You may be wondering, “Do I really need to hire a professional to do my newborn’s photoshoot? I can just take pictures of my new baby with my smart phone and they will come out great!” When deciding if hiring a professional to do your newborn shoot is the right choice for your growing family, there are a few things to consider.
POSING, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, & PROPS: A professional photographer will pay close attention to the details. With newborn photography, babies are posed right down to the position of their hands and lips. Blankets are smoothed out. Fabrics are ironed. Background clutter is removed. The time of day and babies’ feeding schedule are taken into consideration. The temperature and ambiance of the room is carefully planned. Every part of the image and your session is carefully planned to ensure that you get the best images possible. There are certain variables that a professional photographer knows how to manipulate to help ensure an easier and more successful session. You also get to access a professional photographers prop collection (such as mine) and won’t have to worry about purchasing your own props.
Lifestyle Newborn Session:
If you decide to go with my lifestyle session, I am able to direct you in choosing the best light in your home and am trained to make suggestions based on what is available.
Styled Newborn Session:
If choosing a styled session, you will have access to many of my safe newborn props, wraps, blankets, and outfits. If you want to include some things of your own, you are welcome to do so too!
The first moments with your new little one are going to be gone in the blink of an eye, and you don’t want to miss an opportunity to have those priceless first moments captured forever. In a few weeks, your newest member of the family will look so different, and you will wish you had those memories.

There’s something about those hospital birthing rooms that bring such a warm fuzzy feeling when you enter them. I could just feel the love that this family shared for this new little life and I am so happy that I was able to be a part of this special time in their lives. Baby Finn was less than 12 hours old when I got to meet him and I must say, he was perfect in every way! I think his big sisters thought so too because they had a little bit of a hard time sharing him during the photos. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this wonderful Fresh 48 Newborn Session!

It has been so fun watching this sweetie grow the past 6 months! I will never forget this particular session because we got SUPER lucky with the weather! Even though it rained right before and right after our session, we got some great photos to document one of my favorite milestone ages! Enjoy a few of my favorites from Miss S’s 6 month session!

Booking a photographer to capture baby’s newborn stage is on the to-do list for many expecting parents, but not all the parents think it needs to be done in advance, before they even deliver the baby. I often get last minute inquiries asking my availability for their newborn baby. Sometimes it is too late to book a newborn session after your baby arrives because I am fully booked at that point. So why book a newborn photography session before your baby arrives?
This is something a lot of new parents ask: How can I even book a session when I don’t even know when the baby is going to arrive? My baby could arrive early or late.” This is of course very true. Unless you will have a scheduled c-section, you won’t know exactly when your baby will arrive.
Here is how my system works to make sure I photograph newborn babies in time for all my booked clients: I take a certain number of due dates per month, with 2 maximum due dates per week. I mark my clients’ due dates on my calendar and once the baby arrives, we will schedule a firm date for the session. I want to make sure all of my clients have the opportunity to get an appointment at the best possible time, which is within the first 2 weeks after birth.
I also want to be able to be flexible for my booked clients. Some clients might need a few more days due to delivery complications. Some babies might need a few more days before their first photo session due to jaundice, for example. I always prioritize my booked clients. Occasionally I will have openings and I will try my hardest to squeeze new clients in if I can. If newborn photography is something that you really want for your family, then I recommend scheduling ahead just in case.
I currently only have one spot left for June, one for July and am fully booked for the month of August. I am now booking for September and October – so if this is where your due date falls and you are interested in learning more about my in-home sessions, contact me today!

I remember when I met this family a year ago; They were one of the many sweet clients that stuck out in my head. Mom and big sister did a “Mommy & Me Mini Session” and we had such a wonderful time. Fast forward to Christmas time and the family came back for minis again – this time with BIG news! They were expecting! I am so honored that I was able to do this sweet little girl’s newborn photos and to get to know the family a little better. It is one of the biggest joys of my profession; watching families grow and being a part of those memories. Please enjoy a few of my favorite photos from Miss Abigail’s newborn session!
