newborn sessions

whether it's your first baby, or tenth, you want to remember those special first days together

Having a baby is one of the most amazing and emotional experiences in your life, and we want to help you remember those first days forever. By having photos taken of your new baby, you can easily taken back to those feelings and emotions.

Our studio provides a safe and comfortable environment for you and your baby as we capture these moments. Our parent area has a fridge filled with bottled water as well as a coffee and tea bar. Our futon folds out to a bed for you to catch up on sleep, or bring your thank you notes to get some work done as your baby is being photographed. 

The best time to photograph your new love is between 5 and 21 days old, while they are still so sleepy and curly. It’s best to book your session in your second trimester, as I only take a limited amount of newborns each month. Once you are ready to book, we’ll tentatively schedule your session for seven days after your due date, and adjust as necessary once baby arrives.

Contact me to schedule a consultation or to get on my calendar for your due date. We’ll go over your goals for the session, colors and poses you love (and those you don’t), and plan your perfect session.

I suggest scheduling your newborn session during your second trimester, as I only take on a limited amount of newborns each month. This assures we have plenty of time to plan for your session, including acquiring any custom props or setups needed. I schedule you for your due date, and then we adjust the date once baby arrives.

Once you are ready to book, we'll speak in person, over the phone or via email to plan the details of your session, including colors, props, clothing choices for parents and siblings, and how to prep baby.

You'll receive a link to a private Client Portal with a What to Wear Guide, prep guide, and more.

We have all the necessary props, wraps, and blankets in the studio, but you are more than welcome to bring any heirlooms or props you'd like to incorporate into your session. Please advise me in advance of anything you plan to bring so that I can plan how best to use it.

My hope is that you'll love your images from our session! Each session comes with a selection of edited digital images (10, 20 or all). If you choose the 10 or 20 image session, you can add images for $15 each or 10 for $125. I don't ever release RAW or unedited images.

Yes, every session comes with a selection of your favorite images along with a print release allowing you to make prints, canvases, announcements, etc. I have suggestions for better consumer labs in your print release. You can also order products directly through me and my professional lab to ensure the highest quality.

Of course! Family and sibling shots can be included in any of the sessions at no additional charge. And I have plenty of tricks to help young siblings enjoy their part in the session. If you schedule a Classic or Deluxe Session, it is usually best to have dad or grandma take the older children home after their part of the session is complete, if possible.
