Posed newborn photo session in-studio is a styled type of session with use of gentle props and variety of poses designed around your vision and taste.

The best time to book your session is in the third trimester before your little one is born. This way I can save a day on my calendar and accommodate styling preferences. I only take a limited amount of sessions per week to allow maximum creativity . Let’s make sure I have your session on the calendar before the birth so that you don’t have to think about it once the baby is here.

Your due date will be your approximate session day until the baby is born. Once the baby is here just let me know in a timely manner and we will pick a date that is suitable for both of our schedules. Sessions can be scheduled Monday-Friday. Weekend availability is limited to 2 weekends per month.

I prefer for babies to be between 5 and 21 days of age to achieve all those curly sleepy poses you see on my website. Time got away and your baby is older than 3  weeks? No problem, I have a lot of experience photographing older newborns up to 6 weeks of age.

I offer 3 different packages. For full pricing information, go here…
