Newborn Session

For Babies Under Three Weeks of Age

I've spent the last seven years specializing in newborn photography. While I've lost count of the actual number of newborns I've photographed, each one has left a footprint on my heart. There is something special about those first fleeting days of life... the squishy lips, chubby cheeks, and cuddly newborn snuggles that change in the blink of an eye. I absolutly love documenting this stage of life, and count it as a blessing to photograph it for my clients.

I offer two styles of newborn photography. You can choose between the calm, serene setting of our studio or opt for a lifestyle session in your home.

Studio sessions are the most common seen in my portfolio. They include all the fun props, headbands, and squishy baby poses. Everything you see on my site can be used for your session and you are more than welcome to bring personal items to make your portraits even more special.

A lifestyle session is more about your family welcoming your newest member in your home. There are no traditional poses or props, and we instead focus on your family's relationships.

Client favorites have been gathered into convenient Collections. They give you the opportunity to purchase a beautiful, heirloom quality products and digital files for your personal archival and reprinting needs.

Creating your baby's first heirloom is simple with any of SHP's beautiful display options. They are avaliable for purchase at your Ordering Appointment and viewable at the link below:


Newborn photography is it's own niche of child portraiture. Newborns are best photographed under two weeks of age, or up to three weeks for a lifestyle session. Choosing the right photographer for your family is an important decision because like a wedding, this special time cannot be duplicated.
