seattle Lifestyle newborn photographer

relaxed natural light baby photography at home in everett or seattle


The newborn photography sessions will happen in the comfort of your home, with no props. I travel all around Everett and also go to Seattle, Bothell, Mill Creek, Redmond, Mukilteo, Lynnwood and more! These photo sessions are laidback and paced according to the needs of the newborn baby. All I need you, baby and a big window with lots of natural light to get photos like you see in the gallery below. Here is a blog post I wrote about why it's an amazing idea to book an in-home lifestyle newborn session.

when is the best time to book a newborn session?


These newborn photos can be scheduled between 1-2 weeks or even until the baby is 3 months old (at the end of the baby's fourth trimester). Your baby is likely to be asleep for most of the session the earlier you book. If you'd like for more alertness, interaction and open eyes (from the baby, but I can understand if it's from you too, parents.), you can book a month or so later. That way you will have more time to get to know your newborn baby and relax a bit into your bodies and routine.

These sessions are led by the baby

I will be there with my camera as you navigate caring for this tiny human. These newborn sessions are baby-led and that means there is very little posing involved. If the baby need to eat, they eat. If they need a change, that's what you'll do. My camera will follow you as needed during this time we have together. I will give you direction throughout the shoot but the main goal is to love and connect with your baby. These sessions primarily take place at you home in Everett or other cities in the greater Seattle area.

Do i need to prepare my home for a newborn session?

There is very little you will need to do. I know how to move items out of the way for the shot. My camera can be angled to focus on you rather than your surroundings. Here is a great blog post I wrote about how you can prepare for a lifestyle newborn session in your home.
