"Sometimes the smallest things

take up the most room in your heart."

~ Winnie The Pooh

Nothing can prepare you for how much you're going to fall in love with your new baby. It's a feeling like no other and the start of a new life's purpose. Your baby is growing every minute and I'd love to provide you with beautiful, timeless images of you and your new baby that will be enjoyed for generations to come. 

Professionally trained by newborn photography instructors and neonatal nurses to work with newborns, I have learned how to safely handle and pose your little one while using creative ideas for artistic imagery.  To date, I have photographed over 380 beautiful Kootenay newborns!

Newborns are best photographed within the first 14 days of birth, with the prime time being between 5 and 10 days old. The idea of doing this so soon after birth might sound a little daunting with your sleepless nights, but it's so worth it!! Your baby will grow and change every day and we want to capture the newness of your baby while they are still super sleepy, and comfortable in cute curly poses. Older babies don't enjoy being moved around when they are sleeping, which makes posing difficult and as a result, there will be less variety in your images. Plus, every day their bones get harder which makes them uncomfortable in some poses. You can relax comfortably with a book, wifi, or bring along a board/card game and watch your baby being photographed comfortably from the sitting room. 

Everything for your newborn shoot is provided, but please feel free to bring any items that you would like to incorporate into your images such as special blankets, family heirlooms, or first teddy bears. 

When your baby is born, please notify the studio as soon as possible to be guaranteed availability during your baby's prime time! You will be sent a helpful sheet on how to prepare, what to pack, what to wear and what to expect of your newborn shoot.

Studio Newborn Sessions are held in my commercial studio space:  Suite A,1334 Cedar Ave. Trail, BC. (street level).
