Finding a newborn photographer near me

I remember the struggle I had finding a newborn photographer near me who ticked all of my boxes. There were so many options! In essence, I wanted to know they took safety seriously and of course wanted to love their style and imagery. As a newborn photographer I want to make that decision easy for my clients, here are the top three things I would look for now in finding a newborn photographer near me if I was expecting:

1. Safety First

You are trusting this person with a piece of your heart. It’s important to ensure that they are knowledgable in safe posing practices and that safety is always top of mind for them. When setting up the studio I always want to create a safe and natural environment where your baby can be comfortable and at ease. The session itself is a truly emotive experience. Watching their tiny fingers and toes, the innocent yawns and stretches. I am always reminded of the beauty of new life. As a QNP certified member of APNPI my priority is always the safety of your little one, first and foremost. For a list of questions to ask your potential photographer, click here!

2. Style

It’s important to find a photographer who fits the style you’re looking for, if light+airy and natural is your vibe then you’re in the right place. My newborn sessions all take place in my bright and clean studio in Barrie, Ontario. There is something about working with newborns that reminds me of the purity of life, of the newness that comes with each breath. It is a privilege to be entrusted with capturing these early moments of life.

Thinking back on my recent newborn sessions, I am struck by how deeply emotive and reflective my journey as a photographer has become. Through the lens of my camera, I have found myself transported to a world of love, emotion, and meaning. Capturing moments that are both fleeting and eternal.

3. Budget

Cost is an important factor in any decision you make for your family. My pricing is never hidden and I have several options available to suit the needs of my clients. I have beautiful oak framed images and luxe linen albums for those wanting to display and view their images off a screen. All of my sessions also include a selection of high resolution digital images as well. The choice is yours and there is never any pressure from me. Every one wants something different and I want to ensure you leave your session with exactly what you hoped for. For full pricing and details click here.

Through fifteen years of practice and exploration, I have learned to listen and observe. My camera has become an extension of my heart and soul. I have grown in my ability to bring out natural emotions, to capture raw beauty. I am grateful to be able to share in these experiences with you.

Thank you for trusting me.
