Time Goes By… Fast

Newborns only remain ‘new’ for a few short weeks and they’ll grow and change every day. You won’t be able to go back and recreate these memories, so my sessions are long and relaxed to ensure lots of time for feeding, changing, soothing and posing baby. I’m a mom myself with many years of experience posing and photographing newborns. Please don’t sacrifice these important memories by trusting an inexperienced photographer with your baby. Be sure to hire a professional.

I’ll go through a variety of poses and different looks so each image is a unique piece of art. Baby will be posed to look peaceful, dreamy and perfect. I won’t clutter your photos with unnecessary props. The styling will be clean and classic because I believe your baby should always be the main focus.


The Studio

Located in SE Calgary (map below), my commercial studio was designed to be comfortable and accommodating for new parents. I’m fully stocked with all the things baby could possibly need (diapers, wipes, formula, etc). There’s also a private room for nursing moms who prefer discreet feedings. You’re welcome to watch me work or you can relax in the lounge and help yourself to drinks and snacks.

My studio is stocked with everything we will need to style your session such as custom knits, wraps, bonnets, headbands, backdrops and more. All my items are made especially for newborn photography for a perfect fit and delicate look.


Fast, Simple, Convenient

I know life can be hectic with a new baby! Lack of sleep and a whole new schedule can make even the most organized Mom feel scattered. My process has been designed to be quick and easy because you’re busy enough taking care of baby.

Newborns should be photographed between 4-14 days of birth to ensure the very best results with lots of sleepy, curly poses. This age suggestion is just a guideline for the best chance of a successful session. After the first few weeks, newborns become more alert and more difficult to pose but it can still be possible to achieve beautiful results with an older newborn. Multiples may be around 3-7 weeks of age for their sessions.

On the booking calendar, choose your due date or a date that is close. This date will be a tentative placeholder for now. After baby is born, we can reschedule as needed to ensure we get baby in within those first few weeks. I only take a limited number of sessions per month to ensure my availability to every client. A $250 retainer is taken at the time of booking to secure your newborn session on my calendar. The balance is due one week prior to your session. I’ll shoot to deliver the number of images included in your collection. Your digital image download link will be emailed in approximately 2 weeks. My posing and editing style will be consistent with the images displayed in this guide and in my newborn gallery.

“We couldn’t have been happier with the experience - it was very much worth the time and price.” -Carmen Guenther


Ready to book your newborn session? Choose the collection that fits with your needs and budget. Visit my Online Booking Calendar through the BOOK NOW button to reserve your tentative session date, pay your $250 retainer and sign your session agreement. You may also pay in full if you choose.

All newborn sessions start at 10:00am. The calendar will allow weekday bookings only. Weekend sessions are available for an additional $75. You can request and pay for a weekend session at booking and we can schedule a specific date after baby is born. Don’t worry, your session is only tentative for now. Once baby arrives we can reschedule if necessary to get baby photographed in those first few weeks.
