Sessions in the studio
Studio sessions take all the pressure off of you. All you need to do is show up with your newborn and I will take care of the rest! All props, outfits, and accessories are provided by me. My minimalist, classic style focuses on all the details of your new little family member.
portland newborn sessions
Lifestyle newborns are ones we do outside of the studio. These can be in the hospital or birthing location before you leave, or in your home so you can remember the details of their nursery or your first house as a family.
Marleigh was such a beautiful little girl! I had gotten to know her mom and dad at their maternity session so we had such a great time hearing all about how she came into the world! We got her in right at 8 days old and she absolutely rocked her first photoshoot!
Sweet little baby boy
Colton was such a chill little baby! He came in at a little over a week old and was such a dream to photograph! I love how babies look on cream - so classic. Plus those awake pictures were just too adorable!

Baby Kashton was such a dream to photograph. His big sister came along and so we were also able to grab a family picture and sibling pictures. Such a sweet baby and family.
Precious • moments • captured
From the moment your child is born, you don't want to forget a thing. Their expressions, how tiny they were, flakey skin, baby fuzz... I love it. I have been there with my own four children. I've been called a baby whisperer more than once. I create a peaceful, soothing environment that allows your baby and you to relax while I capture how perfect they are!
saving every detail of your PRECIOUS child at the Newborn stage
You've now seen my work and would like to chat about a session! Yay! Reach out from the contact page and get more information on newborn sessions with me. I will get to know your family and your unique preferences and make sure we are a perfect fit. Be sure to book during pregnancy to ensure a spot on my calendar as I take a limited amount of newborns each month.
1. Say Hello
2. let's make it official
We are an awesome fit and you're ready to get on my calendar - let's make it all official! I will send you over the agreement and invoice for your $195 session fee. This covers me doing your session, and does not include images. I want you to get exactly what you want so you will choose and add on your images or prints later. I will also send over a questionnaire to learn about your family so I can properly tell your story. Is this your first or will there be sibling pictures? Do you have a favorite color you want incorporated? Let's get it all figured out so your photos represent exactly what you want to remember about your precious new baby.
3. ask me Anything
I will work with you to pick outfits from my client closet for you and any siblings, or point you in the direction of some wonderful boutiques online that I know photograph well. I will provide everything for your newborn - hats/headbands, wraps, and outfits. I will walk you through how to prepare your baby for their session to ensure the most sleepy sweetness. You will have me to help with everything! And now we just wait for your little one to make his or her arrival! Once they have been born, you will let me know and we will set a date for when they are 7-14 days old. This allows you time to get feedings established, and ensures they are still super new, sleepy and fresh.
4. the big day
We have picked a day, and on the morning of you will get your baby all ready for their session, then drive on over to the studio. I will go through my workflow of sibling, parent, and individual portraits. Your baby is in charge, so anytime they need to eat, be changed, etc., we will be on baby time. Sessions usually take between an hour and a half and two hours to allow plenty of time. I will photograph your baby in several different backdrops, a basket or bucket, and with family.
5. your photographs
Within a week, you will receive an email with your online gallery reveal. You will pick your favorites, then I will get to work on editing them to perfection! Your final images will be done within a week, and you can place your order for which digitals, archival quality heirloom prints and wall art that will ship directly to you. Lets get those adorable pictures into your hands, not just on your hard drive! The last step is just to enjoy your portraits for years to come!
$200 SESSION FEE for a full newborn session (Waived if booked with maternity)
DIGITAL Collections and Prints purchased separately

Typically occur between 7-21 days old while they are still so brand new and squishy. These sessions take about two hours to give baby plenty of time to settle, eat and doze off. I provide all props, backdrops, outfits, bonnets and headbands so all you have to do is show up with your precious little one!
Are you looking for hospital pictures? Or newborn pictures at your home? These lifestyle sessions incorporate more of your lifestyle and surroundings of these brand new days.
No matter how you plan to have me capture your little one, whether studio, lifestyle or both, you will have access to my professionally printed, heirloom artwork. Beautiful images of your baby belong in your hands, not on your hard drive.
"Ann was absolutely wonderful! She came to my house, which as any new mom knows - leaving your house is sometimes a deal breaker (for anything!) She was so careful and great with my baby. I could immediately tell she was so comfortable with newborns and my daughter was comfortable with her. While she changed outfits and poses on my daughter, I got ready in the bathroom (and did some laundry too ;)) We did the photos with me and my daughter last. She got the proofs to me the next day! I am so in love with all of the photos!"
"Phenomenal photography skills and highly specialized in working with infants. Ann surpassed my expectations as both an exceptional photographer and her ability to work with infants. She gave me astute tips to get my new born in the best condition for the shoot - and she showed up with an arsenal of tools to keep him in good shape for a few a hours, clearly directing along the way. She captured the best moments of him glowing and delivered stunning artwork. We hired Ann for the infant shoot and decided to do some maternity shots while we were at it. She nailed both with great success . I felt like a beautiful goddess in my shoot and my photos are a shinning new family treasure . As a professional, Ann was highly responsive and delivered as promised on timelines and details. I cannot say enough good things about my experience and will absolutely hire Anne again in the future."
“I had a fantastic experience with Ann! We used her for our newborn photography session. She is great with communication and very helpful when discussing expectations and how to prepare a baby for a photoshoot. She took the photos in our home, which allowed for a few lifestyle family shots. All of the images are frame-worthy and I look forward to hiring her again for more family photos.” -Christi
"I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Ann. She made the whole experience of my newborn's photos easy, fun, and low stress (which this very tired new mom really appreciates!). It was wonderful that she was able to come to our home and the photos are just adorable. We will cherish these sweet prints forever."
“Ann does an amazing job! Her photos are always beautiful and she is easy to talk to and puts everyone at ease.”
