Baltimore Newborn Photographer

In home newborn sessions are very laid back and easy for a new mom. You don't have to rush out the door and pack a huge bag for your baby. Just stay at home and let me come to you. I travel all around Baltimore and Maryland for newborn sessions. Plus you get to show off all the cute details of your nursery you worked so hard on!

Newborn sessions are typically done within the first 2-3 weeks of your baby being born.  I limit my newborn bookings per month so I can allow for wiggle room since babies come on their own schedule! 

They really do change so quickly,  pretty much daily which is why it's important to capture all those fresh, newborn tiny features! 

You have a million things to get ready for when your baby arrives (or do if your baby is already here). Your photography session should add to that list. That is why I am here every step of the way! When you book your photoshoot I will send you a preparation guide for getting your home, self and baby ready for your in home photography session. I also help you get outfits together and have a client closet of dresses for mom!

Read more below on how it looks to work together. I promise you are in the right place!

Have A Look

I am a Baltimore newborn photographer specializing in newborn family photography. I love to include the whole family in our session instead of having baby in props and wraps.  Through both posed and candid shots I aim to capture the connection and sweet moments that come with having a newborn. And of course all their tiny features.

What is your style of newborn photography?

Question 1 of 6

Those first 2 weeks after you deliver are ideal.  This is because babies are generally still very sleepy at this point. Also babies change so quick from week to week.

That being said,  as a 2 time C-section mom, I have chose to do my kids newborn photos at 3-4 weeks. It took me until this point to feel  pretty much fully recovered from my surgery.  We will talk about your preferences and see what works best for your family. 

When is best for a newborn session?

Question  2 of 6

There is no such thing as too soon.  I do limit the amount of newborns I take on in a month due to the nature of not knowing when they will arrive. This allows me to be able to fit everyone in but in turn limits the amount that I can commit to in a month. 

How far in advance should I book my newbron session?


Newborn sessions take place in your home. As a Baltimore Newborn Photographer I travel all over Baltimore and Maryland. I frequent Baltimore County, Harford County and Baltimore City  most, but will travel outside those areas as well (travel free may apply).

We typically have our session in both the nursery and/or master bedroom. Sometimes the nursery isn't finished or the bedroom isn't "photo ready" which is totally fine.  We will figure out what works best in your home.

Upon booking you will receive a newborn preparation guide that will help you on  preparing the rooms you choose to have them looking great for our session.

Where do we have our session?

QUESTION  4 of 6

After our session I get right to work on editing your gallery. You will receive your gallery electronically within 2 weeks from our session date. Trust me, I am just as excited to show you as you are to see them!

How long does it take to receive my gallery?


Most newborn sessions last 60-90  minutes. This allows time for feeding and changing breaks as needed.

The Newborn Experience


Take the stress out of trying to figure out what everyone will wear. Each session includes a styling link to coordinate outfits. I also offer a custom outfit planning service add on. During your styling consultation we will go over preferred style, sizes and budget. I will put together a style board for you and your family with links for easy shopping. You can also browse through my client closet and use one of my dresses. More on that below!


Upon booking you will receive your Newborn Session Prep Guide. It covers How to prepare your home, Outfit do's & don'ts with color palette suggestions, How to get your baby ready, Posing tips and FAQ.


I have a collection of gorgeous dresses that are available for you to use during your session.

Step 1 of 5

After we go over the details, schedule your session ASAP. Newborn sessions are often scheduled a few months in advance so available dates can be limited. This isn't meant to pressure you but it is always best to book early.

A $250 session fee is all you need to get on my schedule. You don't have to pick a set number of images until you receive your gallery. That way you only are paying for the images you love!

An investment into photography is something you will cherish your entire lifetime and generations beyond. Your baby will be changing right before your eyes, day by day. You will be surprised at how quickly the memory of this amazing time will fade but your photographs will remain. These photographs are telling your story. Your families story.

The Investment Details

"Julie knocked it out of the ballpark. She took my maternity and newborn pictures as well as a newborn video. Beautiful. She really got to know us as a family and perfectly captured this special and magical time of our lives. The photos and video are works of art that I'll always cherish. Thank you, Julie!"

"Julie is without a doubt one of the most skilled photographers I’ve ever worked with! She did both my newborn shoot and my maternity shoot and my friends and family were blown away. I’ve had so many people say that my maternity shoot photos could be on the cover of a book they are that impressive! My newborn shoot was really tough because my baby would not stop crying the whole time, but Julie still got the most amazing pictures and made it seem like nothing out of the ordinary happened at all. I would recommend her to anybody in a second. Not only is she extremely skilled in what she does but she is incredibly professional, attentive, and kind. I can’t say enough great things about Julie and her business!"

