The newborn stage may be full of sleepless nights, but those days go by so quickly. Let’s capture your baby’s first moments.

If you’ve been daydreaming about your newborn photos since you first learned that you were pregnant, you’re in the right place. As your newborn photographer, I love honoring this special time for your entire family. Let me care for every detail – including ensuring your delicate newborn’s safety during the session – as we celebrate your newest addition.

^^ Your baby’s debut and first year are full of moments you’ll want to remember. Please inquire to book a Fresh48 hospital photo session and/or a First Year Package, which includes a newborn session and multiple milestone sessions during the baby’s first year, all for one discounted rate.

A Peek into my newborn sessions

Newborn sessions capture the details you’ll want to remember.

No matter what your journey to motherhood looked like, I know that you don’t want to forget a thing. Newborn photography preserves the details that fly by in those early weeks. Let’s capture those tender, early moments as you get to know your baby!

Whether you’re looking for a posed newborn session, complete with wraps and props from my client closet, or you desire a lifestyle newborn photography experience, I'm here to care for every detail – including sharing postpartum-friendly dresses and all the newborn essentials from my client closet – while you rest and recover with your newborn in your arms.

Newborn sessions typically are scheduled within the first two weeks of baby’s birth and can take place in my studio in Cedarburg, WI. Because I take on limited bookings each month to ensure my availability to capture your baby’s earliest days, I recommend booking your newborn session during your second trimester.

Hold Onto Your First Hours Together

with a Fresh 48

Fresh 48 sessions offer a unique way to capture the raw, tender moments of your baby's first days in the world. These sessions take place in the hospital within the first 24- 48 hours of your baby's life, capturing the moments of newness, love, and wonder.  From the  first cuddles to the first yawns, these sessions freeze time, creating memories that will last a lifetime.  Book your Fresh 48 session to ensure these fleeting moments are beautifully preserved, allowing you to relive the overwhelming love and joy of those first hours long after the newborn scrunch is gone.

frequently asked questions

Ideally, newborn sessions take place in the first 14 days of your child’s life, and it’s never too early to book.
I recommend reaching out early into your second trimester, so we have an abundance of time to plan and dream the perfect session for your baby.

I offer both stand-alone newborn sessions, and mult-session packages that capture your pregnancy, and your little ones first year.  Booking a package will not only ensure you capture all  of your favorite moments, but offers significant discounts on both the session fees, and add on collections.

I have everything on hand that we’ll need for the session, so no specific outfits for baby are required. You’ll also have access to my extensive client closet, which includes dresses for moms, and outfits for littles up to 12 months!

Dressing a postpartum body can be emotional, but don’t worry – my client closet also includes a range of postpartum-friendly dresses to help you feel confident. Take a look here! I have many more options than shown here and I’m happy to schedule a try-on session with you in advance of your session.

Approximately 3 weeks after our session, you’ll get an online gallery to view our images. You'll be able to upgrade to a collection that includes all of your digitals, and one with a print credit also. Your chosen images will download right to your computer. My store is also set up with custom heirloom products you won't find anywhere else, and my top collection comes with $500 in print credit!
