Relax and Remember.
At-home lifestyle newborn sessions are done in your baby’s nursery, the master bedroom, or living room. Typically in a room that has a lot of natural light through large windows. Do not worry about your house being a mess, you just had a baby! All you need to do to prepare for this is open your blinds and let in as much light as possible. I will do and bring the rest.
These sessions typically take about 2 hours because the baby is in charge, so time must be allowed for feeding and diaper changes, etc. Newborns are unpredictable and since this shoot is all about them, we will take plenty of breaks for feeding and changes where needed.
I use some basic props (baskets, blankets, hats and headbands) if requested, otherwise the session is primarily a lifestyle series of images that represent the relationship and love you have for this new little person who has just joined your family!
I will walk you through all other frequently asked questions after you book (like what to wear, colors, prop requests, etc.). This is such a special time in your family’s life. A lot of emotions and sometimes overwhelm, but these photos will be a time for mom to relax. I will take good care of your baby—just try and relax and enjoy cuddling on your sweet baby and I will do the rest.

Her work speaks for itself.
“This month we welcomed our fifth child to the family! Chelsea took his newborn photos, as well as photos of our whole family. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She was so patient with not only a fussy newborn, but also his uncooperative siblings. She delivered our picture gallery to us quite promptly, which we definitely appreciated, and even posted multiple sneak peeks for us on her website and social media (she did ask our permission before posting). She made a somewhat stressful ordeal (trying to take good photos with a newborn and 4 small kids) super easy. Her work speaks for itself- the photos are beautiful, and we will treasure them forever. If you need photos, I would absolutely recommend hiring Chelsea!”
