Newborn Photographer Charleston, SC

 Your Charleston Newborn Photography Experience

 Welcoming a new baby into the world is such a joyous time in your life! Whether you’re first-time parents embarking on this brand new adventure or growing your family by ten tiny fingers and toes, you are entering into a new chapter in life and these moments will pass you by in the blink of an eye. A newborn portrait session is the perfect opportunity to document every tiny detail, freezing them in time forever. 


your baby's


Newborn sessions typically last 2-3 hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, and a few snuggles along the way.  All of my newborn sessions are baby-led. This means that all of their movements and cues are carefully observed throughout the session to ensure their comfort.

Scheduling your newborn photography session

To ensure availability on my calendar, I encourage expecting mothers to book your newborn session during your second trimester. Once you have booked your newborn session and your session fee is paid, and your booking form is signed, I will save your due date on my calendar. From there, you will contact me ASAP once your bundle of joy arrives and we will set your actual session date. Studio-style newborn sessions typically take place between 5-19 days old. After your session is booked, we will further discuss color options, possible setups, props, and accessories in order to fully customize your session!

Have questions about our services? Learn more about our newborn photography sessions in the section below!

How long does a newborn session take?

Newborn sessions typically last 2-3 hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, and a few snuggles along the way to keep baby content. During the session, we will work based on baby’s cues to capture a variety of newborn poses, sweet family photos, those tiny little features that will soon be just a memory.

How far in advance should I book my session?

The sooner, the better! I encourage expectant parents to contact me during their second trimester to ensure availability on my calendar. I only book a small number of sessions each month so availability is very limited. Newborn sessions typically take place between 5-19 days of age. Sessions are available for older newborns, with the understanding that baby may be more awake, alert, and possibly swaddled for the vast majority of the session. Babies up to about five weeks of age will be considered “newborns.”

Are parents and siblings included in the session?

Absolutely! Your session fee includes parent sibling, and family shots if you so desire. I always encourage parents to join in, even if it’s only a few shots. These are moments you just can’t get back. Let’s make the most of them!

What if my baby gets fussy during our session?

During every newborn session, baby runs the show. All of my newborn sessions are baby-led, which means that I follow cues given by the baby. If baby gets fussy, we can take a small break for a feed, diaper change, or just to take a pause. I encourage all of my newborn mamas to take a thorough look over the newborn session prep guide to help the session flow more smoothly.

When do we get our photos?

Approximately 2 weeks after your session takes place, we will meet again for your Viewing and Ordering Appointment. At this appointment, you will view the full gallery for the first time, select all of your favorite images, and place your customized artwork order. You only purchase what you absolutely love! 


If you are pregnant and still planning your newborn photoshoot, you might also be wondering whether we can take care of your maternity photography. The answer is absolutely! You can book us in advance as your maternity and Charleston newborn baby photographer.


Absolutely! As an experienced newborn photographer in Charleston, SC, we understand that protecting your baby from bacteria and viruses is essential, especially during those early days.

This is why we ensure that our family photography studio is always sanitized before and after use for your baby's safety. Our Charleston, SC, newborn photographer and assistants will also wear a mask to prevent the spread of germs.


The truth is that new parents often have a lot to do! There are new routines to settle into, and baby photography may be the last thing on your mind. Taking newborn photos on your phone should be sufficient, right?

Although this may seem like a good idea at first, you will likely regret not hiring a family photographer to capture these moments that go by so quickly.

Moreover, a professional photographer will have the skills and resources to create something truly memorable and capture timeless images with details of your precious little one. With the help of a portrait studio like ours, you can photograph your newborn sleeping before the photos can be ruined with a blink.
