I just love seeing these families for a maternity and then a newborn session. I love how this Momma glows being pregnant. Her beach maternity session had the perfect evening as we did a little off roading to our location. Her beautiful baby girl made her appearance in our studio at two weeks old. She did so well and is just gorgeous. Welcome to this world little one. I am so thankful to see them all again and if you are interested in learning more about booking a maternity session with newborn session with me please contact me HERE


Keep baby awake for a minimum of 90 minutes or more prior to your session start time.

Nursing? Avoid spicy foods for 24 hours or more before your session.

Schedule shots or immunizations the week (or at least 48 hours) prior to your session date.

If you use a pacifier, bring it with you but don’t use it prior to the session.

Turn off your phone so you won’t be distracted during the session.

Your hands may be visible. Time for that manicure! I like to grab details photos.


Sessions can last 2-3 hours, so a “Newborn Session Kit” is a great idea.

Here are some things to include:

• Your Special Blankets

• Extra Milk or Formula

• Extra Diapers

• Baby Wipes

• Pacifier

• Any sentimental items you want in your image but everything is provided.
