Newborn Sessions

When to book your newborn session...

The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will then make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from the hospital with your baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.

Where your session is held...

Your newborn session can take place in our studio in Tualatin Oregon or at your home within 25 miles of Tualatin, OR.
We also have first year packages from newborn to the one-year cake smash, and on location newborn sessions are available in the Portland metro area. In-home newborn sessions are $525 and include up to 1 1/2 hours of photography
