Newborn Sessions

Create lasting memories of your baby’s first days.

Embrace The Purest Moments of Your Baby's Early Days & Hold Them Close to Your Heart Forever.

Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! A newborn photography session is a wonderful way to capture those fleeting moments of your newborn baby’s life. During the first few weeks, your baby will change and grow so quickly, and a newborn session will allow you to capture those precious moments and memories that will fondly look back on.

To ensure that I can accommodate your newborn session, it’s recommended that you book in advance, ideally during your pregnancy. I will block off time before and after your due date, providing flexibility to schedule your session once your baby arrives. Once baby is here, send me a message and we will solidify a day that is best for you!

Arizona's Traveling Studio Photographer

As a traveling studio photographer, I offer the convenience of bringing the studio to your home. You can relax and enjoy your newborn session in the comfort of your own space, without the stress of travel or leaving the house. Plus, all the essentials you need are close at hand, making for a comfortable and convenient experience.

Another benefit? No need to worry about keeping older siblings entertained in a studio for hours. Once their photos are done, they can play and relax in the familiar surroundings of your home. I’d say that is a win! Contact me today to book your home-based newborn photography session and experience the ultimate convenience!

The Process

Book

This is where we'll lock in the details for your upcoming shoot. We'll chat about your vision, color schemes and props as well as anything else we need to make this session a great experience!

Prep

Once you've booked, I'll provide you with some tips and suggestions to help you prepare. This will include outfit suggestions, newborn prep guide, and helpful other tips.

Shoot

This is where the magic happens! We'll chat, laugh and goggle over your baby, and of course, capture amazing memories! I will guide you and your family through poses - don't worry!

Edit

After the shoot, I'll go through all the photos we took and select the best ones for editing. I'll carefully retouch each image to ensure they look their absolute best while still maintaining their natural beauty.

Deliver

I'll deliver your photos digitally, so you can relive the memories over and over again. You'll be able to share them with your friends and family and print them to your heart's content. Get ready to show off your photos!

Behind the Scenes From Start to Finish

The editing process for newborn photography requires special attention to detail to ensure that your baby looks their best. During the editing process, I will carefully review each image to ensure that your baby’s skin looks smooth and flawless, and that any minor blemishes or distractions are retouched. I will also adjust the lighting and color balance to create a soft and gentle look that is perfect for newborn photography. The editing process for newborn photography can take longer than other types of photography due to the care and precision required to create beautiful, timeless images that you will cherish for years to come. Rest assured that I will take great care in editing your newborn photos to ensure that they are of the highest quality and that you are thrilled with the final result.

Newborn Photography Pricing

Once baby arrives, it is recommended that the photography session occurs within the first two weeks of life, as it is easier to pose your baby into those sweet little positions and when baby is most sleepy. If your little one is older than that timeframe, no worries! It’s still possible to capture beautiful photos!

Frequently Asked Questions

To ensure that you secure a spot for your newborn photography session, I recommend booking as early as possible. My calendar fills up quickly, and I only take a limited number of sessions each month to leave space for babies that arrive earlier or later than their anticipated due date. If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to send me an email to check availability and reserve your spot!

I provide everything needed for your newborn photography session, so you don’t have to worry about bringing anything. I have a wide variety of headbands, wraps and props available to use, and I always style each session individually based on your preferences. My photography style is minimal, neutral, and simple, but I welcome your input on color choices. If there is something specific you would like to include in the session, such as a handmade blanket, heirloom items, sports memorabilia, or military/law enforcement items, please let me know in advance so that I can prepare for it. I always do my best to incorporate special items into the session to make it truly unique and personalized.

Please allow up to four weeks to return your gallery. 

Newborn photography sessions can take longer than other types of photo shoots due to the need for frequent soothing and care of the baby. Typically, these sessions will last a minimum of 2-3 hours. I prioritize the baby’s comfort and safety above all else, and will never rush the session or force the baby into poses that are uncomfortable. I allow for plenty of breaks and take as much time as needed to ensure that the baby is happy and content throughout the session.

For newborn photography sessions, I typically schedule them to take place between 6-16 days after the baby is born. This is because during this time, babies are more likely to be sleepy and easier to pose, resulting in more beautiful and polished photos. However, if your baby is older than this timeframe, there is no need to worry. I can still capture stunning photos! I will just have a different approach with older babies.

After you schedule your newborn photography session, I will add your due date to my calendar to tentatively plan around it. If your baby is born earlier or later than expected, there is always room to adjust the schedule accordingly. Once your baby is born, I kindly request that you notify me as soon as possible, so we can coordinate a definite date and time for the session that works best for you and your baby.

 

To secure your spot on my calendar for your newborn photography session, I kindly request a retainer fee of $100. As I only take a limited number of sessions each month to allow for flexibility in accommodating babies that arrive early or late, this retainer ensures that your due date is reserved. The remaining balance for the session is due the day of your session, and I accept both cash and credit card payments.
