Newborn Photo Sessions – Currently booking summer 2018 due dates

Best within baby’s first 2 weeks of life, booking early is encouraged to secure availability.

Newborn baby photos are such a wonderful and special time to capture, I am so honored to have froze this moment in time for so many families! Your little one will grow so fast and those first few weeks of becoming a new parent (or new parent of 2, 3, etc) can be exhausting, resulting in you remembering this sweet phase as a blur.


My studio is located in Hartland, WI servicing the Lake Country and Waukesha County areas. At my studio I provide all the props, headbands, wraps, and beautiful elements used in my portraits. Though it is completely encouraged for parents to bring in a special item they would like captured with baby, whether that be a blanket grandma made or a piece from the nursery, the options are endless and I will always do my best to create a set for you to display the item with the focus still on your sweet baby.

When to book…


The best time to book your newborns portraits is while you are still pregnant, I encourage moms to book late in their second trimester or early in their third. This way you can guarantee my flexible availability for your due date, because lets face it – baby will come when baby wants to  and we need to be prepared to work around baby! Booking early also gives both the parents and myself time to plan out the session, especially if you have a special request and I need to creatively come up with a set based on your ideas and ensure I have the proper elements to make that set beautiful.


Newborn photo sessions are $400, which is due in full at booking. The cost is inclusive, which means once your are booked there will be no additional costs unless you wish to purchase professional quality prints, books, or wall art through Birth & Beyond by Kendall. Included in your investment is the 90 minutes – 2 hour photo session, 5 set ups – often parent poses, sibling pose, and 3 set ups of just baby, and at least 20 final images with print release.

First year package options available:

Book your baby’s whole first year of portraits in a package for about 30% off the normal session investments. Each session includes the full session with 20 final images and print release. Full payment is due at booking or can be split into two payments, half the balance due at time of booking and remainder at the newborn session.

How Sessions Go…

Once baby is born we will confirm a session date to be set within baby’s first two weeks of life. During the session baby’s safety is very important to me, this is why I have taken multiple professional photography workshops to learn safe posing, and handling of baby. I am a mother of 2 myself and have held countless babies, but many of my clients are brand new to me when they come with their newborn session and I want my clients to feel extremely comfortable when they hand their baby over to me. After the session I retouch the final images, my style of editing is very simplistic and natural with the sole purpose of enhancing the image for quality printing. You will see sneak peeks posted to my business Facebook page, and then within 2 weeks you will receive the online gallery with the final images and a print release. From the gallery you are able to download the full sized images to your computer for printing, sending, and posting as you  please to.
