I do my sessions in a shorter amount of time, usually 1.5 hours while other newborn photographers shoot for sessions of 3 hours or more. I like to do this because I know you are busy, and I think that a longer session can be stressful for a newborn, especially if the baby becomes fussy or upset. I want your baby to be as comfortable as possible, while getting those cute shots!

What makes me different?

Shoots are best done within the first ten days, that is ten days after the birth. This is best so that your baby is all snuggly and wants to stay swaddled up. After ten days babies start to stretch their arms and legs and begin to be more comfortable in a stretched-out position. If you are unable to do the session within the first ten days, that’s ok! I am still able try a swaddle and see if your baby still likes it, and if not I have other techniques to position the baby to still get beautiful shots you'll love.

Studio Sessions

As a newborn photographer and mother I know that it is not always practical to have your home ready for visitors. That's why I have a lifestyle studio space available for newborn session! This space provides a clean and beautiful area for your newborn photography session. In this space, I am able to control the lighting to optimize the quality of your photos. I have all that is needed such as wraps and swaddles, blankets, baskets, hats/headbands, and props!

Can't wait to see you in the studio!

I have done countless sessions as a newborn photographer in Rochester MN and surrounding areas. Newborn photography is one of my favorite session types because who doesn't love tiny humans!? I am only displaying a fraction of my photographs on this page, check out some full galleries of newborn photography here.

In-Home Sessions

As a newborn photographer and mother, I understand that sometimes you need to be in your own space! I offer the option of coming to your home for an in-home photo session. A typical newborn session includes family photos, whether this includes pets or other children, solo shots of each parent and baby, and then solo shots of just the newborn. Solo newborn shots can be in the crib or bed for a lifestyle look, or in a basket wrapped up in a swaddle. I will provide all that is needed for swaddles, blankets, pillows, and baskets. We can chat further about what your vision is before your session.

I provide all that is needed such as blankets, wraps and swaddles, hats, props, baskets and backdrops. If you want to do a more lifestyle type shoot (which is my favorite) we scrap the backdrop for the background of my studio room or your nursery/home. All you need to provide is yourself and your little one(s) for the session. If you have any special clothing or blankets that you would like included in the shots, make sure you bring them along!
