Colorado lifestyle newborn Sessions

Focus on Connection

My biggest goal for your session is for you to walk away with photos that showcase the special new arrival in your family, and that celebrate all ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes (or maybe twenty? twins?) now that your family is growing and changing. Whether this is your first child or fourth, these are special times and certainly worth documenting because they are fleeting and they only stay teeny for a moment. I can document you and your new little one just as you are with little to no guidance, or I can providence gentle posing - whichever style suits your preference, indoor or outdoor. I am happy to photograph you snuggling, rocking, breastfeeding, bathing your baby, or even just taking a stroll in the park with your new little one in your arms.

Covid 19

I take the health and safety of my clients (as well as myself and my own family) very seriously so it is my top priority to make sure that all sessions are conducted safely. I am happy to photograph you in the comfort of your own home while wearing a mask and maintaining a safe social distance, or I can photograph you outdoors also while wearing a mask and remaining socially distanced. But don't worry, due to the nature of the documentary style of my newborn photos, the minimal guidance I may have to give will not be impacted by the need to remain distanced. If you have any specific needs or concerns regarding Covid-19 and your shoot- please reach out!


Many times it's best and easiest to take newborn photos in the your own home. I am happy to do that, however given the state of the Covid-19 pandemic, and despite the precautions I am taking, I know not everyone may feel comfortable with that option. Taking newborn photos outdoors if weather allows can be just as beautiful, and even allows for capturing photos after the typical 'newborn window.' I have lots of places I love photographing across the Denver Metro area and beyond. Whether you want a city park, urban street art, or mountain scenery, Colorado has it all! Lots of places do require permits and often additional fees may apply, however if you have a spot in mind I always do my best to make your wishes come true!

Session Prep & What to Wear


  • For adults: Comfort is king, and neutral goes a long way. I find the best newborn photos are the ones that look the 'cleanest' and the ones that focus on the baby, and as babies are obviously so little, I tend to think that loud, colorful and busy clothes distract the eye and pull focus away from that which we are trying to highlight; your new arrival! So when planning outfits for an indoor newborn session, think easy, comfortable (but still beautiful and well cared for) whites, greys, beiges, tans. Simple embellishments like lace or crochet can add a nice touch for a little texture.
  • For baby: Sticking with neutral to match you, or soft pastels is great, and staying away from patterns is preferred. Making sure you have a few solid ones, solid swaddles and wraps that you can wrap tightly is great. Additionally, Diaper covers are great so that if you want to do a few shots without a onesie on or mostly skin to skin but not risk an accident on your outfit keeping a diaper and a diaper cover on is great. For little girls, when selecting headbands, I generally recommend headbands that are small & delicate as to not overtake her beautiful face!


  • Indoor sessions: To ensure your session goes as smoothly as possible there's just a few things you can do to tip the scales in your favor! First, do your best to make sure your baby has eaten just before your session an is hopefully ready to sleep soon after I arrive. Second, have then temperature in your home above average warm, so that your little one will be comfortable being wrapped and unwrapped and moved around without getting cold. Third, please try to clear the areas we will be photographing of any clutter, cords and excess items you wouldn't want photographed. Things like baby monitors, items on nightstands, baby toys, food items, clothing, etc.
  • Outdoor sessions: Just like indoor sessions, there are a few things you can do to plan for success! I generally ask clients to travel light when planning outdoor sessions, but in the case of babies we all know that is easier said than done. Please make sure you pack a bottle if need be in case your babe needs to feed during our time, or be prepared to breastfeed to settle a fussy babe. Please also make sure your baby will be warm enough for the weather by having a swaddle on hand. Finally please bring a neutral colored quilt or throw blanket you all can sit on for photos.
