They're only a newborn for a couple of weeks, but a photo last a lifetime.

There is no more special time in your life, then when you decide to bring a child into the world. This time should be captured for you and your family to enjoy for generations. You'll never get another chance! Within weeks into their new life and your baby will already be changing quickly and will never be the same again. I love capturing this unique time at the start of their lives; that fluffy hair, those little toes, and the cute newborn sleepy shapes that will very soon be gone forever.

Newborns are best photographed within the first month of life. At this age babies are easily settled, often sleeping and therefore more comfortable during the session. Full newborn sessions last 3-4 hours, allowing ample time for a variety of studio set-ups, and plenty of time for feedings, settling, and cuddling. During sessions my goal is to create a variety of unique and creative images, while keeping your baby's comfort and safety my 

top priority.


Newborn sessions take place in my studio located by Hamburg in Lexington, KY, where I can ensure the best light and keep the room at a warm temperature. Props including blankets, beanies, bonnets, wraps, throws, and headbands are purchased from the finest local and international suppliers and are available for your session. These items are only available for in studio sessions. If you have sentimental items such as knitted blankets, special clothing items, hats, etc. you would like included in your images, please bring them along to your session, and I will make every effort to incorporate them into your session.

No pose is guaranteed. Each baby has their own likes and dislikes and the session will be "baby lead". This means that if your baby is not happy with a certain pose, I will move on to something else.

I schedule a very limited number of sessions per month because I want to insure that my clients who book with me receive all of my attention every step of the way, a custom designed session just for their baby and heirloom images that they will cherish forever. Booking your session early is highly recommended, but if your baby has arrived or is due any day, please contact me and I will see if I can get you in.
