Thank you so much for taking the time to peek at my site and considering me. Custom maternity and newborn photography is like no other type of photography. It is very special and requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with your precious new baby. Your photos will be cherished memories forever and heirlooms to future generations. The actual session is only the beginning of creating these precious memories; after your session I will spend an extensive amount of time selecting and editing the best images to showcase in your gallery. I can say without a doubt that working with newborns is my passion.
I am a professional photographer serving clients from Utah, Uintah, Salt Lake, Summit, Morgan and Weber counties. I specialize in custom portraiture of maternity and newborns. My studio is located in Heber City, Utah.
Careful consideration has been given to price so I am able to offer each and every client the very best customer service, creativity for your session and most importantly, a great experience. If you choose to bundle your Signature maternity and newborn sessions, there is a $50 discount towards the creative fee.
This is such an exciting time for you! Thank you for considering my studio to capture these fleeting moments of your precious new baby. Did you just find out you're pregnant, or already had your little one? Let's chat! It's never too late or early to book! I offer two different session types so you can choose which works best for you and your family.
Newborns are best photographed around the two week mark for those sleepy, curly poses. My studio offers an extensive selection of high-end props that you are welcome to use for your session. I welcome infants older than 14 days too, although they may not do all the poses and be awake a little longer. Older babies have more wrapped images in their gallery and the all swaddled session is great for them.
I have several years of experience photographing newborns, as they're my speciality. Baby safety is my priority at all times. I am certified in newborn safety and have been professional trained. I am current with my pertussis vaccine (tdap) and my studio is properly licensed and insured.
When to book your session?
As soon as possible. I will book you based on your due date. Once your sweet babe makes their debut, I ask that you contact me to schedule the session. The session will take place at my Heber City studio. All newborn sessions begin at 11:00 am.

Photographing newborns is my passion. I spend a lot of time getting every little finger and toe positioned perfectly when photographing your little bundle. First and foremost, it is important to me for your baby look comfortable and peaceful in the photographs and to look like a piece of art. I do love for my photos to appear timeless but do welcome a splash of trendiness in my work.
When arriving at the studio, be prepared to just sit back and enjoy the session. I will take over as soon as you arrive, undressing baby and getting him/her used to me. I will feed baby during the session if you are not opposed to bringing a bottle (expressed breast milk or formula). If you are exclusively nursing, that is perfectly fine. We can take as many breaks as we need to keep your newborn calm. Also, a pacifier is a great way to soothe baby during the session so feel free to bring one if your baby takes one. Many newborns are gassy; to ease their discomfort I ask that you bring a bottle of gas drops to the session just in case. Gas drops are safe for the newest of babies.
My studio is kept at 80-85 degrees to keep baby comfortable for the session as they will be nude for a majority of it. So feel free to dress in layers or dress light for your comfort.
I will play white noise during your session to mimic the sounds of the womb and shushing.
There will be accidents and I’m perfectly fine with that. Almost every newborn I photograph does have an accident on my backdrops. I’m not a modest person at all and keep on rolling. So please don’t worry about that.
Be prepared to spend up to 3-4 hours at my studio.
