The Portfolio

The newborn will typically remain swaddled or snuggled up with parents for much of the session to keep your tiny little one comfortable + warm. We prefer simple + elegant styling with florals + greenery, lovely textures, bonnets and hair accessories to naturally showcase the beauty of your sweet new baby. Immediate family + siblings are always welcome + strongly encouraged to be included in the newborn session, as they are part of your growing family’s life story. 

 We want to help time stand still for your growing family by documenting all of the sentimental details + beautiful moments for you. We'll provide a custom and equally special session day experience you'll love, and ends with tangible artwork you will treasure.

with a meaningful & effortless photography experience.

Thank you for your message!

The ideal time to photograph a newborn session is between the first 1-3 weeks of life. We only accept a limited number of newborns per month, so please reserve your session date as early as possible to ensure a session with us.

How old should my baby be for their newborn portraits?

Our newborn sessions always encourage family to be a big part of the session! We have a lifestyle approach that really focuses on the natural and loving connections your family has for your new baby. We will certainly capture beautiful newborn portraits of your little one alone as well, preserving all of those precious details we know you’ll cherish as they grow.

Is family involved in the newborn session or is it mostly photos of the baby?

Our client wardrobe specializes in providing a boutique wardrobe for women and young children. We have a growing collection of shirts for Dad and select pieces for children 5T+. Before your session takes place, we’ll invite you to our studio where we will help do all the style planning for you!

You can browse our wardrobe collection like it’s your own closet until we decide the best combinations for each member of your family. If we don’t have a certain item you need, we’ll help you find it! We also provide you with tons of style inspiration in our exclusive planning guide you’ll receive upon booking.

What should my family wear for the newborn session?

Aside from personal care items such as diapers, bottles, pacifiers, etc. we provide everything you may need for a beautiful newborn session. Our client closet is overflowing with beautifully textured blankets, swaddles, onesies, knit bonnets, delicate hair bows + so much more! If there’s an heirloom item that’s dear to you, you are always welcome to bring it but everything else is completely taken care of!

What do I need to bring for my baby during their newborn session?

- Amy B. | Maternity, Newborn + Family Client

Lauri and Carrie made me feel comfortable and beautiful when I certainly did not feel that way! (7 months pregnant + 2.5 postpartum.) They recommended hair + makeup and had a full wardrobe for me to choose from. I didn't have to worry about anything! The photos exceeded all expectations and I'll treasure them forever."

"I would 100% recommend

- Aleks H. | Maternity boudoir, newborn + Family client

We met them while I was pregnant with our daughter and have since done maternity, newborn, and 6 month milestone sessions with them so far. I have never felt so beautiful as I have when I'm styled in their studio wardrobe and in front of their cameras. I can't even express how grateful I am to them for capturing the most precious moments of our lives for us to look back on forever."

"There aren't enough words to describe how much we love Lauri and Carrie and their amazing work! 

- MEGAN K. | Maternity, Newborn, + family client

"We LOVE Lauri and Carrie! We have gone to them for maternity, one/two/three year milestones, and all Santa/Holiday sessions for the past few years. We love how our house is filled with their beautiful images. I love the ease of having an outfit inspiration board emailed to me and/or using the wardrobe for mother and baby - it makes our lives so much easier! Lauri is always available to check over outfits and give her opinion since she knows the aesthetics best.

They are more than just photographers, they are an experience and worth every penny. 10/10 would recommend!

 NORA W. | Newborn + Family Client

With our oldest, it was the most relaxing and calm experience doing her photos! With our youngest, our toddler was having meltdowns left and right and what would have been a really stressful time ended up being so much better than we expected. Lauri and Carrie were so engaging and fun with her and worked some kind of magic to get us the most precious photos. One of my favorite parts is that you are able to use their studio wardrobe to style and have the ability to pick out accessories and colors that speak to you so each photo session from them is so unique with the same elegant look."

"Lauri and Carrie have done both of my daughters newborn photos and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! These are photos we will treasure forever and the best investment.
