Thank you for taking this time out of your day to view my newborn photography. I hope you'll see a bit about what makes me and my work different. While I can be a sucker for cute little baby hats and accessories and love to use them, my instinct is to go with a "less is more" approach. I like to keep it simple and capture what makes your little one unique - that funny face he makes when he stretches or yawns, her tiny features, the way she's still curled, fresh from the womb, and the connection between your new baby and his family. Sibling and parent images are among my favorites.
My ability to work with newborns has come from 20 years of experience as a newborn photographer. I have also had the honor of mentoring other photographers from around the country in the art of newborn posing.
My newborn sessions take place in my studio in Newport, MN where I've set it up with beautiful natural and studio lighting, a wide selection of accessories, props, and very soft, comfortable blankets in various colors for baby to snuggle with. The studio is in Cottage grove, just southeast of St Paul, near Woodbury, Hastings, St Paul Park and Inver Grove Heights. Newborn sessions work best if done during a baby's first 10 days of life, although I've been very successful with babies beyond this point as well. To reserve a newborn session, please contact me before baby is born and I'll leave room in my schedule around your due date to guarantee my availability when your baby arrives.
Ask about the Belly and Baby session, and the Baby Milestones Program, which includes a newborn, 6 month and 12 month session and an option to add on maternity.
Thank you again! I hope to hear from you soon.
