Baby Plans



My signature session features stunning newborn images that capture your heart. I like to focus on the details while your baby sleeps peacefully. I also include classic images with mom and dad.

It is usually best to schedule your newborn session near the end of your pregnancy. If baby comes a little early or late, we can reschedule. Newborn sessions should be done when baby is 6 to 10 days old as this age works best for posing and photographing a newborn.  After two weeks of age, they are more likely to be disturbed while sleeping, and can also become colicky, or baby acne can start to flare.

On the day of your Newborn Session, please schedule a feeding around the same time as our photo shoot.  We want your baby to have a full tummy so that he or she sleeps during the session, so take your time and do not worry about rushing your baby.

3 – 4 MONTHS
At this stage you will see how your baby has already grown and changed. These images are focused on getting those sweet baby pictures while your baby shows off those beautiful eyes.

6 – 7 MONTHS
The perfect milestone. Your baby will be able to sit up for this photo session, allowing for a multitude of different photographing options indoors and outside. At this time in your baby’s life he or she will be smiling, showing off their personality, and grabbing those sweet little baby toes.

Now your baby has become mobile! He or she will be crawling or walking and is ready to explore the world around them. This is the perfect time to document this exploratory stage and capture their expressions.

The final session in the Baby Plan includes images to document their first birthday. They will be walking, playing, climbing, and getting into lots of mischief! This session is typically scheduled about 2-4 weeks before their birthday party for a chance to put their images on display.

This is truly the beginning of your Baby Plan! Maternity Sessions can be done at your home or photographed on location, and should be scheduled between 32 and 35 weeks along.
