“Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is.”
If you’re anything like most new parents, chances are, you’ll remember these first days and weeks as a bit of a blur – the sleepless nights, the seemingly endless feedings (and then, of course, the hundreds (millions?) of diaper changes), and not to mention the fact that you’re learning everything about this little person that you love so intensely you think your heart is going to explode. How can you even put into words that love-at-first-sight feeling you have when you become a parent?
My hope for your newborn session is that it gives you the chance to always remember those first days, how small and fragile your little one was at the very beginning, that bond that you felt the minute you saw her. Those little features that will change and fill out in just a few short weeks, learning about that personality you know is already there.
Sleepy smiles that turn into real ones, and those tiny fingers that wrap around your finger will one day hold your hand – first to take a few wobbly steps, then to cross the street, maybe a bit of strength before walking into the first day of school, and later as you walk her down the aisle.
It really does go that fast, so be sure to hold fast to these memories, make sure you are really in each moment, for they outgrow them so quickly.
Kiss those sweet faces, enjoy your snuggles – this parenting gig is the greatest adventure you’ll ever experience.
Without further ado, say hello to little Miss May, just over one week old. Eight days, to be exact. So tiny, so peacefully perfect.
Every little detail of little May is loved so intensely by her Mom and Dad, and if that sweet sleepy smile is any indication, you can tell she knows.
May’s newborn session took place in my studio in beautiful downtown Tiburon, and she was just incredible. Some babies come in for their newborn session and it takes a bit for them to settle down, but not little May. She slept through her whole newborn session and only woke at the end.
Are you expecting a baby? Send me a message and let’s talk about your newborn session! It’s never too early to schedule your baby’s first photo session, and within the first two weeks of your baby’s life are the best time to capture this quickly fleeting stage.
There is an abundance of love in this sweet family’s home! You can feel it as soon as you walk in.
These girls are head over heels for their new brother, and it shows.
I absolutely adore newborn sessions like this one. Let me come to your home, and photograph your family just as you are at this point of your life. I encourage your children to show off their ballet moves, prove how high they can jump, and just be themselves. Have fun! This stage passes far too quickly, you want these moments to look back on when your children are as tall as you are (or taller!)
And of course, there are always plenty of images your sweet, precious baby…
Are you expecting a baby, or just want to freeze this moment in time with your little ones? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s chat!
This adorable little guy is a perfect example of why it’s never too late for newborn photos! While we may not get those super sleepy posed shots that I offer with 8 – 10 day old babies, I promise you won’t regret capturing this blink-and-its-gone phase.
These little loves grow so fast, and like adorable Charles here, those smiles are reason enough not to worry!

I’m so far behind on my blogging, but I just wanted to share this session that is special to my heart. It was so fun to be a part of little Ruby’s life, even before most people knew she was on her way. Her lovely mama is a dear friend of mine, and I was thrilled beyond words when she told me they were expecting a baby girl, and wanted to announce it with photographs! We did a little pregnancy announcement photo shoot last spring….
…and this sweet girl made her arrival last fall, just before the devastating wildfires broke out in Northern California.
She is nothing short of a ray of sunshine to all who meet her, and in that time where we as a community were experiencing fear, despair and loss, she reminded us that there is still hope, and goodness around us. That gorgeous smile tells me she arrived at the perfect moment in time.
We also made time for a three generation photo of these beautiful ladies. So much love in this family!!
