Northern Colorado Newborn Photo Studio | Smallest CSU Fan

Welcome to the newborn studio sweet baby Mackinnon!

Fun Fact: Mackinnon was the last baby to be photographed in my Fort Collins photo studio. He did not disappoint! In fact, he was perfect.

Newborn and Family Photos

Mack and his family came into my Fort Collins studio recently for his newborn photos. I love the colors his family chose for their clothes. The navy and maroon photographed beautifully! He slept for most of his photos making my job so easy and enjoyable.

Newborn and Sibling Photos

Parents often worry about how older siblings are going to do for photo sessions. With 3 boys of my own, I know how important it is for big brothers to feel involved. I love photographing siblings and their new baby’s!

Newborn Portraits

Mackinnon is so sweet. I could have held him all day! I absolutely love photographing newborns. I love helping parents capture all the tiny details. The small things are hard to remember but a photograph can bring you right back to that moment in time.

I loved photographing Mack and his family.

Thanks for visiting the studio sweet boy!

Fort Collins Newborn Photography | Hello Little One

Welcome to the newborn photo studio baby Selasie!

Selasie recently came into my Fort Collins newborn photo studio for his newborn photos. He was absolutely amazing for me! From blanket poses to the family poses, he was relaxed and sleepy through it all.

Newborns Change So Fast

If you are a parent, then you already know, babies change so much in so little time. It is simultaneously amazing and hard to watch. You really only get to have a newborn for about 2 months. Photographing babies during this time means so much to me. I want parents to be able to look at their baby’s photos and remember what it felt like to hold that sweet little baby.

Newborn and Family Photos

I love photographing families with their new baby. There is just something special about creating the first family photos for parents. It never gets old. Seeing parents interact with their new baby is so sweet to watch. You should have seen how sweet and cooperative Selasie’s big brothers were for the photos. They made it so easy for me to get the cutest sibling photos.

Thanks for coming into the newborn studio Selasie! I had the best time taking your photos.

Fort Collins Newborn Photo Studio | Triplet Newborn Photography

Welcome to the newborn photo studio Jaxson, Peyton and Naomi!

This sweet trio recently came into my Fort Collins newborn photo studio for their first photos. I had so much fun with them! Photographing 3 babies at one time is as tricky as you would imagine but it was so much fun!

Keeping Everyone Safe

Although I have photographed several sets of twins, this was my first time photographing triplets. The most important part of every newborn session is keeping the baby safe. When you have 3 newborns at one time, you need to use an extra level of caution. I knew I would need an extra set of hands(or two). Two of my amazing friends came to help! Bri and Jessica, I couldn’t have done it without you! I feel like I should add, several other people volunteered to come also. I had to keep it to only two helpers because my old Fort Collins photos studio was a little on the small side.

Newborn and Family Photos

One of my favorite parts of every newborn session is the family photos. There is just something special about creating the first family photos for parents. It never gets old. Seeing parents interact with their new baby (or in this case babies) is so sweet to watch. It was fun to see both parents could hold all three babies at once.

Thanks for coming into the newborn studio Jaxson, Peyton and Naomi! I truly had so much fun.

Fort Collins Newborn Photography | Cutest Little Keeper

Welcome to the newborn photo studio baby Judah!

Judah recently came into my Fort Collins photo studio for his newborn photos. His parents had so many great ideas for his photos. We of course had to do a Harry Potter set up for Judah. His parents are big fans. His nursery and baby book are both Harry Potter themed. Judah’s mom told me, she stood on the stack of Harry Potter books for a maternity photo! So much fun.

Newborns Change So Fast

If you are a parent, then you already know, babies change so much in so little time. It is simultaneously amazing and hard to watch. You really only get to have a newborn for about 2 months. Photographing babies during this time means so much to me. I want parents to be able to look at their baby’s photos and remember what it felt like to hold that sweet little baby.

