The baby... The joy you feel with her or his pending arrival grows with each day. Then the day is here and we want to stop the time because it passes by so quickly. From first step to first word to first day of school, first kiss, first job and the kids becoming parents themselves. It is long nights, short days, crazy schedules... but so many wonderful memories.  Treasure the very first of the first moments with newborn portraits.  These memories are worth the investment.



Newborn Experience

Newborn portrait experiences are a very intimate session.  I prefer to meet in person for a consultation before your special bundle arrives.  This gives me to best opportunity to get to know your family before the big day and will make you feel more at home at your session.


The newborn portrait experience takes place in our home studio in the Golden/Arvada area.  I have props, wraps, dresses, outfits and everything to keep baby warm, snuggly and happy.  I am happy to incorporate a momento or special blanket as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I schedule my newborn session?

I schedule newborn consultations 2-4 months before your due date.  Then give us a call when your little one arrives.  I will typically photograph newborns between 5 -14 days old.  This is the best time to get those sleepy squishy baby portraits.  However if your baby is past this age, don't worry, I believe all baby's deserve beautiful newborn portraits.  Call us and we can chat about your baby's first portraits.

What should I wear?

Keep it simple. Portraits of mom and baby where there is skin on skin contact are beautiful.  If you want to have portraits done like this, wear a dark colored tank top or cream colored.  This will not only allow for skin on skin contact, but provide the perfect amount of contrast in the portrait.  For those who are more self conscious, wear a form fitting long sleeve shirt in dark brown, gray or cream will also work well. Moms, pamper yourself with a new do, a manicure and/or professional makeup. 

How long does a newborn session take?

A typical newborn session runs from 2 - 3 hours.  These sessions are baby led.  And that means if baby needs a snack break, we take one.  You can find more information on what to expect from your newborn session in our welcome packet at your consultation. 

Is it possible for my partner & older children to be part of the portrait session?

Of course!  I am happy to include all of your immediate family in your portrait experience.  Please make sure to let us know beforehand so I can prepare.  Also since newborn sessions tend to run a little long, we suggest that you arrange for the older siblings to leave the studio after their portraits.  This will insure I can have a calm and quiet studio for your new baby to be photographed in.
