Newborn Photography in the Hudson Valley

Creating a Magical In Home Newborn Photography Experience

My Guide to Success for Any Family, In Any Home


Capturing precious moments with in home newborn photography is something I have loved doing for years. It really highlights the family connection that is building with your new baby in those sweet first days. Those early days are filled with tender moments and a love that knows no bounds. In-home newborn lifestyle photography is a beautiful way to preserve these once in a lifetime moments.

So why do I recommend in home newborn photography? To start, there is a comfort and familiarity being in one’s home. It offers an intimate and comfortable environment for both the baby and the family. The baby is in their own space, surrounded by familiar sights and sounds, which can lead to more relaxed space for everyone.

I also firmly believe that your home is a reflection of your family’s personality. We can easily incorporate personal elements into the photos, such as the nursery, family heirlooms, or even the family pet, making each shot uniquely yours.

Instead of posed studio shots, which you will often see with newborn photography, a lifestyle approach documents the genuine interactions between family members. So what are my tips for making these sessions successful? Natural light is key! I will always use natural light, and when I come to your home, I will look for windows and use natural lighting to stage the locations for your images. Different types of light will create different creative aesthetics, so I will guide you to what I think looks best.

Another tip is to clear certain rooms of clutter, and distracting backgrounds. A clean and uncluttered space will draw attention to the baby and the family, creating a more focused and beautiful composition. You don’t need to clean your whole house for these sessions! Just a few spaces that we will use is all that is needed, and I will also help re arrange when I arrive.

I understand that newborns have their own schedule, and it often involves feeding, changing, and cuddling. I am always patient and flexible, allowing for breaks and pauses when needed. It’s all good! Sometimes the unplanned, candid moments capture the essence of the family’s love and connection best. So you will often see me shooting during “in between” moments to capture these unscripted times.

In-home newborn lifestyle photography is a beautiful way to document the early days of your baby’s life. It preserves the authentic moments, the tiny details, and the love that fills your home. When you look back at these photographs in the years to come, you’ll be transported back to those moments and be reminded of the love of this special time!


I wholeheartedly believe in the power of authentic documentation. Our stories and truths are not only a gift for ourselves, but also through the generations, becoming treasured keepsakes as proof of our place and time. My passion lies in storytelling that focuses on your present moments. Whether our adventures take us deep into the Hudson Valley, high in the Catskill Mountains, or within the comfort of your home, it is always about where you are meant to be and where you feel the most alive.
