Eugene Oregon Newborn Photographer

In home newborn sessions are where it’s at! They are natural, comfortable, and raw. As your Eugene Oregon newborn photographer, I’m here for the authentic documentary style newborn sessions that capture the moments you never way to forget.

This in home newborn session was all about these new parents loving their sweet little baby in the most honest ways possible. My goal is for you to have a relaxed and comfortable newborn session. These images are loosely posted, baby driven, and lifestyle focused to capture this fleeting phase in a true to life fashion.

Newborn session info:

As a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer, I offer in your home, outdoor, or studio rental newborn sessions. Each option offers is own beautiful way of leaving you with a way to step right back into this newborn stage over and over again throughout years to come.

Here are a few considerations for each session option.

Considerations for in home newborn session:

  • Lighting – which room in your house has a large window with the most natural light? Living room? Nursery? Master bedroom?
  • Time of day – best time of day for in home newborn sessions are midday or golden hour (if it’s sunny)

Considerations for outdoor newborn session:

  • Weather – we’re obviously not going to take a newborn out in cold, rainy, or too hot of weather so outdoor newborn sessions are restrictive to time of year

Considerations for studio rental newborn session:

  • Increased price – studio rental newborn sessions are offered at The Gray Lab studio in Corvallis or Salem are 2 hours and have studio rental fee of $85 that will be added to your session fee

Eugene Oregon newborn photographer and mom preference for newborn sessions:

My personal preference as a photographer and mother for newborn sessions is in home. They are intimate and the most comfortable. When my son was born it was so convenient to have our photographer come to us. I was exhausted and I didn’t want to worry about outfits for everyone. I just wanted to snuggle my family and try to relax.

How to have a relaxed newborn session?

  1. Let go of expectations. The newborn stage is tiring enough. Let go of beliefs that you need a Pinterest worthy home or perfectly coordinated outfits for newborn photos. This will allow you the freedom to have a more relaxed newborn session. These photos are about honest love and telling your authentic story.
  2. Be yourselves. This means different things to each family. Also, it’s what makes your photography experience unique to you. As a Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer, I aim to establish a connection with you prior to your newborn session. This helps you feel more comfortable and confident around me.
  3. Book a maternity and newborn bundle. I offer a discount when you book your maternity session and newborn session as a bundle. This is a great way for us to work together prior to your newborn photos and creates a relationship. I’m here to celebrate your families memories alongside you. I absolutely love building longstanding client relationships and being able to document children in various stages of life. Learn more about my maternity and newborn bundle here.
  4. Communicate your comfort levels. Whether you’re open or reserved, I’m here to meet you where you are.
