Golden Newborn and Family Session

Colorado Newborn Photography Session

In-home Golden Newborn Family Photo Session

I was lucky enough to spend a few hours photographing Miss Rielly and her parents for her newborn photo session. What an angel! While reviewing these portraits, a couple of them took my breath away–what a sweet little baby.

When Should You Schedule Newborn Photos

Like all newborns, babies change so quickly. When I last saw Rielly, she looked so different, and I am excited to capture her again now that she has so much personality and charm!

If you are interested in booking a newborn photography session, I always recommend trying to schedule them within the first 12 days of being home. And my sessions are slow-going and relaxing…no need to do anything other than just enjoy that sweet baby of yours!

If you are doing multiple photography sessions in baby’s first year of life, I suggest having your second photo session when your baby can sit up on their own. This is often around 6 months, but of course, it is 5000% normal for all babies to develop differently! Another milestone that parents often capture is when baby turns 1.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
