Ideas on how to dress your baby at home:

Wraps/swaddles can be patterned for the family to coordinate around or solid (Target, Homegoods, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Copper Pearl online, Amazon, local boutique, etc)

Solid sleepers, knotted gowns, white onesies (idea store:  https://katequinn.com/, https://cadenlane.com/, https://www.spearmintlove.com/ etc)

For the family: neutrals are always great with some pops of pattern/color

New for 2020/2021!

"Simple Fresh Newborn"

Planned within the 2 week timeframe.  We would find the room with the best natural light together in your home and take the photos in there.  It's about a 20 to 30 minute session like it would be at a hospital for a Fresh 48; photos will include family, mom/baby,  dad/baby as well as some of the baby alone.  Short and sweet.  Use of personal items like quilts and wraps-your supply only.  We can also plan to meet somewhere like a local greenhouse if available.
