I am a prop-based photographer. Your precious newborn is gently arranged with the utmost care into props such as wooden bowls, beds, buckets and other unique newborn prop pieces. I am inspired by nature and neutral colors for schemes. I have beautiful props, wraps, head pieces such as bows and bonnets, and I have a few outfits available. I allow you the option of selecting the colors, or I'm happy to help! Parent/Sibling shots are available at no additional charge and highly encouraged!
It's best to book your newborn session at the beginning of your second trimester. We will add you to our calendar around your due date and as soon as you have your little one we can arrange for a day that works best for you and your family. Photos are best taken in the first 12-16 days after birth for my studio sessions. I can do lifestyle photos at your home with your family, or posed photos at my studio located in Papillion, Nebraska. If you are interested in a lifestyle session, baby can be older for the session.
A typical session lasts anywhere from 2-4 hours. Some babies are a little more fussy than others, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help them fall asleep! A session preparation guide is sent out once you are booked on my schedule. This helps ensure a smooth and overall wonderful experience!
I am up-to-date on my vaccinations, I have taken newborn posing classes, and I only conduct safe posing. Another little plus- I'm a mom to 3 little ones of my own as additional experience. You can feel comfortable with me handling and photographing your treasured newborn!
