Maternity & Newborns

I strive to capture genuine emotions that tell a story about your growing family. I do not pose babies, and the only props I like to use are the arms of the parents. With your trust, we will create authentic images you will treasure for a lifetime. Because my newborn sessions are documentary in nature, you can schedule your newborn session within days of being home or even at 12 weeks old. I always want mom and baby to be comfortable and ready, so choose a time that best meets your family’s needs.

Please swipe through the gallery, check out the featured sessions, see what my clients have to say; and if you like what you see, contact me. I’d love to help capture this special time for your family.

Lori was so kind and professional. She had so many helpful suggestions on how to capture the most beautiful photos of our son at home as well as wonderful recommendations on how to print and choose the best way to display the images for our family. I love that the images are natural and authentic.

Lori was wonderful to work with. She came to us in our own home and kept the session low-key and comfortable. She was accommodating to every situation my two newborn twins were able to throw at her and she captured some lovely shots in the process. The whole thing was a breeze and we are in love with our photos of our brand new babies

We want to thank Lori for her amazing skill and vision. We had a hard time finding a photographer for newborn pictures that captured our life and love for the newest member of our family. Lori was exceptional at capturing our newborn and us as a family in our home. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Lori was prompt, professional, and supportive from the initial email to the ordering session.

Lori was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was very understanding, thoughtful, easy-going, and fun! As new parents, we were stressed with the unanticipated early arrival of our son. When Lori came to our home she immediately put us at ease, and beautifully captured some of our favorite photos of our new son and family of three. She is so talented at what she does – especially working with the little ones. We especially loved that she took the extra time to get to know our family, and it definitely showed in her work. We can’t wait to call her back to help us document future milestones for our family!

1. Where do newborn sessions take place?
In the comfort of your home
2. When should I schedule my newborn session?
Most of my newborn clients schedule their session prior to their baby’s arrival. It ensures your date on my calendar. We will pick a date around your due date, then make any adjustments after your baby is born. I only schedule a limited number of sessions each month to allow for this flexibility. However, don’t hesitate to contact me if your little one is already here. If I have availability, I would love to document this special time for your family.
3. What should we wear?
No worries. I am here to help. I truly enjoy every step of the process. I have gone to clients’ homes and helped them shop in their own closet, as well as collaborate on shared pinterest boards. Once you book, I will send you an email with tips on what to wear, a pinterest board for inspiration, and even a link to my online styling/shopping page.
4. I’ve noticed that some newborn photographers will only photograph newborns within a certain window of time. Is that the case with you?
Nope. My style of newborn photography focuses on the growing family and is more documentary in nature. I want to photograph your newborn when you feel ready. For some families that is within the first week, at 6 weeks or even 12 weeks.
5. Do you sell digital files?
Yes, I do. Please inquire for a full price list
6. Do you offer newborn mini-sessions?
No, I do not. Newborns are unpredictable in nature. Some sessions are done in under two hours some take up to three hours. I do not want to rush the process. If your baby needs to eat, we will take a break for feeding. I strive to keep things relaxed and easy.
7. Can I keep my images private?
Absolutely. I love to share client sessions on my blog, portfolio, and social media. It helps convey my style to potential clients, but also gives clients a way to share images with family and friends. However, not all of the families that I work with want to have their family photographs shared online. I completely respect your privacy. Just let me know that you want to keep them private during your phone consultation, your session, or during your ordering appointment.
