Newborn photography holds such a special place in my heart. Since we moved to upstate New York, I’ve had the pleasure of telling the stories of so many beautiful families with new babies, and this is one of my favorites.
The love between this family was just so evident. From their chilly snowy day maternity session to their lifestyle newborn session in sweet Jackson’s beautiful nursery, they just exude love for one another — including their bashful pup Peanut, who joined in for a few shots, but only on her own terms!
It was such an honor to take some of their first family pictures together and to be welcomed into their beautiful home. Each and every detail of the nursery was thought out with so much care. It was the perfect place to capture mom, dad, baby, and Peanut all together as a brand new family. I enjoyed that afternoon so much, and just getting to know such kind and lovely people.
And now, without further ado, please enjoy some of my favorites from baby J’s lifestyle newborn session!

This family was such a joy to work with for their Rochester in-home newborn session.
I always tell parents that we’ll follow baby’s lead, taking the time to feed or burp or change as needed. I never want them to feel stressed about keeping to a schedule. These parents allowed us to do just that. They were so laid back and trusted me to capture their family with sweet Felix just a handful of days old without any added stress or expectations of how the session should go.
We spent the afternoon in his most beautiful green and white gingham nursery, which his mama had decorated oh so thoughtfully. The sun poured in and illuminated the space, and we just captured the day as it unfolded.
What beautiful families I get to work with as a Rochester newborn photographer.
I loved taking these pictures for our sweet next door neighbors. Their yard was the perfect place to capture the whole family together, sun illuminating the path where baby boy lie on his heirloom quilt.
Outdoor newborn pictures in upstate New York can be so beautiful if an in-home session isn’t quite your style. Spring, summer, or autumn, the moments will be so very precious. And how special one day to be able to look back and remember what your home looked and felt like in this short season of life.
