does planning a photo session

Trust me, I know! Bringing home a baby comes with a lot of changes, 
and then you have to pack up and leave the house for a photo session?

with a brand new baby sound overwhelming?

Yep! You read that right. You do not have to leave the house for your newborn session! I bring my studio to you! Being able to stay at home and not take baby out makes it easy for a recovering mama as those first few days are already tough. 

Wondering what you need to purchase for the session?

Nothing! I offer a large variety of props, outfits, wraps, hats and headbands. Once the baby arrives I don’t want my clients to have to worry about what the baby will wear. I’ll take care of everything for you!

let me show you how it works

I recommend booking your newborn session while you’re still pregnant. I only take a limited number of newborns a month, and I want to ensure that I’ll have availability once your baby is born. 

Once baby arrives we will schedule your session within the next few weeks. A day or two before the shoot, I’ll send you some prep information that will help us have a successful newborn session. All the tips and tricks to get your baby super sleepy. 

The day of the session, I show up at your house and set up my studio in a small space. You can sit back and relax while I get all those sweet poses of your newest love.

Owner and photographer at Still Happiness Photography. I love pictures and I’m sure you do too! But sometimes pictures with just our phones isn’t enough to really capture the moments we want to remember. I love documenting these amazing milestones in your life because these are days and details you never want to forget, but will be gone so quickly.
