Newborn Session

Starting at

Our Signature Newborn Session captures your baby’s first days of life in a creative and unique way. There is nothing more beautiful than newborn photography, and we know the importance of preserving your family’s most precious moments. We are proud to provide an unforgettable experience and create stunning artwork that celebrate you and the beautiful life you created.


Our newborn photography style is elegant, classic, timeless with a touch of modern. As a newborn photographer, Heather loves to connect with her clients to create something that is meaning to them.


We recommend capturing newborn portraits in the first 4-12 days when your baby is very sleepy and flexible. This is the best time to capture those precious curled-up poses. If you are sure you want specific poses, please ask about those during your consultation. As Heather’s schedule fills up months in advance, it is best to contact us as soon as possible to ensure availability.


All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a consultation session with Heather. She will discuss posing, lighting, wardrobe, and style. We will work closely with you to learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that you will have a relaxed newborn session. Once your session is booked, we will send you a Newborn Guide with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your baby’s first photo session.


Our studio uses natural materials for props and accessories that are gentle to your baby’s skin. Most of the hand knit soft props and wraps are made of 100% natural organic yarn. Everything is washed after each session with detergents that are free of harsh chemicals.


We love posing newborns in buckets, baskets, little beds, and more so you’ll always remember just how tiny they were at this exact moment years from now. All of our newborn sessions are done in our beautiful studio in Waco, Texas. It has an elegant and comfortable lounge area to unwind and feed your baby, and is also equipped with a changing table stocked with baby products for your convenience. Your baby’s comfort and safety is far more important to us than achieving a pretty pose. 


Professional photo retouching is included in your session. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing, while we focus on creating a natural look, we will edit your photos to your liking.



Our studio offers high quality fine art prints, gorgeous gallery wraps and elegant framed wall collections for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful memories.
