Newborn Photography in the Greater Philadelphia Area

Expecting a baby has to be one of the most exciting times in your life. Although sometimes it can feel like forever, the time that they are actually in your womb until the time they are delivered is so short. And the whirlwind that is baby’s first year is past in the blink of an eye! It’s amazing how something so momentous can slip away from you so fast. Before you know it, you’ve gone from choosing colors for the nursery to picking up candles for your baby’s first birthday cake.

Because time isn’t slowing down for anyone, you know that capturing this first year is so, so important. I would love to document this special time in your life so that you will always have these memories to hold onto. Take a look around and when you’re ready, fill out the inquiry form.

Session Information

After I receive your inquiry, I’ll send you my session guide that will have all the details you need. Once you’ve sent in your contract and retainer fee, I’ll send you a questionnaire in order to get to know you and your family better. When I get your answers, I’ll make a general plan for your session and go over it with you. During your session, you get to relax and enjoy yourself while I document all those amazing, everyday moments that you want to remember forever.

Documenting Baby’s First Year

Baby’s First Year plans are ideal for you if you know from the very beginning that you would like to document the first year of your baby’s life with professional photography. Each collection includes digital images and an album so that by the time your little one is blowing out those candles on their first birthday, you’ll have a book that documents the amazing milestones that happened throughout their first year of life! In most cases, the Baby’s First Year collection is chosen, contract signed, and sessions scheduled before the new little one even enters the world – crossing one (big) thing off your busy to-do list!

When you purchase a Baby’s First Year plan, you are purchasing a specific number of sessions and products. As such, these plans are usually scheduled based on the different stages of your baby’s development in the first year. The most common milestones are: maternity/expecting, newborn, sitting up/crawling, and walking. However some parents prefer to schedule their sessions based on the baby’s age, rather than their developmental stage (i.e. newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year). My Session Guide has additional information on Baby’s First Year Plans. To get the guide, send me an inquiry.


All sessions require a $250 non-refundable retainer fee. The retainer saves your date and will be applied to the collection of your choice after you have seen your pictures. Collections include digital images, as well as prints and other products.

If this sounds perfect for you and your family and you’d like to learn more, please fill out the inquiry form and I’ll be in touch with a session guide that contains all the details on the plans and the cost involved.
