NPP is taking a break for the holidays – there will be No Christmas mini sessions this year. I have decided after the intense, busy, fall season that I need to spend some quality time with my family and pursue some different interests.

Also I will only be booking newborn sessions in the new year, at this time. That may change in the spring, or it may not, I am still praying fervently about this tough decision. I love photographing your gorgeous babies and families but I am also a very busy homeschooling mom of 4! Time is so precious and babies do not keep so I feel I must slow down and cut back on my availability. Also pricing will change to reflect the worth of my time away from them.  My family ALWAYS comes first. As a fellow mom I’m sure you can understand.  I am always happy to refer you to my favorite photographers for sessions that I am not currently offering.

New pricing and policies for Maternity and Newborn sessions will also go into effect on Feb 1, 2018. You can find Investment info HERE and I am happy to send my new pricing guide as well (currently working on that). My session style has changed a lot over the past 5 years and I have found what I love in an image. My new sessions will reflect my art and my personal style using less props and focusing more on your beautiful baby. Travel for sessions will be limited as well. Complimentary NICU sessions will be limited but are still available.

I look forward to meeting all the new sweet babies that 2018 will bring!

Minimalist Newborn Sessions

I have had a few requests for this type of session and although I love props and dressing up babies for their photos, I also love the simplicity of focusing on just baby. Tiny little fingers on cheeks, soft hair and bubbly lips. This is the tiniest your baby will every be and time you won’t get back!

These sessions are done in the comfort of your own home with my beanbag and soft studio light. Includes ONE neutral color fabric backdrop with multiple womb-like poses including a neutral coordinating wrap and knit bonnet (and optional dainty tieback for girls). 20 high res fully enhanced images with print release is also included.

*Please note, this session is for baby only. If you would like to add parents and siblings, which I highly recommend, please book a Newborn Experience session instead. More info on the INVESTMENT page.

Contact me to book yours today.

PS Outdoor Summer Newborn sessions coming soon!
