Oh the joy of holding your tiny little baby for the first time! But they grow up so fast and you do not want to miss this chance to capture portraits of your little one so you can cherish this moment forever!
I recommend newborn sessions when your baby is between 7 and 14 days old. But the session can also take place when your little one is older than that.
I'm trained in newborn safety and only do poses that keep your baby safe and happy!
All props (swaddles, outfits, headbands, hats, posing bowls and baskets etc.) are included in the session fee. When booking you get to choose the colors for your little babes set ups. If you would like something specific, please let me know in advance, so there is enough time to prepare. The same applies for set ups you see in my portfolio. I hardly ever do the exact same set up again, unless you request it.Contact me
The newborn experience starts at $275 and includes a phone consultation prior to your photo shoot, welcoming and prep guide, a 2-3 hour long photo shoot, professionally edited & retouched photos and a in person reveal of your images and ordering session.
Images and products are sold separately and start at $250. I offer 3 different collections ranging from $900 - $2600 which can easily be broken down into small payments (see FAQ).

"For our newborn session, our baby girl did not want to go to sleep and she was so patient and good with her. The atmosphere was peaceful and calming for her as well. The pictures from both sessions turned out absolutely beautiful! We are so happy with them and will cherish them forever. Thank you, Svenja, for capturing such a wonderful part of our lives so perfectly for us!"

Are family portraits included?
A.Yes! There is no additional charge for family or sibling portraits! I typically do family and sibling portraits at the beginning of the session so please arrive in your outfits you want to wear in the photos, unless you would like to wear one of the dresses in my client closet. Styling and prep tips can be found in my welcoming guide.
How far in advance should I book?
A.As soon as possible! Newborn sessions usually take place when your baby is between 7 and 14 days old. I normally book 6+ weeks in advance, so please don't wait to contact me after your little one is already born. I can't guarantee availability such short notice. Most clients book during their second trimester. That gives us enough time to plan your little ones session and set up a pre-payment plan. When booking, I will make a note in my calendar with your due date to plan accordingly and we set up the appointment after your baby is born.
Do you offer payment plans?
A.YES. One of the reasons why I always recommend booking as soon as possible is so we can set up your pre-payment plan. The session fee has to be paid in full at the time of booking and you can break up the payments up to 6 months. The payments can be broken up in half or multiple monthly or weekly payments; the dates can be set to your liking.
When can we expect our photos?
A.After our session we will set up an image reveal appointment, where you can look through your images and select your very favorites that you would like to purchase. All final edits will be send to review via online gallery 7 days after your session date. All final products will get delivered after 4 - 6 weeks.
Are you trained in newborn safety?
A.Yes I am trained in newborn safety and only do poses that keep your baby safe and happy!
Do you take any covid precautions?
A.Yes. Safety is the most important aspect for me. I'm fully vaccinated and also wear a mask during the newborn session. Everything in my in-home studio is cleaned and sanitized. I also only do one studio session per day to clean the space and air.
