Cleveland Tennessee Newborn Baby Portrait Photographer

Within every newborn session,
baby and mom have my full attention and we’re never in a hurry,
specially taking any necessary breaks for feeding, changing, or soothing.
Choose between an in-home lifestyle session
or come enjoy the privacy of dedicated space
with backdrops, wraps, baskets, and accessories.

You can expect this session to last 1 to 2 hours …
as long as it takes to capture a sufficient set of images.
We do our best to prepare and hope for ‘sleepy baby’,
but should ‘wide awake’ be the plan for the day, we wait …
capture what we can …
and sometimes that means a little extra time together (refreshments included).

Your session will be followed up
in a few days with a viewing appointment, to see your images in print,
and choose what you LOVE for wall art, albums, gift prints, or announcements.

Because newborns become less sleepy,
less flexible and more aware of their surroundings with each passing day,
the ideal time for pictures is within 2 weeks of birth

I know exactly how hard it can be to get out with a new little one! So …
no need to dress up, or “make up” … and if I’m coming to you, no cleaning allowed.
Coming here? Just ‘arrive’.
I’ll welcome you with a soft chair, pillows, refreshment and ‘a break’.
My experience with babies is not just in business, but in 4 of my own.
I LOVE them – and can relate to (or commiserate with) this sleepless time of life …
always taking the safety, care, and handling of baby very seriously.
