MINIMALIST
I love babies. I actually have three, almost five of my own (two sets of twins and a little ginger man)
Birth + Fresh 48 Sessions are done at the hospital while newborn sessions are either done lifestyle at your home or in my studio located in Hunt Valley Maryland. I please ask that parents keep everything natural and your outfits as neutral as possible to focus more on the baby and your family than the objects in the photo.
If you're looking for minimalist, candid, emotional captures then check out more of my work below and pricing is all below too!
Typical newborn sessions up to 2 hours are $300 and include all of your high resolution edited images delivered digitally from the session.
Yep, you don't have to buy any afterward, they're all yours. 
But if you'd like to purchase prints, canvases, or albums I also offer those you can purchase separately!
FRESH 48 Sessions happen within 48 hours of the baby being born! Let me know about 3 months before your due date so we can plan ahead. These are typically done in hospital.
Newborn sessions are always done within 2-4 weeks of the baby being born. I book all of these sessions on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10A-2P. Newborn sessions are all scheduled for 2 hours in length because of the unpredictable nature of babies!
I always ask that parents be in the photos, because its not just documenting your baby its your life too and while I love the "posed" look of some newborn photos, I strive to create more of a candid, naturalistic look with my newborn photography.

All my packages include all of your edited images, the number presented is just the typical amount you are expected to receive and a minimum. You will not have to purchase any additional images following your session. They are ALL included :)
The amount of images is based on the temperament of the baby and parental involvement; meaning if parents are also included in the images there will obviously be more photos delivered. I don't pick and choose the images you receive, whatever images turn out, I send to you and they are yours to keep. You will not have to purchase any additional images after the session. If you'd like to buy an album or canvas, those are obviously additional costs but you are welcome to print wherever you'd like with the personal use print release included with your session. Then I like things very simple and believe there is an art to it.
If you'd like more of the posed look I can absolutely refer you to an amazing posed newborn photographer!

WHAT TO EXPECT
*this is my typical posing for newborns, natural and minimalist. I don't put them in crazy positions and prefer to get close up shots of their tiny details and I love it when they have their eyes open!*
read my *all about* Lifestyle Newborn blog post here!
01. What's your style?
Lifestyle, minimal posing, clean backdrops, baby/family focused. I really believe in capturing the entire family for newborn photos, not just the baby. So I ask that both of my parents come to the session ready for portraits as well. Please wear a white or neutral colored shirt (gray or beige) for the session so we can keep the focus on your faces and baby. I do a combination of LIGHT posing and lifestyle approach. We will start the session with the family and then end with a few posed photos of baby on a clean white backdrop, these are not the 'typical' newborn photos you see online. Baby is always clothed, wearing a white onesie with minimal movement of them so they can be as natural as possible. I ask that families bring a white onesie for the baby for photos but I have a few neutral wraps for swaddling as well as diaper covers for posing as well you can use.
02. What can I expect if I do a studio session?
My studio is on the third floor (stairs) only in Cockeysville Maryland at 12 Galloway Avenue Suite 3D Cockeysville MD 21030. You'll arrive and be welcomed with coffee and snacks if you'd like as the session can take up to 2 hours due to baby temerpant and feedings! Before arriving I ask that you feed the baby prior to coming in so they are all full and content but you will most likely be feeding them throughout the session to keep them happy! If siblings are present we will do photos with siblings first (because attention spans are real for kids) and then with the entire family followed by with the parents. I have a few neutral walls I use as backdrops with natural lighting. I try to use as much natural lighting as possible so you won't see a "typical" photography studio vibe when you walk in (its like a living room). Then after those I'll have you both settle the baby and then I'll take baby, you can grab a coffee and some snacks and relax for a bit and I'll pose your baby in natural looking poses on a flat white backdrop (its a large pillow with white sheets over it). If you have a specific outfit you want them to wear please let me know! But to keep to my style it should be neutral in color and minimal with "extras".
03. What can I expect if I do an at home session? 
Same as above but I don't bring my backdrop with me, I keep everything very lifestyle and true to what you have in your home. We'll do photos of the nursery decor, baby in the crib, in your living space as well as a few on your bed in your bedroom. Those are the three main places I try to work with. I ask families to have clutter picked up and keep all the window fixtures open to allow for plenty of natural lighting. I have lighting I can bring but prefer natural lighting. These sessions take up to 2 hours as well but typically are about 1 hour in length.
04. Do I have to buy photos after the session?
Not from me. I operate on a "shoot and share" philosophy rather than IPS (in person sales). I prefer to deliver all the usable images from the sessions to my clients rather than having them choose which ones they'd like. All images are edited and retouched however extensive retouching ( heavy blemishes, any background clutter, or liquifying) are available for an additional fee per photo based on time to retouch those specific photos. I offer albums and canvases you can purchase separately but you can also print anywhere else with your personal use print release. If you'd like to order prints you can do those through the online gallery you will receive!
05. How do I receive the photos?
Digital download in an online gallery. This is also great because you can share this gallery with your family and friends and they are also able to download all or any single photo from the session for free! It's all included! If they'd like to purchase prints they can do so right on the gallery site from my favorite printing company!
06. How do I pay?
You will pay a non-refundable retainer of $50 to hold your session date and time. From there you will pay the remaining balance on the day of your session in the form of cash, check or credit card.
