Embrace this special time in your life.
Whether we’re photographing your beautiful baby bump or your newborn, these tender stages won't last forever. This is a unique time as a parent that your family will treasure forever.
Timeless images — Stress-free experience
As a new or expectant mother, you have a lot to manage. We keep your experience simple.
We will help you choose the right time for the perfect maternity session and our staff will be on call to photograph your newborn during their very first days. All you have to take care of is your little one. Ask us about our Baby's First Year Program where we capture the rapid growth of your child during their first 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.
Locations where comfort is key
Choose a location where you will feel the most comfortable having your photos taken.
We often photograph expecting mothers in the comfort of our studio, but outdoor locations such as Whitnall Park or the shores of Lake Michigan are beautiful spots for a photo session. Intimate newborn sessions can be taken in our studio or at your home. Ask us about coming to the hospital to photograph your newborn on their birthday.

What should I bring to my maternity session?
We encourage the baby’s father and other siblings to be in the photo. Bring some baby items that are special to you, a blanket, favorite newborn outfit, rattle, etc. Also bring comfort items that have helped you through the pregnancy, a special book, jewelry, a favorite mug.
Where is the ideal location for a maternity session?
Do you have a special place where you feel calm and relaxed? We enjoy customizing your session by meeting you in your favorite place or comfort of your home. Our studio provides a relaxed comfortable setting as well.
When should I schedule my newborn session?
Babies change so much even in the first few weeks of life. Their tiny toes slim fingers and entire being are continuing to grow every day. This is why we recommend newborn sessions are best scheduled in the first two weeks of your infant's life.
What should I bring to my newborn session?
The focus is always your little one, but feel free to bring family members to add to the joy. Father, siblings and even grandparents are encouraged to share the love. Keeping outfits simple is best. We start with your favorite outfit, and see how many outfits your newborn tolerates. Feel free to bring three outfits but we may only use one or two. We suggest bringing wraps or blankets, stuffed animals, rattles or any nursery favorites to bring to the session.
Where is the ideal location for a newborn session?
It's all about the baby now. Wherever your baby is most comfortable. We love personalizing photos in the baby's nursery or the comfort of your home. If you want to venture out, our studio sessions are focused on you and your baby, allowing you time to nurse, calm the baby and change diapers if needed.
