mom with her precious newborn baby during their lifestyle newborn portraits

The Experience

Congratulations on your new baby boy or girl!
Nothing tugs more at our heartstrings than the tiny little newborns we photograph. There is nothing more magical than the birth of a child, and capturing and preserving the tender innocence of your brand new baby is a privilege.

We understand that new parents have many needs and are very busy, especially in those first few days after the birth of a baby. However, one highly recommended event is to have a newborn photography session. We don’t need to tell you how fast children grow from infant to toddler, and then before you know it your child will be getting on the school bus. The moments click by almost as fast as the shutter on our cameras. The first fourteen after you have a baby is the optimal time to schedule your newborn session because your little one will still be sleepy, tiny, and cooperative.

Capture those first few days of your child’s life forever!


The Process


We start with a pre-session consultation where we discuss the vision of your session.  I will help guide you in what to wear and discussing what products will fit your family’s needs best.

I will capture real moments and authentic connections.  I strive to make each session stress-free and something that you and your family will look back on and smile.

Two weeks after your session is when the fun really begins.  I create a custom slideshow for you to watch at the Reveal & Design Session.  After the slideshow, I will help you plan the wall art, album, and fine art that you would like for your home.  This part can be overwhelming which is why I am here to help and that is the main purpose of the Reveal & Design Session.  We will walk around your home and plan your custom art pieces together.  Your family will treasure your portraits for generations.


Jennie came to our home for lifestyle newborn photos of our son. She spent so much time with us capturing his personality and our family in the most beautiful photos. Her expertise didn’t stop there…on our reveal night, she showed us products we could see and feel first hand to make our decision. She’d already put together wall galleries and an album that were so perfectly arranged. Jennie helped my husband and I organize our favorite photos into cohesive galleries and an album to make our final decisions. I have no doubt it would have taken us forever to do something with those gorgeous photos without her help.

This is just dummy text.  Nothing special, just some text that fills a box and reminds you that you need to write your own stuff.  Maybe you want to write about unicorns, or martians, or even the wild west.  I mean, whatever you’re into.  Just as long as it makes sense.  Kind of like this paragraph makes sense.

When should I book my session?

Ideally, it’s best to book your portrait session during your second trimester.  This will ensure that I will have availability in my calendar for your baby’s portraits when he/she arrives.  If choosing a Fresh 48 Hospital session, I will go on call for your birth one week prior to your due date.  If you would like to chat more about a session, you can contact me by clicking here.

What if my baby comes early or late?

Babies like to arrive on their own schedule and so we need to be flexible for when they decide to arrive.  We will choose a tentative date for your session based on your due date, but will definitely be flexible if he/she decides to come a little early or late.  Once you are in labor, have dad or a family member contact me ASAP so we can choose a more definite date.  For Fresh 48 Sessions please let me know as soon as baby has arrived so that we can arrange for me to come to the hospital for photos.


Fresh 48 Hospital sessions are about 45 minutes and Studio/In-Home Newborn sessions typically last around 2-3 hours.  This allows plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, and cuddles.  I will be moving your baby through a variety of poses and his/her safety comes first.  So, I like to take extra time to make sure that your baby is comfortable and content during our session.


Absolutely!  If you have booked the full Fresh 48, or in-home newborn session then siblings and immediate family can definitely be included.  Including your whole family in your newborn’s portraits is the perfect way to document this time your baby’s life.  Studio sessions are for baby only at this time.


Fresh 48 Hospital images are more documentary and therefore I will use hospital onesies and blankets but feel free to bring your own swaddle blanket.



We would love to hear from you, and if you do have any questions at all before booking, please do feel free to give us a call.
