My Approach to Newborn Photography | Newborn Photographer Mitchell SD

Mar 26, 2019

Timeless.  Authentic.  Natural.

I say it all over my website because I want to make sure my clients understand my goal at all of my sessions.  Babies curl and stretch and yawn and cry and wake up and sleep.  They are held and they are loved and that is what I am here to record.  Therefore, my photography is all about capturing those authentic moments and showing them without distractions.

I am passionate about creating art from your most treasured memories.  My work represents how I see newborn babies.  They are soft, sweet and unique.  Even at a few days old, they are their own perfect little person and my art captures this for you.  My sessions feel organic and are filled with light and texture.  Your little one is only this little for a fleeting moment and I want to preserve that moment for you to cherish forever, in a piece of art that makes you pause every time you pass it and makes you smile every time you think of it.

Mitchell SD Studio

While I do offer a minimal selection of headbands, hats, wraps and coordinating blankets…my style is very neutral and baby focused.  I want your baby to be what people notice first.  These sessions are held in my studio, located at the Highland Mall in Mitchell SD.  I keep the studio warm and cozy for baby.

The ideal time for your newborn portraits is between 6 and 12 days old. At this point they are the most curly and sleepy and we can still capture all of those perfect newborn parts that they quickly grow out of like the little hairs on their backs or ears, the fresh wrinkly fingers and toes, or even their cord stump.

What to Expect

I will guide you along the way with what to expect, what to wear…even when you should book your session!
