Your baby's story 

From the moment you knew you were expecting, your whole world changed. There are no words I can share to truly prepare you for the way your heart will grow ten sizes the first moment you hold your newborn baby.

Those first few nights may seem long, but the days will pass in the blink of an eye — and a newborn photography session is the best way to ensure you and your loved ones can treasure these special, sleepy, wonderful days, long after they’ve turned into memories.

Here's what to expect...

I know that your first few weeks as a new parent can be quite the whirlwind (whether it’s your first baby or your fourth) and I’m dedicated to making your newborn session a relaxing and comfortable experience amidst all these changes.

All newborn sessions take place in my warm, cozy studio, designed to keep your little one asleep and content. I’ve been professionally trained in posing techniques, so you can be sure that your precious bundle is safe in my hands. Take this time to enjoy some much-deserved rest while I pose and photograph your new bundle.

My newborn photography style is simple and timeless, using simple props that ensure focus is always on the true work of art: your baby. I have everything readily available on-site, including a variety of props, and you’ll receive all the directions and other information you need prior to your session.

Traci and her assistant were amazing to work with for my daughter’s newborn photos! From the first moment I reached out to them to the moment I received my daughter’s adorable photos, they were warm and professional. They are amazing with babies, and make parents feel comfortable during the photoshoot process. I can’t wait to share my photos with family and friends, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

This experience was amazing, the fact that you made us feel at home was so comforting. The time and dedication to our baby was so amazing, we thank you for that. We hope to continue taking pictures with you in the near future. Thank you once again.

Let me start off by saying wow, what an amazing experience! As a first time mom and someone who has waited years for this moment, I couldn’t have picked a better photographer. From the minute you inquire about the session to getting the pictures back it’s such a personal experience and all the information is applied to the session making it that much more special. I would definitely recommend any one looking for a newborn session to come to Traci!

frequently asked questions

All of my newborn sessions take place in my studio in Visalia, California.

I recommend photographing your newborn when they’re between five to twelve days old. Newborns sleep soundly at this age and are more willing to be repositioned than babies older than twelve days. If your baby was born prematurely, that time frame can be stretched to a certain degree. 

I recommend securing your session as soon as you know that you’re expecting — the sooner, the better. I only book a certain number of sessions per month, and it’s best to contact me and secure your spot while you’re still pregnant. Your session will be tentatively scheduled around your due date, allowing for some flexibility.

Of course, I want to make sure you don’t miss out on this special opportunity to create lasting memories. If you already have a newborn and didn’t book in advance, please get in touch as soon as possible to see if  I have any openings.

Yes! Siblings can absolutely be included in the newborn sessions. Please let us know if you’re interested in doing so when booking so we can create the perfect setup.

Our newborn style is simple and timeless, with focus placed on the true work of art — your newborn baby. I am professionally trained in the best wrapping and handling techniques, and your photos are much more likely to capture your baby’s true essence (and come out nicer) if you allow us to simply work our magic. If it’s very important to you, we can attempt a pose that you’ve found online, but we cannot guarantee that your photo will be an exact replica of the one you showed us.
