Newborn Session and Package Options

Newborn sessions are my favorite sessions to photograph. As the mother of four growing children, I have a soft spot in my heart for my littlest clients, and I know how quickly they grow!  My goal with every newborn session is to capture the beautiful details of your baby in photographs that your family will cherish for years to come.

I prefer to shoot my newborn sessions within the first two weeks of baby’s life, while baby is still in that sweet, sleepy stage and can be posed most naturally. With newborn sessions I put your due date on my schedule, and then ask parents to contact me for a firm session date after baby is born. Because I accept a limited number of newborn clients each month, it’s best to schedule your session early and several months prior to your due date to assure availability. This is particularly important if you are due with your baby during Iowa’s peak photography season of August- December, as my schedule fills quickly with not only newborns, but families and holiday photos!

With every newborn session, I will work with you to style a lovely session for your baby. I offer an extensive newborn prop collection at my studio including: outfits, headbands, hats, wraps, blankets, bowls and baskets, so there is nothing you should feel like you need to purchase or provide for your session.
