The First Year

Newborns and babies are so near and dear to my heart. Not only are they as cute as can be, but from the day they are born, all the way to their first birthday, they are changing and learning so much. For that exact reason, I am so passionate about capturing their milestones.

Newborn sessions are so special for many reasons. Those sweet lips, tiny toes, and dainty fingers, never cease to melt my heart. With all of the new changes that a new mom and dad go through in the first days with a new baby, I want to make the newborn session as simple and relaxing as possible.

With that said, all of the hats, headbands, wraps, and props for the newborn session are handmade by some amazing vendors and provided at the session. When you come to the session, you’ll be able to handpick your favorite sets and color schemes. Often times I get special requests for colors or themes to match a nursery or theme, and I love customizing the session to your favorite color theme!

Since newborns are hard to predict when they will arrive, I only take on a limited number of newborns each month to ensure flexibility to early or late babies. Be sure to contact me now if you have a little one on the way!

Babies are such a joy to watch grow which is why I’ve developed packages with special savings especially for that. Baby plans start at their newborn session and end at their first birthday. There are a handful of reasons why this might be a perfect option for your little one. I have plenty of information about these and other sessions over at my investment page.



Newborns are ideally photographed in the first two weeks, the best time to contact me would be when you are nearing or in your third trimester.

Since we never quite know the exact time of your little ones arrival, I like to put your due date as well as a tentative session date in the calendar so that I keep my schedule open around that time. If baby is early or late, we will most likely move the session around slightly.

Can we take family photos at any of the sessions?

Definitely! Sibling and family photos are included in all sessions even the newborn session!


Only the newborn sessions have to take place at the studio. I do offer sessions throughout the first year. For those sessions, I love personalizing the locations to each client’s desires. I’ve often photographed children and families in homes, at a family or friends farm/property, college campus, local park, apple orchard, or so many other places in the area! It’s your session; so let’s have fun with it!
