I offer two options for newborn sessions.


Babies grow and change in the blink of an eye.
Before you know it you will be wondering how you ever held them in the palm of your hand.



My family sessions are all about those natural moments and snuggles.
While I will guide you and give direction, these sessions are not about posing and saying cheese.
You will still get baby-only images, but in a natural way - baby stretching in their crib, detail shots of those little toes or lips, or letting out a big yawn in your arms.
This sessions can be held in your home or outdoors in warmer months.

  • Approximately 60-90 minutes

  • Choice of location

  • Use of my client closet of dresses for mom if desired

  • Approximately 25 final edited images

  • Image box with 4x6 print of each final image


Baby Only

My baby-only sessions are sweet and simple.
I love creating the first breathtaking image of your baby,
but I also remember as a new mom I didn’t want to sit in a studio for 3 hours.
For my sessions I love to take a simple & beautiful color palette and create a stunning image for you.
Because of the simplicity I am able to hold these sessions in-studio, outdoors in warm months, or even in the comfort of your own home.
