The Experience


Is Hello Baby Studios for you?

Do you love light-infused photographs with neutral colors and natural tones?

 Are you drawn towards candid connection over perfectly posed in portraits?

 Do you love photographs that feel natural with lots of emotion?

 Are you looking forward to enjoying your portraits in a relaxed and unhurried way, taking time to laugh and breathe and simply be with those you love most?

 Will you enjoy an experienced artist guiding you through the entire process - from organically styling your session to your final printed artwork that you can hold in your hands and cherish?

 Does the idea of sharing your photographs with your children in 20 years make your heart skip a beat?

If so, Hello baby studios may be the perfect fit for you.

The Hello Baby Studios Portrait Experience

what to expect from inquiry to finished artwork


We would love the opportunity to chat with you and share how awesome a session with Hello Baby Studios will be. We can connect via phone or in person at the studio to answer any questions you might have and create a vision for your session. If we're a good fit, we'll get you on the calendar and chat about all of the details of your session!

Before your session, we’ll talk about your family and how you’d like to be photographed, and I’ll share what I can create for you. We’ll talk about wardrobe, expectations, and how you’d like to enjoy your artwork after it's created.


Step 2: Your SESSION

The day of your session comes with such anticipation and we want you to enjoy it. Since we’ve already talked through all of the details, you’ll be completely prepared for your connection portraits. Most of my clients take advantage of our studio wardrobe, so all you need to do is arrive in your comfy clothes, and I’ll guide you through the entire process and create beautiful photographs that match the vision for our time together.


Step 3: Memory Artwork & Gallery Reveal

This is the most exciting part of our time together! At first you’ll receive your online gallery with the ability to view and share your memories with friends and family. Shortly after, you’ll receive the printed artwork you choose with your session.

Once your session is reserved, we set up a time for us to meet in person or over the phone for a Consultation. During this time we'll go over session details, discuss styling, and chat about how you would like to cherish your artwork.

But most of all, we'll get to know each other and find out what means the most to your family and prepare for our memories-in-the-making. By the day of, we will no longer be strangers, but friends. 


Styling plays such an important role in the overall look and feel of your portrait art. As part of your experience I offer a curated studio wardrobe for mama and baby and provide suggestions for dad and kids.

Simple Props

Our style is Natural, Organic and Timeless and we create artwork with soft light, neutral tones, and simple props that keeps all the focus on you and your little ones. Wooden toys, old-fashioned blocks, cuddly stuffed animals, and classic books are among some of the props you'll find in the Studio.

My approach to posing both newborns and babies is simple, pure, and natural. It is always my goal to ensure both baby and their family have an enjoyable session. I prefer to keep baby loosely wrapped and cozy and don’t force poses on baby that they are not comfortable with. If baby allows I unwrap them at the end of their session and place them in a simple white onesie to capture them just as they are. I have worked with hundreds of babies over the years and am very attuned to their cues, likes and dislikes. It is always my hope that families leave my studio commenting on how relaxing and effortless their session was.
