ready to tell your story?

Newborn photos are a little bit for you right now, but mostly for future you.  The future you who is walking your sweet baby into Kindergarten, and can't quite remember what it felt like when he fit into your arms.  Let's make sure you never forget.

As your NJ newborn photographer, I'll bring everything we need for your session (swaddles, bows, a beanbag and a moses basket).  Newborn sessions take place on weekday mornings, when the light is best, and babies are happiest!  Your whole family can be included in this session (pets, too!).  We'll start with family photos, and make sure to get plenty of portraits of the new baby alone as well. Newborns change so, so quickly, I promise that booking a newborn session is one thing you'll never regret.

Fill out the contact form, or send an email to, and we can find the perfect date for your session. I'll share location ideas, as well as a portrait session planning guide that includes plenty of tips on choosing outfits and preparing your kids for our session.  

Let's Chat



A signed contract, brief questionnaire, and deposit are required to hold your spot on my calendar. For newborn sessions, we'll book a placeholder date that can easily be adjusted if baby comes early or late! 

Make It Official



I'll be in touch before our session to confirm that we're going ahead as scheduled.  For newborn sessions, I bring swaddles, headbands, a beanbag, and a moses basket with me.  We'll set up in one or two areas of your home - no need to tidy the whole house! 

Session Day!



Your images will be delivered approximately 2 weeks after your session, in a secure online gallery.  Each image is hand-edited in a light & airy, true-to-life editing style.  You can download your images to your phone and computer, and your gallery will stay active for two months.

The process 


Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home, on weekday mornings. Sessions take approximately 90 minutes, to allow plenty of time for feeding, changing, and comforting your new baby.  



  • pre-session planning & style guide
  • 90+ minute in-home session
  • selection of neutral colored swaddles, bows & moses basket 
  • full gallery of 40+ edited, digital images ready for download


Absolutely. I don't know anyone who's totally comfortable in front of the camera, unless you are a professional model. I promise I'll tell you exactly where to stand and what to do with your hands. And in my experience - by the end of our shoot, you'll actually be *enjoying* yourself! 


We're awkward and my kids don't sit still. Will our photos turn out okay?


Please, please do not stress about how tidy (or not tidy) your home is.  I remember the newborn days well.  We'll pick one or two spots in your home, move any clutter out of the way, and get started! 


should we clean our whole house?


I only take a limited amount of newborn sessions per month, so the sooner you reach out the better!  I suggest inquiring sometime during your second trimester, so we have plenty of time to plan.  

Newborn sessions take place on weekday mornings.  We'll choose a placeholder date that can easily be moved up or back depending on when baby arrives! 


How far in advance should we book?


To give your photos a timeless feel, I recommend wearing neutral, lighter colors. Creams, grays, camel, and muted blues, greens, and blush photograph beautifully. Avoid neon colors, bright red, busy patterns, and logos. Upon booking, you will receive a portrait session planning guide, and Pinterest boards to help with wardrobe inspiration!
