studio newborn sessions

 

There is just nothing like the newborn stage. As a mom of three little ones myself, I know all too well how those first weeks fly by in a true blur of sleep deprivation, hormonal highs and lows and so. much. change. As an experienced newborn photographer, you can trust me to capture all the sweet details of your perfect new addition that you won’t want to forget and your first family portraits.

when to schedule

Newborn sessions are booked using your due date as a placeholder in my calendar and are then scheduled as soon as baby is born. These can be booked any time from when you’ve gotten the good news that you’re expecting to when you’re holding your newborn in your arms.
