferable. That gives me some notice that you will be having your sweet little one soon and let’s face it, those babies have their own idea of the perfect birthday. Once your little one arrives you will need to call me directly to schedule your session which will be during the first 12 days after birth. This is the real newborn period when they’re still wrinkled and tiny and so very new. We don’t want to miss that window.
On the day of your session you should plan on spending approximately 2 to 3 hours with me. We will be working on your newborn’s schedule so I like to leave time for feedings, diaper changes and snuggles. I have an amazing new studio and that is where I prefer to have newborn sessions due to the airy, light and well-lit space it provides. This space has a bed and a beautiful environment which is perfect for intimate newborn sessions and is a space that I am already familiar with so I know we’ll get amazing photos there. And as an added bonus, I offer studio sessions at a discount!
Being away from home means that you will need to pack for that period of time and not just for baby, but for you as well. For many moms, this is the first time they’ve spent as much time out of the house since birth. You may need snacks and water or a nursing pillow. Even though our focus will be the newborn, I ask that you also be prepared for photos. Sometimes babies don’t want to sleep or settle during the session and just want to snuggle with mama. And that’s okay…if you are prepared! So whether or not you feel photo ready, a little make up and hair with a nice but comfortable outfit will help tremendously so that you look your best loving on your new little one!
I do schedule newborn sessions in your home if you prefer. If you decide to have the session in your home please have your home photo ready as it will be the backdrop to your photos. Because photos can capture quite a bit of the environment, it is best that the counters are cleared of clutter, and the floor picked up, as well as having your bed made. If your house is anything like mine, check under couches, tables, buffets and ottomans where things often mysteriously hide.
It is also important to get your home very warm before your session so we can do our best at keeping your little one asleep and warm for their photos when stripped down to a diaper; few things are as precious as a naked newborn baby! The whole family will need to be photo ready before the start of your session so that siblings, mom and dad can all be a part of the session. After all, this is a momentous time for everyone!
Whether you schedule in studio or at home, I do ask that you arrange for one parent to accompany siblings away from the session after we have taken sibling photos. I will try to take a couple shots of the siblings together because it is such a special time for all the children, however, it will be no more than 30 minutes of the allotted time and can make toddlers and little kids especially antsy to wait around for the session to end. The main focus of the newborn session is to really capture all the tiny details of your newborn during the first days. Excited siblings can make that particularly difficult so the group family photos will be minimal. If you would like to make that a larger focus, I suggest scheduling a classic Family Session as well.
Neutral clothing and mild prints are best for newborn sessions but you want to be comfortable and put-together most of all. If you are interested in any props for your session I do have neutral props such as blankets, wraps and baskets, as well as headbands for baby girls that I will bring along but you will be in charge of anything specific for your session such as hats, diaper covers, special outfits or meaningful props that can make your session unique and special for you.
As always, this is an all inclusive package which means you will receive a $50 print credit along with all of your digital images available for download in the online gallery. Also included is the print rights for all your images.
Congratulations on your new little one and I can’t wait for our session together! Welcome to the HHP Family!
