I take the safety of your newborn and your children quite seriously. I know that if I were looking for a photographer for my baby, I would want someone that knows about the safety involved in doing newborn photos. I am a qualified newborn photographer through APNPI https://apnpi.com/. I also completed my safety course with APNPI as well.
I never put a baby in harms way and I always make sure someone is with the baby during any poses. In saying that, I do ask for parents help for some poses so I have an extra set of hands. Some photos are only achieved in photoshop for safety concerns of newborns holding certain positions.
A few tidbits about me and working with me...
I have a stuffed up nose pretty much 90% of the time :( I get asked about that a lot "is your nose always stuffed up"? Yup, it is.
I have a pretty serious weakness for chocolate and anything sugary. There are some sweets I won't eat like gummy bears are kind of gross, or anything with that chewy, gelatinous consistency. But give me a peanut butter cup and I am as happy as a pig in.....
I have 2 awesome and crazy kids, a hubby of 13 years and we have a 3-year-old dog that hates the camera, and we recently added another puppy to the mix.
I have a home-based studio, so I like to keep a pretty relaxed atmosphere. You will probably meet someone in my family if you come for a session. I do always include family images (if you request them), with newborn packages, however, I do not do family sessions in the studio as it is not large enough. I use both natural and artificial light in the studio.
I am a full-time photographer/mommy to 2 kids so I do prefer emails over phone calls. If you are a parent of a small child you may understand, my kids do not allow me to carry a conversation on the phone without constant interruptions.
