I recommend booking your newborn session in the second trimester, the sooner the better! I only accept a limited number of sessions per month to ensure I can fully serve my clients.

There is nothing in this world quite like a newborn baby! Capturing your baby's newness, their precious newborn details, how perfectly they fit into your arms and those first family portraits is my absolute passion. The absence of loudness in my work, free from distracting backgrounds and trendy props and poses, allows for the focus to be on your growing family. 

My studio is light and airy and simplistic to match my photographic style, it is also spacious and comfortable so that you can feel right at home. I have light refreshments and snacks, a private dressing room, plenty of space to comfortably feed or nurse your baby and WiFi for dads and/or siblings. 

I provide a thoughtful and luxurious portrait experience for the busy, sentimental new mom that allows you to focus on the moment rather than the details and stress of planning. The expansive studio wardrobe has so many beautiful options for you to utilize for your session, no need to waste any time trying to find something to wear. On the day of your session you get to show up and let me take care of the rest! 

Let's create a memorable experience documenting one of the most precious times in your family's lives

My complimentary consultation can be done over the phone, FaceTime or in-person at the studio. Coming to my studio allows you to see everything in person including my client wardrobe and props, learn about my safety and infection control policies and allows time for all of your questions.

start to finish

the process

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION? 

As soon as possible! I take a limited number of due dates per month so I can serve my clients well. Most clients book early in their second trimester. 

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BABY? 

Newborn sessions are in the first 3 weeks of life, however I take into consideration any special circumstances or needs such as a NICU stay, prolonged recovery, circumcision, etc. It is best to stagger the newborn session and circumcision a week apart if possible. I can accommodate newborn sessions for babies up to 6 weeks with some modifications. Newborn sessions are typically on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at my studio.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A NEWBORN SESSION? 

Newborn session fee is $250. Collections of digital images + print credit are purchased separately after the session. Please contact me for detailed pricing information or to schedule a consult where I can go over the client investment and answer any questions you may have! 

DO YOU SELL JUST THE DIGITAL IMAGES? 

All of my collections include a number of digital images and a print credit. In my experience, most don't know what to do with just the digital images. It is my job to show you what archival, heirloom prints and unique artwork looks and feels like when you come into my studio so that after the session you have a better idea of how you will spend the print credit. 

DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS ON BOOKING MULTIPLE SESSIONS? 

YES! Sessions can be done individually or combined with a big discount by joining my exclusive Baby's First Year membership. If you plan to do more than one session between maternity and baby's first birthday the membership is what I recommend because of the savings and VIP perks! 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS? 

Absolutely! I realize that a luxury portrait experience is a big investment that many clients will budget and save up for. I can assure you that you will never regret an investment that is preserving these memories of your family. Please contact me so we can further discuss a payment plan that fits your needs. 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON THE DAY OF THE SESSION?

Newborn sessions take place on weekday mornings in my private studio. You can expect to sit back and relax while I do the newborn portion of the session, utilizing a purposeful baby-led workflow where your baby's safety and comfort is my top priority. There is a spacious sitting area with snacks and refreshments, simple toys and activities for little ones as well as a private bathroom and dressing room. Typical sessions are about 2 hours, I always leave plenty of room for feeding, soothing and snuggling! 

IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?

Hair and makeup is not included in the session fee, however there is an amazing professional hair and makeup artist available at the studio. I strongly encourage all new moms add on this service to feel pampered and beautiful as well as have that extra 'wow factor' in your final images. Then, on the day of the session, you can show up in PJ's with a clean face and hair and let us do the rest! 

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

I have curated a wardrobe collection of beautiful, flattering gowns for new moms. You are more than welcome to bring any wardrobe items of your own as well! Wardrobe is the most important part so we work closely together in planning your session and ensuring that you feel confident and beautiful. There is also wardrobe options for dads and siblings that you are more than welcome to use. You will receive a prep-guide prior to the session with favorite shops, personal styling tips and suggestions on colors and prints that I have found photograph best. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SESSION? 


A sneak peek (or two!) will be posted on my social media pages within one week of the session. About 2 weeks after, you will receive a custom slideshow and preview gallery of all fully retouched images from the session. After viewing the slideshow you will choose from three collections of digital images + print credit. Once purchased, included number of digital images are available for immediate download. The online shop will open where you can browse the beautiful artwork selections such as heirloom albums, photo gifts, fine-art prints and custom framing  to utilize your print credit.
