Time doesn't stand still...
Time already feels like it's rushing by, and you don't want to miss a moment or forget this special time when they are so tiny and new. However, you're unsure how to do this while trying to manage everything else you do while having a newborn.
- Don't know when to schedule your session?
- Unsure if you should be in the portraits?
- Concerned your baby (or their siblings) won't behave?
I was a first-time mom getting pictures of my two-week-old baby boy and had no idea what to expect or how my baby would react. Crystal is so organized - her prep sheet answers every question you may have leading up to your session. I had a general idea of the aesthetic, and she took my vision to the next level! I had so many people reaching out to tell me how unique and beautiful they were.
Crystal is MAGIC!! Her artistry, skills, and attention to detail are all unmatched! I had a vision in mind that I conveyed to Crystal, and she was able to execute it and make it more amazing than I could've imagined. I have had the privilege of working with Crystal twice now for a newborn and one-year photo session! Both experiences were so pleasant & I am definitely hooked now! She won't be getting rid of me anytime soon.
From start to finish, Crystal was absolutely amazing. I know she is extremely busy, and she still found a spot to do my photos last minute. We are absolutely in love with our photos!!! Her studio is amazing and has endless options to choose from. I don't think there are the right words to express how happy we are. I would recommend Crystal to anyone looking for a newborn photographer.
How it works.
Things start with the two of us connecting in person or over the phone. I'll answer your questions and discuss your vision for the newborn session. I want to make sure we go over every detail so that your session is not hurried or rushed.
Thanks to our pre-planning, I will have everything ready so we can get right to work. You can sit back and relax on my comfy couch and enjoy refreshments and some 'you' time OR watch me work my magic. As I bring your vision to life, know that your baby's safety is my priority!
The best (and hardest) part! You'll see your images and select your favorites. I'll guide you as you narrow down your favorites and choose images for albums and wall art. I want you to have art you'll enjoy as your little one grows up!
Don't miss a moment...
I often hear that parents skip a newborn session because they feel it will add to the chaos of those first few weeks. However, later on, they wish they had taken the time to document that special time when they were so tiny.
This is why I take the hassle out of planning a newborn session. My complimentary wardrobe closet has hundreds of options for you to choose from. Before your session, you will select the items you want to use so we can create artwork that focuses on the connection between you, your family, and your newborn.
My simple, easy, and relaxed process is designed to make your newborn portraits feel like a gift that takes you back each time you thumb through an album or look at the portraits on your walls.
So now you have a bit of insight into how newborn sessions work, I'm sure you have some questions. The most common are "What to wear?" (don't worry, I have that covered), and of course, "What will this cost?".

Hello, I'm Crystal!
I'm a boutique newborn and family photographer. I love making sure new parents feel cared for while I document this special stage for your family. At my boutique studio, I provide a custom experience that ends with the highest quality fine art products.
You and your baby's comfort is my top priority. I will connect with you before your session and go over all the details, from where the session will happen (typically my studio) to the types of props or accessories you'd like so that everything is ready to go when you arrive for your session. I want you to be comfortable and know what to expect (Hint: very often, it's that nothing goes 100% to plan. We are working with newborns, after all!) and that I will be ready for it all!
If you forget anything, I have a fully stocked changing table filled with organic baby products. There's a waiting area with snacks, drinks, and entertainment for Mom, Dad, and siblings so you can sit back and relax while I capture those tiny toes, soft sleepy smile, and all the 1,001 things you love about your little one!
I can't wait to connect with you and create custom artwork you will love.
