                                            This session is for babies at 5 days old. 


I absolutely adore photographing precious newborns, and it’s even better when mom & baby are in the snuggly comfort of being at home!  Parents choose the look they want for the photos that they are hoping for with personal color choices, style & vision.

Parents are more than welcome to add in personal items too!  Did Grandma knit something special for baby?  Does Dad have a favorite team?  Let's make baby's session a family connection!

You can go with one backdrop color for all your photos or go for different looks, it's up to you. 


I include a variety of backdrop colors, your choice of baskets, or maybe you'd like a crate or tub, along with all the pretty fillers, and those cute little wraps for baby.  The newborn portraits include professional editing.  Also included are sweet headbands, hats & diaper covers!

I bring Studio Lighting & posing cushions to your home.   You can visit the "Posh Props" link for additional options for your session for props.   Etsy.com is a great place to order something custom too!

Let me know if you want to get a photo of baby with sibling or multiple siblings! 

I recommend scheduling in your 2nd/3rd trimester. Waiting to book until baby arrives will incur an extra fee, lose any complimentary Posh Props & Sibling photo, and lower priority in scheduling.


Travel fees may apply.

baby's 1st day in-hospital "fresh 48" session

$200 for 10-15 digital photos. Travel fees apply.

These are usually taken 12-24 hours after baby's arrival (not of the actual birth). These photos are the ones you'll cherish on every upcoming birthday! 

These are the photos that many moms and dads (in hindsight) wish they would have had a professional come in and take.  This is such a special day, your baby is finally here!  You want a photo of the new mom, dad and baby together. But capturing the memories with horrible hospital fluorescent lighting while showing your aunt how to take pictures with your i-phone might not work out.

Let me help with a 15-20 minute session in the hospital before baby goes home. I'll bring in portable studio lighting (babies don't care for flash photography) and quickly take professional photos for you. 

Some area hospitals offer this service directly, and usually charge patients for each print ordered.  You may want to check with your hospital on their availability and their prices.

Save $25 when you also book your Deluxe In-Home Newborn Session (pre-delivery-booked only). Add $75 fee for booking after baby arrives.

maternity studio photo session  

Always wanted to try out your modeling skills?  Would you love a studio session for your maternity photos?  We can book your session at a Riverside studio.  You are welcome to include others in your photos too!   (sorry, not available for newborn/older child sessions)

1 hour Riverside Studio Session 20+ photos $325.  



As you can see, I love everything baby!  I also try to keep things simple and straightforward for parents.  Most brand new parents don't have 1/2 a day to spend in a hot photo studio hoping to get good newborn photos.  Our new dads love being able to get a great photo with their newborn, and then get back to their day if they need to.  New moms love just nesting at home with baby and what we can get done in 90 minutes!  This is the time to keep things simple, including up-front pricing (I list everything up front, no need to text, email or call to get our prices).
