What to wear for your lifestyle newborn session

If you are anything like me then you have most likely stared at the clothes in your closet while getting ready, thinking you have nothing to wear and hate everything you own. Add in the pressure of wanting beautiful newborn photos with a postpartum body and it’s a lot for anybody to handle. I’ve been there, I understand. My goal with each newborn session is that you are prepared well before baby arrives earth side. That way there is minimal wardrobe stress the day of photos and you aren’t staring at your clothes wishing you would have planned it out


Sacramento Fresh 48 Photographer

When my dear friend Nicole told me she was expecting her third baby we almost immediately began planning a hospital newborn session. Being able to capture those precious moments in the hospital after giving birth is something that both of us have loved for a while. We knew that everything was going to have to line up perfectly though. I live just outside of Sacramento in Rocklin and she delivered in Modesto. Thankfully, it was meant to be! We quickly began referring to it as a Fresh 12 instead of a Fresh 48 since the timing was so quick from


Newborn Photography Session Roseville

Even though a mama spends 9 months preparing for the arrival of their baby growing in their womb, there is nothing quite like those first few days home from the hospital.

What is a Lifestyle Newborn Session?

Although you may have heard the term “Lifestyle Photography” before you might be wondering exactly what it means.

I have always been drawn to light, authenticity and deep connections with others. My love for photography began as I watched my mom capture our families adventures and then wait in anticipation for the photos to be developed. I was so fascinated that I was able to look back and relive those moments through our photos. As a wife and mama to three babies (who aren’t really babies anymore) I know just how precious these days are. I want to remember all the little things about motherhood, how my kids felt in my arms and what our family has looked like through each stage of life. I carry this deep love of storytelling and authenticity when I am behind the camera and hope to capture your beautiful family soon.
