Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
I’ve photographed a fair amount of in-home newborn sessions that I figured I’d share some tips on how to make it go as smooth as possible! First of all, I (or any photographer) do not expect things to be perfect. Messy houses are fine, a baby who cries is fine. Taking breaks is fine. It’s all going to be just fine 🙂
I personally walk into each and every home knowing full well that there will be breaks involved and that it’s going to take a while. We have the luxury of taking it slow and just following the baby’s lead! I work really hard to make it a super low-stress experience, because you’ve already got enough going on as new parents! And yes, if your baby cries, I’ll photograph it, because even when they’re crying they’re so damn cute!
Okay, here we go!
There you have it! We never had an official one with Lily, and I wish we had, just so that we had some photos of the three of us in those first few weeks! It just literally never occurred to me, haha, because we had birth photos done! I hope that these tips are helpful for all you new parents out there planning their own newborn sessions!
