Featured in Bored Panda’s “50 Best Newborn Photographers by State”
I aim to provide a truly extraordinary newborn experience for every client from the time you book your session to the final delivery of your products. Sessions are catered to all needs & budget types and every newborn session includes access to my fully stocked prop collection of goodies. Prior to your session we will chat about your style & pose preferences and I will have every set styled and ready to begin when you arrive at the studio. Throughout the session I do all the posing & soothing needed leaving parents free to relax and enjoy some quiet time…or maybe even sneak in a nap.
Newborn sessions are scheduled weekday mornings when baby is about 7-10 days old. I do book a limited number of newborn sessions each month to ensure a timely turnaround and the best possible client experience, so I do recommend reserving your session date as soon as possible – IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY!
Over the last 15 years, I have photographed hundreds of newborns and my work is usually recognized by the beautiful lighting, flawless skin tones, and meticulous posing perfected in every image. Along with years of experience safely posing & handling newborns, I have also received several awards of excellence for my newborn work and often mentor other professional photographers in newborn photography.
Like choosing a photographer for a wedding, you get just one opportunity to capture this extraordinary moment in time – the investment is priceless and I’d be honored to share this incredible moment with you.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should I schedule my session?
You’re welcome to reserve your date at any time, however Sarah recommends booking your session for sure once you reach the 2nd trimester. Sarah often books up 3-4 weeks in advance, so please call Sarah BEFORE your little one arrives to guarantee a spot. A tentative session time will be reserved based upon your due date.
Why choose Sarah?
Experience. Quality. Reputation. There are many considerations beyond price to think about when choosing your newborn photographer. The art of newborn photography is much more than just clicking a button – it really is a fine art – which you will have a greater appreciation for after your session. :) From preparing the setups for the session, hours of handling your baby the day of the session, meticulous posing to ensure baby looks relaxed and comfortable, knowledge of lighting and posing to ensure mama always looks beautiful, editing the images to perfection, etc. Price is an important consideration, however, newborn sessions are hard work and usually the least expensive photographer is also the least experienced. Knowing you will LOVE your images is worth the investment!
Is one week too soon? What if I’m not feeling great?
In order to capture the true essence of a newborn, the ideal time for a newborn session is within 7-10 days. At 2+ weeks babies start to be awake more, require much more soothing during a session, and aren’t as easily posed as newborns at 7-10 days. Once you arrive at the studio, Sarah will take over. Moms are required to do very little except feed babe when needed, other than that you will be able to relax on the couch, so there is no worry if you aren’t feeling 100% – that is to be expected. If you get babe here, we’ll take care of the rest.
How long will the session last?
Sessions are tailored to the individual newborns. The average session lasts about 2.5 hours…however, sessions can last 3+ hours depending on the needs of your little one. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding and soothing. *Newborn mini sessions are limited to 1 hour.
Do we come to your studio?
Yes, Sarah has a home studio in southwest Lincoln – 27th & Yankee Hill area.
Should I bring a special outfit for baby?
Most newborn images are done without clothing. Sarah will be in touch before the session to go over everything you need to know before the session.
Can you recreate these images I found on Pinterest?
If you see an image that inspires you, Sarah is happy to discuss what is most meaningful to you about the image and create something similar in style that you’ll love. She won’t, however, re-create a list of 10 Pinterest images. :)
