In-home Newborn Session

Family, Milestone

Baby Lily


When I first met Heather at Starbucks she had the warmest smile with the quick sarcastic wit. We worked mornings together and we quickly became friends. Heather was always there for a listening ear, thoughtful words and a helping hand. A couple of years ago, when I was first getting into photography, I wanted to explore newborn photography. I needed a newborn backdrop setup and I found a DIY PVC pipe backdrop online. I recruited Heather to come to Home Depot with me and gather all the supplies – it came together perfectly.

When I got the call from Heather that she was PREGNANT and wanted me to do her newborn photos, I was over the moon! We decided on an intimate in-home lifestyle session. It was all about that afternoon sunlight, couch snuggles and baby toes for little Lily. She was only 19 days old when we met and I can’t wait to share these images with her when she’s 19 years old.

One thing I love about lifestyle sessions is that I get to feel a part of the family. I am lounging on the couch and sharing the same laughs with you. Some of my clients expressed that they don’t have a perfect home and that they are worried. One thing I do is clear out an area or two of your home and focus our photos in those areas. I am looking for the best light, minimal distractions and somewhere cozy. Your home doesn’t have to be perfect for me – because it’s already perfect for your family.

Meet Michelle


I specialize in inclusive wedding photography for all. I went from being engayged to being a Fresno Wedding Photographer when I couldn't find any photographers locally who held my same values.  

Fueled by equal parts coffee and passion,  I believe your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. I believe in real moments and genuine connection. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. 

And I can't wait to get to know you!

I’m Michelle Gunn
