Newborn Sessions

As a newborn photographer, my top priority is to capture the beauty and innocence of your new baby in a way that will be cherished for a lifetime. With over 10 years of experience, I have the skills and expertise to create stunning images that will preserve your baby's earliest moments for you to treasure forever. All of my newborn sessions include family and sibling photos. 

My approach to newborn photography is gentle and patient. I understand that newborns can be unpredictable, and I take the time to carefully pose and handle your baby to ensure their comfort and safety. I also work closely with parents to incorporate any special requests or ideas they may have into the photoshoot.

My downtown Howell studio comes stocked with everything you would need for your newborn session. If you have any styling questions or special items you would like to incorporate please let me know.

Studio Sessions

 Studio newborn sessions take place up to 2 weeks after birth. Posed newborn sessions are styled and I provide all the props that we will need for your baby. These sessions also include family and sibling photos. I will help you style your session but if you have a specific theme or color combo you would like please let me know. Each newborn sessions last roughly 2-3 hours and includes a gallery of 25-30 high resolution images in an online gallery. 

Lifestyle Sessions

Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. These sessions can take place weeks after your new baby is born. This is a great way to get images in your new nursery, with pets, etc. During these sessions, I will capture your family in a way that you can look back on and remember how you really were. Siblings do great in this situation as well, allowing me to capture authentic moments. No posing is done in-home, just gentle and relaxed direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur. All family members are included. These sessions do not include props and last about 60-90 minutes. They include an onling gallery of 55-60 high resolution images available for you to download. 



We absolutely love working with Keri. She captures the moment so beautifully and is beyond talented. We first went to Keri for our newborn photos and will continue to use her year after year for our family photography.

Newborn Photography Questions

I always recommendation to schedule your newborn session while you're still pregnant to ensure you don't miss your 2 week window. If baby is already here, it's not too late, but again, making sure parents understand they may not get some poses is key.
Newborn babies are ideal to photograph between 5 & 10 days old, when they are still very flexible and spend most of their time sleeping. If for some reason your baby is unable to be photographed during this time frame, don’t worry, with the exception of possibly a few poses, I will still be able to capture many beautiful and special images of your baby.
A typical session is approximately 3 hours long. It is a rest and relax time for the parents, handing off only as needed to mom and dad for feeding and changing. Feel free to bring a book, catch up on emails, texts or Facebook, take a nap or simply sit back and enjoy watching the session!

Yes, I absolutely love to capture the sweet bond between parents and their newborn baby. This is something we discuss during the consultation or in your questionnaire. The images with parents are typically done at the end of the session, unless there are siblings, in which case they would be captured at the beginning. Every session is different in its own right so we just kind of play it by ear sometimes.

The studio is fully stocked with plenty of different background options & props such as buckets, crates, bowls, etc. & baby accessories like headbands, diaper covers & rompers, and a large selection of hats and bonnets. Each and every item in the studio has been selected because it matches my style and aesthetic. The goal is to make sure your newborn baby is the star of the image, and all of the props and accessories compliment the setup and highlight your baby.
For newborn sessions, I keep the studio somewhere in the high 70's in terms of temperature. Newborn babies have just left the comfort of their mom's 98 degree body. They can't quite regulate their own temperatures yet and can get cold easily. If we're not hot, they're probably not comfortable. Keeping a warm working space is crucial to keeping baby cozy.
