I want you to be transported back in time and truly feel what this season of life was like. Whether it's capturing your love story and where your family begins, to hazy newborn days at home, or chasing your little ones around your favorite outdoor location, we will create something beautiful.

your story is worth telling


July 13, 2020


As we are currently in stage four of re-opening here in the Mohawk Valley, and with COVID restrictions in place for the foreseeable future, holding a newborn session outside instead of in your home is becoming the new norm. At first I was hesitant because I adore capturing you in your home, where your beautiful everyday memories are made. However, I’m happy to admit that I’m in LOVE with outdoor newborn sessions now!

Endless OptionsAlthough we traded your four walls for the outdoors, it doesn’t mean your location can’t be special! Unexpected beauty is right outside your front door! When this family told me they had a creek just across the road from them, I was like “take me there”!” As soon as we walked back I could just picture them as a family of three cooling off and climbing rocks in the stream in years to come. It was truly so peaceful and serene. If you don’t want to hold session on your property, there’s always your favorite park or downtown for more of an urban feel too.

Many of my in-home sessions are during winter months. So it is literally a breathe of fresh air for all of us. Babies also tend to be content and calm among nature, just like us parents. You’ve been spending a lot of time indoors recuperating, adjusting and endless feedings. Getting outside will feel amazing.Upstate NY Newborn photographer, mom and dad outside with baby girlUpstate NY Newborn photographer, mom and dad outside with baby girlThat golden light Although all I need is a good window to photograph you in your home, and I will move you and baby around your home finding the best light, there’s nothing like being in the golden light of the setting sun. It certainly adds a magical glow and feel to your images. It will also showcase the season your little love was born in.Delhi NY Newborn Photographer, Outdoor newborn sessionThe little details Even though we’re not in your intimate home, I can still get those little details you want to remember! Little toes, baby yawns, calm slumber. The session is even shorter because we’re not trying to get a variety of rooms in your home, stopping for changes and feedings (although if baby is hungry of course we will pause our session-or I’ll shoot right through if you’re comfortable).Oneonta NY Newborn Photographer, baby yawning in mom's arms outsideCooperstown NY Newborn Photographer, baby details outsideExtended Family Another wonderful thing about shooting outdoors is you can include extended family, or even your best friend. Remembering the special time when they met your little one is worth capturing too. If we were inside, it would be really hard to capture everyone. Being outdoors lets me step back further and get everyone in the frame.Delhi NY newborn photographer, best friends holding baby girlOneonta NY Newborn Photographer, extended family with baby girlSo what are you waiting for?! ;) Lets chat about your outdoor newborn session! And to see some tips about stress free photos with your kids (because those babies won’t keep!) check out this months’ blog circle feature Michelle Quattrin Family Photographer in Minneapolis.
