If you’re a new parent, you’re probably overwhelmed with all the decisions you need to make.
However, interviewing a newborn photographer doesn’t have to be one of them. Let me guide you through the process and provide you with all the information you need to capture the early moments of your baby’s life.

Now, let’s delve into some of the most common questions about newborn photography.

“What should I look for when hiring a newborn photographer?”

It’s important to choose a photographer who specializes in the type of newborn photography you are looking for, and has experience working with infants. I have years of experience working with newborns and their families (I mean, I have six kids, including twins!) and I specialize in lifestyle or baby-led newborn photos. Lifestyle means I don’t bring props or position your baby in any unnatural poses. Your baby mostly stays right in your arms where they most want to be. I dedicate myself to ensuring a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable experience for you and your baby because I understand the importance of capturing these early moments. I take pride in creating beautiful, timeless memories that you’ll cherish for years to come.

“What can I expect during a newborn photography session?”

During a newborn photography session, I’ll work to create a comfortable and safe environment for you and your baby, and guide you through the process. I encourage parents, grandparents, and siblings to participate in this special moment. My sessions maintain a very laid-back and stress-free atmosphere. I like to tell my clients that I’m coming over to play!

It is helpful to book your newborn session in your third trimester. I add your due date to my calendar, and then when baby is born you reach out to let me know and we pick a date for your session. I don’t stress over your baby’s age for lifestyle photos. We can schedule asap or a few weeks out, depending on how everyone is feeling.

“Do you bring anything? Do I need to have anything available?”

I don’t usually bring anything except my camera! Occasionally I’ll bring a few extras like a swaddle, but for the most part I want your photos to feature your things. I do ask that you have a swaddle blanket available. If you’d like anything specific in the photos like the blanket grandma knitted for the baby, or a sign with the baby’s birth stats or something along those lines, I am happy to accommodate those!

“When will I get my photos?”

After the session, you can expect to receive the final edited photos within 2-3 weeks. If you choose to add on a custom album, those take an additional 2 weeks after you’ve chosen your favorite images.

“How much does newborn photography cost?”

Newborn photography sessions with me are $525. I know this might seem like a significant investment, but keep in mind that newborn photography is a specialized service. It requires a lot of time, effort, and knowledge. I do offer payment plans, and I can help you add photography to your baby registry if you’d like me to!
I am dedicated to creating high-quality images and products that you will cherish for a lifetime!

So, there you have it! Newborn photography is a wonderful way to capture the early moments of your baby’s life. All you have to do is let me show up! I do my best to take care of all the details.
