The Newborn Portrait Experience

You found me!! Whether through a Google search, a recommendation from a friend, Facebook or Instagram - I’m so glad you’re here! Hopefully you like what you see and you’re ready to take the next step and book a session for your baby.

How to contact me

The best and fastest way to get more information is to fill out the form on my website here. You’ll get an immediate response, more details about my sessions, FAq’s and pricing.

Phone call & consult

I’ll give you a call within 48 hours of receiving your inquiry so we can have a quick 5 minute chat. I’ll answer any questions and if you’d like, we can schedule a time for you to pop in to the newborn studio and talk details, goals, wardrobe, pricing, and how to make your session amazing. It’s also a great chance for you to come see my sunny little space before the day of our shoot so you’re entirely prepared to sit back and relax during the session. As a mom myself, I well remember the demands of a new baby! If it’s easier for you to have communications over text or email that’s fine too!!

Baby prep email

After paying your retainer your session is officially booked. Once your baby arrives, I’ll send you a detailed email with tips and instructions to prep your baby for our shoot. It includes all the information you need, a timeline, and info on exactly how the session will run. My clients love this helpful guide!

Newborn portrait session

Your session will be fun and relaxing! With my easy-to-follow guide, the big day will be a lot less stressful. After the Portrait Session I will get right to work editing your images for our in-person proofing and ordering session, which will take place 4-7 days after your shoot.

Plan where to display portraits

While you wait for our proofing session, I recommend you take a look around your home and consider some spots that would be ideal to display your portraits. If you have walls, now is the time to text me a quick snap so I can help you consider sizing, placement and arrangements. If there are special desk frames you’d like to fill, take note of the sizes. And don’t forget to plan for grandparent gifts! Thinking about these things in advance will help you feel confident with your ordering decisions.

Proofing & ordering session

At our post-shoot Proofing and Ordering Session, you’ll see all of your images for the first time - this is my favorite part!! We’ll ooo and aaaah over every detail of your marvelous newborn and place your order for memories that will last a lifetime. You’ll get to peruse my carefully curated selection of gifts, albums, desk prints, and wall art, and choose what’s right for you.

Portraits ready

Your products will be ready in approximately two weeks. I’ll give you a call to make arrangements for you to come to the studio or for us to deliver your order. Your family will happily enjoy art on your walls, keepsake albums, and gift portraits for generations to come!
