Cincinnati Newborn Photography
Being one of Cincinnati’s Newborn Photographers is such a special honor! You invite me into your brand new family to capture your life and family history.
There is something absolutely special and unique about Newborn Photography. Making the investment to capture those precious newborn moments will pay off for years to come. The newborn stage is such a short period of time. Newborn photography gives you an opportunity to hold those brand-new-baby images in your heart long after your baby has outgrown the newborn stage.
My newborn photography style ranges from lifestyle, documentary photos to posed in prop photos. Natural and subtle posing is used to beautifully capture your family – photos like you holding and snuggling your precious newborn, your husband holding your newborn baby, any siblings with the newborn and your family as a whole.
When to Book a Newborn Portrait Session:
Please book your newborn portrait session before your baby is born, whenever possible. Many clients choose to reserve their due date during the 2nd trimester (or early into the 3rd trimester) of pregnancy. I reserve adequate time on and around your date to ensure availability to photograph your newborn baby during the ideal age of 5 to 14 days old.
Once you give birth to your baby, you or someone you trust will contact me to schedule your actual session date.
*To give each client the best service possible, I book a limited number of portrait sessions per month. I will make every effort to accommodate late bookings whenever my schedule permits.
Age of Newborn:
Ideally, your baby will be photographed within the first 5 to 14 days of life. During the first 2 weeks, newborn babies are extra sleepy, easily posed, and less fussy. Older newborns (2+ weeks) have longer wake periods and can be more challenging to get to settle, to sleep, and to pose. We will make every effort to to schedule your newborn portrait session as early as possible after birth.
Session Location & Duration:
Newborn sessions take place in your home. I bring everything we need, including newborn wraps, headbands, baskets, buckets, and other accessories to make your newborn session a success.

Newborn portrait sessions usually take around 3 hours, sometimes shorter and sometimes longer. The goal is to work around the cues of your baby and allow plenty of time for feeding, diaper changing, and soothing the newborn baby.
Newborn safety and health are my top priorities. With every pose, the safety and comfort of the newborn are the first focus. Poses are simple and comfortable for your precious new baby. Props are stable and safe.
Having 2 children of my own and working with newborns and young children for years, I understand the vulnerability of a newborn's immune system. I take careful precautions to ensure the cleanliness and sanitation of my props, tools and equipment. In cases of photographer or client illnesses, sessions will be rescheduled.
