Newborn sessions without a doubt take time and patience, with baby's safety being the top priority. Your sweet new baby is ever changing, and as a mother myself I know just how important these first portraits will mean to you. During your session, my promise to you is that your baby will be in the best care. I have many years of experience in pediatrics, and will use all of that to pose, comfort, and handle your newborn safely.
As your little one grows, we can be sure to capture all those firsts in a milestone session. Around 6-7 months your little one will begin sitting up unassisted. Quickly followed by their first birthday - where we're sure to capture them crawling (or running!), plenty of smiles, and eating that celebratory cake!

When is the right time to book our newborn session?
It’s never too early to get on my calendar for your session. I only schedule 2 newborns per week to allow flexibility between your due date and your baby's actual birth date. You will receive a tentative session date for your session at booking, based on your due date. Keep in mind, this date can change based on your baby's birth date. For this reason, it is important to get on my calendar sooner rather than later.
When will my newborn session take place?
Typically, newborn sessions occur within the first 2 weeks of your baby’s life. During this time, your baby will still be sleepy and able to be easily curled up in those adorable snuggled up poses! There's always exceptions, so that newborn window can be extended if needed.
Can I include family & sibling photos in my newborn session?
To put it simply, YES! If you choose to include siblings in your session, we will do these at the beginning of your session. It is best to have a family member or friend bring your other little ones for the first 30 minutes of your session. This keeps the commotion to a minimum for your remaining time, so we can best ensure the sleepy baby poses of your baby individually.
Do you provide props and backdrops?
Yes! I have a large selection or props & backdrops at the studio, as well as hats, headbands, and rompers. You are also welcome to bring in something special from home to incorporate into your session. We'll work together before the session to plan your session themes and colors.
Do you offer cake smashes?
Yes, at booking you're able to choose between an individual newborn session or a first year package. Cake smashes are typically scheduled when your little one is 11-12 months old. After booking, we will begin planning all those fun session details to make your session perfect. A prep guide will be sent at booking and again a few days prior to your session to help you prepare yourself and your little one for the session.
When will we receive our images?
Within a week! We have designed our process to be in your benefit and quickly delivered to you via an online gallery. After your session, you will receive a proofing gallery to choose your images. Once those selections have been made, your final gallery will be edited and sent to you to view, share and download within 48 hours!
