Brand new, super sweet and the smallest they will ever be




Studio Newborn Session



This 2-4 hour studio session takes place in my cozy home studio. We focus on capturing the natural beauty of your newborn while they are at their newest and smallest. The ideal time for this is between 7-14 days old and up to 30 days old. After 14 days most babies start to lose their flexibility and often don’t sleep as deep as they once did. To ensure availability in those first 2 weeks, please book early (preferably well before the baby is born).

With a warm studio and a baby with a full belly, we will get to work creating some wonderful art with your little one.  

Once you are booked in, I will send you a questionnaire to help me plan a session just for you as well as the Newborn Session Prep Guide with tons of tips to help ensure that we have the most success possible. I have taken many courses on newborn photography and safety.

Your baby’s safety & comfort is always my first priority. 


Included is:

Pre-session planning

Newborn Session guide

Time needed, typically between 45-90 mins

Immediate family included

Hand-edited images 

Your favorite 20 high-res digital images in both color and b&w

Digital download from a private online gallery of 30+ images to choose from

Photographers time, talent, training and 10 years experience


Each and every photo is hand edited to my high standards.

In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session



This lifestyle session is approx. 2-3 hours and is done in the comfort of your own home. Documenting this special time in the space that you live in, giving these images so much more meaning to you and your family.

With this one, we are not spending time trying to get baby to sleep in props and poses like we are in the studio session. We mainly use your home as the backdrop and we capture your baby snuggled by family, interacting with each other, in their crib or where they sleep etc.


We will capture sweet portraits of your baby on their own, little details as well as special moments with family. Common areas in your home that we use are the living room (couches chairs etc), near windows, master bedroom, and the nursery if you have one. The main thing here is I don’t bring my studio to you and we won’t be using props. Instead, we are capturing memories and moments with your brand new baby with their family, in their very first home.

Here is a blog post with more information on how to prepare for an in-home session.

With all my Newborn sessions, if I feel like we didn’t get enough images for you, I will gladly have you come back on another day and try again. It happens sometimes, we try all the tricks and baby is just not having it. They may have an upset tummy, they are overtired or cluster feeding. Not to worry, I keep my schedule open enough to accommodate times like these.
