Newborn Sessions

Click HERE to see the special precautions we are taking during the current public health crisis.

The beginning of a newborn’s life is a blur for tired mom and dad, and yet this incredible time is so precious, and so fleeting. I love to photograph the details of wrinkly backs, chunky thighs, tiny noses and beautiful eyelashes, sleepy moments as well as peaceful, awake ones in a professional and safe newborn session. I’m thrilled that you want to capture the details of these first few weeks- it’s such a gift to your little one and your family. Book your Newborn Session while you’re still pregnant for when your baby is 6-12 days old.


The newborn session ideally takes place between about 6 and 12 days old. This is a unique window of time when baby allows us to shush her into a deep sleep and it soon passes, schedules change, and very often around 14 days or so baby acne begins to appear. However it is important to know that this is the ideal time to do newborn photos and it does not mean we can’t do them after two weeks – of course we can!  The first weeks after birth can be busy, so I encourage parents to schedule their session before the birth so that there is one less thing to think of, and one more thing to look forward to.  Any baby sessions are always fun, and we will always get lovely images of your little one!

Why go to a studio vs. having a photographer come to my home?

My studio is beautiful, and specifically set up for Newborn photography. We can make the most of the time we have, without having to stage your home, set up equipment, and lug things around. You get to sit back, relax, and watch your baby being the cutest ever! In my years as a photographer, I have had success with both on location and studio sessions, but the “all time best” images always come out of the studio!


• Your consultations before the session (email and/or phone)
Personal attention one on one with me, the photographer, as we work together to establish exactly what you’re looking for, what would work best for the space you have for your photos, and customize the session to suit you. No two sessions are alike!  You will get info specially compiled to help you get ready for your session, including things such as what to wear, what to have available during the session, etc.

• Your session
Your photo session at our specialized Newborn Studio in Bridgewater, MA., conveniently situated just 5 minutes from Rt-24.

• Your Digital Files
I believe in keeping it simple, so your session is all inclusive, and you get 20-30 digital files included with it.  Your images will be available for download as high-resolution files the moment they are ready, and you will be able to enjoy them, and keep them safe forever.

• An Online Gallery
Your images will be uploaded for you to be able to enjoy and order any prints, canvases, announcements etc, and to make available to family and friends who may want to place their own orders.
