oakville in home lifestyle session for baby L and yorkie dog and parents by hope and salt_2024


Relaxed, simple, natural

I am a newborn photographer based in the Burlington, Ontario area. I believe that simple is most beautiful and that’s how I approach photographing your baby. The first few weeks with your sweet new baby are a blur. You're excited, emotional and in awe of the new life you have created. Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home and we focus on creating images that capture the connection and emotion that is present when a new baby enters a family. We will capture gorgeous details of your new baby along with their family loving on them.


Newborns are typically photographed within the first three weeks of age, however lifestyle newborn sessions can work wonderfully for babies aged anywhere from 1 week to 3 months old. In this type of session, most often your newborn will remain in your arms. I will swaddle them and get those precious, natural looking photos of baby laying in places such as your master bed or in their crib or bassinet.


It’s best to book your session about 4-6 weeks in advance to ensure availability! But if your baby is due soon or already born, don’t worry, just send me a message to see when I can fit you in. We can photograph your baby within the first few weeks when they still look tiny and newborn or we can schedule your session for when they are a few months old to capture their eye contact, smiles and interaction with you.


I travel to Burlington, Oakville, Waterdown, Hamilton, or Milton for newborn sessions. From time to time I am able to travel outside of this area for a travel fee. Inquire for rates and availability.


If you are looking for a session with primarily posed baby photos, take a peek at my studio newborn page.

I also photograph newborns outdoors during the summer months in a special outdoor newborn family session.

Inquire for more details.
