Capturing real moments
to tell your family's story.

Debbie captured the most stunning moments of my two-week old, even amidst his crying sessions, and made the experience feel light-hearted and enjoyable. She calmed my new-mama nerves in many ways. She went above and beyond! Debbie is your go-to for amazing family photography done with style, grace, and a lot of kindness! And you'll end up with photos you will absolutely love.

Digital images are available for download within 24 hours of purchase. Custom designed artwork will be hand-delivered within 4 weeks of order.

Q: When is the best time to book a newborn session?

Frequently asked questions
about NJ Newborn sessions 

Lifestyle newborn sessions allow for some flexibility in choosing the age that works best for your family. Scheduling a session when your baby is 6-14 days old allows us to capture those fresh first few weeks when your newborn is sleepy. But some families prefer to schedule a session when they feel a little more settled into a routine at home with their baby. In that case, I suggest we plan a session when your baby is 2-4 weeks old. There really is no rule though and I've photographed babies who are three, six, and nine months old. I recommend reaching out and booking with me before the birth of your baby when possible. We can pick a tentative date and I'm always happy to adjust it if we need to.  

Q: what if my house isn't Ideal?

Your home doesn't need to look like a cover of a home decorator magazine for me to create stunning photos of your newborn and family. I've photographed families in homes of all sizes and styles. All I need is one room with a good-sized window and a bed or chair and you and your baby to make magic! I'll asses your home and find the room(s) with the best natural light. During your session planning call, I'll give you tips for getting your home ready -- no crazy cleaning required, I promise! I recommend removing clutter and any items you wouldn't want in your photos.

Q: WHAT if siblings don't cooperate?

Including siblings in newborn sessions is a wonderful way to capture your family dynamic along with tender and candid moments. I've found that siblings do best when they know what to expect, are made to feel important during the session, and are given the freedom to be themselves. I have several other tips up my sleeve that are helpful with toddlers. Most important is to avoid threats to behave. Instead, come up with a reward that your toddler or child would look forward to after the session.


Choose comfortable clothing that reflects your style and coordinates, without overly matching. Neutral colors and muted tones work well for in-home sessions, look timeless, and feel fresh and organic. After you book your session, I'll send you lots of helpful tips and outfit inspiration for planning clothing. I'm also happy to offer custom styling suggestions during your session consult.

Q: DO YOU pose newborns?

I do not pose babies or place them into unnatural positions. I believe babies are perfect resting comfortably in your arms, on a blanket, or in a crib. As a lifestyle newborn photographer, my aim is to capture authentic moments and natural interactions, including snuggling, playing, feeding that reflect your family's essence.


Generally, I recommend sticking with one outfit (possibly two) for your session. I find that babies are more likely to get upset during multiple changes. By sticking to a simple onesie, knotted gown or wrap, we'll ensure plenty of time to capture a variety of photos of your baby and family.

Q: how long do in-home newborn sessions last?

In home newborn sessions typically last 1.5 - 2 hours, allowing time for feeding top offs and a  diaper change if needed. Most important, you'll never feel rushed during your session.
