Moody Winter Newborn Session | Anchorage Newborn Photographer | Moss and Myrrh Photography

The biggest compliment I can get is when another local photographer refers clients to me because they aren’t able to take that session on themselves. My sweet friend Lauren, of Lauren Roberts Photography (check her out, especially her wedding work!), sent this sweet family my way and ah, so grateful. Their home was cozy, moody, and they had a Corgi to boot!

I say that my work is a mixture of documentary and lifestyle. A little bit of “posed” (hey, sit here and look at your baby) and a little bit of documenting the rawness that is having a newborn. Newborns are on their own schedule and shooting in a client’s home gives us the freedom to really be flexible. Honestly? Half the session I’m sometimes just sitting on the floor waiting for baby to finish eating, pooping, or having a complete meltdown. Of course I shoot that too, but I’m also 100% okay with going with the flow and sometimes that means sitting on your floor loving on your dog.

Enjoy. <3

From Two to Three

I “met” Brooke on Instagram a couple of years ago. They lived a beautiful life in Juneau and I drooled over how ridiculous all of her pictures were. They eventually ended up moving this way though and I was so excited when she booked me for their newborn session. I’m sucker for neutral tones and minimal decor. I love chaos but I also love balance and sessions like this give me that. I can’t stress this enough, when you book a session with me you will NOT get what you see in other sessions I post. Every session is unique and it’s own. The tones you use, your decor, your personalities, all of those things inspire me when editing your session and the end result is something that is completely yours. << THAT is what sets lifestyle newborn sessions apart from posed newborn.

Your home. Your clothes. Your personalities. Your session.

Baby Milly | Anchorage Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Moss and Myrrh Photography

Seriously, fell in loooooove with this family. When I walked into their house I couldn't get over all the sweet detailed wood pieces through out. Everything was unique and clearly handmade. Turns out little Milly has some super talented parents, they're the owners of Moose Be Rustic! If you're in need of a gorgeous custom sign or wood piece, you definitely need to get in touch with them.

In other news, Milly is pretty dang cute herself, eh? This session was booked with the A Piece of You Collection, so a mini newborn session essentially. Turns out I can't even cull down a "mini" session to a logical amount of images because their gallery was HUGE. I really need help..haha! 

Enjoy some sweet pictures of a very hungry/grumpy/adorable tiny Milly. <3 

Baby M | In Home Newborn Photographer | Anchorage, Alaska

Ahh, this session..my heart. This was originally supposed to be a Fresh 48 but the weather prevented me from getting there on time and in the end, we opted to do an in home newborn session. I'm not going to lie, I'm SO glad we went this route. Their home was a neutral heaven and as you've heard me say about 10,000x, shooting in home makes my heart explode every single time. This doesn't even begin to show how many pictures were in this gallery, but I HAD to narrow it down. Ha!

This session is all neutrals, sweet cuddles, a cute dog, and an adorable big brother..a few of my favorite things. <3 

Have your own little due and want to book a session? I've got room for a few more summer sessions!

A Piece of You | A Mini Newborn Collection

I've been playing with the idea of bringing in a smaller collection for awhile now. I love being all inclusive. I LOVE sending home huge galleries, but also know that not everyone can afford packages that include those huge galleries. I know that I'm restricting others (that love my work) from being able to get a few of their own gorgeous pictures by only offering two big packages. So, I'm throwing in a new collection just for the newborns!

This collection includes a 30 minute session in your home within 3 weeks of baby being born. Normally my sessions last around 1.5 to 2 hours, so this is REALLY cutting it down. I expect these sessions to be a lot more raw and mostly just cuddling in bed shots. Simple, yet a beautiful way to capture your new bond. We are WINGING it with this collection. If baby is cranky and wants to nurse, you're getting pictures of a baby on your boob or chugging bottles. Honestly? Those are my favorite. Ha! I know some people don't want that though, so I'm just trying to be transparent. My work isn't very posed as is, but you get the idea. 

Each client that books will be sent an online gallery to choose 5 digital images (with print release) out of a minimum of 15. Let's be real, there will probably be 30+ because I have an issue with deleting pictures. You've been warned! If you absolutely cannot choose which 5 you're wanting, you will have the option of purchasing the entire gallery, but that's not required.

As always, I like to be transparent with my pricing, so there's no need to have to email me to get all the details. 

A Piece of You will be $325 and that includes the session + 5 digital images of your choice. If you see your gallery and absolutely CANNOT let those images go, you can purchase the entire set for $150.

The $325 session fee is due at the time of booking because these are such a steal. They're half of the regular fee, so this is a dang good deal! << Look at me rhyming!
