2018 newborn session information
Thank you so much for taking the time to inquire. Newborn photography is very special and requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with your precious new baby. Your photos will be cherished memories forever. The actual session is only the beginning of creating these precious memories; after your session I will spend an extensive amount of time selecting and editing the best images to showcase in your gallery. I can say without a doubt that working with newborns is my passion.
I am a professional photographer serving the Dallas Fort Worth area. I specialize in custom portraiture of newborns and my studio is located in Fort Worth, Tx.

the newborn session fee (non-refundable) | $150
The session fee is due at the time of booking and is non refundable. This covers Nicole’s time and talent
BOOKING YOUR SESSION: The best time to book your newborn session is during your 5th or 6th month of pregnancy (or earlier) to ensure I’m available when your little bundle of joy arrives. I plan for 3-4 sessions a week and my schedule fills up very fast.
The best time to photograph your newborn is between 6-21 days while they are still in that sleepy and curly stage. After three weeks of age, they tend to be disturbed while sleeping. They can also become colicky or baby acne can start to flare.
PREPPING FOR YOUR NEWBORN SESSION: I ask that you nurse or feed your baby right before you leave to head my way. A full baby = a sleepy baby. If at all possible try to keep your newborn stimulated a couple of hours prior to our session so he/she will be ready to fall asleep in a cuddly and warm blanket. The best way to photograph your newborn is in their birthday suit. Clothes tend to be bulky and awkward.
SIBLINGS/Parents: I do welcome sibling/parent shots during a newborn session, If you are wanting to include more family members there may be an additional fee
PROPS: I supply all of the props but I welcome any props you may have. I am always open to new ideas! If you see something you like in any of the galleries, be sure to mention it before your session.
what to expect from me and important information:
Photographing newborns is my passion. I spend a lot of time getting every little finger and toe positioned perfectly when photographing your little bundle. First and foremost, it is important to me for your baby look comfortable and peaceful in the photographs.
When arriving at the studio, be prepared to just sit back and enjoy the session. I will take over as soon as you arrive, undressing baby and getting him/her used to me. We can take as many breaks as we need to feed and keep your newborn calm. Also, a pacifier is a great way to soothe baby during the session so feel free to bring one if your baby takes one. Many newborns are gassy; to ease their discomfort I ask that you bring a bottle of gas drops to the session just in case. Gas drops are safe for the newest of babies.
My studio is kept at 80 degrees to keep baby comfortable for the session as they will be nude for a majority of it. So feel free to dress in layers or dress light.
I will play white noise during your session to mimic the sounds of the womb.
There will be accidents and I’m perfectly fine with that. Almost every newborn I photograph does have an accident on my backdrops. So please don’t worry about that.
Be prepared to spend up to 3 hours at my studio for the top two packages.
