Welcome to the bread and butter of Minted Shutter Photography! My passion for capturing your precious new human is built on a love for babies and the art of capturing them at a tender and precious age. An age that is so short and so memorable.
Studio newborn sessions take place between 7-14 days old. However, older babies are more than welcome in the studio. The older your baby becomes, the more aware they become of the world around them, making it more difficult to wrap them in womb like wraps and position them in those squishy sleepy poses.
You're welcome to book your studio session as soon as you'd like before your baby arrives, usually after the first trimester. When your baby arrives, we will connect to officially schedule your session. Once your session is scheduled, I send a questionnaire that allows you to share with me your color preferences and tastes for your experience. Your session is then fully styled by myself before you arrive. All props, swaddles, outfits, headbands and more are provided at the studio.

Trusting someone with your new baby is no small feat. I feel you momma! My palms sweat just thinking about handing my little one over to every aunt at the latest family gathering. With over 8 years in the newborn biz, I have taken numerous workshops, worked with hundreds of babies, and learned from some of the best in the industry. In fact, my work in newborn photography is forever evolving and the education never ends. There is no such thing as a "certified newborn photographer" (although there should be), I can promise you an experience that has been practiced, trained, and safety centered.
When your baby comes to my studio, I treat them as my own with the gentle and tender care they deserve. I will never push a pose or shot on a baby who signals they are uncomfortable. I strive to create timeless and minimal images that will stand the test of time, free of an over abundance of props and crazy colors. Each baby and their personality is unique and I prefer to go with their flow.
I am currently still wearing a mask with all newborns in the studio. Used fabrics are all washed between each use and equipment is sanitized just before we begin. I am careful to be sure I don't bring any icky bugs to the studio with me if I know I have been exposed to someone who is sick or am not feeling well and always ask my clients to do the same.
