Don’t miss out on images of your baby’s earliest days. Blink and you'll miss it.
Between being post-partum and adjusting to life with a newborn, you may feel overwhelmed.
Because of this, it can be really easy to tell yourself a newborn session just isn’t worth the hassle and you can just take some pictures yourself when you get home.
Don’t sell this precious moment short!
I wish there was an option for more than 5 stars! Melinda took her time with our fussy 2-week old and got some amaaazzzziiinnnggg photos!! I am so thankful for her patience and for her incredible talent. I would HIGHLY recommend using her for your photos!

You’re not at a fancy restaurant. I work with small children on a daily basis and know the various temperaments they bring. Not only should you not stress about bringing your other children- I want you to! I have intentionally created a small play area for them to entertain themselves in (new-to-them toys are always the best toys!) and you are encouraged to bring along any additional toys or electronics you think will help hold their attention. The family photographs at this time are usually some of the most precious and shouldn’t be missed!
I get it.
Very few mothers feel they look their best just days after giving birth and it may seem easier to only worry about the baby when planning your session.
Don’t be the mother that looks back and realizes they are noticeably missing from most of their child’s early pictures. You are a valued and essential part of your newborn’s life.
It may feel like extra work, but with the help of my client closet, you can achieve a look that is not only effortless (you just show up and we will pick out what suits you best for the session!) but will also be reflected beautifully in your final photographic art.
You will receive gorgeous, poignant photographs of you and your new baby, as well as additional images with the rest of the immediate family if desired.
These are the photographs that not only show how cute your precious baby is, but most importantly the all consuming love they’re showered with now that they’re in your world.
In this, not every newborn photographer is equal. Do your research before hiring someone “cheaper” who may not have the proper knowledge and experience. Less is definitely not more in this case.
Even after extensive training and 10+ years of photographing hundreds of babies, keeping up to date on how to safely pose newborns with some of the top newborns photography educators in the United States is still a priority. Your baby will only be put in the safest and most natural poses while still getting a perfect shot.
To further increase baby’s safety, an assistant for your newborn’s session will be present to provide an extra set of eyes and hands if needed.
A newborn’s safety should never be taken lightly. Top priority is given to providing an environment that makes both mom and baby comfortable.

A boutique photography session full of pampering and relaxation.
You want to have your newborn appointment scheduled for your baby's first 2 weeks (day 5-14). Ideally schedule your session while you’re still in the hospital to give you one less thing on your plate when you get home. Sessions are easiest in this window but we can do it as late as 3 months if needed.
Newborn sessions typically take 2-3 hours. There is plenty of time for feeding and snuggling.
This is a full service, boutique photography experience. I keep repeating it because it’s true- you just have to show up! There is a client closet full of outfits, props and comfort items to make sure you, your infant (and any siblings) have anything you may need.
Neutral, organic props are my specialty. Every session will also have tailored setups to choose from depending on color of choice or size of baby. All textiles are purchased from cruelty-free handmade vendors only.
Your baby guides the session. Go with what makes them happy. Pose they don’t like? Try a new one. Cranky? There’s plenty of time built in to give them the love and comfort they may need at the moment. There’s also a baby shusher, vibrating mat and low lighting to help the baby stay calm and happy.
Don't worry, you’re not at a fancy restaurant. I work with small children on a daily basis and know the various temperaments they bring. I have created a small play area for them to entertain themselves in (new-to-them toys are always the best toys!) and you are encouraged to bring along any additional toys or electronics you think will help hold their attention.

The greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy and joyful memories
