NJ Newborn Photography


I started offering newborn photography sessions before I was even married. After having my daughter, I realize now how special these sessions are. The feelings of becoming a mom are the greatest (and sometimes hardest.) Life in the newborn phase can be a blur, and freezing these moments for you is my ultimate goal. These newborn photography sessions have become my favorite.

Newborn sessions are always in the comfort of your home within the first two-three weeks that your baby arrives. Your baby should be very sleepy and this is when they are easiest to work with. I set up a white backdrop and show your baby in simple and natural positions, never over-posed. I then photograph you together, capturing some of your first moments as a new family. These sessions are not rushed and are around 1.5-2 hours, giving time to feed or change.

Newborn photography sessions should be booked before your baby arrives to make sure there is availability on my schedule.


After your initial inquiry, I’ll send you detailed information and pricing. Your due date is reserved on my calendar with a contract and retainer. You’ll email me when your little one arrives and we’ll schedule a date for me to come to your home. After the session, your images will be sent to you through an online gallery. You are then able to order products to decorate your home with!
