Newborn portraits can be taken in our luxurious studio, or in your home for a lifestyle based session! We include all the perks for our clients: our exclusive client closet contains hundreds of swaddles, props, headbands and more, gowns AND hair and makeup for mom, styling support for your entire family, refreshments during your session, and a private ordering appointment for you to choose your products. We also have Grow-With-Me options to capture maternity through baby's first year that can be customized to your timeline!
Tori was referred to us by my sister in-law for newborn pictures. And wow, we could not have been more pleased with Tori’s work! She pays extremely close attention to detail, is very creative, and not to mention a “baby whisperer”. We will cherish the pictures of our baby girl forever! The turn around time for the pictures was very short! We will definitely be using her for more photos in the future!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if my baby arrives earlier or later than the due date? A: We only book a certain amount of newborns for each due date month, but once you've secured your deposit, your slot is held no matter when your baby arrives! Once baby is here, you'll contact us and we will schedule your session at that point (depending on how Baby is doing, along with Mom!)
Q: What is the difference between a studio session and a lifestyle session? A: A studio session of course takes place in the studio, and will be much more posed. We will use a lot of props and swaddling techniques. It is completely customizable from color schemes, to poses, to props you'd like to use! We use our studio lights for a consistent look in each image. Lifestyle sessions take place in your home, usually in your master bedroom, nursery and/or living room. We do less posing, and capture many interactions. For those who enjoy the look of posed sessions, we can also bring a prop or two and set up a makeshift area in your home for a few poses! This way you'll receive the best of both worlds.
Q: What safety measures do you take? A: We sanitize the studio between sessions, I'll wear a mask for the entirety of your session, and use hand sanitizer frequently! I'm also licensed and insured and trained in newborn safety. I will NEVER force your baby into a pose. We use baby-led posing to pose them into natural positions.
Q: How much does it cost? A: The creative fee is divided into two payments of $170. This includes everything you'll need for the session - props, swaddles, headbands, hats, accessories, hair and makeup for mom, styling support and of course our time and talent dedicated to making your session spectacular! Products, images, and prints are sold separately at your ordering appointment, approximately 3-7 days later. Collections start at $1190.
Q: What does the ordering appointment entail? A: This is where you will view your images for the first time in a stunning slideshow, and will be able to order your images and products. You can come to the studio for this, we can come to your home, or we can buy you a coffee at your favorite cafe! We have samples of every product we sell, and we also offer payment plans! Once your order is paid in full, we retouch your chosen images and order the products for you. Digital images take approximately 1-2 weeks for retouching and products take 1-4 weeks to arrive from the lab.
Q: Can I share my images with family and friends? A: Absolutely! We will send you all the soft proofed images from your session in an online gallery that you can send to family and friends! If they also place an order, you'll receive an additional credit that you can use towards future products!
Q: Do you offer Fresh 48 sessions (hospital sessions)? A: Yes! However, they are very limited. We only accept them when we know we will be in town 3 weeks before and 1 week after your due date. These are offered as stand-alone sessions or as an add-on to your custom newborn session!
