Newborn Session

Info & Investment

My love of photography truly blossomed the first time I photographed a newborn. From their peely fingers to the milia you often see on their little noses. It was all part of this moment in time that in just a few days would never look the same again, and I wanted to capture all of it. 

I know first hand how much you forget and how much simply goes unnoticed between the sleepless nights, first doctors appointments, figuring out the whole breastfeeding thing and everything else that takes precedence over you truly just taking in this beautiful life you created.

I have put a lot of thought and care into creating a newborn session experience that exceeds all your expections. Your newborn session will be a core memory and your portraits will be a memory keeper that you cherish forever.

The Experience

I have been photographing newborns in my own portrait studio since 2015, and before that out of my house and in clients homes. Continued education is important to me, so I have taken workshops (both online and in person0 to learn the latest techniques and safety in posing, with my most recent workshop taking place in January of 2023. I employ an assistant in the studio so that at no point during your session does your baby not have eyes/hands nearby. 

I understand that clients have so much on their plate during this season of life, so I run my studio and sessions with that in mind. I have everything needed for your newborn session…backdrops, headbands, bonnets, wraps, props and more! Parents are able to sit back and relax, perhaps for the first time since you’ve left the hospital, while I take care of all of the details!  I have even partnered with a talented local MUA who can meet you at the studio to pamper you as well if you plan to be photographed along with your little one.
