"Ellen is patient, allowing for a break to feed babies. She is extremely professional, and all of the photos look incredible. The prints are excellent and very high quality, and I love that I was able to get a digital file of all the images." ~Laura
Are you a mama who is too exhausted to try to make it to a photographer’s studio in the morning with your newborn?
I was too! That’s why I come to you!
Here’s what to expect:
Click on the Book Now button above to fill out your information.
Upon paying the creative fee, I will pencil you in for 7 days after your due date.
However, babies almost never come on their due date, so please call or email me after your baby arrives so that I can set a date.
I schedule newborn photography sessions for 5-12 days old unless your baby was premature, had birth injuries, or you had multiples.
I am So honored when I am one of the first people notified after a baby is born!
Before Your Newborn Photography Session:
Once you are on my schedule, I will send you my “Newborn Guide” to help you with decisions such as what to wear.
(I even have a small collection of dresses made especially for postpartum moms you may borrow!)
Feel free to text me pictures of different outfits if you would like help- you certainly won’t be the first and I am happy to help!
I want you to feel comfortable and beautiful!
During Your Newborn Photography Session:
While you feed your baby, I will setup my mini studio wherever you have a wide open space. It isn’t always the nursery.
Don’t worry- I’m willing to move furniture and put it back after.
There’s NO need to worry what your house looks like! Shamefully, I have yet to find a house messier than my house was with a newborn.
The set-up, session, and packing up takes 3-4 hours typically.
Then, we will set a date for your ordering appointment. All ordering appointments are held in the comfort of your home.
I will review all images with you, show you product options, discuss retouching, and help you with your order.
I will help you plan where to hang your portraits with software that lets you visualize how it will actually look in your home!
I use the best labs in the country and want you to have the best products available.
By purchasing professional prints, your images will be preserved for years to come, ensuring you won’t forget the bliss of your child’s first weeks.
Sometimes we can’t see it in the moment- amongst the pile of dirty diapers.
Professional prints also ensure that your great-grandchildren will be able to see how much you loved your family, and that you wanted to leave that legacy for them to find.
After your order arrives at my place, I will set up a time to hand-deliver your heirloom portraits directly to you at your home.