Newborn Client Closet

At the beginning of every newborn session, I have the parents pick out an outfit, wraps and backgrounds that they want to use. Letting the parents pick what we use allows for endless possibilities and color combinations. If I was the one picking, everything would look the same every photo session. How boring would that be?

The Rainbow After The Storm

I’ve sat here for the last 30 minutes trying to figure out what to write here. Two of my boys are rainbow babies, so I know how heartbreaking the storm really is. The other side of that is, I know how incredibly special it is to finally hold your rainbow baby.

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,

Judy Garland – Wizard of oz

Thanks for coming into the newborn studio Judah. I truly enjoyed photographing you and all your amazing hair!

Fort Collins Newborn Photography | And Baby Makes Three

Welcome to the newborn photo studio baby Micah!

Micah recently came into my Fort Collins newborn photo studio for his first photos. I had so much fun with him! He let do all of the fun stuff. From blanket poses to the bed prop, he was relaxed and sleepy through it all.

Newborns Change So Fast

If you are a parent, then you already know, babies change so much in so little time. It is simultaneously amazing and hard to watch. You really only get to have a newborn for about 2 months.

Special Items From Home

Bringing items to the studio that are special to you, will really make your photos unique. I love seeing and hearing about each unique piece. Whether a family member made a blanket that you want to incorporate into the photos or if you want a memorable photo of your baby with the flag of Kenya, I am ready to get creative with you!

Newborn and Family Photos

One of my favorite parts of every newborn session is the family photos. There is just something special about creating the first family photos for parents. It never gets old. Seeing parents interact with their new baby is so sweet to watch.

How Often Should I Get Professional Photos of My Baby?

How often should you get professional photos of your baby done? That fully depends on you. I’m going to list the most popular frequencies and ages of baby photo sessions so you can decide for yourself.


ONE AND DONE. One photo session during your baby’s first year is a favorite for many. Many people save up a long time to have professional photos done. They put their whole budget into one photo session. Most people who only do one photo session during their baby’s first year choose between a newborn session or a 1st birthday session.


TWO FOR YOU? Most people who choose to do two photo sessions during their baby’s first year usually do newborn and a 1st birthday session. This is a fun way to catch the beginning and the end of their first year. It’s amazing to see all the ways they have change in a year.


THREE FOR ME. Three photo sessions in the first year is my favorite! Newborn, sitter and 1st birthday is the perfect combination to fully see all the changes at every major milestone.


FOUR OR MORE. If you don’t want to miss a moment this choice might be for you. I photographed my youngest every month when he was a baby. Knowing he was my last was really hard for me. Those photos mean so much to me!

1 Month
2 Months
3 Months
4 Months
5 Months

To Be Continued… See you next month sweet girl!

6 Months

What do you think? How often would you like to get your baby photographed?

Should I Get Professional Newborn Photos of My Baby?

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little bigger than they are today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them. Study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today. It will be over before you know it.”

Jen Hatmaker

We all know babies change fast. As a mother of 3 wild boys, I know first-hand how fast their sweet little personalities change and how important it is to cherish all the little details that change ever so quickly. In a blink of an eye, I went from snuggling my babies to sending them off to pre-school. It goes way too quickly.

When I think back to when my little ones were babies, there are several moments that stick out; the first time I got to hold my baby, first family photo, first bath, and all the baby snuggles. The memories that are most vivid for me are the ones I can look back at through a photograph. I can’t even begin to tell you how important my kiddos baby photos are to me. They take me back to a time that I don’t get to have again except in memories and photographs.

As important as those baby photos are to me, I wouldn’t hang them on my wall. Huh!?! What? I didn’t get professional photos of my boys done. I thought I could do it myself. I was wrong. The photos are dark, blurry with wrinkled backgrounds. I love them because that is what I have but oh how I wish I had photos I was proud to display.

Summer
2011

Are these photos a little blurry? Yes. Was I using a tablecloth for a background? Yes. Do I know why he is not centered in the photo? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. Are you laughing yet? I am.

