Time Goes By… Fast
Newborns only remain ‘new’ for a few short weeks and they’ll grow and change every day. My goal is to achieve the very best results possible while capturing all that squishy new baby freshness. Sessions are long and relaxed to ensure lots of time for feeding, changing, soothing and posing baby. I never rush my sessions because this is a once-in-a-lifetime portrait session for your baby. Quality matters.
I’ll go through a variety of poses with different accessories so each image is a unique piece of art. Baby will be posed to look peaceful, dreamy and angelic. The styling will be clean, classic and monochromatic with soft, muted colors. I keep prop and accessory use to a minimum because I believe that newborn photos should be timeless and without too many distracting elements.
Conveniently located in SW Calgary (map below), my studio is cozy and inviting. It’s a dedicated space just for newborn photography. If you’d like to visit the studio prior to booking, just ask and we can arrange it.
I supply all the beautiful items 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. All styling and posing will be consistent with the images you see in my newborn gallery.
I stock all the things baby might need during your session (diapers, wipes, formula, pacifiers, etc). You’re welcome to watch me work or you can relax in the lounge, watch Netflix and help yourself to drinks and snacks.
Fast, Simple, Convenient
My process has been designed to be quick and easy. I love simplicity and want to make things as straightforward as possible for my clients. The entire booking process can be done online while wearing your pajamas and eating pickles!

“We couldn’t have been happier with the experience - it was very much worth the time and price.” -Carmen Guenther
All sessions include shooting time and full resolution digital images.
Full term newborns should be photographed between 4-14 days of birth to ensure the very best results with lots of sleepy, curly poses. After the first few weeks, newborns become more alert and challenging to pose. As long as I’m notified soon after baby’s birth, I’ll always be available to photograph your baby in those first 2 weeks. I’m happy to photograph full term babies up to 4 weeks of age (we may have even more time with preemies).
I accept a limited number of clients per month so my calendar can fill up quickly. Once all available sessions have been filled, the remaining dates for that month will be removed from my scheduling calendar (scroll down for link). Sessions start at 10:00am, as most newborns tend to sleep best in the morning. I also remember how challenging it was trying to get to super early morning appointments with a new baby.
