professional newborn portraits -- relax and enjoy your baby!.


professional Newborn Portraits,

an all-inclusive experience so you can relax and enjoy your baby.

Let me guess...

you’re considering DIY-ing your baby’s newborn photos to save some money,

... so you’ve been scouring etsy trying to find little outfits & wondering if you can google how to do some of those newborn poses. 

When I had my first baby, I thought I could DIY his newborn photos (and I was NOT a photographer back then). How hard could it be, right? Y'all, it turned out like the "nailed it" photos on pinterest..
It's such a huge regret of mine that I didn't hire a professional to do it right. 

8 months later, I was too busy & overwhelmed to print any of the photos, so they stayed on my hard drive. When that cute lil' baby was big enough to crawl around, he corrupted my hard drive and the few photos I had of his newborn days were gone.

Don't follow 2008 Tavia's example. 

how hard can it be?

Here’s what you get with a newborn photography session:

-- Consultation, so I can get to know your family and your vision for the session.

-- Professional Hair and Makeup for mom, you have enough to think about, all you have to do is get to the studio!  

-- Studio filled with backdrops, wraps, hats and headbands, so you don’t have to bring 1 single thing (unless you want to!)

-- Step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for the session, after photographing over 100 newborns, I’ve learned these tips to keep babies sleepy and happy (after the session, moms try to take me home with them to keep baby asleep at night :)

-- In-person design and ordering appointment, so you’ll have the perfect printed piece from your session.

Before we even conceived, I started saving to hire Tavia. I had to have her, and it was the BEST decision. I'm in love with every photo she took. Tavia is absolutely worth the investment.

Tavia is meticulous and pays attention to small details. She absolutely captures a feeling and not just an image.


Let's chat!

I'm ready to book my consultation!

here's what others have asked: 

How long will it take to get my photos? 
You will see your photos 10-14 business days after the session. You will leave with the your custom USB of digital images that day! 

What if my baby doesn't sleep for the session?
It's rare that I can't baby to sleep for a portion of the session! I have photographed over 100 newborns and I have lots of tricks up my sleeve ;) 

Can my husband and other children be in the photos, too?
Yes! The whole family is welcome and encouraged to be in the session for no additional fee. 

How much is this going to cost?
Most clients spend around $800 on their newborn session, and that includes all digital images as well as an art piece for your home!

Do I need to bring anything?
I have a studio filled with props, backdrops, wraps, hats and bows. You're welcome to bring pieces that are special to your family!

I saw "xyz" idea on pinterest and I really love "xyz" pose, is this something you can do? 
I welcome parent's ideas for the session. In fact, I will send you a detailed questionnaire to discover your desires for the session. We will also discuss this in your pre-session consultation!

I'm nervous about my images being used online.
A small number of my clients choose not to share images online, and 100% respect that choice. Please let me know at your consultation that you'd prefer your baby's images not be used online.
