Let's face it, your newborn is only small for so long. Soon you will only have these memories to look back on.
I'll capture your little one just as he/she is as well as the small details - from tiny toes to their flaky skin. These sessions are for babies between 10-20 days old.

Your ordering appointment will happen about 1-2 weeks after your session. Here you will have a chance to view your proofs and order your products.
When should I book?
I only take on 4-6 newborn sessions per month so it's best to reach out as soon as possible! Please know that last minute openings may also be available - so please don't hesitate to ask!
How old should baby be?
My sweet spot for documenting your baby is around 2 weeks old, as they are the sleepiest and are still quite flexible from being in the womb. If you have missed that window, we can still capture beautiful newborn pictures but we will focus more on wrapped poses and you may not get as many poses as a true newborn would. I have successfully completed several sessions for babies three weeks old all the way up to six weeks.
How long is an average session?
Because we are working on your little one's schedule sessions can vary in length but on average they take about 3 hours. I take breaks when your little one needs to feed.
Where will the session take place?
Sessions will take place in my home studio located in Land o Lakes, FL. Unfortunately I do not travel for newborn sessions as a lot of equipment, props and items are needed.
Do I need to bring anything?
I have a studio filled with props, backdrops, wraps, hats and headbands. You're welcome to bring pieces that are special to your family though!
How long will it take to get my photos?
Your ordering appointment will take place within 1-2 weeks of the session. Here you will view your proofing gallery and decide on which images and products you love!
