Newborn Photography


Newborn sessions take place in my photography studio in Richmond, BC. It lasts 2-3 hours, so we have enough time to cuddle, feed and pose the baby with no rush. For in-home sessions, please take a look at Family Session Info Page.

The best time to schedule a newborn session is within 2 weeks after birth. At this time babies are more sleepy and curly and we can get most of the cute poses you see here on my website.


It is very important to schedule your session before baby arrives. I know that once your baby is born, you’ll have a lot on your mind, and selecting a photographer might not be the first thing on your list. That’s why it’s best to book your baby’s photo session a couple months before your due date. I will add your estimated due date to my calendar and once your little one arrives we will schedule your newborn session within the first two weeks. I only book a few sessions a month so my calendar is very flexible. Even if baby arrives before or after your due date we will find a date and time that work for both of us.

What if my baby is already born? I’m always happy to photograph older babies with the understanding that we might get only awake and wrapped shots. If your baby is already born don’t hesitate to contact me, I sometimes have last-minute openings!

I offer a complete set of props and accessories, you don’t have to worry about anything. If you would like to do some family shots, we will do those at the beginning of the session. 

What to Expect

Before the session, we will chat about your goals for the session as well as define props and colours that you like. This step is done via video call and through an online questionnaire. Once your little one arrives, please contact me within 48 hours after birth to let me know the big news. We will find a day and time that works for both of us to schedule your newborn session. I will send you a “Preparation Guide” with more information about the session, how to prepare, what to bring, what to wear, etc. Your booking is completed only after completing an online agreement and paying for the session fee, at least 48 hours prior to the session.  

During the session relax and have fun! Your baby will sense your mood. Feel free to bring along books, iPad, laptop or any drinks or snacks. Parents and siblings shots are done at the beginning of the session. I have plenty of experience working with newborns and you should always expect the unexpected. Pee, poop will happen and don’t panic or be embarrassed, it’s a normal part of the newborn photography sessions and it happens all the time. I wash all used blankets, wraps and outfits after every session and the studio is always kept very clean. Baby will also have fussy moments, and that is just fine. You won’t be rushed through your session, and we will have plenty of time to cuddle, change, feed and relax your little one. A newborn session can take up to three hours and we will respect all needs of your baby.

After the session, we will meet again at my studio in 1-2 weeks for your View&Order appointment where you will select your favourite images from your session and I will assist you in designing artwork specific to your unique style.  The editing process will take about 3 weeks after your selection.
