From small beginnings come great things...

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 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 keep a stock of essentials on hand that may be needed during your session including diapers, wipes, lotions, hand sanitizer and more. No worries if something is forgotten in the diaper bag!




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.
