The Newborn Experience

"Our newborn session with Sally was a total pleasure from beginning to end. Her calm and patience put me at ease. She had beautiful props and so many great pose ideas. I am in awe over the final edits and love how everything came out." -Tracie

01

Your family and your baby are unique, so your session will be, too!
After we discuss setting the perfect date, we will talk about what you want to do with your portraits. Do you want a gorgeous album? A large canvas above the crib? We will make a perfect plan just for you! 
We will discuss what you and your family should wear so you will all look your best. All of your concerns will be addressed, so you feel comfortable and excited about your session!

02

Your newborn session will be relaxed, calm, and peaceful. I will safely and gently guide your baby into the darling poses we all love. Everything we will need for your baby during the session is here in the studio. You just need to bring food for baby, I have all the rest! Plan for your session to be 2 hours long to allow us time to capture all those precious details!

Each of your photos is carefully and beautifully edited by me. I make sure to take the time to polish them to perfection!
Once they are ready, I invite you back to the studio. You get to see your images for the first time, choose a collection and order your prints.

FAQ's

Q: What do I need to bring to my session?
A: Just your family, and food for baby! The studio has all the props, wraps, headbands that we will need. If you have a special heirloom you want to bring, that is perfectly fine.

Q: Can my husband and kids be in the pictures?
A: Absolutely! Having siblings and parents in the photos is important. These are precious memories we are recording and the whole family is welcome to be a part of it.

Q: When should I reserve my newborn session?
A: The sooner the better! We will schedule you based on your due date, and just know that we may need to adjust the date depending on when baby is born.

Q: How long is a newborn session?
A: Plan for the session to last 2 hours.

Q: How old should my baby be for newborn portraits?
A: It's best to photograph baby between 4-10 days old. If your baby has passed this age, I do happily accept older newborns as well.

Sally is super patient and easy going. She has a great eye for getting the perfect shots!! We just love working with her!

Sally was gentle and calming, and my baby girl looks like a peaceful little sleepy angel in them. If you are on the fence about hiring Sally for your newborn photos I would say absolutely do NOT hesitate! She is amazing with babies and her photos are just gorgeous.
~Tatiana

I was extremely lucky to have come across Sally's website. After viewing her website and beautiful work, I was convinced she was the one to photograph my newborn baby boy. Sally went above and beyond our expectations! Thank you for being patient and gentle with my precious baby.
