Hello Friend! How can I help?

Newborn Photo Sessions can be something that is stressful. I am here to help you by giving some tips that will hopefully make the process easier and help you all look amazing. You can always email or text me and ask any questions before your session.



THe Process

Booking your Session

First things first, you'll need to book your appointment. Your session should be scheduled anytime between 48 hours after your baby is born to 2 weeks. It is best to book your session ahead of time, try scheduling a tentative date when you are in your 3rd trimester, then once the baby is born, confirm with your photographer. When scheduling, talk to your photographer about your vision.

Preparing for your session

Before your appointment be sure to keep your baby awake for a while. This will insure those sweet, sweet sleepy baby photos. Try feeding baby 20-30 minutes before your session, this will help them fall asleep easier and be less fussy. Collect all the outfits, and anything else significant and set them aside. This will help the photographer to have everything laid out. Also make sure to prepare a bottle just incase.

During your session

Alright mama, this is your time to sit back and relax! I like to start with just baby, this gives you time to chill out. After I like to involve the family for lifestyle photos. Down below I will include some tips on how to best dress for your first family photos.

I know this might seem intimidating right after birth, but let me assure you, you won't regret it!

after your session

After your session you will receive a few sneak peeks to get you excited about what is to come. Later that evening or the next day your will receive your gallery to chose your photos for editing. Once chosen you will receive your photos one to two weeks later. You will receive high-resolution digitals, the best quality for printing.

Below are tips for outfits for baby and family

quick look

Solid Colors

Neutral Colors

Lighter Colors

Minimal Patterns

I Recommend:

Light Neutral



Light Pinks

Light Blues, Teals and Greens




Dark Neutrals


Rich Black

Rich Browns

Dusty, or Rich Greens

These colors will result in more of a light and natural look, and add style and class to your images.
These colors photograph soft and intimate!

  • For baby I highly recommend swaddles. Most newborn outfits (even when labeled newborn) can look frumpy and big on baby.
  • If you go for newborn outfits, please be sure they fit (try them on before).
  • A naked baby is a cute baby!
  • For Momma, wear something comfortable! You just gave birth, you deserve to be comfortable. I recommend flowy dresses or oversized sweaters.
  • Focus more on textures rather than patterns.

Again! You can always run your outfit ideas past me if you are unsure!

The goal is COORDINATING outfits instead of MATCHING!

Alright mamas, I know it can be difficult to step away from that sweet precious little nugget! But rest assured I am more than capable of taking care of them. I have been a nanny, preschool teacher and in hospital newborn photographer. I have been trained to handle babies from hours after birth, and am also infant CPR certified. I love snuggling with the little ones.

What to avoid

  • Avoid both of you wearing white tops. White is fine as long as only one of you is wearing.
  • Guys, I recommend that you avoid patterns that are smaller than a dime! These small patterns can create strange visual effects in a digital camera.
  • Please don't wear graphic tees or tennis shoes!
  • Avoid both of you wearing any print or pattern. Sweaters with texture are fine! If one of you would prefer to war a subtle print, please make sure it's paired with solid colors, and not another print.
  • Avoid neon colors, and be very careful with red, orange, yellow, and bright blue tones.

Things to lay out

  • Swaddles and Wraps
  • White sheets
  • Any outfits
  • Get a bottle ready
  • Boppy Pillow

I'm so excited to photograph your Newborn session! I hope you are getting excited too.
