A Little about you...


Are you looking for:


~ a focus on relationships & connection over props?


~ hand-crafted, muted-tone, natural fiber studio setting?


~ parents, siblings, pets or grandparents to be a part of the session?


~ a handful of shots outside? (if the season is right!)


~ intimate, unposed images interacting with baby?


~ a few images that reflect the season of baby's birth?
(springtime willow twigs, a handful of peonies,

or a tin of evergreen boughs)


If this is you, we may be a perfect fit!

A little About us….


For your newborn session, you will work with Amy Hannah or Candice. While we are different in many ways, we share a few traits, namely: confidence, patience, and peace. Our clients have told us again and again that these qualities make for a joyful, relaxing newborn session.


Confidence means that through years of experience, we know how to help you look your best, how to calm baby, and how to interact with older siblings, pets, etc.


Patience and peace mean we have learned compassion from our own life experiences, and are ready to extend that to you at every level. We book your session for a full 3 hours, so that comforting, feeding and chatting are just part of the relaxed pace of your session.


As your sweet baby grows, they will look through your images and uncover their story. Let’s show them how much they have always been loved.

Step 01. Answer your questions


Parents looking for newborn photos tend to have similar questions and worries. We put all the answers in one place for you.

(Including session and investment info!)


Step 02. Reach out to us


Sessions are booked for 3 hours in our cozy, modern-rustic, natural light studio.


Our calendar fills months in advance, so we book your due date to assure we will have an opening for you when baby comes.


If you are just finding us and have already given birth, still reach out - we always reserve a few last minute openings.
