From small beginnings come great things...

When I first opened Lori Mason Photography, it was my dream to create a studio atmosphere that was something special. A little bit of home away from home. The 1200 sq. ft. professional baby studio is located through a separate entrance in what was once an in-law suite of our home and has all the conveniences you would expect. I provide everything baby may need during your session including diapers, wipes, lotions, hand sanitizer and more.

I offer a huge selection of high end, custom handmade props; hats/bonnets, headbands, wraps and oh so bitty outfits. I carefully select only the best pieces and pride myself on always keeping it fresh. Everything I use is soft and comfortable on baby's skin - only the best for your child.

A comfy sofa provides parents room to relax while being just steps from your little one. An adjacent full kitchen provides hot and cold beverages and snacks for your convenience. WIFI is available as well. Your comfort is as important to me as your baby's.

Newborn and baby safety are my number one priority in the studio. I take great pride in being an expert in baby safety and posing. Your little one is never put in an unsafe pose - composites are done to obtain some poses, ie: dreamcatcher, moon prop, head on hands, etc. Props are washed after each use and the studio is cleaned and sanitized after each session.

I am honored to be given the opportunity to document your little one's very first portraits. These are the images that will be treasured for years to come and will beautifully chronicle your family's history.




Newborn sessions ideally take place when baby is under two weeks old. It is during this time that I am able to capture those sweet, curled up, sleepy images. With that being said, I have never turned away a newborn due to age. Older newborns are more alert and simply may need to be posed differently. Preemies are almost always way past the two week mark, so please do not hesitate to inquire due to age.

All newborn sessions take place in my studio and take between 2-3 hours (depending on baby) and include 4-5 setups.

You have the option of choosing a Simply Newborn session that is for baby only, or a Premier Newborn session that would include parents and siblings.


All-Inclusive Collections include fully retouched high resolution digital images with a print release.

Simply Newborn Collections start at $335.

Premier Newborn Collections start at $395.
