You spend 9 months looking forward to welcoming your baby, but so often I hear from moms that the first few weeks of life with your child are a blur. I’m here to freeze this time and document your new family. My newborn photoshoots don’t happen in a chilly hospital room, they happen in a warm, loving environment where you and your child feel most at-home.
Once you say yasss to a newborn photo session, submit an inquiry form. You’ll get a call from our Client Experience Manager, Jenn, within 48-hours. She’ll get to know you, give you details about our newborn photography experience, and help you select a date. Once your retainer and date are official, Jenn will send you our newborn prep-guide that outlines how you can prepare for your newborn photoshoot, including what to wear, what to expect, do’s/don’t, and how to make it as stress-free on yourself - and baby - as possible.

Your baby is here and it’s finally time for your first family photos! We will meet at your session location, whether that’s in your home or a special spot of your choice. I always encourage parents to bring props such as sonograms, baby shoes, special family blankets, or any other items you may want to use as a prop. It allows for more photo ops and gives it a unique touch. I will give your family posing directions, so just show up ready for a good time - little one in toe!
We’ll schedule your newborn photo reveal session for a week or so after your shoot. Bring the little one and see your photos for the first time in our private viewing room, where we’ll review the keepsake collections together and pick your favorite shots. This is the only chance you’ll have to order photos, so I’ll help you choose the perfect ones! (For your family’s digital privacy, any photos that are not selected will be permanently purged.) Any products you order during the reveal session can be delivered within 2-3 weeks.

It doesn’t matter if this is your first or fifthteenth child, the days when your newborn can fit in your hands are limited and precious! Every child is worth having their own special photos with Mama.
These photos will be treasured by you, your family, and friends for years. They’ll be something you can share with your child to show them how much they’re loved.
We had an amazing experience being photographed by Angelica. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and directed us the whole time. I felt we got so many shots in; and sure enough, at the photo reveal, there was so many beautiful photos that we could barely narrow it down

I LOVE LOVE LOVE every session and the photo and video magic she’s created for me and my family, literally obsessed! Angelica is amazing with every aspect — the interviews, the check-ins, the follow-ups. She walks you through every step so you know what to expect. And her craft! The woman has skills — and she’s really passionate about it and was definitely born to do this!

Within the first 21 days of the baby being born. That is when the baby is still sleepy, moldable, and tiny!
Plan ahead to secure a spot! Most moms choose to book our Baby and Belly bundles, which include a maternity session and newborn session. (Plus, you get a sweet discount!) Mamas who are just looking to book a newborn session should still book in their first or second trimester, based on your due date. This will give us time to plan and prepare for your session.
You can wear your favorite, comfortable clothing. I will bring a few swaddles and props to use. In the newborn prep-guide, I will outline different outfit options and places to shop if you would like to purchase special outfits or swaddles.
Absolutely! I will make outfit recommendations in the newborn prep-guide for the whole family. Just tell my Customer Experience Manager, Jenn, who will be in the photoshoot at the time of booking.
We try to keep your little one in a safe, cozy environment, so we recommend doing newborn photo shoots in your home. If there’s an AirBNB in Jacksonville or St. Augustine that you like, or a family member’s house you’d rather use, we can get those details in your consultation call.
Great question! Babies come when they’re ready, so when you book a newborn session with us you are not scheduling a specific date. Instead, we put you on our list of guaranteed spots (limited spots per month). After your little one arrives, simply let us know and we'll provide you with a few dates to choose from within the first 8-21 days of birth. The one exception to this is if you know you're having a scheduled c-section or induction. If that happens, we will mark off a tentative date for your session and confirm it in the week you’re due! But again, the earlier you schedule your newborn session the better.
This is a pre-scheduled appointment about a week or so after your session, where you will come into the studio to see your baby’s photos for the first time! We will review the products you picked out together and select your favorite photos. I’ll be there to guide you and am willing to be the tie breaker if you just can’t decide which photo is cuter! You can choose which digital collection you want after seeing your gallery (unless pre-selected). This is the only chance you can order your photos. Any photos that are not selected will be purged permanently to protect your privacy.
Most newborn photoshoots are at 11 am. This is flexible depending on our schedules.
We block off 2 hours in case it is needed. Most newborn photoshoots are about 1.5 hours. Some babies need extra time to eat or settle, which is totally normal. Please do NOT schedule any appointments right after the session so you can avoid feeling stressed or rushed if your baby is taking longer to settle.
Yasss, Queen! We’ll go over all your digital image options and products in your initial consultations and reveal session.
