Newborns

Your baby is IN YOUR ARMS. Can you believe it?! You made it through the incredible process of getting this bundle of sweetness here, and you want to make sure his or her first moments are forever preserved. I'm so glad because you've come to the right place. 
I provide in-home and outdoor (in limited seasons) newborn sessions for my clients and have an organic, lifestyle approach where I take plenty of photos of baby alone but also in family's arms. I love making sure to get shots of all the tiny baby details, the nursery, and plenty of snuggles.

The Newborn Experience

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I will arrive at your home (wearing a mask of course!), wash my hands, sanitize, and keep a comfortable distance while shooting. 
Your baby will be lovingly handled by you, and I will gently guide you with posing and prompts. 

WHEN I ARRIVE AT YOUR HOME

I have a "Newborn lifestyle" approach, which means that I photograph the baby in his/her natural surroundings (the nursery and/or crib for example), and primarily being held by loved ones. I make sure to get lots of details... little fingers and toes, yawns and baby wrinkles.... all the things you'll want to remember.  

THE LITTLE THINGS

I'm SO happy you're here. Feel free to look through my work (can you even imagine the magic we are going to create?). Perhaps you want to know a little more about me, how pricing works, how I schedule newborn sessions, or find out how to work together... it's all here!

Any questions? I'm happy to help! Please contact me here. 


Take a look around!

Step 1 of 5

I'm looking forward to working with you. Once you've decided you just can't live without the photos I take of your family (aww shucks!), be sure to contact me and say hello! I will be over the moon to connect with you.

Before your session we will discuss timeframes and location options. I pencil in your due date and keep time aside the few weeks before and after, ready to spring into action when I hear your little on has made his or her arrival! 

Please say hello!

Step 2 of 5

When you are ready to officially book (yay!) I will send over a questionnaire (which helps me get to know you more), a contract, and an invoice. Completion of the those will make everything official and secure your spot in my calendar! 

After that I will send over a detailed session guide which will help you get the very most out of your photos with me. Because I pride myself in image quality, consistency, and unique style, there are a few steps to take with outfit selection and preparations. The good news is that it's not complicated at all!

Step 3 of 5

Your baby's photographic debut! 
One of the best parts of working with me is the actual session. Your experience during our time together is very important to me. Baby's safety and comfort is my #1 focus.  I want you to feel relaxed and at ease, which also looks great visually in your photos too, so it's a win/win!
 I will guide you so you never have to wonder what to do. Most of the session will consist of you snuggling your baby. I capture his/her little details, the nursery, and anything meaningful to you in your home. I love meeting new friends and my greatest hope is to continue a lifelong relationship of being your family photographer, beginning with these exact moments. 

The big day *cue confetti*

Step 4 of 5

Two weeks after your session, I will send you a very special link. One with stunning photos of your new family. Get the tissues ready, and enjoy pouring over each and every image.

From this gallery you will select your digital image package, prints, and products, which I will guide you through. 

I'm here to help you every step of the way.

Enjoy your beautiful images!

"I looked high and low for a photographer that has my same style and passion for all things timeless and whimsical. When I found Jeanna I knew that a match made in heaven was about to happen. She completely brought my newborn shoot dreams to life. 

When the big day came she made sure we had proper lighting in our home and wore a mask to keep us all safe. I could tell her main goal was to have our pictures be 100% perfection. 

She is sweet, caring and amazing with kids. She was patient and understanding when I had to nurse or our sweet baby boy was being camera shy. She far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use her again. The newborn shoot was beyond anything we could have imagined!  Worth every penny."

"I’m the happiest when I work with Jeanna because her tone is friendly and the environment is fun. She’s patient with our child that has special needs which is a huge plus. My whole family is comfortable with her and it always make for beautiful photos.

What makes Jeanna stand out from others is her attention to detail. Whether it’s commercial or family photos the execution is always flawless. With each shoot I know I’m going to receive perfect photos.

Jeanna always has a fun, natural environment while shooting. Her talent is unmatched and her photos are timeless. It’s always a pleasure."

"There are too many wonderful things to write about Jeanna. I will start with the fact that I will never have another human take my photo again. Her understanding of light and color and posing and framing make for the absolute perfect shot every time. Every holiday card I put together I have people begging for her contact info. 

Perhaps above all of that is who she is. She makes even the most uncomfortable and awkward people look like naturals and can use her photography sorcery to capture these incredible images of my kids (who are absolute tornados). We love her and have told her that she will be taking our photos for as long as she can hold a camera."

“Jeanna’s photography is magical! She has raw and genuine talent that is hard to find. She takes the ordinary, everyday moments and turns them into beautiful artwork. Her work is timeless. She has a way of capturing the sweetest moments with my children that I will get to hang onto long after they are grown.

My family loves sessions with Jeanna, she is fun and passionate about what she does. Even when the kids aren’t cooperating Jeanna works her magic and our photos are always gorgeous! Friends and family who see my pictures always want to know who my photographer is. Jeanna is a true artist.”

“We've worked with Jeanna for two family sessions and have loved working with her! As a family who does not do photo sessions very often, it is important to us to make them count when we do. Jeanna did not disappoint and I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on our photos when they were used for our holiday card!

We have two young boys who never stop moving and Jeanna was so great with them. I swore there was no way we were going to get the photos I had hoped for with how tough it seemed to get my boys to stay still. When we received them, I was beyond happy with the quality of the photos she was able to capture. We had so many amazing family photos to choose from and use. We will have these photos forever, and I am so grateful to Jeanna for doing such a wonderful job and capturing our family so perfectly.”