"Julie did a wonderful job with my maternity/family photos! When I reached out to Julie initially, she was quick to respond, helpful in answering all of my questions, and accommodating with arranging a place and date/time for our photoshoot. We asked Julie to do our photos at our home -- she gladly trekked around our property up hills and through hay and soybean fields to get us the "harvest season" feel we wanted for our photos. She perfectly captured our vision! She sent us a sneak peek the following day and we were blown away. The rest of the pictures she sent later that week were just as beautiful. We plan to do annual photos for our family greeting card and can't wait to ask Julie to photograph our family again!"

"We used Julie for our newborn shoot and she was amazing! Super responsive and so helpful from timing, to planning outfits and getting pictures back to you quickly. The platform she uses for communication and payment made the process so seamless and I really appreciated how organized it made it all. Would highly recommend Julie!"

"We loved working with Julie for our maternity and newborn photos. From her client closet (I was super grateful to not have to buy a long maternity dress for a one-time use) to her prompt replies to her honest, open, reasonable pricing to her thoughtfulness in making sure we did the shots I had requested in her pre-session surveys (I tend to get a little forgetful and/or intimidated making those requests in the moment, so I loved getting to think through things before and then know Julie would make sure it happened) she's truly wonderful to work with. Sessions didn't feel rushed, and we got our GORGEOUS photos back earlier than expected! Strongly recommend getting maternity and newborn photos to document the special time and strongly recommend Julie to do it!"

"Julie was AMAZING during our newborn session. She was very quick to respond and set up a session with. During the session she was very professional and patient with our rambunctious 15 month old, and patient with the new baby when she got fussy. The pictures turned out so amazing, and if we every need a photographer in the future, we will definitely be reaching out to her."


Jessica s.

She was very professional and patient. The pictures turned out so amazing

"We had a great experience with Julie! She is very prompt, professional, and organized. She had us complete a questionnaire before our shoot so she knew what we were looking for and things our daughter was interested in, which I thought was so great and have never had a photographer do before! The location she suggested was a hidden gem and even though our toddler wasn’t being the most cooperative, Julie was able to trick her into “looking for bugs” to get some great shots ! Our pictures turned out beautiful!"

"I have had a fabulous experience with Julie as our family photographer! From maternity photos, mommy and me photos, and family photos with grandparents, Julie was amazing. I'm plus size and was very nervous about feeling beautiful and having a 'nice bump' and not looking fat for my maternity photos. She provided and let me try on a few maternity dresses, listened to what I wanted, and gave me lots of tips on how to stand and pose. I have loved all of the results and am so thankful for Julie's down to earth personality! Also she remembered that our nursery theme was moon and stars and she had moon and star cookies made for us when she delivered our photo package. She goes above and beyond for her clients!"

"We could not be more happy with the photography done by Julie. From the beginning to the end, she was professional, kind and super responsive! She offered an extremely helpful outfit guide and bent over backwards to find a new time for us when the weather and COVID complications didn’t work in our favor. She made our first family photos a wonderful experience and sent our pictures over so fast! They are beautiful and will be cherished forever! Thank you Julie!"


sarah p.

"Julie did our fall/winter maternity shoot! It was so easy to book our session with her, and she even provided dresses for me to try on and use if I wanted to. On the day of the shoot, she was so great and told us exactly what she needed to get the best pictures. She also wore a mask the entire shoot and made sure we weren’t too close to others at the photo location when our masks had to be off. Our pictures turned out great, and I would highly recommend her to other expecting moms!"


Maddy g.

It was so easy to book our session with her and she even provided dresses for me

"We had a great time working with Julie! She did a good job directing us to get great photos, especially with a one-year-old baby! We love all the photos that she took and are so glad that we worked with her to have these memories captured!"


Jean H.

We love all the photos she took and are so glad we worked with her to have these memories captured

"Julie's down to earth personality and eye for photography and detail will complete any session. I worked with her for an hour for my maternity shoot on a hot day in May 2020 and it was a blast! It felt natural and comfortable just chatting away posing while she did her thing. She gives great direction on poses and even let me include my dog, Murphy! 5 STARS- Highly Recommend!"

It felt natural and comfortable

"Julie did a wonderful job! We are so pleased with the photos and she was great to work with. She handled working with our active toddler so well. She was professional and adaptable. She came prepared to the venue, had done her own research for shoot locations and made use of the lighting. Thank you Julie!"
