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. We 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.

some kind words

She spent numerous hours to capture those perfect moments of them!

“I had the pleasure of asking Traci to take newborn pictures of my first born son 7.5 years ago. As a first time mom I didn't know what to expect, but I was amazing by her work! So amazed that she has continued taking all my kids newborn photos and our family pictures every year since. She is patient, kind, and creative beyond words! My twins newborn session was when I saw her patience shine. She was gentle with them and never seemed anxious to get it over with quickly. She spent numerous hours to capture those perfect moments of them! I'm so lucky to have met her and blessed that she is my photographer!

frequently asked questions

Due to their short nature (approximately one hour), the Mini Newborn Sessions include fewer photos and setups. We also ask that parents and/or siblings not be involved in the mini session, and we will only use props that are provided in-house so we can make the most of our time together.

If you’d like to have the parents or siblings involved in your session and/or want to bring your own probs, please book a Full Newborn Session instead.

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. We only book a certain number of sessions per month, and it’s best to contact us 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, we 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 we have any openings.

Yes! While this isn’t possible during the mini sessions due to time constraints, siblings can absolutely be included in full 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.

Your photos are delivered to you digitally via Dropbox with full printing rights, so you can print at your convenience. We’d be more than happy to have them printed for you. Prints start at $25 an image. But we will provide you with our favorite photo lab, so you can order the best-quality prints for your home.

That’s okay, life happens. All sessions require a non-refundable deposit, but you won’t be obligated to pay the remaining balance for your session.
