After 8+ years of photographing all things from babies, to families, to high school seniors, weddings, and so much more - I've seen the importance of documenting life's moments first hand!

When we had our first son, Caden, in 2019 and now our daughter, Cora, in 2020 - I realized how fast time flies by on a whole new level! They go from a squishy little baby to a toddler running around in no time! I know the photos we have (both from our phones and professional cameras) will be priceless for years to come.

It's such an honor to be considered to capture your life in whatever stage you're in! Below you'll find all the info on the different portrait sessions I offer. Please reach out with any questions!

Brittney and Caleb are absolutely wonderful! We contacted them extremely short notice when we decided we wanted to do maternity pictures. Brittney was able to schedule us within two weeks of when we contacted her! We took our maternity photos outside in the freezing cold (our decision haha), and she was extremely patient and made sure we got all of the shots we wanted! Since then we have been back to her home studio for newborn/family photos. Brittney did a great job with our newborn photos. She is a baby whisperer-she got our little girl to sleep for the photos, had a space heater, sound machine, seriously magic with babies! She was also very cautious with how she positioned our newborn, which gave us peace of mind. She was also very understanding when we needed to take a break because our daughter was hungry... Brittney and Caleb are photographers who truly treat you like family! We can’t recommend them enough!

Hands down one of the best decisions we have ever made was to hire Brittney & Caleb to take photos for our family. It started with our engagement photos, then our wedding photos and our wedding video, then a baby announcement, maternity photos, newborn photos, one year photos, second baby photos, and now ongoing family photos whenever the time calls for it. I look around my home at these beautiful photographs and I feel so unbelievably lucky that we have captured snapshots of such meaningful moments in our life. To have someone with such an incredible eye for detail and "capturing the moment" is a huge blessing. Brittney can effortlessly get our girls to smile and laugh for photos, and somehow makes our family look much more put together than we really are. We are so grateful for the treasures we have in our photos and video. Thank you Brittney & Caleb!

Brittney was so fun and easy to work with for our newborn session! We got in really fast and she had all kinds of swaddles and bows for our little girl! Also the pictures were so precious, she captured all the little details! We can’t wait for the 6 month and 1 year sessions!!!

Brittney & Caleb are a true joy to work with.

I have never been let down with the end result, and I can guarantee you won’t be either!

We met Brittney and Caleb through mutual friends who happened to have Brittney and Caleb take their wedding photos/video. After seeing how beautiful their wedding photos and video turned out, we knew we wanted them to take our family pictures some day. Brittney came right out to our house 1 week after both our boys were born for newborn pictures and accommodated our schedule for a fall family mini session. Every time I receive our pictures back, I am amazed at how many amazing pictures she could capture of a toddler and infant! It’s always hard to find just one favorite. We also had Brittney and Caleb make a photo book of both our boys’ newborn sessions and it turned out so beautiful and is something we will cherish forever. We can’t wait to book our next session and HIGHLY recommend Brittney and Caleb to anyone searching for a photographer/videographer!

I had contacted a different photographer months before my baby girl was born, who was all of a sudden “unavailable” to do a newborn session for us when I reached back out after her birth. In a bind, I reached out to Brittney and she was able to make it out to our house THAT week and get Norah’s session done! We ended up purchasing the whole first year package, and have been blown away with how our photos have turned out. They’re quick and efficient with every session, timely in responding to my inquiries, and have captured our little one and our family better than we could’ve imagined! We will be booking them for any and all photography needs we have going forward!

Below you'll find the investment information for newborn photography sessions. I take a limited amount of newborn sessions each month, so if you're ready to book click "CONTACT TO BOOK" below to see if I have availability in the month your baby is due!

step 01: book your session

I have a brand new studio being built this summer! It will be ready in Fall 2022. Most newborn lifestyle sessions happen in clients' homes, but If you don't feel comfortable taking photos in your home, I do open my home office space up for sessions in the meantime. 

STEP 02: CHOOSE A LOCATION

Moms: feel free to do your own hair and makeup or have it done professionally! Stay natural and clean with your hair and makeup choices. A little mascara, blush, and lipgloss will go a long way in photos!
Dads: clean, trim, and file your nails. Your hands will be in many of the photos, so it's important they look their best!

STEP 03: PREP FOR YOUR SESSION

Your home does not need to look like a model home ... it's lived in! With a newborn. Do not stress about having the perfect space. Tidy up the areas we'll be shooting in, open the shades, undress your baby, loosen their diaper so it doesn't leave any lines, and swaddle them (if you want swaddled shots).
A sleepy, happy baby makes for the best newborn photos. After baby is undressed and swaddled, feed them so they have a full tummy.

STEP 04: the session day

Yay!! Everyone loves session delivery day! All of the edited images from our sessions are typically delivered within about two weeks of the shoot date via an online gallery. This gallery will allow you to share your favorites with family, order prints and even download images to share on social media. 

Your gallery will remain active online for you to download your images from for five years.

STEP 05: delivery day

Photos weren't meant to be stored on your device. They should be admired in your home and bring warmth into your life. I offer prints so you can cherish your favorite moments and memories forever.

STEP 06: order & cherish

frequently asked questions

Your photos are delivered via an online gallery. This gallery is super easy to use! You'll get two links, one is for desktop use and one can be used to save an app on your phone with your images. 

With your gallery, you can download, share, and print images! Your gallery is online for 5 years.

01. How are my photos delivered?

The sooner the better! I take a limited amount of newborn sessions + first year packages each year. 

We all know babies tend to come on their own schedule so scheduling your newborn session can be a bit tricky. I'll make sure to mark your due date on my calendar and always keep you in the back of my mind as I schedule my weeks around your due date. After you deliver, we'll get you on the calendar within 1-2 weeks. 

I do offer payment plans for the first year packages. Most clients choose to pay a portion of their package at each session. If you'd like this option, let me know at the time of booking!

02. HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION? PAYMENT PLANS?

A lifestyle newborn session focuses on capturing the real, raw, and organic moments within the first 2 weeks of bringing home your baby.

My goal as a photographer is to capture these moments in a beautiful way! During our time together, I will have you snuggle up and hold your newborn close alongside your significant other.

03. WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION?

I have a brand new studio being built this summer! It will be ready in Fall 2022. Most newborn lifestyle sessions happen in clients' homes, but If you don't feel comfortable taking photos in your home, I do open my home office space up for sessions in the meantime. 

04. DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO WE CAN TAKE OUR NEWBORN OR FIRST YEAR PHOTOS IN?

Love your furry family member?! Bring your pet(s) to your session! I love when I get to meet your pet and will make sure to get some photos. I recommend having an extra person or a kennel for your pet for the portion of the session we won't need your pet.

05. CAN I BRING MY PET TO MY newborn SESSION?

You bet! I love including all family members in photo sessions. I recommend taking some family photos at the newborn session + the first year session. 

06. CAN OUR OTHER CHILDREN BE A PART OF ANY OF THE SESSIONS?
