Newborn Photography

Your newborn photography session

There is nothing more magical than a newborn baby. Those tiny fingers and toes, that sweet little nose, and those smooth, soft cheeks–it’s a stage of your child’s life that you’ll want to treasure forever, but which, sadly, will pass all too quickly. And between feedings and changings, it might all become a hazy blur for you and your partner. That’s where I come in—to capture beautiful, timeless newborn photography that can be treasured forever.

I use a moment-focused photography style that captures your baby as authentically and naturally as possible. Ideally, I will travel to your home, where both you and your baby feel the most comfortable and safe. And while I am happy to incorporate any props or accessories you may want to use, I prefer to take organic, non-posed photos that showcase your baby just as he or she is naturally. These authentic “slice-of-life” memories will become treasured keepsakes that remind you of the moments you shared together.

As a young mother, I understand how quickly these moments go by and how exhausting it can all be. I hope not to just be your newborn photographer, but a friend who can share the joy of new parenthood with you.

Newborn photography sessions

I offer two types of newborn photography sessions to accommodate your busy schedule and budget.

** CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE** “Fresh 48” Postpartum Photoshoot – A one-hour session performed within the first two days of your child’s birth, either at home or in the birthing facility. This is a great opportunity to capture your child’s very first few days of life.

Standard Newborn Photography Session – These sessions are typically done within the first two weeks of baby’s life. To reduce the baby’s exposure to germs and cold, I prefer to hold the session at your home. Pets, other children and additional family members are welcome.


I require a free, 30-minute consultation session prior to all newborn photography shoots. During this time, we will discuss costs, your needs, and paperwork. It is ideal for both you and your partner to be present during our meeting.

Booking & Payment

You may book your newborn photography session any time after your initial consultation. However, due to high demand, I ask that you book at least one month before your due date.

I require a deposit for all newborn photography sessions upon booking. Your remaining balance will be due seven days prior to your session.

Plan for your newborn photography session to last upwards of three hours. This is simply because babies have accidents, get hungry, or simply need to nuzzle into momma for a bit. I will also take time to test light readings and bond as much as I can with your baby. My goal is to make the session as gentle and non-scary as possible—no loud camera flashes, unfamiliar props, or forced poses.

Thank you so much for considering me to be your newborn photographer. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
