Your family journey is important to me because my family is the most important thing in my life. I strive to document your family as it truly is, the laughs and tears that mean big moments are happening for you. The motherhood story I am proud to capture includes maternity, adoptions, birth story, fresh 48, and family portraits.
Your session should capture the essence of your journey to and through motherhood. When time has passed you will want to look back on the snuggles, adventures, and love of your family.
Pregnancy is a beautiful time for your family, whether it is your first child or fourth, we can document your path of motherhood in a way that represents you. In your home or at a favorite spot you share with your partner, we can create unique memories together to celebrate your pregnancy.
Documenting birth stories is my absolute favorite type of photography opportunity because there are so many parts that I don’t remember from my own birth story. I want to capture the finite details and big emotions that happen in your birthing suite. Birth story sessions are so important to me because as I have gotten older, I have met so many amazing mothers that have walked very interesting, different, and hard paths to motherhood. While some had easy journeys to getting pregnant, others have struggled with infertility or difficult pregnancy symptoms. Each of those unique stories make for a birth that is highly emotional and celebrated. Birth stories give me the chance to encapsulate this moment for you and help it live on.
Birth story sessions include full coverage of your birth journey, beginning with active labor and ending one hour after the birth of your baby, capturing everything from your journey through labor to baby’s first breath, first latch, and first cry. I will be available 24/7 from 37 weeks until your new baby arrives. Along with birth story sessions I can provide Fresh 48 images of your newest addition meeting dad, mom, grandparents, or big brother/sister. This session will take about an hour depending on family size.
Fresh 48 or In-home Lifestyle Newborns
Lifestyle newborn sessions either in the hospital (Fresh 48) or your home should share the realities of having a new baby. Changing diapers, cuddling with new brother, and taking a quick nap with baby are all moments that I will capture during these lifestyle sessions. Ideally, newborn sessions should be done within the first month to really showcase the tiny toes and fingers that are quickly growing.
Real family moments in your home or at your favorite beach are worth saving and passing onto grandchildren. Often pictures on our phone never include us (moms) and will not end up printed, Baby Luna Photography focuses on capturing the love and connection between your family however big or small.
Capturing a real experience for your family like making cookies, reading a book, or having a dance party to your daughter’s favorite Taylor Swift song is my goal for your session at home. Let me in on your family’s daily routine so I can take a snapshot of your real life. Creating and passing on those true moments in your heirlooms makes them that much more special.
During our in-person or telephone consultation we will discuss the things that make your family special, your relationship unique, and how you got to the season you are in right now. I want to learn as much about you as I can to tailor your session to you. We will also discuss art for your walls and where you envision your portraits.
Building on the consultation, your session will be a special experience. I will provide you with posing guidance, but ultimately want you to just enjoy this time together. Whether you are a family of seven or a newly engage couple, this session is for me to capture your true personalities in a beautiful way.
The most exciting for clients and myself is viewing day! Viewing day requires some focus but allows you the opportunity to see the work we’ve created together. In a distraction free environment we will see your edited original preview and your full unedited gallery. Along with your gallery viewing, I will provide samples of the collections offered at Baby Luna Photography that perfectly match your home and style. After you have selected your favorite originals, we will finalize your order and I will get to work. The entire experience should be stress-free for you.
