NEWBORNS

Welcome, momma! Whether you're celebrating your first little one or baby #4, I am thrilled for you and would be honored to capture your growing family. Lifestyle newborn sessions have stolen my heart, and I'd love to share the gift of time preserved with you.

Because a few months from now, when your sweet little one is crawling around and oh-so-curious about the world around them, these photographs will allow you to look back and remember those first days as they were.

You'll see the room where you paced the floor, rocking your baby in your arms, trying just about anything to get them to sleep. The chair where you read story after story. The floor where they first belly-scooted across, and then crawled, and then took their first step.

Your home is where everything begins, and you deserve to have the gift of this moment preserved.

The Newborn Experience

After you get in touch, I will send a detailed guide your way with all you need to know about the newborn experience, including when to book, what's included, and how to best prepare for a successful in-home session.

Before your little one Arrives

01.

NEXT STEP

Hooray! Once booked, your due date is on my calendar. However, we'll wait to officially schedule your session once your little one arrives! Most sessions occur within the first two weeks of life on weekday mornings. 

your baby is here!

NEXT STEP

The day is finally here, and I'm coming over! It's my passion to document the every day of your family in the space where your little one's life story begins. As a momma, I know it's the little things that are really, truly the big things.

Your in-home newborn session

03.

NEXT STEP

Our session will be relaxed: all you need is to snuggle up close and marvel at the brand new person you made! While most sessions last up to an hour, I don't require a specific limit. Nursing breaks and diaper changes are all a part of the game; we'll capture sweet moments no matter what!

NEXT STEP

You'll receive a full online gallery of high-resolution images for printing, downloading, and sharing within two weeks. And don't worry, I still remember how eager I was to see our newborn photos, so I'll be sure to share plenty of sneak peeks along the way! :)

kind words

from Sami Renee families

"The day of our newborn lifestyle session was the first time we officially met Sami. She was so great to work with leading up to this day, coordinating schedules, checking in to see how I was feeling as my due date approached, etc. But when we met Sami in our home, it felt like we had known each other far longer! She was kind, professional, approachable, and we felt incredibly comfortable (a huge factor especially for lifestyle sessions). Her attention to detail and quick turnaround time was amazing!! We were also blown away by the extra steps she took after our session to continue to make it feel so personalized."

"I always thought having a simply beautiful photograph of our life was somehow out of my reach...but the images from Ava's newborn session are so beautiful, and there are SO many! I can't stop looking at them and will never be able to pick a favorite!"

- The Vickers Family
Cleveland, Ohio

"Those first two weeks are tough with a new baby, but I'm so glad I did a newborn session with Sami! Not only are the photos beautiful and something I'll treasure forever, but Sami was such a joy to have over! She knows those days are busy so she worked quick, but made magic. I remember thinking to myself, this might be the first time since we brought Scarlett home that I've really had a chance to be here, in the present moment, holding my daughter and just appreciating everything we've been blessed with. It's a lot of work to get a shower, pick out an outfit (for you and baby — and husband!), put on makeup, clean up the nursery and put a smile on when you're holding back tears about breastfeeding — but doing the newborn session is SO, SO worth it.

- The Wilson Family
Fishers, Indiana
