session information

When it comes to photographing newborns, I usually aim to do it when they're between 8 to 15 days old, but I've also worked with babies up to a month old before. I've got an incredible collection of wraps, headbands, hats, outfits, and props specifically tailored for newborns to make those shots really special.

For the mamas, I've got beautiful gowns that can be used for maternity shots or even post-baby sessions, adding a unique touch to your portraits. In fact, there's clothing for every member of the family included in your newborn session. I always recommend solids, specifically neutrals, for your family newborn photos so the focus remains on your family and your sweet baby and not on the outfits you've chosen to wear. 

Newborn sessions are baby led, meaning that if baby needs to stop to eat, have a diaper change, or just needs a snuggle, we will do so. They tend to last approximately 1.5 - 2.5 hours on average. My studio has comfortable seating for mom and dad while baby is being photographed solo and I provide snacks and drinks for my clients to enjoy during their session. Everything baby needs is available as well, including diapers, wipes, and a stocked baby changing station.

A Fresh 48 session is wonderfully imperfect, capturing the raw essence of the first 24-48 hours as a new parent. In the midst of exhaustion and little concern for picture-perfect readiness, it becomes a precious time to embrace every nuance of your newborn – from their delicate button nose to tiny fingers and toes. These fleeting moments, whether with your first baby or your fourth, are a unique experience where you're absorbing every detail and savoring the newborn scent, recognizing that this exact moment will never come again.

I decided I wanted to have maternity photos and Kate came highly recommended so I reached out and she was able to schedule me. She made my maternity shoot easy and delivered stunning photographs that I will forever cherish. 


Kate is extremely personable with a bubbly personality! She even took the time to make sure my husband and I got to the location we picked without a hitch...All of the tools she provides...are extremely helpful and what makes her stick out from the rest... I would recommend her to anyone...


Kate made it really easy and convenient for my wife & I to pick the time and location for our maternity photo session. It was extremely fun and laid back, which is just the way we envisioned it...She stressed that it's the belly's time to shine & it was exactly that. Would recommend Kate's photography services and will be using her for our newborn photos as well.


We have been using Kate to take our pictures since 2019 and she has always done a wonderful job! The pictures always turn out beautiful and my favorite part is that she always posts previews within a few hours of the session! She also has a great patience with little ones which we appreciate a lot 😊 we can’t wait for more sessions with Kate!
