Studio Newborn Portraits

Loveland studio newborn pictures focused on capturing the little details of your brand new baby and how your family is changing in this brand new phase of parenthood.
You’re so excited to be welcoming a brand new baby into your lives. Whether it’s your first or your third, you know it will be a totally new and unknown adventure! You want to savor every tiny little detail of your brand new babe and document the ways your family is growing and changing and becoming. With studio newborn photography, you get to just show up and I’ll take care of the rest! The Loveland studio is stocked with all of the props and cute little headbands, plus a play area for siblings and Netflix to keep the whole family entertained while I photograph baby. The sofa is super comfy and perfect for parents who might want to catch up on a little sleep too!

During Your Pregnancy

When you book your session (typically in the 2nd trimester), I’ll send you a questionairre so we can get to know each other better. I’ll fully style your session to suit your style and decor. If you are wanting to document your pregnancy, we will schedule maternity photos for around 32-34  weeks. If your baby is already here, contact me! I will do my best to fit you in because I believe these moments are just so precious!

Happy BIRTHday!

As soon as baby is born you’ll send me an email! For real, I’ll be the second person you contact after your own parents 😉 We will schedule your session for a date before baby is 3 weeks old. That’s when they’re the most bendy and sleepy for those sweet posed photos.

Picture Time!

The day of your session , you’ll have some simple prep instructions to follow that will help baby be sleepy and comfortable. We will start your session with sibling and family photos and after that you get to relax! I’ll take excellent care of your sweet little one while you catch a nap on the sofa or watch a little Netflix.

After Your Session

You’ll receive a beautiful proofing gallery to choose your favorite images from. I’ll hand retouch each image and deliver your digital gallery within 2 weeks. If your collection includes birth announcements those will be delivered promptly as well so you can shout your joy from the rooftops!

Absolutely LOVED working with Kate for maternity and newborn pictures. Not only were the photos catered to our personalities and wants, they were so well done. It was hard to narrow down which ones we wanted to order! Can’t wait to get Kate to take more pictures of our new family soon!

I loved working with Kate for our studio newborn photos. She is a baby whisperer….for real. She was so comfortable with our daughter and knew exactly how to pose and comfort her. I will treasure our photos of her forever! I highly recommend Kate!!

Kate is amazingly talented, her studio was perfect, she has a magical touch with newborns and also made sure our three year old felt special and included. Our experience exceeded our expectations!! We couldn’t have picked a better person to capture this chapter!!!
