"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. A baby that is growing and changing every minute. I would love to provide you with beautiful, timeless images of you and your loved ones' that will be enjoyed for generations to come. 

Professionally trained by newborn photography instructors and neonatal nurses, I have learned how to safely handle and pose your little one while using creative ideas for artistic imagery.  To date, I have had the honor of photographed over 430 beautiful Kootenay newborns!! Though I am trained to safely pose your baby, my favorite poses to put your baby in are positions that they are naturally more comfortable in. All sessions are baby-led, meaning that they are the boss and I follow their lead. With my simple streamlined workflow, your session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours,  allowing you to head back home in no time!

Typically, posed newborn sessions are best held within the first 14 days of birth. The idea of doing this so soon after birth might sound a little daunting with your sleepless nights, but it's so worth it!! We want to capture the newness of your baby while they are still super sleepy, and because their bones are still soft, they are still comfortable in cute curly poses. Older babies don't enjoy being fussed with when they are sleeping, which makes posing difficult and as a result, there will be less variety in your images. If your baby is already older, let's book an unposed newborn session!

 

When at the studio, you can relax comfortably with a book, wifi, take a snooze (you wouldn't be the first!), or bring along a board/card game and peek over from time to time to watch your baby being photographed comfortably from the sitting room. 

Everything for your newborn shoot is provided, but please feel free to bring any special items that you would like to incorporate into your images such as a special blanket or a family heirloom. My fave style for newborn photos is super simple. The fewer props/distractions from baby, the better! (See some sample images below or check out my Instagram page for updated photos!)

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 information guide on how to prepare, what to pack, what to wear and what to expect from your newborn shoot. 

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