“We’ve been working with Kim since our daughter was 7 days old and she has helped us to beautifully and artistically capture our first year as a family. She never failed to please us…” —Betsy R.

Capture your baby’s entire first year in photographs with the Cherish Baby Portrait Program..
The photos from your newborn session will reflect the wonder and beauty of the little human you’ve brought into the world, and the world you’ve brought him or her into. Natural and authentic photos with a palette of neutrals. All the family is there welcoming the baby home.
A combination of posed and lifestyle shots will give you a wide range of images to remember this special time in the life of your family. Hats and props are wonderful, as long as they don’t distract from the baby. What you will want to remember is the baby—the soft skin, the fuzzy head, the tiny fingers—not the outfit.

When you have a new baby, things are bound to feel like chaos, I know all too well. During your portrait session with me, you’ll have time to relax and take a break (maybe even a nap!) in your own home. While you’re relaxing, I’ll take great care with the most important person in your life.
And, don’t worry—you don’t have to clean up your home! I don’t judge. I know how to ever-so-gently push the pile of laundry out of the frame. The number one comment I hear once a new mom has seen the images for the first time is “I cannot believe that you did all this in our living room!”
Having photographed hundreds of newborns over the years has given me a lot of experience to draw from. That, combined with my early career managing photo sessions and raising two children of my own, gives me a solid base of knowledge to handle anything babies (or adults!) can throw at me. With a little perseverance, good humor, and few tricks, I’ll create timeless images that you will treasure forever.
