newborns
Photographing newborns is my specialty. From their tiny little button noses to their soft downy baby fuzz, teeny-tiny fingers and toes and creamy soft skin, each and every new baby is beautiful. The newborn time is so incredibly beautiful and yet so fleeting. My desire is to capture those moments so your memories can be cherished and savored.

When should I schedule my session?

I tend to book out at least 4 – 6 weeks in advance, however if you have already had your baby please do not hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to fit you in. I schedule newborn sessions based on mom’s due date, the actual date to be decided once baby has arrived. The “hands down” best day to photograph a newborn is typically day 5 to 7 post birth. By the time baby has reached approximately 2 weeks and older, newborn acne and colic can begin to set in which makes achieving relaxed, peaceful portraits difficult. I have, however, photographed some babies up to 4 weeks in age as “newborn portraits” successfully.

Where does the session take place?

Sessions typically take place in your home. I have vast experience at finding beautiful light in almost any space. We will discuss the availability of natural light in your home prior to your session taking place. Almost every single image you see on my website takes place in a clients home. The actual size of your home does not matter. I have photographed newborns in spaces from small city apartments to 5,000 square foot homes with the same results.

How long does a typical session last?

I am a firm believer in following the baby’s lead. Every baby is unique in their own beautiful way. I will never “force” a baby into a pose. Expect a newborn session to last between 3-4 hours allowing plenty of time for feedings and cuddling.

What is your newborn session fee?

I have two different options for newborn sessions.  One is a set of high resolution digital file collections, the other is a print collection option with a session fee.  My average client invests between $600-$1,000 for their newborn session.

Do you charge an additional session fee for multiples (twins/triplets, etc…)?

No.  I celebrate the opportunity to photograph multiples!

What it the typical turn around time for photos after the session?

Each image  in your gallery is hand crafted by me.  I do not run your images through a batch editing program where every image receives the same treatment.  Therefore, please allow 3 weeks for your image gallery to become available.

“Anya photographed our 3rd born child. The results were beyond what I could have imagined.

What was most amazing was watching her process. I worried that our newborn wouldn’t “cooperate” for a lengthy

photo session. My husband called her the baby whisperer and it was a perfect description. She quietly spoke with him

as she positioned him for various shots and he peacefully complied. Anya didn’t miss a beat as he pooped

and spit up on her gear. It was a relaxing session for all of us and our friends/family are still talking about the birth

announcements – truly works of art. My only regret is that I don’t have the same for our first two children.

I HIGHLY recommend this investment; we now have priceless photos that we will forever treasure.”
