Irina was so patient with our newborn, she held her, helped calm her, and it took awhile. Irina was punctual and respectful, she has a very calming presence and was so kind. She also was willing to adapt and take a few family photos in different locations in the home. I am so grateful that she captured these memories, the results are stunning. We will never have this time back, but Irina made sure to capture the special moments. I highly recommend her to anyone else.

Recently, I had a lovely session that lasted about two hours with a baby girl who was just 8 days old.

 At first, she wasn’t sleeping, so I took a few adorable awake shots. After a good feed, she fell sound asleep. Having a bottle ready really helped because I could feed her right there without moving her, which might have woken her up.

My favorite shots from this session were of the baby in her mom’s arms. After capturing these precious moments, we moved on to family portraits, ensuring we also included the little details in the baby’s room.

The Keepsake package includes up to 60 fully edited photos, offering a comprehensive collection of memories from this special time. If you’re looking to preserve these early moments, the Keepsake package is a perfect choice.

Reach out to me before the session, and we can discuss everything thoroughly to create a plan. Being prepared makes the day more relaxed, allowing you to truly enjoy the moment.
