"I cannot recommend Amanda enough! Everything was smooth and easy from booking the appointment, to reviewing the final pictures. She truly took the time to get the perfect shots our our newbie son, as well as had the patience to get a smile out of our toddler. I will always cherish the timeless moments she has captured."

Q & A

Q:How old should my baby be for a newborn session?

A: Ideally your baby will be less than 2 weeks old, that way we can get those sleepy poses! If you have an older newborn, please contact us! Amanda regularly photographs older newborns and would be happy to talk to you about a session.


Q: Can siblings be part of the session?

A: Absolutely!! We encourage the involvement of siblings and parents. We know how special the addition of a new member is, and we love when the whole family is involved.


Q: When Should I book?

A: Our schedule books up quickly. I suggest reserving your session date as soon as possible. Most mama's book in their second trimester.
