Tampa Newborn Photographer

Tampa’s newborn photography expert

Trusted by families in Tampa since 2008

I have photographed hundreds of brand new babies over the years but I never take it for granted. Your baby’s safety, comfort and health is always my first priority. In addition to 15 years of experience, I received in-person training early on with some of the top newborn photographers in the industry, including Rachel Vanoven and Laura Brett. I have the best job in the world and I’m humbled and overjoyed every time I capture a precious new life. Your newborn photos will be as special and unique as your baby is, and will be something to treasure for life.

Studio/Posed or Lifestyle Newborn Photography

I offer two different kinds of newborn sessions; studio posed or lifestyle in your own home. Studio sessions include photos of the baby posed and using props. Lifestyle sessions are more casual, and focus more on the whole family and the home environment. For lifestyle sessions I do not use props or pose the baby, although I do guide the posing of the family and how to hold the baby. Can’t decide? Want both? I do offer a discount ($200 off the lifestyle session) if you want to do a posed session at 1-2 weeks old, and a lifestyle session a week or two later.

Newborn Safety

Here are some of the ways I keep your baby safe:
  • All hard surfaces in the studio are cleaned with Lysol in between sessions
  • I am fully vaccinated, including COVID
  • Fabrics are washed with scent-free detergent between uses
  • I keep my nails short and wash my hands before touching baby
  • I will always contact you to reschedule if I, or anyone in my family, shows any symptoms of illness
  • I am always within arm’s reach of the baby during posing in the studio
  • I use composites (photographing my hands out of images) to support baby for certain poses
  • I have 15 years of experience photographing over 700+ newborns
