Newborn session

The first few weeks of life are full of sweet memories as you and your baby get to know each other. This is one of the most important milestones to any parent, and scheduling a newborn session is a great way to capture these moments to cherish for years to come. You won’t regret having newborn photos that freeze those delicate smiles in time.

Newborn Session Process

Our newborn portrait process is simple and easy. Whether you want to have an indoor studio session or an outdoor session, I’ll be here for you through the entire process

1. Initial Consult

The first step is to set up a call with Kelley and talk about your vision for the session.

2. Your Photo Session

We’ll pick a date and location for your actual session and create the photos.

3. Editing

After your session, it will take approximately 2 weeks to complete your edits.

4. Ordering & Delivery

You select your photos and products and they will be professionally produced for you.

When Should You do Your Newborn Session?

We recommend scheduling your newborn session a few months in advanced for within a week after your due date. Once the big day gets closer, be sure to keep us updated so we can see if the original tentative day still works.

What to Wear to Your Newborn Session

You should wear whatever you feel comfortable in! As for your newborn, we have props, blankets, and wraps that we can look through together if you don’t have something specific in mind.

“She made us feel right at home”

We just had our session yesterday and wow… they came out so breathtaking and magical. We had missed out on a newborn session with our youngest due to covid-19 – and loved the outdoor idea. She must be a baby whisperer because my 6wk old daughter is usually soo difficult to get pictures of, but she managed to get such elegant shots. My baby was awake the entire time and Kelley captured our whole family beautifully. So many wonderful shots it’s hard to choose! The location was stunning, the lighting was perfect, and she made us feel right at home.

“Kelley is so wonderful to work with”

Scheduling was a breeze, and Kelley took a lot of time in advance to give recommendations on make up and hair, and especially on what or what not to wear so we all could look best in front of the greens, browns and blues from the background. She even came over to our house in person to take a look at our outfits and give recommendations! All questions I sent her were answered by her in supersonic speed. Needless to mention that all the pictures turned out beautifully, and both times it was impossible to just choose a few, so we ended up buying them all!
Kelley is very personable, and a professional through and through. Our toddler wasn´t in the mood at all both times to have his picture taken to say the least, and we as a family who isn´t used to participate in photo shoots felt very insecure on what to do or how to act in front of the camera at first, but Kelley stayed calm and patient, and reacted in the most flexible way to work with the situation that was presented to her, gave suggestions on what to do and when, and managed both times to put everyone at ease, creating a relaxed atmosphere.

“Our go to photographer”

We have had Kelley take our family pictures several times now (Christmas card, newborn, child birthday) and every time it has been a great experience. Most importantly the pictures have turned out incredible each time and always have a lot of pictures to choose from. Very enthusiastic and great at getting shots of young kids.
Will continue to be our go to photographer going forward.
