step by step

our process is easy and fun


typical newborn session

each session includes a family photo , parent/baby sets and many sets of baby in various outfits . we use a variety of props , hats and wraps . in the session featured here, we used 6 different sets .

what to expect during your studio session

sessions take about 2 hours typically and we will do sets in this order to get the best results. you can relax in our lounge area with a beverage until we need you on set

we get these portraits first thing while the baby is awake and siblings are happy

sometimes these are our favorites .  working with 2 and 3 year old siblings along with a newborn can be very challenging but we love it !   the reward is getting natural smiles and capturing the relationship between the siblings . after this set , the siblings can go home with grandparents if available so we can focus on just the baby

we get the baby to sleep and start photographing right away.  this time is precious .  it often helps to keep the baby awake until this time so they will sleep more easily , and also wait to feed the baby until you get to the studio and we are ready to do this set .  we typically have at least 5 different sets or outfits set up ahead of time to make transitions easy .  we always leave plenty of time for feeding and changing .  during this set we do most of the close-ups of tiny feet and hands

we always do a mama/baby set and a daddy/baby set as well as parents together with baby.    we have mama gowns you can use while you are here , floral headpieces and soft lighting to capture poignant images .
