Newborn Session Information
So fresh, so new, and so loved.
From tiny hands to their tiny toes, every little detail on a Newborn is precious and deserves to be preserved in time.
I believe in creating photos for families that make their newborn the center of focus. I prefer to use soft and neutral tones combined with textures and gorgeous light to create beauty that is simple. My natural light studio in Montgomery, TX is equipped with everything needed for your newborn session from blankets, wraps, bonnets, delicate hair bands to special items for keeping baby content. Having a new baby is an amazing, but stressful, time so I like to take all the worry out of your photo session. All that my clients have to do the day of their photo session is show up with the baby; everything else is taken care of.
I practice baby-led posing, which means that after I wrap your baby in soft, beautiful textures and place them in gorgeous light, I allow them to get comfortable in ways that are natural to them. I love photographing newborns in their purest state and giving families authentic photos.
All of my newborn sessions include photos with parents and siblings in addition to photos of just baby. I work with a professional hair and makeup artist that makes moms look their most beautiful for portraits that will become family heirlooms. Since clothing also plays a big role in the look and feel of portraits, I offer guidance on what to wear in addition to having access to the studio wardrobe full of beautiful clothing for mom, children up to 2-years-old and options for fathers. Portrait sessions include a styling appointment prior to the session to make sure that everyone looks great and feels comfortable so that we can create the best possible portraits of your family.

Newborn sessions begin with a session fee of $200. Approximately 2 weeks after your session you will have a viewing an ordering appointment where you are presented with a box full of 25+ printed proofs to flip through. At this time you will choose from three Portrait Collections that include digital images as well as fine art products curated for their high quality.
In the day of digital images, I understand the importance of digitals for safe-keeping, but as a busy mother of two myself, I also know that seeing your baby’s features within the first few weeks of life in a portrait hanging on our wall or in a photo album that you can flip through is priceless. I also know that most new moms, even with the best of intentions, simply don’t have the time or resources to create quality art themselves.
So, in an effort to solve both desires, all of my Portrait Collections include all of the digital images from your session as well as fine art. You simply choose what art entices you – whether prints, albums, or framed fine art – and let that and your budget guide you to a Portrait Collection. Portrait Collections begin at $700. More details about pricing are available here.
