My hope is that this blog inspires you to document what matters most to you. I'm a photographer and also a mom to 3. My photography is inspired by the fleeting moments I've found in motherhood.

In August, I had the privilege of capturing a beautiful in-home newborn family session in Virginia Beach. Little Nolan was just about a week old at the time, and it was heartwarming to see this loving family welcome their newest member.

What I truly appreciated about this session was the family’s relaxed approach. They allowed their older daughter to choose her own outfit that she felt comfortable wearing, and she even brought in her tricycle. You wouldn’t believe how much laughter and joy that simple addition brought to the shoot.

This is something I really love about in-home photography as a Virginia Beach photographer. You and your family can be in a relaxed, familiar environment, which is especially helpful for newborn shoots! Instead of feeling stressed or rushed, we truly had a carefree vibe, and the session was so full of love.

As dad worked his magic to soothe baby Nolan, we took the opportunity to capture some tender moments between mom and her daughter. It’s those unplanned, authentic connections that often yield the most heartwarming photographs. These are the memories that they will want to look back on for years to come.

During newborn sessions, I make it a point to focus on those precious little details—tiny feet, delicate hands, and adorable ears. These are the images that parents often treasure most, as they allow them to revisit the early days of their baby’s life. Babies change so quickly, and it can be hard to remember just how tiny those toes were. I focus on capturing the details, so you can always remember how precious they were when they were tiny.

In a delightful twist, the grandparents and even the family dogs joined in for some photographs. That’s the beauty of having your session at home; it allows for a truly authentic portrayal of your life at that moment.

An in-home newborn family session like this one allows you to stay in a comfortable and familiar environment while I capture your newest addition. They help document your family exactly as it is now to preserve memories you’ll cherish for years to come. So, if you’re considering a newborn photoshoot, don’t underestimate the beauty of capturing your family in your own cozy space. It’s where your love story begins, and it’s a chapter worth preserving.
