No props or unnatural poses. Just you, your baby and lots of love and snuggles captured in the comfort of your home or outdoors. Whether you're welcoming your first baby or completing your family, they are only this little for a short time. Document the early days of your new life with your baby. I'll capture all the little details and tender moments and turn them into works of art that you'll treasure for years to come.
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.

In home newborn sessions typically take place mid- to late morning, while outdoor newborn sessions are scheduled 1-2 hours before sunset. Sessions are approximately 1.5 -2 hours to allow time for feeding top off and diaper changes as needed.

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 of homes of all sizes and styles. All I need is one room with a good-sized window and a bed or chair.
I always aim to include siblings in NJ newborn sessions. I've found that siblings do best when they know what to expect, made to feel important during the session, and 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.
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.
Wondering what you should wear for your in home newborn session? I've got you covered! I have a helpful blog post on the topic with lots of inspiration and am more than happy to offer custom styling suggestions during the session consult.
