Congratulations on your new addition! I am honored that you’re here! I found a love for photographing babies early on in my photography career. I love what I do because I can preserve memories that might otherwise be forgotten. Newborns change so quickly and those little details are often hard to remember. That is what makes newborn photography so rewarding. I love that I can be creative while preserving the new and ever changing details of a newborn. Life is precious and I know you and your little one will cherish their newborn images forever.

Newborn sessions are held in my home photography studio in Richfield, Utah, where I have everything we need to keep your baby comfortable during his or her session, including the adorable props you see on my website. Newborns are best photographed 5 to 14 days after birth although I will take older babies. I only schedule a limited number of sessions each month, so to guarantee a spot during this time, I recommend booking as soon as possible, ideally in your second trimester. I like to plan each session uniquely and booking early helps to ensure all the details are perfect.  I do try to leave space in my calendar to accommodate last minute newborn bookings so if you have already had your baby or your babe is almost here, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Newborn Safety

Posed newborn portraiture requires extensive study on safety techniques and posing, as well as lots of time, experience, and patience. I have photographed several newborns since beginning my business in 2013 and your baby’s safety is my number one priority. I continue to take workshops and classes every year to improve and expand my abilities in newborn portraiture, and I am fully licensed and insured. I want every client to feel comfortable knowing their baby is in the hands of an experienced professional.