Fall
2014

Are these photos still a little blurry? Yes. Did I think putting photos in black and white would distract people from the blurriness? Yep. Was I using a bed sheet for a background? Yes. Do I know why I didn’t de-wrinkle the background? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. I sure did. It’s okay to laugh. Seriously, go ahead.

Spring
2018

Are these photos still blurry? No. Thankfully, I had learned a few things by this time. Did I post these on social media? Yes. Would I put these on my walls? Yes. Is it important to have professional portraits of your baby? Yes!

Winter 2022

Things to Consider

Professional photography is a luxury experience that not everyone can afford. Is the investment worth it for you? Here is a list of things to consider:

  • Is it important to you to have photos of from when your baby is still a baby?
  • Do you like having properly composed, well lit, in focus photos?
  • Do you want photos you would be proud to hang on your walls?
  • Would you like to relax knowing your baby is in good hands for their photos?

Fort Collins Newborn Photography | Sweet and Sleepy

Welcome to the newborn photo studio baby Nolan!

Nolan recently came into my Fort Collins newborn photo studio for his first photos. I had so much fun with him! He let do all of the fun stuff. From blanket poses to the bed prop, he seemed to love it all.

Northern Colorado Newborn Photography | You Have My Whole Heart

Welcome to the newborn photo studio sweet Mila!

Newborn Photos at Local Studio

Mila recently visited me at my Fort Collins newborn photo studio. She is just so adorable! She slept for most of her session thanks to her parents keeping her awake on the car ride to the studio. This can be incredibly hard especially if you have a bit of a drive to get to the studio. I’m always so impressed with parents that have a bit of a drive and still manage to keep their baby awake.

Having my newborn photo studio located in Fort Collins is great. It is central to many towns in Northern Colorado. Milliken, Wellington, Firestone, Greeley, Eaton, Johnstown, Denver, Loveland and even Cheyenne; a lot my families come from other towns to get photos of their babies done, just like Mila.

Newborn Photos for “Older” Babies

Mila was born a few weeks before Christmas. Her family was able to snuggle her and enjoy her all through the holidays. When she came in for her photos, she was about 6 weeks new. Typically, the older the baby gets the less they sleep for newborn photos. Mila was an exception to this rule. She slept beautifully and did absolutely amazing.

Leading up to having your baby there is so much to think about and organize. Sometimes things like newborn photos can slip our mind or maybe it’s not even on our radar. I don’t limit the age of my “newborns” to under 1 month for their photos. I believe every baby deserves beautiful photos no matter their age. If I limited the age of my newborns, I wouldn’t have met Mila and her wonderful family.

Baby and Family Photos

I love getting to photograph families and their new babies. Mila is so lucky; she has wonderful grandma and three big brothers to help look after her. They clearly love her so much already!

I love helping parents capture all the tiny details. The small things are hard to remember but a photograph can bring you right back to that moment in time.

It was so much fun to photograph Mila and her family.

Thanks for coming into the studio and brightening my day sweet Mila!

Fort Collins Newborn Studio | Sweetest Little Superhero

Welcome to the newborn photo studio Leon!

Leon and his family came into my Fort Collins studio a few weeks ago for his newborn photos. He was born a few weeks before Christmas and his family was able to cuddle him all through the holidays.

Newborn and Family Photos

I love photographing new parents with their tiny babies! Excitement and joy are clearly visible on their faces. These sweet moments are exactly what made me fall in love with newborn photography.

All three of them did amazing. His parents were able to even get him cozy enough for a little smile.

Newborn Portraits

Leon is so incredibly sweet. I could have held him all day! Even though he was a little over a month old, he slept for a lot of his photos. Sleepy babies are the most fun to photograph. They let you do really fun poses. His parents brought in a few outfits making his photos truly unique. He is the cutest little superhero around!

I absolutely love photographing newborns. I love helping parents capture all the tiny details. The small things are hard to remember but a photograph can bring you right back to that moment in time.

Thanks for visiting the studio, Leon!
