Welcome to my studio! Here you can get a little peek into my studio space and find out more about my classic newborn sessions….

Nothing is better than snuggling with a new baby and celebrating all their perfect and unique features (and personality) with you!

My newborn sessions have transformed in style in 2017. Prior to 2017, my newborn sessions followed the industry trends of multiple props, bold colors, and exquisite posing (sometimes requiring an extra set of hands and expertise in photoshop). In 2017, my artistic heart craved something different and my mind wanted to pursue images that would stand the test of time and where babies would be the focus, not the props, headbands, or bonnets. I now offer classic newborn sessions, where babies are naturally posed on both white and black fabric. The simplicity of these sessions offer so much more beauty to the images.

Ideally, I start planning your newborn’s session together before your baby arrives. Newborn sessions are best scheduled when babies are under 10 days of age. If you are interested in a newborn session, please contact me today. I book a limited number of sessions monthly so as to provide the best experience and highest quality images for you. When you book your session while still pregnant, your newborn has priority in my schedule based on his/her tentative due date. As you approach your delivery date we will stay in contact with each other to narrow down potential session dates. As you leave the hospital we will finalize your appointment date and time. I do encourage you to not book any doctors appointments on the day of your session in case your session runs longer than expected.

Newborn sessions take place in my comfortable home studio, heated to the perfect (toasty) temperature to keep baby happy and sleepy. I do have a living room and kitchen just adjacent to the studio space, where parents can refill their coffee cups or even fall asleep on the couch. Sessions last approximately two hours long and include the option for posing with parents and siblings.

When you book your session, I will send you a Newborn Preparation Guide to prepare you more on what to expect and how you can prepare yourself and your baby on the morning of your session. After the session, I will hand edit your pictures, which will be conveniently delivered 2-3 weeks in a online gallery. Prints and wooden photo blocks can be ordered if you choose after your gallery is delivered.
