I’m fairly confident that no matter your home, whether you have a nursery or you don’t, that we can get great newborn photos. But it always does help when you get to work with a beautiful home and a beautiful family, like this Grosse Pointe newborn session. It was so lovely to meet little George and his parents last fall in their beautiful Grosse Pointe home with some great mid-century decor vibes.
George was not the happiest camper during our session, but you can’t tell from the photos we got! He was a happy boy once we got him wrapped up and even gave us a little smile. As the mother of a former cranky baby, I’ve got all the tools in my toolbox for calming babies. Myles was a colicky little guy so I know the tricks.

I love photographing my wedding couples when they become parents as a Livonia newborn photographer. Peter’s parents were a 2019 wedding couple of mine and I was so honored to be asked to take his newborn photos.
Peter joins big sister Lucy, who was very protective of her little brother while I was around. She jumped into a few photos too. I loved photographing this new family under their wedding photos which I took! Full circle.
Sarah and Kyle did an amazing job on Peter’s nursery – you can tell the care and thought they put into it.
The funniest part of this session was as soon as I got Peter all wrapped up, he pooped. We had to do it again haha! He was so calm and good though, a sweetheart.

There is something so special when a family invites me into their home and allows me to photograph some of those precious family moments when there’s a new member of the family. Despite my business name, I don’t actually own a studio or do studio photography work (at least right now). I’m completely on-location. That’s not what the name is about – another post for another day! I favor newborn sessions done in the home and really focused on capturing the family without all the props and fanfare. That’s just not me.
Sarah and Christian welcomed Elliott into the world in early May and she had sought me out prior in hopes of a lifestyle session for her newborn. I was so excited because I actually really like shooting families in home. I found this out after my good friend Allyson allowed me to do her daughter’s newborn photos.
Big brother Xavier, who is now three, provided an endless amount of toddler entertainment. I have a feeling one day these two will be good buddies and that Xavier will enjoy having a little brother to play and run around with. I know I feel that way about my younger sister. But for the session, we smiled and waited for a sweet moment to arrive…and it did. Elliott was a perfect angel and cried less than all the other newborns I’ve encountered…win!
I have known Allyson since freshman year of college. We lived next to each other for a whole year and spent many nights on the couch watching Lifetime movies and Grey’s Anatomy. Allyson and her husband Zack live nearby and this past fall,Allyson sent me a message and asked if I wanted to shoot her soon-to-be-born baby girl’s newborn photos. And I was SO. EXCITED. Of course I said yes because I have been dying to do more in-home baby/family sessions.
I’ve never had a lot of babies to hold or play with in my life. I adore them and think they are so cute, but I’ve not spent a ton of time around them. I met Lyla when she was 10 days old and she just has a mind her own…meaning she didn’t sleep a wink during our session! It didn’t matter because we were aiming for lifestyle photos — capturing the family as they would be.
It’s incredible to watch friends become mothers. Allyson is a wonderful person and I can tell that she is an awesome mom. I was honored to take Lyla’s newborn photos and some photos of this precious little family. I can only hope that Josh and I have two little girls that are just as cute (fingers crossed!).
