The above gallery can give you a quick overview of how I capture newborn sessions. And below, the featured galleries will give you a clear idea of my style of photography, editing, consistency, and just how much of an awesome time we'll have together! All newborn photography sessions are captured in the comfort of your own home!
BAby H & Family
This new family of four rocked their in home lifestyle newborn session. Adding a new sibling to the family can be hard for the older siblings but this big brother just adored his little sister. We had such a fun time together and the photos are absolutely beautiful!
Welcoming Baby N
Baby N was welcomed by her adoring parents and proud big sister. Our session was on a cool spring morning, in the Junction Triangle, Toronto, but that didn't stop us from capturing these warm and loving photos.
It's so fun to see older siblings with their new family member. Big sister was a total superstar.
These at home newborn photos took place in a West Toronto home. Every newborn session I photograph is unique because no two homes are the same. This makes your experience that much more personal. These precious moments are captured in your space, showing off your family's unique personality. How amazing is that?! Even Baby K's kitty sibling joined the fun!
authentic moments captured
Besides getting married, having a new baby is one of the biggest milestones in your life. How do you want to remember these early days? My newborn portrait sessions take a more lifestyle approach and take place in home! I don't use elaborate props or pose your baby. Your baby is in charge! I love capturing the connection between you and your newborn. Our session will include lots of snuggles and all the little details you won't want to forget. From tiny baby hands to wiggly baby toes, I've got all the details covered.
Your professional newborn photography session will take place when baby is between 1-2 weeks old, but if you need more time to get your bearings and feel more comfortable, we can choose a later date. Sessions take place in the comfort of your own home and are usually 1-2 hours long. I typically shoot in the mornings when baby is most calm. You do not need a giant home to have a beautiful session! All we need is one window and I promise you, we will capture beautiful moments.
When you choose to have your newborn portraits taken in your home, you are choosing a custom portrait experience. No two homes are the same and no two families are the same. Capturing your new family member in the comfort of our own home allows those natural, organic moments to transpire. These magical moments are ones you will treasure for a lifetime!
Prior to your session, we will talk wardrobe choices and I will send my newborn prep guide to help prepare for your session. Siblings and pets are always welcome! It is so fun to see new sibling interactions. If grandparents are visiting, we can even get a shot of two of them with the new baby at the end of our session!
Our life together has just begun. You're part of me, my little one.
Send me a message through my contact form and let's start the conversation about your perfect session. I want to hear it all. When you are due, who will be photographed. Ask me anything. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Based on your due date we can schedule a tentative session date. Your paid session fee will ensure a date on my calendar. Once your baby is born, we will touch base to determine if our date still works.
**It's best to book your newborn session a few months before your baby is due to ensure I have the availability for you.

Once we've got your session in my calendar we can plan all the fun details! We can plan colour schemes based on your homes decor. I will work with you to select the best wardrobe options. I will also advise you on how to prep your home and the spaces we will be using. I will send you a prep guide so you know what to wear and how to prep your house and the baby for your session. I have a selection of beautiful neutral outfits that your newborn can borrow for our session too!
Leading up to your session, send me an email or give me a call if you have any questions. Stuck on what to wear? I can help! Not sure what rooms to use? Send me pictures of your space and we can decide together. I will be with you every step of the way. My priority is to ensure this is a seamless and enjoyable experience for you.

I usually spend between 1-2 hours with my newborn families. I work as quickly as possible to ensure you receive a beautiful gallery of images to choose from.
This is the exciting part! Session galleries are usually ready to view within one week. It try to get them out as quickly as possible. I will send you a private gallery to view your session images. You will be able to select your favourites and choose a collection according to your needs. .

When should I schedule a newborn session?
What should we wear for our session?
How long will my newborn session take?
I recommend booking your session with me a few months before your baby is due. I only take a limited number of newborn sessions a month to ensure that my clients get their preferred dates. Generally newborn sessions are scheduled within the first 2 weeks after your baby has arrived. At the time of your booking, we will pencil in a date and once your baby has arrived we will finalize the date.
My newborn sessions take between 90 minutes and 2 hours. This gives us lots of time for cuddles, diaper changes, feeding and whatever else the baby might need. When siblings are involved, they tend to go a little longer than 90 minutes.
Once you have booked a date with me, I will send you my session prep guide which includes lots of information on what to wear. Neutrals and softer colours are always a great option. However if your home has a richer colour scheme then coordinating with that will also be great! I have a selection of beautiful outfits that your newborn can borrow for our session.
Are siblings and pets welcome?
YES!! My sessions involve the whole family. If your pets want to cooperate then the more the merrier! If grandparents are visiting, they are welcome to join in some photos at the end of our session too!
Claire did an absolutely amazing job with our newborn photos. It was such a calming experience having the photos done at our house. Claire put us all at ease, and the final output is perfect!

Our most precious photos of our little one were taken by Claire. What makes her a special photographer in my mind is her patient and calm approach, the connection she is able to make with kids (they love her!) and her knack for capturing those perfect moments or expressions (the photos of our baby's sleep smile or him sticking his tongue out at us immediately come to mind). Thanks again Claire!

Sumbul & Sanjay
Claire took some absolutely beautiful photos of our new family. She has such a lovely way with little ones and is so patient, relaxed, gentle and she really took her time with us to take some beautiful pictures. She also has an amazing eye, she really is very creative and can work with whatever space you have available to create intimate, natural photos (we have a tiny 2 bedroom in the city, so I was initially a little worried that we didn’t have the “right” setting for beautiful photos, but she took absolutely gorgeous photos, both inside and outside of our home).
She is extremely service-oriented as it was clear that main goal was to make sure we were comfortable and really happy with the photos she took, which we were. Also, her packages are well priced and are flexible, so that we were able to get exactly what we wanted. We had a lovely experience with Claire and we absolutely can’t wait to do another photo shoot with Claire as our family grows!!

Claire captured some really special moments for our family during a maternity family session in a beautiful park as well as a newborn session at our home. She is incredible to work with, really bringing out the personalities in our children. Plus, she has a great personality which made our photo sessions really fun! For all these reasons I highly recommend Claire!

Claire is the best! We love the photos of our daughter! I was a bit apprehensive about a newborn session since it's such a stressful time, but she made everything relaxed and easy. Highly recommended!
